The S&P/ASX 200 Index (ASX: XJO) kicked off the week strong, leaping 0.82% on Monday to close at 7,388.2 points.

That was despite a lacklustre performance from mining shares. The S&P/ASX 200 Materials Index (ASX: XMJ) lifted just 0.2% today as lithium stocks and iron ore giants weighed on the sector.

The S&P/ASX 200 Information Technology Index (ASX: XIJ), on the other hand, led the market’s gains, lifting 1.8%.

It was also a good day to be invested in ASX 200 bank shares. Shares in the big four banks rose between 0.7% and 1.6% on Monday after many of their New York-listed peers leapt on quarterly earnings on Friday.

Finally, the S&P/ASX 200 Energy Index (ASX: XEJ) rose 1.5% on Monday following a strong Friday session for oil prices.

So, with all that in mind, let’s take a look at the 10 shares taking out today’s top spots on the ASX 200.
