180 DEGREE OR 180 DAY CHANGE OF TREND
One of W. D. Gann's methods to determine major trend changes is the "180 Degree" or180-calendar day trend change. 180 degrees of the cycle of a year is equal to 180 days.Gann said to watch all markets that have been up or down that period of time.Let us look at a couple of markets on this basis. The December S & P made a contract lowon January 7, 1985. Gann would be watching the area of July 7, 1985 for indications of achange in trend.The high was made on July 17, 1985 which was actually 10 calendar days off but still inthe ball park.
