Francis Hunt

The Market Sniper

Trader, Technical Analyst and TeacherFrancis Hunt, known as The Market Sniper and The Crypto Sniper is the originator of the Hunt Volatility Funnel, (HVF) trading methodology. Stemming from his over 26 years of experience and deep immersion in trading and technical analysis of various markets, this unique approach to trading is the culmination of everything he found to have been valuable and profitable on a consistent, reliable basis, distilled into a single all-encompassing trading system that can easily be learned and internalised by others.


He believes that most traders and the strategies they pursue expend too much effort chasing marginal rewards. For this reason, Francis coaches his students to trade much less frequently than the norm, focussing on high probability, high reward breakout trades from a very specific chart pattern known as the Hunt Volatility Funnel (HVF for short). This pattern occurs regularly across all markets and timeframes giving ample trading opportunity. However, the HVF Methodology is unique in that it provides emotional comfort to the trader as each potential trade has the full set of criteria including entry, target/ exit and stop-loss as well as trade sizing and risk to reward assessment predetermined. This level of clarity on a potential trade is frankly impossible with any other trading methodology and invaluable to both new and experienced retail traders alike.



Francis Hunt bought his first option at 21 years of age back in 1989 and has been trading equities and other assets ever since. He is a technical trader who believes all information related to an asset is reflected in its price and therefore reveal the true market sentiment of that asset. In addition to being a highly successful trader and technical analyst, Francis also enjoys teaching his trading methodology to others and in doing so he is building a community of like-minded traders around him that supports him and each other with trade ideas and positive reinforcement in an otherwise lonely and harsh environment.
