There are two quite different sides to Gann analysis, the deeply theoretical, seeking to understand the essence of the science behind Gann’s market theory, the Law of Vibration, and the outright practical, looking for working tools and techniques that will help with applied trading. Though our greatest interest is in the cosmological theory behind Gann’s work, and the universe in general, we also specialize on the practical tools that traders need to specifically analyze and trade the markets. Some Gann experts excel at theory, while others are simply practical traders who are less focused on ideas in deference to trading techniques. This category will specifically focus upon the books and courses that provide very specific and applied tools from Gann’s toolbox used for real time trading. Some may explore deeper theoretical principles and some may just focus on pure trading tools, but this category will give working techniques to better fill the arsenal of any trader. We often recommend that new Gann students focus first on developing a practical trading ability, so that they can fund their future research with profits from their trades, and then also apply new insights from their theoretical study to their practical trading as they advance. This section will help to identify those most practical tools.
Dan Ferrera is one of the most respected market analysts and educators in the Gann field. For 20 years his works have been some of the most popular in our catalog. Aside from being one of the clearest interpreters of Gann, he also has produced his own advanced work, The Spirals of Growth & Decay, developed prior to his analysis and presentation of Gann’s theories. For those seeking a solid, Master’s Degree level education in technical Gann analysis, we cannot recommend anything more highly than Ferrera’s works.
Ferrera has written detailed course on every angle of Gann’s work and provides a fast track into a deep understanding of each field of Gann’s work as well as advanced topics in technical analysis. He has works on cycles analysis, Gann’s Square of 9, Gann’s Mass Pressure Charts, one on risk management and Gann’s swing trading system, another on the details of Gann’s complex geometrical and mathematical tools, one on astrological Bible interpretation, on teaching how to create yearly forecasts like his own yearly Outlooks, which give a prediction for each year, and more. If you are wanting to get a first taste of Gann and to save yourself years of hard work putting together his ideas, Ferrera is a perfect place to start, and walking through his series of fantastic is like getting a Master’s degree in Gann and technical analysis.
W.D. Gann Works
W. D. Gann’s private courses represent the most important of all of Gann’s writings, and go into much greater detail than his public book series, with which most people are only acquainted. They should be carefully studied in their full detail, as they contain the deepest insights into Gann’s theories ever presented. Stock traders must be sure to study all the commodity courses and vice versa, since Gann often put techniques that applied to all markets in only one or another course.
We stock the complete collection of the works of W.D. Gann, both his courses and books. Our set of Gann’s courses were initially collected and compiled by Dr. Baumring and Donald Mack in the 1980’s from dozens of original rare private course that were distributed by Gann throughout his career. Many people mistakenly think that Gann just wrote two courses called the Master Stock Course and Master Commodity Course. This couldn’t be further from the truth! Each of Gann’s “courses” were actually small, “sections” of a few pages to a few dozen pages, individually bound in paper folders. These various pieces were then compiled into different sets which he sold as various collections at different prices to different students over the decades. Some were more commonly sold to all students, while other were more secretive and sold only to close private students who often signed non-disclosure agreements, and paid exorbitantly high prices. It is these rarest pieces that make the difference between one collection and another.
The later courses Gann sold in the 1940’s and that he “called” the Master Courses were nothing but various compiled collections of these smaller pieces, and would vary according to who purchased them and what price they paid, and were never set until after Gann’s death when purchased by Ed Lambert. For instance, there are pieces that Gann advertised in the 1950’s as “new” like his Master Mathematical Formula for Market Predictions, or his rare #3 Master Time Factor Course which were never included in his “Master Courses”, and similarly were never included with any of the Lambert Gann courses sold by Lambert or the Jones’ from the 60’s until now. So these “master” courses are and have always been incomplete collections. Further, the Lambert Gann courses sold by Billy Jones through the turn of the century, were retyped and re-edited by Billy so that they did not provide the original unadulterated content that Gann produced, making them unreliable, edited versions. Our editions are exact facsimiles of the original copies sold by Gann, with no editing or adulteration of any kind.
