Applied Gann Theory
 Applied Gann Theory
 Applied Gann Theory
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.
Daniel Ferrera

Daniel Ferrera
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.

History’s most intriguing financial analyst, forecaster and trader, W. D. Gann produced a 10,000% return with a 93% success rate in an audited 1909 interview. Gann said his market theory was based upon the Law of Vibration, leading scholars and analysts on a 100 year intellectual quest deep into  theoretical physics, alternative science and esoteric philosophy, seeking to understand a cosmological ordering system linking the financial markets to the influences of natural science.
Our most popular author, Dan Ferrera is a master of making complicated ideas easy to apply. His 9 courses present KEY elements of Gann Theory & Technical Analysis including Time Cycles, the Square of 9, Periodicity, Price Structure, Swing Trading and Risk Management, providing advanced tools for the average trader. His popular Yearly Outlook provides a fascinating and accurate analysis of market action.

Dr. Lorrie Bennett is one of the only Gann experts to have cracked the Law of Vibration! After 20 years of grueling research she discovered a complex code in Gann's texts which led her to the full solution. Following in Baumring's footsteps, Dr. Bennett lays out the science behind the Law of Vibration in an intensive 4 Volume Advanced Series revealing the Patterns, Numbers, Planets & Geometry behind Gann's secret trading system.

Dr. Baumring is the only known person to have fully cracked W. D. Gann’s full Cosmological System! He reproduced Gann’s results, forecasting markets within 3 minutes of turning points. He extended Gann’s Law of Vibration into DNA Coding, Chaos Theory, & Topology, creating multi-dimensional, mathematical models of the markets, proving them to be a fully Deterministic System. The deepest Gann research sourcework ever compiled.

A Cambridge scholar who, intrigued by the challenge of Gann’s esoteric work created a powerful set of technical tools based upon principles of Ancient Geometry, Celestial Mechanics, and Pythagorean Harmonics, which project Price, Time & Trend with exact precision. His 2nd course applies the Secrets of Ancient Astrology to forecast market turns & trends more accurately than the best works on Financial Astrology preceding it.
Cutting edge Space & Solar Researchers, Muriel & Louis Hasbrouck’s Space/Time Forecasting techniques are STILL more advanced than those of NASA or the current scientific community. The Hasbroucks produced 50 years of Market Forecasts with a 90% accuracy rate and were able to forecast Space Weather, Earthquakes & Geomagnetic Storms. Their advanced techniques develop a new Theory of Space Time Field Forces & Influence.

A penetrating researcher after Baumring’s lead into the core of Gann’s Cosmological System thru cracking Gann’s Squaring of Price & Time. Quantifies the mechanics of Gann’s innermost system demonstrating how markets move in multi-dimensional Space/Time. Includes new and sophisticated trading algorithms which generate 4000% annualized returns, mathematically proving the markets to be an Absolute Deterministic System.

Prandelli's work is very popular with swing traders due to the usefulness of his Gann tools which project Key Price Levels and Cyclical Turning Points. His courses present practical tools using Gann’s Planetary Longitude Lines and Master Time Cycle which combine with his KEY Risk Management & Trading Strategies to produce10-15% monthly returns consistently. His Yearly Forecast Bulletin provides his ongoing trading signals & strategy.

A profit generating Trading Strategy using Gann's best approach of Leveraged Position Trading to produce large profits from small capital using a powerful secret Options Strategy that maximizes profits through high leverage while greatly limiting risk exposure. Based upon Gann’s book, Profits In Commodities and the author's 20 years experience in Gann research and trading, this method is excellent for busy people with small capital.

A New Discovery of a Mathematical Pattern in the Gold Market which forecasts Gold's turns with an 85-95% accuracy over 40 years backtesting. A Scientific Proof of a Cyclical Pattern in the Gold Market which provides a 100 Year Forecast of Gold’s Major Tops & Bottoms and Bull & Bear Market Campaigns out to 2100. This insight will provide you with a series of highly profitable trades for the rest of your life!
 

Sean Erikson, a trader and fund manager with 25 years’ experience, provides a set of powerful astro-tools for advanced swing trading based upon celestial mechanics. The key tool uses an astronomical component which consistently and beautifully predicts the angle of attack or slope of a forthcoming trend. This is combined with a simple astro-timing tool which indicates the next 1-3 turns out and a geometrical price projection tool which provides the two most probable price projections for each move.

