New Feature: GICS Sub-industries Bell Curve

Members on the site now have access to the new GICS Sub-industries Bell Curve which is automatically updated daily and is interactive. So you can click into each Sub Industry page and see the individual stocks ordered by their Stage Analysis Technical Attributes (SATA) scores and Mansfield RS (Relative Strength) scores. The data only covers the S&P Composite 1500 currently, so there's a few groups with only a few stocks. But these will broaden out once the full US market data is added later this month.

Hence with this new data for the 163 Sub-industries update on the site daily, and more to be added with the same features for Sectors (11), Groups (25) and Industries (74) in the coming month. The IBD Industry Groups Bullish Percent post will be retired, and we will instead be using the GICS Bell Curves from the website.
