There are two quite different sides to Gann analysis, the deeply theoretical, seeking to understand the essence of the science behind Gann’s market theory, the Law of Vibration, and the outright practical, looking for working tools and techniques that will help with applied trading. Though our greatest interest is in the cosmological theory behind Gann’s work, and the universe in general, we also specialize on the practical tools that traders need to specifically analyze and trade the markets. Some Gann experts excel at theory, while others are simply practical traders who are less focused on ideas in deference to trading techniques. This category will specifically focus upon the books and courses that provide very specific and applied tools from Gann’s toolbox used for real time trading. Some may explore deeper theoretical principles and some may just focus on pure trading tools, but this category will give working techniques to better fill the arsenal of any trader. We often recommend that new Gann students focus first on developing a practical trading ability, so that they can fund their future research with profits from their trades, and then also apply new insights from their theoretical study to their practical trading as they advance. This section will help to identify those most practical tools.
Dan Ferrera is one of the most respected market analysts and educators in the Gann field. For 20 years his works have been some of the most popular in our catalog. Aside from being one of the clearest interpreters of Gann, he also has produced his own advanced work, The Spirals of Growth & Decay, developed prior to his analysis and presentation of Gann’s theories. For those seeking a solid, Master’s Degree level education in technical Gann analysis, we cannot recommend anything more highly than Ferrera’s works.
Ferrera has written detailed course on every angle of Gann’s work and provides a fast track into a deep understanding of each field of Gann’s work as well as advanced topics in technical analysis. He has works on cycles analysis, Gann’s Square of 9, Gann’s Mass Pressure Charts, one on risk management and Gann’s swing trading system, another on the details of Gann’s complex geometrical and mathematical tools, one on astrological Bible interpretation, on teaching how to create yearly forecasts like his own yearly Outlooks, which give a prediction for each year, and more. If you are wanting to get a first taste of Gann and to save yourself years of hard work putting together his ideas, Ferrera is a perfect place to start, and walking through his series of fantastic is like getting a Master’s degree in Gann and technical analysis.
W.D. Gann Works
W. D. Gann’s private courses represent the most important of all of Gann’s writings, and go into much greater detail than his public book series, with which most people are only acquainted. They should be carefully studied in their full detail, as they contain the deepest insights into Gann’s theories ever presented. Stock traders must be sure to study all the commodity courses and vice versa, since Gann often put techniques that applied to all markets in only one or another course.
We stock the complete collection of the works of W.D. Gann, both his courses and books. Our set of Gann’s courses were initially collected and compiled by Dr. Baumring and Donald Mack in the 1980’s from dozens of original rare private course that were distributed by Gann throughout his career. Many people mistakenly think that Gann just wrote two courses called the Master Stock Course and Master Commodity Course. This couldn’t be further from the truth! Each of Gann’s “courses” were actually small, “sections” of a few pages to a few dozen pages, individually bound in paper folders. These various pieces were then compiled into different sets which he sold as various collections at different prices to different students over the decades. Some were more commonly sold to all students, while other were more secretive and sold only to close private students who often signed non-disclosure agreements, and paid exorbitantly high prices. It is these rarest pieces that make the difference between one collection and another.
The later courses Gann sold in the 1940’s and that he “called” the Master Courses were nothing but various compiled collections of these smaller pieces, and would vary according to who purchased them and what price they paid, and were never set until after Gann’s death when purchased by Ed Lambert. For instance, there are pieces that Gann advertised in the 1950’s as “new” like his Master Mathematical Formula for Market Predictions, or his rare #3 Master Time Factor Course which were never included in his “Master Courses”, and similarly were never included with any of the Lambert Gann courses sold by Lambert or the Jones’ from the 60’s until now. So these “master” courses are and have always been incomplete collections. Further, the Lambert Gann courses sold by Billy Jones through the turn of the century, were retyped and re-edited by Billy so that they did not provide the original unadulterated content that Gann produced, making them unreliable, edited versions. Our editions are exact facsimiles of the original copies sold by Gann, with no editing or adulteration of any kind.
