WD Gann Lost Secrets and Mysteries page 7
THE PURSUIT OF THE LOST SECRETS
Traders and investors in the markets have spent lives and fortunes in pursuit of the secrets to how W.D. Gann was able to apply his methods in a practical, profitable way in the markets. In fact, this search has been going on for over 100 years to no avail. How did Gann do it?
Was it Magic? Mystery? No, it was method. Actually, several methods I believe. This knowledge consisted of an insightful, cumulative process of steps (many of which I’ve re-discovered) which can reproduce accurate trades without computers, software, astrological tables or mysterious angles. I don’t deny that both the astrological and angle approaches work too. They do when correctly applied.
But, the underlying reason that they do work is the area that I concentrated on re-discovering.
These fundamental re-discoveries are based on the very same factors that Gann left traces of in his courses and books. Because, besides being a great trader and investor, Mr. Gann was most intent on hiding clues to his processes disguised as writings, charts and data.
W.D. GANN’S GREATEST GIFT
Mr. Gann, through his working papers, gave us a way to confirm our own discoveries as he had confirmed his, by testing price data and history and what has happened before in the markets.
BUT, YOU’D HAVE TO FIND THE ORIGINAL PRINCIPLES FOR YOURSELF.
And, that can take time. Lots and lots of time. Sometimes more than we can spare in a Lifetime pursuit. I’ve been most fortunate in this regard and, W.D. Gann’s price data and history writings have allowed me to prove what works as Principle and what does not.
Hidden in Mr. Gann’s scribblings, wheels, squares and data were the Principles that went to the very core of the Knowledge needed to project price tops and bottoms many years into the future.
