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.
Ferrera Outlook Forecast Results Documented in his Yearly Outlooks from 2008 to Current
By Daniel T. Ferrera
An ongoingly updated record of Ferrera's forecast results using technical Gann theory to predict market swings and turns in time and price based upon time cycle sequencing combined with geometrical angle projection, mathematical modeling and chart analysis.
The results of Dan Ferrera’s forecasts have been tracked and compiled for over 9 years on this page, showing examples of his time projection techniques and results combined with his price forecasting methods. His readers have seen him call the bubble tops in 2001 and 2007 and forecast to the week the final bottom in 2009 allowing his clients to buy the exact low for the current longest bull market in history. Ferrera identifies major turning points in the market each year helping investors, managers and traders to move in and out of intermediate to long term trades or to hedge positions based upon advanced cyclic analysis and mathematical models founded upon technical analysis and Gann theory.
Intent Of Ferrera's Outlooks
Readers should always understand that the main objeotive of these Outlook Reports is to avoid bear markets and significant corrections, yet participate in bull markets advances that are expected to last at least a minimum of 6-months for the most aggressive traders. It should also be viewed as an educational resource as many forecasting discoveries are revealed in each report that are not available from any other source.
Best wishes for successful trading…
Ferrera Outlook for 2016 by Daniel T. Ferrera ( $50.00 )
Ferrera Outlook for 2015 by Daniel T. Ferrera ( $50.00 )
Readers are warned that stock prices are high and a correction is likely to occur in August as the maximum extension of this Bull market. Page 30 said - 'August 2015 would be the ultimate time limit of the 3rd longest bull market in history'.
The March Update calculated the maximum price high for the S&P500 would not exceed 2140. The highest price traded on May 20th was 2135!
This same update told readers to expect a 6-year cycle low to occur between June and September of 2015.
The market double bottomed in this time period August 25 and September 29, fulfilling the 6-year low and the initial decline of a projected bear market into 2016, which implies that it is the final price high of the 6-year bull market advance.
Key points from the above chart
In his August 2014 update, Ferrera said that from a structural perspective that the market changed on September 19th, 2014.
He called for a seasonal rally to occur in October to December 30, 2014 as the next 'Square Out' date. The market does indeed square out on 12/30/2014.
Ferrera states that the 2015 market should end below the middle red line of the 12/30/14 square out price, which it does!
He states that the January Effect forecasts a downward year.
He shows that the February top (red arrow) shows George Lindsey’s standard time count for sideways correction. Topping formation in process.
In the June update he told subscribers to use the April 27th high as a price Pivot. Ferrera said to be Long Above that point, and Short Below it. The market never broke out above that point.
The March Update showed how the daily price structure was setting up for another Flash Crash and similar decline as Sep thru Oct 2014. The initial correction began as forecasted and the price pivot level provided several excellent entry points.
The June Update stated, 'Analysis suggests that mid-August through October of this year is the most likely 2-month period to usher in the initial phase of a meaningful correction that could ultimately last into 2016.'
August Update showed that the market is now bearish on Gann’s primary 45-degree angle and predicted a bounce back that would stall the advance precisely on the same angle, which is exactly what happened.
6-year low (blue arrow at Sep bottom). Readers were told that a seasonal rally is expected to happen but will be short lived and fail by November instead of its typical rise through year end. Market topped November 3rd hitting the 45-degree angle.
(red arrow Nov top) Market hits its head on the 45-degree angle as forecast to be the ideal price level. Rally died Nov 3rd.
October update gave Dec 2nd as the price-time date.
Market closed negative for the year as forecasted. Buy and hold investors have not made ANY real gains since the September 19th 2014 date that Ferrera said market structure began to change.
2014 Outlook - January, February & March Updates
Ferrera Outlook for 2014 by Daniel T. Ferrera ( $50.00 )
Ferrera called the December 31st, 2013 top on The Dow Jones Industrial Average.
He gave January 14th as another area for a top, and the S&P and NASDAQ hit their first top on January 16th.
The next update showed how the decline broke the lowest low of December 2013, confirming the probability of a bear market for 2014.
Readers were also told to watch for tops around March 6th for the S&P and NASDAQ as these markets were diverging like they did 14-years ago in 2000.