Our 6 Volume set of Gann’s Collected Writings was further supplemented by new finds of rare pieces, like those mentioned above, rediscovered by the Institute over the past 30 years since Baumring’s death, and comprises the most complete and the only properly organized set of courses that are available. Gann has very particular sets that he sold only to his higher end clientele, placed in specific order to provide a particular logic to his work. Our collection maintains this order and includes a further collection of rare and historical courses, letters and private materials which make our collection the most complete and important collection available. Serious students of Gann should beware most “supposed” collections of Gann’s writings as most are unauthorized, incomplete, and distorted representations of his work, and cannot be trusted. Our set it the most reliable set of Gann’s unadulterated and most important work available…
While W.D. Gann’s own original work is a critical element for any Gann researcher’s collection, most people will find Gann’s work to be extremely vague, complicated and difficult to penetrate on their own. In our experience, it can take many years, if not decades for the ordinary analyst to, by themselves, digest and apply the deeper techniques of Gann’s, without significant help by well-seasoned analysts and traders who have dedicated years to decoding and creating practical tools from Gann’s techniques. This is why there is a fundamental and valuable secondary market of works presenting and developing Gann’s ideas, and making them accessible to any trader. We believe that the best teachers in this field are not competitors, but are fellow contributors to an ongoing field of research, and that their work is mutually supportive and will provide expanded insights when more material is understood.
We maintain the largest collection of secondary works on Gann Theory of anyone in the field. Many of these books we publish ourselves, and are written by top Gann experts and experienced Gann traders from across the world. However, we also review works written by other Gann experts across the field, and add to our catalog any material we consider to be of high quality and importance from the global community of Gann analysts. With our experience in the field, we are well qualified and to provide a peer review of these materials, so as to filter out the best quality work from that of a lower caliber, and then present these to our clientele who demand the highest standards. So any book or course that you find in this catalog can generally be considered to be of the upper echelon of works on Gann analysis. We have new authors submit their research to us ongoingly, so that we are always adding new items to our catalog with fresh insights, alternative techniques or new ideas. In this way we are able to save our clients significant wasted funds in exploring the territory at their own cost.
The Earliest Financial Astrology Manuscripts Fred White - W.D. Gann - Sepharial - Professor Weston
1901 - 1930
The Earliest Financial Astrology Manuscripts by Fred White, Professor Weston, W. D. Gann, Sepharial ( $1,000.00 )
It is with great excitement that we release this extremely rare collection of financial astrology manuscripts, for we feel that they represent one of the most important discoveries ever in this field, both in terms of astro-finance history, and astrological trading application. General consensus within the astro-economic community traces the primary development of modern financial astrology to around the 1920's, the first time Gann mentioned a planet being in a 1921 Forecasting Course. Professor Weston's breakthrough work, Forecasting the New York Stock Market, also dates from 1921 to 1923, and in the 1920's Sepharial produced most of his known Arcana or Keys to the markets, though he states in his advertisements that these systems had been in development since 1898.
In Gann's 1909 Ticker Interview, he introduces The Law of Vibration and claims that Natural Philosophy is the basis of his system, leading to speculation as to whether Gann developed his astrological methods later in his career, or whether the Law of Vibration was actually a veil for the more esoteric and astrological work that he and his circle were practicing from the outset. Until recently, there was no clear evidence to definitively confirm either position, however, we have uncovered a number of new pieces of information which will bring about a serious reconsideration of this question, these manuscripts providing the most essential clues.
The first manuscript, written in 1902, gives us a startlingly new and radically altered insight into the techniques used by the forefathers of astro-finance, in that it is the most advanced and important single document on astro-finance that we have ever seen, including everything written in the ensuing 100 years. The second two manuscripts, written in approximately 1917 and 1930, add to the mystery by presenting advance astro-finance methodologies and insights that have not been duplicated in any other work since. Interestingly, the final undated manuscript, marked "Confidential" across the bottom, is on Market Trends & The Volume Rule, and is written in a style and with a content surprisingly similar to Gann's. Unfortunately, there is no mention of an author in any of these documents, and the 1917 & 1930 pieces are missing their title page, perhaps to conceal a revealing stationery header? The original manuscripts are all in the same format, typed carbon copies on onion skin paper, with occasional blue and red pencil lines highlighting important points, something Gann used to do in some of his books and original courses.
Gann's Missing Astrological Courses?
We immediately wondered whether these manuscripts could possibly be Gann's missing astrological courses, which everyone has long dreamt might exist, but which no one has ever seen. So far, we have been unable to determine whether or not these manuscripts could possibly have been written by Gann, but further discoveries have confirmed that they definitely come from someone within Gann's immediate circle. Recently we uncovered another cache of the rarest materials including a set of ellipses from Gann's personal collection. Along with these Gann Ellipses, we acquired a collection of the rarest books from Gann's Recommended Reading List, for which we had been searching over many years. Contained within this find were new clues to some of the questions asked above, and to the possible authorship of the manuscripts.
