Preloaded Watch Lists in SlopeCharts

By -

OK, it’s only the third day of the year, and we’ve already introduced TWO major new features (and two minor ones) to SlopeCharts! Not bad for a free product, is it? (And, although I can’t believe it, we’ve finished another major feature, which I’ll announce tomorrow).

The latest is something I’ve been wanting to do a while: Preloaded Watchlists. These are basically ready-to-use lists of common groupings (like the components of the S&P 100, the Dow Industrials, and so forth) which you can fetch with a mouse click. I’m planning to add plenty more lists, too, in order to save you – – yes, you – – time.

To use it, just click the Watch Lists link and choose Preloaded Watchlists:
