How to Make a Cycle Analysis. By Edward R. Dewey. Written in 1955 as a correspondence course, this how-to manual provides step-by-step instructions on all elements of cycle analysis, including how to identify, measure, isolate and evaluate cycles.
The most detailed cycle course ever written, by the founder of the Foundation For The Study of Cycles.
Horse Racing & Gambling
Many traders develop an interest in betting on horse races, since astrological and numerological factors apply to both fields.
For example, sports involve data on event time and participant biographical data like birthdates.
Gann studied works by Sepharial, whose Arcana & Keys focused on astro-numerological horse race betting.
Gann Analysis goes deeply into fields of history, economics, science, metaphysics, ancient civilizations, occultism, astrology, numerology, astronomy and time cycles.
Gann's Recommended Reading List of 90 titles laid a foundation extended by Baumring to over 500 titles,
We provide comprehensive resources on the deep principles of Gann's work.
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.
Swing Trading works with short to intermediate term swings, usually with time periods from a few days to weeks, following a general changing trend and trading in each direction.
Most systems consider position reversal, and try to trade short and long as the market changes direction.
Gann taught swing trading first, with its relatively easy methodology.
The wisdom teachings of the Egyptian "Thoth" (the Greek Hermes) were preserved in the Hermetic Arcana, translated from Greek by Ficino during the Renaissance.
These trace back to the likes of Pythagoras and Solon (Socrates’ teacher), filtering through many channels to become the basis of Western Philosophy, Science and Esoteric traditions.
Science of Vibration
W. D. Gann coined this term as a basis of his system of market forecasting. It explores theories of aether physics, vortex systems, and universal order as considered in the late 1800’s, incorporated with valuable elements taken from esoteric cosmology.
The theory posits that vibration underlies all phenomena, and that harmonic factors govern universal forces.
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.
Sample Text & Charts From the The Path of Least Resistance
The Underlying Wisdom & Philosophy of W. D. Gann Elegantly Encoded in the Master Charts
By Daniel T. Ferrera
"GEOMETRICAL ANGLES are the most important of all rules for determining both PRICE and TIME culminations. - W. D. Gann
The following section will present a bit of sample text from Daniel T. Ferrera's course The Path of Least Resistance, as well as show a handful of charts that illustrate the general style of techniques that are presented in this course. We cannot really explain what is being done on these charts, as that is what is covered in the course itself, but we hope this helps give a better sense of the quality and depth of the material!
Sample pages 101-104 from The Path of Least Resistance
Notice that this is the 2nd 10% or greater correction in the bull market that began from the 2009 low. I gave my Outlook for 2011 subscribers this particular sell signal prior to this square-out and correction, based on geometric angles projected up from the last higher low of the up-trend, and the lost motion entry pattern from my course, Keys to Successful Speculation.
Note that on October 4th, 2011, the market found support exactly on the 1 x 2 angle projected down from the 2007 top. From this point forward, the market never regained the 1 x 1 angle from the March 2009 low.
The 45° angle projected from October 4th, 2011 provided the main support level for the remainder of this bull market, thus illustrating why Gann said, "you must always draw 45° angles from every important high or low."
The next down arrow in the series on the above chart shows where the 45° angle moving up from the March 6, 2009 low reaches the price level, or horizontal angle, of the October 2007 top. This "square of the range" brought in another notable market correction of approximately -8%.
The S&P500 Index then found support on the 45° angle moving up from the October 4th, 2011 low, that is to say, the same low price and date where the 1 x 2 angle from the 2007 top acted as a strong support level noted in the prior paragraph.
The 2nd red circle occurs on December 30th, 2014 to January 2, 2015 and will represent the 2nd "square of the range" from the October 2007 top.
Notice that the highest price levels reached in 2014 are all meeting strong resistance on the 1 x 1 angle from the April 2nd, 2012 top, which was an attempt to regain the original 45° angle from March 2009, but failed to reach it.
