WD Gann Lost Secrets and Mysteries 3
WD GANN’S PERSPECTIVE
We need to look at things from Mr. Gann’s perspective and belief system. It’s important that we come to understand W.D. Gann’s belief in what he would share with others and what he would not.
W. D. Gann was a believer in hard work and long working hours, days, weeks, months and years. He firmly believed in it and he practiced it from all accounts, working long days and researching some subjects for 10 years at a time.
Gann produced volumes of Charts and data on every market, historical war dates to determine the cycles of wars, and reams of papers representing decades of research work into mathematics and market trends.
The result of his mindset and belief system was reflected in how he communicated with other traders and clients and extended to what he expected others to do as well.
As a 33rd Degree Mason, he was quite familiar with the concept of working through to higher levels (degrees) of understanding and disciplining himself to learn those higher levels of mystery and knowledge.
He certainly expected (and stated so in interviews) that his students must work as hard as he did and put in the same years of research to deserve access to his ‘secrets’.
But, and this is critical, they’d have to find those secrets for themselves, just like he did.
He wasn’t ever intending to give or sell those secrets to anyone.
AND HE DIDN’T! . . .
