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.
A Market Forecast of the S&P500 Index From July 12th 2001
Based Upon Projections using W.D. Gann's Square of Nine Calculator
By Daniel T. Ferrera
On June 18th & 26th, Dan sent along some S&P projections for July 12th. Now that it is July 12th we are posting the results of the projection.
Below you will find Dan's original email containing the analysis, which was the answer to a student's question. Below that, you will find a screenshot of July 12 S&P, to see how it turned out. The projection was made using techniques included in Ferrera's course The Gann Pyramid, Square of Nine Essentials.

Because the Square of Nine is a "Natural Squares Calculator", and Gann himself said to watch the natural squares of numbers in both price and time, I give you the following future date to observe as a learning exercise.
Here are some natural squares of numbers (days, weeks & months) all hitting 7/12/01
1024 days from 9/22/98 top (this is the top in between the 8/31 & 10/2 double bottom)
1089 days from 7/19/98 top prior to the 1st 20% correction in 10yrs. Russian currency crisis.
1156 days from 5/13/98 top
1369 days from 10/12/97 top top before the Asian currency mini crash
2704 days from 2/15/94 top
3969 days from 8/30/90 low
4624 days from 11/13/88 low
7056 days from 3/18/82 low
26,244 days from 9/4/1929 top ( We are 72 years (1/2 the sqr. of 12) from 1929, i.e the 18-year cycle)
16 weeks from 3/22/01 low
144 weeks from 10/18/98 low Russian currency crisis and Long Term Capital bailout
169 weeks from 4/22/98 top this is where most indexes topped in 1998, i.e. Small Cap, Mid Cap, Transports, etc.
196 weeks from 10/12/97 top before the Asian currency mini crash
225 weeks from 3/20/97 top
576 weeks from 7/1990 top
1849 weeks from 2/1966 top ( This one also matches that 18-year cycle)
3600 weeks from 7/1932 all time low
We are also 36 months from the 7/98 top, 81 months from the 10/94 low and 324 months from the 7/1974 top
Also 6^2 or 36 years back gives us the 18-year cycle again.
July 12th should be a Major Low! Also, this particular day has the potential of being a huge down day or mini crash. This is not trading advice, just a learning exercise for course owners.
There is also a Total Eclipse on 6/21/01. Take a look at the planetary aspects to the eclipse point on July 12th. I would also suggest, that you look at this in relation to the NASDAQ natal chart and the NYSE natal chart. Both give indications that July 12th & 13th are interesting days in relation to both the eclipse and the natal charts. To get you started, notice that on July 12th & 13th that the conjunction of Mercury and Jupiter take places on the Eclipse point of 0-Cancer.
Thanks for the S&P500 5/22/01 market example. It certainly is fascinating. But I am not clear about how the various cycle values to add are determined.
For example we have 1 and 1/2 cycles added to the 60 degrees in this example. I see where the 60 degrees came from but not the 1 and 1/2 cycles :
"The sqr root of 1081 = 32.878 + 3.333 (1 and 1/2 cycles + 60-deg for the Sun) = 36.21 ^2 = 1311.28 "
On the next one the 26 degrees is again clear but the 3/4 of a cycle is not. Wouldn't 1 and 1/2 cycles be just as appropriate.
"The root of 1207 = 34.742 + 1.644 (3/4 of a cycle or 270-deg + 26-deg for the Sun) = 36.386 ^2 = 1323.94"
It seems that we are looking at aspects to the price using this equation. The degrees of the Sun for important aspects are converted to their root values and added to the root of the price. The result is then squared. We then look for multiple confirmations. But then how do account for the various odd aspects that were used like 26 degrees and 17 degrees ? How would they be determined ahead of time ?
Perhaps the question is answered in your courses and I just need to study them. Please excuse me if that is true.
In any case if you have any more market examples please send them.

When you make projections to predict a resistance level, you should use lows and project up. If you are trying to calculate a support level, you use highs and project down. You are looking for price levels that are making negative aspects to the starting prices, i.e.. 45-deg, 90-deg. 135-deg, 180-deg, etc. These aspects can be on any ring of the square. Harmonious aspects are allowed,such as 60-deg, 120-deg, 240-deg but I prefer negative aspects for the majority. As you get closer to a date that is projected to be a turn, you limit your calculations based upon the current price levels that are in place. When working with previous tops to project support, you also factor in the longitude traveled by the Sun since the time of the turn. That is where I was getting numbers like 17-deg, 26-deg etc. These numbers where generated because the Sun had moved this amount from a past turn that I was using. I just converted them to roots by dividing them by 180-deg and then I added them to the normal square root aspects. For example, I am expecting a major stock market low on July 12th, 2001 followed by a rally into September. What would I do to come up with a likely support number for July 12th? In terms of the Square of Nine, I would do all of the following. Since I'm calculating support, I'm going to look at aspects to past highs. Here is a list for the S&P500:
3/24/00 1552.87 to July 12th 2001 the Sun moved 466-deg, which is 106 after rejecting the circle. 106/180 = 0.588 as a root
7/17/00 1517.32 to July 12th, the Sun moved 355-deg, which divided by 180 = 1.972 as a root
9/1/00 1530.09 to July 12th, the Sun moved 311-deg, which gives 1.7277 as a root
11/6/00 1438.46 to July 12th, the Sun moved 246-deg, which gives 1.366 as a root
1/31/01 1383.37 to July 12th, the Sun moved 158.5-deg, which gives 0.88 as a root
5/22/01 1315.93 to July 12th, the Sun moved 48.75-deg, which gives 0.2708 as a root.
