Gann Square Of Nine: Excel Template And Library
This is a brief documentation for the free Gann Square of Nine Excel Workbook file located in the software store.
I have some material written on the subject of Gann Square that I planned to publish soon. Then I realized that without a working Gann Square on hand it will be difficult for many people to understand what I am talking about. It is better to upload the Excel workbook and the code library first and then follow up with the articles.
Basic Usage of the Gann Square of Nine Excel Workbook
First it is an Excel 2007 file so you need a newer version of Excel to work with it. You also need the VBA enabled in the workbook to use it as the Gann Square functions are implemented in Excel VBA. And before anyone asking why not do it in Google spreadsheet, it is not a good idea at all because Excel is way better in this aspect in terms of customization and application building.
After opening the workbook, the example gann square will show up. You can use it as is. Print it out for reference, look up values from there, etc.
There is also a second spreadsheet in there called Gann Square Custom. It showcases the possibility of constructing custom gann sqaure based on different initial settings.
Customization And Utilization Of The Gann Square of Nine Excel VBA Library
When you want to go one step further and build your own customized Gann Square, then you need to follow the following steps.
1. Make a copy of the workbook using a different name as you need the VBA code library from the workbook. Advanced Excel users can do it in one of many other ways in including the code library.
2. On the spreadsheet that you want to create a new Gann Square, locate the cell that you want to put the Gann Square to and give it a name using Name A Range command in Excel. The example spreadsheets named the center cells as gann and gannc.
3. Fill every cell in the region for Gann Square with this single formula,
=gannValue (center cell name)
3a. if you want to experiment with custom Gann Square configuration you can use the following formula instead,
=gannValueCustom (center cell name, center square value, increment value)
4. Ring color formatting in the examples are done using conditional formatting in Excel. The formula is essentially a reverse calculation of the ring value based on the property of Gann Square which I will discuss in a separate article.
Following is the conditional formatting formula used in the custom gann square example,
"RC" in the formula is the current cell relative reference in R1C1 style.
"3" in the formula is the centre cell value.
"0.5" is the increment value for each step.
Purpose Of The Workbook
It is a useful building block for anyone interested in constructing Gann Square but do not know how it can be done without hard coding formulas in a spreadsheet.
Anyone interested in additional functions added to the library please let me know.
Chart Reading Skill Matters
Gann square is not a tool that can work by itself. You need proper training in classic chart reading to be able to fully utilize the information you get from Gann Square. To upgrade your chart reading skill, I suggest you start with my book Art of Chart Reading available at Amazon.
