Gann\'s trading methods .....

Hi folks,

Recently, there was an article in traders'
edge about astrotrading and financial
astrology and almost daily, we get emails
asking where to get started on the basics
of this craft.

There's many books on the subject, but
a good introduction is probably:

"Investing by the Stars"
by Henry Weingarten
Founder of Astrologers Fund in USA.

Then, if you want to go further, read
any works by Gann for the mechanical
systems he researched and Sepharial's
works for a background in the astrology,
that Gann also used.

Most important of Sepharial's work may be:

"Cosmic Symbolism"

"Kabala of Numbers" Parts 1 & 2

"Vibration" by Mrs L Dow-Balliett and
"The Pythagorean Sourcebook" will also
help to understand the simple maths
involved in understanding Pythagorean
theory of "Harmony of the Spheres".

Finally, decode Gann's 1927 novel
"Tunnel thru the Air", including the
association and interpretations of
150+ Bible references that he used,
in TTTTA.

Gann also had his own reading list, that
is readily available on the web.

Be warned, this astrostuff is addictive and
can be VERY time consuming, but there
is no better tool available to evaluate
the TIME AXIS on our charts.

happy days

Hi folks,

Would just like to add a few comments here to clarify
exactly how astrotraders use our solar system and its
relationship to the markets.

As silly as it may sound to the skeptix, many fund
managers use financial astrology for their market
timing, though most of the cannot admit it, due to
the ridicule it would bring down on them .....

..... it was NO DIFFERENT in Gann's day and that was
the reason why he coded his astrotrading methods into
his 1927 novel, Tunnel thru the Air.

But, things are now changing in the marketplace:

Henry Weingarten set up the Astrologers Fund
on 02 May 1988 and has been a most transparent
fund manager making use of planetary cycles for
trading.

He also wrote a book " Investing by the Stars ... Using
Astrology in Financial Markets" ISBN 0-07-068999-7


----

Really, financial astrology is something of a misnomer
and probably financial astronomy would be a more correct
term, as we are more concerned with the planetary cycles
and their mathematical relationships with each other,
rather than the interpretive stance of astrology.

For convenience, we have borrowed astrologers' charts
and tables, as they present us with an easy graphical
account of what is happening in the heavens above.

-----

Technically, our aim is to evaulate the time axis on our
price charts, using the oldest and most accurate clock
known to mankind ..... the cosmic clock.

Marketwise, this is the astrotrader's technical approach:

PRICE axis is always VARIABLE, but our TIME axis is
always CONSTANT and therefore easier to analyze.

If we use TIME as the median, then PRICE will most often
be moving either ahead of TIME or behind TIME, similar
to deviations from a mean, shown by the action of a
sine wave ~~~~~~~~~~ or price action in the markets.

We can see this action on the price charts, as making
rounding-bottoms and tops TA patterns and often the
price will fail at the median (or pivot) as it lifts off a
rounding-bottom (for example).

Length of such waves or cycles cn often be correlated
directly to planetary movements and/or events.

-----

Up front, planets have NO INFLUENCE on the markets,
they are just bits of rock orbiting in space, at very
predictable rates of circular movement, that can be
used for timing of many events, even the markets.

Observations and RECORDING of events on earth,
when each planetary event occurs in the heavens
have been progressing for THOUSANDS of years,
so from such history, we can often delineate
earthbound events, with some accuracy.

This is compared to the relatively short time, that
can be assigned to modern financial markets .....
..... some 200 years, at most.

-----

This is the same cosmic clock used for launching
rockets and satellites, timing their entries, exits
and manoeuvres with exquisite accuracy.

..... and best of all, NO MAN can interfere with
this timing device ..... not even GW Bush !~!

-----
Here's an exercise that may be interesting for
the skeptics ..... today, some atroanalysis has
been posted for SHA, an Aussie IPO, due to
list next week.

Just follow the key dates and use them to confirm
your regular FA/TA for SHA, in the months ahead.

No, those key dates will not ALL bring expected
SHA news/ moves, but they WILL help to build a
better overview of the stock.

Try it, it will cost you NOTHING, except for a
little TIME ..... smile.gif

Hope this helps a bit.

have a great day

Hi folks,

This article on cycles showed up in the inbox, today:

http://news.goldseek.com/UnionSecurities/1151278300.php

=====

Note:

From an astrotrading perspective, the 60-year Kondratieff
time cycle was also Gann's Master Time Cycle, but more
importantly, the 60-year cycle represents:

5 x Jupiter orbits through the zodiac.

2 x Saturn orbits through the zodiac.

1 x base unit for Chinese lunar calendar = ???

It is the aspects between Jupiter (great expander)
and Saturn (great contractor) that often mark major
swings in the markets ..... and right now, we are
seeing a 90^ square (negative) aspect, between
Jupiter and Saturn.

Next comparable negative Jupiter/Saturn aspect, will
be the Jupiter/Saturn oppositions in mid-May and
mid-August, in 2010.

happy days

..... holding CUE/STO ... ???

Hi folks,

In an earlier part of this thread, we discussed Gann's
application of Sepharial's geodetic equivalents and
their relationship to natural world events, that may
affect the markets. In particular, we looked at the
possibility of a volcanic eruption in the giant caldera,
located in Java and it is now a reality, albeit much
later than previously anticipated.


While we saw Mt. Merapi erupt on 17-19 May 2006, with
small lava flows and evacuations, it did not erupt violently.

-----

As previously posted here, we will be also watching, around
24 May 2006, with particular reference to STO/CUE operations,
just south of Madura Island, Indonesia.

Now, maybe there's no connection at all between the Merapi
eruption and STO's JeruK-3 operations, but the same indicators
have been used, as they are moving eastward, very slowly.

Will post more about this in the CUE and STO forum threads,
as there's some negative cycles from February and March 2006,
currently being repeated ..... smile.gif

----

Other key dates for our XJO should be around 07-08 June 2006.

Just as our last target date in April, came in with another terrorist
attack, so too is our June 2006 target projected from the Bali
bombings, in October 2002.

Let's see how this lot unfolds.

happy days

..... just a reminder for fellow SPI traders.

Sometimes, days like today offer the chance to buy on the
open, if the SPI is at an extreme spread from the physical,
then sell on the close ..... one trade, all day !~!

happy days

yogi

P.S. ..... due to data problems on this end, this will
not be a trade for us, today.

Hi Bello,

..... that must have been mental telepathy, as
we should add this, about this week's trading:

17052006 will probably see another negative
day for the DOW, but next day be alert for
a more positive day on XJO, Thursday 18052006.

happy trading

Hi Yogi, I was at a meeting last Tuesday and the bloke running the course was an adherent of Gann and he picked the 17th of this month, using Gann methodology, as the low point and recommended his clients wait to buy on that date. I went along to listen but not to buy his software, but I may have to rethink that, lol.
