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.
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.

Dr. Jerome Baumring
The work of Dr. Baumring is the core inspiration upon which this website is based. He is the only known modern person to have fully cracked the code of WD Gann’s complete system of trading. Baumring rediscovered and elaborated the system of scientific cosmology behind Gann’s Law of Vibration. A long and detailed course, equivalent to a PhD in Gann Analysis.
Gann Science: The Periodic Table & The Law of Vibration The Solution to Gann’s Law of Vibration as Presented in The Ticker Interview
By Eric Penicka
"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
Gann Science: The Periodic Table & The Law of Vibration by Eric Penicka ( $4,500.00 )
Intent of This Course
The intent of this course is to provide 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 exact words and correlates them with the cutting edge science of Gann’s day to demonstrate what Gann meant when he said, “stocks are like atoms”. He develops a system which identifies the key “mathematical points of force” that govern the structure through which the market moves.
The author builds a solid foundation in the Natural Sciences of Gann’s day, showing how the emerging science of the Periodic Table of atomic elements provides a system of order based upon the vibrational values of the elements themselves. When the elemental structure is determined for an individual market, a master number set will be defined for that market which determines its movement in price and time forever into the future.
For many who are fascinated with Gann, their first introduction to the subject, or at least the most influential reference that ignited their research into Gann, was his first foray into the public forum, the 1909 interview with Richard Wyckoff in The Ticker and Investment Digest. If you have not read the Ticker Interview, it would be a good idea to do so before continuing, or if it’s been a while, a refresher will help to make the material covered by this course clearer.
For some it is Gann’s staggering 92% trading record of 262 of 284 profitable trades producing a 1000% return in 25 days, while under the watchful eye of an auditor that motivates their interest. For others, it’s the fascinating explanations given as to the source of Gann’s knowledge and forecasting system, which he called the Law of Vibration, that sparked their interest, leading seekers on a century long quest to solve this man’s mysterious theories.
This term, the Law of Vibration, has captured the imagination of generations of Gann researchers and analysts who have sought in every direction for the solution to Gann’s Ticker methodology and the science behind it. To my knowledge, the solution has yet to be thoroughly explained, at least publicly, until now.
Eric Penicka, in this new work, GANN SCIENCE: The Periodic Table & The Law of Vibration has presented an excellent solution to the puzzle introduced by Gann to the world in that famous Ticker interview. In his research, Penicka followed Gann’s exact guidance, taking no leads or direction outside of Gann own words in The Ticker. By following this trail, he was led to the solution presented in this volume, which is unique and has not been published in any prior work.
As Gann states in The Ticker, his system is very much based upon the principles of chemistry and the atomic theory of the elements. Penicka began his search there exploring in depth the science of Gann’s time, intent upon unravelling the meaning of Gann’s statements about the science behind his system.
Penicka’s research even led him to find a little known book from Gann’s day, where he discovered the exact quotes that Gann used in the Ticker interview, such as, “an original impulse of any kind finally resolves itself into periodic or rhythmical motion” and “just as the pendulum returns again in its swing, just as the moon returns in its orbit, just as the advancing year ever brings the roses of spring, so do the properties of the elements periodically recur as the weight of the atoms rises.”
The discovery of this source work for Gann’s quotations further confirmed for Penicka that he had uncovered the correct origins of Gann’s research. Gann even used the same dedication from this obscure book as the dedication for his in his encrypted novel, The Tunnel Thru The Air, a further piece of evidence that this work provides the skeleton key to Gann’s system of The Law of Vibration.
There is probably no better way to explain what GANN SCIENCE teaches than through the worlds of the master, Gann himself, which Penicka used as his guide in uncovering this research. Quoting from the Ticker Interview, we have selected those statements that best represent the information taught in this work. Gann states:
After exhaustive researches and investigations of the known sciences, I discovered that the Law of Vibration enabled me to accurately determine the exact points to which stocks or commodities should rise and fall within a given time.
