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.
Stock and Commodity Market Forecasts February – November 2011
By Daniele Prandelli
The following forecasts and trades presented here are documented on Daniele Prandelli’s private subscription trading Blog for his paid members. These are only a selection of the complete trades made during this time, but give a good example of the general PFS Forecasts. Signals were given before the market opened, and updated during the daily session as required. These examples provide a demonstration of the information and accuracy of the PFS Forecasts. The techniques presented in The Polarity Factor System will allow you to produce the same results as are seen here. Several different techniques presented in the course will be shown.
The Polarity Factor System by Daniele Prandelli ( $2,995.00 )
A picture is worth 1000 words!
On February 22 the following forecast was posted on my private Blog:
The chart shows the indications given by the PFS Forecast, giving the dates where the up and down push should start, along with the most important insight, a clear directional indication of which way it will go.
The following chart shows the exact S&P500 movement for that period:
The PFS does NOT give just random directional turning points, but provides precise top or bottom indications, showing which direction the trend will follow, and for how long.
After February 22, the next forecast I posted was on March 16, indicating my expectations for the next low and change in trend:
The chart showed that we were at a possible Low area, with secondary low on the 23rd, and projected a minimum Target for the up-trend of 1360 points, where the High was projected in the first days of May according to the PFS Forecast.
This chart shows the S&P500 over the following weeks:
Here you see that the initial indicated bottom was the exact bottom, and the secondary bottom on the 23rd did occur as the first pullback of the uptrend. The price level projection was 10 points off the exact high forecasted 120 points below the move. The PFS projected top in the beginning of May also correct. This was a massive 120 point move on the S&P500, so you can imagine how much profit the Blog has been able to produce (See: trading records) with the careful and meticulous trading strategy presented in this new course.
On April 14, I posted a new forecast, where I’ve highlight a missed up-push on April 11, 2011. It is not unusual for the PFS to miss 1 out of 6 of the projected turns, giving us a 5 out of 6 accuracy rate, 83%, which I round down to an approximately 80% accuracy rate. However, these situations do not present much of a problem, because the course explains how manage these situations so that they produce very little or no loss, thanks to the price confirmation. A realistic trading strategy shows all possible situations, since I’m aware that it is impossible to be infallible. For this reason the Price Lines play a fundamental role in my strategy.
The green line shows my continued PFS timing forecast for April into early May:
The following chart shows what happened to the S&P500 in April:
It is evident that the general trend was forecasted extremely well. The projected Low on April 14-15 is made on April 18, just a bit off. Then market pushes up, rising until April 21, where it pauses over the weekend until April 25, where a new up-push was shown by the PFS until the top in early May.
The following chart was posted on my Private Blog on 2 May giving my forecast into mid-May:
And this is the S&P500 for the next weeks:
The turn on the 2nd was accurate, beginning the downtrend. The 3rd extended to the 5th and continued to the 10th instead of the 9th, and the then the trend continued downward bottoming on the 17th just as projected by the PFS, before beginning a new uptrend. This image clearly shows the power of the PFS timing indications!
In June, I was expecting the first half of the month to be weak, with a final rally at the end, According to the PFS Forecast, combined with the others studies, and I posted this forecast chart:
On my Post of June 13th, I said: “It will be interesting to pay attention to the prices to discover the best point to buy for next up-trend. At the moment the PFS forecast says that there could be a good buying point between June 20-27.”
And on June 17 I wrote: “We are now in the second half of June, where my forecast indicates a Low. Also prices that we have seen confirm this scenario, because the area of 1270 is a very important price level. My forecast is now looking for a Low exactly between today and Monday June 20 (but the low might have been made yesterday) then I'm waiting a Low around the 27th of June. I don't know which will be the lower Low, but all are confirming the importance of this phase of the market as a good buying point.”
This is the S&P500 over the first 20 days of June 2011:
It is evident how the forecast was absolutely precise in these circumstances!
And this chart shows all of June, to also see that the last rally was forecasted correctly:
Not only was the descent forecasted, but also the rally that began after June 27 when the Low phase was completed. In July, the market advanced as predicted, making a High on July 7th. Thanks to a study that I present in the course, on the Blog I advised my clients to wait until July 17th, and told them that if it was a Low, it would be a excellent confirmation to BUY.
This is what I wrote on the following dates in July (I remind you that July 17 was Sunday):
5 July:“…paying attention to July 17, possible change in trend.”
12 July:“About the forecast, I would prefer to wait until July 15-18 to take an aggressive Long trade.”
14 July:“A descent until tomorrow or Monday could be a good opportunity to buy”
18 July:“The market arrived to my July 17th date with a lateral/Low movement. This would be a statistical confirming for the next rally.” “I'm LONG with a stop under today's Low.”
During August, I was in India. I had been waiting for a descent after July 26-30. The market began to descend early, showing weakness, which gave me some doubt. The PFS indicated a Low on 8-10 August. I did not trade while I was away, so I will pick back up the analysis in September when I had returned.
In September the green lines show the trades presented on the Blog, where the PFS forecast indicated a negative second half of the month:
In October, on exactly October 4, the Blog bought on the precise day that we now know was the Low of the year. I highlighted in my Blog how important this Low was, noting that it was possibly the Low of the year.
The Post for this day indicated a key price at 1074.5 points and a BUY SIGNAL above 1097 points. The Low was 1074.77, only .22 points off my key price and I bought above 1097 points. This move produced a powerful trend that ran 200 points with no significant reversals.
Here is the chart:
In November I was waiting for a decline until the week of November 21-25. The PFS forecasted an important Low between November 24-25, and then an up-push.
On November 1st, I wrote: “for the long term, last half of November remains the best moment to buy. But with a market that is so volatile I’m not able to say now where that will be with reliability”
Needless to say, that the strong rally began on November 28 after the low on Friday, November 25 did not escape us, we caught it near the low, and the profits have been large and fast, with the market running over 100 points in just 6 days. Another big and powerful trade!
In this new course, The Polarity Factor System, my intent is to teach and clearly communicate all my studies and tools that I use to make the above forecast and trades, organized in a clear and logical way which will allow you to produce the same results that I have both in forecasting and trading.
These trades were documented on Prandelli’s private subscribers Blog over this period, and can be viewed there for confirmation. Signals were given before the market opened, and updated during the daily session as required.
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.
