The S&P/ASX 200 Index (ASX: XJO) has ended its three-day winning streak with a disappointing finish to the trading week today.

At the conclusion of today's session, the ASX 200 had recorded a notable drop of 0.93%, pulling the index down to 7,115.2 points. Not exactly the most pleasant way to start a weekend.

Today's retreat on the local markets isn't too much of a surprise though, considering the selloff we saw on Wall Street overnight.

The Dow Jones Industrial Average Index (DJX: .DJI) had a horrible time last night, falling by a chunky 1.08%. The Nasdaq Composite Index (NASDAQ: .IXIC) had an even worse time, plunging by a hefty 1.87%.

But back to the ASX now, and let's now take stock of how the various ASX sectors fared during today's tough session.

Winners and losers

Given the size of today's market fall, it's not much of a shock to see almost all of the individual sectors retreating as well.

Leading the fallers this Friday was the ASX tech space. The S&P/ASX 200 Information Technology Index (ASX: XIJ) gave investors another big move to deal with today, falling by a nasty 2.51%.

That was as bad as it got, but ASX mining shares weren't having fun today either. The S&P/ASX 200 Materials Index (ASX: XMJ) was on the nose, dropping by 1.55%.

Energy stocks were close behind the miners, with the S&P/ASX 200 Energy Index (ASX: XEJ) recording a 1.44% hit.

Utilities shares weren't quite as shunned, but the S&P/ASX 200 Utilities Index (ASX: XUJ) still recorded a 1.25% fall.

Financials stocks weren't much better, evidenced by the S&P/ASX 200 Financials Index (ASX: XFJ)'s retreat of 1.12%.

ASX gold shares weren't giving investors any respite either. The All Ordinaries Gold Index (ASX: XGD) tanked by 0.51% this session.

Then we have communications shares and healthcare stocks to add to the losers. The S&P/ASX 200 Communication Services Index (ASX: XTJ) lost 0.64%, while the S&P/ASX 200 Healthcare Index (ASX: XHJ) ended up going down by 0.24%.

In fact, there were only two corners of the market today that managed to eke out a gain.

Leading the charge were consumer staples shares. The S&P/ASX 200 Consumer Staples Index (ASX: XSJ) ended up rising by an encouraging 0.68%. The consumer discretionary space wasn't quite as bubbly, but the S&P/ASX 200 Consumer Discretionary Index (ASX: XDJ) still managed a respectable 0.30% bump.

Top 10 ASX 200 shares countdown

Given today's hefty selloff, we saw a distinctively more muted performance from the top shares on the markets today compared to earlier this week.

But today's top performer in IRESS Ltd (ASX: IRE) still impressed. The IRESS share price soared a healthy 9.89% to $6.78 a share. That was despite any meaningful news out of the company.

Here are the rest of this Friday's ASX A-team:

ASX-listed company Share price Price change
IRESS Ltd (ASX: IRE) $6.78 9.89%
Lovisa Holdings Ltd (ASX: LOV) $22.56 6.26%
Wesfarmers Ltd (ASX: WES) $51.00 3.20%
Telix Pharmaceuticals Ltd (ASX: TLX) $10.44 2.96%
Qube Holdings Ltd (ASX: QUB) $3.02 2.72%
Endeavour Group Ltd (ASX: EDV) $5.50 2.04%
Medibank Private Ltd (ASX: MPL) $3.57 1.71%
Silver Lake Resources Ltd (ASX: SLR) $0.875 1.16%
