Position Trading
AstroEconomics
AstroEconomics
Position trading is an approach recommended by both Gann and Baumring, saying that there were maybe only about 4 good trades per year in any market. Markets would go into congestions of accumulation or distribution for years awaiting a new trend, and meanwhile one trades other markets. Gann taught the same principles on his higher level, saying that MOST money was always made in following a strong trend.
Baumring Reading List
Baumring Reading List
Baumring Reading List
Dr. Baumring's reading lists were very comprehensive, covering all areas of the markets, sciences and metaphysical fields. Baumring was an intensive scholar who read 1800 words a minute and had a photographic memory, thus extendinghis scope. Baumring's 10,000 volume library included around 500 books which he saw as core information.
Technical Analysis
Technical Analysis
Technical Analysis
Technical Analysis involves using technical tools and mathematical measurements in order to determine expected directional movements, reverses or changes in the market. Advanced forms of this technique use mathematical and scientific or geometric tools to project market action or forecast future movement, looking at elements of price, time and trend.
Weather Forecasting
Weather Forecasting
Weather Forecasting
Weather has a strong influence on the potential prices of crops, so Astrological weather forecasting was of great interest to market analysts. We publish George McCormack's Long Range Astro-weather Forecasting which is considered one of the better classics. A.J. Pearce also wrote some sections on weather forecasting which are classics.
Celestial Mechanics
Celestial Mechanics
Celestial Mechanics
Celestial Mechanics deals particularly with the motion of celestial bodies, especially the solar system, but also wider regions of cosmic space. The subject explores the relationships and processes of heavenly bodies, examining cycles of time, motions of celestial bodies, and the influences between cosmic and local forces.
Fractal Geometry
Fractal Geometry
Fractal Geometry
A branch of Chaos Theory, fractals are beautiful self-similar patterns mathematically generated from non-linear equations. Fractals apply directly to financial market phenomena, and time-periodic market charts show that similar patterns permeate each time level. Gann and Baumring saw common patterns foreshadowing coming events within consistent structure.
Number Theory
Number Theory
Number Theory
Esoteric and Pythagorean sciences love to play with the value and meaning of numbers, from the complex mathematical theories of the Platonists, via Fibonacci’s ideas, to number progressions, ratios, proportions, sequences, and chaos theory. We specialize in the overlap of numerical and esoteric systems positing a more integrated cosmology.

History’s most intriguing financial analyst, forecaster and trader, W. D. Gann produced a 10,000% return with a 93% success rate in an audited 1909 interview. Gann said his market theory was based upon the Law of Vibration, leading scholars and analysts on a 100 year intellectual quest deep into  theoretical physics, alternative science and esoteric philosophy, seeking to understand a cosmological ordering system linking the financial markets to the influences of natural science.
Our most popular author, Dan Ferrera is a master of making complicated ideas easy to apply. His 9 courses present KEY elements of Gann Theory & Technical Analysis including Time Cycles, the Square of 9, Periodicity, Price Structure, Swing Trading and Risk Management, providing advanced tools for the average trader. His popular Yearly Outlook provides a fascinating and accurate analysis of market action.

Dr. Lorrie Bennett is one of the only Gann experts to have cracked the Law of Vibration! After 20 years of grueling research she discovered a complex code in Gann's texts which led her to the full solution. Following in Baumring's footsteps, Dr. Bennett lays out the science behind the Law of Vibration in an intensive 4 Volume Advanced Series revealing the Patterns, Numbers, Planets & Geometry behind Gann's secret trading system.

Dr. Baumring is the only known person to have fully cracked W. D. Gann’s full Cosmological System! He reproduced Gann’s results, forecasting markets within 3 minutes of turning points. He extended Gann’s Law of Vibration into DNA Coding, Chaos Theory, & Topology, creating multi-dimensional, mathematical models of the markets, proving them to be a fully Deterministic System. The deepest Gann research sourcework ever compiled.

