FAQ

Some common questions from our current clients

Q: What makes QuantCycles unique and different from other technical analysis?
A: Our proprietary algorithms filter multiple cycles from historical data, combines them, and gives a
graphical representation of their predictive behavior.

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: Yes, it is a standalone tool. However, many experienced traders use it in conjunction with other
indicators to settle their trading.

Q: Is there a free trial?
A: QuantCycles offer free trials only during special promotions.

Q: How difficult is your system?
A: Our system is very simplistic. It gives you a graphical display of the probable projected behavior of
the market, within specific parameters.

Q: Will you be going over live trades as they setup for educational purposes? 
A:  We will announce available web conferencing options to assist subscribers in the learning process.

Q: Do you have a live demo about how QuantCycles works or training videos?
A: Yes. Check our demo videos on our website.

Q: How do I change my password?
A: On the front page of our website, go to the upper right corner and click on your name/icon. On the
Profile page scroll down to Account Management, New Password, Set New Password. Change the
default password to your preference.

Q: Can I make changes to a subscription I already purchased?
A: Yes you can. However, you need to cancel your initial subscription within 10 days, then subscribe to
the new option that you desire. The payment for your initial subscription will be fully refunded.

Q: I’m trying to download the install and I get a message that my download link has expired?
What can I do?
A: Download files provided to subscribers at time of purchase, expire after 7 days.
If users get a download expiration message, users can go into their account and get their download
from the Members Area, Manage, at any time.

Q: The NT8 version is quite different from NT7. It has a time projected into the future on the center
projected line, and it tells you in text the current sentiment. Can you please explain?
A: We have visually changed the appearance of the graphics. The current appearance of the cycle is
based on the color of the histogram. Green is up, red is down. If it’s green, the sentiment is bullish, if
it’s red, the sentiment is bearish.

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: If I subscribe to the NinjaTrader Live package, is End of Day also included?
A: If you subscribe to any Live product at regular price, the End of Day is included.

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: What do the components of the indicator mean?

A: Check our demo video on our website. You may also send a request to team@quantcycles.com for
additional support.

Q: Is there less than 5-minute data available?
A: Yes, we provide I, 2 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.

Q: Do parameters change per time frame?
A: Yes, they do. Please refer to instructions below on how to change parameters.
