Catapult Research & Optuma’s GannTrader Tools
James Smith at Catapult Research has been using Optuma’s GannTrader tools since 2008, but Optuma began producing advanced technical analysis software in 1996. Optuma is regarded as one of the most complete TA platforms in the world, and the GannTrader edition includes faithful reproductions of many of the techniques that WD Gann used himself, including Gann Fans, Gann Squares, and the Square of 9.

Square Of Nine
No longer is the old wooden Square of Nine wheel needed. Optuma includes the world’s first fully customisable and interactive Square of Nine wheel, offering complete user control for quick and easy time and price target point identification.
Square Of Four
The Square of Four chart was one of the charts used by W.D. Gann in identifying market turning points. Optuma includes the Square of Four using the same graphical power as the Square of Nine chart.
Wheel Of 24
The wheel of 24 (Also known as the Circle of 24) is one of the most mystical charts used by W.D. Gann, and is referred to in his book “Tunnel Through the Air”. Used extensively by both intraday and end of day traders of Gann theory, Optuma offers full user control over time settings, allowing for 24 hour and calendar year settings.
Another chart used extensively by W.D. Gann is included in Optuma. The Hexagon chart has been studied and documented in detail by many authorities on the subject of Gann. Now these studies can be easily examined with the power and speed of Optuma.