The March update showed the importance of Friday March 21st to Monday March 24th, 2014, based upon past parabolic markets, warning readers of the potential that this secular bear market rally may be over.
Ferrera Outlook for 2013 by Daniel T. Ferrera ( $50.00 )
October 19th Update
Historical pattern analysis suggests that October might correct approximately 3% to 5% from the current high levels, followed by a seasonal rally into year-end or December 31st, shown below. If the market does experience the minor correction predicted, then purchasing Call Options with December 2013 expiration is likely the best approach to play this particular scenario as it provides a specific amount of risk and a leveraged amount of return.
July 12th Update
On the prior chart, the cyclic top was April 22nd 1998, with a triple top forming on May 21st, very similar to the cycle top for 2013 on May 21st. This market declined for a full month into late June and then bounced up aggressively into July 18th, 1998, From July 18th, 1998, the markets collapsed over 20% into August 31st before reversing on September 1st
May 15th Update
The next cycle turn is the anniversary of the NYSE date of incorporation May 17th. On the 20th to 22nd of May, another important cycle turning point is due, ideally May 21st. June is projected as weakness on the 160-year and 180-year cycles. This same period is also weak based upon Gann’s Financial Time Table. As said prior, a top feels near.
Outlook: Page 6
Examining the forecasting methods presented thus far, it seems likely that the markets will weaken or trend downwards September through late November 2012. In fact, 60 years of almanac analysis pegs the average September decline at -0.5% for the S&P 500 and -0.8% for the Dow Industrials. The worst September came in 1974 when the S&P 500 fell 11.9%, while the best monthly gain was posted just two years ago when the index rose 8.8%. In September, fund managers typically clean house selling a lot of their positions as the end of their third quarter approaches, which has caused some nasty sell-offs near month-end over the years. We may also see some supportive action from the Federal Reserve in the first part of September, but as we approach the Autumnal Equinox (Sept 22nd) the focus will clearly be politics and gauging which way the presidential election is leaning."
Outlook: Page 50
The best time to buy into this market would be under the following conditions:
There is a significant price decline from the Autumn Equinox (Sept 22nd 2012 area) down until at least the presidential elections on November 4th.
We see this downtrend reverse near the permanent yearly cycle dates of: Nov. 8th to 11th.
Readers should project geometric angles down from the September top as shown on page 45 to assist with trade entry. These angles should also be utilized in an upward projection from the lowest price point preceding your entry to provide an exit signal and/or protective stop loss orders. Based upon the 45-year cycle and the 2012 Mass Pressure Chart, we should see an explosive up move following Thanksgiving November 22nd 2012, which would provide confirming evidence that the 45-year cycle is still working itself out.
The Market continues up through December 31st, 2012.
A top on September 21st, 2012
A 2012 cycle low to occur on November 10th
Followed by an explosive uptrend into spring 2013
A sell signal for May 21st 2013 anticipating a 10% decline
A high on July 18th followed by a Sept 1st low
A 3-5% decline from the September highs followed by a seasonal rally into year's end
Ferrera Outlook for 2012 by Daniel T. Ferrera ( $50.00 )
Taking a closer look at what has occurred thus far, we find that the market did decline from September 2012 into November 2012 (presidential elections) as was discussed on page 6 of the report. The George Lindsey mirror image forecast was only off by 1-week or +6-days. The 2012 Mass Pressure also anticipated the powerful Christmas Rally that followed the November 16th low, with the Lindsey forecast being the 23rd. The Mass Pressure for 2013 was also bullish for the early weeks of January 2013. All in all, this short term projection has worked quite well.
Bull Market Forecast - September 2011 through March 2012
Now examining the year 2012 thus far, we see that it has in fact provided a bull market that has basically followed the prediction made on pages 5 and 6 of the 2012 Outlook. Here, aggressive traders were advised to buy an anticipated Sept 24th 2011 low and exit at the end of Feb 2012 or early March 2012. Since this time, the market has been basically range bound indicating that some cycles are reaching a peak. Quite often, the cyclic peak will be the trough falling between a double top formation like a field goal in football. This tendency was the basis of George Lindsey’s mirror image or fold back forecasting technique.
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.
