It was another rough day for the S&P/ASX 200 Index (ASX: XJO) and many ASX shares this Tuesday. After yesterday's slow start to the trading week, the markets carried on the bad mood today.

By the time the closing bell rang, the ASX 200 had lost another 0.42%, leaving the index at 7,718.2 points.

This miserable Tuesday for ASX shares follows a more upbeat night of trading over on Wall Street last night.

The Dow Jones Industrial Average Index (DJX: DJI) had a shaky time, but still booked a 0.12% rise.

The Nasdaq Composite Index (NASDAQ: .IXIC) did much better though, banking a 0.83% gain.

But time now to return to the local markets and check out how the various ASX sectors handled today's negativity.

Winners and losers

There were only a couple of winning sectors on the ASX boards this Tuesday. But first, the losers.

Leading today's red sectors were real estate investment trusts (REITs). The S&P/ASX 200 A-REIT Index (ASX: XPJ) had a shocker today, plunging 1.46%.

Consumer discretionary shares had an awful day as well, illustrated by the S&P/ASX 200 Consumer Discretionary Index (ASX: XDJ)'s 0.92% tanking.

Mining stocks weren't too much better. The S&P/ASX 200 Materials Index (ASX: XMJ) cratered by 0.6%.

Then we had financial shares, with the S&P/ASX 200 Financials Index (ASX: XFJ) shedding 0.44% of its value.

Consumer staples stocks came next. The S&P/ASX 200 Consumer Staples Index (ASX: XSJ) saw its total reduce by 0.38%.

Industrial shares also counted themselves on the wrong side of the aisle, as you can see from the S&P/ASX 200 Industrials Index (ASX: XNJ)'s loss of 0.35%.

Healthcare stocks didn't exactly live up to their name today either. The S&P/ASX 200 Healthcare Index (ASX: XHJ) ended up retreating by 0.33%.

Communications shares had a day to forget too, with the S&P/ASX 200 Communication Services Index (ASX: XTJ) copping a drop of 0.3%.

Tech stocks were right on that tail. The S&P/ASX 200 Information Technology Index (ASX: XIJ) was walked back by another 0.36% this Tuesday.

Lucky last for the losers were ASX utilities shares, evident from the S&P/ASX 200 Utilities Index (ASX: XUJ)'s 0.01% slip.

Turning now to the winners, these were spearheaded by energy stocks. The S&P/ASX 200 Energy Index (ASX: XEJ) got all the love today, shooting up 2%.

Gold shares were the other lucky corner of the market, with the All Ordinaries Gold Index (ASX: XGD) enjoying a lift of 0.28%.

Today's index winner was lithium stock Liontown Resources Ltd (ASX: LTR). After being placed in a trading halt for most of the day, Liontown shares rocketed 7.3% to close at 95.5 cents each.

This surge higher comes after the company revealed it had secured a US$250 million investment for its Kathleen Valley Lithium Project.
