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.

A Trade Setup in Tesla Using The Periodic Table Methodology
A recent swing trade setup example using the periodic table method.
Tesla (TSLA) is a popular and volatile stock that offers good trading opportunities. At the time this trade was setting up there was a lot of negative news coming out that Tesla was about to go bankrupt. This news sent the stock plummeting.
This is further proof that news doesn’t drive the market. Natural law drives the market and the news is just a byproduct that may have a temporary influence but is not a causal factor.
A trade on this stock was indicated as TSLA was trading down and a potential low was possibly coming due on April 2nd, 2018. There were multiple time points and 3 price indications coming into play on that day. The price points were derived from the primary method which projected the low not to exceed 245. Two octave structures indicated a price level convergence at 244. This gives 3 price points converging at 244, 244 and 245.
There are also two price measurements that are called “Keely Harmonics” that converge at this low which are illustrated in the Gann Science book and are powerful enough to be used as stand-alone reversal projection points. The time structures used will not be presented here.
Gann would have said in The Ticker Interview in 1909 that Tesla will not penetrate below 244 without a significant reaction in the upward direction. This is exactly how the calls he made on stocks like US Steel, Auburn Motors, and Union Pacific were made.
The stock traded down to 244.59 on the morning of April 2nd. A trade could be taken at that level with minimal risk.
On this day the US stock indices were trading down and made morning lows. TSLA hit 244.59, a low which was coincident with the indices and started trading up. The indices traded up as well but then they rolled over and continued down. Tesla held its ground strongly and did not go lower. The stock proceeded to run up hard for six consecutive trading days in the face of all the bad news. The swing high area after the trade was put on was also known in advance as a short-term target at 308. The actual high was 309.50.
Lost motion is a bit more nowadays than at the time of Gann due to larger group of market participants, program trading, and the additional trading activity not in the market in the early days.
This trade had a potential of a $65 profit most of which could have been garnered by users of this method in six days.
These calculations are made without the use of the Square of Nine nor any of the other number wheels. This is not to say they don’t have a purpose. But only that they are not a necessary part of the Law of Vibration. The chart below made with Wave 59 software identifies the entry and exit points for this trade.
Examples of Non-Periodic Table Techniques Included in Book
Though the primary methodology presented in Gann Science is the technique of using the Periodic Table along with musical harmonics to trade, other science and math concepts are explored in Gann Science that traders can use to find further tradeable mathematical points of force in the market. These and other techniques presented in the book are still pretty powerful tools and can stand on their own legs as viable trading tools, even though considered secondary to the primary Law of Vibration technique taught in the book.
One of these ideas is the use of mathematical constants in trading. These constants have great predictive value in their own right. Numerous scientific formulae and mathematical constants will work in the analysis of stocks and commodities. By using them as multipliers, or factors, traders can determine additional pressure points in the market.
These pressure points are what were referred to as “mathematical points of force” in the Faraday quote Gann often refers to. These numbers can be used to multiply measurements in price or time, including highs, lows, ranges, or vectors.
There is a chapter in Gann Science dedicated to proving out these numbers with examples of varied market applications. Numerous constants are used in those examples.
In this article, we will test only one mathematical constant, pi, to see how it may help with our trading. Pi is significant because of its connection to the circle and the octave. In the examples following, we will be using pi as a multiplier (factor) to price and time measurements.
In essence, the measurement of price or time would be the diameter of a circle, and when multiplied by pi, the resultant number is the circumference of that circle. This is basically, circling the square, where the swing vector (diameter), would be the diagonal of the square.
This can also work in reverse, where the measurement may be divided by pi and used to take a circumference to find a diameter.
A series of tests will be made on the following charts of the stock of Tesla, (TSLA), the electric car company. This is a good trading stock because of its volatility and presents good options trading possibilities for short to intermediate term swing traders.
Pi as a Time Factor
The first test will be to measure some swing points, getting a bar count between highs and lows, and then measuring that count by pi and projecting it forward.
t is August 21, 2018 as this article is being written and there is a trade triggered yesterday by two pi time count projections coming together which is causing an up move in TSLA stock. There is both an expansion and a contraction projection.
The low came in after the open on Monday 8-20-18. The projection of 23 days between two highs projected 72-bars to the low. The contracting (division) projection took a 49-bar count between two lows to project a 15-bar count to the low. This can be seen at the far right of the chart.
