The chart below shows the weekly(Saturday night) draw of the Number 10 in the Australian Tattslotto Lottery from July 1985 to July 2005. Two "cycle analysis" routines were performed on the data... one using traditional spectral analysis(fourier) and one using a "realcycle" extraction module.
The results of the cycle analyses are somewhat selfexplanatory... showing the 66.4 week cycle produced by fourier spectral analysis and the 66 week cycle produced by the "realcycle" module. It can be seen graphically that the 66 week cycle for this lottery number shows a high level of significance... though "mathematical skeptics" would no doubt point out the times when the "cycles" invert or move outofphase with the actual data. A greater understanding of cycle mechanics is required! Each
number in a lottery draw resonates to it's own "cycles" over
time... similar to stocks and commodities which each exhibit their own
individual cyclic behaviour. This is "work in progress"... so
more work needs to be performed to finetune the predictability of each
number... but "the glass is half full... rather than half empty"!
