Best/Worst Daily ETF Returns: EGPT Drops 6.89%

Cinthia Murphy

The Market Vectors Egypt ETF (EGPT - News) was the worst-performing fund Monday, July 9, shedding 6.89 percent of value as the broad stock market gave up ground to renewed concerns that the global economy seems to be slowing down.

The Dow Jones industrial average closed 36.18 points lower, or 0.28 percent, at 12,736.29 Monday amid light trading, as concerns about the U.S. earnings season, Europe’s debt woes and slowed growth in Asia all undermined investor confidence.

The Global X China Financials ETF (CHIX - News) and the Global X China Industrials ETF (CHII - News) were also among the day’s bottom performers, giving up 3.03 percent and 2.65 percent, respectively.

On the flip side, commodities-linked funds led a rally that landed the Teucrium Corn ETF (CORN - News) at the top of the best performers’ list for the day. CORN gained 5 percent Monday, as the market continued to price in expectations for declining yield potential across the much of the U.S. grain belt.

The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration Monday said that the first half of 2012 was the warmest on record for the contiguous U.S., and that the heat is expected to continue. The Teucrium Soybeans ETF (SOYB - News) was another top gainer, rallying 3.5 percent on the day.
