Applied Gann Theory
 Applied Gann Theory
 Applied Gann Theory
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.

Daniel Ferrera
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.

History’s most intriguing financial analyst, forecaster and trader, W. D. Gann produced a 10,000% return with a 93% success rate in an audited 1909 interview. Gann said his market theory was based upon the Law of Vibration, leading scholars and analysts on a 100 year intellectual quest deep into  theoretical physics, alternative science and esoteric philosophy, seeking to understand a cosmological ordering system linking the financial markets to the influences of natural science.
Our most popular author, Dan Ferrera is a master of making complicated ideas easy to apply. His 9 courses present KEY elements of Gann Theory & Technical Analysis including Time Cycles, the Square of 9, Periodicity, Price Structure, Swing Trading and Risk Management, providing advanced tools for the average trader. His popular Yearly Outlook provides a fascinating and accurate analysis of market action.

Dr. Lorrie Bennett is one of the only Gann experts to have cracked the Law of Vibration! After 20 years of grueling research she discovered a complex code in Gann's texts which led her to the full solution. Following in Baumring's footsteps, Dr. Bennett lays out the science behind the Law of Vibration in an intensive 4 Volume Advanced Series revealing the Patterns, Numbers, Planets & Geometry behind Gann's secret trading system.

Dr. Baumring is the only known person to have fully cracked W. D. Gann’s full Cosmological System! He reproduced Gann’s results, forecasting markets within 3 minutes of turning points. He extended Gann’s Law of Vibration into DNA Coding, Chaos Theory, & Topology, creating multi-dimensional, mathematical models of the markets, proving them to be a fully Deterministic System. The deepest Gann research sourcework ever compiled.

A Cambridge scholar who, intrigued by the challenge of Gann’s esoteric work created a powerful set of technical tools based upon principles of Ancient Geometry, Celestial Mechanics, and Pythagorean Harmonics, which project Price, Time & Trend with exact precision. His 2nd course applies the Secrets of Ancient Astrology to forecast market turns & trends more accurately than the best works on Financial Astrology preceding it.
Cutting edge Space & Solar Researchers, Muriel & Louis Hasbrouck’s Space/Time Forecasting techniques are STILL more advanced than those of NASA or the current scientific community. The Hasbroucks produced 50 years of Market Forecasts with a 90% accuracy rate and were able to forecast Space Weather, Earthquakes & Geomagnetic Storms. Their advanced techniques develop a new Theory of Space Time Field Forces & Influence.

A penetrating researcher after Baumring’s lead into the core of Gann’s Cosmological System thru cracking Gann’s Squaring of Price & Time. Quantifies the mechanics of Gann’s innermost system demonstrating how markets move in multi-dimensional Space/Time. Includes new and sophisticated trading algorithms which generate 4000% annualized returns, mathematically proving the markets to be an Absolute Deterministic System.

Prandelli's work is very popular with swing traders due to the usefulness of his Gann tools which project Key Price Levels and Cyclical Turning Points. His courses present practical tools using Gann’s Planetary Longitude Lines and Master Time Cycle which combine with his KEY Risk Management & Trading Strategies to produce10-15% monthly returns consistently. His Yearly Forecast Bulletin provides his ongoing trading signals & strategy.

A detailed exploration and analysis of W. D. Gann’s Mechanical Trading System illustrating Gann's trading strategy over a period of 15 years. Gann turned $3000 into $6 million over this period, producing a 1400% return in the first 8 months alone. This study provides the foundation that Gann required for ALL of his students before learning to forecast. These techniques still work today producing 570% return in the S&P in 2014 in 3 months!

A New Discovery of a Mathematical Pattern in the Gold Market which forecasts Gold's turns with an 85-95% accuracy over 40 years backtesting. A Scientific Proof of a Cyclical Pattern in the Gold Market which provides a 100 Year Forecast of Gold’s Major Tops & Bottoms and Bull & Bear Market Campaigns out to 2100. This insight will provide you with a series of highly profitable trades for the rest of your life!

Sean Erikson, a trader and fund manager with 25 years’ experience, provides a set of powerful astro-tools for advanced swing trading based upon celestial mechanics. The key tool uses an astronomical component which consistently and beautifully predicts the angle of attack or slope of a forthcoming trend. This is combined with a simple astro-timing tool which indicates the next 1-3 turns out and a geometrical price projection tool which provides the two most probable price projections for each move.

