Best/Worst Daily ETF Returns: QAI Off 4.34%


IndexIQ's IQ Hedge Multi-Strategy Tracker (NYSEArca:QAI) was one of the worst-performing funds Wednesday, July 11, shedding 4.34 percent in value as the broad stock market continued on a soft tone amid what's starting out as a lackluster quarterly corporate earnings report season.

Wednesday, the Dow Jones industrial average dropped 45.59 points to close 0.4 percent lower at 12,604.53.

QAI, which is a hedge fund replication strategy, was also at the center of a "terrible trade" just two days prior that cost an investor some $500,000 in a market-on-close order that could have been avoided.

Also at the bottom Wednesday was the Columbia Large-Cap Growth Strategy (NYSEArca:RWG), which slid 7.7 percent on the day amid thin trading volume.

On the flip side, among the best-performing funds were a flurry of energy-linked ETFs and ETNs, with the United States Natural Gas Fund (NYSEArca:UNG) leading the charge, with gains of 3.58 percent. More than 12.19 million shares of UNG traded hands Wednesday.