Concerning the manuscripts, we discovered in Fred White's Guide To Astrology, one of the Gann List books written in 1901, a section on the conjoined use of heliocentric and geocentric astrology in the markets, which was directly copied into the 1902 manuscript. This implies either that White is the author of the manuscripts, or that the author copied this one page section from White. The author also makes reference to White's Ephemeris and to certain pages in White's Guide to Astrology. If Fred White is the author, this opens up some fascinating doorways of consideration.
Fred White & W.D. Gann
We know Gann and White had some connection because White's Guide To Astrology is included on Gann's Recommended Reading List, and it is known that Gann and Johndro worked together, and Johndro was a regular contributor to White's The Adept: Journal of American Astrology, along with Professor Weston, whose Forecasting manuscript is rumored to have been the one item locked in Gann's office safe, so it is no large step to infer that this entire circle was well known to each other, and probably in direct contact. In the 1917 manuscript, the author makes reference to his correspondence with Sepharial, and knowing that Gann also knew Sepharial, the circle continues to tighten.
At the time this first manuscript was written, Gann was only 23 years old, so the likelihood that he had already done this level of astrological research is slim, if not impossible. We have heard that Gann began to study astrology in New Orleans before ever arriving on the East Coast, so the idea of his seeking out fellow astrologers upon his arrival is a given. Gann was known throughout his life to travel the world seeking information and knowledgeable contacts, including flights around the country in his own airplane, meeting up with the like of Elbert Benjamin (also known as CC Zain) to collaborate on research. His involvement with the Freemasons, particularly at the 33rd degree, would further inevitably connect him with a vast network of serious esoteric individuals across the world.
Gann & Gregorius
Another such likely associate is the Gann List author, Gregorius, from whose Master Key of Destiny, also recently discovered, we've now learned was not just an astrologer, but a market analyst, for in his 1924 Master Key it mentions that:
This service includes: Semi-Annual Stock, Bond and General Market Forecasts $250; Grain & Wheat Futures: A Reliable Guide to Fluctuations Of the Domestic Grain Market $250; Mundane Forecasts Giving Accurate Outlines of the Fluctuations to be Expected in International Trade, Finance & Events $250.
These are very weighty price tags in 1924 dollars, similar to Gann's $5000 price tag for his courses in the 1940's. Unfortunately, no one today has ever seen or even heard of these works, so we have no idea what interesting secrets may lie hidden in these lost treasures.
Millionaires don't use astrology, Billionaires do!! JP Morgan
Many have wondered whether Gann developed all of his theories on his own, or whether he had some sort of an intellectual benefactor. The existence of these manuscripts at the outset of Gann's career demonstrates to us that there were certainly qualified individuals who had thoroughly mastered Financial Astrology at the turn of the 20th century. Shockingly, we feel that these manuscripts will demonstrate that our favorite forefathers of astro-finance actually possessed a more penetrating and profound insight into financial astrology than any but the most advanced astro-analysts of today, and perhaps more so than they. This proves to us that these deeper insights were beyond a doubt kept extremely secret, as almost no record of any of these facts has passed down to us today, only Sepharial's two Arcana and Weston's work, and now these manuscripts, one predating the others by 20 years. Who has ever heard of Gregorius' financial reports, and would he not have had a course as well? And what of J.P. Morgan's astrologer, Evangeline Adams? Nothing survives from her pertaining to financial analysis, yet she certainly did something for old J.P, who was the one who said, "Millionaires don't use astrology, Billionaires do!" These occasional discoveries reveal to us that there is probably more that we do not know of the secrets of those times than all that which we do.
Of particular interest are the descriptions given by the author of himself and his forecasting and trading experience. At one point the author explains:
During the period from Sept. 1st to Dec. 24th, 1901, the Author was with a large Brokerage House in Boston, and his Forecasts on American Copper were so surprisingly correct, that he was accused of having information from an inside source. After having traced the movements in the Stock Market back for fifty years, and noting the position of the planets, we are convinced that the system of directions which I use, taken altogether with transits are almost infallible. For several years while Sugar Stock was active, we successfully called every important move, by using the Heliocentric position of the planets. The Author has been able to prognosticate every day correctly without one failure for six consecutive weeks. The student will be able to find many more INFALLABLE rules to follow, he will make mistakes, but his correctness on the rules given will demonstrate that the planets absolutely influence.
