There are two quite different sides to Gann analysis, the deeply theoretical, seeking to understand the essence of the science behind Gann’s 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 Gann’s 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 Gann’s 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 Gann’s theories. For those seeking a solid, Master’s Degree level education in technical Gann analysis, we cannot recommend anything more highly than Ferrera’s works.
Ferrera has written detailed course on every angle of Gann’s work and provides a fast track into a deep understanding of each field of Gann’s work as well as advanced topics in technical analysis. He has works on cycles analysis, Gann’s Square of 9, Gann’s Mass Pressure Charts, one on risk management and Gann’s swing trading system, another on the details of Gann’s 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 Master’s degree in Gann and technical analysis.
W.D. Gann Works
W. D. Gann’s private courses represent the most important of all of Gann’s 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 Gann’s 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 Gann’s courses were initially collected and compiled by Dr. Baumring and Donald Mack in the 1980’s 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 couldn’t be further from the truth! Each of Gann’s “courses” were actually small, “sections” 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 1940’s and that he “called” 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 Gann’s death when purchased by Ed Lambert. For instance, there are pieces that Gann advertised in the 1950’s as “new” like his Master Mathematical Formula for Market Predictions, or his rare #3 Master Time Factor Course which were never included in his “Master Courses”, and similarly were never included with any of the Lambert Gann courses sold by Lambert or the Jones’ from the 60’s until now. So these “master” 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 Gann’s 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 Baumring’s 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 “supposed” collections of Gann’s writings as most are unauthorized, incomplete, and distorted representations of his work, and cannot be trusted. Our set it the most reliable set of Gann’s unadulterated and most important work available…
While W.D. Gann’s own original work is a critical element for any Gann researcher’s collection, most people will find Gann’s 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 Gann’s, without significant help by well-seasoned analysts and traders who have dedicated years to decoding and creating practical tools from Gann’s techniques. This is why there is a fundamental and valuable secondary market of works presenting and developing Gann’s 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.
Economic & Stock Market Forecasting W. D. Gann’s Science of Cyclical Periodicity Sequencing
Ferrera’s New Penetrating Breakthrough in Gann Analysis
By Daniel T. Ferrera
Mathematical science, which is the only real science that the entire civilized world has agreed upon, furnishes unmistakable proof of history repeating itself, and shows that the cycle theory, or harmonic analysis, is the only thing that we can rely upon to ascertain the future. My calculations are based on the cycle theory and on MATHEMATICAL SEQUENCES. History repeats itself.
— W. D. Gann
Economic and Stock Market Forecasting by Daniel T. Ferrera ( $2,495.00 )
Intent of Course
The intent of Ferrera’s new course is to present the logic and application of Gann’s science of Mathematical Sequences of periodic market patterns. Ferrera teaches how to use this Mathematical Sequencing in conjunction with Gann’s “cycle theory” in order to forecast the general economy, stock market, or individual stocks, by identifying the expected periodic sequences of market action coming in both the immediate and long-term future. Ferrera also provides a Key Options Strategy which generates high yield returns with extremely limited risk, allowing traders to take advantage of these forecasts for both intermediate-term and long-term trading. The course presents new material and a breakthrough insight into one of Gann’s very deepest levels of analysis, which to our knowledge, has never been clearly explained before this course.
The following chart shows REAL cycle forecasts given in Ferrera’s Outlooks based upon Gann’s 8/8/1908 Time Factor presented in this course:
Introduction & Overview
After seven long years of waiting since Dan Ferrera wrote his last course The Spirals of Growth and Decay, we are very happy to release his newest and latest work, Economic & Stock Market Forecasting, W. D. Gann’s Science of Cyclical Periodicity Sequencing! During these last years, while Ferrera’s interests have focused elsewhere, he has continued to write his General Outlooks, giving a forecast for the economic environment and general stock market for the upcoming year. These Outlooks have continued to be very popular, and have honed Dan’s analysis and forecasting abilities to a new level, leading him to a NEW BREAKTHROUGH in his understanding of Gann’s most complicated and secretive forecasting methodology, what we would call Cyclical Periodicity Sequencing.
