I must say that Sentient Trader has been a wonderful investment. The learning tools at the website and the trader chat webinars have really allowed me to come up to speed fairly quickly in using Sentient Trader. I really appreciate all that David and his team are doing. I only wish he could clone himself by about three. It would be exciting to see what he'd come up with if he had even more time. What he and the team have done thus far is fantastic and I really appreciate it."

I recently purchased the Analysis Edition and will probably go on to buy the Trader Edition. After a week's practice I found the software easy to use. I cannot compare Sentient Trader with any other software as it is completely different. I use a Wyckoff volume analysis program and an Australian general charting package.
I have high expectations of using the Underlying Trend as this can be used to enhance my other methods. I think the price is reasonable considering the amount of work to produce this program. By the way, my one and only trade so far is showing 6% profit and is still open ( BOQ.ASX). That pays for the program."

Sentient Trader is a very useful tool to understand and master Hurst's cycle theory. David, his conceptor, made an awesome job in building Sentient Trader which is really useful in shortening dramatically the time necessary to generate by other means a cycle analysis following Hurst principles. This time spared by the software can be used to weigh and evaluate the alternate analysis with the best tool at hands : our brain as David usually said."

I have been using Sentient Trader for over a year. I have used the Hurst method of trading for over 20 years, but never thought software would ever be offered that automates many of the steps involved to properly execute Hurst's strategies. I tried other "Hurst" software...but found them to either be simple cycle and moving envelope tools, or, oversimplifications of Hurst's methods that proved no better than pure guesswork.
The great part about Sentient Trader is that it graphically provides time and price zones. When accompanied with Sentient Trader entry and exit policies (or your own well-reasoned triggers), I found the reversal zones powerfully predictive. I have experienced more consecutive winners than usual since using Sentient Trader and have gotten to a point that I would not want to trade without Sentient Trader.
Support has been prompt and training videos were more than I expected. I would caution new users that Sentient Trader is not a "just add water and stir" trading solution. Sentient Trader has far greater benefit when used with the knowledge obtained in training materials and videos. Automatic trading signals are possible right out-of-the-box, but Sentient Trader should be considered as a framework to create a successful trading system, not as a ready-to-use profit machine."

I have been aware of the Hurst Cycle approach since the 1970s, but have never tackled the systems required to use it. ST allows me to work as an analyst and given that I am trading leveraged and inverse ETFs, the trading history feature has been invaluable for testing and setting up my rules."