The solution to Gann's Law of Vibration from the 1909 Ticker Interview. Penicka analyzes Gann’s exact words correlating them with the cutting edge science of Gann’s day to develop a system which identifies the “mathematical points of force” behind all market action. The Periodic Table of Elements determines a system of order based upon atomic structure which generates a master number set for each market defining its structure in price and time.

W. D. Gannís private courses represent the most important of all of Gannís 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 Gannís 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 Gannís courses were initially collected and compiled by Dr. Baumring and Donald Mack in the 1980ís 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 couldnít be further from the truth! Each of Gannís ďcoursesĒ were actually small, ďsectionsĒ 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 1940ís and that he ďcalledĒ 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 Gannís death when purchased by Ed Lambert. For instance, there are pieces that Gann advertised in the 1950ís as ďnewĒ like his Master Mathematical Formula for Market Predictions, or his rare #3 Master Time Factor Course which were never included in his ďMaster CoursesĒ, and similarly were never included with any of the Lambert Gann courses sold by Lambert or the Jonesí from the 60ís until now. So these ďmasterĒ 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 Gannís 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 Baumringís 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 ďsupposedĒ collections of Gannís writings as most are unauthorized, incomplete, and distorted representations of his work, and cannot be trusted. Our set it the most reliable set of Gannís unadulterated and most important work availableÖ

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.

Hans Kayser's Textbook of Harmonics - Excerpts §34. The Complete Partial-Tone Diagram

A Translation Society Edition

By Hans Kayser

Up until now, we have constructed our familiar partial-tone diagram by simply placing, under the overtone series

1/1 c 2/1 c¢ 3/1 g 4/1 c¢¢ 5/1 e¢¢ ...

further overtone series with initial ratios that are reciprocal to this series, i.e. following the simple aliquot series:

1/1 c 2/1 c 3/1 g 4/1 c′′ 5/1 e′′
1/2 c, . . . .
1/3 f,, . . . .
1/4 c,, . . . .
1/5 as,,, . . . .
Figure 298

If we interpolate upwards in the same way, then obviously, if we want to stay with the pattern of the overtone series developing towards the left, we get the following progression:

3/1 g 6/1 g′′ 9/1 d′′′ . .
2/1 c 4/1 c′′ 6/1 g′′ . .
1/1 c 2/1 c 3/1 g . .
1/2 c, 2/2 c 3/1 g . .
1/3 f,, 2/3 f, 3/3 c . .
Figure 299

 If we continue the procedure to the left up to index 6, the result is Fig. 300. We call this the open or complete partial-tone plane (PE), in contrast with, or rather in completion of, the previously familiar partial-tone plane, which we can conveniently designate as 1/4 PE (the quarter partial-tone plane). This is a regular continuation of the overtone series in all four directions in the flat coordinate plane. This open partial-tone diagram is especially interesting in various ways, but we will analyze it here only in terms of its main content. In regard to various important details (cadencing etc.) we will return to it later.

