Sector Analysis


Recommended Posts

Hi all, 

Relatively new around here and I wanted to get some input from members on how people go about performing sector analysis on markets (UK based stocks). From what I can see this is not really possible using the tools that are available on IG (pls correct me if I'm wrong) and maybe better suited on some of the other platforms / websites / tools out there. 

I'm looking to use a top down approach to stock selection based on a performing sector rather than pure stock picking based on individual stock setup. Ideally this would mean assessing the higher performing sectors, relative to the main index for a given market, then selecting appropriate stocks in that sector. For example, Tradingview has a page which shows the sector information, but there isn’t a way (that I know) to see this information vs FTSE100/200/350 etc.

https://uk.tradingview.com/markets/stocks-united-kingdom/sectorandindustry-sector/

Any help or push in the right direction would be appreciated.

Thanks.

    • This is not an acceptable explanation for me unfortunately, I am fully aware of the need to move spreads and I had accounted for that. Especially at the open of a market, but your spread was totally unreasonable the spread on DEC contracts is already at 130pip standard, to increase it to 400pips and hold it there even after 5 mins of trading. As my execution was a 09:06 the main market volatility had already been accounted for.   So disappointing after 6years being a customer and on a profitable trade as well: 
    • Dear @MB1470, Thank you for your post. Please note that dealing spreads on shares are subject to variation, especially in volatile market conditions or other unusual circumstances.  Market spreads can widen significantly, particularly at the beginning and end of the trading day, and minimum spreads may exist. Thanks, KoketsoIG
    • This morning at the market open on NOVO DEC contracts. On Spread Bet.    the spread moved from 138pips to close to 400 pips? How can this be reasonable the candle is only displayed on a 15-2min time period not on smaller periods. At market open 09:00 ????? How is this even remotely reasonable?
