Remember the “L”

By -

I wanted to remind you SlopeCharts users of an important feature that I think is easily overlooked. First, I wanted to share a clever tweet from that Knight boy, which I thought was worth highlighting.

Anyway, the feature doesn’t even have a name – let’s call it the “live line” – and it is invoked with Ctrl-L. What it does is slaps a horizontal line on the most recent price and puts it in green if it’s up and red if it’s down.

This is a very simple feature, but frankly I find it invaluable. It’s all about one word: context. It is extremely helpful for me to see in an instant where the price is relative to the chart as a whole. I heartily endorse this feature.
