There are a number of products on Slope designed to help options traders in their exploration and analysis, such as the payoff graph, volatility charts, price change charts, earnings reaction charts, and the exclusive OptionDots system, built directly into SlopeCharts.

Create SlopeCharts

Charts are a critical part of investing life. There are many charts available online, but none of them are like SlopeCharts,  the brainchild of Slope founder, Tim Knight. SlopeCharts, which is available free of charge, embraces several core values: (1) Ease of Use: Using SlopeCharts is intuitive, simple, and a breeze to learn (2) Organized: There is no charting product in the world that comes close in watch list management, which is how you keep your trading world in good order (3) Patterns-Focused: History tends to repeat itself.

Make Chart

Develop SlopeRules

SlopeRules is a feature in SlopeCharts which lets you create a trading system using discrete technical rules for entering and exiting positions. It is deliberately designed to be intuitive and very simple to use, and it is closely integrated with the SlopeCharts platform. Unlike other trading systems, you don't need to learn code like a programmer. Instead, just drag and drop the rules that make sense to you, test them in real time, and get automatic alerts.