Our 6 Volume set of Gann’s Collected Writings was further supplemented by new finds of rare pieces, like those mentioned above, rediscovered by the Institute over the past 30 years since Baumring’s death, and comprises the most complete and the only properly organized set of courses that are available. Gann has very particular sets that he sold only to his higher end clientele, placed in specific order to provide a particular logic to his work. Our collection maintains this order and includes a further collection of rare and historical courses, letters and private materials which make our collection the most complete and important collection available. Serious students of Gann should beware most “supposed” collections of Gann’s writings as most are unauthorized, incomplete, and distorted representations of his work, and cannot be trusted. Our set it the most reliable set of Gann’s unadulterated and most important work available…
While W.D. Gann’s own original work is a critical element for any Gann researcher’s collection, most people will find Gann’s work to be extremely vague, complicated and difficult to penetrate on their own. In our experience, it can take many years, if not decades for the ordinary analyst to, by themselves, digest and apply the deeper techniques of Gann’s, without significant help by well-seasoned analysts and traders who have dedicated years to decoding and creating practical tools from Gann’s techniques. This is why there is a fundamental and valuable secondary market of works presenting and developing Gann’s ideas, and making them accessible to any trader. We believe that the best teachers in this field are not competitors, but are fellow contributors to an ongoing field of research, and that their work is mutually supportive and will provide expanded insights when more material is understood.
We maintain the largest collection of secondary works on Gann Theory of anyone in the field. Many of these books we publish ourselves, and are written by top Gann experts and experienced Gann traders from across the world. However, we also review works written by other Gann experts across the field, and add to our catalog any material we consider to be of high quality and importance from the global community of Gann analysts. With our experience in the field, we are well qualified and to provide a peer review of these materials, so as to filter out the best quality work from that of a lower caliber, and then present these to our clientele who demand the highest standards. So any book or course that you find in this catalog can generally be considered to be of the upper echelon of works on Gann analysis. We have new authors submit their research to us ongoingly, so that we are always adding new items to our catalog with fresh insights, alternative techniques or new ideas. In this way we are able to save our clients significant wasted funds in exploring the territory at their own cost.
Recommended TitlesThe most important and impactful publications from the ICE library.
On the following list of Recommended Titles you will find our top selection of recommended ICE publications. These titles have proven to have made the most impact on the lives and livelihoods of our valued customers, and stand out as our best liked and most popular works. Many of these titles come from our Showcased and Important authors.
The first 3 books, Erikson's Trading with Selene's Chariot, Ferrera's Spirals of Growth & Decay and Bennett's Law of Vibration Gann Series are THE 3 BEST items in our catalog! It is not just that these are the most practical or important books, as we have many of those, but each of these contains an insight that is simply extraordinary. Each of these books presents a major, significant breakthrough in market knowledge, proving that there is a system of order and logic behind the markets that can be determined scientifically, and projected into the future.
As a result, these particular works provide specific applications based upon their original insights that is unequaled in any other book or course that we or anyone else publish on the markets. If anyone in academia ever discovered such principles of order within the markets, they would be awarded a Nobel Prize in Economics for their work. In our opinion, these principles are that substantial, but are unlikely to be accepted in academic circles due to a paradigm bias that resides within the materialistic orientation of mainstream science.
Sean Erikson: Selene’s Chariot
Selene's Chariot stands out as our most practical trading course, containing a set of tools that are theoretically profound in their implications while being so simple and practical that a teenager could use them. The first of these tools projects the exact slope of the forthcoming trend from the point of the last high or low, in advance! Using a tool based upon celestial mechanics, it is able to determine, within bars of the new trend, the exact slope angle of any and every trend in any and every market. This is one of the most simple and mind-blowing principles we have ever seen. It also demonstrates, without question, that celestial mechanics control market trends.
The Toolkit, much like an Andrews ML Line & Pitchfork, creates a channel which contains the full breadth of market movement during that swing. It provides two projected termination points for the move, the 1st of which stops the move 75% of the time, and the 2nd which catches most the rest. It also projects the likely time turning point for the next 2-3 turns. Trading with Selene's Chariot provides, hands down, the most useful set of trading tools for intraday to long term Swing Trading that we have seen. This is our #1 Trading Course! The Best of the Best!
