W. D. Gann's Square of Nine Gann relied heavily on geometrical and numerical relationships and created several tools to help with his work. Among these tools are the Square of Nine, Square of 144, and the Hexagon. The Square of Nine, or Square as we will refer to here, can be constructed in at least two ways. The static Square has the number 1 at the center and the dynamic Square has the historic low of the time series in the center. A Square of Nine is included with this book and you can refer to that as we describe its construction. The Square is a grid of numbers that begins in the center with the number 1. The number 2 is entered in the box to the left of the number 1. Moving up and around clockwise (some are constructed by moving anticlockwise so as to work consistently with astro charts), 1 is added to the previous number and the resulting number is entered in the box. This is repeated in a spiral around the center. The important parts of the Square are the center, the Cardinal Cross composed of the vertical and horizontal rows that intersect at the middle of the square, and the lines extending at 45 degrees, 135 degrees, 225 degrees, and 315 degrees that constitute the Fixed Cross. The Cardinal Cross and Fixed Cross are used to determine likely points of support and resistance.  Excerpt from: "The Secret of The Universe, Gann Square and Beyond" Recently there has been great attention paid to "Black Swans" which are unpredictable and highly significant events. Can Gann methods be used to forecast a Black Swan? This is an area requiring significant research, however the payoff is potentially astronomical.
