The S&P/ASX 200 Index (ASX: XJO) enjoyed a resurgence today, bouncing back with a vengeance after yesterday's miserable start to the trading week.

By the time the markets shut up shop, the ASX 200 had added a pleasing 1.36%, leaving the index at 7,838.8 points.

This happy Tuesday for ASX shares comes after a mixed night of trading over on the American markets overnight.

The Dow Jones Industrial Average Index (DJX: .DJI) started its week off in fine form, rising 0.67%.

The Nasdaq Composite Index (NASDAQ: .IXIC) couldn't say the same though, enduring a 1.09% slide.

Getting back to the local markets now though, it's time for a look at how the various ASX sectors traversed today's goodwill.

Winners and losers

It was all smiles on the ASX boards this Tuesday, with not one sector going backwards.

The worst place to be, if we can say that, was in gold stocks though. The All Ordinaries Gold Index (ASX: XGD) was a little muted, managing to inch up 0.23%.

Tech shares were also a little underwhelming today, given the S&P/ASX 200 Information Technology Index (ASX: XIJ) eked out a rise of 0.32%.

Utilities shares weren't too different from that, as you can see from the S&P/ASX 200 Utilities Index (ASX: XUJ)'s gain of 0.37%.

Industrial stocks upped the ante though. The S&P/ASX 200 Industrials Index (ASX: XNJ) rose by a confident 0.62%.

Communications shares did better again, with the S&P/ASX 200 Communication Services Index (ASX: XTJ) galloping 0.78% higher.

ASX healthcare stocks lived up to their name today. The S&P/ASX 200 Healthcare Index (ASX: XHJ) scored a 0.85% increase by the closing bell.

Investors were also buying up consumer staples stocks. The S&P/ASX 200 Consumer Staples Index (ASX: XSJ) lifted by 1.16%.

Consumer discretionary shares really benefitted though, with the S&P/ASX 200 Consumer Discretionary Index (ASX: XDJ) racing up 1.23%.

Financial stocks were on fire today. The S&P/ASX 200 Financials Index (ASX: XFJ) ended up banking a gain of 1.45%.

The same could be said of real estate investment trusts (REITs). The S&P/ASX 200 A-REIT Index (ASX: XPJ) surged by a happy 1.66%.

Mining stocks were running hot too, evident from the S&P/ASX 200 Materials Index (ASX: XMJ) soaring 1.83%.

Finally, energy shares were the best place to be today. The S&P/ASX 200 Energy Index (ASX: XEJ) ended up rocketing a jubilant 2.23% by the close of trading.
