Clockwork GEO

The Architect's Plan for Future Prices

In the same way that water flows downhill based on the land’s topography, prices ebb and flow based on forces applied to them. The difference, of course, is that you can’t readily see the market’s topography. Clockwork GEO geometry exposes it, giving you a map, or architect's blueprint, of what to expect from the market.

If you are an order flow trader, you might be thinking that the force is simply volume. But before there is volume, someone has to decide to trade. Geometry moves us closer to the origin of the trading decision.

For the last 15 years, I have studied the art and science of market geometry. I started with Fibonacci, Andrews, Babson and Gann, and eventually found myself lost in ancient texts on the origins of sacred geometry. Having studied photography as a teenager, the idea of geometry as the basis of art was not new to me. But what I did not know was that these same ideas represent laws which shape our world. And it was these laws which were the genesis of G Square Pro.

Key Facts to Get You Started
  Price-Time Squares
• Clockwork GEO geometry consists of price-time squares.
• The concept was originated by W.D. Gann, but Clockwork GEO is far more advanced than anything he ever envisioned.
  x axis = natural market cycle
• The X (time) axis of the squares are based on a natural market cycle, for example a day, week, month or year.
  y axis: multiple options
• Some options are directly related to recent market action, for example the previous cycle's range.
• Other options are only loosely tied to prices, or not at all. For example, fixed scaling based on a stock's IPO price may be used throughout the stock's trading life.
  linear time matters
• Linear time is a key component of Clockwork GEO, and it does not apply to tick, volume charts, etc.
• Think of time progressing through a cycle (day, week, etc.) as the Sun progressing through its yearly cycle. The cycle midpoint is the equivalent to the summer solstice, and is the point of highest energy. (Energy is not bullish or bearish by nature, it is just energy.)
• The 25%, 50% and 75% vertical lines you see on Clockwork GEO are synonymous with the equinoxes and summer solstice, and represent comparable high energy points on the chart.
  price support and resistance
• Clockwork GEO offers a number of different geometry options, ranging from simple to very complex.
• Angles are natural trendlines providing support and resistance.
• Circles depict the natural energy field implied by the square. These can serve to contain the market, or reject it.
  inner geometry
• The X (time) axis of the squares are based on a natural market cycle, for example a day, week, month or year.
  geometry is fractal
• Fractal behavior in markets is usually associated with Elliott's wave theory, but the same idea applies to Clockwork GEO.
• A daily cycle fits inside a weekly cycle which fits in a monthly cycle, etc..
