Updated SP500 groups and sectors

December 2018

The 2018 updated SP500 Group and Sector structure for WinWay TradingExpert is now available

This completely updated structure is current through the end of December 2018. Many sectors and groups have been renamed by S&P and the new structure reflects these changes. The old SP500 structure in your platform will be replaced if you choose to install the update. A complete list of the S&P 500 component stocks is available in Wikipedia
