Question about : GANN SQUARE - Help Please ?

I'm having a problem with navigating around a Gann square. Its
especially frustrating because it seems like the solution I am after
should be very simple and yet it is eluding me.

I have found online a number of sites that say that a certain method
will work and yet I have tried it and it clearly does not, or at least it
does not work entirely the way its claimed.

For example, this site, among many others ;

sacredscience dot com/ferrera/gannwheel dot htm

States the following (please see my continuation of my message after the below quotes ( " ) and ( .... ) ;

"Basically, if you want to move around the coordinates on the Gann
Wheel you take the number you are interested in ( such as the all
time High or Low price) take the square root of the number, then add
or subtract 2 from the root and resquare the result. Example: Lets
say that we are interested in the price 664 (which is in the vertical
column straight up from the center). The square root is 25.768 + 2 =
27.768^2 = 771 which is the number directly above 664 or one full
360 degree cycle out from center. If we subtracted 2 from the root
and re-squared the number (25.768-2= 23.768^2 = 565 ) we would
get 565 which is directly below 664 or one full 360 degree cycle in
towards center. Incorporating the Gann Emblem with this technique,
allows us to calculate coordinates that are

conjunct (360 = +/- 2 from the root),
opposition (180 = +/- 1 from root #),
trine (120= +/- .666) (240= +/- 1.333),
square (90 = +/- .5) (270= +/- 1.5)
sextile (60 = +/- .333) (300 = +/- 1.666).

This technique is extremely useful for finding coordinate squares on
the Gann Wheel that are making hard aspects to a previous position
on the wheel. Also, Gann believed that the numbers that connected
the square base of the pyramid (the 4 corners of the square, i.e.
corner #’s.) to the “gravity center” and also the numbers that ran
straight vertical and horizontal from the “gravity center” in the form
of a cross (cardinal numbers) were very important in balancing “Price
& Time” on the wheel."

So I tried all of the above, and the only part that worked was the
first one, the conjunct ;

conjunct (360 = +/- 2 from the root),

None of the others worked at all, and certainly not with consistency.

See attached graphic.

Basically what I want to do, is described in Figures (A,B,C) of the

Regardless of the number placed in the center of the square grid, Id
like to be able to go to any given square in a given grid and then
from that grid cell be able to orient in any angular direction outwards
and to any nth square.

I can do this easily enough for the conjunct, for example, note the
green arrows in figures A,B,C

All I have to do is change ;

conjunct (360 = +/- 2 from the root),


conjunct (360 = +/- 4,6,8,16,32 from the root), to get the next cell
in any nth square vertically up or down

However if I want to find any value outwards on angles of 45, 90,
180, 30, 60, 120

Note the the orange and red arrows for example

I cant get accurate or even close values consistently to be derived.

There must be some way to find out for instance, using the Gann
Square, what the first, second, third, etc... order of value is at say
60 degrees outward from any value placed in the center grid

There must also be some way to select any given cell coordinate on
the grid, and then from that cell, from any angle outwards find out
what the first, second, third, value is for any nth square radiating
outward from that point would be.

Can someone help me with this? I've looked everywhere and it must
be a simple solution?

Hi Amy

I would encourage you to try wave59 dot com. Look for Erik Beann's tutorial on the Gann suite. I will try to find a link for you. DB

Maybe check

Gann Trading - Powerful Suite of Gann Trading Tools.

Wave59 > Resources > Webinar Archives

Those might provide a place to start. I know Earik has a video explanation of his use/application somewhere on the site...been a while.

Good Luck
