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.
The Number Twelve Studies in Astrological Bible Interpretation
An Excerpt from the Course
By Daniel Ferrera
The following article is a sample section from the book Studies In Astrological Bible Interpretation, by Daniel Ferrera available through the Institute of CosmoEconomics.
Studies in Astrological Bible Interpretation by Daniel T. Ferrera ( $75.00 )
The number 12 appears several times in the Bible, i.e., the twelve tribes of Israel, the twelve disciples of Christ, twelve stones, twelve princes, etc. It is my belief that these represent the twelve signs of the zodiac: Aries, Taurus, Gemini, Cancer, Leo, Virgo, Libra, Scorpio, Sagittarius, Capricorn, Aquarius and Pisces.
The number twelve is symbolic of the creation of the universe as it represents the division or fractionating of unity (God) into twelve individual distinct vibrations or tones. This is most readily seen in music. If you take a string instrument, much in the same manner that Pythagorus did with the monochord, you will find that there are exactly 12 notes or tones before the series repeats. All repeats or octaves are related to the original note or vibration by powers of 2. That is to say that if you take a note and double its vibration frequency or cut it in half you will manifest exactly the same note in a higher or lower octave respectively.
The notes have been named: a, a-sharp, b, c, c-sharp, d, d-sharp, e, f, f-sharp, g, g-sharp in chromatic fashion. If I was trying to teach music, I would have included flats instead of making the notes all sharps but this is not important as the vibration or tone is the same. For example, c-flat is the same sound or note as b. Now that we know that there are twelve and only twelve notes we can start to see or imagine the process of creation as a fundamental division from unity into 12 unique qualities.
These fundamental qualities can also vibrate at faster or slower frequencies through the powers of 2 or duality. This is similar in concept to water existing as a gas, liquid, or solid based upon temperature. “In the beginning, when God created the heavens and the earth, the earth was a formless wasteland”. First, God said “Let there be light” and this created (1) “day” & (2) “night”. Then God created the (3) earth and the (4) Sea. (5) Let the earth bring forth vegetation, (6) Lights in the sky for signs and seasons. (7) Then he creates two great lights, the greater to govern the day, (8) the lesser to govern the night. (9) Let the water teem with an abundance of living creatures. (10) Birds in the sky. (11) Let the earth bring forth-living creatures. (12) Let us make man in our own image, after our likeness. God created man in his image; in the divine image he created him; male and female he created them.
In the book of Genesis, we learn that all the fundamentals of creation form as they become defined out of the formless abyss of totality. We learn that definitions are only possible from the division into polar opposites. For example, how can you define light without darkness, good without evil, male without female, water without earth, sound without silence, hot without cold, etc.? Therefore, creation is made possible by dividing (powers of 2) a fundamental into two diametrically opposed qualities that allows for the comprehension of both through the existence of its opposite even though they sprang forth from the same source.
If we take white light as a model of creation, we can see that colors result from dividing the white light representing unity into multiple colors by shining it through a prism. This process divides the white light into three main colors symbolic of the trinity of Father, Son, Holy Spirit or Red, Blue and Green. Black is the absence of light or color, in other words, white light is completely absorbed by the darkness and no colors are reflected back. From the three colors red, blue and green, all other color sensations can be made.
So in this simple example of white light, we can see how unity was divided into individual unique qualities. Because white light can not exist without its opposite (darkness) black, we have the first duality or polar opposite from a common undefined source. Red, Blue and Green light are created when they are divided out from the unity or oneness they experience together as white light.
The speed of light is considered as one of the universal constants. It moves about 299,792.5 kilometers per second, or 186,282.4 miles per second. However, if you use nautical miles, which equal 1-minute of latitude at the earth’s equator. The speed of light travels 161,803.4 nautical miles per second, which is equal to the Golden ratio Phi or 1.618034. This ratio occurs in all types of life forms and growth processes. Mathematically, Phi is the division of something into two unequal parts, in such a way that the lesser is to the greater as the greater is to the whole. An interesting Biblical relationship to Phi is the number of the Beast 666.
First, let’s calculate phi. Phi is equal to the square root of 5 (diagonal of a one by two rectangle), which is equal to 2.2360679775. Next we add 1 which increases the number to 3.2360679775. The next step is to divide by 2, which equals 1.61803398875. If we divide Phi by two again (the musical octave) we get 0.8090169943749. Now here is where it gets interesting. If you take the sine of 666, you get negative -0.8090169943749 and multiplying this by 2 (musical octave) equals –1.61803398875! For anyone that needs a little refresher course, the sine function gives the ratio of the opposite side of a given angle in a right triangle to the hypotenuse. Also remember that Phi is calculated from the hypotenuse of a 1 by 2 rectangle. From this mathematical exercise, it appears that the Beast is the exact opposite process of Phi, where Phi represents growth, light and life and negative Phi represents decay, darkness and death.
Getting back to the number 12, 144 equals the square of 12, i.e. 12 x 12. We know that there are 24 hours in a day, which is divided into 12 hours of day and 12 hours of night. There are 60-minutes in an hour and 60 times 24 = 1440 (The 12 tribes of Israel is 144,000). Twenty-four equals two times twelve, which is the musical octave of 12 and is represented in the 24 elders, seated around the throne of God. The apparent declination of the sun is zero at the Vernal and Autumnal equinoxes and reaches its maximum declination on the summer solstice at +24-degrees. The minimum declination is reached on the winter solstice at negative 24-degrees.
