W. D. Gann's justly famous work on the trading of commodities. I am writing this book to supply a universal demand: and give rules that will forecast the trend of commodities. Conditions have changed rapidly during the last few years and will change more rapidly after this great war is over than ever before in history. Men will return to the soil of Mother Nature to make a living. Investors and speculators will have to look for new ways to make money in the future and will find it more difficult in the stock market; therefore, the necessities of life, the basic commodities, will offer greater opportunities than investments in stocks and bonds, providing the trader knows the rules to follow. My object is to write something that will be helpful to people in trade lines and to those who have long years of experience in the commodity market, as well as the inexperienced trader who wants knowledge and needs to learn the ways to start right, and to protect his capital and make profits. Life affords no greater pleasure than that of helping others who are trying to help themselves. I am going to give the best of my forty years of experience in this book, and I hope to show others the way to help themselves and follow mathematical rules in the commodity market, which will result in profits. I do not believe in gambling or reckless speculation, but am firmly convinced, after years of experience, that if traders will follow rules and trade on definite indications, that speculation can be made a profitable profession. Trading in commodities is not a gambling business, as some people think, but a practical, safe business when conducted on business principles. I offer this book to the public with a sincere conviction that if they put in the time studying, they will derive great benefits.… (more)
