"Equal Spacing on the circle"
The complete bull and bear campaigns that we studied (1975-1977 and 1987-1989) illustrated how turning points are separated equally on the circle.  After jumping ahead to 1987 to tie in a similar move, let's return the analysis to 1977.
​Here we will expand this concept further and link it to Gann's most enigmatic concepts.
The 1975-1977 move had 636 cents up and 637 days over to where the move completed on 9-13-77.   Let's now examine the next move that began on 9-13-77.   There is a significant top that occurs on June 22, 1979.  This top is 648 days from the  9-13-77 low.  Soybeans then dropped until April 2, 1980.  Compare the length of time the market rallied versus the time it was in decline.  648 days up and then 283 days down.  As you begin to orient your thinking toward motion around a circle, you will notice that 648 is 365 + 283.  This means that during the bull phase the earth travelled a complete cycle plus 283 days to reach the June 22, 1979 top.  The ensuing decline did not involve a complete cycle instead lasting only 283 days.  The length of time up is once again the same length of time that the market drops.  The bull phase had an extra complete cycle of 365 days whereas the bear phase did not.  Once again this example illustrates how these market moves are so similar.  This truth is only apparent when viewed on the circle of 360 degrees. Using the tool of the circle, one can readily see that these dates are equally spaced!
Include description of 2004-2006 move where same dates on circle only in different order.  April 5, June 22, and September 12!!  Instead of 283 which is 81 less than 365 the length is 447 which is 81 over 365.  Then 811 days to 12-5-08 which is 81 over 730!
​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​Moreover, there is a truth that is even more significant buried in this example. We have seen how the number 283 is seen in both the bull and bear phase.  Removing a complete cycle (365 days) from the bull phase revealed that there were 283 degrees of time in each phase. You can also look at the measurement from the beginning of the move namely the 9-13-77 low.  From here to the $5.70 low is 931 days.   Subtract a complete cycle of 365 from the 931 days and the result is 566.  This means that the number 566 is involved in the TIME duration of the entire move between the two lows of September 13, 1977 and April 2, 1980.  But what's even more interesting is the revelation that the TIME of 566 is also seen in the PRICE.  The low of April 2, 1980 was made at $5.70 which is remarkably close to 566.  This shows how TIME defined where the market would turn in PRICE. The number 570 (2 x 285) was embedded in both time and pice during the entire move.  In other words "Time equals Price".  
​Now examine the actual PRICE where the market turned.   The 6-22-79 top was $8.59 and the 4-2-80 low was $5.70. This is a drop of 289 cents (very close to 283).   But what's more revealing is the fact that the actual price low of $5.70 is exactly twice 285.  This means that the price of $8.59 is 3 times 285.   Comparing these prices shows a 3/2 relationship.  The ratio of 3/2 has unique importance in music.  It defines the musical scale.

This explanation has now veered into one of the most sought after concepts that W.D. Gann ever talked about...... The Law of Vibration.​
