Best/Worst Daily ETF Returns: Commodities Fall

IndexUniverse.com

The Teucrium WTI Crude Oil Fund (NYSEArca CRUD) was the worst-performing ETF yesterday, losing 6.89 percent during a session in which a variety of commodity funds lost money.

The S'P GSCI Spot Index, which tracks 24 raw materials, was down 0.7 percent to close at 624, yesterday. It was the index’s lowest level since Dec. 20, amid investor concerns that Greece will leave the eurozone—a prospect that would surely put the brakes on the potential demand for raw materials.

Five of the funds on the bottom-performers list were related to agriculture.
