Slope initially began as a blog, so this is where most of the website’s content resides. Here we have tens of thousands of posts dating back over a decade. These are listed in reverse chronological order. Click on any category icon below to see posts tagged with that particular subject, or click on a word in the category cloud on the right side of the screen for more specific choices.
As most of you know, my guys and I pulled an all-nighter so that, at long, long last, we changed our host provider (that is, the servers which provide Slope and all its services). This was actually our third attempt over the past month, and we finally succeeded. Slope is a very, very, VERY complicated site (even to very experienced people), so it truly was like changing jet engines on an airborne flight.
At 4 this morning, when we threw the switch, it seemed things went pretty well. In fact, I thought we were just about done. On a scale of 1 to 10, however, we were actually at about a “2”. Just about everything was broken. But we improved steadily throughout the day. I’d say we’re at about an “9” right now. The broken stuff that remains is pretty much just internal administrative pages and SocialTrade stacks..
A few days of weakness, and the world was ready to declare the 40-year bull market in bonds to be over. Not so fast! My view is that this touch of weakness simply sealed up a price gap, and now we’re starting to get some strength again. The big day is exactly two weeks from today – July 31, the last day of this month, when the Fed does their thing.
I am delighted earnings season is upon us, because it’ll help some reality actually show through the cracks of this totally fake, artificial, Fed-driven lie that we’ve been living through for the past decade. People can just start to see how bad things really are, at least until that self-serving prick Jerome Powell leaps back again to protect his centimillion-dollar fortune. The TRANSPORTS are a nice example of this. Yesterday’s breakout was a total fakeout. We’re all doomed. It’s just that no one realizes it yet.
I am borderline hallucinating at this point, so trust me when I say I’ll do chart-ish posts later today. We’re continuing to throat-slash problems left and right, so I’m pleased with our progress. Onward!
Now that we’ve upgraded our servers, some folks are having trouble logging in, since their browsers are confused (basically straddling the old servers and the new servers). The solution to this is easy: delete your browser cookies.If you don’t know how, just go to Google and type “how to delete cookies in ” followed by whatever browser you use. Here’s what it looks like in Chrome, for example
Greetings from the wee hours of the morning, where my three dogs are looking at me bug-eyed with puzzlement. We pulled another all-nighter and moved the entirety of Slope to a new server farm. We’re still working out a few kinks, but on the whole, so far, so good. Email me any problems you see.
