  • Long-Term Momentum Trends: 200-Day Moving Average Analysis (By Industry) 0 comments
    Aug 8, 2012 6:28 PM

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

    There are two ways to categorize industries: long-term upward momentum (trades above the SMA200) and long-term downward momentum (trades below the SMA200).

    We've sorted the long-term momentum rankings of more than 220 industries, and compiled this list of the upper and lower extremes.

    To access a list of stocks included in the industry calculation, click on any of the links. (Premium Members: Got a comment? Let us know in the comment section on the right of this page)
