Best/Worst Daily ETF Returns: EWAS Off 7.81%

By
A A A

A wide variety of funds were slammed by the stampede out of the market yesterday, none more so than the iShares MSCI Australia Small Cap (NYSEArca:EWAS).

The ETF was No. 1 on IndexUniverse's "Bottom 10 1-Day Performers" list, with 7.81 percent in losses, reflecting the weak economic data that has been coming out of Australia in the past couple of weeks.

Several of the worst-performing funds were in emerging markets, which have been buffeted by investor concerns about a potential global economic slowdown.


The No. 2 fund on the bottom-performers list was the EGShares Consumer Services GEMS ETF (NYSEArca:VGEM), which had 5.42 percent in losses.

Materials funds were hit especially hard, due in part to signs of slowing growth in China, a major consumer of commodities and industrial materials.

The No. 3 fund on the bottom performers list was the Global X China Materials ETF (NYSEArca:CHIM), which had 4.70 percent in losses.

The SPDR S&P International Materials ETF (NYSEArca:IRV) was No. 7 on the list, with 3.87 percent in losses.

The iPath Dow Jones-UBS Tin Total Return ETN (NYSEArca:JJT) was No. 10 on the list, with 3.08 percent in losses.

Top 10 1-Day Performers

The PowerShares DB Commodity Long ETN (NYSEArca:DPU) was No. 1 on IndexUniverse's "Top 10 1-Day Performers" list, with 8.02 percent in gains. Its rise suggested that despite the potential for slowing growth, commodities will regain their strength in the long run.

But until markets calm down, volatility-related exchange-traded products are likely to be among the top performers. Such securities littered the top 10 list yesterday.

As an example, the C-Tracks Exchange-Traded Notes on Citi Volatility (NYSEArca:CVOL) was No. 2 on the top performers list, with 5.51 percent in gains.

The VelocityShares VIX Short Term ETN (NYSEArca:VIX) was No. 3 on the list, with 3.89 percent in gains.

The ProShares VIX Short-Term Futures ETF (NYSEArca:VIXY) was No. 4 on the list, with 3.87 percent in gains, while the iPath S&P VIX Short-Term Futures ETN (NYSEArca:VXX) was No. 5 on the list, with 3.68 percent in gains.
