Would a traditional GANN Follower typically use certain settings? Or would you say it's more like traders who use moving averages...meaning a short term trader might use a 8 and 13 EMA while a long term trader might use a 50 and 200 SMA?
Just interested in you perspective since you've used the indicator before.
