Gann placed the geometric angles on important tops, bottoms to indicate the trend of the market. These geometric angles accurately measure space, time, volume and price. The angles to draw on these tops and bottoms are the 1×8, 1×4, 1×3, 1×2, 3×4, 2/3, 1×1, 4×3, 3×2, 2×1, 3×1, 4×1 and 8×1. See Exhibit 20.1. These angles determine all important tops and bottoms. These angles drawn on a chart divide time and price into proportionate parts.
In the first chapter of book Techniques of an Astrotrader, we went over the basics as far as how the solar system can be represented in an astrologer’s wheel. In addition to having a degree value telling us what part of the sky a planet falls in, we also have a measurement telling us how far above or below the celestial equator the planet is. This is called the declination of a planet. So not only do planets move around us, they also move above and below us in their journey around the Sun.
If you want to gain the full astro-trading advantage as you engage with the markets, it’s vital that you look not only at the role that Mercury plays in the markets you are trading, but also at the way that Mercury functions in your own individual horoscope.
If you’re a reasonably accomplished astrologer yourself, you probably have the necessary skills and experience to look at Mercury’s role in your natal chart as a source of insight into the financial attitudes and trading strategies are most appropriate for you. If that’s the case, you can use the information in this chapter to provide you with some guidelines for a Mercury-based analysis of the trading potentials revealed by your natal horoscope.
Commodities and futures: the optimal use of leverage. Incorporating Candlestick signals into commodities and futures trading is of vital impor-tance. Knowing when and where the shift occurs in bullish and bearish sen-timent for leveraged investment vehicles is essential for successful trading. To foresee the potential change in price direction produces outstanding trad-ing profits. This is not pie-in-the-sky rhetoric. The Candlestick methodol-ogy was developed for the purpose of exploiting profits from commodities trading. Four hundred years of proven results came about through trading rice. Putting the signals to use in fast-reacting markets is not new for Candlestick analysis. It is probably safe to say that Candlestick analysis is the oldest technical trading method in the history of investment markets. Its use has delivered unrivaled results for the Japanese rice trading houses for centuries. It is the ideal method for increasing profits on its own merits or for being overlaid onto existing successful trading programs. The combi-nation of Candlestick reversal signals is the perfect complement to existing proven trading programs. Overlaying the two methods can be a useful fil-tering process for reducing and/or eliminating bad trades.
Over the years the question of whether the Andrews lines and rules can be used in conjunction with Elliott wave to locate the popular third wave has come up several times. Third waves are popular with Elliott wavers because they often result in long and strong moves. In this article you will see that it is possible and that using the earlier – 1970 era Andrews rules (verses the stuff on the web) makes it much easier. We will examine the two stock trades that were written about, before the orders were placed, in the Andrews Email group this year.

The great Masters, the writers of the Scriptures, Talmud, Koran, Confucius, Buddha, Cicero, Livy, as well as Shakespeare, Goethe, Nietzsche and others (except Luther) propound in their writings nothing but ways and means to forecast future events. All these writings are in “Code Form” so that the public can’t understand a word. They study “the surface” and like it. They eat the shell. With this book on hand you may try for the nut proper. All you will have to do is to substitute various motions of the planets given here for the names found in these books. After a while you can actually see how these persons in the stories “wander around” through the Zodiac. Yes, there were many before us, who know the laws and knew them well! They were able to fool the public several thousand years already and this work should throw some light into their stories.
The Resistance Levels given below are based upon natural law and can be applied to the measurement of both Time and Space. Around these points stocks meet resistance going up or down or traveling the same number of points from a top to a bottom. Tops and bottoms of major and minor movements come out on these Resistance Levels.
Each time I have written a book. this eing my third, I always remember one of my first teachers in the art of speculation. Dave Nelson was an old time trader when I first met him in 1971 and he remained one of my closest friends and confidants until his death. He once told me that the market will always tell you where it is going to go and usually how fast it will make the trip.
Now, will turn from an examination of the general principles of the Law Of Vibration, as discerned from Gann’s interview to the “Ticker And Investment Digest,” to an examination of the key steps in its practical application. These key steps in the practical application of Gann’s Law Of Vibration are as follows.
1. Identify the point in time that marks the start of an uptrend or downtrend. This can be achieved by examining the daily, weekly or monthly price chart of the stock or commodity.
The principles of Gann’s Law Of Vibration, as discerned from his interview of December 1909 to the “Ticker And Investment Digest” are as follows.
1. Stocks and commodities (and everything else on earth) vibrate. Moreover, vibration provides a comprehensive explanation of price movement in financial markets.
Vibration is fundamental; nothing is exempt from this law; it is universal, therefore applicable to every class of phenomena on the globe…. After years of patient study I have proven to my entire satisfaction, as well as dem-onstrated to others, that vibration explains every possible phase and condition of the market” (Ticker interview).
