PRT - Can the Sectors and Industry Groupings be shown on the charts for the S&P500


Recommended Posts

I am speaking from the point of view of a chartist here.

 

As any self directed swing trader or longer term investor in stocks will know the sector and industry in which a stock is part of has a big influence on the performance of that stock. It would be of great assistance to the chartist to see the sector and industry group on the chart. Most good charting packages "shadow in" the details on the chart itself. It save having to leave the chart and visit a website like this one below:

I would request that the same be applied to charts of LSE listed stocks for the sectors and sub sectors or at least for the FTSE350 

 

Thank you in anticipation of your considerations.

Hey ,

 

Would you be able to provide a little more clarity on this post. I'd be glad to pass this on to our development team, but would like to get a better understanding of exactly what you were looking for.

 

Many thanks,

Tim

Hi Tim,

 

I have provided a link to an image of a chart of Connoco Philips. You will see that the chart provider not only shadows in the name of the stock but also the sector and industry group i.e. Energy and Integrated oil and gas.

I provided a link above to the S&P500 sectors and industry groups maintained by Stockcharts.com. If you scroll down to the heading Energy and then click on the industry group you will see Connoco Philips along with all the other companies in this group.

 

In regard to the FTSE350 the LSE categorises the constituents into industry sectors and subsectors with can be found here  http://www.londonstockexchange.com/exchange/prices-and-markets/stocks/indices/constituents-indices.html?index=NMX&industrySector=&page=1

 

I hope that has clarified my suggestion :-)

Hi ,

 

Thanks for the clarification, much appreciated!

 

I'll pass this feedback on to our charts team for their consideration, as I can see how this may be a useful tool. I know the road map for chart development is quite full, but always worth bringing new ideas to the teams attention!

 

Cheers,

Tim

Thanks Tim, for momentum traders and those interested in capital growth in the medium to longer term it is extremely important to be in the strongest stocks in the strongest industry groups receiving the flow of big money.  All the greats including, Wycoff,  Livermore, Darvas, O'Neill and Weinstein to name a but a few advocated this.

    • and so suddenly, within the last few days; - Vit D finally gets govt recommended. - Invermectin finally gets approval. - HCQ now suggested as a treatment instead of being banned. - WHO finally revises PCR test to reduce huge ratio of false positives.   With all these much cheaper treatments now available it's lucky for big Pharma then that all their vaccines have already been bought up for the next few years. 🙄   .  
    • Interesting snip from Parliament TV.  NHS staff are now full on the Lateral Flow Test twice a week but still waiting for public LFT mass testing roll out. Asymptomatics testing -ve on LFT will not need a PCR and therefore an end to the PCR false positive pandemic. Govt claim to have several hundred million LFT kits, not sure why the holdup. First 15 min discusses LFT efficacy. https://parliamentlive.tv/event/index/c435f728-b042-4293-a877-42812aa90dee
    • Hi there, bit of a newbie question here but i'm holding shares in Tiziana Life Sciences but can see two listings. The UK shares I have now look to be on a different code to the US shares TILS Vs TLSA. I can see that the US stock went up a huge amount yesterday 20th Jan but can not see this reflected on the UK version of this stock. I thought that dual listed stock should be the same price albeit the only difference being the exchange rate conversion? Wondering if i need to get out of the UK stock and move over to the US to take advantage of the upward trend? Just can't get my head around what is going on here and why the UK version didn't open up showing the gains that were made on the US version of this stock.  Really appreciate any insight here that anyone can provide.  Thanks IG community.
