The S&P/ASX 200 Index (ASX: XJO) enjoyed a strong day of trading this Tuesday, in what was a welcome comeback for the Australian markets after yesterday's rough start to the week.

By the closing bell, the ASX 200 had galloped a confident 0.86% higher, leaving the index at 7,829.7 points.

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

The Dow Jones Industrial Average Index (DJX: DJI) kicked off the American trading week on a sour note, slipping 0.079%.

But things were brighter over on the tech-heavy Nasdaq Composite Index (NASDAQ: .IXIC), which managed a gain of 0.28%.

But let's now return to our local markets and check out what was going on with the different ASX sectors this session.

Winners and losers

It was all smiles today amongst the ASX sectors, with not one recording a loss.

The worst-performing corner of the market, though, was energy shares. The S&P/ASX 200 Energy Index (ASX: XEJ) had a comparatively tame day, inching up 0.15%.

Gold shares were also relatively subdued. The All Ordinaries Gold Index (ASX: XGD) lifted 0.16% by the closing bell.

Things were brighter with consumer staples stocks though. The S&P/ASX 200 Consumer Staples Index (ASX: XSJ) saw its value rise 0.33%.

Real estate investment trusts (REITs) did better again, as you'll see from the S&P/ASX 200 A-REIT Index (ASX: XPJ)'s 0.56% bounce.

Following REITs, we had utilities shares. The S&P/ASX 200 Utilities Index (ASX: XUJ) lifted 0.57% this Tuesday.

ASX mining stocks had a cracker today, evidenced by the S&P/ASX 200 Materials Index (ASX: XMJ)'s 0.6% leap higher.

Industrial shares were another bright spot. The S&P/ASX 200 Industrials Index (ASX: XNJ) banked a 0.67% gain this session.

Healthcare stocks were on fire too, with the S&P/ASX 200 Healthcare Index (ASX: XHJ) shooting up 0.68%.

Then we have tech shares. The S&P/ASX 200 Information Technology Index (ASX: XIJ) vaulted up 0.8%.

Consumer discretionary stocks were also making their investors very happy, illustrated by the S&P/ASX 200 Consumer Discretionary Index (ASX: XDJ) soaring 0.81%.

Financial shares were making hay today as well. The S&P/ASX 200 Financials Index (ASX: XFJ) recorded a 1.35% surge.

Finally, communications stocks were our best sector of the day, with the S&P/ASX 200 Communication Services Index (ASX: XTJ) rocketing 1.39%.
