The order he wrote them is below if that helps.

You would do well to obtain a copy of his Commodities and Stock courses also.

Lambert Gann will ship too you ....

Gann also stipulated a recommended reading list that is mostly available from Lambert Gann as well, you may have to hunt around for a couple of out of print . ;)

Brad Cowan's publications of the courses are worth considering and good quality.

My other comment would be don't over complicate it ...

Hope that helps some way

Thanks alot well i got the recomended reading list along with the books you mentioned below . But in TTTA there is alot of symbolism and it gets hard to understand the true meaning of all.So which other stuff from his reading list should be read so to get a better understanding of TTTA.

Hi there -

I think everyones journey is different, and as i don't know your trading experience, its hard to give you any real prudent advice - except to say TTTA is a complex book requiring much work to decipher.

Having said that, GANN left a tidy set of rules for using a mechanical system which works a treat when the rules are followed.
(A great current example of which is GOOG )
This will give you the tools to make a tidy income whist you work on TTTA and the hidden rules in HTMPIC.

If you are just starting out you will require a strong understanding of Swing trading and Money management, all of which is covered in Ganns material.

I would strongly recommend mastering his mechanical system before moving to the more esoteric work, which will lead you on an amazing journey of discovery, perhaps one that can not be competed in one lifetime.

The US STEEL lessons provide a great grounding for this mechanical system.

I dont normally read or follow forums but there are some excellent posts and interesting discussion here,
and as i think Mr Steele said previously the best work is that left by Mr Gann , and you need to be true to that work, and be careful that others, and their interpretation of the work does not sway your own interpretation.

By interpretation, i mean you could give 10 traders the same system and the same rules and you would get 10 different results because of interpretation and implementation.

I will also say, and i've been working with this material since 1989 - it was not until i started to create my own hand drawn charts from the material left by GANN I could see what he was doing, there are NO short cuts. and i still use hand drawn charts today particularly for active markets i am trading. ( but thats another discussion.)

The Journey is not easy but the rewards are more than worth while for those who persist.

Feel free to PM me if you wish ...

Good Luck and Great trading.

J got some good starter advice there!Next to US Steel one should also look at AUBURN MOTORS afterwards as it presents some "advanced" concepts.If one is not into esoterism the journey ends with the simple mechanical stuff,albeit at the core most of Gann is "mechanical" one way or the other.

Luigi - thank you - i think Gann has become a topic that is misrepresented as having most importance in the esoteric side, and there was far more to his work.

I think that the mistake people make with GANN is that they jump to the TTTA stuff thinking there is some silver bullet.
They then become disillusioned when they can't , after reading Tunnel twice find " The Answer ". and move to some Simpler method.

Good call on Auburn Motors - i think Lambert gann produced a set of charts for Auburn, also the data is pretty easy to get to create the charts yourself.

The interesting thing about AUBURN, or US STEEL, BEANS, WHEAT, COTTON OR DOW, for example is if you create the charts, you can overlay the esoteric stuff on them and build the full story.

Well does anybody have a crack of wave 59? Its too expensive to buy with 7500$ or anyone could suggest what software to use for Gann methods?

Srry, don´t know why so many Threads, could you please put all together? thanks =)
You been joking,right?:D
If you are overwhelmed by the amount of info-dont be.Consider the seemingly chaotic info an admission test to the Gann World.It is not for everybody!And thats by far not to be taken negatively,travelling the Gann path is like crossing the dessert hunting water.Some cant stand heat,discouraging situations or simply looking for water.The dessert then is not your favourite place to be.Also if you are some kind of religious fanatic in an objective evaluation-look for something else.
If indeed someone still wants to feel the sand of the dessert in his face,think about how one gets across a dessert-you dont simply start wandering in some direction.You check routes travelled by others before,maybe you dont like that scenery,ok,so draw up your own map,get your compass and draw up your own plan,but dont just go about wandering,you will get lost

well by far i have been silent because i have been reading and grinding the things told by Gann. Well i i made few observations that Gann did not mean to start everything from start. The main focus of him to start things from All time highs or lows as that it is easy for people to start from one point and keep adding knowledge. As he said he cud predict to the exact points that was just becuase he had good grip on the concepts.

WEll for till now i have used SQUARE of 9 for finding reversal dates and they do work very well but yet again in markets there is nothing that is Exact. Another concept i read of gann was %age from all time low and then from all time high and i have seen it works like a charm.

I will like to thank John K. who have been patient to bear my question and also guiding me when i need it. I still do use his very first advice of 50% and double tops and bottoms. So in short Gann is not hard to get but yes it takes times and the wonderful thing i have seen in it is that it can astray you easily and those who have NERVES of STEEL which is needed in trading keep on learning and keep adding to there knowledge.

I would like the learned person like John K. and lugi and others to please keep on guiding us as always and do share some concept which should be looked again in those books with some new perspective

May I recommend Mystifying Square, divine proportions - Nature's Black Box.

May I recommend Mystifying Square, divine proportions - Nature's Black Box.

It will teach you all about the Time Factor and Law of Vibration, explain the Square of 9 and geometric angles. It will also teach you to combine Gann with Elliott. Good luck
