The S&P/ASX 200 Index (ASX: XJO) slumped lower on Friday, marking the end to what was likely a disappointing week for Australian investors. The index closed 1.4% lower at 6,747 points today.

That leaves the ASX 200 2.14% lower than it was at the end of last week, mostly due to Wednesday's disastrous session.

The S&P/ASX 200 Energy Index (ASX: XEJ) weighed heaviest today, falling 3%. The sector's suffering likely came on the back of falling oil prices.

The Brent crude oil price fell 3.5% to US$90.84 a barrel overnight while the US Nymex crude oil price dropped 3.8% to US$85.10 a barrel.

Mining giants also dragged on the market, with the S&P/ASX 200 Materials Index (ASX: XMJ) dumping 2.3%.

Gold futures slumped 1.9% to US$1,677.30 an ounce overnight while iron ore futures lifted 0.1% to US$100.58 a tonne. Meanwhile, the price of nickel fell 4.5% and that of copper slipped 0.6%.

Today's top performing sectors were the S&P/ASX 200 Utilities Index (ASX: XUJ) and the S&P/ASX 200 Information Technology Index (ASX: XIJ). They fell 0.4% and 0.6% respectively.

But which ASX 200 share outperformed all others? Keep reading to find out.