This next course, Dan Ferrera's famous Spirals of Growth & Decay, is the single most brilliant and mind blowing general principle behind all market order that we have seen. It provides a structural map of all market price swing action, generating a sequence of counts in the upward, growth, and downward, decay movements of the markets that are always consistent. It is most similar to Elliot Wave theory, though several quantum levels of precision beyond it, with wave values that are mathematically specific and count sequences which are limited to definitive counts without random extensions.
This mathematical precision removes all subjectivity from the analysis as there are no random variants, only the underlying mathematical sequence of growth and decay within the market itself. It generates limited set of predetermined counts that EVERY market sequences through on EVERY time frame. Spirals is a simple and exquisitely beautiful universal ordering principle that undeniably exists behind the structure of ALL markets. This is Dan Ferrera's Magnum Opus, his Life Work, done before his work on Gann, and still his most important.
The technology is not as precisely focused as Selene's Chariot because its perspective is wider, more like a Map than an autodriving system that is reading and navigating the passing road. But this map tells you exactly where any market is and is going in it's growth and evolution, thereby alerting you to where the immanent turns and changes in the road (market) are coming. Just as the map and the navigator work together in a car, so do Selene's and Spirals work together in beautiful integration laying out the coming road, and giving the tools to navigate it.
Without a doubt this course is Daniel T. Ferrera's most unique and important published offering to the world of Market Forecasting and Analysis. Originally limited to only 50 copies, and 12 years in the making; The Spirals of Growth and Decay is what Dan considers to be the summation of his life's research, and the basis for all of the forecasting work that he does.
Dr. Lorrie V. Bennett: The Law of Vibration Series
Dr Lorrie Bennett's Law of Vibration Series is different from the last two recommendations, as it is not so much based upon one single brilliant insight or principle as it is an attempt to present the scientific mechanics of the entire system behind W. D. Gann's theory of the Law of Vibration. Dr. Bennett carries on and expands the earlier breakthrough work of Dr. Jerome Baumring, but Lorrie lays out the ideas that Baumring taught in a logical, clear and well presented thesis developed in great detail, with elaborate explanations, documentation and illustration. What Baumring only hinted at and refused to explain, Bennett lays bear for all to understand.
As such, Dr. Bennett's work is presented in a 4 Volume series, beginning with introductory material on Theoretical Wave Mechanics in the Law of Vibrations by the Patterns, followed by her major breakthroughs in Gann Analysis. This was inspired by her breaking some complex codes used by Gann to conceal his deeper secrets. Dr. Bennett spent 20 years cracking Gann's system and will be presenting every detail she can manage to explain through her 4 volume series.
Vol 2, Numbers will present the 13 Sacred Numbers behind Gann's Cycle and Number Theory. Vol 3, Planets will decode Gann's most mysterious book, The Tunnel Thru The Air, and will develop a new astronomical/astrological system, recovered from the Ancients which generates timing signals based upon advanced celestial mechanics, Solar physics, and astrological theory. Vol 4, Geometry will be the summational work which will tie it all together integrating the numerical and astronomical theory with the pure geometry of the markets.
This is THE MOST ADVANCED theoretical work that we have in our catalog, and explores in its study the breadth of knowledge that is known of the markets, providing a scientific basis to the causal and ordering principles behind the markets. It is the most cutting edge work we have and the strongest extension of the work of Dr. Baumring whcih is the core inspiration of this site. Dr. Bennett's 4 Volume Gann Series is the equivalent of a PhD program in the science behind the market.
This first in a four-part series lays the foundations for the understand of the science of W. D. Gann’s Law of Vibration.
A deep and valuable course, filled with information and tools that most analysts have never seen before. It is based upon an exercise originally presented by Dr. Jerome Baumring in the 1980’s as an essential first step in the development of an understanding of how underlying wave components, or cycles, are combined to produce a composite or summational wave.
TWO OF OUR MOST POPULAR & DEEPEST GANN RESEARCH TITLES
The next group of books represent some of our most popular, interesting and useful courses across our client base, so that anyone with an interest in these subjects will be sure to love these books.
