Thanks Todd I'm going to follow it for a while.

It would be nice to have an audible alert for the major cycles!...someday maybe!

Shodson,

Can you tell me where in the code I would put a "playsound" command so I just get the major cycles?

Will that automatically add a field to the indicator page so I can input an audio alert file there?

No Todd. But I will try to find out if anyone can.

Todd, does the indicator show the signal real time? I mean as soon as the bar closes, or does it wait for more bars?

Todd, I don't see any Buy or Sell dots on the chart. Am I missing something?

Thx.

Keep,

There are no dots.. forget about that.

It shows you where it thinks a major cycle change is going to come... it happens in real time, often at the turn or a few bars before the turn... it can be a signal that doesn't turn out to really show a turning point... that is why I just use the major cycle identifier as a heads up and wait for my other indicators to tell me when to get in. Remember, I completely ignore the minor cycle identifier.

Thought I'd give this indicator a try on the 6B using a 4 range chart. Seems spot on.

I made all the lines transparent except for the Major Buy and Major Sell lines.

Attached is an image that also uses StepMA indicators (SMA, step sizes 3, 4, 6). The cycle change indicator could be incorporated into an auto-trader, I think.

sys trader and i fixed that indicator months ago . . .

Hope I didn't step on any toes there.

Thought I might play around with it when I get a little time. It looks like it might help me out. I really appreciate the good work.

I went thru all sarjo posts didn't see any mentioning of cycle at all.

green trader renamed it to xxxgreen, are you saying green trader = sarjo?
greentrader didn't take any credit either. This is another reason why I don't like to stick my name to a indicator I modified least somebody think I try to take a credit for it, no big cap letter either.
