Sectors

SlopeCharts has access to information about nearly 500 different industry sectors, and you can put this information to work to filter your watch lists based on choosing any sectors you want. For example, you might want to look at all the stocks in the S&P 500 related to retail. This feature is exclusively for PLUS members.

To use the feature, click the Watch Lists header and choose Filter by Sector:

0715-menu

You can scroll through the sectors (in alphabetical order) or search based on any text. For instance, by typing in “retail”, you can see any of the sectors with the word “retail” anywhere. You can check any of these, or to save time, you can click the Select All Shown button to checkmark every single sector displayed. When you are done with your choices, click the Apply button.

When you are doing any filtering, the menu changes to indicate that filters are on (otherwise, all symbols are displayed in the watch lists):

0715-menuchosen

All of your watch lists will benefit from the filtering. For example, if only “retail” sectors are chosen for the S&P 500 watch list, the list shrinks from 500 down to 16.