First is Eric Penicka's Gann Science, which takes us back to Gann's first published interview in The Ticker, the piece that Gann is most famous from. Penicka approaches Gann's Theory from the principles discussed in The Ticker interview. Like Dr. Baumring and Dr. Bennett, Penicka explores the sciences and known references from Gann's time and reverse engineers a system of tools that may explain how Gann made his famous forecasts and traded 10,000% in 1 month.
Penicka presents a solid foundation in the sciences and perspective of Gann's time, then leads into the process by which trading tools are developed based upon the Periodic Table and Gann's explanation of the Law of Vibration. This is an excellent introductory course to Gann Analysis for someone new to the subject and takes one a long way into a deep science that few understand.
This course offers a solution to the Law of Vibration, as Gann originally presented it in his interview with Richard Wyckoff in The Ticker and Investment Digest, upon his first public appearance in 1909.
The author takes Gann's own words and tracks through the science of his day to uncover the meaning of Gann's explanation that "stocks are like atoms" and that they respond to "mathematical points of force.
This is the first public presentation of a clear theory of Gann’s use of the Periodic Table as the basis of the Law of Vibration applied to trading.
Ferrera's Path of Least Resistance is the most popular of Dan's Gann works. It provides the best analysis and explanation of Gann's mathematical and geometrical tools that we have seen. This work came as a result of Ferrera having done a complete reread of Gann's entire works, as he has initially done in his work for Mysteries of Gann Analysis. Dan took a deep dive in this second pass and pulled the curtain further off Gann's technical tools in this book that he has done before. That is why we consider this book THE TEXTBOOK of Gann Analysis.
The most comprehensive elaboration of W.D. Gann's most powerful technical trading tools.
It presents all of Gann's foundational mathematical and geometrical techniques expressed in his master calculators, angles, trend channels, squaring processes, pattern formations, spiral charts and much more, leading to the clear identification of profitable Trade Setups, important trend indications, and critical price/time culminations.
With 300 pages of detailed text, over 150 charts and diagrams, and 190 pages of the rarest Gann's supplementary material, we consider this 500 page treatise to be THE TEXTBOOK on Gann's geometrical techniques that no serious Gann analyst can afford to be without.
Roberts' Market Vibrations is our primary work that addresses that strategy of Position Trading. Gann was known to begin his students with Swing Trading, then move them on to Position trading when they were more advanced. This book presents the methodology of using leveraged position trading to generate large profits in accounts with small trading capital. If someone without much cash wants to learn to make a lot, this is the course which teaches how to do it.
Roberts presents a simplification of Gann Analysis, moving away from complex principles to simple and clear, but highly effective signal generating analysis as taught by Gann. The approaches uses options trading to at careful selected trade set up points, as defined by Gann to generate large returns averaging about 10 time investment. It focuses on a longer time period, about 3 months to 1 years, and intends to capture significant trends.
This is also an excellent course for beginners and intermediate traders who have not found the success or profit they seek, as a new approach to find the long sought success they desire.
This course provides a trading strategy that allows for large returns from low risk investments.
The strategy employs straight forward analytical techniques explained in Gann’s How to How to Make Profits in Commodities to identify high value trade setups which can be employed using highly leveraged options strategies to generate large but safe returns.
It does not require any prior Gann knowledge or any past trading experience and can be easily understood and applied by any trader, new or seasoned, to great effect with very little time or difficulty.
The Keys to Successful Speculation is another of Ferrera's most popular courses, this time focused specifically on trading. We have had more comments that people make money with this course than we have from any other over the years. This course presents everyone one needs to know to begin Swing Trading according to Gann's instructions. Ferrera refines and improves Gann's swing trading system creating new tools and signals to profitable swing trade any market and any time from from daytrading to long term investing.
He presents a master's class on Risk Management, THE most important aspect of trading that all too many do not understand. This is our most popular swing trading course, and is an excellent book for a beginner or one wanting to master the process of trading. This is the best place to start if you are not sure how to trade and want to master the mechanics.
This book presents a trading manual which will clearly teach anyone, including those with absolutely no prior knowledge of the markets, Gann, or forecasting in general, to successfully trade in any market, beginning with very limited capital, as little as a few thousand dollars.
