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.
The Polarity Factor System An Integrated Forecasting & Trading Strategy Inspired By W. D. Gann's Master Time Factor
By Daniele Prandelli
As a trader, how happy would you be if you were consistently able to pull 20-30 points of profit a week out of the S&P500 Index, which would be the equivalent of 200-300 points a week on Dow Jones Index? That would be approximately 80-130 points a month on the S&P or approximately 800-1300 points a month on the Dow! Multiply that by 12, and you’re looking at making 1000-1500 points annually on the S&P, equivalent to 10,000-15,000 points a year on the DJIA, which would be like riding a bull market on the Dow from 0 to its all-time high every year! What if you could do the same with the grains, metals, stocks and other markets?
Most traders would consider these to be quite good trading results, if not even excellent, but with this new trading course, The Polarity Factor System, results such as these begin to come into the reach of the properly educated trader. If you think these sorts of results are unrealistic, see Prandelli’s Trading Records for September-November 2011, as these are exactly the documented results Prandelli produced over his last 3 months of trading! And these results are not really spectacular in Prandelli’s experience. In fact, the month of September was the continuation of a 2 month sideways, trendless, whipsawing market, which ate most investors alive.
Obviously, it must take something special to consistently produce these kinds of trading results, and indeed it does! It takes accurate timing, precision pricing, and strategic risk management, all woven into an integrated trading methodology which consistently identifies ideal trading opportunities, and provides a working strategy for profiting from them. And that is exactly what this course does. Customers of Prandelli’s former work, The Law of Cause & Effect, have seen the accuracy of adjusted Planetary Longitude lines in determining tops, bottoms and resistance levels. Now imagine adding a timing system with an equivalent sophistication and precision to determine not just potential turning points, but the actual polarity of turning points, meaning whether a turn will be a top or a bottom in the market, and doing this consistently on an intermediate-term (meaning daily-weekly) scale. Combine with this pricing and timing system with a well-tested trading strategy, which limits losses and lets profits run, and you are on your way to producing the results mentioned above.
Like his earlier course, The Law of Cause & Effect, the time forecasting system presented in The Polarity Factor System is based upon the powerful insights of the great market master, W. D. Gann, and particularly upon his Master Time Factor, presented in one of his rarest and most secret courses. Prandelli has redeveloped Gann’s Master Time Factor and programmed it in his own proprietary software (using Microsoft Excel) to create yearly forecasts of the market of the same level of accuracy as those produced by Gann in his Supply and Demand Letter, almost 100 years ago. This timing technique, which he calls the Polarity Factor System (PFS), forecasts market tops and bottoms with an 80% accuracy, giving clear directional indications, and the confirmatory tools included in this course, when combined with the PFS forecasts, at times increase these odd even more. But this course does not only provide a time forecasting system, it also includes a sophisticated strategy to trade the forecast. Prandelli says, that to provide a forecast without clearly showing how to trade it is almost useless, and therefore he develops an entire methodology using time, price and trading strategy, to maximize trading profits in the markets.
Excerpt From Prandelli's Preface to the Course
For some time, I thought about writing this course, and in so doing, asked myself, “How would I expect the most practical trading course to be presented?”
I concluded that there are 3 critical characteristics of a trading course that I have rarely found elsewhere:
to be precise
to be realistic
to be profit-making
These are the principal points that I would expect to find in a practical trading course. Precision was one of the most difficult elements to find. I often found that I was not able to put into practise the knowledge acquired because I didn’t know exactly where and when I was supposed to enter the market. The reality of what is learned in a course is often very different from the reality presented by the market. It is useless to show 20 charts where a line perfectly hit a price, without showing how it behaved in the other 100 cases when the line didn’t govern the price trend. Reality must be shown in its entirety, both in favourable and adverse situations because nobody is infallible, but we must be able to manage both circumstances. In the end, I needed to learn something that would enable me, or at least help me, to make consistent profits from my trading.
Therefore, the venture I am about to undertake is anything but easy. In order to accomplish all three of these points, some specific requirements are necessary. First, I must know very well the market I am going to trade, and I need clear proof that the method works practically and is profit-making. The first requirement was obtained after years of practice using the same tool, specifically the S&P500, in my case. The second requirement was obtained through my Online Blog “I AM in BORSA”, which presented the trading signals and strategy through an ongoing commentary written every day before the stock market opening. The Blog demonstrates the proof that we can produce profits from market using the analysis and trading strategies presented in this course.