Another 1 x 4 angle was projected up from the October 2007 top to show the intersection of geometric angles occurring at the upper end of the green 1 x 1 parallel price channel. This brought in the third 10% correction since March 2009 and the market collapsed down to the 1 x 1 angle moving up from the October 4th, 2011 low, which is the most important support level that this bull market must hold. If this angle breaks, then according to Gann's rules a collapse to the 1 x 2 angle or more would be anticipated.
The final chart above shows 3 additional arrows. The 1st down arrow is the March 2009 low price converted to time. In other words, the 666 low price, divided by the price 1 to 1 price scale (.992), which equals 671 trading days. This was the 1st square-out of the low expressed as time.
The first up arrow is the October 2007 high price converted to time, which equals 1589 trading days. This is the first square-out of the 2007 high expressed as time.
The 3rd arrow, which also points down, is the 2nd square-out of the March 2009 low expressed as a time period. These turning points were determined mathematically by dividing the price with the correct scale, but are identical to projecting the 1 x 1 angles up from zero at the date of origin, per Gann's instructions, to determine when they reach the former price level or horizontal angle.
These examples show all of Gann's essential concepts: geometric angles, squaring the range, squaring the extreme high and squaring the extreme low, all of which he presented in a small, yet very expensive course titled The Basis of My Forecasting Method.
The KEY secret Gann retained was not telling the student how to correctly balance the primary 1 x 1 angle so that 1 unit of price equals 1 unit of time. This secret was only revealed to private students who consented to signing a confidentiality agreement in order to have this essential key revealed. Without this fundamental insight and first important step, all of Gann's geometrical work is practically useless, which explains why these Gann's tools are generally misapplied by most Gann analysts, and are not appreciated as they should be.
The most comprehensive elaboration of W.D. Gann's most powerful technical trading tools.
It presents all of Gann's foundational mathematical and geometrical techniques expressed in his master calculators, angles, trend channels, squaring processes, pattern formations, spiral charts and much more, leading to the clear identification of profitable Trade Setups, important trend indications, and critical price/time culminations.
With 300 pages of detailed text, over 150 charts and diagrams, and 190 pages of the rarest Gann's supplementary material, we consider this 500 page treatise to be THE TEXTBOOK on Gann's geometrical techniques that no serious Gann analyst can afford to be without.
Biographies of market masters, traders and historical figures in our field.
Sepharial (Walter Gorn Old) was an associate of W. D. Gann and Blavatsky who produced a number of works on esotericism and financial market analysis, his Arcana & Keys being the most rare.
We reprint Sepharial's original collection of the Arcana, The Kaleidoscope, a 1000 page collection of articles from the British Journal of Astrology.
In the esoteric tradition the use of symbolism as a communicative form has been taken to its highest representation.
Reading the symbols of the ancient systems takes great study and the development of intuitive insight, which can take many years of training.
Ultimately, the symbolist learns to read the world itself as the Grand Symbol of the Mysteries.
Zen and Chan are similar terms from Japanese and Chinese systems of Buddhism, but they originate from the Indian word Dhyana, loosely translated as "meditation".
Zen is a mind science, giving direct access to the core layers of mind.
The origin of Zen is in India, home of Buddhism. Allan Watt’s called it "Hinduism stripped for export".
In Ancient times, art was more than a form of entertainment or decoration, being a means of preserving various forms and levels of knowledge, including scientific principles.
A core element is called "The Canon", whereby through ratio, proportion, shape and symbolism, an entire system of universal knowledge can be encoded and preserved.
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.
Cosmological phenomena influence the human mind via energetic propagation of subtle influences.
The mind has power over subtle energies through advanced planes of thought and consciousness.
Gann advised a study of mental science to see how cosmic influences affect matter and consciousness.
The Precession of the Equinoxes, of vital importance in the ancient world, relates to the passage of our solar system through 12 cycles of 2620 years over a 25000 year period.
Ages of change (as in The Age of Aquarius) occur every 1 degree, taking 72 years, with longer cysles such as the Platonic Year, the Yugas, and the ages of Iron, Bronze, Silver and Gold.
