i want teatch too how i can trade with gan indector


We answered this request in PM as poster sent in that manner too.

We (again) pointed out that examples of using these indicators can be found in the

A-B-C-D thread, of the tutorial section.

When you get there, use the function button:

Search This Thread

Input subject you wish to find. If it is an indicator such as Gann_SQ9, that's what you would type in that box.

Since there are several SQ9 indicators, you will also get some of the others.

Please read as many examples as you can find. If you still have questions, ask in a very detailed way.

Simply saying you want to learn how to use the Gann indicators indicates that you want someone to spent 6 months teaching you.

Obviously, we cannot provide free one-on-one tutoring/mentoring. If you don't want to pay for it, you have to do some digging and use your own intuition.

The very first thing you need to recognize is the Gann fractions of the 360-degree circle: 45, 90, 135, 180, etc. These are used as support and resistance (S&R).

You have to understand how to use S&R, along with money management.


Today, we have just deposited another example on using different versions of Square of Nine (SQ9) in the A-B-C-D thread under the Tutorial Section.


After downloading indicator, including supporting files, the clarification on settings are:

Moon provides diagonal S&R and is listed as Planet 1 on the list of planets found in the Inputs tab. I think the default setting uses the Moon anyway.

You'll see that in the input boxes: planet 1 is 1 for Moon.

Planet 2 through 9 = -1 (minus 1)

You can try other planets, including Mars, which is 4, or a combination of planets.

Only users with deeper knowledge of astro trading will change the default "natal date". This is dictated by currency pair, birthday of a particular currency, and location.

The input for "Angle" is for the Gann angles. This is the same as "Aspects", which is the positional relationship between planets, in degrees.

The basic numbers are 0, 45, 90, 135, 180, 235, 270, 315. You can use all of these, which require inserting indicator 8 times, or you can use it at 90-degree intervals which are 0, 90, 180, 270.

Digits and multiplier relate to which currency pair you apply this to. For example:

EUR/JPY settings would be:

Digit = 5 Multiplier = .01 (since price represented as 103.14 for example)


Digits = 4 Multiplier = .01 (price example 83.42)

Therefore EUR/JPY has one more digit than USD/JPY

EUR/USD would be set at Digits = 5 Multiplier = .0001 (price example 1.3250),

which should be the default settings.

Make templates so you don't have to repeat this for every chart.

The rest of the inputs can be left on default. Heliocentric is an astro term defining which direction planets are view from. The opposite is geocentric, which is how most astro traders view. It should be left on default unless user is familiar with this.

The above are the important input details.

hOffset is for number of hours from GMT. It can be a + number or a minus number. I believe this only is useful to astro traders that try to project time.

edit add; make sure in the "common" tab that you check off (select) "Allow DLL imports".


Trading with astrophysics is obviously very difficult to comprehend, and the actual percentage of traders successful at it over a long period of time is thought to be very small.

Gann was mysterious in some of his techniques; one category was undoubtedly using astrophysics. When asked about his techniques used in predicting markets, he simply said it took him 20 years and he’ll keep it a secret, and the world is not ready for it anyway.

One person that is thought to be one of the few with good translation of some of Gann’s astrophysics methodologies is Myles Wilson Walker. He has written many books, including those found here:

The Delta Phenomenon featured astrophysics, and was purchased in 1983 and expanded by the famed J. Welles Wilder, whom some consider the father of modern day technical analysis. He created the indicators RSI, ATR, and the Parabolic SAR.

We’ll preface by stating that we are not experts in this field, but observe the requirement for other supporting techniques to form attractive signals with astro tools. Thus far, we’ve presented a few examples that were simple. We’d like to keep it that way, and in the next few days, we’ll post examples.

A fairly easy technique to understand is the trading of a planet’s return to forward motion, and revisiting the same coordinates. That is to say after a planet has been in “retrograde” motion (backwards). Here are the rules:

On the daily chart, seek out major turning points. Use the indicator AstroIndicator_Retrograde, to see if a particular planet was in retrograde during that major pivot.

A handful of planets can be tried, including Mercury (a fast planet produces more opportunities), Mars, and Venus, until you find one that corresponds with a major turning point.

Once this requirement is found, use an ephemeris to read the planet’s coordinates during that high or low.

A free ephemeris is the ZET lite version. An example is Mercury 15-degrees 13’ 40”. You’d have to try to pinpoint the hour, or within 4 hours of the high/low, in order to be more precise when using the ephemeris.

