Mid-year review ... Gann, the messenger ...

|We may never be able to prove the
validity of the stories about W D Gann's
trading ability, as there has been so
much rubbish posted about this genius of
However, with the decoding of the
astrological messages in Gann's 1927
novel, "Tunnel thru the Air", we now
know that the basis of his trading
methods lay in the TIME cycles of the
planets above ... the cosmic clock.
Mid-year ... time to review our trading
again and take a different focus going
In our mid-year review, there's a few
stocks that we have been lucky enough to
identify as BIG winners, this year.
More importantly, we were able to
identify these trades VERY early in the
trend, using some SIMPLE and PRACTICAL
One of these stocks is featured in my
ebook, "Cardinal Astrographs ... easy
TIM ... Timbercorp traded on the day of
the low at 28.5 cents on 31072001. Since
then, we have traded this stock
profitably, using some EASY astrotools
that predicted the 11th April 2003
breakout, MONTHS in advance !~!
Since April, TIM has gained 50 cents to
That's a 94% gain on funds invested in
the past 3 months .....
..... or for the "buy and hold" crowd,
that's a 261% increase on funds invested,
since July 2001.
That's a good return for any trader or
investor and it was all done, using basic
financial astrology (and some smoke and
mirrors ... lol).
Just in case you thought that TIM trade
in 2003 was a fluke, that particular
trade and forecast was presented to a
congress of international business
astrologers in 2001, for future
It was also presented in detail on the
support forum for my CAETT ebook on
market timing ...
..... and also on other forums,like this
one, with less astroanalysis, as a likely
Just check back through the archives for
past threads and messages on TIM.
OK ... that was a small Aussie timber
So, you have still have some doubts about
using astroanalysis in the stockmarket.
Let's look at an Aussie oiler now ... one of
many that we have traded in the past.
AYO - Amity Oil ... as with TIM, our trades
and astroanalysis have been well documented,
on many forums.
In October 2002, we identified the low in AYO,
by using some SIMPLE astrotools, that were
combined with conventional TA to enter this
trade. AYO was 39 cents on the Neptune direct
station ..... 22102002.
Ninety days later, on 22012003, AYO made a high
at 81 cents (9 squared), just before a 62% pull
-back to test the lows.
Using our astrotrading techniques, we had already
taken profits about 74% ROI out of a possible
107% ROI in that first leg up ... not perfect,
but still a good return in just 3 months.
Since the liftoff from the pullback low, on
13032003, AYO advanced to our target at 1.13
(1.14 high on 30052003) ..... again, even
conservative traders were able to use our
exit signal to take a big chunk out of the
possible 107% ROI, in less than 90 days !~!
AYO has not been able to breach 1.18, since
we took our last profits.
So, looking forward, we would like to see
AYO pullback and test support between 1.07
and 1.13, before shooting for the next
target at about 1.37 .....
Longer term investors, with a "buy and hold"
strategy had the opportunity to see an entry
confirmed in October 2002, with a subsequent
rally to its current levels ... that was an
opportunity to see an ROI of 202%, in less
than 9 months ... !~!
..... and who says you can't make money with
Last year's xmas present for US traders from
this forum was a detailed analysis on MSFT,
a software company ..... the biggest.
Again, using SIMPLE astrading techniques, we
identified the December 2002 low, that would
see MSFT rally $5.oo, over the next couple
of weeks, into January 2003.
That analysis is still posted at:
..... and the list goes on ... NXS, ARQ,
CUE, TAP, DLS, MPO, NVS, YDR, XJO and more.
No, not all our trades were winners, but with
a win/loss ratio of better than 3:1, we can
see that our astroanalysis is a great booster
in making more profitable trades.
We can see from the examples above, that our
astrotools are flexible enough to be used in a
broad cross-section of markets.
Looking ahead for the 2nd half of 2003, we
will shift our focus to the commodities
markets and show how our astrotools can
perform in the futures markets.
Specifically, we will look at those markets
that W D Gann traded.
This is to demonstrate, that those astrotools,
hidden in "Tunnel thru the Air", work just the
same in today's markets, as they did in the
For those holding Myles Wilson Walker's
"Supertiming" ..... as good as it was, believe
this, he only just scratched the surface with
his work ... !~!
