Today brought more gains for the S&P/ASX 200 Index (ASX: XJO), with energy shares taking the lead. The index was 0.69% higher at 6,993 points as of Monday’s close.

It marks a fifth consecutive session in which the benchmark index closed in the green. Though, it hasn’t clambered back its June losses yet.

The S&P/ASX 200 Energy Index (ASX: XEJ) led on Monday, gaining 1.9% on the back of higher oil prices.

The price of Brent crude oil lifted 2.7% on Friday to trade at US$110.01 a barrel. Meanwhile, the US Nymex crude oil price gained 2.3% to reach US$96.42 a barrel.

It was also a good day for the S&P/ASX 200 Health Care Index (ASX: XHJ) and the S&P/ASX 200 Materials Index (ASX: XMJ). The latter’s lift likely had something to do with higher base metals and iron ore prices.

The price of nickel lifted 7.8% on Friday while iron ore futures rose 7.4% to trade at US$115.48 a tonne.

It wasn’t all glory, however. The S&P/ASX 200 Information Technology Index (ASX: XIJ) slumped 0.4% on the back of the Megaport Ltd (ASX: MP1) share price’s 13% tumble.

At the end of Monday’s session, eight of the ASX 200’s 11 sectors were in the green. But which shares topped the lot? Let’s take a look.
