W. D. Gann’s words on the Master “12” chart

In this article we will explore the Square of 12 chart that W. D. Gann used quite often. He called it a MASTER “12” chart. W. D. Gann does leave us some clues as to his thinking about some of the words he uses. The word “Master” refers to Jupiter or god of the gods. “12” refers to the number of years Jupiter revolves around the sun which is 12 years.

On a point of interest, if you read W. D. Gann’s texts or are already familiar with his works he refers to a certain “Master Time Factor”. This is the Jupiter-Saturn cycle as Saturn’s name is Chronos or “time”.

I stray a little, but getting back on topic, we will briefly explore the square of 12 as applied to the S&P 500. First let’s look at Gann’s words with regards to this beautiful square:

“The MASTER CHART is the Square of “12 ” or 12 x 12, making the first square end at 144. The Second Square of “12” ends at 288, the Third Square of “12” at 432; and the Fourth Square at 576, which will cover most anything that you want, but you can make  up as many more squares as you need.

 This chart may be used and applied to anything – TIME, SPACE, PRICE OR VOLUME, the number of points up or down; days, weeks, months and years. On Square No. 1, which runs from 1 to 144, I have drawn the finer angles to show the grand-center or strongest resistance point in each minor square. The minor centers, which are the strongest for minor tops and bottoms are 14, 17, 20, 23, 50, 53, 56, 59, 86, 89, 92, 95, 122, 125, 128, 131.

The major center is where the strongest resistance is met.  These numbers are 66, 67, 78 and 79. Stocks going up or coming down to these prices will meet with stubborn resistance. The next strong angle is the 45°, and the numbers of greatest resistance on it are 14, 27, 40, 53, 66, 79, 92, 105, 118, 151, and 144. The other diagonal 45° angle from 12 is equally strong. The numbers are 12, 23, 34, 45, 56, 67, 78, 89, 100, 111, 122, and 133.

The numbers which are cut by the 45° angles through the center of each of the one 1/4 squares are next in strength.  These numbers are 7, 20, 33, 46, 59, 72, 61, 50, 39, 28, 17, and 6, and on the other side of the Square, after you pass the half-way point, these numbers are 73, 96, 99, 112, 125, 138, 139, 128, 117, 106, 95 and 84.

The numbers at the tops and bottoms of the squares are important prices for important tops and bottoms to be made because they are opposition numbers and are equal to the half-way point. These numbers for Square No.1 are 1, 13, 25, 37, 49, 61, 73, 85, 97, 109, 121, 133. The top numbers are 12, 24, 36, 48, 60, 72, 84, 96, 108, 120, 132, and 144. These are very important to measure time in days, weeks, months and years. 

The opposition angle, which runs through the center of the Square, from east to west, equally dividing it, is one of the very strong angles because it equals one-half. Any stock moving up or down and reaching these prices will meet with any resistance and make tops or bottoms. These numbers are 6, 7, 18, 19, 30, 31, 42, 43, 54, 55, 66, 67, 78, 79, 90, 91, 102, 103, 114, 115, 126, 127, 138, 139.

Remember, when anything has moved three sections over from the beginning, it reaches the square of its own place, which is the first strong resistance. When it has moved six sections over it reaches the opposition, or what equals the half-way point of its own place and meets still stronger resistance. Moving over nine places or sections from its own place, it reaches the 3/4 point, another square. The 8th and 9th sections are the strongest and hardest points to pass because this is the “death” zone. The next and still stronger is the 12th section or column which ends at 144. Anything getting into this section meets the strongest resistance but once it moves out of the square and gets as much as 3 points into Square 2, that is, making 147, will indicate much higher. But after reaching this, it should not drop back to 141 or 3 points into Square 1. When a stock gets into the Second Square of “12”, it has faster moves, and when the time or number of months from any bottom or top moves into the Second Square, it is an indication of faster moves, both up and down. 

Apply the same rule to the 3rd, 4th, 5th and 6th Squares. In the 3rd and 4th squares of the Master “12”, you will find that most of the big bull and bear campaigns culminate, when measured by months, which determines the division, according to time. All the other rules given you to apply to Space movements, angles and time, can be used with the Master “12” tables.”

Nifty Analysis – Square Of 12

When a stock gets into the Second Square of “12”, it has faster moves. When the time or number of months from any bottom or top moves into the Second Square, it is an indication of faster moves, both up and down.

On 29th Feb 2016, using a scale of 1 Gann point to 40 SPX Points, the Nifty 50 index made a low at 6825 which is 170.5 1 Gann point is equivalent to 1 calendar month or 1 degree of heliocentric Saturn movement as I’ve explained in my book WD Gann Secrets . Rounding up this number would bring the value to 171 which is the beginning of the second square of 12. The observer would be quick to recognize that the Nifty swings and volatility has indeed been wide reaching these past two years.

on 23 March 2018, the Nifty  highest point reached was 9951 which is 249 points. The degree of 249 is a critical one as 249 if expressed in months is equivalent to 20 years, which is a major time cycle relating to the Jupiter-Saturn synodic cycle.

In addition, 240 points in the second square of 12 is the last number in the 8th zone. Therefore, should the stock reach 241 or 9640, it would begin its foray into the 9th zone of the square of 12. Recall Gann mentioned that the 8th and 9th sections are the strongest and hardest points to pass because this is the “death” zone.

We can expect a pull back from the 9th zone of the second square of 12. The question then is how big of a pull-back can we expect?

243 or 9720 is a potential area where the 45-degree angle cuts through the center of the minor square. It is also 11/16 of 144. 246 or 9840 is also possible as it’s the half point in the 9th zone of the square of 12. Regardless, it is extremely unlikely that the Nifty50 can get through the 9th zone i.e. 1080 without having a significant reaction in the next few weeks. By significant I mean at least a 288 point or 18 Gann point reaction. Time period would be approximately 3 weeks from the new moon of January 2018.

In my book The W.D Gann Secret , I mentioned clearly how to derive the vibration of each stock point to 1 Gann point (where 1 Gann point is equivalent to 1 calendar month or 1 degree of Heliocentric Saturn movement).

The modified square of 12 is shown in the picture below. It clearly shows the Gann points of the second square of 12 and the corresponding SPX value. This is applicable for Nifty 50 as the vibration is specific to the Nifty  i.e. 1 point to 40 SPX Points.
