The B2B Internet HOLDRs (BHH) ETF was also higher, as Ariba (ARBA) was gaining 2.8%. The ETF was climbing 3 cents, or 1.5%, to $2.09.

The iShares Dow Jones U.S. Broker-Dealers (IAI) was also rising. Holdings InterContinental Exchange (ICE - Get Report) and Morgan Stanley (MS - Get Report) were recently up 1.3%.

The ETF was adding 20 cents, or 0.4%, to $52.53.

On the flipside, energy-related ETFs were among the worst performers of the day. The front-month April contract, trading for the last time, was losing 22 cents to $56.37 a barrel.

Bundled securities tracking homebuilders were mixed following key economic data. Before the opening bell, the government said U.S. housing starts jumped 9% in February to 1.525 million annualized units, retracing some of January's 14% drop. However, building permits eased 2.5% last month, disappointing some economists

The iShares Dow Jones U.S. Home Construction (ITB) ETF was recently down 0.6% at $36.21. Meanwhile, the SPDR Homebuilders (XHB) ETF was higher by 0.1% at $34.03.
