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.
Author’s Introduction From – Gann Science: The Periodic Table & The Law of Vibration
By Eric Penicka
Gann Science: The Periodic Table & The Law of Vibration by Eric Penicka ( $4,500.00 )
Author’s Introduction & Overview
Many of you, as I, have been down a very similar path in our efforts to understand the secrets of the legendary trader W.D. Gann, and the other masters from the past.
The reason you are here at Sacred Science Institute is because of your interest, your own personal efforts, and your own ongoing curiosity and desire to learn what you can about the methods of the masters.
Many of us who initially attempt to author a book in order to bring certain ideas forward have no formal education or basis upon which to generate “authority or expertise” for this specialized subject matter. There is no accredited university, no training ground, no “resume” to present to qualify on as a Gann expert.
For me, or for any other “Gann author” to claim expertise is foolish. None of us can ever really prove our methods of what Gann was thinking or doing in his time. All we can do is demonstrate our thoughts and methods and let you, the reader, test them and accept or reject them for yourself.
Not everyone can trade everything. Your method has to be in sync with your personal psychology and belief system or you will not be able to implement it in the market successfully. What’s good for one is not good for all because we are all different in our thinking, risk tolerance, and ability to act on it.
What is learned is earned through the school of personal research and testing. Knowledge is developed over years of study, reading both exoteric and esoteric material and trying to meld the two into an understanding of what Gann and the masters may have been doing, and where they got it from.
This path of research has been a pursuit of mine for over 30 years. On and off, dead ends and roadblocks too numerous to mention lay along that path. Insights are gleaned gradually, and small steps forward are made with the occasional epiphany helping to keep the mind focused and motivating oneself to continue to try to move forward to finding and understanding more of this arcane wisdom.
As clients of Sacred Science Institute, I know many of you have developed an interest in this Gann subject that goes much beyond trading. The deeper one explores, the more the secrets are revealed, and the less important the market becomes as you realize you have come into contact with something far bigger and far greater than what you were originally looking for.
In my personal experience, whatever revelations, for lack of a better word, that I have had, have not come from within, but have come from the source of all, the creative intelligence of the universe, or call it God. No matter what religion, or spiritual process one uses, the source of all knowledge comes from the creator. If I had not realized this, I could have never put this work together.
In the introduction to my book, I have two quotes. One from Paracelsus, and one from Jesus in the New Testament.
Here is the first part of that introduction:
Gann Science, The Law of Vibration and the Periodic Table From the Ticker Interview
“Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you. For everyone who asks receives; the one who seeks finds; and to the one who knocks, the door will be opened.” – Matthew 7:7-8 New International Version (NIV)
This writing is the culmination of many days and hours of research and testing.
Anyone understanding natural law, understands that man does not have any original ideas.
Idea's, discoveries, and understanding only come from the God source, the life energy force of the universe. We are all one small slice of the same thing.
Great minds of science or any other field were receivers of the ideas and concepts because they had developed the ability to connect to the Source of creative power either consciously, or subconsciously, for it to be given to them.
"All knowledge comes from the stars (the universal mind). Men do not invent or create ideas: the ideas exist and men are able to grasp them." Paracelsus
After much reading, research, and contemplation, I bring to you my interpretation of W.D. Gann's famously quoted "Law of Vibration".
In reviewing Gann's words from the Ticker, it is clear his market application was based on math and science.
No hocus pocus, no astrology, just math and science. In order not to confuse the issue, the simplest thing to do is explore the science that was available to Gann before 1908. This is a sound base that will allow us to know what he may have known. We will also look at science from another angle post 1909. That may help us with the interpretation of the law from some later sources.
This is a book about science and the exploration of natural law and its further application to markets.
The definition of what constitutes natural law may not agree with the definition of natural law we all learned in school. The research done for this work has changed my current understanding of cosmogony in a very big way.
In order to understand what Gann was doing, his words in the Ticker point us to certain areas of study.
Those comments bring us to the work of Newlands, Mendeleev, Duncan, Gurdjieff, Keely, and Russell.
A sound basis of understanding of the theories of these men is necessary to make the corresponding translation to the market. There is also some great modern literature which will be credited in the Bibliography at the end of the book.
I will not pretend I am an expert, or a scientist, or say I have all the answers, or understand all the facets of the science to be looked at herein. I will not pretend that I fully understand the totality of the Law of Vibration. It is a complex phenomenon, in totality it is fully beyond the grasp of the finite intelligence of the human conscious mind.
