Above Average!

By -

We have an extremely important, and long-requested, improvement in SlopeCharts to announce. This has to do with technical studies: specifically, the moving averages.

We recently expanded our moving averages to four kinds – Simple, Exponential, Weighted, and Hull. Now we have taken things a step further by introducing three levels of granularity Daily, Weekly, and Monthly (whereas before you had no choice but Daily).

You can establish these parameters when you set up any moving average study.


Advances and Declines

By -

A while ago, we introduced our Statistics data panel. An important part of that panel was the Advances/Declines data, but we had to get rid of it because the data vendor stopped providing it. Undaunted, we decided to create the data ourselves! So I’m delighted to let you know the Statistics data panel is back, and frankly I think the data is better than ever (since we created it this time).

The Slope of Hope system calculates each day the number of stocks that increased in value, the number that decreased in value, what the sum total of those values is, and what the “running” total is back to the beginning of its calculation, many years ago.
