After many, many, many requests (I’m looking at you, Violet), I decided to expand intraday SlopeCharts access to Silver, Gold, and Diamond members. You can see premium memberships here. This data will grow from this point forward, so in a couple of months we’ll have deeper data than just about anyone on the web.(more…)
Slope of Hope Blog Posts
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.
This is a friendly reminder about the most appropriate bookmark in your browser for Slope: specifically, it should be https://slopeofhope.com which will take you to a customized home page based on your membership level. I just wanted to be sure folks weren’t bookmarking, for example, the blog page, because there’s a lot more to Slope these days, and I’m trying to keep the custom home pages up-to-date with the most relevant features.
So much has been happening on Slope lately, it’s easy to lose track. I’ve been rearranging and polishing the menus and navigation of the site to try to make things more “exposed” and obvious, but I wanted to highlight three particular items, each of which is hyperlinked to its page:
- Sector Performance – This page offers about a dozen different views into relative sector performance, including real-time data to show what’s happening on the current trading day;
- Big Movers – This shows the present day’s big “up” and “down” equities;
- SlopeRules – Over the past couple of weeks, there have been about a dozen improvements, the most important of which is illustrated with this video (and, within the next 24 hours, we’ll be rolling out MACD rules)
This is an iterative process. I create stuff. You try it out. You write to me and tell me what you’d like improved. Then I go back to work. This is how we make things better, and have done so for 14 years strong now.
We put together a spiffy new page Tuesday night that I wanted you to know about: the Gainers/Losers page, accessed here:
Which yields the big gainers and losers on U.S. markets:
There are plenty of other small improvements like this coming down the road on Slope.
I have a rather unique vantage point as the owner of this little corner of the Internet. People from various parts of the world know me by way of Slope as well as my show on tastytrade, and some of the bears among them (God love ’em) consider me their ursine patron saint, so when things are going badly (like, oh, the past six weeks nonstop) they reach out to me.
Well, last night, this is pretty much what I experienced:
From time to time, I get the opportunity to just spend some time with the site and look for little things I want to improve. Today, I decided it was high time to jettison the “quick start” video for two reasons:
- It was WAY too long;
- The audio was just horrible; I sounded like I was in a cave.
Thus, here’s the new 59-second, easy-to-understand-my-voice video:
