Best/Worst Daily ETF Returns: EU Rises 5.27%

Devon Layne

The iPath Dow Jones-UBS Cotton Total Return ETN (BAL - News) was the top-performing ETF on Friday, with 6.48 percent in returns, as investors were once again attracted to commodities, as faith in major U.S. indexes grew resulting from talks of help for troubled Spanish banks.

The possible assistance for Spanish banks vaulted the WisdomTree Euro (EU - News) to the No. 2 spot on the list, jumping 5.27 percent. The iShares MSCI Spain Fund (EWP - News) was No. 7, returning 2.54 percent, and the iShares MSCI Turkey Investable Market Fund (TUR - News) rated the No. 8 spot, gaining 2.46 percent on Friday.

The Dow Jones industrial average added 93.20 points, or 0.75 percent, to end the day at 12,554.20, pacing gains in the ETF market.

The Russell Equity Income ETF (EQIN - News), returned 4.10 percent, while the Guggenheim S'P MidCap 400 Equal Weight ETF (EWMD - News) gained 3.80 percent, according to data compiled by IndexUniverse.

Bottom Performers

The Etracs 1-Month S'P 500 VIX Futures ETN (VXAA - News) was the worst-performing exchange-traded product on Friday, shedding 14.52 percent. Volatility-related ETNs move in the opposite direction of equities markets.

Thus, many of the worst-performing ETPs on Friday were volatility products.

The iShares FTSE China (Hong Kong Listed) Index Fund (FCHI - News) and the iShares FTSE China 25 (FXI - News) rounded out the list, losing 2.88 percent and 2.84 percent, respectively, as reports of a slowing Chinese economy continue to fuel investor wariness.
