No Time Like the Present

One of the countless benefits of paid membership is access to Time Perspective Charts, and we’ve just added a new feature that one of you suggested: the ability to Show Present Day on the chart.

If this is checked, a red vertical line will be placed on the chart corresponding to the present day of the year. This is invaluable for assessing, relative to the present, what the trend for the balance of the year tends to be. Cool stuff, huh?

I’m a neat freak. Felix Unger. OCD. Anal-retentive. A order nut. Call it what you will.

I like things to be clean, organized, and in their place. This is woven into Slope’s DNA, with one glaring exception: our intraday charts have always been littered with the kinds of data errors that have been part and parcel of the financial data industry since time began. It’s just plain gross, and always has been, and it renders the charts useless.
