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.

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

Thanks.

    • Hello, Is any interest paid on "available" cash (not "margin") in a spread betting account? For example, if I held £10k in an account and had no open positions. The reason for asking is that I understand that proceeds from short sales in a CFD will receive interest (benchmark-2.5%), so was wondering if that applied to all cash, and couldn't find an answer on the web site.   Thanks.
    • Hi @Mark12 If you are trading shares, you will have the option to place a limit order to sell your existing position. When the market opens, please check if your order level is close to where the market is trading. All the best, OfentseIG
    • We have to wait until Friday to find out if the UK economy skirted a recession.   Richard Snow, foreign exchange analyst at Daily FX, tells IGTV’s Jeremy Naylor that after the third quarter contraction of 0.3%, there is a risk around the incoming data for the fourth quarter. Here he discusses GBP/USD as a trade to go short. But what if GDP comes in slightly higher? Richard says that is likely to be largely academic and that he believes the short trade will prevail.
