The S&P/ASX 200 Index (ASX: XJO) broke a three-session-long losing streak on Tuesday, gaining 0.18% to close at 7,430.9 points.

It came on the back of a strong session on Wall Street. The Dow Jones Industrial Average Index (DJX: .DJI) and the S&P 500 Index (SP: .INX) both rose 1.1% overnight while the tech-heavy Nasdaq Composite Index (NASDAQ: .IXIC) gained 1.5%.

It makes sense then that the S&P/ASX 200 Information Technology Index (ASX: XIJ) posted the biggest gain on the Aussie index, rising 1.3%.

The S&P/ASX 200 Communications Index (ASX: XTJ) also outperformed, gaining 1.1% with the Domain Holdings Australia Ltd (ASX: DHG) share price leading the way, lifting 5.5%.

Meanwhile, market giant CSL Limited (ASX: CSL) saw its share price rise 0.9% on the back of the company's half-year earnings.

On the other end of the market, the S&P/ASX 200 Energy Index (ASX: XMJ) and the S&P/ASX 200 Materials Index (ASX: XMJ) fell 0.4% and 0.2% respectively.

But which ASX 200 share outperformed all others on Tuesday? Let's take a look.
