What are the different Sectors of the Stock Market ?

There is no consensus on what constitutes a Market Sector but we are listing the major sectors and sub-sectors of the Stock Market. Market sectors are especially important to investors trying to make sure your portfolio is well diversified. By purchasing stocks from differing sectors you help isolate your portfolio from large losses should a particular sector experience a “bubble” ( a phenomenon that occurs when a particular sector is extremely overbought, usually due to speculators). It is advisable for investors to buy stocks in every major sector of the market if you can, while nothing will help with a general market downturn it can help stabilize your portfolio during turbulent market sector volatility..
