W.D. Gann had many ways to look for changes in the market from 30, 60, 90 .... days from highs and lows to anniversary dates of those same dates and the one that seems so simple, but effective was to watch the seasonal change of Spring, Summer, Autumn and Winter.

The charts below are KEY to this analysis!

There are plenty of times that the markets turn right on the date, or within a week of it. For 2023 these dates are 3/20, 6/21, 9/23 and 12/21.

There are charts below that have the vertical lines on it to market these dates for the CORN ETF, Live Cattle, and Crude Oil.  It would be hard, or daring to use these dates alone and we recommend using the major Gann squares and Fibonacci retracements to trade around these areas for support and resistance, it is then that you can determine the risk.

Once you do have a turn in the market it can sometime take it the next season before another turn happens, or it can give you a decent move from it. That is where the Fibonacci retracements with the ONE44 rules and guidelines help to determine if the trend will continue, or where it fails.

The charts below also have the major Gann squares and Fibonacci retracements, so you can see where the market found support and resistance.


March was two days off the bottom of a small rally. June was spot on the top of a $5.00 break. September was 3 days off the bottom.

Live Cattle

March was one day off of a $17.00 rally. June was one day off a $14.00 rally. September was two days off the contract high and a $29.00 break.

Crude Oil

March was 3 trading days off of a $12.00 rally. June was 5 trading days off of a $22.00 rally. September was 4 days off of the contract high and a $ 20.00 break.

FULL RISK DISCLOSURE: Futures trading contains substantial risk and is not for every investor. An investor could potentially lose all or more than the initial investment. Commission Rule 4.41(b)(1)(I) hypothetical or simulated performance results have certain inherent limitations. Unlike an actual performance record, simulated results do not represent actual trading. Also, since the trades have not actually been executed, the results may have under- or over-compensated for the impact, if any, of certain market factors, such as lack of liquidity. Simulated trading programs in general are also subject to the fact that they are designed with the benefit of hindsight.
