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.
Traders World Article New Inroads to the Law of Vibration A Renaissance In Gann Research
An update and overview of current projects & developments at ICE including Hans Kayser & Gann, Hellenistic Astrology & The System of Hermes, Astrological Manuscripts & The Origins of Astro-Economic Translation Projects and Clubs, New Releases.
Many of you are unaware that at the present moment we stand at the brink of a new Renaissance in Gann research, and a radical breakthrough into the science of the Law of Vibration. Over the last 20 years, we have seen a progressive advancement of research into the theories of W.D. Gann, through the contributions of a number of modern authors and researchers, giving us a deeper insight into some of Gann’s most complex and esoteric tools, such as the Square of Nine, financial astrology, market geometry, cycle theory, and the like, but we have not yet seen a thorough and complete reformulation of Gann’s cosmological system, the Law of Vibration.
However, we feel that we are about to witness a quantum leap in this field of exploration due to a number of projects currently in development which I would like to share with you in this article, and to invite everyone interested to participate in. As any serious Gann researcher is well aware, the greatest difficulty in deciphering Gann is that an understanding of his theories necessitates a radical paradigm shift away from modern scientific and financial theory into the realm of the more esoteric sciences, which fall outside the field of socialized scholarship. This is primarily due to the fact that the necessary evidence to definitively substantiate these theories, while extant, has never been accessible to general public or scholarly community, primarily as a result of language barriers, as the relevant source material is not to be found in English, but in German, Latin, Arabic, Greek and Sanskrit.
Hans Kayser's Textbook of Harmonics
This leads to our first and most exciting project, the translation of Hans Kayser’s magnum opus on Pythagorean harmonics, Lehrbuch Der Harmonik, or Textboook of Harmonics. Some of you are probably familiar with the only work of Kayser’s that has been translated into English, Akroasis: A Theory of World Harmonics, which is an expansion of the introduction of Lehrbuch giving a non-technical, philosophical presentation of Kayser’s theories of harmonics, but almost no one has seen the 800 page technical presentation, which includes 500 diagrams, many of which are almost exact replicas of Gann’s various calculators and tools.
After 10 years of seeking a way to have this work properly translated, we were extremely fortunate to find an angel contributor who offered to bankroll the first phase of the translation of this masterpiece, and a further fortunate windfall led us to arrange to have Joscelyn Godwin, Professor of Musicology at Colgate University, author of The Harmony of the Spheres: A Sourcebook of the Pythagorean Tradition in Music, and respected translator of numerous works in the fields of Musicology, Hermetics, Alchemy, and the Esoteric Tradition, in collaboration with his son Ariel, translate the text. Ariel is handling the details of the translation under the guidance and oversight of his father, and the quality and accuracy of the work thus far is superlative. We were also fortunate to connect with Kayser’s only living student, Dr. Sigmund Levarie, who has agreed to review the work and to assure that the translation adheres to the highest standards of Kayser’s school.
In order to give a quick example of the applicability of this work to the field of Gann research, I have included several samples from the 500 diagrams which will look quite familiar to Gann students.
Figure 1 shows a circular diagram with “Angles by Frequencies” replicating Gann’s 360 Degree Calculator extracted from a dozen page presentation on the process of converting rectilinear coordinates to polar coordinates and designating the various qualitative harmonic values of the locations within the circular matrix.
Figure 2 is our familiar Square of Nine, including the cardinal and fixed crosses, about which Gann only ever wrote one paragraph, but which is explained in dozens of pages of detail in Kayser’s work. Since Kayser is developing the science of the relationship of universal harmonics to physical and psychical manifestation, his presentation gives the only explanation we have ever seen as to how and why the Square of Nine operates on a cosmological level.
Figure 3 illustrates some of the process whereby which Kayser begins to break down and analyze the Square of Nine into its psychical elements showing how the axes determine qualitative values within the harmonic grid.
Figure 4 should be familiar to analysts who use ellipses to measure market phenomena, yet this ellipse cross-correlates with the science of the harmonics as presented in the other calculators, allowing us, for the first time, to piece together the scientific logic interconnecting Gann’s abstract mathematical calculators.
