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).
