“We use three figures in geometry, the circle, the square and the triangle. We get the square and triangle points of a circle to determine points of time, price and space resistance. We use the circle of 360 degrees to measure time and price.“
There are 360 degrees in a circle, no matter how large or small the circle may be. Certain numbers of these degrees and angles are of vast importance and indicate when important tops and bottoms occur on stocks and commodities, as well as denote important resistance levels.
The esoteric meaning behind this statement is as follows:There are 360 degrees in any circle, the largest of which is the great circle of the heavens, or the zodiac. Certain points on this zodiac (identified by a precise number of degrees) are very important because they relate to specific stocks and to specific commodity markets.
Consequently the angles between a planet and these specific points on the zodiac and also the angles between two planets are very important because they signify tops and bottoms in the stock and commodity markets. Two important angles (or “aspects”, as they are called in astrology) are the square (or 90 degrees) and the triune (or 120 degrees). Since the angles between a planet and a particular point on the zodiac or between two planets can be calculated years in advance, stock and commodity markets can in principle be forecast years in advance.
It is also important to note that the above quotation by Gann was in the introduction to his chapter on forecasting by means of “Gann angles”; i.e. forecasting by using the 1 X 1, 2 X 1, 4 X 1, etc. trend lines from important tops and bottoms on price charts. Therefore the very important implication here is that (as the chapter title suggests) the basis of Gann’s forecasting method was not merely the geometrical “Gann angles” drawn on a price chart, but (more fundamentally) the geometrical angles between planets and the zodiac (which is of course astrology).
In summary therefore, Gann is suggesting that the angles between the planets and the zodiac in the heavens (i.e. astrological influences) cause the particular angle of a trend line on a price chart, and this is the real basis of his forecasting method. 因此总得来说，江恩暗示了太空中行星和黄道之间的角度（例如：占星学方面的影响）是导致在价格图表上形成一些独特角度的趋势线的原因，而这正是他预测方法的真实基础。