This would be a very impressive record for an expert today, yet the author accomplished this in 1901 using only financial astrology, and with no computer. The system with which he accomplished this is laid out in this manuscript, a lucid exposition of a precise set of astrological rules, to follow in a specific order, to forecast stocks, bonds and commodities, backtested over 50 years of data, and traded professionally. The author uses an integration of Heliocentric and Geocentric astrology, which Baumring pointed out in modern times had likewise been used by Gann. He states in a section entitled "For Speculation", that:
The Author, however, does not solely rely upon Heliocentric positions, there is no doubt whatever that the heliocentric system shows the tendency of all speculative markets. The Geocentric system has a few indications which are of great value in forming an opinion at times, but without the Heliocentric system for speculation, the astrologer is as badly off as he would be without his head.
The section from which this quote is taken is an exact duplicate of a page in Fred White's Guide To Astrology.
Rarely Taught Techniques Uncovered
This 1902 manuscript is even more original in its integration of a number of techniques rarely taught or used today, such as, elevations, latitude & longitude, the parallel aspect, right ascension, declination, planetary days & hours, transits, directions, and the nodes of the planets, elegantly weaving them into a system with clear and precise rules of application for forecasting the markets, and including examples from the wheat and sugar markets. An example of the sophistication of his methods is shown in the following statement:
All speculative markets, Stock, Railroads and Mines, are governed to a great extent by the Elevation of the Planets; by Elevation, I refer to Delineation, and considering both Declination and Longitude, I find that Declination is more important than Longitude. The Parallel aspect is more powerful than a conjunction, but all aspects depend somewhat upon the conditions which exist at the ingress of the Sun into Aries or Libra, and at the time of a New Moon.
The next two manuscripts are equally interesting in that they outline two further fully intact astrological systems employing entirely different methodologies and components than the first system. Unfortunately the originals of each of these is missing it's title page, but the systems are no less comprehensible for the lack of them. The second manuscript, from 1917, uses indicators, significators, the radix, transition points and directions to determine the daily and weekly trends of the markets. Interestingly, this manuscript contains an author's aside, ***Remarks enclosed are from notes made from personal correspondence with Sepharial***.
Again the rules are presented in clear sequence according to their specific importance in determining a correct judgment. There follow intriguing definitions such as, "A BOOM is caused when the INDICATOR meets with successive good aspects or conjunctions of various planets without any interposing bad aspects to break the series, a SLUMP being the opposite", and illuminating rules like, "All transits are to be interpreted in terms of the LAST major conjunction of the planets in that sign," another Gann technique uncovered by Baumring. The author even goes as far as to observe aspects to Antares and Aldebaran. He affirms that:
This market has been under observation now for over 20 years and there has never been any great rise or fall which did not coincide with the indications from transits over the Significators and the Ephemeral aspects to the Indicator.
The 1930 Manuscript & New Moon Market Movements
The third manuscript, written in 1930, contains another complete system of reading market trends according to the New Moon, as different from the other two as could be, yet original in its methodology and application. This section presents a swing by swing analysis of the indications of the New Moon on the market for a 5 year period from 1897 to 1902, and demonstrates how to read the signs to determine direction and change in trend using only the moon. It is loaded with fascinating insights like, "An important discovery made in connection with these researches is that two New Moons in the same sign and in the same year invariably shows the market trend for the ensuing 12 months." Other statements sound as if they came straight from Gann, such as, "Always bear in mind that if a stock continues gains or losses for three consecutive days, it is an indication that a change of trend will then follow. Always watch the volume of sales." Then more interesting astrology, "Planets in declination and when forming parallels are more potent in their effects than the aspects in longitude. Observe that during the latter part of 1930, every lunar conjunction with Uranus will be an occultation."
Near the end there are some curious statements concerning cycles. First, in the 1901 market analysis, he notes, "The market has been advancing since 1896, and we know that it moves in ten year cycles, and as five years is a half cycle and prices are the highest in history, we can naturally expect that a good decline will follow." He continues with, "While some commentators follow the theory that the Stock Market is influenced by ten year cycles, astrological principles would seem to suggest a 11.9 cycle coinciding with the perihelion of Jupiter." And then, "The market problem involves various cycles impinging upon each other and one cannot lay down any empirical rules until these cycles are carefully computed."
