The S&P/ASX 200 Index (ASX: XJO) enjoyed another top day this Thursday, with most ASX shares punching higher.

By the time trading wrapped up, the ASX 200 had gained a rosy 0.68%, pushing the index back up to 7,821.8 points.

This joyous trading day for Australian investors follows a decent night over on the American markets as well.

The Dow Jones Industrial Average Index (DJX: .DJI) had a solid showing, rising 0.25%.

It was far better for the tech-heavy Nasdaq Composite Index (NASDAQ: .IXIC) though, which rocketed 1.96% higher.

But let's get back to the local markets now, with a look at how the various ASX sectors went during today's optimistic buying.

Winners and losers

We saw every single sector on the market record a rise today.

Leading the charge were gold stocks. The All Ordinaries Gold Index (ASX: XGD) had a huge day exploding 2.19% higher.

Tech shares also had a great time, with the S&P/ASX 200 Information Technology Index (ASX: XIJ) surging 1.41%.

So did ASX financial stocks. The S&P/ASX 200 Financials Index (ASX: XFJ) flew 0.95% upwards this Thursday.

Another bright spot was the healthcare space. The S&P/ASX 200 Healthcare Index (ASX: XHJ) soared 0.94%.

Then we had industrial shares. The S&P/ASX 200 Industrials Index (ASX: XNJ) was in demand too, rising by 0.84%.

Consumer staples stocks saw nice buying pressure as well, as you can see from the S&P/ASX 200 Consumer Staples Index (ASX: XSJ)'s 0.69% jump.

Its consumer discretionary counterpart joined the party as well, evident from the S&P/ASX 200 Consumer Discretionary Index (ASX: XDJ)'s 0.56% gain.

Utilities shares put up some decent numbers as well. The S&P/ASX 200 Utilities Index (ASX: XUJ) appreciated by 0.52% this session.

Real estate investment trusts (REITs) were also seeing some action, with the S&P/ASX 200 A-REIT Index (ASX: XPJ) bouncing 0.4% higher.

Mining shares were making their investors happy. The S&P/ASX 200 Materials Index (ASX: XMJ) lifted 0.4%.

Communications stocks could say the same. The S&P/ASX 200 Communication Services Index (ASX: XTJ) enjoyed a 0.29% bump today.

Our final winners were energy shares. The S&P/ASX 200 Energy Index (ASX: XEJ) nearly broke with its stablemates but managed to wrangle out a 0.01% increase by market close.
