Sector Momentum and Why It Matters Now

by | Feb 28, 2022

The market bounced off lows since Russia invaded Ukraine, and it brought a couple of low-priced runners.

Check out this chart of Indonesia Energy Corporation Limited (AMEX: INDO) as an example…

There’s a phenomenon that happens in the market called ‘sector momentum,’ and it helps day traders gain an edge.

I haven’t seen much activity in the markets over the past few weeks. But it looks like volatility is back!

What Is Sector Momentum?

Sometimes several stocks in the same sector will spike over a few days.

It can occur in two different ways… 

  • A big spiker sends traders scrambling to find the closest resembling stock before it makes a similar move. That means stocks in the same sector with similar prices and floats.
  • A global catalyst influences a certain sector, causing prices to react in a big way.

I’m sure you heard that last Thursday, Russia officially invaded Ukraine. The conflict predicts a hike in oil prices.

Gas prices going up means that stocks will rise — specifically, energy stocks.

These Energy Stocks Are Spiking

Once I’ve identified a hot sector, I start looking for any other stocks that might experience bullish price behavior.

The most recent energy runners are as follows… 

  • Indonesia Energy Corporation Limited (AMEX: INDO)
  • Imperial Petroleum Inc. (NASDAQ: IMPP)
  • Enservco Corporation (AMEX: ENSV)

I’ll definitely keep these tickers on my watchlist going forward. You should too. Start following volatility when you find it in the market.

Going forward, keep an eye out for any energy stocks that start moving.

It’s not enough to play the hottest stock of the day. To find profits I’ve gotta think one step ahead.
