About Hurst Cycles


JM Hurst was an American engineer who, in the 1960s and 70s, was the first researcher to use the power of the modern computer to investigate cycles in the financial markets. JM Hurst is widely recognized today as the ‘father’ of modern cyclic analysis.

Hurst published a book in the early 1970′s called “The Profit Magic of Stock Transaction Timing”, and then followed that with the publication of a workshop-style course, called the Cyclitec Cycles Course, also known as “JM Hurst’s Cycles Course”.

In these two works he presented the Cyclic Theory for which he has become famous. The Profit Magic book proposed a technique for applying his Cyclic Theory, but it was in his later Cycles Course that Hurst presented his truly ground-breaking work.

Analyzing a market according to Hurst Cycles is a combination of science and art. It is a skill that must be learned. Hurst himself stated that analysis was more an art than a science, and this website is dedicated to that art!
