I guess the subject line speaks for itself……..not that there’s any bears LEFT out there, but still:
Slope, as you might suppose, is my favorite blog on the web. My second favorite, however, is ZeroHedge, and I’ve been an avid and daily reader for its entire existence.

If I were to make a list of the things I want to write about, at the BOTTOM would be this stupid market, and at the TOP would be SlopeCharts. So – – get used to it – – you’re going to be hearing about my new favorite product a lot. At least until common sense returns.
Instead of doing a post of charts that would literally be about five feet tall, I’m going to provide you with the clean, simple URLs that will provide you ten really fascinating charts from the SWELL system. Just click any of these to see it in all its SlopeChartian glory. Enjoy!
Just for fun, I decided to use the SWELL database in SlopeCharts to see what charts came up with a “delinquencies” search (Yeah, OK, so maybe your definition of “fun” is different than mine).
I decided to click on a few of these. The results suggest that maybe things aren’t so super-peachy as everyone in the media is insisting. Just sayin’. (more…)