This book is not esoteric, and is not focused on abstract analytical and theoretical principles, but is totally application orientated, specifically outlining a clear trading strategy incorporating all necessary principles of money management, charting, risk management, swing trading, signal generation, the use of options and much more.
Tim Walker's How to Trade Like W. D. Gann is another of our most popular swing trading courses. For those who cannot afford Ferrera's Keys or Erikson's Selene's Chariot will find another master class on swing trading presented in this excellent text. Walker takes Gann's course on his Mechanical Swing Trading Method, and follows Gann's trading for over 15 years from 1917 to 1932, through the most volatile markets in history.
Walker compiles the data for these years from old newspapers, then analyzes EVERY ONE of Gann's trades over the 15 years, showing the rules and application of his swing methodology applied to ever market environment. We have known traders who called this approach like an ATM machine, and this is the foundation upon which most other swing trading systems are built. A classic foundational work which should be studied by ALL traders.
A detailed analysis of the entire sequence of 322 trades from 1915-1931 presented in W.D. Gann's US Steel trading course, broken down into clear and concise rules for application in today's markets.
Walker dissects Gann's methodology, reveling deeper rules than are apparent in Gann's thin explanations in his original course.
This Gann Trading Course makes an intensive study of one of Gann's core lesson, called The Method for Trading the Overnight Chart. This lesson, is today published as part of the Mechanical Methods & Systems section of his Stock Market Course, and consists of 9 Rules followed by 15 years of trading examples on US Steel.
Our 2 Most Interesting & Unusual Translation Society Works
The next two books move away from the market subject and represent a couple of our most interesting works from our Translation Society.
Hans Kayser's masterpiece on the science of vibration, Textbook of Harmonics. If there were ever to be a TEXTBOOK on the Law of Vibration, this is it. There is no more fundamental and important source work in the science of harmonics and vibration, and in particular for the application to the markets, than Kayser's Textbook.
The first release in our project to translate the complete works of Hans Kayser.
The Textbook is THE MOST IMPORTANT WORK ON HARMONICS AND VIBRATION EVER WRITTEN!
This course is the equivalent to a Ph.D. in technical and historical harmonics and musicology, and there is no work ever created or conceived which touches the depth of knowledge and scientific application of this masterpiece!
The Natural Architecture is a mysterious cosmological text written and published by a French Secret Society, seeking to unify the complete sciences and esoteric philosophies and cosmologies of the ancient civilizations. This work takes numerical, geometric and astronomical riddles and principles and leads the reader through a tour of the deepest science of the esoteric tradition. There are many profound principle applied to markets and more in this deep and mysterious work.
A report by Petrus Talemarianus on the establishment of a "Golden Rule", according to the principles of Tantrism, Taoism, Pythagoreanism, and The Kabala, serving to fulfill the Laws of Universal Harmony and contributing to the accomplishment of the Great Work
Dr. Goulden takes a different approach to market analysis than most normal traders and educators. As a Cambridge educated scholar, Goulden is interested in deep principles and in exploring the foundations and implications of both trading techniques and the systems behind them. Before he was ever interested in the markets, he was asked by a friend why Gann’s tools and system are considered to be based upon metaphysical principles. He found this question intriguing and engaged in deep research in the field to answer this question. In this process he recreated a new set of tools based upon principles of Ancient Geometry and Celestial Mechanics. His tools are taken from the same sources as Gann’s and are quite powerful, but are slightly different from Gann’s, so that traders often use them as non-correlated cross-confirmation tools giving similar technical indications but from different perspectives.
His work is deep and has many layers of application and exploration that can be derived from it. His latest work on financial astrology, The Secrets of the Chronocrators, looks back to the astrological and astronomical systems of the ancients, reviving the more mathematical and technical astrology of the Great Masters of the medieval and prior times. Exploring principles like Spherical Astronomy and subtle movements of the Solar System, it seeks to develop a more advanced and scientific system of astrology determination as distinguished from the simpler forms that are generally known. It represents a new movement to re-explore the deeper scientific systems of the ancients that were lost in the press towards the development of a purely mechanical science.
