It may seem silly to read, but perhaps the thing I am most grateful for in 2017 (since we’re almost to Thanksgiving right now) is SlopeCharts.

Especially the five days per year when the market drops.

No, this isn’t a plea for the market to stop going up. It’s more useful than that.

One of you helpfully suggested that, with the growing SlopeCharts list of technical indicators, some instructional information might be helpful. OK, done! Now there is a Help button on every tab related to studies, and clicking it will bring up a new page describing the study and how it is used.
