Good morning, everyone, and welcome to a new trading week.

Late last year, we decided to improve and upgrade the software foundation beneath Slope. I naively assumed the project would be relatively quick and painless, but it was anything but that. It took longer, cost far more, and had more stumbles than I dared imagine. The good news, however, is that over the weekend we rolled everything live.

Naturally, not everything worked at first, but I wanted to point out some specific problems that we addressed over the weekend:

  • Comments in the Slope App – – didn’t work at first, but now are sailing smoothly. Incidentally, if you haven’t downloaded the free app yet, please check the Slope Mobile page out.
  • Badges in Comments – – they had all disappeared! But they’re back now, good as new.
  • How to Use Slope Videos – – this page was being very fussy, so we rebuilt it. For those of you who haven’t watched the quick, important videos on that page, please give it a look. We’ve also rebuilt the Eight Essential Chart Patterns page.

The irony of all this expense and work is that, ideally, none of you would have noticed anything different about the site. So what was all the fuss about, then? It just gives us something more solid so we can continue building and improving the site. We’ll be keeping a close eye on things today and we continue to run it through the paces!
