The **Transformer** in *SlopeCharts* is a unique way to apply a formula to *every single symbol you enter*. This is a **premium feature** available to members of the Bronze, Silver, Gold, or Platinum levels. This can be a tremendous time-saver if you want to have a customized perspective into any symbols you enter, particularly those within a watch list, since it is vastly more efficient to have the formula automatically applied as opposed to altering every symbol you want to see.

A very simple **example** would be if you wanted to view a series of assets proportionate to the Federal Reserve’s M2 money supply. In other words, you want to see every symbol divided by the M2 value. This new perspective might lead you to some important new insights.

To create this transformation formula, you would choose the **Settings **menu item from **Transformer** in the *SlopeCharts ***Tools** menu.

A dialog box is presented in which you can enter a **formula**. You can enter any kind of formula you like, as long as the format is valid. You can use **any of these characters to construct a formula:**

- Any equity or index
**symbol**which is denoted by the word**SYMBOL**which is the placeholder for any given symbol that will be used within the formula - Any basic arithmetic
**operators**(+, -, *, /) - Real
**numbers**(5, 12, 50, etc.) **Parentheses**- Other legitimate
**symbols**

Returning to the “divide everything by M2” example, you would simple enter this:

This is the simplest transformation possible. There is the **symbol **itself **divided **by **another **symbol (in this case FR:M2 which represents the M2 money supply). After you click the **Save **button, you name the transformation formula:

Any formulas you create will be preserved in your account and are available by clicking the **Transformations **tab in the same dialog box. This tab presents to you all the formulas you have created, if any, and lets you **Load**, **Rename**, or **Delete **any of them.

Any formulae you create are accessible from the same Transformer menu and will have a **star **icon next to it. If you choose to use one, just click on it, and a **checkmark** will replace the star of the formula being used. This will continue to be applied until you choose Clear Transformation. You could, for example, go through an entire watchlist and see every single symbol “transformed” by the formula you entered.

Thus, given the choice above, entering the symbol /GC would take the continuous contract of the gold futures and divide it by the M2 money supply, providing the chart shown below.
