ETFS Physical Platinum Shares ( PPLT) -0.9% Despite silver's rise, not all precious metals are witnessing strength as the week comes to a close. On the contrary, the physically-based platinum ETF, PPLT is among the day's biggest losers. Over the most recent 30-day period, PPLT has been a notable laggard compared to other bullion-based precious metal ETFs. iPath S&P 500 VIX Mid Term Futures ETN ( VXZ) -0.7% The market's late morning turnaround put pressure on a handful of VIX-related ETFs including VXZ.
