“I wanted to repeat many of Gann’s techniques in a charting application so traders like you and me who are not mathematicians could use the advanced trading techniques of Gann. Over the last decade, I’ve met with many of the greatest educators who use Gann techniques in their trading. What I’ve learnt from these experts is invaluable. I’ve applied that knowledge to create an incredibly advanced Gann charting application.”

Who is W.D Gann?

W.D. Gann (William Delbert Gann) was an American trader and financial analyst who lived in the late 19th and early 20th centuries. He is best known for his work in the stock and commodity markets. He developed a number of technical analysis tools and trading methods that are still used by traders today.

Gann was born in 1878 in Texas and began his career as a farmer before moving on to sell newspapers and cigars on a train. Gann’s interest in finance began while overhearing his customers regularly engage in conversations about the financial markets. After working for brokerages in New York, he made a name for himself by successfully predicting the 1907 market panic in stocks. Gann began his own firm in 1908. Around this time Gann made what some believe to be his biggest discovery—the Master Time Factor.

He quickly gained a reputation as a skilled trader and began to develop his own trading methods, which he called “Gann angles” and “Gann squares.” These methods are based on the idea that market movements can be predicted using geometric angles and ratios, and they involve a combination of technical analysis and astrology.

Gann was also known for his use of time cycles, which he believed could be used to predict market movements. He believed that certain market events, such as the high and low prices of a stock or commodity, could be predicted using time cycles. W.D. Gann published a number of books and courses on the subject.

Dedicated to studies and the expansion of his knowledge, Gann invested years reviewing records found in the Astor Library in New York, and in the British Museum of London, some going back as far as 1820. It’s from these observations Gann began working with natural cycles.
