It was a happy hump day for the S&P/ASX 200 Index (ASX: XJO) and most ASX shares this Wednesday as investors shook off the negativity that hit the markets yesterday.

As of the market close, the ASX 200 had added a healthy 0.41%, pushing the index up to a flat 7,769 points.

This happy Wednesday for ASX investors comes after an equally rosy night of trading up on Wall Street.

The Dow Jones Industrial Average Index (DJX: .DJI) had a great time, getting a 0.36% bump up.

The Nasdaq Composite Index (NASDAQ: .IXIC) fared similarly, gaining 0.17%

But returning to the ASX boards now, lets take stock of how the different ASX sectors dealt with today's good mood on the markets.

Winners and losers

Despite the market's rise, we still saw a few sectors record a loss for the day.

Leading the losers was the mining sector. The S&P/ASX 200 Materials Index (ASX: XMJ) had a horrid day, tanking by 1.11%.

The same could be said for gold shares. The All Ordinaries Gold Index (ASX: XGD) slumped 1.03%.

It seems commodities were on the nose, as energy stocks also suffered this Wednesday. The S&P/ASX 200 Energy Index (ASX: XEJ) ended up losing 0.91%.

Tech shares were also on the nose, as you can see from the S&P/ASX 200 Information Technology Index (ASX: XIJ)'s 0.61% slide.

But that's it for the losers. Turning to the winners now, it was communications stocks that came out on top. The S&P/ASX 200 Communication Services Index (ASX: XTJ) surged 2.01% higher by the market close.

Healthcare shares also had a cracking day, with the S&P/ASX 200 Healthcare Index (ASX: XHJ) leaping up 1.69%.

ASX consumer staples stocks were hot property too, illustrated by the S&P/ASX 200 Consumer Staples Index (ASX: XSJ)'s 1.57% gallop higher.

It was the same story for real estate investment trusts (REITs). The S&P/ASX 200 A-REIT Index (ASX: XPJ) also soared by 1.57%.

Consumer discretionary shares were another bright spot, with the S&P/ASX 200 Consumer Discretionary Index (ASX: XDJ) banking a robust 1.11%.

Industrial stocks were also making investors happy. The S&P/ASX 200 Industrials Index (ASX: XNJ) bounced 0.73% higher today.

As were financial shares. The S&P/ASX 200 Financials Index (ASX: XFJ) lifted by 0.62%.

Our final winners were utilities stocks. The S&P/ASX 200 Utilities Index (ASX: XUJ) managed to wrangle a rise of 0.43%.

Top 10 ASX 200 shares countdown

The top ASX stock on the index this hump day was Treasury Wine Estates Ltd (ASX: TWE).

Treasury shares soared 5.27% higher today up to $11.99 a share. This gain came after the company reaffirmed its FY2024 guidance last night and outlined plans for growth in the North American markets. Investors seem to approve.

Here's a look at the rest of this Wednesday's winners:

Treasury Wine Estates Ltd (ASX: TWE) $11.99 5.27%
