**Nick, how is this power function calculated? Or is it top secret? **

I'd like to help out with backtesting and crunch some data for us all to see how reliable this is.

There is not any secret here.

Step 1. Calculate the Average & SD

for the Long Cycle

Step 2. Calculate the Average & SD for the Sort Cycle

Step 3. Calculate the Upper Limit of the Graph using 1 Standard Deviation for both cases.

Step 4. Calculate the Difference between Sort & Long Cycles.

Step 4 is the answer of the Power Rating.

We could use different confidence levels but for this kind

of analysis one Standard Deviation is sufficient.
