Q: What makes QuantCycles unique and different from other technical analysis?

Q: Can a novice trader learn your system?
A: Yes. QuantCycles is a directional indicator designed to give you confidence in the market’s overall behavior. Just remember that every time you trade you must be trading according to a well-thought- out and calculated plan.

Q: Is this a standalone tool?
A: Our indicator is designed to work with the NinjaTrader platform. Our End of Day analysis is independent of your particular system. Many experienced traders use it in conjunction with other indicators to settle their trading.

Q: How difficult is your system?

Q: I’m having trouble installing the indicator in NinjaTrader.
A: If you have any problems during installation, please contact us at team@quantcycles.com

Q: I have read that the data for FOREX is free on NinjaTrader.  If yes, is the free data sufficient for QuantCycles or do I need to purchase additional data (Kinetic, Bar chart, etc.)?
A: The free FOREX data should provide adequate data for our analysis.

Q: I just purchased the Live Micro Futures. I trade NQ and was wondering if you could help me with the Best Time Frame and the Best Setting I should be using for best results.
A: We can help guide you to set up the best setting for the specific time frame that you are trading. However, we cannot recommend what time frame you should be trading.

Q: Is this an automated program?
A: This is not an automated program. We provide analysis; not a buy or sale research.

Q: Is there less than 5-minute data available?
A: Yes, we provide 1 and 3-minute data for markets that are very liquid, such as E-mini futures,Crude Oil and Gold.

Q: Are you more consistent in one market over another?
A: Yes. There are markets with a higher percentage of accuracy. Historically there are better results in heating oil than soy beans because of the higher percentage of cyclical behavior. We are able to extract more data.

Q: Is it meaningful if the next projected low is lower than the previous price low?
A: Yes. Our analysis is graphical and you can gage support and resistance from our opportunity zones and observe the amplitude of the projection.
