Excellent, thanks for sharing!
Great idea!

I've experimented with it some bit and find the following also interesting... It plots the average %-change instead of the average nominal change.

study("5 Period Cycle Seasonality")

Period = input(title="Period Cycle", type=integer , defval=252)

LastYear = (close-close)/close
TwoYearsAgo = (close -close)/close
ThreeYearsAgo = (close -close)/close
FourYearsAgo = (close -close)/close
FiveYearsAgo = (close -close)/close

Offset = Period
LastYearE = (close-close )/close
TwoYearsAgoE = (close -close )/close
ThreeYearsAgoE = (close -close )/close
FourYearsAgoE = (close -close )/close
FiveYearsAgoE = (close -close )/close

plot((LastYearE + TwoYearsAgoE + ThreeYearsAgoE + FourYearsAgoE + FiveYearsAgoE) / 5, color = #00ff00, linewidth = 2, offset = Offset)
plot((LastYear + TwoYearsAgo + ThreeYearsAgo + FourYearsAgo + FiveYearsAgo) / 5, color = #ff0000, linewidth = 2)
