W.D. Gann

W.D. Gann was a legendary trader who died in 1955. You can find more information about his background, accomplishments and works on the internet. His greatest contribution to technical analysis was to prove that there is a definite relationship between time and price. At the beginning of major moves up or down, the relationship is exact. Furthermore, price levels are related to some other price levels in the past and the same goes for time.

 

Although most people are interested in his predictions and how he did it, Gann was a trend follower. He used Geocentric and Heliocentric planetary cycles in his work to arrive at extremely accurate price levels. On this website, unless specified, all positions are Geocentric. The objective of this section of the website is to explain Gann methodology in simplest possible terms and language. Most of this work was done many years ago. Hence, some of the information is somewhat dated. There are no time-price-volume charts here because they are just a few keystrokes away for free on the internet plus the inspiration comes from Gann books and courses which also include a limited number of charts. The natural cycles are as valid today as they were when Gann was alive or when someone made the first trade on Earth thousands if not millions of years ago!

It has taken me 20+ years and more than 50 re-reads of Gann's works to arrive at what's presented here. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me and I would be glad to help.
