“Time is the most important factor” This is what the master trader Gann said.

One trader once told me that you can not trade a market unless you know  where it is going. W. D. Gann was able to forecast time cycles with amazing accuracy. This ARTICLE tells you how he did most of it. W. D. Gann believed that the future is but a repetition of the past. There are no new things under the sun. By studying the past one can forecast future cycles of the market.

The following are the master cycles of the market. Study them carefully, they are the secret to all markets. Study them carefully.

The 1 Year and Under Cycle
The cycles under one year are all based on the circle. The cycles inside of the year are the 45, 90, 120, 135, 144, 216, 240, 244, and 270. The important cycles are explained.

How to Use the Cycles
The most important thing you can do is to watch how the cycles are working. Compare the current cycles with those of the past. Go back to each of the cycle years and compare them to the current ones.

Using Daily Charts for forecasting
Daily price movements give the first change of trend in the markets.

SHIFTS IN CYCLES
There are sometimes shifts in the major cycles several days from anniversary high or low days. This is caused by progression of time.

Beginnings of time periods (changing of trends)
Watch the first and third week of the beginnings of these important times of the year.

Yearly – Watch the first and third week of January
Semi-Annual – Watch the first and third week of July
Quarterly – Watch the first and third of week of April and October.

You should also divide the year into divisions and watch the first 5 days of each division for a change of trend.

Comparisons of Years Ending with Same Digit
Go back over the years and overlay all years that end in the same digit.

Reoccurring Cycles
The market normally makes the same amount of moves from it’s peaks and troughs.

HARMONICS OF BEGINNING NUMBERS
The harmonics of the beginning number can be used to forecast.