Another extraordinary project which is finally nearing completion is Project Hindsight, the unveiling of the complete Greek system of astrology by Robert Schmidt of the Phaser Foundation. Schmidt has spent the last 15 years painstakingly translating the entire corpus of over 50 volumes of works on Hellenistic Astrology, and has essentially cracked the mathematical astrological system of the Ancient World, the distant source of all the Western astrology known today, and the origin of modern financial astrology. What was not developed by the Greeks themselves is likely to have come from Egypt and Babylonia, as it is well known that most Greek wisdom was passed to them through their initiates in the Egyptian Temple, such as Pythagoras. The Greek system was then passed on in part through the Arabs, to the Medieval and Renaissance astrologers, and finally, again only in part, to the modern world through astrologers well known to traders, like Alan Leo, Sepharial and the community of turn of the century astrologers to which Gann belonged.
However, what has been passed down to us over the past two millennia was altered at every step due to linguistic and conceptual errors, leaving us with merely a vague shadow of what existed in the distant past. The primary tenets of modern astrology all originated in the Hellenistic system, as Schmidt says:
“These included such basic matters as aspects, the concept of rulership, the meanings of the houses, transits to the natal chart, and synastry, all of which have remained defining for Western astrology to this day, as well as an abundance of other concepts and techniques that did not make it into the twentieth century.”
It is this “abundance of other concepts and techniques that did NOT make it into the 20th century” which will be of interest to financial astrologers and Gann researchers.
General consensus within the Gann community traces the primary development of financial astrology back to the 1920’s, the first time Gann mentions a planet is in a 1921 Forecasting Course, Professor Weston’s fascinating work also dates from 1921, and in the 1920’s Sepharial produced most of his Arcana or Keys to the markets. Gann’s Ticker Interview posits the Law of Vibration and natural philosophy as the basis of his system, but there has been considerable speculation as to whether Gann developed his astrological methods later in his career, or whether the Law of Vibration was a veil for the more esoteric and astrological work that he and his circle were practicing from the outset. Until recently, there was no evidence to clearly confirm either position.
New Gann Revelations
In the last few years, however, we have discovered a number of pieces of information which will bring about a serious reconsideration of this question. We’ve learned that Gann did study astrology before ever arriving on the East coast, and we discovered that there was an advanced and active circle of financial astrologers operating at the turn of the century. The first piece of evidence which brought this fact to our attention was the discovery of a unique and unknown set of onion-skin manuscripts on financial astrology written in 1902, 1914 and 1929. We are about to release these manuscripts along with the astro-finance writings of Gann, Sepharial, Weston, White and others in a new book called, The Earliest Financial Astrology Manuscripts. Most surprisingly, it is the 1902 manuscript that is the most advanced and important document on astro-finance that we have ever seen. There is no mention of an author of these documents, though they are marked “CONFIDENTIAL”, but the immediate impression one receives upon reading them is that they are written in the style and feeling of W. D. Gann, both in layout and word usage.
We immediately wondered whether these could possibly be Gann’s missing astrological courses which everyone has long dreamt might exist. The earliest manuscript explains many concepts that only the most advanced financial astrologers today even consider, such as: planetary days & hours, elevations, transits, directions, the parallel aspect, right ascension, the nodes of the moon and planets, the integration of geocentric and heliocentric astrology, orbs of aspects, mundane astrology, along with clear and precise rules of application for forecasting the markets with examples from the wheat and sugar markets. The other manuscripts outline systems using indicators, significators, the radix, transition points, a complete system of reading market trends according to the New Moon, and a section on price and volume trading pointers and the Volume Rule.
We have still been unable to determine whether or not these manuscripts were possibly written by Gann, but more recent discoveries have confirmed that they definitely come from someone within Gann’s immediate circle. Recently we uncovered another cache of the rarest of materials including a set of ellipses from Gann’s personal collection, with replicas of Bayer’s two ellipses, along with a third which is an integration of the prior two creating an analytical tool that takes ellipse research into another dimension.