In going over the history of markets and the great mass of related statistics, it soon becomes apparent that certain laws govern the changes and variations in the value of stocks and there exists a periodic or cyclic law, which is at the back of all these movements… By knowing the exact vibration of each individual stock, I am able to determine at what point each will receive support and at what point the greatest resistance is to be met.
I have found that in the stock itself exists its harmonic or inharmonic relationship to the driving power or force behind it. The secret of all its activity is therefore apparent. By my method I can determine the vibration of each stock and by also taking certain time values into consideration I can in the majority of cases tell exactly what the stock will do under given conditions.
The power to determine the trend of the market is due to my knowledge of the characteristics of each individual stock and a certain grouping of different stocks under their proper rates of vibration. Stocks are like electrons, atoms, and molecules, which hold persistently to their own individuality in response to the fundamental Law of Vibration. Science teaches 'that an original impulse of any kind finally resolves itself into periodic or rhythmical motion,' also 'just as the pendulum returns again in its swing, just as the moon returns in its orbit, just as the advancing year ever brings the roses of spring, so do the properties of the elements periodically recur as the weight of the atoms rises.
From my extensive investigations, studies and applied tests, I find that not only do the various stocks vibrate, but that the driving forces controlling the stocks are also in a state of vibration. These vibratory forces can only be known by the movements they generate on the stocks and their values in the market. Since all great swings or movements of the market are cyclic they act in accordance with periodic law.
Science had laid down the principle that 'the properties of an element are a periodic function of its atomic weight.' A famous scientist has stated that 'we are brought to the conviction that diversity in phenomenal nature in its different kingdoms, is most intimately associated with numerical relationship. The numbers are not intermixed chaotically and accidentally but are subject to regular periodicity. The changes and developments are also seen to be in many cases undulatory.'
Thus, I affirm, every class of phenomena, whether in nature or in the stock market, must be subject to the Universal Law of Causation and Harmony. Every effect must have an adequate cause.
If we wish to avert failure in speculation we must deal with causes. Everything in existence is based on exact proportion and perfect relationship. There is no chance in nature, because mathematical principles of the highest order lie at the foundation of all things. Faraday said: 'There is nothing in the Universe but mathematical points of force.'
Vibration is fundamental; nothing is exempt from this law; it is universal, therefore applicable to every class of phenomena on the globe.
Through the Law of Vibration, every stock in the market moves in its own distinctive sphere of activities, as to intensity, volume and direction; all the essential qualities of its evolution are characterized in its own rate of vibration. Stocks, like atoms, are really centers of energies, therefore they are controlled, mathematically. Stocks create their own field of action and power; power to attract and repel, which principle explains why certain stocks at times lead the market and 'turn dead' at other times. Thus, to speculate scientifically it is absolutely necessary to follow natural law.
It is the subjects discussed by Gann above that GANN SCIENCE will explain and bring to life. The study weaves through a number of branches of late 19th century science and establishes a seamless integration between them, defining a system or Canon of order that exists upon the smallest and most formative levels of material reality. Penicka lays out the principles and mechanics of each of these sciences to the degree required for market application, providing sufficient references for readers to explore the subjects more deeply on their own.
While the study is based upon solid scientific foundations, the discovery leads us to some alternative, yet familiar figures, like Gurdjieff, Ouspensky and Walter Russell, all who, while not recognized by the academic establishment, had great influence on the esoteric, scientific and psychological circles of the last century. All were known to Gann, either personally or through their work, as we know from legend or from his Recommended Reading List.
After laying the theoretical foundations, Penicka then focuses upon application and market analysis. He creates a sort of multi-dimensional, harmonic grid system, which is independently adjusted to each individual market according to its Keynote, or rate of vibration, which is defined by its orientation within the Periodic Table of Elements. This is what Gann meant when he said:
“By knowing the exact vibration of each individual stock, I am able to determine at what point each will receive support and at what point the greatest resistance is to be met.”
Once this chemical orientation is defined, a master number set is determined which establishes the primary numerical relationships in price and time for that market moving forward. These definitions identify what Gann meant when he referred to Faraday’s “mathematical points of force”, which the market moves between according to the same laws that govern physics and atomic science. Or in Gann’s terms:
“Every stock in the market moves in its own distinctive sphere of activities, as to intensity, volume and direction; all the essential qualities of its evolution are characterized in its own rate of vibration. Stocks, like atoms, are really centers of energies, therefore they are controlled, mathematically.”
