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.
Only a day or so ago, a Diamond member left this request:
Well, ta-freakin’-da, I’ve done ’em both! Although I confess when zprime29 left this request, I had never heard of a Hull moving average in my life. Suffice it to say that it’s a special moving average which aims to reduce lag.
Let’s take a recap as to the new, improved moving averages in SlopeCharts.
Well, this is irksome. “Virus Optimism” keeps pushing the market higher.In just a few weeks’ time, about 6,000 Dow points have been slapped onto equities. We haven’t violated any key resistance levels, but I’ve got to say, I’m annoyed. I’ve beat a hasty retreat from 150% committed to 75%. This fact probably assures we’ll start plunging on Thursday.
As I see it, getting a Slope membershipis kind of like buying a stock. First, it tends to go up in price (I’ve increased prices on four separate occasions). Second, what you get for what you are paying tends to increase over time, even though you’re not paying more than you were beforehand. This latest improvement is an example of the latter.
In that light, I am pleased pleased to introduce Slope’s latest innovation, the Seismograph, available to all paying members.
Product Development at Slope is definitely heating up again, as you’ve probably noticed. I’m pleased to let you know we’ve made a slick little improvement in the Market Meter. First of all, keep in mind you can see this “only on Slope” creation in three different places.
When you are improving a website over a long period, you tend to get “weeds”, which is the term I use for the kind of growth and clutter and crowds into a product. This was definitely happening with the Preferences dialog box in SlopeCharts, so we decided to give it a face-lift. What used to have three tabs now has six.
In the lower left of SlopeCharts are three icons, the rightmost which resembles a gear. (The leftmost one expands the chart to full size and the middle one brings up brokerage integration).
