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.
The PFS Forecast Bulletins For the Stock Market & Grain Markets
An annual forecast with ongoing yearly updates including an analysis of past PFS performance in each market
By Daniele Prandelli
I have received many requests over the years to create an ongoing Forecasting Service based upon my applications of Gann's principles and my detailed research, giving the ongoing indications that I use for my trading throughout the year. Beginning in 2013, I decided to create this Forecast Bulletin Service, am now in the third year of giving my analysis of the possible trend of the S&P500 and Grain markets with ongoing updates of Key Price Levels and trading indications.
My first year of writing these Bulletins produced great results, and I pulled 653 points out of the Soybean Market, made 173 points in Corn, and produced 58% returns in the S&P from July through October alone, which is even more significant because the market was stuck in a congestion zone and was not trending. For those who would like to see the full results of my forecasts and trading from 2013 through 2016, there are a number of links below with forecast and trading results. Above you can see my excellent Soybean Forecast for 2016 and below is the one for 2015 was also almost perfect:
In each of 2014, 2015 and 2016 my PFS Forecasts for both Corn and Soybeans have been almost perfect, calling both the highs and lows and beautifully modeling the general price movement throughout the year. You can see a review of the latest 2016 Grain Markets Forecasts here and below you will find reviews of last few year's forecast. My PFS Forecast for the Stock Market was also excellent this year, and you can read a review of my indications and analysis that I have predicted in the review of my 2016 PFS Stock Market Forecast at this link. The following chart shows my forecast on the S&P for 2016 with the red line, then the green line averages the forecast and the real market is overlaid on top. As you can see, some of the smaller wiggles may be a bit off or not as extreme, but the general cyclic pattern is very accurate:
These Bulletins are made available separately for the S&P500 Index and the Grain markets, covering Soybeans and Corn. The Stock Bulletin includes an analysis of the last 9 years of performance of the PFS Model compared to actual market data, and the Grain Bulletin the last 3 years of each market, to educate the subscriber on how to best read and trade the PFS Forecast based upon past history.
Those who are familiar with my work from either of my courses, or who have followed my trading Blog, know that as a short to intermediate term Swing Trader, I am always more focused on what the market is doing NOW, seeking real solutions for immediate trading decisions, and less concerned with what the Market "could do" within six months from now, since this is not significant for my style of trading. However, I know that there are investors, risk managers, and longer term traders for whom a yearly forecast is extremely important, and that is the reason why I am producing these Bulletins.
My trading uses my proprietary PFS Forecasting Model presented in these Bulletins combined with specific Key Price Levels as determined by my specialized application of planetary longitude lines as described in my first course, The Law of Cause & Effect. As a consequence, the most important thing one must always recognize along with any kind of time forecast, the WHEN, is WHERE any particular market is, the Key Price Levels, in order to make operative trading decisions. For me, it is not as important to know three months early that on the 13th of June I will have to buy, when I will be clearly aware of this as the time approaches. Moreover, my decision at the point of taking such a position will depend specifically upon the movements of the preceding weeks, and of the Key Price values and structures at that time.
For me, even the PFS Time Forecast is a consideration that must go along with the Key Price Levels which are so powerful and give such strong indications that with or without the Time Model they still determine more than half of my trading decisions. When these Key Prices also coincide with the Time Forecasts, as they generally do, so much the better, as I then have multiple overlays of information to trade from. It is for this reason that, as an ongoing service, I will provide updated Key Price Level data throughout the year for each market covered by the Bulletins, giving the Key Prices and Levels that I use as the market moves into new trading ranges. Integrating these prices studies with the Time Forecast provided here will give the highest probability of successful trading.
The Polarity Factor System Produces a Directional Turning Point Swing Forecast for the Year
The PFS Model, upon which the timing forecast of the markets is based, is presented in detail in Prandelli's course, The Polarity Factor System. The PFS forecast will produce the same kind of chart, though with greater detail, as the forecast charts produced by W. D. Gann in his famous Supply & Demand Letter. Many forecast letters and services give the reader multiple analyses of numerous elements in the market, which can be confusing since they present too many alternate views and options.
Contrary to this methodology, Prandelli produces one single forecast chart, just as Gann did, his PFS Model. On Gann's 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. It is a simple and clear model showing tops, bottoms, trends and relative ranges of expected movement.
Similarly, 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 gives three levels of information, first the general expected yearly trend, second, an intermediate term model like Gann's, defining the mid-term swings in the market, and third, a short-term indicator that defines the "pushes" or impulses giving extra energy to the market. The most important element of this forecast is the identification of Key turning points to watch as one is preparing to enter or exit position. These timing points when conjoined with the Key Price Levels identify high probability entry points, which allow very tight stop losses to be used producing excellent reward to risk rations. You can see the results of Prandelli's forecasts and trading over the last several years at the following links:
Once you have your timing from the PFS Forecast Model, 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 PFS Model 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 are 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. Prandelli will provide an ongoing update service throughout the year, giving the Key Price Levels that he is using for trading as the market progresses through different phases of growth, along with his current analysis of the situation, and discussion of the current time model and indications. For an example of how valuable these Key Price Levels can be, see the below links which demonstrate exactly how Prandelli used them to trade these markets in 2012-2014.
Key Price Level Examples
Following are several links which give excellent examples of the use of Prandelli's Key Price Levels. Three links give full reviews of Prandelli's Forecast Bulletins for 2013 for the S&P, Soybeans & Corn, showing exactly how he used the price levels to trade in 2013, and how they were presented in his Bulletins & Updates throughout the year. The Corn example is particularly interesting in this regard, because the actual time forecast was not so accurate that year, but the Key Price Levels still allowed him to catch and trade each of the major trends through the year.
Prandelli has maintained an Online Blog, now called his Daily Report Service, where he has documented his forecasts and trades for the past 3 years 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. The timing signals he uses in his Blog are the same as are provided in these Forecast Bulletins, so you will have access to the same signals he is using to trade. See the links below for the results of his Blog trading and for more examples of his analysis and trading insights from the past couple years:
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.
