Cycles are a unique kind of trading analytics, being one of the few types of market data that can be accurately measured. But understanding what the cycles mean and which trades to make based on them is an extremely complex process. Cycle Analytics for Traders is a technical resource for self-directed traders that explains the scientific underpinnings of the filters and indicators used to make effective and profitable trading decisions. Rather than simply using cycle analytics on blind faith, this book explores and explains the how and why.

"For the self-directed trader with a mathematical bent, this is the ultimate work. I especially enjoyed the descriptions of trading strategies as they apply to the various analytics."
 —Larry McMillan, author of "Options as a Strategic Investment"

"John is one of those rare breed of analysts who dives into the why and how of things and not the often used superficial approach."
 —Gregory L. Morris, Chairman, Stadion Money Management, LLC

"It's refreshing to find new ideas in a business that's become so competitive and often filled with variations on the same themes."
 —Perry Kaufman, Managing Director, Kaufman Analytics Ltd.
Rocket Science for Traders moves quickly from the basic building blocks to the heart and soul of this technical analysis method. Unique indicators, including Signal-to-Noise Ratio and the Sinewave Indicator, are discussed. Finite Impulse Response (FIR) and Infinite Impulse Response (IIR) filters are thoroughly described. Learn how to generate predictive filters and when to use them for optimum effectiveness.

In his goal to revolutionize the art of trading, John Ehlers has uncovered effective new trading tools by introducing the concept of modern Digital Signal Processing (DSP).
