The S&P/ASX 200 Index (ASX: XJO) has ended the selling slump that we've seen play out over the past week or so with a healthy gain this Tuesday. Probably delighting and prompting sighs of relief from investors everywhere, the ASX 200 banged out a strong gain this session, rising a healthy 0.56% to finish at 7,118.2 points.

Rather unusually, the ASX 200 managed to rise today even though we saw a lot of red ink on Wall Street overnight.

The Dow Jones Industrial Average Index (DJX: .DJI) had a bumpy but overall negative showing, falling by 0.04% last night, while the Nasdaq Composite Index (NASDAQ: .IXIC) dropped far harder, recording a loss of 1.16%.

Let's now dive in for a look at which ASX 200 sectors were behind these happy rises on the local share market though.

Winners and losers

As you might expect, it was a sunny day for most ASX sectors this Tuesday. Miners and real estate investment trusts (REITs) led the way, with the S&P/ASX 200 Materials Index (ASX: XMJ) and the S&P/ASX 200 A-REIT Index (ASX: XPJ) rising by 1.16% and 1.95% respectively.

Financials shares also had a solid session, exemplified by the S&P/ASX 200 Financials Index (ASX: XFJ) clocking a 0.66% gain.

ASX energy shares also had a decent showing, with the S&P/ASX 200 Energy Index (ASX: XEJ) lifting by 0.21%. As well, ASX consumer staples shares enjoyed the green today, with the S&P/ASX 200 Consumer Staples Index (ASX: XSJ) recording a 0.3% rise.

Turning to the more disappointing corners of the market, today's worst-performing sector turned out to be communications shares. The S&P/ASX 200 Communication Services Index (ASX: XTJ) lost 0.65% of its value.

ASX tech shares and industrials were also dragging down the markets. The S&P/ASX 200 Information Technology Index (ASX: XIJ) shed 0.37%, while the S&P/ASX Industrials Index (ASX: XNJ) lost 0.06%.
