I finished re-doing my “introduction to Slope” videos, which I think are a huge improvement over what was there before. Here was the final one, and here is the introductory page with all of them.
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.
We’ve made some big improvements, so I wanted to review with you the CryptoStream page. It initially displays the largest symbols, but you can continue to increase the quantity shown by pressing the More Symbols button. The price data updates in real time, and the row highlights whenever there is a price change. You can also click the title of any of the columns to sort it by the values of that column. This is an easy way to instantly see the biggest gainers and losers of the day, for example.(more…)
New Blog Video
OK, two down, five to go. I’m slowly rebuilding out the introductory videos.
On Saturday morning, I woke up after a refreshing night’s sleep with my beautiful wife sleeping next to me. Since I had nothing to attend to, I did what any red-blood American would have done at that moment: I thought about how to judge the relative strength of various cryptocurrency positions.
After exploring the technical studies and having no luck, it dawned on me to use a feature I had almost forgotten about: Transformations! So I created a new Transformer which divided any given symbol by the granddaddy of them all, Bitcoin.(more…)
Filter the Smoke
We just added the ability to filter by options availability, so here is a recap of the filter features in SlopeCharts.
If you want to limit the symbols displayed in your watch lists or your sectors list, you can do so easily with the Filters menu items. The data panel, on the left side of SlopeCharts, can show many kinds of information, but the two panels in which Apply Filters is present are Watch Lists and Sectors.
Click on the panel title at the top to invoke the menu. You have a choice of Filter by Labels (which is related to the Labeling feature), by Sector (related to the Sector feature), or by Properties. You can also wipe out every single filter being used by choosing the Clear All Filters menu item.(more…)