The solution to Gann's Law of Vibration from the 1909 Ticker Interview. Penicka analyzes Gann’s exact words correlating them with the cutting edge science of Gann’s day to develop a system which identifies the “mathematical points of force” behind all market action. The Periodic Table of Elements determines a system of order based upon atomic structure which generates a master number set for each market defining its structure in price and time.
W.D. Gann Works
W.D. Gann Works
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.

Prandelli Market Forecast Results January 2012 & March 2013

As Documented in his Forecast Bulletins & Online Blog

By Daniele Prandelli

2013 1st Quarter Forecast Trading Results

The following sections track Prandelli's trades over the past year in the S&P, Soybean and Corn markets. These trades are based upon the techniques presented in his 2 courses, The Law of Cause & Effect, and The Polarity Factor System, and in his Forecast Bulletins which present just his Key Price Levels and PFS Timing Points. The italicized text generally comes from his real-time analysis on his Online Blog, where all of these trades and forecasts are document, or from his Forecast Bulletins.

S&P 500 April 2nd 2013

Prandelli captured the explosive breakout to new all time highs.

In his April 2nd S&P Forecast Bulletin Update , Prandelli stated:

My interpretation of the S&P is that it is very strong. The PFS is about to turn up after April 4-6. I would like to follow this push up to higher prices. To confirm this scenario, I would like to see a brief descent from the today's High (April 2nd), with lower prices around April 4-6. In this case then we may see the up push suggested by the PFS, with a High around April 12-18.
- Daniele Prandelli

S&P 500 February 16th 2013

On February 16th an update was sent to all the buyers of Prandelli's 2013 S&P500 Bulletin, stating the following:

Just a quickly update:

In January we have not seen any descent, and the market has continued to go up. The most important signal, as we said, was the movement above the important price at 1477 points. It is evident now that the market is moving above this price, and looking at my studies it means that next main trend should be up, and for this reason in my Daily and Weekly Reports I interrupted my attempts to the SHORT side in the 3rd week of January. The S&P500 was above 1477 points, so there was not any reason to take SHORT positions, and since then we have not seen any movement under the 1477.

So, now we are trading the uptrend. Only a consolidation under XXX points (you must subscribe to the bulletin for this current data) will change our strategy, but this is not the favored scenario.

Statistically, in February we should see a descent where we will have a new opportunity to enter LONG at lower prices, and at the moment the favorite dates are around 23-25 February or March the 1st. The market is arriving at a top area around February the 18th, and this can be a good change in trade date to expect to see lower prices in the next days. What is very important is the strategy! Working with my key prices, I lost only 8 points trying to SHORT below 1477.

This change doesn't mean that the PFSs is not going to work in the future. As you can see, the long-term PFS is making a LOW in February, and the short-term PFS is moving in a general uptrend. I will use the short-term PFS to take advantage of the possible up pushes, in this way I will trade the uptrend after the 25th.

If we look at the S&P500 chart, we see that the forecast was correct, with the possibility to take advantage of the descent after the top on Tuesday 19th February, and the strong up trend started in February 26th.

Soybeans

The following shows the results of his Report Service using his forecasting and strategy method with Soybeans, where his recent results have been:

Soybeans: +152 points in 45 days & +206 points in 75 days

We have been getting very good results with the Commodities that we are now trading using our PFS signals and Key price lines for trading. On the Soybeans Contract we gained 152 points in just 45 days and 206 points in 75 days. How was it possible to get these results? With a precise and intelligent strategy, and with a solid forecast! Here I show you my Monthly Forecast for December and January that I sent to subscribers of the Prandelli Grain Forecast Bulletin.

Forecast for December, from the Monthly Report:

And this has been the forecast for January, from the January Report:

And here's what the real Soybean market did:

You can see that we have been able to take advantage of every up swing thanks to the forecast. We were waiting for a general up trend until circa December 12. Then the PFS was suggesting us a stop of the uptrend, with a lateral or descending phase until the end of the year. In January the PFS was suggesting again to follow the uptrend, and it has been right, producing good profits.

