There are two quite different sides to Gann analysis, the deeply theoretical, seeking to understand the essence of the science behind Gannís 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 Gannís 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 Gannís 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 Gannís theories. For those seeking a solid, Masterís Degree level education in technical Gann analysis, we cannot recommend anything more highly than Ferreraís works.
Ferrera has written detailed course on every angle of Gannís work and provides a fast track into a deep understanding of each field of Gannís work as well as advanced topics in technical analysis. He has works on cycles analysis, Gannís Square of 9, Gannís Mass Pressure Charts, one on risk management and Gannís swing trading system, another on the details of Gannís 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 Masterís degree in Gann and technical analysis.
W.D. Gann Works
W. D. Gannís private courses represent the most important of all of Gannís 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 Gannís 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 Gannís courses were initially collected and compiled by Dr. Baumring and Donald Mack in the 1980ís 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 couldnít be further from the truth! Each of Gannís ďcoursesĒ were actually small, ďsectionsĒ 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 1940ís and that he ďcalledĒ 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 Gannís death when purchased by Ed Lambert. For instance, there are pieces that Gann advertised in the 1950ís as ďnewĒ like his Master Mathematical Formula for Market Predictions, or his rare #3 Master Time Factor Course which were never included in his ďMaster CoursesĒ, and similarly were never included with any of the Lambert Gann courses sold by Lambert or the Jonesí from the 60ís until now. So these ďmasterĒ 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 Gannís 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 Baumringís 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 ďsupposedĒ collections of Gannís writings as most are unauthorized, incomplete, and distorted representations of his work, and cannot be trusted. Our set it the most reliable set of Gannís unadulterated and most important work availableÖ
While W.D. Gannís own original work is a critical element for any Gann researcherís collection, most people will find Gannís 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 Gannís, without significant help by well-seasoned analysts and traders who have dedicated years to decoding and creating practical tools from Gannís techniques. This is why there is a fundamental and valuable secondary market of works presenting and developing Gannís 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.
Customer Feedback From Behind The Veil A Market Forecasting Course
Behind the Veil is the best stuff Sacred Science has ever published, by far! I think the material is underpriced, but please forget I said that… Alex is the new Dan Ferrera. He is a totally class act! Can't speak highly enough of him or his generosity!

While I'm working through the Pythagorean and geometric material, I went ahead and placed a trade using the octave point principle. The attached chart shows the simple logic I applied for a silver trade. I anticipated a turn on 5/12/10 based on the --/--/-- top and went short with $4K put options. I was early in entering the trade by one day but closed the trade today for a $12K profit. I'd say that more than tripled my investment in your book by using one of the tools mentioned. Just sharing the set-up with the members and dropping a quick note to thank you.

I resumed work with the Pythagorean harmonics and came up with the following turns since the Feb 5, 2010 low. I plotted every one of the signals the calculations came up with. Of the 31 signals, 10 were overlaps or close alignment of separate cycle harmonics. So, there were in effect 21 unique turn signals. Among them, 3 during early March to April could be considered ineffective; though I recall you mentioning that in a trending market this is normal and offers opportunity to buy dips, take profit, pyramid, etc.
Anyway, this chart struck me. It's the first time I was able to evidence by myself the grand symphony at play. I was awed at listening to the tune of even one of its instruments, the Sun. In your Intro you stated that, "... it is hoped that the reader will find... the stimuli towards a deep contemplation through which his or her own investigations may bear fruit," and that is what I walked away with. Again, thank you for sharing your insights and taking the time to walk us through them.

Alex’s book is astonishing!
JS, Budapest, Hungary
Congratulations on preparing a profoundly informative guide. The initial review seemed as though the best pieces of a collective ancient wisdom spoke to us with contemporary scientific and empirical evidence necessary to support its eternal thesis. The book’s metaphysical properties alone are worth bathing one’s intellect with every so often. It certainly is as spiritual as it is technical, and your message eloquently inspires not only how the two are related but how the later purely exists to catch a glimpse of the former as ‘an escapement through which the hidden mainspring of fate is steadily released.’
