This is volume 1 in a two volume series. This was the first book devoted entirely to the topic of W.D. Gann's financial astrology methods. The original edition was written in 1995 and during the periods when this book was out of print the hardcover two volume set sold on used book sites for as high as $450 dollars. We have now reformatted this book in ebook format and are making it widely available again. The legendary trader W.D.Gann used financial astrology methods which he discussed in private letters and personal correspondence. This book was written with the beginner in mind. There is no prior knowledge required to understand the financial astrology methods presented. Everything is presented in simple language and each chapter has a review of the important points. The discussions in this book involve the commodity markets which W.D. Gann traded but the methods can be applied the same to any market.
