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.
On Baumring & Wave Mechanics and their relationship to Lorrie Bennett's Law Of Vibration Series
By William Bradstreet Stewart
With the history of the development of the series complete, I wanted to say a few words about the content of this text and its relationship to Baumring’s Courses and curriculum. As one of Baumring’s closest Private Students back in the 1980’s, I had the opportunity to study directly with him, as well as to work as his personal assistant and teaching assistant during the seminars and through the 5 years that I worked intensively with him before he died unexpectedly in 1992.
One of the very first assignments given to me was the exercise which is the subject of this text, the creation and study of theoretical wave mechanic charts. I spent over 100 hours making up sets of 4 and 6-wave theoreticals by hand, as Baumring would not allow us to do this work on the computer. (Note: my 2 sets of hand drawn theoreticals are included on the CD so you can see what it was like to do them by hand. Also, the 6-wave theoreticals are not presented in this text, so you can refer to them for an extended level of study.) I spent many hours studying these charts and learning to see how the underlying component waves generated the composite pattern, and learning to count these waves to find the underlying intervals in the market.
I was one of only a dozen or so students that I know of who actually did the wave mechanics exercise. There is a set of some computer generated partial versions that one student created which were included in one of the Baumring Course Manuals. Most students looked those over a bit and figured they understood what it was about, but very few really studied or researched this subject closely.
I can now say, after having carefully worked through Lorrie Bennett’s text during the last months of editing and development, that even I never really understood the depth and intention behind Baumring’s having us do this work. I understood a third to perhaps half of it, but the level that Lorrie has taken the work here goes FAR beyond anything that I ever considered. It has advanced my understanding of the subject and its importance significantly.
To my surprise, there is more depth and importance underlying this seemingly simple exercise than I had myself ever considered. I only now understand why Jerry said that this work was the foundational step underlying all the rest of the Gann research. I see it now, because Lorrie has explained clearly what Jerry would not, and has shown how to put it to use.
I have personally been so impressed with the quality and intelligence of Lorrie’s work that I have provided her with a copy of my Private Student Notes from the five years that I worked closely with Baumring. These notes probably represent the most detailed representation of Jerry’s ideas of anything there is, since I spent far more time with him than anyone else did, and as a Private Student was given a different level of information than was provided in the Seminars.
I have always intended to publish these Notes someday for the serious Baumring students, but they require a lot of work to type up my hard to read handwriting and to provide better diagrams. But I realize that a more direct route to my own full understanding of these complex notes is to share them with Lorrie, who is reviewing them very closely. I have agreed to let her pull out any examples she would like to use in her books to demonstrate that Baumring understood this work and to show what he was doing with many of his vague hints and references.
My further hope in this collaboration is that my Notes may provide Lorrie with further clues, leads and ideas than she found in Julius’ Notes and Al’s Notes, which will make her work deeper and more extended than it already is. Much of the work in my Notes would fall more into the Geometry segment of Gann, though there was lots of work in every branch of Gann Analysis. So, I hope my Notes provide many useful examples and further clues that Lorrie will decipher and share with us all.
It is this willingness to explain, where Jerry would only hint, that is the half the value of Lorrie’s work! The other half being the depth of her insights, which when combined with her openness and willingness to teach and share her ideas without veils or blinders, places her above all the Gann teachers that have preceded her.
Everyone who has seriously studied Gann or Baumring has been deeply frustrated at the cryptic and vague method of presentation and pedagogy that Gann teachers employ, and only the most patient, perseverant or simply bull-headed types ever really crack into the deep layers of this work. Most who have done that have committed at least 10, if not 20 or 30 years to their research.
This field truly is not a study for the impatient, or a quick fix for the those hoping to find an easy answer to the markets. But the added impairment to direct understanding of the subject overlaid by types like Gann, Bayer, Baumring and others, takes a highly difficult pursuit and makes it almost impossible.
Lorrie’s work is going to bring a massive revelation and reorientation to the field of Gann Analysis, erasing many misunderstandings and debunking many false theories and incorrect explanations. She will help to give Gann’s work a higher degree of respect in a financial world that has often disrespected and derided him. She will help to affirm the value of Baumring’s work that has also often been dismissed by those either too lazy to do the work or not smart enough to understand it.
Her approach to presenting this material is with clear logic and detailed explanations, illustrated by multiple examples. She then applies the techniques to multiple markets, creating REAL forecasts that can be studied, understood and traded by students. This is combined with an Online Classroom where Lorrie will be available ongoingly to answer questions and to explain ideas that are not being easily grasped, or to discuss trades as they setup, progress, and close out. This structure and hands-on approach creates a sort of apprenticeship program for her students, leading newcomers or old Gann students alike through each stage of the work.
Between these various pedagogical elements, we expect students of Lorrie’s series to progress to a higher level of Gann understanding than any group has in the past. Students of this series can expect to become as advanced than the best experts in the field, if not more so, since few, if any others, have made the discoveries that Lorrie has. And all this can be accomplished without the decades of time required and endless confusion others experienced, just to reach a small fraction of Lorrie’s understanding.
So, with this in mind, I encourage each reader to dedicate himself to this study and to take advantage of the unusual opportunity presenting itself here. Be sure to make good use of your access to Lorrie on the Online Forum, since this amenity may not be available forever. I am certain that there has never been a series of courses of this level of quality and depth on these subjects, and I have seen everything out there, so I am better equipped to judge than most.
I wish I had had the opportunity to begin my Gann studies 30 years ago with Lorrie rather than with Jerry, because I would have made far more progress, far more quickly, and with far less pain and frustration, than will everyone who gains their next levels of Gann understanding under Lorrie’s tutelage. I am almost envious of those who have the good fortune to begin their Gann studies here…
The same can also be said about Gann, if not more so, since Baumring helped to significantly penetrate Gann’s work, and provided a clearer pathway to understanding him than Gann himself would ever have shared. That path helped Lorrie to make faster headway, and now Lorrie will help all of us to do the same. So, we each have the opportunity to stand on the shoulders of those who have preceded us, and to gain an added level of benefit from the years of hard work and struggle that our predecessors went through.
This first book really is only an introduction to the larger insights that will be presented in the following volumes, unveiling Lorrie’s serious breakthrough into Gann. The first big revelation will come in the second book, Numbers, and will then expand through the third and fourth volumes. But this first work alone should provide a new level of understanding and application in a foundational field that is key to Gann Analysis, and will present it on a level beyond anything written on the subject before.
With this, I leave you at the doorway to a new and greater intellectual adventure than you have likely every engaged in before, but an adventure with a potential for accomplishment that has not been easily attained before.
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.
