I am starting to put together a few new educational videos on the site. Here’s the first one.
Slope of Hope Blog Posts
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.
FUN FACT: This is Slope’s 24,000th post! And it’s a good one:
Let’s say you went up to a grown person and told them that, if they would try to yodel for you for 15 seconds, you would give them twenty dollars. They might hesitate at first, but most people would, within a pretty short amount of time, figure that was a fair trade and try to warble out a few yodel-a-ee-hoos for you.
You say “thanks” and walk away without paying them. They would probably leer at you and mutter an obscenity under their breath.
The next day, you find the same fellow and make him the same offer. I suspect at that point, instead of accepting your offer, he would make a very specific anatomical suggestion which not only you’re not interested in performing, but is itself impossible to perform. Needless to say, no yodeling would be forthcoming.(more…)
I’ve been reading my Modern Monetary Policy book all day long, but I took a “break” if you want to call is that, here on this Saturday night, to whip up this updated analog for you. Fascinating stuff. This puts us in the summer of 2008 on the Dow Jones Composite. Food for thought:
Even though it’s an exclusive feature for Diamond members, the grid feature in SlopeCharts is something I wanted to mention again for a couple of reasons. First, we’ve enhanced the grid feature so that it handles drawn objects intelligently (we had suppressed them before). Second, there are some pretty cool analogs going on I wanted to share below.
First, here is the Dow Jones Composite:(more…)
What a day! As I’ve mentioned from time to time, my biggest regret lately has been not sticking with some of the most powerful analogs that I’ve been sharing on Slope for months. Below, for instance, is Axle Manufacturing. My view is that what has happened so far (green) is just the start of a much bigger destiny (yellow).(more…)
How many times have I mentioned the AXL analog? A dozen? Two dozen? Anyway, this is finally entering slaughter-ville. It also gave me the opportunity for one of the most clever post titles of all time.(more…)
OK, I am truly excited to be writing this post. Not only because the charts are electrifying, but also because it gives me a chance to show off precisely why I created Grid Charts in SlopeCharts.
I actually considered making this a free post, but ya know, I’ve had it up to the proverbial “here” with freeloaders. I mean, if a few dollars a month is seriously an issue, I’m not sure why anyone would pretend to be a serious trader. Indeed, I’m planning to take away DOZENS of features from the non-premium members and keep them strictly within the purview of this walled garden. Screw those guys.(more…)
