\documentclass[svgnames]{beamer}
\setbeamertemplate{background canvas}[vertical shading]%
  [top=blue!1,bottom=blue!30]
\setbeamertemplate{navigation symbols}{}
\usepackage{tikz}
% The table is built using TikZ matrix library features:
\usetikzlibrary{matrix}
% Defining some symbols:
\newcommand*\up{\textcolor{YellowGreen}{$\blacktriangle$}}
\newcommand*\down{\textcolor{Red}{$\blacktriangledown$}}
\newcommand*\const{\textcolor{darkgray}{\textbf{--}}}
\newcommand*\head[1]{\textbf{#1}}
% The table environment:
\newenvironment{matrixtable}[4]{%
  \begin{tikzpicture}[matrix of nodes/.style={
    execute at begin cell=\node\bgroup\strut,
    execute at end cell=\egroup;}]
  \matrix (m) [matrix of nodes,top color=blue!20,
    bottom color=blue!80,draw=white,
    nodes={draw,top color=blue!10,bottom color=blue!35,
    draw,inner sep=2pt,minimum height=3.1ex},
    column sep=1ex,row sep=0.6ex,inner sep=2ex,
    rounded corners,column 1/.style={minimum width=#1},
    column 2/.style={minimum width=#2},
    column 3/.style={minimum width=#3},
    column 4/.style={minimum width=#4}]}%