This work contains a significant summary of the important parts of the science of the periodic table, vibration, and music theory. The overview is necessary to allow a reader unfamiliar with these topics, to have a rounded knowledge base of the science.
This base will then allow us to create and translate that science via the Law of Correspondence into a market application which will allow a trader to trade with a high success rate on entries and exits in the manner that I believe Gann did. My experience has shown me that, with practice, a trader can develop an 80% success rate using these techniques.
The science involved is very complex and I have tried to the best of my ability to consolidate it to make it as easy as possible to understand., at least as much as is necessary to have a grounded foundation as we work into the application.
Many readers will be seasoned traders or Gann researchers. Many may be beginners in the field. Hopefully, my summation and presentation will work to the understanding of all, no matter the level of background or experience.
As Mathew quoted Jesus above, "Seek and you shall find, knock and the door will be opened to you.”
Nothing truer was ever said, as knocking enough will eventually bring the answer to you. The universal mind of The One is very generous, and will grant that which we ask of It, once we possess the key of knowing how to ask.
It is an honor and a privilege for me to be able to be the one to bring this information forward. Any insight you may gain from this work, I hope you will forward it to me so that I may further my knowledge from your thoughts as well.
I truly hope you will enjoy it and be able to utilize it in the markets to your benefit!
Jesus, Gann, and Walter Russell have told us how to ask God for what we want. To open the door, we must learn how to ask, and it shall be given. Learning how to ask is much more important than anything we can do individually. Our small minds and large egos can get in the way of receiving an important download from the greatest computer in the universe.
The term, Law of Vibration, is a term that has many meanings to many different people. The term is confusing as many will associate concepts that were outside of Gann’s words to fall under the large umbrella of the LOV.
In this work, I have only taken from Gann’s own words to form a hypothesis of what the LOV is.
Anything outside of what Gann said, is not under my LOV umbrella.
Since everything is related to everything else, the harmonics between various things like astrology, astronomy, math, science, cycles, even traditional technical analysis like Fibonacci, etc., all will work at some point. People take these correlations or harmonic relationships and place them all under the umbrella of LOV, even though that is not what they may be. This is what confuses the definition of what LOV really is.
My goal when writing this book, was to not let anything outside of what Gann said, get in the way of the definition of the LOV.
I have attempted to explain this in this work to the best of my ability.
The book is broken into segments.
The scientific background is developed in the early chapters to give the reader the base to understand the market application which is developed out further in the book.
This may seem boring to some, but is a necessary integral piece of understanding what will follow.
The basis of the law, intro to music theory, the science of Gurdjieff, John Keely, and Walter Russell are explored.
There is a chapter devoted to Luo Clements, taking a look at his Ancient Science of Numbers theory.
Other chapters look at developing time cycles, Composite cycles, and Gravity centers.
The latter part develops a theory on what Gann meant as Volume as the third dimension, and the fourth dimension.
The book culminates with a chapter on how to synthesize the material into a trading application.
Along with the base LOV market application, other things are covered which the reader may or may not want to implement in a trading plan. Other pieces of science are covered that are there to verify the LOV concepts that are presented.
Many correlations to The Bible and other books are given, and some of the mysteries that have been pursued in the Gann Internet groups are explained.
The Jonah Riddle, the 3 days and 3 nights, the time, times, half a time from Daniel, the concept of harmonics and periodicity, what they are and how to use them, all have a concrete application.
This book is about math and science and their application to the price action on a chart.
I believe this work is unique, and that it presents many original ideas which are not in any other market book available to the public today. The application of the techniques are simple, so simple you will wonder why you didn’t think of some of them yourself. A lot of complexity has to be gone through before getting to the point of simplicity as the end result.
Thank you for your interest in my work and I hope you will find it helpful in your trading and that it may help you to clear some roadblocks and dead ends as well.
This course offers a solution to the Law of Vibration, as Gann originally presented it in his interview with Richard Wyckoff in The Ticker and Investment Digest, upon his first public appearance in 1909.
The author takes Gann's own words and tracks through the science of his day to uncover the meaning of Gann's explanation that "stocks are like atoms" and that they respond to "mathematical points of force.
This is the first public presentation of a clear theory of Gann’s use of the Periodic Table as the basis of the Law of Vibration applied to trading.
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.
