How to View the Chart of a Stock's Sector and Industry

Each company (and its related stock) is assigned both a Sector (a broad area of related commerce) and Industry (a smaller group of competing companies) in TC2000. The Sector and Industry Index charts of any symbol can be automatically displayed.

  • The Sector Index is an aggregate price action for all the stocks of companies making up the broad area of commerce. (SX ticker symbols)
  • The Industry Index is an aggregate price action for the smaller group of stocks of companies that are involved in similar business. (IX ticker symbols)