The Earliest Application of Fourier Sequences to Market Analysis
Professor Weston was surely the commentator to whom the author refers, as his work represents the earliest application of Fourier Sequences to market analysis, by breaking down component cycle waves and combining them to produce a composite model. Weston was a regular contributor to White's journal, The Adept. Weston was also one of the first to propose a theory of the 10 year cycle, actually with two different versions of the ten year pattern. The first is his computation based on 50 years of data, of a series composed of 14, 20 and 28 months, called the Venus term and based upon the Heliocentric system. The second is a sequence which divides the Jupiter/Saturn cycle into 10 irregular parts, but follows the Geocentric system, so again we see that this inner circle all used a combined Helio and Geo-centric system. Professor Weston was a great influence on Gann, implied by his manuscript being locked in Gann's safe, and he may have been the one who introduced Gann to Fourier cycle theory, providing Gann with the foundation for his 10 year cycle with its multiples. In any event, these manuscripts help to illustrate further theoretical and historical connections between the icons of esoteric finance.
The final manuscript presenting rules on Market Trends, price and volume trading pointers, and The Volume Rule, is so similar to Gann that it could almost be straight out of one of his courses. The principles and presentation of the rules on market volume will be so familiar to readers of Gann, that one is left with a strong impression that either Gann copied the style of this author, or the author borrowed this information from Gann. Reminiscent of the old master is the following quote:
Stocks have habits and characteristics which are distinct as those of human beings or animals. It is worth while becoming acquainted with those habits in order to anticipate stock movements.
With corporation profits at the expense of the lambs, great buildings are constructed.
The conclusion we've drawn from these insights into this network of connections leads us to believe that the financial forecasting community of the early 1900s was a highly advanced and tightly knit community of individuals who regularly collaborated and shared insights. This is not unlike today, where most everyone publicly participating in Gann research is somewhat aware of the other players, with many in personal contact, except that today there are considerably more players in the game. With the discovery of these manuscripts, we are left with as many questions as answers, such as, if, when and to what degree all these individuals collaborated together, and at what point, and by whom were the foundational elements of modern financial astrology developed? The difficulty in tracking or confirming these connections lies in the secrecy with which this deeper material was held, and the elusiveness of the documentation that proves it, which if not altogether lost or destroyed, then remains in private hands and is, sadly, unlikely to reach the public forum.
We hope these Earliest Financial Astrology Manuscripts, published here for the first time, over 100 years after their original authorship, will provide a deeper insight into the minds of the early market masters, and introduce us, for the first time to the hidden techniques of financial astrology as used in the earliest days of this tradition. For the reader's further research and comparison, we have included the original source works mentioned here, of Fred White, Professor Weston, Sepharial, as well as all the known astrological writings and charts of W.D. Gann. We hope everyone enjoys, and benefits from this excursion into the minds and astrological vision of the forefathers of financial astrology.
This collection of 4 rare onion skin manuscripts were found amongst W. D. Gann's papers in the Lambert-Gann collection BEFORE it was purchased by Billy Jones.
These manuscripts represent some of the earliest writings on astroeconomics, and along with them, we have collected the other earliest writings on the subject by peers and assocciateds of Gann's. Together this colletion includes the most complete set of important early writings on Financial Astrology known.
Dr. Goulden takes a different approach to market analysis than most normal traders and educators. As a Cambridge educated scholar, Goulden is interested in deep principles and in exploring the foundations and implications of both trading techniques and the systems behind them. Before he was ever interested in the markets, he was asked by a friend why Gann’s tools and system are considered to be based upon metaphysical principles. He found this question intriguing and engaged in deep research in the field to answer this question. In this process he recreated a new set of tools based upon principles of Ancient Geometry and Celestial Mechanics. His tools are taken from the same sources as Gann’s and are quite powerful, but are slightly different from Gann’s, so that traders often use them as non-correlated cross-confirmation tools giving similar technical indications but from different perspectives.
His work is deep and has many layers of application and exploration that can be derived from it. His latest work on financial astrology, The Secrets of the Chronocrators, looks back to the astrological and astronomical systems of the ancients, reviving the more mathematical and technical astrology of the Great Masters of the medieval and prior times. Exploring principles like Spherical Astronomy and subtle movements of the Solar System, it seeks to develop a more advanced and scientific system of astrology determination as distinguished from the simpler forms that are generally known. It represents a new movement to re-explore the deeper scientific systems of the ancients that were lost in the press towards the development of a purely mechanical science.
