SP500 sectors codes (letters)

Hi All,

I know it is Futures forum but have a question for someone who trades stocks on US market - I cannot find codes for Sectors anywhere - checked GICS site and only found some numbers.
On our market (ASX) the sectors e.g Energy has a code XEJ - so I can quickly get a chart of the sector and then, if looks interesting, check some of the sector stocks.
So far I could not find those codes for US market (SP500 stocks).

Anyone knows?

Many thanks in advance.
Cheers,
romus

US Sectors

@luigizerozero,

Very good - but these are just ETF's - does it mean that US sectors do not have the code?
ASX sectors reflect the prices in the sector, not the performance of the specific (related) fund.

Anyway, thank you as this is close enough to what I would like to use it for.

Cheers,
romus

The sector / industry codes depend on your data provider.

For SC here's the S&P Indices symbol list:
Sierra Chart Real-time and Historical Exchange Data Feed Symbols - Sierra Chart

For NT with DTN/Kinetick, you can use https://kinetick.com/Help#!Help_SymbolSearch to get the symbols
(narrow the search with the click-down boxes).

If you are not familiar with the sectors and industries structure of the S&P Indices,
https://eresearch.fidelity.com/eresearch/markets_sectors/sectors/sectors_in_market.jhtml
might be helpful. It shows the hierarchy of the S&P, its sectors, the constituent industries, and
their respective weightings.

@choke35,

Many thanks.
I can see it is not as straightforward as on our market.
The sector components (and sector names) I was able to get from Barchart.com - getting the codes for the sector is quite a secret! :-)

Both sources very useful - thank you again,
romus.
