The Market Vectors Egypt ETF (NYSEArca:EGPT) was the
worst-performing fund Monday, July 9, shedding 6.89 percent of
value as the broad stock market gave up ground to renewed
concerns that the global economy seems to be slowing down.
The Dow Jones industrial average closed 36.18 points lower, or
0.28 percent, at 12,736.29 Monday amid light trading, as concerns
about the U.S. earnings season, Europe's debt woes and slowed
growth in Asia all undermined investor confidence.
The Global X China Financials ETF (NYSEArca:CHIX) and the
Global X China Industrials ETF (NYSEArca:CHII) were also among
the day's bottom performers, giving up 3.03 percent and 2.65
On the flip side, commodities-linked funds led a rally that
landed the Teucrium Corn ETF (NYSEArca:CORN) at the top of the
best performers' list for the day. CORN gained 5 percent Monday,
as the market continued to price in expectations for declining
yield potential across the much of the U.S. grain belt.
The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration Monday
said that the first half of 2012 was the warmest on record for
the contiguous U.S., and that the heat is expected to continue.
The Teucrium Soybeans ETF (NYSEArca:SOYB) was another top gainer,
rallying 3.5 percent on the day.