In this course, I am going to present to you a statistical methodology, not a fool-proof system. I will tell you when you can expect something and when not. A good trader must know when he can trade and when he must simply observe. Much of this work is based upon pure forecasting, but not forecasting alone, since it is rare to make a perfect forecast. Even Gann did not make perfect forecasts, so to compensate for the factor of potential errors, one must have a trading strategy which takes the forecast into account, but which also reads the market indications in real-time so as to allow a trader to adjust his trading accordingly. This course presents the techniques and the tools I use to make forecasts of the US stock market, with the application of the strategies on the S&P500 index. However, these same rules and techniques equally apply to other markets, and as an ongoing study, in the Online Forum, we will collect data for other markets and produce similar PFS forecasts on each market for which we can find sufficient data.
What This Course Will Teach You:
How to Determine the Yearly Trend of the Market
The first step presented in this course is the means by which to establish the general yearly trend of the market. Prandelli uses a technique developed by Gann using his Master Time Factor to first establish the directional expectations for the yearly trend.
How to Create a Directional Turning Point Forecast for the Year Using the Polarity Factor System
The next, and most important step, is to create a yearly directional swing forecast for the market defining key tops, bottoms and trends for each month. This forecast will produce the same kind of chart, though with greater detail, as the chart below, taken from W. D. Gann’s Supply & Demand Letter, showing his Forecast for the Stock Market for 1922. On the chart below the dotted line represents Gann’s forecast for the Dow Jones Industrial Averages for the year 1922, created IN ADVANCE for that year, and the solid line shows the actual movements of the DJIA for the year.
Prandelli’s Polarity Factor System (PFS) creates a future price swing model that works in exactly the same way as Gann’s forecast above. This model is based upon Gann’s Master Time Factor, and these models can be created for many years, even decades into the future. Included with the course is proprietary software created in Microsoft Excel developed to automatically generate these PFS Forecasts for any year in the past, and projecting into the future for the next decade and beyond.
These PFS Forecasts do not only project expected turning points in the future, but give the precise orientation or polarity of each turning point, meaning whether a turn is going to be a Top or a Bottom, not just a potential turning point, just as Gann has done in the above chart. It also defines the expected upward and downward trends, along with their potential strength. The polarity of these turning points has a directional accuracy of approximately 80%, and an accuracy in actual timing of turns of about 80%, making it one of the most advanced and useful timing tools we’ve seen.
Statistical Pattern Analysis for Confirmation of Forecast Turning Points
However, even when one has a directional swing forecast such as Gann’s shown above, one can see that it is never perfect, since creating a perfect forecast is almost impossible. Realizing this, and being realistic, as a trader must be, Prandelli has developed a secondary analysis process, through which he is able to develop statistical expectations of intermediate trend action and probable turning points, completely disconnected from the PFS analysis, but providing a critical confirmatory tool for interpreting the PFS Forecast.
This secondary confirmation tool provides another level of insight into the probability of the specific turning points, and the trend direction leading into and following those specific points. If further helps to clarify the likelihood of which point will be the primary turning point during times when the forecast shows a potential double or triple top or bottom, or provides alternate scenarios when the forecast is moving laterally, like in the period from May-June on Gann’s Forecast above. Prandelli has learned from long trading experience that one cannot be solely dependent upon just one forecasting tool, but instead must develop confirmation tools to improve the likelihood of identifying the key trading points in the market.
When the Forecast and confirmation tools are perfectly aligned, the probability of identifying the exact turning point can go up to as much as 95% accuracy. However, when they are in conflict, they forewarn the trader to be extra careful during these periods, and to watch and wait for the market to give the needed trading indications, which are given by key price levels defined by Planetary Longitude lines.
Once the PFS Forecast has been created and the statistical confirmations have been analyzed, it is not enough to just enter the market based upon pure timing indications. This is the essential point where the knowledge of the use of Planetary Longitude Lines, as developed fully in Prandelli’s first course, The Law of Cause & Effect, comes into play. Gann always identified TWO most important elements in the market: PRICE & TIME. While the Polarity Factor System and statistical patterning provides the TIME, the Planetary Price Lines give the EXACT indications of the KEY PRICES that the market will react to.
