Futurama

By -

I was playing around with the Future Trend function in SlopeCharts this morning, and the results I was seeing among ETFs was fascinating. Since Future is based on past price behavior, it is very, very, very biased to the upside, because – – in case no one mentioned it here on Slope – – central bankers have firehosed trillions of dollars of “money” at assets for the past eleven years, so things are tilted skyward.

With that in mind, let’s take a look at what is projected. The “diamonds”, the ETF based on the Dow Industrials, looks poised to continue marching in perpetuity. What I find really interesting – – and you’ll see this on many charts below – – is how obedient even future price action is with respect to the drawn objects.

Introducing Grid Charts

By -

There is a SlopeCharts feature which has been in the works for months which I’m very pleased to finally introduce: Grid Charts. I have decided, for now at least, to give access to this feature to everyone, including free Sloper accounts.

Grid charts allow you to display a given financial instrument not just once but two, three, or four times. The charts will be stacked on top of each other vertically, and you can zoom and and interact with each pane independently.

NEW! Date Analysis

By -

You are going to LOVE this one. Please note to hit Ctrl-F5 on your SlopeCharts page to try it out (so you get a fresh copy).

SlopeCharts continues to get farther and farther ahead of everyone else, including my (now-deceased) former creation, ProphetCharts, which evidently Ameritrade finally took out behind the barn and shot. (Actually, a Sloper just told me some folks can still get to it, but Ameritrade has said it’s gone for good next month).

We introduced Time Perspective charts only a few days ago. Now we have doubled down on this excellence with a new button, Date Analysis, which you will see at the top of SlopeCharts when you are in Time Perspective mode (as a reminder, this is a premium service, so if you’re not a subscriber yet, there’s no time like the present, especially since I’m about to increase prices on July 1st).

Perspective

By -

For those of you who are not premium members (which includes, incredibly, some 4- and 5-star generals here), I want to offer you two compelling reasons to sign up for Bronze, the lowest premium level, immediately.

Reason number ONE is that I’m going to be increasing its price by 50% in a week. So if you get it now, you get to permanently locked in the ridiculously cheap 9.95/month price. Reason number TWO is that you’ll get access to the Time Perspective charts (and a bunch of other features), which I’m going to describe below. So anyway, seize the opportunity and sign up for Bronze now (or, to save even more, get a Bronze Annual). Those with free accounts do not get to access this feature.
