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.
Forecast Examples from Daniele Prandelli’s Law of Cause & Effect Sample Stock & Commodity Forecasts from Prandelli’s Blog
By Daniele Prandelli
Prandelli uses Gann’s Planetary Longitude Line theory extracted from Gann charts to predict prices levels and cycle models based upon Gann’s Master Time Factor to identify key turning points in time.
The following examples demonstrate how Prandelli uses advanced Gann timing and price projection techniques derived from deep Gann analysis and market charts to forecast tops and bottoms where the market turns. He does this by projecting mathematical and geometrical points of force determined by astronomical and cyclical variables, which Gann never clearly explained in his books and courses but demonstrated on his charts. Prandelli’s trading courses teach Gann’s swing trading methodology and show how to forecast turning points in advance to generate short to intermediate term trading profits.
The Law of Cause and Effect by Daniele Prandelli ( $1,995.00 )
This Blog (“I Am in Borsa”) was started in March, 2010 and I have posted some forecasts for the last 4 months, up to the end of June. At that point I started a Private Blog (“I Love I Am Inside”) where those who are interested and want to continue following it, can do so with a small contribution (Free Donation). This is absolutely not an Advisor Service, but only my private trading diary where I explain my reasoning to take positions, principally in the S&P500. At times, I also take positions in Gold, Forex or Italian Stocks, but I use most of my time to study, and I do not have time to write everything, and so on my Blog, I concentrate on the S&P500, which is a good guide for all the Western Indexes. I have also added updates below for July and August 2010. All of these forecasts and analysis are documented with original dates on my blog, these are not after the fact forecasts.
The Blog “I Am in Borsa” is open now, but I update it only 2 or 3 times/month only to give some of my thought and to report the results of my forecasts that I have written in the Private Blog, “I Love I Am Inside”.
It is obvious that, in my Blog, I do not explain my methods, but have elaborated the techniques that I use for this forecasting and trading in my trading course: The Law of Cause & Effect.
In this English Section on my Blog, I will provide a track record so that you can better understand my forecasts and trades over the last 6 months. I know that for those who do not read Italian, is difficult to use a translator to read all my post, so I want help clarify my past calls and charts which were made during crucial top or bottom periods, and have translated them and posted them here.
On this Blog, I would like for people to be able to see the proof that I have made some important forecasts using the methods presented in The Law of Cause & Effect. Every Post contains a date defining when the post was made, so that you can confirm that these posts were done in advance or in real-time.
All the charts are showed on the indicated dates, here on this blog, which you can find on the calendar section in the right hand frame.
April 15, 2010
In this Post I showed a chart and I wrote:
“…we are near to a strong resistance, AND WE ARE COMING UP ON TOPS THAT CAN REMAIN FOR MORE WEEK.”
“… I would enter SHORT when the market hits 1216 on the S&P500, with a stop-loss at 1224/1225.”
April 19, 2010
“If we overcome 1220 on the S&P500, we will have a confirm that we will go to 1250, but if we stay under this price, we must consider the possibility that we will need 2 months before we can see the Low from where we can than restart…”
April 28, 2010
… I wait to take Long position until June…”
May 3, 2010
“… I forecast more down movement because the monthly chart shows a reversal that could push the market under the April Low, at least under the 1060 point.”
May 5, 2010
“… my forecast was to see a Low in June, and then buy.”
May 13, 2010
“… after May 17/18, could restart the down move…”
May 20, 2010
“ if we break 1100 point, than I forecast more down move. And sincerely, I think it is what will happen.”
May 21, 2010
“The Accumulation area would be not over 1072/1040 point”
May 25, 2010
“My ideal play? A Low in the first hour and then a up move for the Markets. If I see a Low around 1045 with a successive recovery, it would be a confirm (to buy) for me, with a Stop-Loss under the Low.”
In a comment from this day also I replied to one question saying that in my opinion I could wait to buy on the dates of 10 June or 29 June.
May 28, 2010
“I conclude saying that a weekly cycle obliged me to take in consideration the possibility that we must wait until the second half of June. Also June 29 is a possible Low…”
June 16, 2010
I Insert this Chart:
June 14, 2010
This Monday I said:
“Now we are near first resistances, to see the power of this up move. Area 1106 point (and then 1116)”
June 25, 2010
I posted this Chart:
June 17, 2010
“The S&P500 seems to have the power to break 1116 point, so the next price to take attention is area 1129/1130”
June 14, 2010
“We can move up for more days, maybe up to June 21/22. After June 21/22 I forecast another weak period, for June 29 I expect a Low…”
At this point the Blog is transferred in the Private Blog, from June 28, 2010.