In the near future, it will be shown how to
decode the astrological messages, that Gann
so cleverly hid away in his work.
Now, we will hear the cries from many quarters.
Cries from the churches, denying the existance
of astrology in the bible and its links and to
current world affairs ..... you will recognise
these "Christians", as they will be those people
quoting the bible at us, right or wrong .....
... well, we have some news for you !~!
Mark these words and note the following date:
December 30th, 2006
Ancient texts, like the bible, all have a their
own cyclical season and over the next few years
we will see many of the astrological messages
contained in those texts, revealed.
By that date, much will be revealed to the
whole world, as Pluto is conjunct with the
(If you doubt the power of aspects to the
Galactic Centre, then take a look at my posts
on the recent Saturn/Galactic Centre opposition.)
Already, we have shown how world events can be
predicted on this forum, with the duration of
the Iraq war foretold, before the war even
started ... !~!
As amazing as that may seem, that was Gann's
astrotools in action ... and he was just a
messenger, taking the original astrological
methods, directly from the bible.
To some traders, that will be a revelation,
Cries from those with big egos and a vested
interest in keeping these astrotools under
wraps, for as long as possible.
..... egos that have NEVER traded, leave
out making a market call, yet they profess
to be "Gann experts" ..... promoting it all
as some huge secret, being held by sects,
like the Masons for example.
Instead, they tease the trading public, with
expensive historical THEORIES, but UNABLE to
prove such theories, with practical and current
trading examples .....
Using PRACTICAL and CURRENT trading examples
is the fastest way to learn astrotrading.
That's how my own books are presented, backed
up with brokers' documentation of the REAL
Cries too, from the unbelievers, asking for
It will take a while to convince them, as they
must evaluate the methods, as they are posted
here ..... IN ADVANCE of the trade being taken.
Just like AYO and TIM were examples of REAL
trades, posted IN ADVANCE.
Likewise, we will post some astroanalysis for
them, in the futures markets, in the months ahead.
Cries from those who want "something-for-nothing",
hoping to gain such information, without paying.
Sorry, this is free enterprise at its best and
this knowledge, is just another commodity to be
If you want to short circuit the learning process
and avoid the long tedious (and unproductive)
hours of searching for these astrological
answers, then you will gladly pay for this
To those "Gannsters", thinking about delving more
deeply into their trading hero's work, read these
To be fair, here's SOME WARNINGS - up front:
Before you get too keen about astro time
cycles and Gann's work .....
1) If you do NOT like simple maths and geometry,
then Gann's work (or mine) is not for you.
2) If you are looking for INSTANT trading answers
and software, then Gann's methods (or mine) are
NOT what you are seeking.
There was no computers around, when Gann wrote
"Tunnel thru the Air", nor was there any
computers available when some of the ancient
texts, like the bible and Oahspe were written.
Likewise, it does not take a computer program
to unravel these astrotools ..... just a lot
of "willingness" and DISCIPLINE to study.
Fortunately, today we DO have computers to
help us understand Gann's methods, mostly with
the graphics that relate directly to current
trades, like those winners described above.
3) Studying these methods will open up a new
realm of study that will last a LIFETIME,
as these time cycles can be used to anticipate
changes in all parts of our lives, not just
Ahead is a forgotten science of simple maths,
that is already being used in 14 countries,
across the globe. My astrotrading ebooks,
"Cardinal Astrographs ... easy trading tools"
is just the beginning !~!
If you DO NOT have the DISCIPLINE to STUDY
and APPLY these MANUAL methods, then please
invest your money elsewhere.
4) No library readers = no refunds available.
As shown with my previous ebooks, my policy
of delivering SIMPLE and PRACTICAL suggestions,
in a competitive format, gives traders good
Likewise, my new series of ebooks on astrotrading
will strive to give traders similar benefits.
Again, this will be a limited edition, built up
in sections, for progressive study of Gann's
astrological work and more importantly, how it
applies to the markets today.

astrotrading and the use of astrology, as a
superior market timing tool, in the commodities
and equities markets, then you have made the
