I have examined the broker’s statements and trades made by W.D. Gann during the month of April, 1933.
Cotton Account $8,136.29 Rubber Account $1,387.01 Grain Account $758.30 $10,281.60
During that time there was only one loss of $39.25, and the above profits are net after payment of broker’s commissions. There were other trades in cotton, rubber and stocks at the end of the month that had not been closed out, which showed profits. When the trading on the above account was started, the greatest risk taken was $800, or in other words, if the stop loss orders had been caught, the loss would have been $800.C.L.G