Goulden is a superb educator and the most active Forum moderator that we have seen, with each of his Forums for his courses having 1000’s of posts with detailed questions and answers, deviling deeply into further and new fields of research beyond what is presented in his courses. His Online Forums serve as an advanced classroom where the details of his theories are discussed and elaborated and where students share their research and work with each other while overseen by Goulden, who continually presents new ideas and suggestions.
Hasbrouck Space and Time
One of our great historical discoveries is the Hasbrouck Space-Time Archives, a collection of rare research materials and forecast letters lost for over 30 years. This research develops a new theory of market influence based upon Solar Field Force Theory that was developed during the birth of the space age. The Hasbroucks were deeply connected to the esoteric and financial market communities from the 1920’s through the 1970’s, and contributed a new and recontextualized presentation of information taken from older original esoteric sources. They present a new field of study of solar phenomena, space weather prediction, earthquake prediction and market forecasting.
Muriel Hasbrouck was the inspiring force behind the research, which a foundation in Theosophy and trained as a classical pianist, she pursued an interest in original source works in astrology, through the turn of the 19th century into the early 20’s. She studies with greats like Walter Russell, Paul Foster Case, Aleister Crowley, and Israel Regardie within the esoteric fields. In the market realms she was close with many of the great analysts of her day like Edson Gould, Edward Dewey, Hamilton Bolton, SA Nelson, and more. She and her husband Louis produced a well-received forecasting letter for 30 years called Space Time Forecasting of Economic Trends, and are now quite famous for forecasting the exponential bull market of the 90’s and subsequent crash 50 years in advance! Their theories of Solar influence upon human and earthly experience through geomagnetic influences still lie at the cutting edge of scientific speculation.
Dr. Jerome Baumring
The work of Dr. Baumring is the core inspiration upon which this entire website is based. Baumring is the only known modern person to have cracked the code behind WD Gann’s system of trading and market order. However, even further, Baumring rediscovered and elaborated the system of scientific cosmology at the root of Gann’s Law of Vibration. There is absolutely no other Gann teaching that goes anywhere near as deep as Baumring’s work, or that even so much as attempts to approach the core ideas developed by Baumring. This study is for those who are interested in the mysteries behind the markets and the ordering system behind the universe itself. This is the study of cosmological theory on its deepest level, and of the interaction between man and the cosmos in which he lives, explored through an examination of causation and propagation of forces in the financial markets.
Dr. Baumring’s course program is not easy, and should not be approached without the willingness to commit at least a few years to the study. It is a long and detailed course, requiring the equivalent level of research and difficulty as most PhD programs, but in the field of Gann Analysis, which is not taught at any university. It requires many years of challenging work including the reading of many dozens (if not 100’s) of books required to develop the foundations needed to understand Gann’s approach to the markets. It is a very serious study that should only be approached by those willing to dedicate themselves to intense thinking and vast research across many fields of knowledge including: astronomy, biology, physics, finance, cycles, wave mechanics, geometry, mathematics, astrology, numerology, number theory, numerous esoteric and alternative scientific theories, and much, much more. Baumring summarized his system by the term “Numerical Astrophysics” in an attempt to give a modern name to an ancient theory that Gann himself had discovered.
Of all the analysts and traders we have known, the most advanced have all come to their understanding through following the lead of Dr. Baumring, or through having gone through a similar and parallel study and path of research to his. His teachings represent the “best of the best” of all material on Gann publicly available, but it will not give up its secrets to a mere superficial perusal. Baumring does not spell out simple explanations of how Gann’s techniques work, but rather leads his students into the depth of the science behind the system, while slowly elaborating how the techniques build upon this deeper science. For those seeking a fast path to the application of Gann exoteric trading principles, this is NOT it! Baumring’s work is not merely some market trading program, and indeed if approached this way may be found to be dissatisfactory.
Baumring himself often said to his students, “If you only are looking to make money, don’t bother studying Gann, it’s too difficult. Simply study swing trading systems, risk management and options strategies, and you can make all the money you want to make.” (Note: we have excellent books on these alternatives…) There are much easier and more direct methods to learn to effectively trade the markets than studying Gann. Those in more of a hurry to apply Gann’s work to trading may want to begin with the work of Ferrera or one of our most applied analysts, like Prandelli or Gordon Roberts, and save the Baumring work for a later time to explore at your leisure.
