This thread is slowly coming to an end. Within the next one or two weeks I will post real trades taken with real money. BUT...before I do that I wanted to post a little more from my 9 pages on Gann. Some of the links no longer work and some of the people I mention are now dead. Dr. Hank Pruden of Golden Gate University and John Bedini have both died since I started writing this paper. The youtube links from Talking to Leedskalin all got taken down. What I find interesting is that Boscovich based his physics on Pythagoras which is one of Gann's biggest influences.
WHY ISN’T GANN TAUGHT IN SCHOOL (SCIENCE VEIWPOINT)?
I studied Finance at UNLV. Most of what is taught is from the fundamental perspective.
“The biggest part of fundamental analysis involves delving into the financial statements. Also known as quantitative analysis, this involves looking at revenue, expenses, assets, liabilities and all the other financial aspects of a company. Fundamental analysts look at this information to gain insight on a company's future performance. A good part of this tutorial will be spent learning about the balance sheet, income statement, cash flow statement and how they all fit together.”
(The above is taken directly from Investopedia)
Traditional technical analysis is the study of bar charts. In looking for patterns, a technical analyst will try to use the past to predict the future. From my experience, it is a 50-50 proposition that any given trade will work out. BUT…if you use Gann analysis and approach the chart from a science perspective (physics, electrical engineering and chemistry) the outcome is quite different.
I sent Roger Anderton some information about Gann. The follow quote is taken from his e-mail. “Gann is very interesting. It sounds like he was dealing with physics around at his time of ideas similar to Boscovich.” This was the first time I got a response from someone in the scientific community that confirmed that Gann was probably on to something. When you ask someone with a finance background about Gann they assume he is a charlatan because his analysis is completely separate discipline of which they know nothing about. See Pythagoras3 and Gann11 screenshots attached to this e-mail.

HOW DID YOU KNOW GANN WASN’T A FRAUD (FINANCE VIEWPOINT)?
Most people can’t figure out how Gann was able to accomplish what he did so it is easier to label him as a fraud. Before I started this long and expensive journey I had to establish providence that Gann was real. This was deceptively easy but you can’t overlook the obvious. Who interviewed Gann for his famous 1909 Ticker Digest Article? Richard D. Wyckoff.
He was a legitimate heavyweight in the world of finance. It is doubtful that Gann could have fooled him. I have had correspondence with Dr. Hank Pruden of Golden Gate University who specializes in teaching the Wyckoff method of trading.
HOW DID YOU FIGURE OUT HIS MATERIAL?
The big clue was what was found in Gann’s library after his death. The only books on trading were the ones he authored. All the other books in his library were science based. Gann had a suggested reading list of 80 books to help people understand his courses. The link below includes 21 of them.

In addition, Gann was a Free Mason who wrote in riddles, especially on the topics of the Bible and astrology. Once people who have a finance background realize this fact, they stop researching Gann. I did not read the 80 books. Instead I did a google search on causality and the law of vibration (from the 1909 article). This led to Royal Raymond Rife (medicine) and Nikola Tesla (electrical engineering). By researching their material I was able to figure out Gann. It is truly natural law that is applicable to all disciplines of science.
To the best of my knowledge no one has ever made the comparison to W.D. Gann, Ed Leedskalnin and the Bible. If you watched the above videos on astro-theology they clearly illustrate hidden meanings in the text. Similar hidden meanings can be found in W.D. Gann’s books especially “The Tunnel Thru the Air.” In addition, there is another book Gann authored “The Magic Word” which also has hidden bible references.

Ed Leedskalnin single handedly built Coral Castle and was either a Freemason, like Gann, or was at least mentored by one. There are several hidden meanings in Ed’s writings and built into Coral Castle itself.

The most interesting observation that I heard was from free energy pioneer John Bedini. He speculated that Ed’s “sweet sixteen” was not a girl but a wheel with 16 spokes. This wheel would have angles between the spokes at 22.5 degrees. (The tilt of the Earth’s axis is approximately 23 degrees.)
He built his Ferris wheel based on these angles!!!