New Acquisitions from Gann's Recommended Reading List
Along with these Gann Ellipses, we acquired a collection of the rarest books from Gann’s Recommended List, for which we had been searching for 20 years, and others for 30 years before us. Most of you are aware that there have been about 15 books from Gann’s famous list which have remained undiscovered, but with our recent release, 10 of them are now available, leaving only about 5 more elusive titles to dig up. We would like to put some serious attention upon finding these last 5 books, so that the Gann List is finally complete, and we encourage anyone with any of the rarest titles (email us if you’re not sure what they are), to contact us and help us complete this list, which we’ll make available to everyone. Hopefully this will inspire some new thought and insights within the Gann community as it has done for our research teams who have had a first look at this material.
Contained within this new find were clues to some of the questions asked above. First, regarding the manuscripts, we discovered in Fred White’s Guide To Astrology, one of the Gann List books written in 1901, a section on the conjoined use of heliocentric and geocentric astrology in the markets, which was directly copied into the 1902 manuscript. This implies either that White could be the author of the manuscripts, or that the author copied this one page section from White. In the 1914 document the author makes reference to his correspondences with Sepharial, so we know that the author and Sepharial were in contact. In another work edited by White, The Adept: Journal of American Astrology, there are articles by both Johndro and Professor Weston, so we know that White also knew them. We are further aware that Gann worked with Johndro, knew Sepharial, and used to fly his plane around the country to meet up with Elbert Benjamin, better known as C.C. Zain. It is not unlikely that he also knew Alan Leo, Fred White, and others from that very small circle in the early part of the century, since their books are included on his recommended reading list.
Another author from the Gann list, Gregorius' book The Master Key of Destiny we also uncovered, we’ve now learned was another financial astrologer, for in his 1924 book it mentions that “his service includes: Semi-Annual Stock, Bond and General Market Forecasts $250; Grain & Wheat Futures: A Reliable Guide to Fluctuations Of the Domestic Grain Market $250; Mundane Forecasts Giving Accurate Outlines of the Fluctuations to be Expected in International Trade, Finance & Events $250.” And $250 is a pretty weighty price tag for 1924, reminding me of Gann’s $5000 price tag for his courses in the 1940’s. Would it be any surprise if these two knew each other as well?
The conclusion we’re beginning to draw from this network of connections is that the financial forecasting community of the early 1900s was a tight knit community of individuals well known to each other and to some degree working together. This is not unlike today, where most everyone publicly participating in Gann research is somewhat aware of the other players, with many in personal contact, except that today there are considerably more players in the game. The difficulty in confirming and tracking these connections is that many of them were kept secret even in their day, and the documentation that proves it, if not altogether lost or destroyed, for the most part remains in private hands and is, sadly, unlikely to reach the public forum.
W.D. Gann & George Bayer
Another interesting connection, which is continually discussed, is that between Gann and George Bayer. With our discovery of the set of ellipses in Gann’s collection including the two Bayer ellipses, we uncovered a first thread of evidence that they certainly at least knew of each other. Since releasing the ellipses, one of our sources confirmed to us that he had seen evidence that Gann and Bayer simultaneously held anonymous memberships on the CBOT in 1936. The secretary of the exchange in 1936 possessed a log of memberships which included the hand-written names, addresses and phone numbers of both Gann and Bayer, and he remembered their meeting on the exchange. Sadly, with the death of this individual, these records have been lost, so we are unable to obtain any physical proof of these facts, so this information remains hearsay, but it is still worth consideration.
Interestingly, Figure 4 above, from Kayser’s Textbook, directly correlates with the third ellipse from the Gann collection, which further leads us to believe that the Kayser work outlines an interconnectedness between Gann’s spiral calculators, Law of Vibration, and numerical squares, as well as demonstrating that the ellipse theories are an inherent and essential part of this same harmonic ordering system. Gann himself never mentioned ellipses, yet Dr. Baumring was convinced that they were an integral key to his system, both from the perspective of elliptical cycles and their astronomical correspondences, and as geometric instruments measuring the market’s rotation into the z-plane of three-dimensional space. Kayser, we feel, provides the key to the correlation of these complex theories, and the extension of their application to the third-dimension, and beyond to the fourth and fifth dimensions.