Now, we need to look for the very next time this planet reaches the same coordinates, while going forward in motion (called direct). Use the ephemeris by spinning it forward in time until it reaches the coordinates, which is shown on the upper right. Mousing over the planet’s symbol on the ephemeris dial will also show the coordinates.

Be careful, and note that while spinning the ephemeris forward, the planet’s coordinates can go backwards and then forward. When using a fast planet such as Mercury, it is easy to miss the next hit to the coordinate, as it can sometimes come quickly. When using a slow planet, the ephemeris can be instructed to jump to a certain date ahead, which will save the time of spinning.

The date and time generated by the ephemeris is the area for a potential turning point. These tools and techniques have been known to be off by a few days. A lot can happen in a few days. Therefore, we still need to know how to trade it.

Obviously, if the student becomes more serious in the subject, an investigation into more sophisticated software should be conducted. Meanwhile, this is a free way to conduct a couple of trading techniques.

Post # 87 in this thread, and linked below, contains the indicator with accompanying files in RAR, which needs to be unzipped.

Attached is our first example with chart. The examples after that will be in the A-B-C-D thread of the Tutorial Section.


Mercury Retrograde High =Mar 15, 2012 01:00

6-degree 18’ 13”


Next Direct To Same Coordinates = Apr 23rd 01:05


Other Notes:

Apr 20th high = 81.77 (38.2% retrace fib ). Entry candle only 27 pips from high.

Fib High = 84.17 Low = 80.28 produced 38.2 = 81.77

HAMA_T3 held as resistance at pullback/entry.

PSQ9 Mercury 180-degree and Earth 180 degree intersected at 81.46

Apr 19th RSI(4) = 70

Apr 23rd candle crosses RSI(4) 50 level.

Extension to downside respected 138.2 (intersected by next level down Mercury 180-degree) and 161.8 (intersected by next level down Earth 180-degree).


We present a setting for AstroIndicator4 for EUR/USD weekly.

This indicator with accompanying files can be found in page 9 of this thread, post #87.

Inputs tab:

Body = 3 (Venus)

Body2 = 2 (Mercury)

Common tab:

Check “Allow DLL imports”

Everything else on default.

The value of peaks and dips of the AstroIndicator 4 can be read by mousing over it, as it displays in the data window. These denote potential turning points, but do not give direction of trade.

To filter out bad signals, as well as give us direction of trade, we suggest using RSI set on 4-period. The overbought/oversold levels are 70/30 (or to your choice). The previous week shall close in OB or OS condition.

Trade direction shall be opposite the OB/OS. Sell when previous week RSI(4) reading is 70 or higher. Buy when previous week RSI(4) reading is 30 or lower.

The results listed below go back to 2007, as can be seen on the attached chart. The previous week’s RSI(4) reading is placed above the arrows pointing to signal.

Once you mouse over these points, you will be impressed by how accurate and simple it is. The rest of the equation is money management. It doesn’t create a lot of signals, but some traders prefer it that way. These opportunities can also accompany a trader's regular activity.

Since this uses an astro tool, we can see future potential turning points. The next one is marked by the vertical line on July 8th.

B = Buy S = Sell

X = No trade

Black with yellow highlight = Win

Red = Loss.

thanks fxbaja share settings SQ9 i catch trend AUD with big profit


Congratulations! Sorry, we don't check this thread everyday.

We attach a reproduction of your trade. We can only manipulate Gann_SQ9 indicator to measure swings:

July 19th - July 25th

July 25th -Aug 2nd (Pending)

Looks like you have a trend indicator that changed, making entry trigger. You also have an indicator on bottom of chart, crossing its 50% level to assist in trigger entry.

You seemed to have used the Gann_SQ9 to understand movement down to pivot low July 19th, as well as movement respecting levels on large upswing.

The downswing bounced off the 180-degree and pulled back 38.2%, and then made a 138.2% extension to July 25th bottom.

On our chart, we used the HAMA_T3 indicator for trend. Price stayed above it until July 31st. It is conceivable that trader used Gann_SQ9 to exit at 315-degree level, prior to large dips.

Price Aug 2nd was hit to important 360-degree level.

Viewers can duplicate our chart, important Gann_SQ9 settings:

Angle = 22.5 (default)

kov_level = 24

ExtDepth = 100

If viewer tries to duplicate chart too long after today, the swings can change and you need to adjust settings.

The 2nd chart adds Gann Activator Bars (GAB).

Chart 3 incorporates the fib plot. We can see the Aug 3rd hit to the 161.8% extension.


looking for this indicator, or maybe someone can make modification ...thx
