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.
In this morning's feature, I pointed to IGV as an attractive play for investors looking for relatively safe exposure to the tech sector. Although, a weak earnings showing from Oracle ( ORCL) has created turmoil for the fund in the near term, it continues to outperform against other single-industry technology ETFs. In order to avoid taking heavy losses, any exposure to IGV and other industry-specific ETFs should be kept small. iPath S&P 500 VIX Short Term Futures ETN ( VXX) -2.8% Although the U.S. markets are seeing tepid action, investors appear unwilling to succumb to fear. For a fifth session, the VIX-tracking VXX is heading lower. This descent has pushed the ETN back to its 200-day moving average. This is a level that has not been tested since the opening half of August.
