GANN SECRET INDIA
It is a little known fact that W. D. Gann went to India and studied Indian Sidereal Astrology. In his notebooks we find sketches of astrological symbols on his charts; and in his memoirs, he discusses his journey to India. In fact, the famous Gann wheel was first used by tea merchants in seventeenth century India.
Gann also discussed the importance of using the starting date of when the first futures contract for a commodity began trading for predicting the future of that commodity. To my knowledge, there are very few individuals who use these starting dates to successfully time the markets even though my experience in using Indian Sidereal astrology has shown that these charts are invaluable. If one can verify the starting time and date of the first futures contract for a commodity, and run an Indian Sidereal natal chart from it, then that chart can provide absolutely valid information for predicting, quantifying, and labeling the major and minor cycles that ultimately govern the major trends in the markets.
Below is a brief introduction to Indian Sidereal Astrology how I became acquainted with it. The three main sections are:
–an overview of the Vimsottari Dasha system (which I will subsequently refer to as Indian time cycles).
–the practical application of using Indian time cycles for predicting the major movements and changes in those movement in the stock market.
–and, a forecast for the future of the stock market based on Indian astrological time cycles.
Draw angles from All highs and lows, Major highs and lows, Back 360 highs and lows andUser Selected highs and lows. Cycle counts of Selected angles are included in printouts.
Back 360 angles are multiples of 360 time units (45, 60, or 72) from the cursor’s position.
Individually enable or disable the 1×1, 2×1, 3×1, 4×1, 8×1, 1×2, 1×3, 1×4,1×8 angles. The rate of rise of the 1×1 angle can be set by the user.
The slope of the angles is automatically adjusted for changes in the chart’sprice scale so that the 1×1 relationship is maintained.
Individually enable or disable the up-trend, downtrend, up from lows, down from highs,
angles from lows, highs or zero
Natural squares of 120, 360, 144, 52, 60, 72, 180, 90 are created with a single hit of the number keys 2 through 9. Key 1 is reserved for a user defined “hot” square.
Squares of the highs, lows or ranges can be created with a single keystroke. Up to 5 squares can be saved with each file setup.
Unlimited when combined with batch mode.
Individually enable or disable the 1×1, 2×1, 3×1, 4×1, 8×1, 1×2, 1×3, 1×4, 1×8 angles, Time Angles, Time Divisions, Price divisions inside the square.
Division of the range and “7 times the base” can be converted into a square of the range with a single keystroke.
Print or display planet earth or sun views of longitude converted to price following Gann’s methods. The longitude to price conversion factor can be set by the user.
Individually enable or disable each planet’s plot and any of the following planet aspects: 5/8°, 7½°, 11¼°, 15°, 22½°, 30°, 36°, 40°, 45°, 60°, 72°, 90°, 120°, 180°, 360° plus the zodiac sign divisions.
The longitude and aspect distances for the date of the cursor are displayed for exact measurements
Gann Swing Charts:
New is Gann’s Trend Line Indicator and Main Trend Indicator.
The Trend Line Indicator is a price indicator.
The trend line follows the high or low price when the previous swing is broken by a certain number of points. The user can set this trigger point.
The Main Trend Indicator requires that the market make higher highs or lower lows for a certain number of days before the line is moved up or down.
Gann usually used 3 days in his work, but this value is also user defined.
With these indicators Gann was looking for an “overbalance” of price or time.
For example, if a market goes up for 4 days, reacts for 2 and goes up 4 days and then reacts for 3 or more, Gann would say there was an overbalance of time since the market has more down days than before.
This would be an indication of a possible change of trend. Ganntrader adds a “Shade Swings” feature that gives a quick visual indication by the change in the widths and heights of the boxes surrounding the swing lines. Also, if both the Main Trend and Trend Line Indicators are on the screen at once, the boxes change to green on those periods when both indicators are moving in the same direction.
