Triple Octave Time Support and Resistance Lines
This tool is based on the same principles as the Triple Octave Support and Resistance Lines but is calculated on time rather than price.
As described in The Law of Vibration - The Revelation of William D. Gann, Tony Plummer explains the relationship between pairs of musical notes in the tonic solfa (ie, Do, Re, Me, Fa, So, La, Ti, Do). Gann used this relationship between the notes to calculate support and resistance levels.
For more information on this tool, please contact Tony at Helmsman Economics.
To add the tool to your chart, select the tool from the Gann tool group, and left-click on the first bar you want to calculate the tool from. Next, left-click on the bar where you want to calculate the tool to. Optuma will then draw the tool using the default settings.
