Gann Emblem is basically a Forecasting Tool Which Forecast the Future Reversal dates .Gann Said Within a Circle is a square and a Triangle and this aspects are related to Astrology , Where we take Solar Degrees Into Consideration – But as in astrology Specific Zodiac Signs Are Related to individual person ( What we Called the Ruling Planet of the Individual ) – same laws Apply in stock market – For each Specific Stock ,Index or Commodity they have their Individual Ruling Planet and Zodiac Signs.
First, Gann said in his writing , ‘There are three important points that we can prove with mathematics or geometry: the circle, the square and the triangle. After I have made the square, I can draw a circle in it using the same diameter and with different squares produce the triangle and the square in the circle.” It is not my intention to go into the construction of squares in this article, but to throw some light on the emblem.
The ﬁrst thing we must realize is that any cycle is a circle. They are just spelled a different way. They go around and around and so keep reappearing. The circle we will deal with is the calendar year. To get things working, you need a calendar year in the form of a circle. I commonly use the astrological circle calendars as they are readily available. I should be on commission for the number I have bought and recommended to people.
Now, we have our calendar year going around the circle. The ﬁrst thing to know is that the year should be divided into two sections between the autumn and spring equinox. Gann always did this. This is essential in Pyramid time. Let’s look at the S&P Futures Contract. We place the point of the emblem on the date of last year’s high, September 18, 1987. Remember, when looking for highs, go to the points of the square. The approximate dates are December 18, March 20 (autumn equinox) and June 19. The points of the triangle give us January 18 and May 18.
Now for the lows. We place the point of the emblem on the low of November 11, 1987,and what do we get? The lows of February 10, May 12 and August 11. See how all this looks on your daily bar chart. The dates on the triangle of March 11 and July 12 gave us nothing, which prove the S&P Futures Contract is working stronger in squares than angles. That’s good to know when you are working out price.
The degrees of the year are arrived at by dividing a year into 360 segments instead of 365.25 days. Now it is not as simple as a straight division of time but more a division of seasons resulting in four quarters of approximately 87, 92, 92 and 95 days, each representing 90 degrees. The year is divided into two sections by the autumn and spring equinox. I made up a circular calculator which gives me the whole year by degrees as Gann did in his circular charts. A simple way is to run the days in line across a chart of approximately 90 squares and one sees then graphically how the tops and bottoms conform. I call this a 90 degree chart and it is handy in my trading.
