Press Release – Sentient Trader

SENTIENT TRADER cycles to Profit with JM Hurst

Mogliano, Macerata, Italy (25th October 2010)

In a pioneering development set to benefit day traders and swing traders alike, the cyclic theories of JM Hurst have been interpreted and developed by Sentient Trader into a modern computer trading system.

The culmination of five years’ development, the Hurst Trading System is released today by Sentient Trader. The application captures all the theories published by Hurst, both in his book “The Profit Magic of Stock Transaction Timing” and the far more complex theories described in the “JM Hurst Cycles Trading and Training Course“.

Taking Hurst’s work as the foundation, Sentient Trader has further refined it with the latest thinking on market cycles, including many innovations that improve performance for traders specializing in Technical Analysis. This powerful trading tool produces Buy and Sell recommendations and generates Take Profit and Stop Loss orders in real-time.

Sentient Trader is the brainchild of David Hickson, who has held a life-long fascination with the cyclical nature of economics, politics and the financial markets. He comments, “The project began in 2005 as a quest to convert Hurst’s theories into a computer application that would give me an edge in my personal trading. Today is a landmark day, with the full commercial release of the Hurst Trading System. I am very proud to be the first person to turn all of Hurst’s work into a modern trading system that is capable of identifying winning trades in any financial market.”

In May 2008, David began blogging about Sentient Trader. Since that time, he has gathered a loyal following of traders who have tested the software, suggested improvements and today are using it successfully. Since June 2009 it has been tested and used for live trading by a growing community of traders. Many in the Sentient Trader community depend heavily on the Hurst Trading System to make trading decisions and judging by their testimonials, they are making healthy profits as well.

The Sentient Trader community has access to a range of regularly updated support materials including training videos and webinars, and participation in a user forum to exchange trading ideas. Commenting on the project, David said, “At times, the complexity of interpreting Hurst’s work seemed overwhelming. When the going got tough, it was the encouragement of my beta testers that kept me going. When I heard about them profiting from the system, I began to realize the true commercial potential of what I had created.”

About David Hickson

I have been trading for over 20 years, but only had any success after discovering Hurst's cyclic principles. Unable to find any software to speed up the analysis process I created Sentient Trader software, which now pretty much does all the analysis for me. I am a film maker and a TV director, but nowadays I mostly provide consultation services to professional traders and fund managers, helping them to integrate Hurst analysis into their trading. I'm South African and live with my family in Italy.