The measuring counts are marked with the gray bar counter, and the projections are done with a black bar counter. All measurements are multiplied by pi, other than the one mentioned prior.
A dozen projections are made on this example chart. Ten of them caused reversals in the market’s price action. Although the projections made were high to high and low to low, there is no rule that says this is the only way this can be used.
There is a key point to mention having to do with the area where the red square is placed on the chart. The area marked is where the 82 and 188 counts come together. There was no reversal at this point which is what is normally expected. When this happens, generally, the continuation move will double the range of the swing in progress to that point.
In other words, the measurement indicates the approximate midpoint of a swing. This is a good place to move into a stop and reverse mode, had a short been put into place. Reverse it into a long, and let it run to the expected target area.
In this example trading bars are used. Calendar days can be used as well and in general are preferable. Trading bars were used to show they work as well.
Pi as a Price Factor
On the next chart, some price range projections will be added in to see how pi may affect price.
Four price projections will be made. 3 of them from small price ranges, and one from just the range of the high bar itself. This one is marked in text at the September 2017 high.
Each range is multiplied by pi, and then projected from the beginning and end of the swing range, or bar range. Notice how these levels act as important support and resistance points and also many gaps take place at these areas.
The last projection off the June high minor range gave the area of the last two swing lows, confirming the two timing signals mentioned in the prior chart, triggering the 8-20-18 long trade.
It should be stated that these points were chosen randomly and are not to be construed as the only valid points to be used. Any other swing ranges not shown in the examples are also applicable and will give different points of force.
It should also be noted that there are multiple points on a chart that when found will tie the various numbers together and act as the best support and resistance areas in price and in time due to their harmonic connection.
Pi as a Slope to Set Gann Fans
The following chart brings into the analysis the popular “Gann fan” concept. Most traders are trying to calculate a 45 degree angle but that is not the true method of finding a correct slope.
A 1:1 relationship is also not a necessary way to begin. Squaring of time and price can be done in a lot of different ways.
One method is to use pi as the slope. On the following chart, two fans are plotted using a slope of .314. Floating the decimal is necessary to fit the fan to the price level of the chart in question.
No prices or high or low are used. Only the slope is input of .314. These can be anchored at any pivot and will give results.
The fans are shown on a separate chart for clarity. The confluent points between the price and time counts along with the fans gives many good trade opportunities. Notice the 8-20-18 low is confirmed by the fan line. Fan lines not involved in the price action were removed.
This is one good use, but maybe not the best construct for these fans. A full chapter dedicated to the proper set up and use of Gann fans is included in the Gann Science book, in the Chapter on Pitch: The Fourth Dimension.
This particular analysis of Tesla has been done using nothing but pi as a multiplier or factor.
This simple mechanism using pi could be developed into a trading system by itself. The nice thing about it is that it only uses simple arithmetic and can be done with a calculator in a few minutes.
Using Pi as a Setting on Technical Indicators
Traders who use indicators can use derivatives of pi to set up their indicators with.
On the following chart, two AMA, adaptive moving averages set at 31 and 314 have been plotted. Two oscillators, a CCI, and a cyclic RSI have been set at 31 length.
Lastly, another fan set from the first top of the double top not used as a fan anchor on the prior chart does a nice job of displaying the vibrational tendencies of the price action. Looking at both of the down fans from the two charts, different angles from the two fans caught some of the same pivot points. The slope is again .314.
The trend lines on the cyclic RSI are indicating divergence points.
For readers interested in furthering these concepts, try using the prices of highs and lows and multiplying and dividing by pi and its increments to find important support and resistance levels.
The Pi number can be used as a measuring stick by itself. Checking back off the 8-20 low, 315 trading and calendar days hit swing lows. The inclined reader may wish to test planetary longitude. Using Mercury and measuring back 315* geocentric degrees ties back to a high 11-17-17. These points are shown on the indicator chart. These are good confirmations of the pi projection measurements from the first chart.
These techniques can be used in any time frame. The best trades on a daily bar are set up by numbers coming together on a weekly chart. The entry on the daily bar can be fine-tuned by some calculations made on an intraday chart. The best use of this material is to know the position of the market in these various time frames which will lead to very precise trading setups.
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.
