  • (Square Root Of High) – 1.4= (Low)^2
  • Why 1.4? In Trigonometry 360 Degrees Is Defined As 2, so 250 Degree Is 1.4. We Are Calculation New Cyclic Low, so We Had Subtracted Square Root Of High.
  • If We Were To Find The High Then We Will Add The Degrees To The Square Root Of Low.
  • (Square Root Of 1460) -1.4= 38.2-36.8
    • 36.8*36.8=1354
  • The Exact Low S&P 500 made during This Period Is 1364 which Is Only 10 Point Difference, Form Our Calculated Value.
