U.S. stocks started Tuesday's session higher, as U.S.-China trade negotiations are resuming. U.S. trade representative Robert Lighthizer and Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin will be in China for the negotiations this week.

The Dow Jones Industrial Average opened 0.8% higher at 25,709, and the S&P 500 kicked the session off 0.6% higher at 2,815. The technology-heavy Nasdaq Composite Index opened 0.8% stronger at 7,701. Apple Inc. remained in focus after the tech giant unveiled a number of new services as the company shifts from products like the iPhone. Elsewhere, Bed Bath & Beyond climbed higher following a report by The Wall Street Journal saying three activist investors are preparing to launching a proxy fight to replace the company's board.

On the economic data front, the consumer-confidence index for March, expected at 133, is due at 10 a.m. Eastern. Earlier, February housing starts came in better than anticipated. Building permits for February and the Case-Shiller home price index for January eased slightly from the previous months.
