Book Review by Jaye Abbate, Traders' Library
Gann Simplified by Clif Droke
"Much of the wisdom from today's top trading gurus originally came from Gann," claims author Steve Woods in his introduction to "Gann Simplified." W.D. Gann's groundbreaking concepts have influenced several generations of traders and many of today's most successful investors. Yet - his work is often considered complex and difficult for many to grasp. Now, Clif Droke makes the elusive accessible by giving us a "simplified" glimpse into Gann's classic trading techniques.
Some would say "Gann Simplified" is an oxymoron, because there is little that is simple in Gann's writings. However, Droke's new work provides an enlightening insight into the life and theories of this fascinating man and legendary trader. Despite his death over 50 years ago, and the fact that many of his trading rules were first published more than 70 year ago - his methods are every bit as viable today as they were decades ago.
Gann's contributions to technical analysis and trading are truly staggering and continue to have significant applications to today's trader - whether you're interested in money management, the dangers of "pyramiding," a "top down" analytical approach or basic chart reading. Gann's highly original and classic theories remain highly relevant even in today's turbulent markets.
This hands-on new manual provides readers of all experience levels with an excellent overview of Gann's breakthrough concepts, including:
- The basic foundations of Gann Theory including his signature "Law of Vibration"
- The type of chart Gann felt was the most important and why'
- Gann's special swing charting approach
- Gann's 24 "Never Failing" Trading Rules
- How Gann explains support & resistance
Steve Woods, in his introduction, credits Gann for the original idea that led to the development of his own theory of "float analysis" and creation of his brand new float indicator. In fact, many traders continue to be inspired and influenced by the teachings of this famous guru. If you're among that group - you are sure to find valuable insights into the man and his methods.
If you've only heard about Gann, but didn't know where to start gathering background that is informative yet understandable - Gann Simplified is the perfect starting point.
Get to the essence of Gann's seminal theories - and discover how to apply them directly to today's markets - with the new book that provides a wonderful overview of "arguably one of the most successful traders in the annals of Wall Street History" - and a looking glass into his most powerful teachings.
