The Instantaneous Phase Dominant Cycle was created by John Ehlers
(Stocks & Commodities
V. 18:3 (16-27)) and this is one of many similar indicators that I will be publishing from Ehlers
in the next few months that calculate the current dominant cycle period. The cycle period can be used in multiple ways but generally this means that if the stock is currently at a low then the current cycle period will tell you when the next lowest low will get hit or vice versa. This is also useful for using this cycle period as an input for other indicators to provide a very good adaptive length. Let me know how you wind up using these indicators in your daily trading. I have included the same buy and sell signals from my recent Hilbert Transform
and so buy when the line turns green and sell when it turns red.
Let me know if there are any other indicators you would like to see me publish!
