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.
