Dimension Lines

Gann extensively used dimension lines. He had labels and markings all over his charts. The Ganntrader program will display the price and time difference between the origin point of a selected angle and the current cursor's position. To activate or deactivate this feature select Options: Sizes, Labels & Markers. With the feature active you can also enable or disable labeling for individual marked origin points. 'Move To' the point in the usual way and hit the <L> key to turn the labels on or off for each point. <Alt><L> will quickly remove all angles and leave the dimension labels on. Notice on the time dimension line the vertical red lines mark the basic 360 time cycles. You will see a mark at 36, 72... ,30, 60... and 45, 90, 135... time periods. The time dimension label is normally the same color as the cursor lines. When the cursor is exactly equal to one of these 360 time points it will turn red in color.

When the time dimension equals the price of the origin point the label turns green in color. In other words if you were 53 days from a low of 53 the price and time would be square or equal and the label turns green to help you identify these points. This Gann technique will be covered in more detail when we get to the Squares section.

The default status of Options: Sizes, Labels & Markers can be stored by selecting Options: Configure System and click on the Save button.