Here you can see all the trades were done on my Blog, following the strategy that I use every day to follow my PFS forecast:

My methods and strategy are also working very well on the CORN, but CORN is a less volatile market, so it gives us less opportunity to make big profits. In any event, in CORN over the last 75 days we have accumulated +65 points profit, which is absolutely not bad considering that CORN is now trading at 738 points. It means almost +9% of profit on the whole value in just 75 days. In the Soybean market, 214 points means almost +14% in 75 days. Not bad!

2012 END OF YEAR TRADING RESULTS

In late November I started to keep Records of the trades generated by my Reports. Over the years, people have asked me to show them the track record of the trades generated by my service, but I have never kept it because I saw it as a waste of time. But now I see that too many people ask for and want to see these results, so I decided to keep consistent records of all my signals moving forward. The tracking begins from 19 November 2012, so there are not so many trades yet, but you can see that my service is currently trading four markets: S&P500 (with an intraday strategy and a mid-term strategy for people that cannot follow the market intraday), Corn, Soybeans and ASX200.

At the moment ASX200 at 4584 points. We are Long with the last 1/3, in profit of 120 points

All these are the actual trades of my service, given with Daily Reports or Weekly Reports. So, why are the courses so important? Just one real example will help to demonstrate. This is what I wrote in my 2012 Bulletin about the S&P500:

Let's turn to the prices: according to my studies, S&P500 is working in a price range between area 1290-1296 (-30 margin points) and 1473-1500 points. Indeed, at the moment, my principal target on the S&P500 is the area of 1473-1500. If it reaches this price, the S&P500 could begin to go down, but everything depends on WHEN this price is reached! Moreover, if the S&P500 should retrace to the area of 1260-1295 without having reached the first target at 1473-1500 points, this could be a very good BUY point...!

Guys, now, December 2012, we can see that during the year the Low was 1266.74 points (my perfect BUY point forecast) and the High has been 1474.51 points (My forecast High area). And if you had The Law of Cause & Effect, you would have known these two prices exactly where they come from, while The Polarity Factor System would have given you the timing.

2012 Forecast & Trading Results S&P500 & Soybeans

With a description of Prandelli's trading strategy and demonstration of his risk management system

From an article published in Trader's World magazine, Winter 2013

For some people it seems impossible to ever make money in the markets. Whatever they trade, they always seem to lose. But there is a fundamental mathematic reason that proves this does not have to be true, and this reason is simple: if you can lose money, you could win money as well, if only you traded in exactly the opposite way as you do when you lose. Everyone in their trading life, after a constant string of losses, asks themself if there is a way to trade in the opposite direction, and in this way turn the losses into profits! And the annoying thing is that there is truth to this reasoning!

But when you start to think in this manner, your mind becomes confused, and it seems almost impossible to be able to do the contrary Why is this? Because we are really not aware of our trading process. We lack precise rules, and are not disciplined, and this is the exact reason why people are not able to make money trading. It is because they really do not understand what they do wrong and why they lose money. If you understand exactly why you lose money, you will be able to learn to make profits as well. This is like a mathematically precise psychological rule. If, in a sum, you have a total of 5, with one addendum being 3, you know that the other addendum must be 2! It is the same thing with your trading. If you know why you lose, you know how to win as well.

So, following this line of reasoning, I created my own personal trading methodology. In analyzing my losses, I saw 2 major problems:

  1. I had big losses and small profits
  2. I had too many losing trades

So, I concentrated my effort to solve this problem. For those who don't know me, I use a specific price target technique which allows me to trade with small stop-losses, while leaving the profits to run, To do this, I use very precise price points (which I call Key Prices), which work by providing important support and resistance or acceleration areas. This knowledge allows me to place my trades at a specific price target which allows me to trade with very tight risk management around these points. Using this technique, I can be stopped out 1-3 times with very small losses, while waiting for the market to break away from this Key price level and begin its run, and when it does so, the profits produced are many times the amount of the 1-3 small losses taken to enter the trade at the Key point. Along with these Key prices, I follow a time forecast model given by my of Polarity Factor System, which complements the price levels with the important expected turning points in time.

