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."

The most advanced and user friendly software available for cycles analysis/trading. Both time saving and life changing. The educational support is excellent."

One of the greatest values of the Analyst version of Sentient Trader is that it helps me better see the energetic variables taking place in the market.
Primarily, it allows me see what might be coming around the next bend in the market and about when I can anticipate a change happening. As such it helps to keep me out of trouble by not becoming agressive in my trades just before a significant cycle downturn. Likewise, it allows me to enter long trades with more confidence after coming out of a cycle bottom. And when the cycles are telling me a top is near, I use ST cycle analysis to tell me when to go long with some of the inverse ETFs by analyzing which ones of those are coming out of a significant cycle bottom.
Bottom line, I see it as a tool that increases my probability of success trading both sides of the market and one that helps me to be more disciplined in my trading overall."

If you're serious about using cycles to support your trading efforts, Sentient Trader is a must-have!"
