The S&P/ASX 200 Index (ASX: XJO) had a rough start to the trading week this Monday.

After falling by a nasty 2.6% over the course of last week's trading, it seems ASX  investors are in no mood to reverse this trend. By the end of trading today, the ASX 200 had fallen another 0.46%, leaving the index at 7,115.5 points.

This negative start to the trading week today comes after a shaky trading up on Wall Street last Friday night (our time).

The Dow Jones Industrial Average Index (DJX: .DJI) did record a gain, but a slim one, rising 0.075%. The Nasdaq Composite Index (NASDAQ: .IXIC) wasn't as lucky and dipped by 0.2%.

But enough of last week. So let's check out what happened on the local markets today with a look at the winners and losers out of the different ASX sectors.

Winners and losers

It was a fairly dire day on the markets this Monday, with only a handful of sectors managing a gain.

But let's start with the biggest losers. Leading the losses was the S&P/ASX 200 Consumer Staples Index (ASX: XSJ). Consumer staples stocks were in the firing line today, with the index losing a chunky 1.34%.

ASX tech shares also fared poorly. The S&P/ASX 200 Information Technology Index (ASX: XIJ) ended up retreating by 1.32%.

Healthcare shares weren't of any comfort, with the S&P/ASX 200 Healthcare Index (ASX: XHJ) sliding 0.95%.

Ditto with the communications sector. The S&P/ASX 200 Communication Services Index (ASX: XTJ) slipped by 0.93%.

Financials shares weren't giving any respite either. The S&P/ASX 200 Financials Index (ASX: XFJ) lost 0.85% this Monday.

ASX gold stocks failed to fulfil their traditional role as a safe haven. The All Ordinaries Gold Index (ASX: XGD) tanked by 0.86%.

Then we had ASX mining stocks to round out with. The S&P/ASX 200 Materials Index (ASX: XMJ) ended up 0.08% lower by the end of trading today.

There were only a couple of sectors that didn't give investors a bloody nose today.

Most prominent amongst those was the consumer discretionary sector. The S&P/ASX 200 Consumer Discretionary Index (ASX: XDJ) delighted investors today with a healthy 0.83% rise.

Energy shares were another bright spot. The S&P/ASX 200 Energy Index (ASX: XEJ) rose by an encouraging 0.65%.
