Cycle Parameters Explained
The following chart summarizes all relevant parameters related to a "perfect" sinewave cyle:
What is Frequency?
Frequency is the number of times a specified event occurs within a specified time interval.Example:5 cycles in 1 second= 5 Hz
1 cycle in 16 days = 0.0625 cycles/day = 723 nHz
What is Strength?
Strength is the relative amplitude of a given cycle per time interval. (“amplitude per bar”).Example: A = 213 , d = 16, s = 13.2 per d

What is Bartels Score?
The Bartels score provides a direct measure of the likelihood that a given cycle is genuine and not random. It measures the stability of the amplitude and phase of each cycle.Formula: B score %= (1-Bartels Value)*100
Range: 0 % : cycle influenced by random events, not significant100 %: cycle is significant / genuine
