NEW YORK (TheStreet) -- Here are this week's winners and losers.
iShares MSCI Thailand Investable Market Index Fund ( THD) -6.7% Thailand's markets have suffered a steep sell-off over the past month as resounding economic concerns leads droves of investors to shed exposure to risky market corners. Heading into the start of October, shares of THD are trading at new 2011 lows. Investors should use extreme caution when venturing into the emerging markets. As economic turmoil continues to dominate headlines, these nations will likely behave in a volatile manner. Market Vectors Junior Gold Miners ETF ( GDXJ) -5.4% Compared to gold miners, physical gold ETFs saw relatively contained losses. The iShares Gold Trust ( IAU) ended the week down slightly more than 1%. With this week's decline, GDXJ has returned to levels last seen during the final months of 2010. During the start of next week, palladium and platinum could be interesting to watch as auto and truck sales numbers are released. These two metals can be watched, using the ETFS Physical Palladium Shares ( PALL) and ETFS Physical Platinum Shares ( PPLT). Written by Don Dion in Williamstown, Mass.