Schmidt’s work, we think, will provide the mathematical elaboration of the astronomical and astrological system which is most closely aligned with Gann and his circle, and will provide the system of correspondences to understand the interrelation between cosmic order and living systems, like individuals, societies or markets. Schmidt states that, “the central Hellenistic hypothesis is that celestial events are expressions of the inner workings of the cosmic soul.” Schmidt’s elaboration of the science of the celestial events as expressions of the cosmic soul provides us not only with quantitative measurements of a physical universe, but with qualitative correlations to human consciousness, that element which translates cycles and planetary relationships to qualitative experiences like hope and fear. Similarly, Kayser’s elaboration of harmonics sees not only a system of physical or energetic vibration as a backdrop to physical manifestation, but also shows a psychical correlation demonstrating harmonic frequencies as qualitative elements of consciousness.
Kayser’s penetration into the subtle field of harmonics, equivalent to Faraday’s “mathematical points of force”, provides us with the keys to the dimensional transformations from the 3-dimensional world, to the deeper dimensions of the cosmic soul. Kayser was a neo-Pythagorean and the sources of his work lead us directly to the same origins that have inspired Schmidt. Pythagorean cosmology designates four primary categories, called the Quadrivium: Arithmetic, Music, Geometry and Astronomy. Kayser reveals the intricacies of the first three, Schmidt brings mastery to the last… and the first… and much in between, but together, these two systems should allow us to access the universal system of the Ancient World, which some would argue was more advanced than the scientific systems of modern academia. Besides the greater simplicity and universal integration of these ancient systems, they include the one essential element which has been almost altogether ignored by modern science: CONSCIOUSNESS! This ancient cosmology presents a unified field theory or superstring theory in which the strings themselves are consciousness, and wherein the mathematical relationships are actual psychical qualities of consciousness. This is the first time in two millennia that such access to the deepest secrets and technologies of the Ancient World has been available to anyone but initiates of the most esoteric mystery schools.
When I consider that many people pay thousands of dollars for college courses which teach them nothing they can’t find in any one of dozens of books in any library in the world, but balk at investing the equivalent to learn something that has never been available through academia for 2000 years, and which goes beyond the level of most modern PhDs, I can only think that it is simply due to not knowing that these wonderful alternatives are available. I hope this article will find interested ears amongst the Gann and market forecasting community, for in my experience, Gann researchers are amongst the largest majority of truly sincere scientists and seekers of universal truth. Our experience at Sacred Science Institute is that 80% of our sales, including all of our scientific and metaphysical books are from Gann students, without whom none of these materials would remain available to the rest world at all, due to complete lack of interest. My intention has been to express to you what is of incredibly significant interest and importance in these projects, and to hopefully elicit some support for their continuance.
Robert Schmidt’s Phaser Foundation is a non-profit organization, that has primarily been supported by a very small handful of contributors allowing him to just scrape along while completing his work. Now, with the completion of their projects, they hope and need to build a significant subscription list to support their publication and distribution. Their materials comprise two parts, first a 60 hour course on tape of Schmidt’s lectures, elaborating step by step and in precise detail the entire science of Hellenistic Astrology, to be followed up by two further more advanced tape series. I’m told this system will teach one to forecast specific events in an individual’s life down to the day, the process which also directly applies to the markets.
New Translations of Hellenistic Astrological Works
Project Hindsight will be releasing a 40 volume collection containing Schmidt’s new complete translations of the entire corpus of Hellenistic Astrological works, in exact order of necessary study, including explanatory footnotes and appendices, elaborating and interconnecting all of the source works into one unified system which correlates with the lecture series. These will be offered one volume at a time on a subscription basis, each volume being released every 4-6 weeks, at the very meager price of $35.00. Since they need to know how many copies to produce, they need those interested to subscribe ASAP so they are sure to print enough copies for everyone from the outset. I felt there would be many people in the Gann community who would jump to support this work, and I encourage all of you to visit their websites and sign up for the course and the subscription series. (www.projecthindsight.com and www.phaser.org) Their ultimate dream is to find an angel donor who would purchase and donate their estate to the Phaser Foundation, which they would like to turn into a research institute and learning center where conferences could be held, and where Schmidt would give public lectures. All donations to them are tax deductible, and traders can write off the costs of the courses and books as investment research and education. (I hope everyone realizes that you can do this with all of your market books and materials.)
