The McClellan Twins!

By -

Great news, SlopeCharts users! We now have both the McClellan Oscillator and the McClellan Summation Index!

The McClellan Oscillator is a breadth indicator in SlopeCharts which is based on the components of the S&P 500. This is an important distinction from other studies, since it will appear consistently from chart to chart, irrespective of what is being charted. The reason is that the calculation is based on the components of the S&P 500 and the quantity among those stocks that are advancing or declining.

For this little experiment, I chose the bottom item from the dropdown, Show Prior Future Trend and Future Trend. As stated on the information page, ” An even more interesting aspect is to “dial back” time and see what would have been predicted in the past and compare it to what actually happened.

I trust many of you have been enjoying the new Comments Search engine. I think it’s a total kick to wander through it, considering the literally millions of comments in the database. Plus, it’s insanely fast. On top of that, we’ve added another feature!

Share and Share Alike

I recently mentioned we were just about done with the ability to share technical study sets on Slope. I am pleased to announce this feature is fully complete and released, and I want to state at the outset how important it is for you to share your studies with others. Because no one has had the ability to share study sets before, the library is understandably almost blank (except for my own contributions), so if you have a study set worth sharing, please, by all means, share it right now! Thank you!
