The S&P/ASX 200 Index (ASX: XJO) enjoyed another positive session today, as the recovery from last week's slump continues. A confident session saw the ASX 200 add a decent 0.45% this Tuesday, leaving the index at 7,683.5 points.

This happy day of trading follows an upbeat beginning to the American trading week up on Wall Street last night.

The Dow Jones Industrial Average Index (DJX: .DJI) gave a decisive showing, rising by 0.67%.

The Nasdaq Composite Index (NASDAQ: .IXIC) was off to the races though, flying a happy 1.11% higher.

But time now to return to the ASX, and see where the different ASX sectors ended up following today's trading.

Winners and losers

Despite today's gains, we still had a few stinkers amongst the different corners of the ASX.

Most prominent of those were again gold stocks. The All Ordinaries Gold Index (ASX: XGD) had another shocker, cratering by 3.42%.

Energy shares were also again on the receiving end of it, with the S&P/ASX 200 Energy Index (ASX: XEJ) tanking 0.78%.

Industrial stocks also missed out. The S&P/ASX 200 Industrials Index (ASX: XNJ) ended up sliding 0.29%.

Mining shares were in the red too, as you can see from the S&P/ASX 200 Materials Index (ASX: XMJ)'s slip of 0.26%.

But that's it for the losers today.

This Tuesday's winners were spearheaded by tech stocks. The S&P/ASX 200 Information Technology Index (ASX: XIJ) had a cracker, shooting up 1.73%.

Healthcare shares lived up to their name as well, with the S&P/ASX 200 Healthcare Index (ASX: XHJ) getting a 1.22% booster.

Financial stocks were another bright spot. The S&P/ASX 200 Financials Index (ASX: XFJ) banked a gain of 1.1%.

Real estate investment trusts (REITs) were close behind that. The S&P/ASX 200 A-REIT Index (ASX: XPJ) saw its value rise by 0.71%.

Utilities shares had a great day as well, evidenced by the S&P/ASX 200 Utilities Index (ASX: XUJ)'s 0.46% spike.

Communications shares wrangled out a rise too. The S&P/ASX 200 Communication Services Index (ASX: XTJ) saw a lift of 0.27%.

Consumer staples stocks and Consumer discretionary shares were our final two winners. The S&P/ASX 200 Consumer Staples Index (ASX: XSJ) and the S&P/ASX 200 Consumer Discretionary Index (ASX: XDJ) eked out bumps of 0.24% and 0.09% respectively.
