Monday's ETF Winners & Losers

The PowerShares Lux Nanotech (PXN) exchange-traded fund was the top performer of Monday's winning session, thanks to large gains in several of its holdings.

Among them, Altair Nanotechnologies (ALTI), Nanophase Technologies (NANX) and Elan (ELN) were all up more than 3%.

The PowerShares Lux Nanotech ETF was recently higher by 83 cents, or 4.8%, to $18.16.

An earnings beat by Merck (MRK) boosted several pharmaceutical ETFs. The Pharmaceutical HOLDRs (PPH) was gaining $1.78, or 2.2%, to $82.55. The SPDR S&P Pharmaceuticals (XPH) rose 57 cents, or 1.6%, to $35.88. The iShares Dow Jones U.S. Pharmaceuticals (IHE) was up 86 cents, or 1.5%, to $56.62.

Bundled securities tracking Chinese markets were also among the winners to start the week. Overnight, China's CSI 300 Index jumped nearly 5%.

Oil-related ETFs were also losing ground, as the new front-month September crude contract shed 89 cent to $74.90 a barrel.