Figure 300
Figure 300

The axis cross (Fig. 300) contains the reciprocal partial-tone series in its vertical and horizontal arms, intersecting at the generator-tone 1/1 c. This divides the coordinate field into four sectors, a b c d. Of these sectors, a and b are the same in their content, in the position of their vectors; but their location is reversed like a mirror image. In both cases, then, we have a model of the original 1/4 partial-tone plane. The sectors c and d, however, are completely different in appearance. The ratios of the upper right sector c are quantitatively all greater than 1 (> 1) and climb very steeply upwards to the peak of the corner ratio 36/1 d¢¢¢¢¢; the ratios of the lower left sector d are quantitatively all smaller than 1 (< 1) and descend to the corner ratio 1/36 ,,,,,,—therefore, between these outermost poles of this small index of 6, there are eleven octaves of tonal space. As the numeric expression of these two corner ratios shows, these two sectors c and d are reciprocal in terms of their numbers (quotients) and tone-values; thus, the number groups of these sectors follow the same law of reciprocity as the simple linear partial-tone series. Furthermore, we see two more diagonals, drawn as dotted and dashed lines. The first (from b to a) joins together only generator-tones n/n; we call this the “generator-tone diagonal.” The entire diagram is divided into two halves by these diagonals: an upper right half with only ratios greater than 1, and a lower left half with only ratios smaller than 1. These two halves are also in exact reciprocity in terms of both number and value. The second dashed diagonal from c to d joins the ratios of greatest upwards and downwards expansion; since there are only second powers of the whole number series and its reciprocals in numeric terms here, we call it the “diagonal of 2nd powers,” or of “directional powers.” The diagram is divided by this second diagonal into two halves of identical ratios, and therefore of the same content. These halves, however, are reversed like mirror images. These two diagonals embody, geometrically, the most extreme opposites contained in the diagram: the generator-tone diagonals, the static element of the self-contained generator-tones; the diagonal of 2nd powers, the dynamic element of exceptional vitality. Later, we will further discuss the laws and norms of this complete partial-tone diagram. Seen from outside, this complete, open “P” diagram (or however one wishes to describe it) has great similarity to a 4-fold combination of our beginning diagram. But it is not a “combination model”; instead it is a simple further development of the “P” according to the laws lying immanent within it. To investigate whether, and how far, this complete P-diagram can be varied, permuted, and combined, would require far more space than this textbook allows. This is left for the reader to work out on his own initiative.   In the section on “tone-space” (§37), we will construct the complete “P” spatially; the reader who enjoys drawing will be able to exercise his skills there!

§35a. Ektypics

§35a.1. The Law of Falling Bodies

The physical law of “free fall” states that a body will fall one unit of length in one second, 22 = 4 units in the 2nd second of falling, 32 = 9 units in the 3rd second, and so on. If one writes the numbers of the units and those of the corresponding times below them:

Units: 1 4 9 16 25 36 ...
Time: 1 2 3 4 5 6 ...

 then one sees instantly that the upper series is perspective, and the lower series equidistant. The two dimensions in which this dialectic takes place are time (seconds) and space (units of distance). It is interesting that from the point of view of this physical law, there is an even closer relationship to our partial-tone coordinates than that of perspective and equidistance. If we observe the numeric terms in the haptic illustration of the “P” not arithmetically, i.e. not from the simple viewpoint of the number progression, but geometrically, i.e. from the viewpoint of true size, then calculating with vibration-numbers and string lengths yields the following two basal series:

Figure 301
Figure 301

Here, with the purely geometric observation of the number sizes, within the conjugated overtone and undertone series, we see the perspective and equidistant elements appear together. The dialectic mentioned above, then, appears within the number sizes, whereby the observation of the tone-values shows that the perspective side reveals a minor impulse under temporal observation and a major impulse under spatial observation. For the equidistant side, it is reversed. Thus the situation is exactly the same as for the law of gravity: space and time are in a constant perspective-equidistant relationship. Only in the acoustic domain, this relationship is mutual (reciprocal) and can reverse itself depending on whether we calculate with vibration-numbers or string lengths. In the physical domain, on the other hand, it is one-sided, since the measure of time always remains equidistant and the measure of space always remains perspective.

One can now derive this law of falling bodies directly from our completed partial-tone diagram (Fig. 300, sector c), as shown in Fig. 302.

Figure 300
Figure 300

As one can see, the temporal element of the seconds of falling is equal to the equidistance of the vibration-numbers 1/1 2/1 3/1 ... while the spatial element of the intervals of falling is congruent with the perspective of the vibration-numbers of the diagonal of 2nd powers.

However, regarding this example of free fall, we are interested in something fundamental that gives rise to a deeper observation.

It is known and acknowledged that this Galilean law of falling bodies is a preliminary step on the way to Newton’s law of gravity. In it lies the first quantitative-dynamic law, which precisely defines a process of movement, in contrast to or in completion of the first (alleged) quantitative-static law of the precise Pythagorean tracing of a perception (tone ratio) to a quantitative numeric relationship. According to common opinion, Galileo found his law of falling bodies through of experimental observations, and it is given in almost all textbooks as the paradigm of the so-called inductive method of modern science. In contrast to this, Hugo Dingler (Der Zusammenbruch der Wissenschaft und der Primat der Philosophie, 2nd ed., 1931, p. 125 ff.) tells us persuasively that without previous prototypical ideas, i.e. without the image-concepts already existing a priori in his psyche, Galileo would not have been able to discover his law of falling bodies—the evidence for this condition comes from a letter from Galileo’s student Toricelli (op. cit., p. 196) found by H. Wieleitner. To prove this psychic a priori quality of all great discoveries is now the main task of Dingler’s work, and likewise his resulting thesis that the decadence and “breakdown” of modern science is due to the loss of the creative image-concept, to the one-sided relocation of all scientific knowledge to induction, and to the mere questioning of experiments—the inevitable evil of which is the leveling and uniformity, the vapidity and worthlessness of the modern mode of scientific thought. Dingler explains this a priori existence of creative law concepts by means of a “happy arrangement of the empirical concepts,” thus with a certain minimum intellectual measure of energy, a looking inward, “driven by its unconscious rhythm.”

