The iShares MSCI Global Select Metals & Mining Producers Index Fund (NYSEArca:PICK) was one of the worst-performing funds Thursday, July 12, shedding 3.82 percent of value amid another day of weakness in the broad stock market.

The Dow Jones industrial average closed lower for the sixth consecutive day Thursday, dropping 31.26 points, or 0.25 percent, to end at 12,573.27, still pressured by lackluster corporate earnings reports and forecasts, which have added fodder to fears that the global economy is slowing down. Gold prices were also down on the day, giving up 0.7 percent.

The market was eagerly awaiting China's second-quarter GDP figure, which many feared would rubber-stamp the notion that the global economy is on shaky legs. The number, released late Thursday evening, came in at 7.6 percent, confirming China's slower growth and spurring hopes of more stimulus measures ahead.

Commodities ETFs remained some of the best-performing funds, continuing to tag on gains on poor and still-deteriorating crop conditions across the U.S. grain belt.

The Teucrium Wheat ETF (NYSEArca:WEAT) and the Teucrium Corn ETF (NYSEArca:CORN) posted gains of more than 3 percent each Thursday, ranking as the two best-performing funds of the day.
