Trading Legends Edition: William Delbert Gann’s 12 Trading Rules, Ep #68

William Delbert Gann was one of the most colorful traders in history. He was a trader, an educator, and an author. He believed that the market would always repeat—that everything would happen again and again. He used geometry, ancient mathematics, the Bible, and even astrology to predict events in the financial markets. 

Gann wrote a book called “How to Make Profits Trading Commodities” in which he talked about planetary combinations with different commodities. There were astrological patterns that would match up with the charts. It seems purely absurd. But Gann impacted a lot of people with what he’s written. His strategies are effective and widely used nearly a century after his death! He is considered a founder of modern-day technical analysis. What can we learn from him?
