…and not just once in a while. W. D. Gann's real methods gave him a legendary edge. His methods were rule-based, objective, and resulted in precise trading formulas. As such, IT CAN BE BACK-TESTED. Gann himself encouraged the trader to 'go back over past records.'
Too much of what is labelled 'Gann' today is none of the above. Subjective, occasional, ethereal, and non-testable premises have no place in professional interaction with modern markets. But a whole cottage industry pedaling these wares has thrived for the last 2 decades. The latest guru selling each missing piece of the Holy Grail one $4,000 piece at a time. Sadly, the vast majority of it can't really be applied to markets- and a 'coin flip' strategy may be more profitable.
As a CMT, Arcanum's focus is on emphasizing techniques that are relatively simple to calculate and apply, occur often, and back-test showing a real edge. Gann also applied his techniques to conventional technical analysis based on market data. Combined with top institutional trading or analysis strategies, we believe you get the best of both worlds. Only the naïve expect 'Gann' to be some approach where one looks at a wheel for 1 minute a day and knows exactly when to buy and sell. But that's the lore.
The beauty of Gann's unpublished methods is that they can do things that contemporary technical analysis can't. When integrated in modern technical analysis, one is enabled to time turns in Elliot Wave, differentiate a pullback from a change Momentum Trading, and predict the direction and duration of a trend for Trend Followers.
