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.
The weakness seen from GAZ and the United States Natural Gas Fund ( UNG) has done little to quell the strength seen from the equity-backed First Trust ISE Revere Natural Gas Index Fund ( FCG). The fund is up nearly 5% in early afternoon trading. iShares Barclays 20+ Year Treasury Bond Fund ( TLT) -0.5% As market tensions ease and investors regain confidence, defensive asset classes are falling out of favor. The long term U.S. Treasury-tracking TLT is sliding to a second day of losses, approaching its 50-day moving average. The PowerShares DB U.S. Dollar Index Bullish Fund ( UUP) is slipping as well.
