The S&P/ASX 200 Index (ASX: XJO) started the week out on the wrong foot, falling 0.22% to close at 7,263.3 points.

It followed a similar slump on Wall Street on Friday. Major New York-based indices slipped between 0.1% and 0.3% amid news negations on boosting or removing the United States’ debt ceiling stalled, as Reuters reports.

The S&P/ASX 200 Real Estate Index (ASX: XRE) and the S&P/ASX 200 Financials Index (ASX: XFJ) were among today’s worst-performing sectors, falling 0.7% and 0.6% respectively.

But not all was bad on the bourse. The S&P/ASX 200 Energy Index (ASX: XEJ) gained 1% while the S&P/ASX Information Technology Index (ASX: XIJ) jumped 1.5%.

So, with all that in mind, let’s take a look at the top-performing ASX 200 shares today.
