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.

Author of 'The Spirals of Growth and Decay', published by the Institute of Cosmological Economics, Ferrera has also produced courses on market trading systems, Gann Theory and Financial Market Analysis, including Time Cycles, Cyclical Theories, the Square of 9, Periodicity, Price Structure and Swing Trading. Financial Market Forecaster Daniel T. Ferrera has contributed to the advancement of technical analysis, cycle studies, financial market forecasting, wave theory, Gann analysis, risk management, periodicity and Astrology. Ferrera's financial tools and works belong alongside those of market authors such as W D Gann, Robert J Elliott (Elliott Wave Principle), William Garrett (Torque Analysis) and Dr Alan Andrews.
About the Author
Daniel T. Ferrera is one of the most widely renowned living authors to contribute to the advancement of technical analysis, cycle studies, financial market forecasting, wave theory, Gann analysis, risk management, periodicity and Astrology.
Daniel Ferrera's capacity for incisive analysis coupled with an ability to render abstract and complex materials into lucid and applicable financial tools places his works alongside many of the great market authors such as Gann, Elliott, Garrett and Andrews.
Daniel T. Ferrera spent his childhood years growing up in Dearborn, Michigan. His first exposure to the world of markets was at the age of 10. During a 5th grade Junior Achievement project, Ferrera picked stocks from the Wall Street Journal to follow as an exercise in understanding mathematics. The notion that one could simply make or lose money based solely upon changes in a stock's price fascinated his young enquiring mind. Around a decade later the ability for markets to change the lives of many was demonstrated to him in force with the occurrence of the dramatic 1987 market crash. As a young adult, he overheard accounts from his parents' wealthy friends who had lost millions of invested dollars as a result of the crash. What intrigued him the most about these conversations was the claims that "nobody had seen it coming", and that if it could have been predicted it would have saved countless fortunes. It was these words that provided the young Ferrera with the impetus to immerse himself in a lifelong study of the markets.
With youthful enthusiasm and a desire to discover the causes behind this epic crash, Ferrera began studying the price structure and wave mechanics behind the markets. Where an older market researcher might defer to the wisdom of those who had come before them; Ferrera's development was very much self-guided by youthful instincts, latent talent and advanced analytical faculties. It was this youthful independence and enthusiasm to find his own path towards understanding the markets that generated a new and comprehensive method in which to read market behavior and forecast probable scenarios. This new method represented a completely unique offering to the canon of market theory which had never been seen before.
Spirals of Growth and Decay
After 12 years of inspired research, analysis and application of his theories, Ferrera had developed a breakthrough theory of wave mechanics in the price structure of markets. This work was kept confidential and unreleased for many years, while Ferrera developed studies of the work of W.D. Gann, technical analysis, and risk management trading systems. In 2005, Ferrera finally agreed to release his work in one of the ICE’s flagship publications – The Spirals of Growth and Decay. The Institute of Cosmological Economics considers this course to be without a doubt Daniel T. Ferrera's most unique and important published offering to the world of Market Forecasting and Analysis. It represents the essence of his life’s work in the study of financial markets. This work preceded and fueled all of his later offerings in the study of W.D. Gann and Technical Analysis.
Originally limited to only 50 copies, and recently rereleased for a larger edition; this book unravels the order behind the markets in its most pristine and exquisite beauty. The insights contained within this book provide a technical, structural vision of the simple elegance and ordering sequence behind all financial markets.
Ferrera illustrates the principles outlined in the book through application to 100 years of the Dow Jones, breaking down the ordering sequence to reveal an underlying morphogenetic field (or vibrational structure) that exists behind the apparent market structure. In many respects this course is akin to having a market road map, so that one can ascertain their location and direction in the fractal market fields, where the growth must be going, and the imminent structure to be revealed in the next phases of the markets - truly a profound insight.
Applying the Tools
Prior to sharing his core research and methods with a select group of readers through Spirals, Ferrera applied his methods within a larger investment context. From 1995 until 2001 he contributed his knowledge and insights to the investment firm A.G Edwards & Sons with marked successes. During this phase he made his first contact with the Institute of Cosmological Economics and was introduced for the first time to the work of Gann, Baumring, Bayer, and their related esoteric studies. Due to the intensive research he had conducted around his wave mechanic theory, when exposed to these new, and generally considered complex ideas, he found that he had a natural and deep technical understanding of the work of these market masters.
