WD GANN: ANGLES, CIRCLES, SQUARES
The legacy that WD GANN left the trading world on how to analyze markets can largely be summed up in three words:
Angles, Circles and Squares
But these, in turn, can be summed up in only one word: GEOMETRY.
The Geometry of the markets as expressed on price charts, that is.
Take a look at the geometric patterns on the sample images above of WD Gann’s several approaches to analyzing the markets.
They have a strange, almost mystical attraction to the eye, but, the real appeal is based on the symmetry created by their mathematical structures.
The above angles, circles and squares are for the now non-existent Egg futures market, but, all of these same methods were applied by Mr. Gann to Wheat, Rye, Cotton and other commodities as well as for the Stock market.
You may not have considered it before, but, there’s a hidden order to those price bars on the charts you view of the markets.
WD Gann was one of the first to seek out and understand that order. He understood it enough to become one of the best traders ever and he recorded an incredible amount of information about those trades in the papers he left behind.
Alas, those papers show only the RESULTS of his deep knowledge about the market, not the actual techniques and their applications.
Most who have followed in Gann’s wake have assumed that what they saw on the charts was the method.
It was not.
That conclusion has been proven by my own research results and the successful results of my client/students in the markets (Read the Testimonials by clicking here.).
There’s now clear evidence that the markets and price movements are not random.
What I think is even more important is that the real core work of WD GANN is even more impressive than is assumed by this generation.
As I’ve penetrated each successive level of his work, I’ve found more evidence of his great genius at work.
Some recently have doubted that there was real content in his papers, books or courses, but, as I’ve stated before, that’s a conclusion based on the hesitation of Mr. Gann to teach his methods and his rather poor teaching/writing style.
I have to say that most of my discoveries were made independently and then, later confirmed by Gann’s work papers.
He’d already discovered those Principles long before and put them to use in the markets!
That should be expected really when you think about it. Natural Laws or Principles don’t change. They’ve been with us since the beginning.
They can only be lost and then re-discovered.
There is a wealth of WD Gann insights to be learned but, one must be willing to ‘throw away the rulebook’ when it comes to approaching his material.
By the way, I’d highly recommend that one accumulate Mr. Gann’s books and courses from the original source of the reprints of that material.
The Jones Family has carefully preserved and made available many of WD Gann’s papers, charts, books and courses for many years after purchasing them from Mr. Gann’s partner Ed Lambert.
You can find their website at www.wdgann.com and I’d highly recommend in particular the purchase of ‘The WD GANN Technical Review‘ which is a collection of newsletters written by Billy Jones, the original purchaser of the Gann material.
Within that publication you’ll find ample selections of Gann’s work to gain a greater appreciation of the genius of Gann. You’ll also find many other reprints of Gann’s works for further study on the wdgann.com website.
NOTE: You need to know in advance however that most who read this material will not be able to extract the processes that made Gann’s trades successful and famous.
Those secrets reside outside of the material which only reflects those methods.
But, one should purchase and keep this information for reference purposes once one does start to learn the secrets hidden within Gann’s charts and papers.
I, for one, extend my sincere thanks to the Jones Family for preserving Gann’s works and making them available to new generations of researchers and traders. – George H.
