Hurst Analysis

An analysis performed according to Hurst’s Cyclic Principles is called a phasing analysis because it involves working out what the phase is of each cycle influencing the market.

A phasing analysis is a wonderfully complex and yet straight-forward process. It is a skill that is learned and perfected, much like learning to play a musical instrument.

Here are recent analyses performed by the team of analysts who contribute to Hurst Cycles:

Gold Revisited 1

  Gold is always interesting to analyze for a couple of reasons. Firstly, the viewpoints of the participants are usually at polar extremes, the inflationary group that says gold is going to $5000/oz. and beyond, and the deflationary group which is forecasting sub $1000/oz. again. Secondly, gold has a very consistent spectral structure which makes it […]

The 4 year price wave has formed a low for the umpteenth time according to the spectral parameters set […]


USD Index Long Term Cycles 13

One of the reasons why I am skeptical that gold has started a new bull market (ie. multi-year) is the USD and its status. Currencies and gold work off amazingly similar cycles and thus three closely related instruments are gold, the USD Index and the CADUSD pair (Canadian Dollar). The cycles I am working with are […]


Gold Peak coming? 20

Gold is rallying very hard here off the late 2015 lows along with the gold miners. Is this the start of a new gold bull and a persistent rise as we saw from the 2000/2001 lows? Good question. While I had anticipated a rally to start soon in precious metals, I am surprised at its […]
