Kalyani, West Bengal, India, 2012/03/28 - StockManiacs.net introduces GANN calculator for traders worldwide. The calculator is based on the theory of W. D. GANN's square of 9. The calculator can be used to get entry, stop loss, targets.
The GANN Square of 9 is basically a spiral of numbers. The initial value can be found in the center of the spiral. This value is then increased by moving in a spiral form. Normally the center value is 1 and the step is one creating the spiral shown below.
Our Calculator is based on the theory of W. D. GANN's Square Of 9. Gann relied heavily on geometrical and numerical relationships and created several tools to help with his work. Among these tools are the Square of Nine, Square of 144, and the Hexagon.
The Square of Nine, or Square as we will refer to here, can be constructed in at least two ways. The static Square has the number 1 at the center and the dynamic Square has the historic low of the time series in the center. The Square is a grid of numbers that begins in the center with the number 1. The number 2 is entered in the box to the left of the number 1. Moving up and around clockwise (some are constructed by moving anticlockwise so as to work consistently with astro charts), 1 is added to the previous number and the resulting number is entered in the box. This is repeated in a spiral around the center.
3. The important parts of the Square are the center, the Cardinal Cross composed of the vertical and horizontal rows that intersect at the middle of the square, and the lines extending at 45 degrees, 135 degrees, 225 degrees, and 315 degrees that constitute the Fixed Cross. The Cardinal Cross and Fixed Cross are used to determine likely points of support and resistance.
This calculator is meant for trading only intraday.

More on GANN Square of 9: The Square of 9 is so fabulous for traders to understand because it is the only tool that can generate specific dates into the future where a market may have major changes in trend or direction.
Now just that statement alone can cause some traders to scoff. How can anyone know the future trading direction or price of a market?
Gann held a trading record which has been unsurpassed by anyone since. In front of a customs inspector he turned $130 into $12,000 in less than 1 month. Again, in the presence of an independent witness, he made 286 trades, 264 winners and 22 were losses.
Gann closely guarded his secrets whilst he was alive, but almost certainly the Square of 9 calculations was pivotal in his trading methods. The Square of 9 was not created by Gann. He actually found it inscribed in a temple in India and on the walls of the Great pyramid in Egypt, but he was certainly the first trader to recognise its importance and relevance in market trading.
To give an in depth education in one article is simply not possible, it would not do this powerful tool justice, but to give one small and simple demonstration of this tool’s power we can look at the most closely watched market in world trading today, the S&P 500 in the USA or the Nifty in India.
At one point in his trading career, W.D.Gann took three year’s leave to go to the U.K to study the past history of selling prices of Wheat. During his meticulous studies, he developed some very powerful and innovative techniques, none more so than his use of the tool we call The Square of 9.
"I soon began to note the periodical reoccurrence of the rise and fall of stocks and commodities. This led me to conclude that natural law was the basis of market movements. I then decided to a devote 10 years of my life to the study of natural law, as applicable to the speculative markets and to devote my best energies toward making speculation a profitable profession.” - W.D. Gann
