The S&P/ASX 200 Index (ASX: XJO) rebounded slightly this week after two consecutive weeks of poor performance. The benchmark index ended the session 0.74% higher at 6,576.40 points.

Nine of the index’s 11 sectors closed higher, led by the S&P/ASX 200 Information Technology Index (ASX: XIJ)’s 6% gain. It was likely driven upwards following decent gains on Wall Street overnight.

Meanwhile, the S&P/ASX 200 Energy Index (ASX: XEJ) was the market’s worst performer, falling 1.5%. Coal shares were the sector’s biggest weight despite the price of coal lifting overnight. Though, lower oil prices likely also weighed on the index.
