    Aug 29, 2012 10:22 PM

    Contextuall analyzed momentum trends for more than 4200 companies, and filtered these data points to arrive at an overall industry view of moving average trends. The following list of industries are exhibiting high momentum, based on the 200-day simple moving average (SMA200)).

    In general, a stock is exhibiting upward momentum if it's trading above the SMA200. To the contrary, downward momentum occurs if the price is trading below the SMA200.

    We've created this list of upper and lower extremes, based on long-term momentum trends of more than 220 industries.