Just taking straight aspects to these prices gives the following:
1167.09 is 135-deg to 1552.87
1170.71 is 225-deg to 1517.32
1164.73 is 180-deg to 1530.09
1168.15 is 45-deg to 1438.46
1169.86 is 180-deg to 1383.37
1174.88 is 360-deg to 1315.93
The Average of these 6 is (1167.09+1170.71+1164.73+1168.15+1169.86+1174.88)/6 = 1169.24
Setting "zero" as July 12th on the outer calendar wheel gives 165 on the 180-deg, which is also 1165. 172.50 comes out on 225-deg, which is also 1172.50. 1166 comes out on 45-deg and 1180 comes out on a 90-deg angle. The average of all these gives (1165+1172.5+1166+1180)/4 = 1170.875
This already tells me that the low is likely to be between 1169.24 and 1170.88. Now I'll just calculate the aspects taking the solar movement into consideration.
What we are going to do here is converting all the prices from our highs based on the distance the Sun has traveled since the time of the top to our next date. I will do these in the same order as above.
Now we just take straight aspects to these new prices which take the Sun into account and see what we get.
1178.33 is 270-deg to 1506.837
1172.67 is 225-deg to 1367.594
1165.84 is 135-deg to 1397.88
1160.49 is 270-deg to 1336.70
1177.43 is 360-deg to 1318.63
1173.34 is 45-deg to 1296.30
The Average of these 6 is (1178.33+1172.67+1165.84+1160.49+1177.43+1173.34)/6 = 1171.35
If I was asked to make a projection for July 12th 2001, I would say that we are likely to find support at 1170.49, which is the average of (1169.24+1170.88+1171.35)/3.
Also, looking at the last low to high swing we see that the S&P made a low at 1081 on 3/22/01 and a high of 1316 on 5/22/01/ The Range = 235 points. Divide by 8 gives 29.375 points per 8th. The 3/8ths support line comes out as (3 x 29.375 = 88.125 + 1081 = 1169.125) This is a 5/8ths decline from the 1316 top. If we measure from the higher bottom on 4/4/01 at 1092, we get a range of (1316 - 1092) = 224, divide by 8 gives 28 points per 8th. The 3/8ths line comes out as (3 x 28 = 84 + 1092 = 1176). The average support number of these two calculations comes out as (1169.125 + 1176)/2 = 1172.56, which is in line with our other calculations.
Using the angle projection technique from 4/4/01 (This is where the up-trend started), we get the following: The root of 1092 = 33.045. So we look for market turns every 33 days. July 12th is 99 days from April 4th ( 3 x 33 = 99). The 1 X 1 angle would cross the price of (root of 1092 = 33.045 + 3 = 36.045 re-square = 1299.27) 1299.27. We now have a range of (1299.27 - 1092) 207.27 points. Divide by 8 gives 25.909 per 8th. The 3/8ths angle support line crosses (3 x 25.909 = 77.727 + 1092 = 1169.73. If you so not understand why I added 3 to the root it was because every 33 days, we move 180-deg in price on the Square of Nine because the root of 1092 = 33. July 12th is 99 days from April 4th, which is the 3rd cycle of 33 days or 540-deg on the Square of Nine, i.e. (180+180+180 = 540). The 1X1 angle coming down from the 5/22/01 top would drop at the rate of 1.987 points per day (Root of 1316 = 36.276 minus 1 = 35.276, re-square = 1244.44. 1316- 1244.44 = 71.55 divided by 36-days = 1.987/day).
July 12th is 51 days from May 22nd. Multiplying 51 x 1.987 = 101.36. Therefore the 1 X 1 crosses (1316 - 101.36) 1214.63 on July 12th. The 60-deg angle would cross at 1180.88 (1.987 divided by 45 = 0.04415 price/deg ratio multiplied by 60-deg = 2.649 points/day X 51days = 135.116 pts subtracted from 1316 = 1180.88). This is a price angle that the market must regain to put it back in a more positive position. The 67.5 degree angle crosses at 1163.99 on July 12th. This would be the next support line if 1170.84 does not hold because 1164.73 is 180-deg to 1530.09 and 1165.84 is 135-deg to 1397.88 (Sun adjusted price) so we have 3 hits in this price area.
The mean of Five Geocentric on 7/12/01 is 209.025 or 29-Libra
The mean of Six Geocentric on 7/12/01 is 216.77 or 6-deg 46-min Scorpio
The Geocentric Cycle of Eight avg. on 7/12/01 is 182.177 or 2-deg 11-min Libra.
If you place the zero line on these outer circle degrees, you get:
1167.96 is on the 315-deg angle from 29-Libra
1170.89 is on the 315-deg angle from 6-deg 46-min Scorpio
1174.82 is on the 0-deg angle from 2-deg 11-min Libra
Average of these 3 is (1167.96 + 1170.89 + 1174.82)/3 = 1171.22, which matches our other calculations.
The mean of Five Heliocentric on 7/12/01 is 207.198 or 27-deg 11-min Libra.
The mean of Six Heliocentric on 7/12/01 is 219.22 or 9-deg 13-min Scorpio.
The Heliocentric Cycle of Eight avg. on 7/12/01 is 253.10 or 13-deg 6-min Sagittarius.
If you place the zero line on these outer circle degrees, you get:
1167.27 is on the 315-deg angle from 27-deg 11-min Libra.
1171.82 is on the 315-deg angle from 9-deg 13-min Scorpio.
1167.62 is on the 270-deg angle from 13-deg 6-min Sagittarius.
Average of these 3 is (1167.27 + 1171.82 + 1167.62)/3 = 1168.90, which again matches our other calculations. The average of these two (1171.22 + 1168.90)/2 = 1170.06, which supports the original calculations based on past highs.
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.
