How it works
Hurst Cycles & FLD Trading Strategy – For Everyone!

Hurst Signals is an online, web-based service that gives you buy/sell trading signals for popular markets (forex, index futures and commodities) and is based on the FLD Trading Strategy. The strategy is a modern-day development of JM Hurst’s Market Cycles Principles and was formalized into a trading plan by David Hickson, creator of Sentient Trader.

David has spent over 20 years trading forex, index futures and commodities using Hurst Cycles. His knowledge and expertise led to the commercial release of Sentient Trader in 2010. In 2012 the FLD Trading Strategy was launched, which is a further development of JM Hurst’s original Cyclic Theory.

The FLD Trading Strategy originally depended on our Sentient Trader software to use it effectively, but for many traders this was a problem. It meant having to buy, install, learn how to use and maintain the software and market data feed.

Over the years, lots of traders have told us they want an easy to use, web-based service that gives them Hurst Cycles Analysis and Hurst Cycles Trading Signals. That’s how the Hurst Signals Service came to be created.

Hurst Signals features:

  • Hurst Cycles Analysis done for you
  • Identification of Trading Opportunities based on FLD Trading Strategy
  • Covers major markets, e.g. forex, indices and commodities
  • Charts and trading opportunities available online
  • No requirement for a market data feed.

Since we introduced it in October 2012, the feedback from traders who have attended our original FLD Trading Strategy training course has been fantastic. Now we want to give even more traders the opportunity to benefit from the FLD Trading Strategy. That’s why we’ve introduced Hurst Signals.

How Many Trading Signals Can You Expect Every Month?


This is a Frequently Asked Question. Let’s try to answer it here.

In each 80 Day Hurst Cycle, there are 8 price / FLD interactions, which are categorized from A to H. Please note that the average length of an 80 Day Hurst Cycle is actually 68 days (Hurst’s Nominal Model).

Usually, you would never take a category B or category G trade (this is explained in the Hurst Signals Training Course).

Therefore in every 67 days, there are usually 6 price / FLD interactions, or Trading Opportunities. In round figures, let’s say…

  • 1 Trading Opportunity, per Instrument, every 10 days, or
  • 2 to 3 Trading Opportunities, per Instrument, per month.

There are two Portfolio sizes to choose from:


3 Instruments Portfolio


  • This portfolio should give you 6 to 9 Trading Opportunities per month
  • The average cost of a Trading Opportunity is as low as $4.33 (3 Instruments cost $39 per month).

8 Instruments Portfolio


  • This portfolio should give you 16 to 24 Trading Opportunities per month
  • The average cost of a Trading Opportunity is as low as $3.29 (8 Instruments cost $79 per month).

Please note, the quantities of Trading Opportunities you can expect each month are not guaranteed. There are many things you should consider before deciding to take a trade and these calculations are for guidance only.
