W. D. Gann discovered most methodologies used for trading the markets today. People just don’t realise these have been the discovery of the greatest researcher into market geometry and cycles.

The ten year cycle is not any different, operators like Edson Gould, and Larry Williams,( Larry’s going to jail, see , www.smh.com.au/news/NATIONAL/Stocks-guru-loses-extradition-challenge/2007/08/03/1185648106176.html )etc. copied some of Gann’s methods claiming them for their own.

They knew deep down that Gann was the greatest of them all, but couldn’t work out what he was doing. So to they put Gann down to market their own stuff.

The proof is that it’s coded in TTTA (written 1927) when he talks about his older brother dying in the earthquake of 18th April 1906, where the Uranus opposition Neptune conjuncts the Jupiter/Saturn in the great mutation chart of the 26th January 1842. The table in this article was part of his stock course long before these people were born. Gann was doing astrology back in 1908 when he made his greatest discovery.

Gann knew that what he was doing was far too complicated for the average person and that they were unlikely to put in the hours of study that he did, (including his son,) so he presented everything in numerical form. Because the numbers are rounded up or down it’s not exact every year, but good enough for a trend.  The 10 year cycle is not the largest cycle Gann was using. It’s not exact because, like all cycles, it will speed up and slow down depending where in the cycle they are.
The 10 year cycle comes from astrology, so I will reveal where it comes from and it’s up to you to do the work and test these things. There is no 10 year cycle; it comes from half the 20 year cycle which is the conjunction of Jupiter (12 year cycle) and Saturn (30 year cycle).This is Gann’s 20 year cycle which is just under 20 years in length. The synodic cycle of 20 years tells us roughly how much time it takes for Jupiter and Saturn to appear at the same longitude in the sky.
Gann stated a number of quotes, “You only need to know one thing, the correct starting point,” and “The cause is known long before the effect takes place” also said in TTTA “it not my aim to explain the cause of cycles “
Gann had these cycles on his wheat charts, but also had these and larger cycles from the 1500s on his wall chart.