In the Gann quotation above, note Gann’s mention of Mathematical Sequences, in connection with his cycle theory. This mathematical sequencing has long been considered one of the most mysterious and complicated elements of Gann’s work, and is essentially something so little understood, that almost no Gann expert even discusses it. The only other person, to our knowledge, who approached this topic was Dr. Jerome Baumring, in his Gann Harmony: The Law of Vibration course series, where he ongoingly emphasized the importance of understanding the difference between CYCLES vs. PERIODICITY! Ferrera’s earlier course, Wheels Within Wheels, The Art of Forecasting Financial Market Cycles, addressed the science of creating composite cycle models from underlying cyclic sine wave components, and his models have proved accurate over the past decade, with projections going out 100 years into the future. However, the study of PERIODICITY is something entirely different, and is a subject so misunderstood, that most people think it is just another word for cycles, leaving most Gann researchers unaware of this most important of his techniques.
Baumring defined Periodicity as “a sequence of events that occurs at a predetermined interval (cycle),” but he repeatedly emphasized that it was NOT just about finding and combining these underlying cycles, as so many analysts see as the summation of Gann’s cycle work. The interaction of Cycles and Periodicity is something far more complex and important than composite wave models. It is something more like the sequencing of wheels and gears in a clock, where the rotation of one brings a sequence of rotations of others, which at particular intervals bring about a set of actions, like the ringing of bells, or the movement and chirping of a Coo Coo clock. A Periodicity, being a “sequence of events,” is essentially a PATTERN that occurs over a period of time, and which recurs at various periods throughout history, mysteriously to most, but with an underlying logic seen by those who understand the SEQUENCING of the cyclic periods of such recurrences.
It is THIS science of the Mathematical Sequencing of Pattern Recurrence, in periodic cyclic intervals, with a stepwise logic and order to their recurrence that has been elaborated in this course with a level of clarity not previously presented in any other work. Standard cycle work merely scratches the surface of a far more important level of order defined by Periodicity. This periodic order is like a sort of DNA code, as Baumring taught, wherein a limited number of underlying building blocks (patterns) are sequenced together to define a higher order structure with a mathematical logic to it. Many traders who work with pattern recognition know that, for each year there will generally be a few matching years from the past which will model the current market action with great accuracy in price, time or both. Gann teaches to look back 10, 20, 40, 60, 90 and numerous other cyclic variables in the past, to try to identify the active cycle for the current period. But with so many variables and options, analysts either become confused, or create models that are too generalized due to averaging in too much data or using the wrong and inactive sequence segments.
Baumring used to emphasize, “you MUST match like with like!” You cannot match a pattern in a bear market periodicity with one in a Bull market sequence and expect the patterns to behave the same way. There is a precise logic that determines which of these specific cycles and repeating patterns will be active at any particular time, and without this, you will likely be matching apples with oranges. But when one knows which of the many Gann cycles have the highest probability of mirroring market patterning sequence for the current time period, one can develop various models of market action, using the most probably variances in patterning from similar repetitions of this sequence in the past. This is what Gann and Baumring really meant by “Pattern Recognition,” which goes far beyond just finding similarities in pattern formations, through understanding the logic of WHEN and WHY those formations will be sequentially occurring.
