Re: linear-izing the Gann wheel/Spike

"how do you square time with price"

I guess I don't, specifically. If price stops at say 1800, which can be 1800 days, weeks, or months, and I go to dividing that in half/half/half again in order to get a time frame close to where we are in time...I end up with 900, 450, 225, 112.5, 56.25 days, weeks, or months. That's some big time distances. If I do it the way I am describing, I'm going to have time lines at those points anyway. It might be interesting to highlight the points every 56.25 price square points. To me, the squaring time with price got real messy after you pick a few highs and lows to square.

In my opinion, squaring price doesn't work because you're squaring price it works because price works to the geometric lines that already exist there...as laid out.
