Learn all the best DSP and Cycles trading techniques in just 3 days.

An intimate and no-holds-barred 3 day personal workshop with John Ehlers

Imagine having a Roadmap for using DSP and Cycles in your own trading

In this workshop, John will guide you step-by-step on how to get started applying Digital Signal Processing and Cycles techniques in your own trading.

From basic concepts right through to advanced techniques, John is going to share all of his research with you .

In this exclusive workshop you'll learn...

By the time you complete the 3 day workshop you will have a solid understanding of:

  • The spectral structure of the markets and how that data helps to formulate your models, filters and indicators.
  • How to use advanced DSP techniques - only a small subset apply to trading, you'll know which ones and how to use them.
  • Indicators that really indicate - indicators that can actually be used to make predictions and project prices into the future.
  • Techniques to creating robust trading strategies across all different symbols, timeframes and market conditions.
  • The most important factors you need to understand for successful Intraday trading strategies.

What people say about John Ehlers

"If John Ehlers writes it, I read it. He's that brilliant.

- Larry Williams

"It's refreshing to find new ideas in a business that's become so competitive and often filled with variations on the same themes.

- Perry Kaufman

"John Ehlers ranks with Art Merrill as the best quantitative technical analyst of the twentieth and, probably, the twenty-first century.

 - John Sweeney

"John is one of those rare breed of analysts who dives into the why and how of things and not the often used superficial approach.

 - Greg Morris