To demonstrate the results obtained by following all these rules as explained in my Polarity Factor System Course, I will show you the results for an account that I was managing. I have records of all my trades on the contract of the S&P500 Future exp. March 2012, the contract ESH2 (I will summarize the results here, but for those who would like to see the specific trades, they are posted at this link: http://iaminborsa-eng.blogspot.se/2012/03/is-real-trading-possible.html). This is an account which I trade using generally only 1 contract, though in exceptional cases I used 2 or 3 contracts. From the 14th of December 2011 until the 14th of March 2012, (3 months), I gained 4782.82 Euro, which is around $6,250 US Dollars. I think this is not bad, considering that I was working with an account that started with only $14,000 US Dollars, so a return of approximately 45% in 3 months, or 15% a month on average. Also, I generally traded only 1 contract on this account, and it is not easy to create a strategy with just 1 lot. Following is a list of my trades:

Over this period, I traded 141 buy/sell lots. I pay around 3 Euro per buy or sell per contract. So I paid 141 x 3 x 2= 846 Euro in commissions. There were 67 trades with profits and 46 trades with a loss, meaning that there were 59.29% winners to 40.31% losers. Some might consider this not a very good percentage! Many people ask me what percentage of success of my strategy has, but I think this is the wrong question, though inside it is the reason why people are not able to understand why they lose money. If I can make two trades with a loss, and just one with a profit, with the end result a profit of 30 points, I can easily accept my low rate of wins with pleasure!

So, the most important thing should be evident! It is not important how high the rate of winning trades is, but how much I lose when I close a trade in loss vs. how much I win when I close a trade in profit. When I trade using my Key price points, I am able to use stop losses of only 3 points, but my average winning trade is over 20 points. So, even several losses are over compensated by just one profitable trade. This is what you need to understand and take advantage of in your trading, and is why I have said that you must always create a strategy that permits you to cut the losses and to let the profits run!

This risk management system is explained in my Polarity Factor System Course, available through Sacred Science Institute. If you have a way to indicate key price levels, you can use those points to trade very effectively using these tight stop losses. Adding a layer of timing to the system through the study of cycles taught by WD Gann, I also have an intermediate forecast model which I call my PFS Model, which indicates important turning points of several days to a couple of weeks. When I watch these Key Time Points conjoined with the market's movement around the Key Price Levels, clear and tradable indications are given as to the intermediate changes in trend.

Sometimes these changes can occur with several choppy swings at a top or a bottom, which will often leave a trader who enters too early getting stopped out before the trade begins. In this situation, you need a risk management system which will allow you to enter again, if stopped, and again, at each opportunity, so that in case the market has a sudden powerful movement, one will catch the profitable trade. But if your stops are not tight enough, your capital will be eroded, and your overall results will suffer. With my 3 point stops placed at my Key price points, I can always limit my losses, while still being in the market when it begin its run.

Now that we've discussed the Key price areas and the risk management system, let's take a look at the PFS time forecast, that I know it is the most exciting part of the study. The following chart shows the PFS Forecast for the Soybean market for 2012.

As you can see, the trend was up till July, then descended until October, then up again. We are looking at this model for the general trend, and as you can see looking the Soybean Chart, it worked well, and was a good guide to trade the trend:

The PFS was up until July, where a final top on July 22 was indicated, then a descent until October. Soybeans followed this up trend, starting the year around 1219 points and on Friday, July 20 (22 was Sunday), Soybeans closed at 1757 points. Not bad! But looking the PFS, it is time to close the position because it is down until October 10. On October 10, Soybeans was at 1523 points. Again a good hit. After October 10, the PFS is up, but Soybeans continued down in the first part of November before turning. Now Soybeans is back near the October 10th level, with an up movement from mid-November, rejoining the expected trend. I do not trade long term, I use a mid-term strategy with mid-term prices. For example, I didn't remain SHORT during the descent of November, but when the trend changed, I I entered LONG just on November 20, above 1400 points, because it was a one of my mid-term Key prices.

These are examples of the trades that are posted on my Daily Report Service. I have also now made available the PFS Forecast Bulletins for the full year of 2013 on the S&P500, Corn and Soybean Markets. These Bulletins are published by The Institute for Cosmological Economics, and include a Yearly Report where I give the PFS Models with the general trend, intermediate time turn indications, and impulse points throughout the year. The service also includes ongoing updates during the year giving the relevant Key prices to use in trading these markets. On the Sacred Science website, you will also find information about my two trading courses, The Law of Cause and Effect, and The Polarity Factor System, as well as my Forecast Bulletins, along with trading records, information about how to join my blog, and more.

Dr. Alexander Goulden
Dr. Alexander Goulden
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
Hasbrouck Space/Time
Hasbrouck Space/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
Dr. Jerome Baumring
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.
