Basic Tools - Rectangle
The Rectangle tool is one of the design primitives (circle, triangle) that provide 2 dimensional drawing , that is, they combine both price and time into one definitive shape. The Rectangle tool is the primitive of the move advance tools within the Gann analysis toolkit and is a principal foundation for combining both time and price. As this is a basic tool you are limited to simply defining space with this tool, but it can be used in conjunction with the other basic tools to provide a more powerful analysis.
