Date Analysis

Date Analysis is a button located at the top of SlopeCharts only when you are in Time Perspective mode (as a reminder, this is a premium service, available to Bronze, Silver, Gold, and Diamond members). You can watch a video about this feature here.

When you click the Date Analysis button, you are presented with a wealth of information, answering such questions as:

  • What was the average performance for this instrument for each month of all the years it has existed?
  • What months are worst and best? (You can sort the columns).
  • How does this instrument behave on Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday?
  • What percentage of those days of the week are losers and winners? What’s the average change during each of those days?
  • What’s the record high? When did it happen?
  • How about the record low?
  • What are the best five years, and what were the changes?
  • How about the worst five years?
  • What is the typical performance for this instrument one week, one month, and one year from now?
