Today, the S&P/ASX 200 Index (ASX: XJO) broke a three-day losing streak following renewed optimism in markets on the back of the Federal Reserve’s rate decision last night. At the end of the session, the benchmark index finished 0.82% higher at 7,364.7 points.

In a refreshing change of scenery, there was almost not a single sector in the red across Aussie markets on Thursday. Unfortunately, the financial sector skimmed below breakeven after disappointing news was delivered by Australia and New Zealand Banking Group Ltd (ASX: ANZ) and National Australia Bank Ltd (ASX: NAB).

On the flip side, tech and energy shares shined the brightest today amid a slightly rosier outlook.

However, the question is: which shares delivered the biggest returns to investors on the ASX today? Here are the top ten stocks that came through for investors:
