To increase the book s functionality and ease of use, eachnew technique, indicator, and automatic trading system is definedin both EasyLanguage code (for use in TradeStation™) andeSignal Formula Script (EFS) code. DLLs to work with NeuroShellTrader are also available.

  • The Fisher Transform ensure that the density function ofany indicator is Gaussian, creating sharper trading signals
  • The Relative Vigor Index a responsive oscillator in whichmovement is normalized to the trading range of each bar
  • Improved Hilbert Transform a more responsive method toaccurately measure market cycles
  • The Sinewave Indicator a non-causal filter that givesentry and exit signals 1/16 of a cycle period in advance of theturning point
  • The Laguerre Transform a new tool to address the smoothingversus lag problem more effectively and create better smoothingfilters
  • Super Smoothing Filters provide more smoothing with lesslag
  • Simple Moving Average Computations two new ways to computethe simple moving average with unprecedented ease

Advances made in computer technology in the past two decadeshave clearly outpaced advances in trading software and practice.Cybernetic Analysis for Stocks and Futures seeks to restore thebalance between computational power and user proficiency.