I am delighted at how concisely the key notes of this vast science are put together. I am equally appreciative of how well you have simplified the concepts into useable terms. I just wanted to thank you for sharing your insights with us.

Hello Dr. Goulden,
Just got my book yesterday, read it last night, and absolutely love the Goulden Gann Box indicator on Market Analyst.
On chart after chart I see the market respond to the nodal transmission lines. These harmonic charge point lines as you describe them in the book to me represent an order in the market not available to any other source or indicator.
What is great about this for me is that as soon as you have the first significant pivot point you can utilize this indicator to establish the reaction levels and when/if the trend resumes, you can monitor the strength of the resumed trend by observing the nodal transmission lines that price energy indicates.
Brand new here, but this material is great.
B.N. Birmingham, AL
Wow, what can I say other than thank you for sharing this information. I have studied Gann over 10 years and never before came close to anything like what you have shared here. If you would be interested in conducting seminars like Dr. Baumring, I would be very interested!

I am very excited about the course and its contents. Alex's work is really amazing! Thanks to Alex and Brad for letting me become a part of this community. This stuff is really cool!! Alex has given some great ideas and my head is spinning right now with 'germination energy’.
It’s weird how some analysis resonates with you and other stuff just doesn’t :-) It reminds me of a scene from "What the Bleep Do We Know" which is about the Indian scout who just can’t see the English ships anchored offshore, because he has never seen a ship and can’t relate to it or see it!! Of course, with the Indian chief's help he is finally able to see it because the Indian chief is able to present that information to him in terms of something he can relate to from his past experience.
That’s what a course like Behind The Veil is about, in some ways. The way Alex sees the markets and 'The Matrix' is totally different from what I see (or more appropriately don’t see - lol). But he can present it in on price charts with lines etc. and I can relate to that better. That’s why I think we can use the differences in perspectives/background that the people in this Forum have to our advantage, by helping each other see things that we would normally miss out on.

I wanted to post a chart that shows the application of the grid from Chapter 1. This is from the Australian Share Price Index futures contract. The lines for drawing it were the high of 2010 in April and the next major low on 21 May. I drew this box a few days after the May low and have been following the market using it ever since. I felt the best way to understand its usefulness was to watch a market unfold in real time.
You can see from the chart that the market has tracked the lines beautifully ever since. The next major top on 21 June (seasonal date) was right in time with the intersection of 3 lines. The 6 July low reversed on the D5 line at another intersection point. This week, on 10 August, it hit the circle, and today has suffered a big fall.
Thanks for the course and your great replies on the Forum.
TW, Maroubra, Australia
Thanks for the clarification. By the way, I have sent new posts for Alex and thanked him very sincerely. In fact, you are very correct indeed about Alex's metaphysical posts. They have helped me a lot. While I have comments on Alex and his metaphysical musings in some blogs but I must say, being an Indian having studied a little of Tantra, Advaita-Vedanta and other strands of Indian philosophy including Kashmir Saivism, his things do make sense.
The book is good for sure but even better is this forum. Without it and Alex's insightful posts my learning would not have been complete. I am really happy to have taken his course and the credit goes to you and Dr Alex. convey my deepest regards to him.
R.B. Calcutta, India
I have just read the book and my brain cell is still ricocheting in my skull. Fascinating stuff!
Thanks for a great book! Wow! What an eye opener!!!! Well presented and the only original ideas I’ve ever seen that have a good chance to make money. Almost of equal value is the Forum dialog, both from Alex and the members. It is very informative and Alex is to be commended for his valuable time and insights, as are the other members. Hats off to you guys writing to the forum-brilliant!!! Thanks a bunch!!!!! Overall, I give the whole thing and “A”… You did well…
LG, Sterling City, TX
The material is Excellent! Extremely well written! Very concise but not lacking in detail. The reader can really gain an understanding for how time and price interact and the geometric relationships that support the structure of a trend. The course is very fairly priced for the depth of material involved, much more so than other similar courses. Alex has been very generous with his time and his answers in the Forum are timely and detailed. This makes the course fee a real bargain and substantiates the value of the course many fold. As for the complexity of the material, like the ad on TV says, "Even a caveman can do it." The material may appear to be complex initially but it is so well written that it's easy to grasp and follow even if the reader is not familiar with the concepts. I look forward to more advanced material in the future!
FS, Foxboro, MA
I think Alex has a wonderful knowledge and I fell very privileged to be able to share it.
Just wanted to let you know that I did receive the book. I knew I would like this a lot. I already have Tons Brune’s book and works from Sheik Ahmad. I am looking forward to really going thru everything.
The material is more indicative of what I have in mind when ordering from Sacred Science. I like the new direction you are heading in. I also think the pricing was right on for me. If after evaluating it further, one can truly make accurate forecasts from it. Then indeed one could say the material is cheap.
For right now, even if I don't make any forecasts out of it, it was worth it!
WW, Hillsborough, NJ
This is some remarkable stuff, I must say! What is driving me nuts is how darn CLOSE I was to all of these themes over the years. It's been like having the ball on the 1 inch line and getting tackled before being able to break the plane......... that close but no cigar. It's amazing how many things I used to think had been a colossal waste of time turn out to have been not a waste at all! Rather than a nudge across the goal line, Goulden's material is like having Refrigerator Perry pick me up and hurl me thru the end-zone. This is superb material!
MF, Nova Scotia, Canada
I have received my copy of Behind The Veil and am enjoying it immensely!
Firstly I'd like to echo the comments of others in the Forum and say thank you for putting this amazing piece of work together. I am very excited to be studying it and to have this Forum to share ideas with others. I think the quality is first rate. When I read the excerpts you posted initially I thought it would be very hard to read, even though I loved the quotes. But I am actually finding that I resonate very well with what Alex is saying and have little difficulty in following him.
I think there are a number of techniques that are very applicable. My favorite at the moment are the Pythagorean time harmonics. For example, I have a time frame I use on the Soybean market of *** calendar days. Now I see that Alex is effectively using the same number but derives it through an entirely different method. This has given me a new perspective.
I definitely feel that the material is fairly priced for its value. I’ve done my initial study through Safety in the Market in Australia, and their courses are expensive. However, I feel this is fine, as it makes the purchaser put value on the materials. And the beauty of trading materials is that you can use the information to pay for the course.
I think Alex’s input to the Forum is nothing short of extraordinary. Please give him a big thank you from me. He has shared additional material to what he teaches in the book, and takes the time to answer each question in great detail. His generosity in doing so has made this an invaluable resource. I have noticed that a lot of the contributions seem to gravitate towards planetary stuff, which I guess is in the last part of the book that I haven’t studied yet. I suppose this is what everyone likes, and yet I’ve thought there was so much of value in the early part of the book.
I am enjoying the book immensely, although it will probably take me a bit longer to digest it than some of the people on the Forum who have already swallowed the lot by the looks of things!
TW, Maroubra, Australia
Thanks for sending me the course. I think the quality of the material is high. Again I have several of the recommended books and keep finding I have more, especially on numerology. The book is really helping me tie it all together. I do feel the course was fairly priced. The Online Forum is great and so is Alex and his responses. I think the biggest reason I bought the course was because of his background.
I am not having trouble understanding the concepts, they are clearly laid out in the book. I don't have a strong astro background, so the book is forcing me to grow and that was what I was looking for. I really like the theory behind the techniques. I have plenty of ways to get future turning points, but knowing the harmony / cycles behind the technique really makes this unique. This is the way I want to trade. Five out of five stars!
WW, Hillsborough, NJ
It has long time that I have been excited about learning new material. I really like it. The software is amazing and very helpful for someone who hasn't studied this material as extensively as others. Things are starting to click for me using this material.
J.D., St. Louis, MO
Alex, I'm quite impressed with the material you have put together but am even more impressed with all the time you have devoted to answering the profound questions from everyone in the Online Forum. The knowledge offered by you and all the participants has me in awe. I hope I can contribute some useful answers or inquiries as so many of the course participants have thus far. I look forward to enjoying so much more that you are planning to offer. Now I really know what Maharishi Mahesh Yogi meant when he said that wealth can be achieved by understanding the laws that govern creation and laws of nature. That's what the market is... a study of the impulses of consciousness and how those impulses manifest themselves.
FS, Foxboro, MA
The proposition that our Universe is a holographic construct implies that correspondences exist between all phenomena'?? Its' brain-cap poppin' stuff!
JE, Chicago, IL
I have just finished reading your book and I must thank you for you work and sharing this with us. It is an excellent piece of work which extremely concise and to the point.
D.S., Hong Kong
The book, I was expecting some large book of 200 pages or something for some reason, probably because in the past that seemed to be the norm so i am rather surprised but also relieved that it is explained in 90 pages. I have to really read it slowly and take in the but I must admit that I am over the moon with "Behind The Veil" and MA6 "Goulden Module" as I never believed that I could be so fortunate that you'd have MA6 and that you'd utilize it for the Goulden Module. Thanks again Brad and I’ll be on the lookout for any other Goulden book plus I’d like to thank you also for the book list as there is a lot of other books that I’d like to eventually get as well.
I think the course is very original. The squaring of price and time without scaling the chart is a new take and I think it’s interesting. The vector projections again are useful as are the Pythagorean time harmonics and the octave point, and the number vibration of the natal chart is certainly original as well. I think that it is value for the money in the respect that it certainly makes you think while also giving methods which will be useful.
DR, Madrid, Spain
I must say a big THANK YOU for drawing my attention to this course. It (along with the comments by Mr Goulden on the forum) really shows there's a solid knowledge behind it, of the kind that I suspected for some time now, but had difficulty in finding the appropriate sources for getting deeper into, without dispersing energy by going into every possible (interesting and fascinating) direction. I am even more thrilled for the upcoming Book 2 and 3!
I have very much enjoyed your book and am looking forward to expanding my knowledge in these areas, which I am very interested in, and to applying your methods to the markets.
RA, Austin, TX
I very much enjoyed and am still enjoying "Behind The Veil", and I find the forum very useful for sharing ideas and learning with the group. The manifestation template and Goulden fan lines are extremely powerful in their own right. I'm frequently seeing these indicators reinforcing on multiple vectors, so they obviously are tapping into the market’s underlying structure.
SW, Amsterdam, Netherlands
Hi Alex, thanks very much for the book. I think it’s a unique take on Gann style techniques and for me at least it has really helped me to think of what Gann was trying to tell us in a new way.
DR, Madrid, Spain
Dr Goulden's book has a combination of specific applications along with the basis in theory which has helped me crystallize a lot of what I have studied over the years.
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 Gannís 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 Gannís and are quite powerful, but are slightly different from Gannís, 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 1000ís 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 1920ís through the 1970ís, 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 20ís. 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 90ís 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 Gannís system of trading and market order. However, even further, Baumring rediscovered and elaborated the system of scientific cosmology at the root of Gannís Law of Vibration. There is absolutely no other Gann teaching that goes anywhere near as deep as Baumringís 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. Baumringís 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 100ís) of books required to develop the foundations needed to understand Gannís 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 ďNumerical AstrophysicsĒ 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 ďbest of the bestĒ 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 Gannís 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! Baumringís 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, ďIf you only are looking to make money, donít bother studying Gann, itís too difficult. Simply study swing trading systems, risk management and options strategies, and you can make all the money you want to make.Ē (Note: we have excellent books on these alternativesÖ) 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 Gannís 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.