Cutting edge Space & Solar Researchers, Muriel & Louis Hasbrouck’s Space/Time Forecasting techniques are STILL more advanced than those of NASA or the current scientific community. The Hasbroucks produced 50 years of Market Forecasts with a 90% accuracy rate and were able to forecast Space Weather, Earthquakes & Geomagnetic Storms. Their advanced techniques develop a new Theory of Space Time Field Forces & Influence.

Sean Erikson, a trader and fund manager with 25 years’ experience, provides a set of powerful astro-tools for advanced swing trading based upon celestial mechanics. The key tool uses an astronomical component which consistently and beautifully predicts the angle of attack or slope of a forthcoming trend. This is combined with a simple astro-timing tool which indicates the next 1-3 turns out and a geometrical price projection tool which provides the two most probable price projections for each move.

The solution to Gann's Law of Vibration from the 1909 Ticker Interview. Penicka analyzes Gann’s exact words correlating them with the cutting edge science of Gann’s day to develop a system which identifies the “mathematical points of force” behind all market action. The Periodic Table of Elements determines a system of order based upon atomic structure which generates a master number set for each market defining its structure in price and time.
A Cambridge scholar who, intrigued by the challenge of Gann’s esoteric work created a powerful set of technical tools based upon principles of Ancient Geometry, Celestial Mechanics, and Pythagorean Harmonics, which project Price, Time & Trend with exact precision. His 2nd course applies the Secrets of Ancient Astrology to forecast market turns & trends more accurately than the best works on Financial Astrology preceding it.

Catalin Plapcianu Quantifying Market Activity through the Squaring
of Multidimensional Pricetime

About the Author

The Institute of Cosmological Economics is proud to support the advanced research of Catalin Plapcianu - an engineer, mathematician and market analyst who brings original and sophisticated insights to technical analysis through the integration of scientific and mathematical principles with the most refined elements of Gann analysis. He develops complex algorithms distilling advanced Gann insights into algorithmic logic which is then used to generate automated forecasting and trading systems.

Biography

Catalin Plapcianu is a native of Romania. His first academic accreditation was a Bachelor's degree in Structural Engineering from his homeland. Upon graduating, he relocated to Switzerland and completed a Masters qualification in International Business from Geneva's International University. After completing his Masters, he has maintained a basis of operations in Switzerland for some years while developing his interest and research in the financial markets, before returning to his home country where he now resides.

Preliminary Market Studies

His first exposure to the world of finance and markets was through fundamental analysis. Over the course of time he found that this approach to the markets did not fulfil his desire to understand and forecast future price movements. His natural propensity for engineering and mathematical modelling inevitably led him away from the world of fundamentals and into the more sophisticated mechanics of Technical Analysis. During this time, he received his membership in the STA and specialised in the work of Tom Demark and Trevor Neil, developing several research papers and technical indicators relating to their work.

With an established foundation in the mathematics and mechanics of technical analysis, he found that his natural intuitions and formative notions relating to market behavior were not adequately supported by technical analysis alone. He found himself seeking something deeper and even more powerful.

First Encounters with The Work of W.D. Gann

While studying materials in the STA, Plapcianu encountered some literature discussing the work of W.D. Gann and his spectacular results published in his famous 1909 Ticker Interview. Upon researching the legacy of the enigmatic Gann in greater detail, he realized that his intuitions of a deeper science behind the markets were correct. This breakthrough in his research lead him to an extensive search into understanding Gann’s real wisdom.  During this time Plapcianu undertook and an exhaustive analysis of Gann’s past trades and gained unforeseen insights into many of Gann's mathematical, Kabalistic and astrological theories.

Collaborating with The Institute of Cosmological Economics

His research into the deeper facets of Gann's legacy eventually led him to the lesser known Gann works housed within the Institute of Cosmological Economics.  He also studied the oeuvre of one of the leading Gann contemporaries, Daniel T. Ferrera, and various other historical sources within the ICE Catalog.  As his studies revealed deeper insights, his ability to engineer accurate and dependable indicators increased significantly. After several years, Plapcianu approached the Institute of Cosmological Economics with a market forecasting and timing technique that was to become his inaugural ICE Publication: Technical Analysis and Time Projection  - The Harmony of Mathematics and Nature.