We can agree with all this from our harmonic viewpoint, and can follow along with Dingler up to this point. But now the deciding question emerges: what is the “happy arrangement of the empirical concepts” and the driving of “unconscious rhythm”—how should we explain these very general and noncommittal terms?

Here, harmonics can offer further assistance. Let us consider that the idea of expansion and contraction held by Newton and Jakob Böhme (see §19b) is present in nuce in the primary reciprocal partial-tone series; further, consider the image-concepts of the most varied disciplines, the religious symbols, etc. in our partial-tone diagram, and added to this the presence of Galileo’s law of falling bodies in a sector of the open “P” diagram; and above all, let us remain aware that all the harmonic tone-developments correspond to inner forms of our psyches, since in the end they can be controlled by means of psychical criteria—then we will grasp how it is possible that laws of nature are present within us as psychic image-concepts prior to their empirical discovery. The “happy arrangement of empirical concepts” can thus be traced to a psychical tectonics whose forms we are able to elicit in the harmonic prototypes (theorems and value-forms) in a scientifically exact and unobjectionable way. But since the law of harmonic tone-development is also manifested in nature, outside of humans, in the overtone series, on which the harmonic partial-tone diagrams are built, an explanation is given vice versa for how the leap of the psychical into the natural is possible, and how one should imagine that psychical prototypes can once again be discovered in natural phenomena. Here the Kantian problem of synthetic apperception obtains a hitherto unknown solution.

But yet another point appears to me to have considerable significance in the harmonic analysis of the law of falling bodies: the element of perspective and equidistance, expressed in spatial length and in time. As initially remarked above, in quantitative-geometric observation, space and time are reciprocal to each other in two different forms: a uniform, equidistant form and a perspectively shortening form. One might well say that the “perspective” of the spatial lengths of the law of falling bodies does not shorten, but lengthens, and therefore is not “extroverted” but “introverted” (see §19a.2). But what is important here is the element of perspective in itself. Given the reciprocal correspondence of the harmonic concept of time-space upon the background of a psychical major-minor world, which is again aligned perspectively and equidistantly, the meeting of time and space in the law of falling bodies can give rise to meaningful results under the same formal auspices of perspective and equidistance that occurred with those of harmonic space-time (see §7, §16.2).

To summarize: through the Galilean law of falling bodies, whose harmonics we have shown here, and through Kepler’s laws, the third of which has prototypical harmonic ideas and analyses to thank for its existence—as the most important preliminary steps for Newton’s law of gravitation, whose inner nature of expansion and contraction agrees with fundamental harmonic concepts in any case—we see the law of gravitation, which governs almost all exact sciences, appearing on an unequivocal harmonic background. This law has thereby found a psychical anchoring; it is no longer an abstraction that does not affect us inwardly, but instead the expression of a psychical structure of the universe.

