Market Close 3 Aug 22: ASX retreats, ending 6 day winning streak.

The Australian sharemarket snapped six-straight days of gains and posted its worst daily decline in around two weeks, after the ASX 200 shed 22.2pts or 0.32%, to 6975.9. The index managed to recoup some losses after the mining sector clawed back a 1.5 per cent decline and finished 0.35 per cent higher.

Elsewhere in the market, Tech shares climbed 2.2 per cent - their best day in around two weeks - and the Financials sector snapped six-straight days of gains, with the Big 4 banks all down.
