NEW YORK ( TheStreet) -- Welcome to Don Dion's "ETF Winners and Losers." Be sure to stop by throughout the week to find out which ETFs are gaining or losing.
Vietnam appears to be bucking the trend. Despite losses seen across the globe, the Market Vectors Vietnam ETF is relatively unchanged, actually sitting in slight positive territory. Market Vectors Junior Gold Miners ETF ( GDXJ) -3.7% Gold prices are relatively unchanged, with the iShares Gold Trust ( IAU) witnessing only slight losses. The downward market action, however, is doing little to buoy the companies responsible for unearthing the yellow metal. Other precious metal ETFs are falling as well. Both ETFS Physical Palladium Shares ( PALL) and iShares Silver Trust ( SLV) are off over 3% in afternoon trading. All prices as of 2:15 PM EST Written by Don Dion in Williamstown, Mass.
