Supported by the cosmological theory behind Gann’s work, we also specialize in practical tools needed to analyze and trade the markets.
This category will specifically focus upon the books and courses that provide very specific and applied tools from Gann’s toolbox used for real time trading.
The Golden Age of Technical Analysis extended from 1910 through 1960, when the greatest analysts lived and developed foundational principles.
Dr. Baumring selected the best works for his students, believing it best to study from the great masters.
Books by masters of the past have as much value for students today as they did back in their own day.
Gold Secrets Revealed
L. David Linsky's new book "The Key to Speculation in the Gold Market" reveals a method to accurately predict when Gold will make its tops and bottoms. Gold Market projections since 1974 have an accuracy of 90-99%, and insight into previously unknown cycles will allow any trader to capture Gold's primary swings for the rest of their life.
The Canon refers primarily to an ancient esoteric system of knowledge and cosmology encoded into temples, artifacts, art and monuments.
The Egyptians had a specific Canon to lay out the grids upon which they designed their art, and there are also canons of proportion used in the Renaissance, as well as by later artists, geometers and musicians.
In ancinet times architecture often incorporated esoteric knowledge almost lost today, but encoded secretly into many existing ancient monuments.
Geometric principles of divine proportion govern the complex forces underlying financial markets as well as architecture.
We have one of the largest collections of books on these subjects in the world.
Most people never give thought to the idea of a calendar and how we organise the passage of time.
The days of the weeks and months, and the number of months each year are important influences on our experience of reality.
We present many works on the exploration and meaning of time vis numerous calendar systems.
The vortex, a key element of 19th century aether physics, was critical to W.D. Gann’s market science and was taken up by great thinkers like Walter Russell and Edwin Babbitt.
Vortex and Toroidal energy theory provides a dynamic space-time model of energy fields from human and plants to planets, suns, solar systems, and galaxies.
W.D. Gann Works
We stock the complete collection of the works of W.D. Gann.
His private courses represent the most important of his writings, going into much greater detail than the public book series. Our 6 Volume set of Gann's Collected Writings includes supplementary rare source materials, and is the most reliable compliation of Gann's unadulterated vital work.
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 Gann’s system of trading and market order.
Baumring found and elaborated the system of scientific cosmology at the root of Gann’s Law of Vibration.
There is no other Gann teaching that gets close to the depth of Baumring’s work.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
We are pleased to support the continuing hard for of Catalin Plapcianu and look forward to sharing his imminent release at the earliest possible opportunity.
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.

This was a centerpiece of the British Journal of Astrology, 6 pages of each 16 page issue. Sepharial wrote the column for 22 years, and it represents the bulk of Sepharial's work including some of his best and most revealing writings.
The two fundamental elements of reality are space and time, and of the markets price and time.
Gann always said that Time is the most important variable.
If you know exactly WHEN to place your trades, when the market will turn, top, bottom, react or breakout, you will be able to trade or invest with great precision.
Scott dedicated 7 years to analyze 100 years of Dow Jones data to decode the causative effect of planetary influences.
He analyzed the background energetic effects of astrological elements to project influences. His methods need NO prior astrological knowledge nor the use of a horoscope to trade the Global Index, Stock, Futures and FOREX markets.
Rudolf Steiner, founder of the Waldorf Schools, developed Anthroposophy, a science based on psychic perception of hidden elements in nature and reality.
Olive Whicher and George Adams extended projective geometry into a study of spiritual to material spaces.
Students of Gann find invaluable insights into Steiner's system, as taught by Dr. Baumring.
There are many important non English Language esoteric and scientific works which we have in our archives but have not, as yet, been translated into English.
Some important books in this section have already been translated by our Translation Society, and we intend to translate others in the future.
Magick in the Western Esoteric tradition represents a Western equivalent to the internal training systems that are found in Eastern traditions, but is focused on the development of human powers and abilities.
These include mastery of physical, emotional and mental bodies, control over the elements and development of psychic perception and influence.
Kayser, the greatest scholar of harmonic science, was far ahead of his time, penetrating the depths of ancient esoteric Pythagorean Tradition to present a universal Law of Vibration.
His "Textbook of Harmonics" provides the most valuable insight into Gann’s Law of Vibration of any resource.
We have so far translated four of his works into English.
We may be indebted to Ancient Greece, but Greek knowledge derived from Ancient Egypt, and Hermes Trismegistus, the Thrice Great Hermes is the Greek name of Thoth, the Egyptian God of Knowledge.
Hermetic teachings were first translated into Western languages by Ficino at the dawn of the Renaissance, forming the inspiration for modern esotericism.
