From the "Famous" page 43 of Original edition of WD GANN'S " How to make Profits in commodities" Pub. by Lambert , 1942

TWENTY EIGHT VALUABLE RULES

1) Amount of capital to use: Divide your capital into 10 equal parts and never risk more than one tenth of your capital on any trade

2) Use stop loss orders. Always protect a trade when you make it with a stop loss order 1 to 3 cents, never more than 5 cents away, cotton 20 to 40, never more than 60 points away.

3)Never OVERTRADE . This would be violating your capital rules

4)Never let a profit run into a loss .......omiss...........raise your stop loss so that you will have no loss in capital......omiss......

5) Do not Buck the trend. Never buy or sell if you are not sure of the trend according to your charts and rules

6)When in doubt get out and don't get in when in doubt

7) Trade only active markets. Keep out of slow , dead ones.

8) Equal distribution of risk. Trade in 2 or 3 different commodities, if possible. Avoid tying up all your capital in any one commodity.
