Master and Apply W.D. Gann’s Techniques of High-Profit Trading

“Hima Reddy successfully breaks Gann’s complex body of knowledge into small, easily digestible pieces. Her carefully selected chart examples guide you through his trading and forecasting methodologies. And, the vibrations of price/patterns/time are felt within these pages along with the warm, personal touches from Gann’s many quotes and the advice from Hima’s loving father.”
—Ralph J. Acampora, CMT, Director, Technical Analysis, Altaira Limited

“Hima Reddy has written a book that shows how the theories and rules that Gann developed are just as current for today’s volatile markets as they were years ago. She explains these theories in plain English with very understandable examples. This book gives the reader guidelines for trading in any market and provides great insights on methods of risk management. It gives clear levels for managing draw-downs, accumulating profits, and rules for entry, stops, and yes, exits. Great book on W.D. Gann and a wonderful explanation of some of his work.”
—Jeanette Schwarz Young, CFP®, CMT, M.S., CMT Program Director and author of “The Option Queen” newsletter

“This book is a superb summary of the theories of one of the most respected traders in history, W.D. Gann. Mysteries have surrounded his works for decades, and Hima Reddy has presented some of Gann’s best ideas in a clear and concise manner. My experience with Gann’s work began in the 1960s, and this book would have been a good addition to my library at that time, as it is now.”
—Larry Pesavento, 50-year veteran trader

W.D. Gann’s works helped to pioneer the discipline of technical analysis. Decades later, they still offer immense potential value to investors and traders. However, Gann’s original publications are esoteric and can be challenging to read and use. In The Trading Methodologies of W.D. Gann, experienced day trader and chartered technical analyst Hima Reddy brings these works to life for modern traders and investors.

Reddy distills Gann’s tenets into crystal-clear, bite-size explanations and illuminates them with exceptionally intuitive charts and illustrations. She explains how Gann’s insights into price, pattern, and time can be applied in all types of traded securities and market conditions. With Reddy’s discussion as a foundation, you can delve more deeply into all of Gann’s works, identifying even greater opportunities for profit.

Meet the Author

Hima Reddy, CMT, was first introduced to technical analysis, and to the works of W.D. Gann, during her high school years by her father, who has had a passion for trading and the markets since the early 1980s. However, it wasn’t until after she completed an undergraduate Finance degree at Indiana University’s Kelley School of Business, and returned to her home state of New York in 2001, that she immersed herself in the markets. She simultaneously volunteered as a sponsorship coordinator for several Market Technicians Association conferences, traded equity and commodity futures under the tutelage and guidance of her father, and completed the Chartered Market Technician certification. In 2006, she joined Informa Global Markets, an independent financial research firm providing live, 24-hour market analysis. As Senior Technical Analyst, she was responsible for producing timely and accurate short-term technical analysis and trading strategies for fixed income and FX markets. With analysis ranging through multiple timeframes, her team also prepared written updates covering longer-term trends. Hima’s “guru” has always been Gann—the first market analysis book she ever studied in-depth was How to Make Profits in Commodities—and to this day that is her go-to guide to the markets. Since 2011 she has returned to trading independently and continues to write about the financial markets. Her primary methods of technical analysis include pattern recognition and time duration relationships within markets based on Gann’s methodology, momentum assessment through the use of the Relative Strength Index (RSI), Fibonacci relationships, and moving average systems including the use of channels for trade management. Hima now resides with her husband in Baltimore, Maryland.
