# I want to understand GANN'"s work but find it difficult to understand it in the first place. Pls guide and suggest some good readings to understand him better

W.D.Gann is the father of swing trading concept.
He imagined the entire universe
as geometry. The simplest fact is earth takes 365 days to revolve around the sun. It
travels in a particular path without any deviation since millions of years. This is
why we are in a position to predict the summer, winter, and spring seasons. Think
in a different way. If this practical and authentic formula of the universe would
have not been placed in consistence geometry then you must not be in a position to
predict the future seasonal changes.
W.D.Gann has said that the price of the commodity or the financial instrument is a
number and each number in this universe is associated with other numbers
through some geometrical relation. He arranges the natural numbers 1, 2, 3…In
different geometrical figures circle, triangle, and rectangle and found the common
geometrical relations. Based on this relation we can predict the future price and
time in an authentic way.
This is the one way of forecasting the future price of a
stock or commodity however I do not offer any guarantee of success.
