The Hurst Trader
The Hurst Trader is a software project which David Hickson started developing in 2005. A project which he thought might take a few months has taken 5 years, and counting! It is a trading software package (i.e. software which advises people as to when to buy and when to sell shares/currencies, any tradable financial market). The process the software uses is inspired primarily by the work of JM Hurst, which involves Cyclic Analysis. There are also influences from other trading analysts, particularly those who have developed the work of Hurst. The trading software package is in fact a small part of a larger project called The Money Process, which is a project that deals with the way in which money moves (cyclically) in our lives.

Who is David Hickson?
I’m a filmmaker by profession, a director of film and television drama, as well as multi-camera television shows (such as TV shows like Strictly Come Dancing / Dancing with the Stars, Big Brother, Awards shows, Music concerts and Beauty pageants – I directed Miss World 2007).

If you’d like to check out a movie I made, take a look at Beat the Drum’s website.

I’m a South African, and the film industry in South Africa has left me with some time for hobbies and other interests! Fortunately I have many interests, and two of them come together in The Hurst Trader:
  • Trading (of any variety: stock market; forex; futures; commodities)
  • Coding computer software

I believe that computers are the “thinking machines” that Alan Turing dreamed of back in the early 20th century. I further believe that we haven’t even begun to see what computers can do, that with the right software programming computers can replicate the thought patterns of humans, albeit in a limited one-dimensional way. Hence the name: Sentient Code. It is a mission of mine to produce computer code which (at least superficially) appears to “think”. Sentient Code is a division of my software company “Fortuna Software”.

Take a look at my first posting in the Development blog for more of my background.

Orient didn't invent the power-reserve indicator, Jaeger-LeCoultre gets those bona fides; however, starting in the rolex replica 1950s, Orient did manage to put them into affordable watches in a way that really none other has achieved. Watches with power-reserve indicators often rolex replica cost over $1,000. While Miyota has developed a cheaper mechanism with a power-reserve indicator, Orient's is a true in-house rolex replica sale movement: built on its base 46N45 caliber that's been well refined over the years, offering 40 hours of hublot replica uk charge (as all the models in this review do, in fact). The power-reserve indicator on the Orient FFD0F004W0 here makes it a true bargain at just over $450. Placed unexpectedly at the top of the dial, it both rolex replica sale enhances the Orient FFD0F004W0's elegant symmetry, and also provides functionality not always present in more traditional dress rolex replica uk options. The 40mm case diameter looks contemporary on the replica watches sale wrist, while stopping short of being too big for a dress watch.
