It's been a pleasing recovery for the S&P/ASX 200 Index (ASX: XJO) this Tuesday, after yesterday's pessimistic start to the trading week. By close of trading today, the ASX 200 had added a happy 0.42% to its value, leaving the index at 7,056.1 points.

This healthy move higher for the Australian markets follows a rosy night of trading up on Wall Street overnight.

The Dow Jones Industrial Average Index (DJX: .DJI) gave American investors a strong night of gains, rising by 0.93%. It was even better for the Nasdaq Composite Index (NASDAQ: .IXIC), which rocketed a happy 1.2%.

Time to return to the ASX though, and see what was moving and shaking on the share market today with the different ASX sectors.

Winners and losers

Today's worst sector was the healthcare space. The S&P/ASX 200 Healthcare Index (ASX: XHJ) led the losers today, with a tumble of 1.21%.

Utilities shares were also on the nose, with the S&P/ASX 200 Utilities Index (ASX: XUJ) falling 0.28%.

Next on the red list were ASX consumer discretionary stocks. The S&P/ASX 200 Consumer Discretionary Index (ASX: XDJ) ended up retreating by 0.26%.

That sector's consumer staples counterparts only managed to do slightly better. The S&P/ASX 200 Consumer Staples Index (ASX: XSJ) ended up slipping by 0.14%.

Gold stocks were also poor performers this Tuesday, evidenced by the All Ordinaries Gold Index (ASX: XGD)'s loss of 0.22%.

But that's it for the red corners of the market. Turning to the green ones, and it was ASX tech shares that came out on top. The S&P/ASX 200 Information Technology Index (ASX: XIJ) recorded a happy rise of 1.33% this Tuesday.

Hot on tech's heels were Real estate investment trusts (REITs). REITs were on form, with the S&P/ASX 200 A-REIT Index (ASX: XPJ) gaining a pleasing 1.11%.

ASX financials shares were another bright spot. The S&P/ASX 200 Financials Index (ASX: XFJ) ended up rising 0.78% this session.

Communications shares were almost as lucrative, with the S&P/ASX 200 Communication Services Index (ASX: XTJ) shooting up 0.75%.

Mining companies also made their investors some money today. The S&P/ASX 200 Materials Index (ASX: XMJ) finished trading with a 0.73% gain.

Finally, ASX energy shares had a pleasant time of it today as well. The S&P/ASX 200 Energy Index (ASX: XEJ) ended up inching 0.1% higher.

Top 10 ASX 200 shares countdown

Today's crown for best-performing stock on the index goes to REIT Cromwell Property Group (ASX: CMW). Cromwell units rocketed a whopping 9.72% today up to 39.5 cents each.

That's despite no obvious catalyst for this big move.
