Cycle Brackets

For illustrative purposes only, not a recommendation.


Cycle brackets break the time line into periods of equal length. This can be especially useful when attempting to reveal the market cycles. The periods can be marked as arcs of a certain radius or equidistant lines.

In order to add the cycle brackets drawing to chart, choose it from the Active Tool menu. Specify begin and end points of the hypothetical cycle; the brackets will be drawn automatically.



  • Draw as. Defines whether to display the drawing as arcs or lines.

  • Visible. Set this property to "No" in order to hide the cycle brackets.


  • Period. Defines the length of a cycle, in bars.

Start time:

  • Date/Time. Defines the time scale value corresponding to the start point of the cycle.