History does repeat itself, as Gann so rightly states, but the mathematical sequences that Gann referred to, which provide the KEY to show exactly HOW history repeats itself, have remained long hidden. In this course, Ferrera will unveil the logic behind Gann’s secret science of Cyclical Periodicity Sequencing, using numerous examples from over 220 years of Dow Jones stock market data, where he demonstrates again and again exactly HOW history repeats itself, and WHEN to expect which parts of these repetitions going forward in time. After digesting the material in this course, analysts will have the ability to create forecasts of the market in the same way Ferrera does himself for his Yearly Outlooks, and will understand a deep level of Gann’s teaching that has rarely been understood before. We have also included the full history of Ferrera’s Yearly Outlooks from 2008-2018 on the included disk, so that students can refer to them to see how exactly Ferrera goes from principle to application. These Outlooks alone still cost $500 in our catalog and are regularly purchased in bulk by those who desire a deep and serious study of ongoing forecasting applications. But only in this course is the methodology Ferrera uses to create these Outlooks explained.

Practical Applications & Options Strategies
In Ferrera’s earlier trading course, The Keys to Successful Speculation, he presents the fundamentals of trading: risk management, account management, position sizing, trade placement, swing determination, all the details every trader needs to know to trade successfully. However, that book was focused primarily on trading the underlying stocks or commodities, and it did not emphasize other strategic trading vehicles, like options. As the closing, application orientated section of this course, Ferrera has extended his presentation of trading strategies and vehicles to teach traders how to take advantage of the fantastic leverage and limited risk of options. He presents numerous approaches and strategies to apply to different situations, both short term and long term, for hedging long term positions, as well as for high yield speculative plays. The following Ferrera excerpt is from this new course:
It is my opinion that every serious trader should learn at least a few simple options strategies. Options are the one investment vehicle that offers the greatest leverage and upside reward potential with a limited amount of risk. Sure you can still lose money but that is the case with all financial vehicles. A major advantage to options is their flexibility and versatility. They can be conservative or very speculative depending on the rules of your strategy. Options allow you to customize your position to your specific set of circumstances.
You can protect or hedge a Long position in the market from a decline in prices.
You can protect or hedge a Short position in the market from an advance in prices.
You can prepare to buy a stock or commodity at a lower price.
You can prepare to sell a stock or commodity at a higher price.
You can position yourself for a big market move even when you don’t know which way prices will move.
You can benefit from a price rise or decline without incurring the cost of buying the stock outright or posting the minimum margin requirements.
Forecasting Individual Stocks
Though this study uses the Dow Jones Industrial Averages as the primary data set, mostly due to the 220 years of readily available historical data for it, the analysis and methodology applies equally to the analysis of any individual stock, commodity, or other market, as well as to any kind of business or economic data or cycle. W. D. Gann said the following of the relationship between forecasting the general market and the application to individual stocks:
You should not depend upon the Averages to forecast the trend of individual stocks. These Averages give you the general trend, and while many stocks will follow this average trend, you should figure out each stock individually and let its position on geometrical angles and time periods determine the different months in the year when the stock is likely to make many tops and bottoms. I am always glad to furnish these charts to students of my Course on Forecasting so that they may study the individual stocks and be convinced that the theory will work on an individual stock even better than it will work on the Averages. No man can study the cycles without being convinced that the time cycles do repeat at regular intervals and that it is possible to forecast future market movements.
— W. D. Gann
Within this material, the techniques, tools and information found to be useful in ascertaining the future outlook of the economy and stock market will be presented. Some techniques have already been discussed in other works, whereas other methods previously released may have given the reader the correct perspective, without developing the skills to put the viewpoint into practice. It is my personal belief, that both time and price exhibit cyclic behaviour. Once one uncovers the cyclic structure of past events presented within available data, the information can readily be utilized to make future projections of what likely lies ahead.
Many forecasters tend to over emphasize short-term events, projecting a potential influence forward in time, without any understanding of a larger cyclic view, the big picture vantage point. Therefore prior to making any predictions about the near term outlook, one must always step back and gain as broad a view as possible, allowing one to accurately judge to the best of their ability what is ahead. Personal experience has shown that it is only from this larger perspective that successful predictions can be divined. Short and intermediate term forecasts are only possible within the context of a much larger view. Emphasizing the smaller view is equivalent to being “penny wise and dollar foolish.”
