The stock market sectors which are breaking out in 2017

Stock-Markets / Stock Market 2017 May 17, 2017 - 09:23 AM GMT

Stock-Markets Over recent times it has been reported that the stock market is once again proving to be quite volatile.

It's for this reason why sources such as the JCRA group website are in immense demand; volatility prompts a lot of question marks that the average Joe just doesn't have the experience to answer.


As well as this volatility, a lot of experts have noticed that there are certain sectors within the market which are well and truly prevailing. While others might be experiencing something of a turbulent time, there are some sectors which don't seem to be following such a path.

Let's now take a look at these sectors and show how they are breaking out through the year.

Financial sector


Out of all of the sectors we'll look at there's no doubt that the finance one is breaking out the most. If we were to drill down into specifics, banking and insurance stocks are performing particularly well and you may have noticed that the rates in these respective sectors are starting to soar.

From an investor’s point of view, there's an interesting point to note here. While the performance of some markets might be because of President Trump, it's worth mentioning that the signs for the financials market have been there for several years. As such, this appears to have been predicted by a lot of industry experts, and we're now starting to see the rewards.

Industrial sector

There's a slightly different outlook with the industrial sector. It's in this case where the signs haven't necessarily been prevalent for a number of years; instead, the emergence of President Trump has catapulted this market into the forefront of investors’ minds.

Of course, when one starts to consider the policies that Trump has been promoting, the emergence of this market should not come as a surprise. Trump has highlighted how he wants to invest in infrastructure and naturally, this is going to have a positive effect on industrials.

Sure, this market has been performing at a good level for some time, but it has certainly broken out more following Trump's rise to power.

Base metals

Another industry which is performing well comes in the form of base metals. While there are some metals which are performing better than others, all in all the whole of this market is breaking out and investors are confident that this might be for the long-term.

For the past five years it would be fair to say that base metals have struggled somewhat, but now things are starting to change. For example, aluminium, lead and nickel are all expected to perform for the medium-term, while zinc may even be able to perform for the long-term.

It means that rather than looking at the downward spiral that investors have been used to over the years, a resurgence is on the cards although they may have to pick their metals strategically to ensure that such a break out is going to occur for the foreseeable future.
