1) As It Happened: 🐤 Early-Bird Breakout 🎆 in LUV on 21st Nov 2012
Various academic studies have demonstrated that sectors form an increasingly important component of security returns . Within the transportation super-sector, the airline sector represent an important constituent alongside the courier, marine, road and rail sectors . As a logical result, returns across the various stocks within the airline sector are highly correlated and exhibit lead-lag relationships which can be exploited for substantial profit.
One such instance occurred during late November to early December 2012. Starting from 21st Nov 2012, Southwest Airlines (LUV) exhibited several breakouts from its two-month trading range while other stocks in the same sector remained trapped within narrow trading ranges (see Fig.1). These are referred to as "Early Bird Breakouts" in our proprietary AssetCharts.com Sector Rotation Methodology.