In making my own forecasts, I have always relied on discerning the larger vantage point based upon a cyclic understanding of time as well as a structural understanding of price. The latter was fully disclosed in my course Spirals of Growth and Decay, Exposing the Underlying Structure of the Financial Markets. This combination allows me to both forecast the likely future with very good probability, and provides a second method of interpreting what is occurring NOW, in real time. In addition to my own discoveries, the works of W.D. Gann, Louise McWhirter, Professor Weston, J.M. Hurst, William C Garrett, Samuel Benner and others are utilized. No method of forecasting is infallible and thus the real objective in doing such work is to uncover a preponderance of evidence that reveal similar conclusions. Nobody expects perfection in weather forecasts and as such, none should expect anything different with regard to economic or financial forecasts.
Just as one wants to be forewarned of severe weather, such as: hurricanes, tornadoes, thunderstorms, floods, heavy snowfall, etc. so they can prepare, evacuate or avoid exposure to dangerous circumstances, the same intent can be applied to the economic environment. As W.D. Gann said in numerous materials, “Forewarned is forearmed.” Many of Gann’s forecasting secrets, specifically with regard to periodicity and history repeating, have been rediscovered here, and are presented in this material as a comprehensive, ready to apply method.

Data & Software Included with This Course
Included with this course is the complete monthly data for the Dow Jones Industrial Averages from 1790-2010, as well as the complete daily data from 1900-current. This data is given in Excel Spreadsheets, where researchers can easily make charts of any segments of this long history for analysis and pattern comparison. The can also be printed on paper or acetate for further research and comparison of historic patterns and periodicities.
We have also included with this course Ferrera Historical Outlooks: 2008 - 2018 (a $500 value for FREE) so that as you study the procedures taught here, you can also study 11 years of history of how Ferrera used these exact principles to create his own forecasts. There is nothing like practical application, and Ferrera’s Outlooks show how to walk through the logic of the principles and techniques presented in this course, in order to see the method and sequence of integrating them into a working forecast for the coming year. You can also validate the success that Ferrera has had using these techniques in predicting the major trends for each of the past 6 years.
Ferrera has also included some useful spreadsheets and tools from his past courses to help researchers with their various analysis and calculations related to this study. One program calculates any planetary position or relationship of planetary positions backwards and forwards in time, for various cycle to planetary alignment analysis. Another spreadsheet allows the user to create composite cycle models from as many as 18 underlying sine wave cycles, to model market action according to underlying summational waves. This provides an excellent means to analyze the underlying cyclic influences behind patterns, so as to adjust for variations in periodic patterns due to shorter term cycle phasing.

W. D. Gann’s Master Forecasting Course
Dow Jones Historical Charts 1790-2013 – 10-Year Sections
The intent of this course is to explain Gann's science of Mathematical Sequencing of periodic market patterns, and how it works in conjunction with Gann's "cycle theory", in order to forecast the general economy, stock market, or individual stocks, through identifying the periodic sequences of market action.
The course presents new material upon one of Gann's very deepest levels of analysis, which to our knowledge has never been so clearly and applicably presented in any other work prior to this.
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 Gann’s 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 Gann’s and are quite powerful, but are slightly different from Gann’s, 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 1000’s 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 1920’s through the 1970’s, 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 20’s. 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 90’s 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 Gann’s system of trading and market order. However, even further, Baumring rediscovered and elaborated the system of scientific cosmology at the root of Gann’s Law of Vibration. There is absolutely no other Gann teaching that goes anywhere near as deep as Baumring’s 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. Baumring’s 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 100’s) of books required to develop the foundations needed to understand Gann’s 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 “Numerical Astrophysics” 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 “best of the best” 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 Gann’s 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! Baumring’s 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, “If you only are looking to make money, don’t bother studying Gann, it’s too difficult. Simply study swing trading systems, risk management and options strategies, and you can make all the money you want to make.” (Note: we have excellent books on these alternatives…) 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 Gann’s 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.
