Sine as an indicator? Do you use it? What are the inputs? Time, price, volume, other?

When you say sine do you mean sine weighted average, sinewave, something else?

Here is an example: If sine(price range1/total volume1)/sine(price range2/total volume2)>0 then Buy

If we know any stylized facts about markets it is that it they do not follow a simple periodic waveform.

I just don't see what the reason for that would be.

Imo, I think that you may be viewing Sine in the incorrect context of the market or chart you are trading; as a buy or sell signal, I think it's rather useless. Now if you want to look at, say cyclicality in the form of an area where price may reverse or consolidate before continuing in the prior direction, then I would say yes Sine may be a viable tool for that.

Thank you planetmoto. Using as a reverse or consolidation would be helpful. Is there a common formula or literature on working with sine?