With these Key prices used in direct correlation with the timing element, the accuracy and efficiency of placing one’s trades with limited risk is greatly increased. Those who have Prandelli’s first course have confirmed the value of these Planetary Lines in determining exact tops and bottoms, and in providing key support and resistance levels which the market is attracted to and repelled from in all of its motions. In this chapter, Prandelli shows how to integrate this key PRICE insight with the TIME element, as the basis for a powerful trading strategy, further using these lines for entry and exit positions, trend targets and stop-loss placement.
Trading Strategy – Risk Management – Entry & Exit Points – Position Sizing – Capital Management
Though Gann may have identified Price & Time as the Key elements for trading the market, all real traders know there is one further element of the GREATEST importance: RISK MANAGEMENT! Prandelli reiterates again and again throughout this course that just knowing WHEN and WHERE markets will turn is NOT enough to allow one to be a successful trader. One MUST also have a clear, pre-defined trading strategy to trade these indications while limiting one’s risk and preserving one’s capital. One must know exactly where one will enter each trade, and where exactly to place stops so as to cut losses short, allowing the trader to lose many times without deteriorating his capital.
Further, the trader must also have clearly identified price targets, as well as a strategy for exiting the market at pre-defined locations with different segments of his positions, so as to lock in some initial gains, while also allowing profits to run with a stronger trend. Prandelli’s course is NOT just a theoretical forecasting system, but rather is an applied, long-tested, highly profitable trading strategy, incorporating PRICE indications, DIRECTIONAL TIME projections, and a simple but efficient TRADING STRATEGY that will limit losses and let profits run, to maximize one’s efficacy as a trader.
Documented Trading History
Prandelli provides dozens of real-time examples taken from his Online Blog “I AM in BORSA”, which has been recording his forecasts and trades for the past 18 months through an ongoing commentary written every day before the stock market opening. He shows exactly how he made all of his forecasts, what his logic and expectations were, and exactly how he used those Price & Time indications to place highly accurate and profitable trades. The Blog demonstrates the proof that this methodology can produce profits from the market using the analysis and trading strategies presented in this course.
Prandelli’s trading strategy produces an excellent Reward/Risk ratio of 6/1. Using his Planetary Lines in conjunction with this PFS Forecasts and confirmations, he is able to place trades with tight stop-losses, with an average risk of only 3.5 points and an average reward of 21.3 points. The average win/loss ratio is 1/1, so by limiting risk and letting profits run, this ratio produces large profits with small risk of deteriorating capital. The reason the winners to losers ratio is 1/1 is that sometimes one may attempt to enter a position 2-3 times before the market begins its anticipated move. But since the risk is limited to an average of 3.5 points per entry, the profits from one winner will be double the costs of even 3 losing entry attempts, which is uncommon.
Included PFS Modelling Software & Online PFS Research Forum Membership
Included with this course is proprietary software developed exclusively by Daniele Prandelli in Microsoft Excel, which creates the Polarity Factor System (PFS) yearly forecasts for the S&P 500 Index and Dow Jones Averages for the coming year, as well as decades into the future. Also included with purchase of the course, is membership in the Private Online PFS Research Forum, where Prandelli will answer question of course owners, and where further research, development and application of the principles presented in the course will be discussed and elaborated.
Using The PFS to Forecast Other Markets (Besides S&P)
The included software comes programmed with 100 years of Dow Jones data, but the same software will allow the input of data from any other market. You just need sufficient historical data (approximately 60 years is required to produce the proper PFS forecast) to create an equivalent yearly forecast as Gann and Prandelli produce. An ongoing project in the Online PFS Forum is to collect data for multiple markets, in order to create PFS models, do planetary line analysis, and create strategies to trade a broader range of markets. So far, the PFS Forum group has collected data for Corn, Soybeans, Wheat, and Milk, as is currently in the process of getting data for Gold, Silver and other markets. Prandelli has already completed a new PFS model for the Corn market, which can be seen on the following chart to have produced a beautiful forecast if the price action of Corn in 2008, calling the exact high within 2 days of the actual top!
