The S&P/ASX 200 Index (ASX: XJO) slipped ever so slightly on Thursday after major commodity prices tumbled overnight. The index was 0.01% lower at 6,974.90 points as of the market’s close.

The slip came despite a decent performance by tech shares. S&P/ASX 200 Information Technology Index (ASX: XIJ) rose 1.9% today on the back of lower US bond yields. US 10-year yields fell to around 2.7% while US 2-year yields to near 3.07%.

On the other hand, the S&P/ASX 200 Energy Index (ASX: XEJ) plummeted 2.2% in today’s session, likely due to lower oil prices.

Brent crude oil slumped 3.7% to US$96.78 a barrel overnight while the US Nymex crude price slipped 4% to US$90.66 a barrel.

The S&P/ASX 200 Materials Index (ASX: XMJ) was the market’s next worse performer, plunging 1% on Thursday after iron ore futures fell 3.8% to US$110.38 a tonne.

At the end of today’s session, seven of the ASX 200’s 11 sectors were trading higher.
