While W. D. Gann continues to be one of the most controversialfigures in technical analysis, many of his theories have beensuccessfully adapted by several generations of traders.

In this fully revised and updated Second Edition of Pattern,Price & Time, expert technician James Hyerczyk presents anaccessible overview of Gann Theory, its basic principles, and itsproper application to real markets. And while Gann's concepts are aprominent part of the book, Hyerczyk adds some of his own originalideas to the discussion and offers insights into using technicalanalysis to trade today's Forex, futures, and equities markets.

Written with both the expert and aspiring trader in mind, thisreliable resource skillfully examines the key elements of technicalanalysis—pattern, price, and time—by highlighting theproven trading techniques of Gann, and explores how these threeelements can help you anticipate market movements and make moreinformed trading decisions. Unlike other analysis or tradingdisciplines, Gann analysis can be used in conjunction with otherpopular trading tools such as pivot points and candlestick charts.In fact, Pattern, Price & Time, Second Edition is written sothat the reader can use Gann techniques to complement most tradingstrategies. The procedures highlighted will enhance a trader'sability to make sound market decisions because it teaches theimportance of balancing analysis with the right amount of pattern,price, and time.

Opening with a brief introduction to Gann, his theory, and theimportance of having accurate data and charts, Pattern, Price &Time, Second Edition moves on to address other essential issuesassociated with this discipline, including:

  1. Building swing charts using the minor trend, the intermediatetrend, and the main trend
  2. Using horizontal support and resistance levels to find balancepoints in the market
  3. Calculating Gann angles for different markets
  4. Understanding the various ways that time can be used todetermine tops, bottoms, and changes—from the most difficultmethod (natural cycles) to the most popular method (the squaring oftime)
  5. Combining pattern, price, and time into an effective analysisand trading tool
  6. And much more

After the first edition of Pattern, Price & Time waspublished, Hyerczyk received criticism that he was holding back onGann's secrets. This couldn't be further from the truth, and inorder to prove this, Hyerczyk points traders, who want to study themetaphysical aspects of Gann analysis, in the right direction.Hyerczyk also reveals what he believes is the source of Gann's Lawof Vibration and, in an effort to further enhance your tradingperformance, includes a link to the TradeStation code for his trendindicator. This will allow you to create swing charts in the samemanner as W. D. Gann.

To profitably trade today's markets, you can't rely on pattern,price, or time independently. You must apply a combination of thesethree elements to improve your analysis and trading—and withthe Second Edition of Pattern, Price & Time as your guide,you'll quickly discover exactly how.