During this time, his research gravitated to the works of the great W.D. Gann. While Spirals demonstrated the elegance and beauty inherent in the markets it was not a forecasting tool per se that could be used in isolation. With a natural propensity for understanding market structure and the legacy of knowledge gained in his early years, Ferrera took to understanding the essential core of Gann’s teachings with astounding expedience. It was Gann's exhaustive research into time and price forecasting that gave Ferrera important inroads to what was to come.
Over the next several years Ferrera's Gann research was manifest in a series of deep enquiries into the methods and tools of this great master. As he studied this work for the first time, Ferrera documented his insight and application of each of Gann’s specific techniques, leading to published offerings which shed much needed light and modern approaches to many of the lesser known, or clearly explained Gann techniques such as:
His deeper study into the work of Gann also provided Ferrera with the impetus to understand the relationship between the Bible and astrology, primarily as the result of a friend asking him the question “Gann says that the Bible was the source of his wisdom, but how is it that Gann found this knowledge in the Bible?” This led him to study this correlation the results of which were produced in his book on Astrological Bible Interpretation.
Keys to Successful Speculation
Through all of Ferrera’s work in analyzing the deep technical concepts presented in Gann’s complex work, Ferrera noticed that many traders still struggled with the idea of actually applying these insights to actual trading. Gann himself was famous as a highly successful trader, so Ferrera decided to do a close study of his trading methodologies and particularly his mechanical and Swing Trading systems. Through this study, Ferrera discovered an underlying logic behind Gann’s mechanical systems which was capable of producing a high performance and nearly automated trading system. Using this as a foundation, Ferrera developed one of the most comprehensive works on Risk Management, trade placement, account management and general trading approaches incorporated into his Keys to Successful Speculation. This course presents even the novice trader with the critical foundations needed by ALL traders to become successful at their profession. The clarity of his approach here has been recognized by fund managers and professionals as one of the most clearly presented teachings on risk and trade management in the industry.
Fully equipped with the tools of Gann, Ferrera began to develop a series of annual forecasts in the form of his "Ferrera Outlooks". Since the inaugural Outlook of 2008, Ferrera has provided outstanding value for money with these offerings. These forecasts have proven to be extremely beneficial for predicting the major market moves of the year. Highlights of his past forecast results consistently demonstrate accurate calls on major tops and bottoms months in advance.
Long Term Forecasting
As part of his teachings contained in Wheels Within Wheels, Ferrera constructed a long term cycle model to forecast the S&P 500 out to 2036. The following chart from the course presents a blow-up of the larger S&P 500 cycle model for the time period from 2000 thru 2008.
Ferrera Long-Range Forecast 2002 - 2008
The chart demonstrates that Ferrera perfectly called the 2002 bottom, the ensuing bull market, and nailed the October 2007 top to within 1 week, from a period 6 years prior. Those who had this book, and followed this forecast were out of the markets at the perfect time, at an all-time historical bubble high. Ferrera’s complete forecast from the Wheels course extends out for almost another 100 years, to 2108, past the time that any of us will even likely be alive.
Economic and Stock Market Forecasting
After seven long years of waiting since he wrote his last course The Spirals of Growth & Decay, the Institute of Cosmological Economics released his newest work, Economic & Stock Market Forecasting in 2013. This book contains new breakthroughs in his understanding of Gann’s most complicated and secretive forecasting methodology, what we would call Cyclical Periodicity Sequencing.
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.

With the recent release of Economic & Stock Market Forecasting, Ferrera continues to research and study periodicity and other recurring patterns that repeat at specific time intervals. Beyond the spheres of markets and finance, Ferrera spends time balancing his deeply analytical processes with interests in Mediation, Tai Chi, Walking, Weight training, Guitar, and the rewards of parenting. The Institute of Cosmological Economics is proud to represent his ongoing work and advances to the study of Markets.
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.
