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 Junior Gold Miners ETF ( GDXJ) -1.8% Gold is falling out of favor as market strength drives investors into riskier asset classes. Reflecting the yellow metal's decline, small, volatile miners are running into headwinds. GDXJ has given back all of its 2011 gains and is currently trading at levels last seen in early November 2010. The large-cap focused Market Vectors Gold Miners ETF ( GDX) is faring better than its small-cap cousin. Shares were largely unchanged during early afternoon trading.
