For months now (and many, many dollars……..) I have been hard at work on the new Slope of Hope. I have given PLUS members a sneak peek, but I wanted to share with you its introductory video that I finished just moments ago. This video doesn’t apply to the current site, obviously, but I’m looking forward to rolling out the glorious new Slope website.

Stan and I were saying in the monthly free public Chart Chat on Sunday that the last day of the cycle high window was today and we were expecting to see a rally high made by the end of the day.

At first glance, it would seem the swift swoon on the NASDAQ was kind of a big deal, since it’s been such an unstoppable monster lately.
Okay, this is about the most random post ever, but moments ago I stumbled across an image floating around my hard drive I had forgotten about: the server map to Prophet. This used to be hush-hush, super-secret stuff, but now I can share it with everyone, since these servers were scrapped ages ago.
