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.
Wheels Within Wheels The Art of Forecasting Financial Market Cycles
By Daniel T Ferrera
An advanced cycle analysis and modeling course demonstrating how to analyze component waves and combine them into a composite cycle model that projects the market decades into the future.
Wheels Within Wheels by Daniel T. Ferrera ( $450.00 )
In this course, Ferrera breaks down the 16 primary component cycles in the Dow Jones Industrial Averages, and recombines them using Excel calculators to create a composite wave model which reproduces with 90% accuracy the last 100 years of market activity (see chart below).
He explains all cycle lengths and some possible correlations, but most importantly projects the DJIA 100 years into the future through his DTF Barometer. The course demystifies cycle analysis methods used by the likes of W.D. Gann, JM Hurst, Edward R. Dewey and his Foundation for the Study of Cycles, and teaches how to make cyclical models for any market. Included are models for: DJIA, S&P500, Soybeans, Bonds, Gold, Natural Gas, Australian$, Wheat and more.
What follows in the next several pages is the result and evolution of several years of research into the main rhythms of the Stock Market. You will be given specific cycles along with their phasing to learn how the synthesis of many “waves” or “cycles” can model market behavior.
In addition, you will receive my Excel worksheets, which contain the cycles and future projections. It is my hope that these worksheets will allow you to develop similar spreadsheets that you can use for the market of your choice.
In this material, you will receive my DTF-Long Term Stock Market Barometer. This is a composite of 16 different long-term stock market cycles that have had a very strong influence historically on price behavior. Each component or constituent cycle in the barometer will be illustrated individually to aid you in your understanding of these underlying rhythms. Originally, this “Long Term Barometer” of stock market behavior was only going to be sold to financial institutions and professional money managers for several thousands of dollars but after discussing this with friends and family, I decided to make this information available to the general public instead.
To take a complex wave like market behavior and analyze it into its simple components involves a great deal of research and technical knowledge. In addition, the task of reconstructing these simple rhythms or cycles into a totality also involves a great deal of work and knowledge. It is my hope that the excel worksheets included with this material will help you in this regard. The subject of cycle analysis is too vast to cover in this material.There are many books and computer programs that can aid you in gaining a more comprehensive understanding of the subject, which you will find in the ICE website.
The first two sections of Wheels Within Wheels will cover two Stock Market Cycle Reports developed some years back. The third section will cover the cycles and phasing of the DTF-Stock Market Barometer.
The fourth section will illustrate the two most dominant long-term cycles in bond yields. Since the majority of all personal investments are typically allocated between stocks and bonds, I felt that this information would be useful to the greatest number of individuals.

Mr. Ferrera has put together a very unique stock market report that clearly shows two dominant long term cycle patterns that have predicted every major Bull & Bear Market Trend for the past century. He then projects this pattern 100 years into the future. I would highly recommend this report to anyone that invests in the US Stock Markets.

Having studied and used cycles in the stock market for some 32 years now, I have come to appreciate their value and consider the study of economic cycles the only valuable tool the long-term investor really needs. Because of this, I was interested in reading Daniel Ferrera’s new "Special Stock Market Cycle Report" to see if he could shed some light on the economic outlook for the coming years and if it differed from my own views. Dan’s report basically explains the long term "Super" bull and bear market cycles and breaks down their subcycles with examples from the past 100 years and then forecasts them 100 years into the future. Most investors would be quite surprised to learn what these cycles suggest for the coming decade and the next two to four years in particular. A knowledge of such major highs and lows is instrumental to wealth creation and I believe that the Rothschilds of Europe specifically stated that they accumulated all of their wealth by simply following the 41-42 month cycle of economic activity which worked for their families for over a century! Dan’s study pinpoints the big highs and lows that come from very regular and dependable cycles and if you are a long term investor or mutual fund owner you will certainly want to know when these "once in a lifetime" opportunities come for stock investing. This report also mentions the more frequent short term cycles of economic activity that can act as a guidepost to the outcomes forecasted by the master long term cycles. If you invest in the market with any long-term funds you will need to know the information in this report. It’s presented as a fairly basic analysis that will serve as a stepping stone to more sophisticated cycle analysis but for the average investor if you don’t know these basic fundamental cycles you will be at a significant disadvantage in the investment arena. For the rather modest cost of this report, I feel it is an investment in the future well worth making.
- Michael S. Jenkins, Stock Cycles Forecast
Long-term investing through "Buy & Hold" philosophy can be an excellent strategy for accumulating significant wealth in the stock market, but that strategy and the length of the holding period must be based on the specific cyclic action of the market, not some rigid, "never sell" approach which refuses to adjust to the changes in the market. If you bought for the long-term in 1928 and failed to sell in early October 1929, it took you until 1953 just to break even, and that's assuming the stocks you bought were even in business 25 years later. Bought for the long-term in 1966 and held? It took you a full 16 years until 1982 to break even ignoring the horrible economic inflation our country experienced . Mr. Ferrera's report clearly shows how and when these long term investment opportunities present themselves with both historical charts and future projections all the way out to the year 2108. I believe its the best investment I have ever made. In my opinion, the price should be much higher.
- V. S.
Mr. Ferrera, who has written several magazine articles for us, has put together a unique stock market report that clearly shows how two dominant long-term cycle patterns have predicted every major Bull & Bear Market for the past century. Mr. Ferrera then graphically projects this cyclic model 16 years into the future and then describes how the stock market is likely to unfold over the next 100-years! In all my years at Tradersworld Magazine, I have never seen anything like this report! This information is absolutely invaluable for anyone that invests in the equity markets, whether it's on their own or through a company retirement plan. You Can See It Too... In this report, you will literally "see" how and why the markets crashed in 1929 and then again in 1974. You will understand why the market basically traded sideways from 1932 to 1947 and 1974 to 1982. You will see why the stock markets topped in the year 2000 and what they are most likely to do until the year 2018.

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.
