There are two quite different sides to Gann analysis, the deeply theoretical, seeking to understand the essence of the science behind Gannís market theory, the Law of Vibration, and the outright practical, looking for working tools and techniques that will help with applied trading. Though our greatest interest is in the cosmological theory behind Gannís work, and the universe in general, we also specialize on the practical tools that traders need to specifically analyze and trade the markets. Some Gann experts excel at theory, while others are simply practical traders who are less focused on ideas in deference to trading techniques. This category will specifically focus upon the books and courses that provide very specific and applied tools from Gannís toolbox used for real time trading. Some may explore deeper theoretical principles and some may just focus on pure trading tools, but this category will give working techniques to better fill the arsenal of any trader. We often recommend that new Gann students focus first on developing a practical trading ability, so that they can fund their future research with profits from their trades, and then also apply new insights from their theoretical study to their practical trading as they advance. This section will help to identify those most practical tools.
While W.D. Gannís own original work is a critical element for any Gann researcherís collection, most people will find Gannís work to be extremely vague, complicated and difficult to penetrate on their own. In our experience, it can take many years, if not decades for the ordinary analyst to, by themselves, digest and apply the deeper techniques of Gannís, without significant help by well-seasoned analysts and traders who have dedicated years to decoding and creating practical tools from Gannís techniques. This is why there is a fundamental and valuable secondary market of works presenting and developing Gannís ideas, and making them accessible to any trader. We believe that the best teachers in this field are not competitors, but are fellow contributors to an ongoing field of research, and that their work is mutually supportive and will provide expanded insights when more material is understood.
We maintain the largest collection of secondary works on Gann Theory of anyone in the field. Many of these books we publish ourselves, and are written by top Gann experts and experienced Gann traders from across the world. However, we also review works written by other Gann experts across the field, and add to our catalog any material we consider to be of high quality and importance from the global community of Gann analysts. With our experience in the field, we are well qualified and to provide a peer review of these materials, so as to filter out the best quality work from that of a lower caliber, and then present these to our clientele who demand the highest standards. So any book or course that you find in this catalog can generally be considered to be of the upper echelon of works on Gann analysis. We have new authors submit their research to us ongoingly, so that we are always adding new items to our catalog with fresh insights, alternative techniques or new ideas. In this way we are able to save our clients significant wasted funds in exploring the territory at their own cost.
W.D. Gann Works
We stock the complete collection of the works of W.D. Gann.
His private courses represent the most important of all of his writings, and go into much greater detail than the public book series. Our 6 Volume set of Gann’s Collected Writings comes with supplementary rare source materials. The most reliable set of Gann’s unadulterated and most important work available.
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.
Frequently Asked Questions:
Question: How do I get started using this website?
How do I sort through all this material on your site?
We have created special sections to help guide people through this website:
Is more specifically focused on introducing and organizing the educational content available here. This section begins by identifying the goals and intentions of various types of traders, students or researchers and will help point them to the specific material, books and courses which will be most appropriate for their goals.
We also suggest that you browse our Category Lists, which are quite detailed and precise so as will help you to identify very specific subjects and focuses of study. We have divided them into 3 main subject categories:
Finally, if there are specific subjects that you are seeking or researching, we suggest that you use our book database to search by author, title, or any kind of keyword. Through that process you can explore our vast catalog and find many titles that cover your subject of interest.
Question: What is your international shipping policy?
Do you ship internationally?
Yes, we ship to anyplace in the world that is allowed by law, including to prisons and military bases. We use the United States Postal Service for most of our international shipping which generally goes Priority Mail, but we can also use Federal Express when preferred or required, though the costs are about double the USPS. We only charge our cost for shipping.
Question: Do you offer physical classes or seminars?
Do you offer any kind of physical classes or seminars currently?
We do not offer any physical classes or seminars. We have found over the years that our clientele is scattered across the world so that the expense of people traveling to one location for a class is cost prohibitive and can be done much better as we do it now through a text and an Online Classroom through our Forums.
