It was another strong day for the S&P/ASX 200 Index (ASX: XJO) this Tuesday, despite an early morning dip into red territory.

After recording a rise yesterday, by the end of trading, the ASX 200 finished up 0.35% higher today, leaving the index at 7,664.1 points.

This happy Tuesday comes after a strong start to the trading week for American investors overnight.

The Dow Jones Industrial Average Index (DJX: .DJI) kicked off its week on a strong footing, gaining 0.38%.

The Nasdaq Composite Index (NASDAQ: .IXIC) also had a decent time, rising 0.35%.

But let's get back to the ASX, and have a look at what the various ASX sectors were doing today.

Winners and losers

Despite the market's rise, we still had a mix of both winners and losers today.

Leading the losers were gold stocks. The All Ordinaries Gold Index (ASX: XGD) tanked by a meaningful 0.8% by the close of trading.

Industrial shares also had a day to forget. The S&P/ASX 200 Industrials Index (ASX: XNJ) was sold off by 0.53%.

Utilities stocks were another sore spot, with the S&P/ASX 200 Utilities Index (ASX: XUJ) shedding 0.12%.

Tech stocks gave up some of yesterday's gains as well, with the S&P/ASX 200 Information Technology Index (ASX: XIJ) sliding 0.05%.

But that's it for the losers. Turning to the winners now, and it was real estate investment trusts (REITs) leading the charge. The S&P/ASX 200 A-REIT Index (ASX: XPJ) surged by a convincing 0.85%.

Consumer discretionary shares were also on fire, with the S&P/ASX 200 Consumer Discretionary Index (ASX: XDJ) jumping 0.79%.

Healthcare stocks were making investors happy too. The S&P/ASX 200 Healthcare Index (ASX: XHJ) got a 0.45% booster shot this Tuesday.

Financial shares were in demand. The S&P/ASX 200 Financials Index (ASX: XFJ) ended up banking a gain of 0.43%.

Mining stocks weren't far off that. The S&P/ASX 200 Materials Index (ASX: XMJ) received a 0.4% bump.

Consumer staples shares had a confident day as well. The S&P/ASX 200 Consumer Staples Index (ASX: XSJ) lifted 0.25% today.

ASX communications stocks weren't left out, evidenced by the S&P/ASX 200 Communication Services Index (ASX: XTJ)'s 0.1% rise.

Energy shares were last and least on the green list today, with the S&P/ASX 200 Energy Index (ASX: XEJ) inching 0.07% higher.