Prandelli has done an initial strategic analysis of a trading system based solely on the Corn PFS model which was highly profitable in 6 of the last 7 years. Details of these analyses are provided on the PFS Forum, and will further be developed as a group as the research continues. The software will also let researchers experiment with different variations of cyclic forecasting models according to Gann’s specifications or the creativity of the individual researcher. This software is unlocked with all formulae accessible so that customers can use it to create models for any market they desire.
Customer Feedback & Reviews of the PFS Course
I believe that the new Polarity Factor System is better from a trading application perspective than The Law of Cause & Effect, which I also thought was fantastic. It has easily paid for itself already. I have been able, from this course, to replicate around 80%+ of Daniele’s personal trading blog. Given my lack of time to commit more fully, it is something even a part-timer can use quite easily and apply. This is a very tradable methodology – it is highly disciplined and enables the trader to be relaxed when setting positions. It is not wishy-washy and is not open to one’s own interpretation.
The PFS is quite impressive – particularly the background to it. I have been involved with the Online Forum group in reviewing other markets and was able to develop my own PFS for another market which Daniele has now done, and I am pleased to say I was able to arrive at the same conclusion as Daniele from what I had learnt from the course. I think if you only have the Law of Cause & Effect you have the equivalent of a car without its fuel – it may look good but won’t get you to where you wish to go. The new course certainly does. It has paid already and I love the methodology, the simplicity (now Daniele has done the hard work for us) and the high level of discipline.
Living on the other side of the world crates timezone issues, particularly when one isn’t a fulltime trader (i.e. the US market opens at 12:30am my time). But this methodology allows me to still trade the markets. I think the course is useful for everyone – the novice would be best not learning anything else bar this material and it provides someone in this position with a 10-year headstart, while the experienced trader will no doubt add additional tools to their arsenal. I would highly recommend the course!

I can provide an unsolicited and independent assessment of Prandelli’s work. I've watched Daniele trade for quite a while now. I've marveled at his skill with his method. I've seen him be stopped out (so he's not perfect... LOL) but he controls his risk well in those few cases where I've seen him lose. In my humble opinion, he is one of maybe seven traders I know internationally that I put on a pedestal of being masters of sorts. I'm sure there are others that I've not observed, but I've watched dozens of paid services that can't get close to the same results. I think Daniele is the "real deal"... and I don't say that lightly. Past that, he has the wonderful characteristics of being quite humble and kind. All said and done, I think he is a rare individual indeed. Yes, Daniele is a jewel. Nice and gifted guy.
I have indeed enjoyed the new PFS course. Given that I was already a studier of Mr. Gann, I had previously studied much of what Daniele presents in the new book. That said, Daniele packaged the “old material” in a logical and professionally tradable manner. In fact, that is where I think the value lies in this particular book. I got a rare opportunity to see into the mind and methods of a trading master. He lays it out bare for the student to duplicate…. with no guess work. I think that is at least part of what Daniele was attempting to do with the book, and he accomplished that goal.
Of course, I am still dissecting the course and working to build it into my other trading models. After studying thousands of trading methods and throwing most of them in the trash, I find Daniele’s work to be quite worthy of continued inclusion in my trading tool box The proof is in the pudding and I can also say that the course has already paid for itself in my case. I expect that to be the case many times over. I’m also enjoying the forum and the efforts to extend the methods to new markets. It will be fun to see what comes of all of that new research.

I am a huge fan of Daniele's stuff! His cycles in the course have worked INCREDIBLY well for me, and caught both the October 5th low and the November 25 low. Amazing! Regarding the new PFS course, I love it! It's made a huge difference in my trading. It is easy to apply and as tradable as could be ... and we all know how tough the markets are to trade! It also extends the planetary line application beyond what is presented in The Law of Cause & Effect. I think everybody should own Daniele’s 2 courses!

I’ve bought lots of courses from you but I can tell you I like Prandelli’s the most. Beyond the theory, which is fascinating, this course is really close to everyday trading. It is not coming from trading examples many years in the past, it is coming from the present. It is acting and working in the current trading environment. That is why I found it to be the most valuable course for me from all the others I have bought from you. You know that I daytrade with a couple of hundred S&P500 lots, and beyond theory, it is very important that the course would be easily applicable for today’s environment. That could be the reason for this to be the most successful course. I ask you to push Daniele to come up with his next course as soon as possible!

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.