You can appreciate the important Price I give in my calls. After the break of 1035 in the end of June, I say that next target was 1010 and then area 988/992. The July 1, 2010 Low is at 1010,91 point. And in my book, The Law of Cause & Effect I forecast one years ago a important weekly reversal from end of June/beginning of July 2010.
This entire precise time-price example, and how individualize this very important prices, are explained in my book, so you will be able to understand why Gold made a Top at 1265 and why the S&P500 made a Top at 1219.
US $/JAPAN YEN
July 16, 2010
This Friday I said:
“The US $/ Japan Yen now broken 87, and is possible that it arrive to hit 84,7”
Now let’s look at the Chart:
The Low is exactly 84,710!!! This is the proof that we are in the right way to understand the REAL CAUSE that define the Price.
In July I took a position from 1011 on the S&P500, exactly on 1 July 2010. I didn’t take a large trade because I was expecting a low on 29 June. The breakout down making a new low price gave me an alert, and I forecasted that it would rally after we touched 1010 point. Now we know that this was the July Low, and I exited from this trade only 45 days later.
Also I give a buy signal after we break through the 1043 and 1080 points.
July 1, 2010
On the morning I said:
“…but we must wait because now the inversion of the trend has some doubt. The break out down of yesterday can bring the S&P500 index in area 1010 and then 988-992.”
And 2 hours after the S&P500 open, I say:
“The S&P500 Low at 1011 can be the start to see a rally in the next 1-2 days. My analysis forecast a rally. After we broke down through the 1030 point, my first level that I give was 1010, which we reached with a fast descent.”
Here is the chart:
Then I forecast that the down move from 15 July was only a pullback, and it was an opportunity to take a Long position. So I give a buy signal on Monday.
July 15, 2010
Here is what I wrote on this Thursday:
“The forecast says to me that this is only a pullback, so an opportunity to buy from lower prices, but I could be wrong, so it is better to wait for some confirmation. For this reason I will wait until tomorrow, but I prefer to wait until Monday to enter long.
Here is the chart:
Then we arrived in August. I forecast a rally in the first 2 weeks and than a bad last 2 weeks period with a possible low in the 27 August-2 September window.
In particular I forecast a important price in the area of 1128/1130, like a top.
Then I was awaiting an intermediate high on 6 August, and a lateral period for some days, but in the update of Wednesday, 11 August, I alerted all my subscribers that the gap-down open was a signal to see a downward acceleration, and there was not a buy confirmation. My analysis was right.
I think that if you know where the real energy of the price is, the gap can help very much to identify price acceleration.
In the second half of August, like I said weeks back, I was waiting for weakness, and so I took a Long position only where the price gave me a good probability to see a little rally. (I don’t always take short positions because my work is easier if I trade in only one direction. This permits me to remain concentrated without being in a hurry, and it is easier for my subscribers to follow the trades, though they can make their own choice as to whether to trade long, short or both after I give my information).
I can do this because I think that I have found an important law that permits me to know where to look for high energy response points in price. So I take long positions when the Index meets this energy.
Last August, I alerted my subscribers to pay attention to the area 1035-1040.
Here is what I wrote:
“My First Target Price is 1055, but I think that we will break this. Beneath it we see area 1035-1040 (PAY ATTENTION TO THIS LEVEL) and then area 1010-1012. If it were to break under 990-1000, then I expect to see a free fall”
“I started some buying here, but not heavy. I will wait until the last moment, because I see weakness at least until tomorrow, before I enter more heavily.”
And here you can see all my operations on the chart (on the green points I entered Long and on the red points I exited my Long position):
When I bought at 1051 on the 31st of August, I divided this trade into 3 parts: 1/3 of my trade exit at 1181 for a first profit (+30 point). Then I exited at 1104 with the next 1/3 of my trade (+53 point), and I leave my last 1/3 part to follow the trend. (Then I closed it at 1122 = +71 point).
My book explains how to calculate these important price points and time cycles, so you can understand WHERE to pay attention! Price provides a map for your trading when you know where the energy points occur.
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.
