Gann's Pattern of Vibration
Gann's Pattern of Vibration tool is based on Tony Plummer's groundbreaking research in The Law of Vibration - The Revelation of William D. Gann:
"Ordered behaviour in financial markets and in economic activity presents itself in the form of a specific behavioural pattern. This pattern, which was known about in antiquity, appears to control the processes of change and evolution. It was used by the financial market trader William D. Gann, and he hid it in one of his best-known books."

To apply the tool to your chart, select it from the Gann tool menu. With the tool selected, left-click once on the chart to choose a starting point and left-click on the chart again to select the end point.
