I'd like to be able to follow ... and possibly trade... ETF's as I also follow Industry Groups as Investors Business Daily, Value Line and others review and rate industry groups on a weekly basis. I have not seen any classification of ETFs by industry.

VectorVest says they "track 831 ETFs and classifies them into 35 logical industry groups." I do not subscribe to VectorVest.

Does anyone have or know of a classification of ETFs by Industry Group that I might be able to get? I understand that it might not be a perfect classification.

Thank you,

That is a very good reference.... thanks...

Someone here reco'ed

I had a problem with following or better yet actually USING IBD's industrys ratings.

They build an "index" so to speak of well known stocks in an industry and provide
the chart of this mini index.

This is going to be helpful to me..... thanks to whoever.....

For example Johnpaul mentioned one or two airline stocks a while back.
Tickerspy shows the oversold group in its entirety bouncing. Thats what Im
looking for.... There may not be an etf for airlines but take your pick of the leaders...
Groups like solar, chineese ag are the most heavily foillowed on

My recent use of this has been the FWLT's JEC's bouncing. Heavy infrastructure.
I bought FWLT for a bounce

Last couple days PBR and UCO for a bouce of longer .....we''ll see...
Aint interested in matching wits/trading numbers......
Just maybe sharing info for a more slow moving type of trader/investor
Giving and getting a heads up so to speak when a group of stocks is turning around.

Pretty much the single filter I use is for etfs and stocks is below

My chart setting Is LINE. I dont care about intraday and do not have stops in. Theres good
and bad with that but I do it the same all the time and get both.

Fetcher[ chart-display is weekly
cema(weekly day change,3) BELOW 100 /*required to get daily display of price*/
/*cema(weekly day change,3) crossed above 0*/

weekly day change above weekly day change 1 week ago
weekly day change 1 week ago above weekly day change 2 weeks ago
williams %r(12) < -50
count(williams %r(12) < -85,5) > 0

do not draw weekly day change

close > 10
avg vol(30) > 2000000
count(weekly day change > 7,99) > 10 /*minimum ammount of zip*/

sort column 5 descending
add column industry
draw ma(6)

Good luck

Thanks John......

That weekly day range thing was a programming error that I like.....
I couldnt explain how it works and dont care to know !

I certainly take note of your observations airlines, coal etc.. in your the BIG thread
and hope you and others continue....

I would hope it is understood there are no "reputations" at stake here.
An observation or, heads up that a group of stocks becomes oversold and
may be moving up is just that. An observation.....

Knowing what will happen in the future is not a requirement.
Though, I believe it is on Yahoo boards....
