Gannalyst software was developed by Bill Veoten back in 2000. It was popular among W.D. Gann traders. A trader can use .csv data, .pnr or text files to upload data into the software to plot chart. The software has almost all the available W.D. Gann indicator which is customizable with different scale inputs.
Gannalyst is for Windows operating system. The user can load metastock data or add real-time metastock data with this software. But metastock data are not free, it is a paid data service. Nevertheless, some trader still uses the software for their long-term trade analysis. Day trading with this software is a bit difficult, without real-time data feed.
For day trading with gann system, you can try our “Gann Intraday Pivot”. The product works with MetaTrader 4 trading platform on real-time data for free from your broker. You can directly trade from your chart. Plus it has wd gann square master grid chart layout which gets drawn & auto-scaled on the chart.

Showing Bitcoin (BTCUSD) Chart on Gannalyst:
To do so, you need to download the .csv file for bitcoin first. We have downloaded the .csv file from our Tickmill Forex Metatrader 4 Platform. You can download the software after opening a demo account.
Next is after installing the MetaTrader, log in your details. Then from symbol list show Bitcoin (BTC/USD) at the left of the market watch.
After that click on the “Tools” from the menu bar. From the Tools option click on “History Center”.
This will open the History Center for you, from where you need to first select the BTCUSD from instrument list, then select time frame & lastly click on the download button to start downloading.
Once the download get completed, you can view all historical data. Click on the “Export” button to save this data as .csv file.
You need to save or put this file in the “Gannalyst” installation folder. Here is the path for windows 10.
This PC > Local Disk(C:) > Program Files(x86) > Gannalyst Professiona 50 > SampleData
If you do not have the permission to save, then save it on Desktop then copy it to the said location.
Gannalyst Configuring CSV Data:
Gannalyst Pro supports both CSV & .pnr based data import. Here we are going to demonstrate how to import data from .csv file to load the chart on the software.
Setting Up the Excel File
You need to configure CSV data file to draw the chart. It is a hectic process. Because metatrader date formats are like this “2018.01.11” which gannalyst doesn’t supports.
So you need to change it to “2018/01/11” by removing the dots. You can do this with this formula below in microsoft excel spreadsheet.
Then you need to apply your ms excel skill to set up everything & finally save the .CSV file.
Setting Up Gannalyst Chart:
Now, create a new portfolio and select the .csv file from “Data File” tab section.
Just follow the step as shown on the screenshot. Next is to select data header. You will notice here we have added
Now select the right date format for time axis. Then click on “Test Data Read” to check if data are showing properly or not. If it is showing okay, then save the format.
Lastly, restart the software & click on the “BTCUSD60.csv” file from the data tab. Voila! you will see your chart is loading.
Using Gannalyst is a hectic job because you need to first collect data & then you have to import those data into Gannalyst chart system. Time-consuming no doubt. Plus it does not have an auto data update system. You can use metastock data but the live feed is paid and difficult to implement. The software has some basic features of WD Gann. How accurate it is, the only trader will know after testing it for a while in a live market.
If you are planning to trade with WD Gann grid layout of Gannalyst. Then we can request to test our WD Gann intraday pivot indicator which works on the live market with metatrader 4 auto data feed.
