NEW YORK ( TheStreet) -- Welcome to Don Dion's Daily ETF Winners and Losers. Be sure to stop by each day to find out who's winning and who's losing when it comes to ETFs.
Market Vectors Gold Miners ETF ( GDX) -2.4% Gold miner ETFs are heading south, leading a diverse pack of precious metal-related ETFs to losses. Interestingly, although producers are lagging, physically-backed gold funds like iShares Gold Trust ( IAU) are generally unchanged. Although they have run into headwinds, I feel that the gold mining industry may be a market region to keep an eye on in the near future.
