Market Vectors Junior Gold Miners ETF ( GDXJ) -1.3%

Miner-backed precious metal ETFs are taking a hit as the markets trade in mixed fashion. While the small, volatile members of the junior miner universe are taking the biggest hits, silver producers are not immune from the downturn.

Physically-based funds like iShares Silver Trust ( SLV) are witnessing weak action as well.
