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!

Now, when you get a search result, you can sort the entire data-set by either Date (the default) or by Rating. The Rating sort is particularly useful, since you can quickly ascertain which comments received the most accolades from other Slopers, suggesting which comments are the most useful.

Seek and Ye Shall Find

I’ve got a terrific new feature on Slope to announce.

Whenever we create a new product or feature, there is sometimes a “chicken and egg” problem. The recent introduction of the ability to share study sets is a perfect example of this.

In this instance, the feature is only really useful if a lot of people have contributed their study lists to it, and since I was the only one who had done so (by definition), I had to pretty much beg, plead, and cajole people into doing so until a few people, God bless ’em, finally stepped up to the plate.

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!

How Do I Use Slope?

On Friday afternoon, I received an email from a premium member which read, in part:

I’ve been a diamond member for a short while (less than a year). I’m trying to better understand the best way to use your services. I get the impression that it’s not necessarily a trade recommendation service since it can be difficult to see your entries/exits unless you state your stops. I think it’s a service to promote the learning and usage of charts to enhance trading but I’m not sure about that since there doesn’t seem to be much instruction (unless I missed it). So I thought I’d go straight to the source to get your elevator pitch on how I should be using it.
