It's been a bumpy, but overall positive, start to the trading week for the S&P/ASX 200 Index (ASX: XJO) this Monday. After some rollercoastering during the trading day, the ASX 200 managed to finish the session in the green, pulling off a gain of 0.13% to 7,058.4 points by the closing bell.

This mild start to the trading week for ASX shares follows an equally anaemic finish to the American trading week last Friday night (our time).

The Dow Jones Industrial Average Index (DJX: .DJI) had a bumpy ride as well last Friday, eking out a small gain of 0.0052%. It was a very similar night for the Nasdaq Composite Index (NASDAQ: .IXIC), which almost matched the Dow's rise with a lift of 0.084%.

But back to the ASX, let's now take stock of how the different ASX sectors started their respective trading weeks this Monday.

Despite the slight rise for the broader market today, we still saw an overwhelming number of ASX sectors take a bath.

Winners and losers

Starting with the deepest bath, we have gold stocks to consider. The All Ordinaries Gold Index (ASX: XGD) convincingly came off the boil today, cratering by a horrid 1.63%.

Consumer staples shares were also unlucky. The S&P/ASX 200 Consumer Staples Index (ASX: XSJ) sunk 0.83% lower by the end of the day.

Utilities shares were right behind that, with the S&P/ASX 200 Utilities Index (ASX: XUJ) descending by 0.71%.

Healthcare stocks were another losing space. The S&P/ASX 200 Healthcare Index (ASX: XHJ) gave up an early rise to drop 0.4%.

Real estate investment trusts (REITs) weren't much better. The S&P/ASX 200 A-REIT Index (ASX: XPJ) slid 0.37% lower by day's end.

ASX communications shares proved to be another sore spot, evidenced by the S&P/ASX 200 Communication Services Index (ASX: XTJ)'s 0.29% drift lower.

It was the same story with industrials shares, with the S&P/ASX 200 Industrials Index (ASX: XNJ) falling by that same 0.29%.

Tech stocks didn't get out of the losers either. The S&P/ASX 200 Information Technology Index (ASX: XIJ) retreated by 0.12% at the close of trading.

Miners were our final loser of the day, but the S&P/ASX 200 Materials Index (ASX: XMJ) essentially closed flat.

Turning to the winners today, and we only have three sectors to discuss.

The most prominent of these turned out to be ASX energy shares. The S&P/ASX 200 Energy Index (ASX: XEJ) had a fantastic session, shooting up by a rosy 1.33%.

Consumer discretionary stocks came in next. The S&P/ASX 200 Consumer Discretionary Index (ASX: XDJ) also had a ball this Monday, gaining a solid 0.64%.

Finally, it was financial shares that we probably have to thank for the broader market's positive move. The S&P/ASX 200 Financials Index (ASX: XFJ) managed to close 0.56% higher by day's end.