The numbers 1, 2 and 3 are all prime numbers and are symbolic of creation through the holy trinity. The number 12 would be reduced in numerology as 1+2=3, which means that the number 12 is also symbolic of the trinity. According to the rules of music vibration, we know that octaves of the fundamental vibration are created through multiplication or division from the number two.
Two times twelve is 24 and half of 12 is 6. It is interesting to note that all prime numbers greater than 3 (the original trinity of prime numbers) are properties of the number six. The formula for creating prime numbers is 6n + 1 where n is any number and + 1 is symbolic of unity or the original cause. For example: 6*2 = 12 and 12 – 1 is 11 and 12 + 1 is 13 and 11 and 13 are prime numbers. 6 *3 is 18 and 18 – 1 is 17 and 18 + 1 is 19 and both 17 and 19 are prime numbers.
In Genesis, God creates Adam, the first man, which most likely represents the first sign of the zodiac, Aries. Aries is a masculine fire sign ruled by Mars ♂, which uses the astrological glyph of a male. Eve is created from Adam's rib (symbolic of a division from unity and opposites from a common source, i.e. male-female) and is the second person created by God. The second sign of the zodiac is Taurus, a feminine sign ruled by Venus ♀, which has the glyph of a woman as its symbol.
Next we learn that Adam and Eve had relations and that Eve conceived and bore Cain and Abel. The third sign of the zodiac is Gemini, the twins, which is ruled by Mercury. Gemini is a dual sign and is symbolically portrayed in the story of Abel, a good man and keeper of sheep, who was respected by God and his brother Cain, a tiller of the ground who murders his brother. This story gives us the first three signs of the zodiac: Adam (♈︎), Eve (♉︎), Cain & Abel (♊︎).
It is interesting to note that in Genesis, chapter 5, Generations of Adam to Noah, that Cain and Abel do not appear in Adam’s genealogy, even though it appears that these were his first children. I believe that Genesis, verse 26 of chapter 1 contains the creation of the zodiac, where God says “Let us make man in our image, after our likeness”. Verse 27: “God created man in his image; in the divine image he created him; male and female he created them”. In verse 26, we find God talking in plural form “let us”, “in our image” and this likely refers to the creation of the entire zodiac. We later learn in Genesis chapter 5, that Adam has a son “in his own image, after his likeness” at the age of 130 years.
Looking at the zodiac in terms of planetary rulers, we find that the next sign ruled by Mars is Scorpio (the ancients also called this sign the Eagle) at 210-degrees of the circle. This sign also has Mars’s nature and is in my opinion the birthplace of Seth. In other words, Adam represents a cycle that starts with Mars in Aries and Seth is a cycle that starts with Mars in Scorpio and that is why they writer used the term “in his own image, after his likeness”. Since we know that Adam was 130 years old when Seth was born at 210 degrees of the zodiac, we can divide 210 by 130 in order to determine how long the length of a year is. Converting 210 degrees to minutes (multiply by 60) is 12,600 minutes in arc. Note that this value occurs often in the book of Revelations where it is used for days: chapters 11 verse 3 “I will commission my two witnesses to prophesy for those twelve hundred and sixty days, wearing sackcloth”.
This shows us that minutes are used and not degrees in calculating biblical days. 1260 minutes divided by 130 is equal to 96’ 55.3846” or 1° 36’ 55” and this is equal to one year in the Bible. Note that in the book of Ezekiel, we learn that the Lord appoints a year for a day. One month is therefore one twelfth or 8’ 4.615” and for a day we divide this value by 30 and find 16.154” seconds of arc. Therefore, to locate the birthplaces of the generations of Adam, we simply multiply the given years by 1° 36’ 55” and we can find the places in the zodiac where they begin and die.
Before beginning any calculations, we must turn the value of 1° 36’ 55” into seconds of arc and obtain 5815.3846”. The log of 5815.3846 is 3.7645784 and this is our fixed value for a year. Genesis chapter 5 verse 3 tells us that the whole lifetime of Adam was 930 years, then he died. The log of 930 is 2.9684829. Adding this to our fixed value for a year (3.7645784) gives 6.7330613; the inverse log of this figure is 5408307” seconds. Divide by 60 to convert to minutes is 90138’ 20”. Divide again by 60 to get the degrees which is 1502° 18’ 20” from Adams birth at 0° Aries to his death.
Removing the 4 circles of 360° leaves us with 62° 18’ 20” which means that Adams death is at 2° 18’ 20” in Gemini. I will give the births and deaths of the generations of Adam through Noah but I will not show the math involved, as you should be able to work it out yourself from the above explanation. It is also interesting that Cain and Abel do not show up in this part of Genesis, which gives the generations (revolutions) of Adam.
Shem, Ham & Japhet are born at 23°33’13” ♐︎ when Noah is 500 years old, Genesis 5 verse 32.
Note: that the Bible does not let us know the birth or death of the women. Therefore, these persons do not represent cycles.
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.