Also, it is very difficult to communicate a deep level of information in only a few days. Generally, much more time is required to understand the principles in our courses, so the format of a detailed written text combined with an ongoing Online Forum where students can ask questions of the author and engage in discussion and research with the rest of the students provides a much more effective and informative learning environment.
Question: Why are some Market Courses expensive?
Why are your financial market courses so expensive?
People often see our books and courses in the wrong context, like books you might purchase in a bookstore, which they are not. Our books and courses are much more like courses at a University or Graduate school. Most modern private colleges charge over $5000 for each 1 term college course, which generally includes a core textbook and then a once a week class over a period of several months. People do not generally question the cost of such courses when they are at a college, even though the knowledge and information taught in the course can generally be found in any library for free, or online from many major universities for free or a small fee.
Our courses are equally as intense and involved as any advanced college course. The biggest difference between our courses and college courses, is that none of the subjects we teach are taught in any university anywhere in the world!
You cannot find a single course on trading, Technical Analysis, Cycle Theory, Risk Management, Gann Theory, or Cosmological Economics at any university in the world. Even the best graduate MBA programs teach almost nothing about trading or technical analysis and absolutely nothing about Gann and Market Forecasting.
Our courses are every bit as substantial and serious as any advanced college course, if not more so, and are really more like post-graduate seminars, or technical trade schools. The actual text is only a part of the larger study. Most of our courses include membership in an Online Forum where the student an engage in Q&A with the author, just like in a normal classroom, as well as engage in study and research with other students in the group, creating a fascinating classroom environment which does not last only a few months, but which continues for many years, compiling the ongoing discussion and work for all students to come.
So our answer to this question is that our courses should be thought of in the same way as an advanced graduate program or professional trade school, teaching real skills that will provide the student with practical tools and skills which can be used in real life.
Question: Why are your in-house printed books so expensive?
Why are your in-house printed books more expensive than normal books?
Our in-house books are produced on a print on demand basis. We have a catalog of over 500 rare books which we have been making available to our clients from the mid-90’s, and which Dr. Baumring was providing for his students in the 1980’s, all long before the Internet and the current movement to digitize libraries. Such being the case, over 20 years ago we developed our process which would allow us not to have to print multiple copies of and stock a catalog of over 500 titles, but instead be able to offer these rare works to all people at any time. Unfortunately, our costs for such in house printing is more expensive than outside printing, approximately 5-10 cents per page and $9 for our suede hardcover bindings. This makes our smallest books cost approximately $30 and our larger ones of 500 – 1000 pages somewhere from $60 - $100.
We actually are planning to discontinue our in-house printing in the near future as soon as we have made all of our titles available as PDF downloads for much lower prices without shipping costs around the world. We are selecting some of our best titles that are not otherwise easily available and converting them to new outsourced print on demand companies so that we can continue to provide a catalog of quality print books so that they will always remain available and at lower prices.
Dr. Goulden takes a different approach to market analysis than most normal traders and educators. As a Cambridge educated scholar, Goulden is interested in deep principles and in exploring the foundations and implications of both trading techniques and the systems behind them. Before he was ever interested in the markets, he was asked by a friend why Gannís tools and system are considered to be based upon metaphysical principles. He found this question intriguing and engaged in deep research in the field to answer this question. In this process he recreated a new set of tools based upon principles of Ancient Geometry and Celestial Mechanics. His tools are taken from the same sources as Gannís and are quite powerful, but are slightly different from Gannís, so that traders often use them as non-correlated cross-confirmation tools giving similar technical indications but from different perspectives.
His work is deep and has many layers of application and exploration that can be derived from it. His latest work on financial astrology, The Secrets of the Chronocrators, looks back to the astrological and astronomical systems of the ancients, reviving the more mathematical and technical astrology of the Great Masters of the medieval and prior times. Exploring principles like Spherical Astronomy and subtle movements of the Solar System, it seeks to develop a more advanced and scientific system of astrology determination as distinguished from the simpler forms that are generally known. It represents a new movement to re-explore the deeper scientific systems of the ancients that were lost in the press towards the development of a purely mechanical science.