Baumring Revelations

During the time of writing his first book, Plapcianu began a deep and dedicated study of the legacy of work of the most advanced scholar on the work of Gann  - Dr. Jerome Baumring.  This study set him on an 8-year journey into the deep mathematical, astronomical, scientific and esoteric concepts presented by Baumring leading far down the rabbit hole to the deepest levels of Gann analysis.

During this study, he would regularly hire professors in physics and mathematics to give him focused primer courses in various fields and specialties within physics and mathematics.  Plapcianu feels that he has unravelled 40% of Baumring’s work so far, and he continues his research into the refined field where Gann and the cutting edges of scientific theory coincide.

Breakthroughs & Proprietary Indicators

After several years of this hard, dedicated work, often engrossing 18 hours a day for many months at a time for years on end, Plapcianu broke through to a new and deeper level of understanding in the relationship of space/time geometry to market phenomena.

These hard earned insights have enhanced his technical and creative faculties and are the driving force behind a unique and highly sophisticated series of proprietary indicators to forecast market movements with even greater accuracy.

Some elements of these indicators have already been deployed on the Bloomberg system for large institutional clientele, but he was dissatisfied with the cost of the Bloomberg and other institutional systems, so began developing his own stand-alone App to run his algorithms.
This new series of indicators are currently being redeveloped on a new platform by Plapcianu himself, who has spent the last year learning to program C# so that he could program his algorithms in complete secrecy and with total control of all processes. We excitedly await the completion of Plapcianu’s App programming project.

Publications

The Trilogy – The Square, The Triangle, The Circle

Plapcianu’s latest offering will be presented in 3 volumes (only Volume 1 is currently available) and will reveal a new approach to analyzing and trading the markets.

All three volumes will be concerned firstly with defining, identifying and ranking turning points, and secondly, with their prediction.

This Trilogy is intended to be ranked increasingly in terms of difficulty. The notions presented in each sequential work will need to be well understood in order to pass on to the next, due to the interconnectivity between the parts.

In this three-part series, the author will systematically document the mathematical foundations of this system, which have never before been revealed, with irrefutable clarity.  The system will be documented and quantified theoretically and mechanically through a series of programmed algorithms.

Volume 1 – The Square

Plapcianu's Square presents, for the first time, the true meaning and mechanics of the Squaring of Price & Time. It provides proof that the financial markets are mathematically controlled and predictable.

The course demonstrates that all market movement can be categorized into only 9 possible binary cases that exist in any type of vibrational chart.

Related Reading:

Because “pivot” points in the market have 3 bars composing them, these 9 types will then be intersected with each other resulting in 81 possible cases, represented in a 9x9 grid called the Universal Swing Chart, which logically orders and defines every possible variation of market action. This chart provides an objective mathematical determination of the exact nature of price swings and pivot points, allowing the energetic balancing of price and time to be calculated through the Law of Conservation of Energy.

Once the swings and turning points are thus mathematically defined, they can be identified as conical transformations of the circle, and the calculation of acceleration and deceleration rates for each swing becomes possible. Four types of nonlinear distribution in the extent of a swing will be presented and applied to the projection of hyperbolic acceleration/deceleration curves, which dynamically mold the curvature of future market action.

These hyperbolic curves consistently identify and capture large tradable segments of sequential swings in any market, on any time frame, from minute to monthly.

The intent of this course is to present, for the first time, the true meaning and mechanics of the Squaring of Price & Time.

It will provide absolute proof that the financial markets are mathematically controlled and predictable.

It will demonstrate that ALL market movement can be categorized into only 9 possible binary cases that will exist in any type of vibrational chart. Because "pivot" points in the market have 3 bars composing them, these 9 types will then be intersected with each other, resulting in 81 possible cases, represented in a 9x9 grid called the Universal Swing Chart, which logically orders and defines every possible variation of market action.

Volumes 2 & 3 of Plapcianu’s Trilogy will be published in coming years...
