Gann Analysis of Euro Vs Usd


As shown on the Euro vs Usd chart below, one technique which WD Gann explained was finding the mid point between the highest and lowest that a security had traded.

Point 1. Shown on the chart is marked with a tan line which represents a major support level that may become active very soon. It is just above the 1.2000 level.

Point 2. Shown by the red line and red arrows represent old resistance / old support. Gann explains that once resistance is broken, usually it becomes support. The red arrows show clearly this to be the case on many instances in the past twelve years since the Euro has been trading. This level is near the 1.2000 mark.

If price trades down toward 1.2000 we can expect to see a high level of probability that it will react at this level. The chances are high that if it hits this level it will move back up again from here.

Remember that these are only a couple of chart reading techniques suggested by WD Gann.

In his own words, "It is possible to get as many as nine confirmations of reasons why a market should be at a bottom or top at a certain time. And the greater number of confirmations, the surer the chances of (reaping rewards)."
