This is a friendly reminder about the most appropriate bookmark in your browser for Slope: specifically, it should be which will take you to a customized home page based on your membership level. I just wanted to be sure folks weren’t bookmarking, for example, the blog page, because there’s a lot more to Slope these days, and I’m trying to keep the custom home pages up-to-date with the most relevant features.

Improvements Recap

So much has been happening on Slope lately, it’s easy to lose track. I’ve been rearranging and polishing the menus and navigation of the site to try to make things more “exposed” and obvious, but I wanted to highlight three particular items, each of which is hyperlinked to its page:

  • Sector Performance – This page offers about a dozen different views into relative sector performance, including real-time data to show what’s happening on the current trading day;
  • Big Movers – This shows the present day’s big “up” and “down” equities;
  • SlopeRules – Over the past couple of weeks, there have been about a dozen improvements, the most important of which is illustrated with¬†this video¬†(and, within the next 24 hours, we’ll be rolling out MACD rules)

This is an iterative process. I create stuff. You try it out. You write to me and tell me what you’d like improved. Then I go back to work. This is how we make things better, and have done so for 14 years strong now.

What I’m really enjoying about SlopeRules is that every time I use it, I think of at least one important new feature to add. See, with SlopeCharts, for me, it’s basically perfect. I use it dozens of hours every week, and – – like I say – – it’s absolutely perfect. There’s nothing else I want it to do.

SlopeRules, on the other hand, is a newborn baby, and there’s all kinds of things I want to teach it.

I decided to have a little fun and try to tease out what SlopeRules set seemed to work well with my ETF list. So I right-clicked on my ETF watchlist (which has 60 symbols) and went to Apply SlopeRules, one by one:
