As a financial industry professional, author Alexander Straker has been eating, living and breathing technical analysis, cash flow management algorithms, market research and strategy development for the majority of his life. In his youth, Straker was recognised as a child prodigy in music, so aside from his financial career, he has university qualifications and vast experience in music and education. As a parallel side career, he has been an active working musician and educator all his life. He also lectured in a professional capacity for governmentregistered subjects in the financial planning industry, and taught music in schools. Certainly, an interesting and useful mix for a Gann researcher.
One of Straker’s early university lecturers started talking about the construction proportions of ancient architecture in his music lectures at university. Wondering why exactly he did this, Straker went and asked him. You can probably imagine where that answer led...Discovering the ancient mysteries and ‘Gann science’ so early in his life led to his thoroughly researching Gann’s legacy along with the broader harmonic sciences for over 30 years,
Through this long journey, the one thing Straker constantly asked himself was ‘Why’? This intention lead to his setting very high standards in questioning, calculating, exploring, and seeking out the mathematical and geometric proof for the harmonic science & principles in action in all markets universally.
With Straker’s methods, precision is accomplished by the application of symmetry, ancient geometry and mathematics to the financial markets. There are astronomical concepts which are important to his teaching, but these are only relevant to the Gann's methods in Book 2, and will not be presented until Book 3 of The Universal Golden Keys Series
In Straker’s case it has never been good enough to accept that tools ‘just work’. He has pushed the boundaries further than most would dare in an effort get to an understanding of root principles of the material being studied. In particular, his most intriguing accomplishment was in finally cracking the scaling dilemma that has bamboozled the best of them for 100 yeas!
The rock solid, fully mathbased insights Straker has uncovered are quietly, but surely, becoming recognised amongst fellow researchers as a ‘pathway of mathematical truth’ that greatly contributes to the current body of ‘Harmonic science’ (see testimonials).
Fellow ICE author and colleague of Straker’s, Sean Erikson, is raving about the pendulum motion system, and Sean is one of those people who usually runs at top speed the other way if someone offers him a trading course! He's finished with reading at this point in his career and is only interested in writing. However, when he saw Straker's application of pendulum motion and circular squaring, he considered it one of the most original and unusual concepts he had ever seen:
"For those of you who might not know me, I’m a retired fund manager that wrote a book for ICE under a pseudonym, sharing some of the best tools I’ve come up with in my 3+ decades of professional trading. You can imagine my surprise when I was contacted out of the blue by an Australian guy who saw the initial sales blurb, and wanted to let me know two things: First, what my real name was, and second, the core method behind my techniques.
We had a nice chat, and I came away very impressed with Alex. This is one sharp dude we’re talking about here. Over time, Alex and I became friends, and he sent me a copy of his upcoming Golden Keys book for some feedback.≈
Ideas and theories are great, and you’ll find tons of them in here. So, know that you’ll be inspired. But what really grabbed me, and the reason you want this, is because of what Alex started talking in the section on pendulum motion. He could have chopped everything else out, and just focused on pendulum motion and circular scales, and I’d have been all over this book just for that.
I haven’t seen this particular concept discussed anywhere else, and trust me, I’ve seen everything else. If you’re a trader interested in scaling, natural law, or geometry, you want to get your hands on that book!
All the rest is great too, don’t get me wrong. But holy crap! That part is huge! I’ve already thought of like 10 ways to use that information with my own stuff, and I can’t remember another time that happened after reading a trading book. Good stuff! Go Alex!"

The applications themselves are primarily based upon the principles of physics, ancient geometry, symmetry, and cycles. This comprehensive system of scaling, with its methods and tools was developed and refined over 30 years of research, trading and professional management.
This release of Straker’s work represents the first full exposure of this significant breakthrough in the physics behind market action. It presents a stunning and detailed masterclass in chart scaling, the first step for all geometric work in the markets. The pendulum motion principle relate leads to Gnomic resolution and pentagonal growth structures.
Deep mathematical reasons are exposed for why the pricetime scale must be set with particular mathematical relationships in order to achieve precise results. Book 1: Pendulum Motion lays out the tools and techniques that are more appropriate to use with circlebased scales, an original discovery of Straker's. Book 2: Golden Speed will specifically focus upon square scaling as used by W. D. Gann explaining how the tools and techniques that Gann used MUST be based upon proper square scaling or they will not work.
In observing the general confusion that still exists around Gann’s methods, Straker has come to believe that a key breakthrough for Harmonic Science can be made by building a better understanding of the mathematical theory underpinning why these concepts work on a chart.
This is something Dr. Jerome Baumring clearly believed in from the educational legacy he left behind. Straker's work will answer many questions both for Baumring and Gann students, and will provide a massive reset in the Gann world which will bring the effectiveness of Gann's tools to a new, higher standard.
The Universal Golden Keys Series is comprised of 2 initial Volumes, Book 1: Pendulum Motion and Book 2: Golden Speed. A 3rd volume incorporating astronomical and planetary elements into these prior systems will follow later this year or next.
Unlike many of our series, you are NOT required to purchase Book 1 before Book 2. You may purchase whichever Volume you would prefer to begin with. The first two volumes were written as standalone works presenting two completely different theoretical frameworks and applications that are not interdependent. Book 1 is based upon Circular Scaling via TimebyDegrees, while Book 2 based upon Square Scaling as used by W. D. Gann, presenting a new insight into the purpose of his scaling and its relation to the Golden Section. There is an extra discount if Volume 1 & Volume 2 are purchased together, so be sure to check for special pricing.
Book 1 of The Universal Golden Keys Series
Pendulum Motion, presents forecasting techniques built on a new principle of Circular Scaling, which to our knowledge has never been presented before other than as a basic concept. It uses a fascinating method of charting via timebydegrees to plot the market according to the parameters of a circular scale using rotational mechanics, upon which all activity is based. Using Circular Scaling provides the key to accessing Pendulum Motion, which is a new breakthrough method of its own, and is NOT something that would be considered traditional Gann analysis. This is a completely new and original idea developed by the author.

Book 2 of The Universal Golden Keys Series
Golden Speed presents a whole new way to view Gann’s geometric work, beginning from principles of the root sciences involved. In Straker’s view these are the true roots of the ‘craft’ of Gann analysis. The goal is to present this with a clarity, elegance and practicality rarely seen in Gann explanations, while clearly tying Gann’s work to the Golden Mean. Straker provides evidence proving that the Golden Mean is crucial in achieving Gann’s pricetime squaring.
