NEW SITE IMPROVEMENT: Please Provide Your Feedback
Veteran users of this site are likely (almost) as frustrated as I with the broken "Today's Markets" module on the front page.
It used to show the current prices for gold, silver, oil and the S&P 500. Right now, it's a broken display.
Some good news: that's getting fixed soon. A BETTER version should be in place before the end of December.
And here's more good news: the Today's Market's page that this module used to link to has been dramatically improved. And that's what I'd love your feedback on.
My goal with this page is to create a "one-stop shop" dashboard for Peak Prosperity readers to keep up on the major intra-day developments of the markets.
To be able to easily see what's going on with the major US and international stock and bond markets, commodities, exchange rates, forex and cryptocurrencies — as well as key macro indicators, and a calendar of the week's upcoming important data releases.
So, please take a moment to check the page out. And if you have any positive or constructive feedback to offer, please let us know in the Comments section here below.
You can access the page directly via this link: https://www.peakprosperity.com/todaysmarkets
Or you can go to the (currently still broken) Today's Markets module on the front page and click the More Prices and Charts link.
Thanks in advance for your feedback!
Any feedback on this new dashboard folks?
The new dashboard certainly is a big improvement. I didn’t realize the old one was serving broken/absent info to everyone, I thought it was just me!
The new one has a plethora of information, so much that it takes longer to load than a typical webpage for sure. But it’s organized in a “funnel-format, press release style” with the most general stuff at the top, then getting more grainular further down. So I like it.
This really shortens the time that it takes to get a broad look at the world’s markets. It is all in one place. Very handy. (Previously I had a circuit of 5 websites that I would visit.)
I wonder if a link to the finviz S&P 500 “map” would be helpful, too?
Didn’t like the old one so never used it. Would use the new one though. Like the summary on top with details below.
I would like to see the 10 year bond somewhere in the summary section.
Otherwise, looks good.
Thanks for the feedback so far — nice to hear the new page sounds well-received.
q-botsy: The serving speed of this page should improve within the next few weeks, when we have caching for this page optimized.
sand_puppy: adding a link to the Finviz futures heat map will be easy to do.
Granny: glad you like it. My hope is that we all start using this page on a regular basis. If we aren’t, then that’s a sign it’s not useful enough and needs more tweaking. So please, let me know if this indeed becomes part of your daily web surfing habits or not.
Keep the feedback coming!
hail: The summary module doesn’t currently offer the option to include bond data.
But the development team for the service we’re using seems to be listening to me when I make a special request asking for changes to their code. So I’ll ask them to put adding Bond summary data onto their worklist.
As an FYI, I’ve also asked them to create a similar chart as they have for the US 10-year rate for LIBOR (which they don’t offer yet). If they’re able to create an API for that, I’ll add a LIBOR chart to this page, too.
This is a nice improvement, thank you Adam. I would personally prefer to see gold listed right there on the default top -below the indices perhaps-so as not to have to push the commodities tab, but I get that is not as nicely organized. I still tend to use the yahoo finance page top bar as my daily market monitor because it seems to update/refresh rapidly and on exciting days it’s sometimes interesting to watch things change in real time- I am thinking I’d need to hit refresh with this format to see change. Lastly- as a long time user I have found that with rapidly dynamic EEE issues like melting reactors or markets that I should monitor the comment section of the most recent pertinent article on the site or the DD comments to get Dr M’s and other’s impressions of the daily/ hourly developments. Would there be a way to have a linked running comment thread on this page so that I’d be sure to be monitoring the right thread for daily development observations- some kind of central hub thread?
Exponential gratitude for all of your efforts
It is a nice improvement Adam. I meant to comment when it first appeared but as with many things these days ………. it went by the way!
I do check the reports daily, if not multiple times daily so having all of the information easily accessible is a big help. Nice work.