These “mathematical points of force” define the primary support and resistance of the market, but also determine where in a sequential or “periodic” structure the market is in its grow, providing further insight into the probable outcomes of the current market setup. Or, as Gann states, “The numbers are not intermixed chaotically and accidentally but are subject to regular periodicity. The changes and developments are also seen to be in many cases undulatory.” The underlying vibratory structure and numerical template that controls the market will become clear and trading the moves according to one’s own strategic approach will take on an clarity which did not exist before.
Once the market has been chemically defined according to its periodic element, it is further deconstructed using a secondary set of tools based upon harmonic vibratory phenomena, which Gann refers to when he says, “in the stock itself exists its harmonic or inharmonic relationship to the driving power or force behind it.” So, there are two things Gann is looking at here, first a “driving power or force behind the market” and then “a harmonic or inharmonic relationship to it.” Both elements and how to calculate them will be clearly explained in Gann Science.
The first two thirds of the book lays the scientific foundations behind the Law of Vibration, and develops the theory and practice of applying the science of the elements and Periodic Table to the markets. The final third presents numerous further mathematical techniques of projection in price and time that can be integrated with the atomic elements or used on their own for secondary confirmation or trading tools, creating a powerful arsenal of mathematical techniques used to project key points in price and time.
These techniques can be used on ANY time frame, from intraday to yearly. By calculating these points on a hierarchy of time scales, one can produce a series of projections in time and price that will map the structure of the market from the short term out to the long. These “points of force” projected from different time levels will form further clusters of coherence where more significant turns and trends will be triggered or generated.
Trading these mathematically specific “points of force” allows for tight risk management when executing trades, generating excellent risk:reward ratio opportunities. They provide primary entry and exit targets that are defined much like the orbital shells of an atom, where an electron is bound by a limited energy field until it quantum leaps into a new level of energy and vibrational frequency.
Markets work exactly like these atoms and elements, as Gann himself said, and when you understand how to define, read and trade them, doing what Gann himself did in the early 1900’s becomes a real possibility.
Further Information & Resources
For further information and details about the material in this course, the author, and the contents, we have provided several further pages of resources that interested parties can reference. First, we have a detailed Table of Contents (10 pages) that gives a much better sense of the type of the content in the book. Have a look through this and see how many of these ideas you are familiar with.
Then have a read of the Author’s Introduction to himself, his work and the course in general. This will give a better sense of who he is, his writing style and general approach to Gann and the market. He explains some of the techniques and gives his perspective on the work.
Also see the Sample Content & Charts where there is a breakdown of the techniques presented in the book by chapter, along with a handful of sample charts, an example of a trade in Tesla projected by the Periodic Table method, and another section on Tesla using a non-periodic table technique from the second part of the book.
There are two Trader’s World Articles published in in Summer and Fall of 2018 which are provide some further information, and lastly we have provided a Customer Feedback section which includes a review of Gann Science by Gordon Roberts, author of Market Vibrations, along some first feedback from our clients with the course, which we will continue to update over time.
The author has agreed to monitor an Online Research Forum for this course. The Forum will be the equivalent of a classroom where the author will help readers to clarify and master the analytical techniques presented in the course. We want to assure that no detail is left out, and that the material is fully comprehensible by everybody. It will also be a place where readers can discuss their analysis of the markets and work to determine the Keynote and Elemental Harmonics of different markets.
The author intentionally provided only one to a few examples for each principle in the course, with the understanding that he would provide many more examples in the Online Forum, where he would address in detail student’s questions. The author has also suggested that with the help of the group he would be willing to create an archive of various markets that the group will work out the mathematics and chemistry for, leaving a schematic for trading each according to its rate of vibration and master number set. This will become a valuable resource for course owners, allowing them to trade more markets without having to do all the research themselves from scratch.
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.
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.
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.
