Although I’m not a mathematician, my appetite for indicators was stimulated by John Ehlers’s March 2000 S&C article, "Hilbert Indicators Tell You When To Trade." Thanks to the lucid explanation of lag elimination in exponential moving averages, I have been able to apply the technique to the Lotus 1-2-3 spreadsheets that I use for stock charting.

However, a similar application of the Hilbert transform to identifying cycles within a historical stock-data string eludes me. I confess to not possessing a program that uses EasyLanguage and ask if you can refer me to a suitable article detailing the use of the transform with a spreadsheet. I may say I am averse to taking a black-box approach when it comes to generating indicators.

Thank you for writing. Sorry, we haven't published an article on the Hilbert transform with a spreadsheet approach. See also the next letter. —Editor
