Lambert-Gann Educators - W.D. Gann's Square of Nine Part 1


Under the section titled 'Time and Price Resistance Points According to Squares of Numbers' in the W. D. Gann
Commodity Course, Mr. Gann wrote that:

Stocks [and commodities] work out to the square of different numbers, triangle points of different numbers, the
squares of their bottoms, the squares of their tops, or to a halfway point of the different squares according to the time

Therefore it is important for you to study the resistance levels according to these numbers. The squares of each
number and the halfway point between the squares of one number and the next point are very important. For example:

● The square of 2 is 4; the square of 3 is 9. The halfway point between 4 and 9 is 6.5.
● The square of 4 is 16; the square of 5 is 25. The halfway point between 16 and 25 is 20.5.
● The square of 6 is 36; the square of 7 is 49. The halfway point between 36 and 49 is 42.5.
● The square of 8 is 64; the square of 9 is 81. The halfway point between 64 and 81 is 72.5.
● The square of 10 is 100; the square of 11 is 121. The halfway point between 100 and 121 is 110.5.
● The square of 12 is 144; the square of 13 is169. The halfway point between 144 and 169 is 132.5.

If you examine closely the numbers of the 'square of nine' or the 'odds and evens chart' (see below), you find that these
natural squares are aligned on the same angle from the center. The odd squares of 1, 9, 25, 49, 81, and so on, go from
the center down to the lower left-hand corner. The even squares of 4, 16, 36, 64, 100, and so on, go from the center up
to the top right-hand corner.

Since the distance from 16 (the square or four) to 25 (the square of five) is 180 degrees around the chart, it becomes
clear why Mr. Gann expected changes in the trend of a market price at 180 degrees or 'on an angle of 180'. Similarly, he
would expect changes at 90 degrees (one-half of one square) and 360 degrees (two squares).

The square progression seems to work better with three significant digits. If you are studying a market with four digits in a
price, try dropping the last number to get to a number you can use on the chart. Similarly, if you are studying a low price
stock, try adding a zero or move the decimal to get three significant digits.

The square of nine is without a doubt one of Mr. Gann's most powerful trading and analysis tools. It also can be a little
complex. Re-read this article and we will examine this powerful tool further in the next issue of The New W. D. Gann
Technical Review.
