My life revolves about SlopeCharts (both as a user and as a developer), and I don’t think I’ve ever been so excited to announce something new in this product. I call it SWELL (Slopecharts Worldwide Economic Library Lists), and it provides access to an ungodly amount of economic data (literally hundreds of thousands of items) that in some cases goes back hundreds of years. Simply stated, the size of the SlopeCharts database just went up about a hundred-fold.
As I’ve hinted, there is a mountain of fantastically-interesting data coming for SlopeCharts. Hopefully later on Sunday I’ll be able to do a big post about it, but in the meantime, here’s a sneak peek at some of the interesting information I’ve gathered for you.
It’s been relatively quiet in SlopeCharts-land lately, but that’s because the elves and I are hard at work on the latest new data release: the entire FRED database.
This is a mountain of data, dwarfing anything I’ve ever worked with before. We are going to have literally hundreds of thousands of new charts that open up an entirely new dimension to the product. If you haven’t tried SlopeCharts yet, please do so (it’s free……) and stay tuned for the launch!
