Advanced GET Drawing Tools - Gann Box
The Gann Box is an excellent tool that uses the Gann Wheel as a basis for its pattern of price and time. The box is similar to Gann Angles except the angles inside of the Gann Box are directly related to each other. The angles inside of the Gann Box are used for support and resistance.

Techniques using the Gann Box to trade with are dealt with extensively in the Advanced GET Trading Seminar. Contact your sales representative for more details regarding the seminar. 

Please note that you must purchase Advanced GET to access this study.

How do I apply the Gann Box study?
To apply a Gann Box on a chart, left-click on the Drawing Tools icon, then left-click on the icon labeled Gann Box on the Advanced Line toolbar.
Alternatively, you can also right-click on the chart, when the menu appears, highlight Insert Drawing Tool, left-click on Gann Box. A keyboard shortcut (Alt + B) is also available.
The Gann Box is usually drawn from a high or low pivot point. You can use the Gann Pivot study to determine pivots, or use the termination of an Elliott Wave 5th wave, or your own discretion.
To edit the Gann Box parameters, either right-click on the chart and select Edit Chart or right-click on any of the lines of the Gann Box and select Edit.

Box Color: Select the color of the grid that makes up the Gann Box.
Original Interval: Displays the time interval in which the Gann Box was originally created.
Scaling: selection list allows you to choose between a Gann Box made using Fixed Increments for scaling and a Gann Box drawn using a Free Form scaling.
     • The Fixed Increments scaling is used when you want the Gann Box to be drawn with the computer generated fixed interval patterns that are built
         into GET.

        Form scaling, you have total control on the size of the box.