Goulden is a superb educator and the most active Forum moderator that we have seen, with each of his Forums for his courses having 1000ís of posts with detailed questions and answers, deviling deeply into further and new fields of research beyond what is presented in his courses. His Online Forums serve as an advanced classroom where the details of his theories are discussed and elaborated and where students share their research and work with each other while overseen by Goulden, who continually presents new ideas and suggestions.
Dan Ferrera is one of the most respected market analysts and educators in the Gann field. For 20 years his works have been some of the most popular in our catalog. Aside from being one of the clearest interpreters of Gann, he also has produced his own advanced work, The Spirals of Growth & Decay, developed prior to his analysis and presentation of Gannís theories. For those seeking a solid, Masterís Degree level education in technical Gann analysis, we cannot recommend anything more highly than Ferreraís works.
Ferrera has written detailed course on every angle of Gannís work and provides a fast track into a deep understanding of each field of Gannís work as well as advanced topics in technical analysis. He has works on cycles analysis, Gannís Square of 9, Gannís Mass Pressure Charts, one on risk management and Gannís swing trading system, another on the details of Gannís complex geometrical and mathematical tools, one on astrological Bible interpretation, on teaching how to create yearly forecasts like his own yearly Outlooks, which give a prediction for each year, and more. If you are wanting to get a first taste of Gann and to save yourself years of hard work putting together his ideas, Ferrera is a perfect place to start, and walking through his series of fantastic is like getting a Masterís degree in Gann and technical analysis.
Dr. Jerome Baumring
The work of Dr. Baumring is the core inspiration upon which this entire website is based. Baumring is the only known modern person to have cracked the code behind WD Gannís system of trading and market order. However, even further, Baumring rediscovered and elaborated the system of scientific cosmology at the root of Gannís Law of Vibration. There is absolutely no other Gann teaching that goes anywhere near as deep as Baumringís work, or that even so much as attempts to approach the core ideas developed by Baumring. This study is for those who are interested in the mysteries behind the markets and the ordering system behind the universe itself. This is the study of cosmological theory on its deepest level, and of the interaction between man and the cosmos in which he lives, explored through an examination of causation and propagation of forces in the financial markets.
Dr. Baumringís course program is not easy, and should not be approached without the willingness to commit at least a few years to the study. It is a long and detailed course, requiring the equivalent level of research and difficulty as most PhD programs, but in the field of Gann Analysis, which is not taught at any university. It requires many years of challenging work including the reading of many dozens (if not 100ís) of books required to develop the foundations needed to understand Gannís approach to the markets. It is a very serious study that should only be approached by those willing to dedicate themselves to intense thinking and vast research across many fields of knowledge including: astronomy, biology, physics, finance, cycles, wave mechanics, geometry, mathematics, astrology, numerology, number theory, numerous esoteric and alternative scientific theories, and much, much more. Baumring summarized his system by the term ďNumerical AstrophysicsĒ in an attempt to give a modern name to an ancient theory that Gann himself had discovered.
Of all the analysts and traders we have known, the most advanced have all come to their understanding through following the lead of Dr. Baumring, or through having gone through a similar and parallel study and path of research to his. His teachings represent the ďbest of the bestĒ of all material on Gann publicly available, but it will not give up its secrets to a mere superficial perusal. Baumring does not spell out simple explanations of how Gannís techniques work, but rather leads his students into the depth of the science behind the system, while slowly elaborating how the techniques build upon this deeper science. For those seeking a fast path to the application of Gann exoteric trading principles, this is NOT it! Baumringís work is not merely some market trading program, and indeed if approached this way may be found to be dissatisfactory.
Baumring himself often said to his students, ďIf you only are looking to make money, donít bother studying Gann, itís too difficult. Simply study swing trading systems, risk management and options strategies, and you can make all the money you want to make.Ē (Note: we have excellent books on these alternativesÖ) There are much easier and more direct methods to learn to effectively trade the markets than studying Gann. Those in more of a hurry to apply Gannís work to trading may want to begin with the work of Ferrera or one of our most applied analysts, like Prandelli or Gordon Roberts, and save the Baumring work for a later time to explore at your leisure.