Goulden is a superb educator and the most active Forum moderator that we have seen, with each of his Forums for his courses having 1000’s of posts with detailed questions and answers, deviling deeply into further and new fields of research beyond what is presented in his courses. His Online Forums serve as an advanced classroom where the details of his theories are discussed and elaborated and where students share their research and work with each other while overseen by Goulden, who continually presents new ideas and suggestions.
Hasbrouck Space and Time
One of our great historical discoveries is the Hasbrouck Space-Time Archives, a collection of rare research materials and forecast letters lost for over 30 years. This research develops a new theory of market influence based upon Solar Field Force Theory that was developed during the birth of the space age. The Hasbroucks were deeply connected to the esoteric and financial market communities from the 1920’s through the 1970’s, and contributed a new and recontextualized presentation of information taken from older original esoteric sources. They present a new field of study of solar phenomena, space weather prediction, earthquake prediction and market forecasting.
Muriel Hasbrouck was the inspiring force behind the research, which a foundation in Theosophy and trained as a classical pianist, she pursued an interest in original source works in astrology, through the turn of the 19th century into the early 20’s. She studies with greats like Walter Russell, Paul Foster Case, Aleister Crowley, and Israel Regardie within the esoteric fields. In the market realms she was close with many of the great analysts of her day like Edson Gould, Edward Dewey, Hamilton Bolton, SA Nelson, and more. She and her husband Louis produced a well-received forecasting letter for 30 years called Space Time Forecasting of Economic Trends, and are now quite famous for forecasting the exponential bull market of the 90’s and subsequent crash 50 years in advance! Their theories of Solar influence upon human and earthly experience through geomagnetic influences still lie at the cutting edge of scientific speculation.
Dr. Jerome Baumring
The work of Dr. Baumring is the core inspiration upon which this entire website is based. Baumring is the only known modern person to have cracked the code behind WD Gann’s system of trading and market order. However, even further, Baumring rediscovered and elaborated the system of scientific cosmology at the root of Gann’s Law of Vibration. There is absolutely no other Gann teaching that goes anywhere near as deep as Baumring’s work, or that even so much as attempts to approach the core ideas developed by Baumring. This study is for those who are interested in the mysteries behind the markets and the ordering system behind the universe itself. This is the study of cosmological theory on its deepest level, and of the interaction between man and the cosmos in which he lives, explored through an examination of causation and propagation of forces in the financial markets.
Dr. Baumring’s course program is not easy, and should not be approached without the willingness to commit at least a few years to the study. It is a long and detailed course, requiring the equivalent level of research and difficulty as most PhD programs, but in the field of Gann Analysis, which is not taught at any university. It requires many years of challenging work including the reading of many dozens (if not 100’s) of books required to develop the foundations needed to understand Gann’s approach to the markets. It is a very serious study that should only be approached by those willing to dedicate themselves to intense thinking and vast research across many fields of knowledge including: astronomy, biology, physics, finance, cycles, wave mechanics, geometry, mathematics, astrology, numerology, number theory, numerous esoteric and alternative scientific theories, and much, much more. Baumring summarized his system by the term “Numerical Astrophysics” in an attempt to give a modern name to an ancient theory that Gann himself had discovered.
Of all the analysts and traders we have known, the most advanced have all come to their understanding through following the lead of Dr. Baumring, or through having gone through a similar and parallel study and path of research to his. His teachings represent the “best of the best” of all material on Gann publicly available, but it will not give up its secrets to a mere superficial perusal. Baumring does not spell out simple explanations of how Gann’s techniques work, but rather leads his students into the depth of the science behind the system, while slowly elaborating how the techniques build upon this deeper science. For those seeking a fast path to the application of Gann exoteric trading principles, this is NOT it! Baumring’s work is not merely some market trading program, and indeed if approached this way may be found to be dissatisfactory.
Baumring himself often said to his students, “If you only are looking to make money, don’t bother studying Gann, it’s too difficult. Simply study swing trading systems, risk management and options strategies, and you can make all the money you want to make.” (Note: we have excellent books on these alternatives…) There are much easier and more direct methods to learn to effectively trade the markets than studying Gann. Those in more of a hurry to apply Gann’s work to trading may want to begin with the work of Ferrera or one of our most applied analysts, like Prandelli or Gordon Roberts, and save the Baumring work for a later time to explore at your leisure.
