Today, the S&P/ASX 200 Index (ASX: XJO) offered an early Easter treat to investors with a move to the upside. At the end of the session, the benchmark index finished 0.59% higher at 7,523.4 points.

Recipients of the biggest gains were the mining and tech sectors, both surpassing 1% rallies today. Although, much of the market wasn’t too far behind, with a tinge of green showing up in just about every sector aside from financials.
