Cosine IFM [Ehlers]

This indicator provides a continuous measurement of a securities' dominant cycle period, based on Ehlers ever-impressive reports and analysis tools.

>What does that even mean?
Essentially, you get a real-time (low lag) plot of the cycle period in bars. If the COS IFM reads "16" then you can expect the distance between swing highs and swing lows to be approx. 16 bars.

>How is this useful?
When you throw an RSI or MACD on your chart, you can now set the "Period" or "Length" value with confidence.
Knowing the dominant cycle period tells you that price reversal will occur around these intervals.

>Extending.
The better way to use this tool is by extending the script into any indicators that use a length or period that is set manually.
Simply use the "len" variable in your custom script to replace your input values.

Now you have a way to adaptively set the period value, using signal processing theory instead of just intuition ;)