We are currently about 2/3 the way through the translation of Kayser’s Textbook, and are in need of finding further funding to complete this project. We have discussed the most sensible way to complete this translation and make it available to the public and have several ideas which we would like to share. An idea suggested to us by our angel contributor was to form a translation club which would fund the completion of this book, as well as a number of further translations. Besides Lehrbuch, there are about a dozen further superb works written by Kayser going into more detailed specifics, such as architectural proportions, plant morphology, and the philosophy of harmonics, all which we feel would be of great value to Gann, cosmological and musical research. We also have access to a collection of Arabic astrological works, a number of which pertain specifically to commodity forecasting, and Schmidt agrees that with the completion of the Greek translations, the next step would be to translate the Arabic works, which he would be willing to oversee. We also have another collection of works in German by Eberhard Wortmann delineating the arithmetical, geometrical and harmonic code of the Platonic Academy as presented in Plato’s Timaeus and Republic, which would fill another gap in cosmological research and market analysis. All of these works are in our possession, and we have contacts with translators who would be able to complete these works quickly and accurately, if we can find the funding.
In order to further inspire the development of this Translation Club, our angel investor has offered to equally match funds with every dollar we are able to raise for the club. He suggests that if we could find just 20 people who would be willing to contribute $1000 a year to these projects, with his matching $20,000 we would be able to have all these translations complete and publicly available within the next couple years. Another suggestion is to have a lesser contribution for each specific book, possibly $500 which would allow each contributor have access to the translations electronically immediately as they are completed, and we would also create online research forums for each work, where all the supporters could communicate and work together in studying and applying the research. I know some will consider this expensive for access to one book, but considering the importance and rarity of the information, and the depth of the material, particularly compared to what standard college course cost, we feel it is not unreasonable. We do intend to release all these works in high quality, sown, signature editions when completed, but it may be 2-3 years before each book is edited into the final format needed for publication, so those who support the translation project will have access to this material years before the public community. Anyone interested in becoming a member of the Translation Club should email us for further details.
A New Trading Course from Daniel T. Ferrera
Finally, from a less theoretical and more applied perspective, Daniel T. Ferrera has just completed a new trading course new which we feel will be of the greatest interest to every individual seeking to trade the markets successfully, even with a small amount of capital, which probably includes just about everyone reading this magazine. Over the last 10 years, the most common question I’m asked by market students is, “What one book can I read that will teach me to trade successfully?” This is always a difficult question, for the truth is that there isn’t one, as most traders are sadly aware, so the best response I can give is to outline a study course of the best works that are available, which the researcher must then integrate into a trading strategy for himself. However, this situation is finally about to change with the release of Dan newest course, The Keys To Successful Speculation. Dan’s prior works have primarily focused upon uncovering the deeper and more complex, esoteric elements of Gann analysis, cycle theory, and the like. Yet Dan recognized that many students of this deeper analysis were blocked and confused when it came to developing successful applications of the more complex material. His new book, what he calls his “put up or shut up work”, takes a radically different approach than anything he has produced before.
The Keys to Successful Speculation presents the first fully intact trading manual, of which I’m aware, that 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, from stocks, to futures, to options, in any time frame, from day trading to long term trading, 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. For the first time ever I feel I can say with confidence that this course will provide all the necessary tools for any speculator to make consistent high percentage returns from the markets, without the need for any further material. At the same time it provides a consistent strategic logic upon which more advanced analysts can overlay their deeper market research to produce even more successful return streams.
Dan’s new course, The Keys To Successful Speculation, as well the above mentioned Earliest Financial Astrology Manuscripts, will both be available through Sacred Science Institute and Trader’s World by the time this magazine reaches readers. I do forewarn you that Dan has suggested that he may only release a limited number of these courses outside of his current students, so they may not be available forever. We truly hope that these new materials and projects will inspire a Renaissance within the Gann community, and will help bridge the gap between theoretical research and market application in a way that has not been done in the past.
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.