§35.2. Value-forms


In my Grundriß, pp. 101-102, the reciprocal and mirror-image relationships of the complete P diagram are summarized in the “theorem of metamorphoses,” and their further significance is discussed under the value-form of the “reference switch” (pp. 225-227). The concept of the “gesture” outlined here can also be examined from the dynamic side (Fig. 300). For this, we imagine ourselves as the moving agent, as an expression of the “will,” and thus perceive something like the following. Starting from 1/1 c, we move upwards in equal steps of the primary major perception (to 6/1 g¢¢¢), and grasp this fifth-value as autonomous, i.e. we decide to make a “reference switch” to the right. Thereupon, taking further steps which we perceive as the dominant (G-major), we reach the highest peak and thus the utmost vitality of the step 36/1 d¢¢¢¢¢. We are already well aware of this vitality through the direct relation along the diagonal of the 2nd power to 1/1 c. However, this backward glance to 1/1 c leads to an inner reversion and a further reference switch. Turning right once more, we pursue the mirror-image descent in a type of “retracting” perception of the same sequence (G-major) as far as 6/1 g¢¢. At this step, however, the “falling” tendency becomes autonomous; it now turns into a minor perception narrowing down to 6/6 c, and reinforces itself here through the reference switch to the left, crossing over once again into the major world, as far as the ratio 1/6 f,,,. But things do not stop here; our perception changes, continually narrowing (becoming overshadowed, concentrating of its own volition) in a minor world (f-minor), and composes itself finally in the deepest agglomeration of the ratio 1/36 bˇ,,,,,,. At this point, the diagonal of the 2nd power comes to our aid in a way; the reference switch upwards leads us, first up to 1/6 f,,, following the same perception backwards in equidistant steps, and from there turning around in F-major up to 6/6 c, where a further turning through a “calm” minor impulse allows us to reach the ratio 6/1 g¢¢ once again.

The reader who follows this analysis precisely, and above all sympathizes with its forms and values—whereby it is left up to him to interpret things differently—will agree with me on this: Regardless of where I begin my “journey” in this diagram, I will always have to go through a world of disturbances, which is in tune with the two most important basic forms of human and voluntary psychical capability, i.e. oscillating back and forth between these two: a perception of lightening, dispersing, extroverted gestures, directed upward, outward, toward the light, and an equally strong perception of narrowing, introverted gestures downwards, inwards, towards the darkness. Along the way, our perception constantly changes between strength and weakness, between the ambivalence of a major and minor world. The human, and every being-value—a “cue-ball between Heaven and Hell”—is symbolized, if anywhere, by this harmonic diagram, if we include “good and evil” in the layman’s sense in the principle of polarity. Later (§53.4, §53.8, §54.7), we will see that we are not allowed to do that; that with this “inclusion” of the ethical in the familiar dualism we make a huge, fatal mistake; and that harmonics, with its offering of the selection principle and the disruption factor arrives at fundamentally different solutions. Major and minor, with their characteristic equidistant and perspective forms—which can metamorphose into one another with the shifting of frequencies (time) to string lengths (space)—are polarities like light and darkness, far and near, etc. (see §23), but not like “good and evil.” This “polarity,” if indeed it should be called that, arises from completely different backgrounds, and this confusion has led the layman’s philosophical treatment of ethical problems down a cul-de-sac.


The strange connection of advancing and delaying elements in the complete P-diagram, the peculiar “static dynamic” or “dynamic stasis” of its content, demands that we subject it to a formally symbolic examination. For this, we choose the axes of coordinates contained within it, which we attempt to analyze under the term of a “symbolism of the cross.” If we let this cross stand vertically and horizontally (Fig. 303), then “above” and “below” are in the same major-minor polarity as “left” and “right”: above and right in major, below and left in minor. The upper right sector c, bounded by the upper right arm of the cross, tends towards “light” and “height” and is reciprocal to the lower left sector d, which symbolizes depth and darkness. Both are centered by the dynamic of the diagonal of the 2nd powers. The upper left sector (b) and lower right sector (a) are mirror images of one another, symbolizing the symmetry of the world, and are centered by the stasis of the generator-tone line.

We find a completely different physiognomy when we position the cross of the axes on a slant (Fig. 304). Here, the world of light is obviously contained in the upper sector and the two upper halves of the left and right sector (above the generator-tone diagonal, which is level here), the world of darkness in the lower sector and the two lower halves of the right and left sector, whereby the diagonal of the 2nd powers (perpendicular here) reaches the extreme peaks of light and darkness, height and depth, attained in index 6 of this diagram. “Right and left” here have their actual significance as mirror-image equal symmetries. The reader will have noticed that these two types of cross:

are the Christian (Occidental) and the Greek Orthodox crosses, two different symbolic emblems whose fundamentally differing inner contents we can clarify with harmonic symbolism. The first is “realistic” in a certain sense (the “bad thief” to the left, the “good” to the right); the other, the “Greek” cross, expresses, in the localization of its psychic tendencies, that which it (like the first cross) is supposed to symbolize—the “Christ”—in a simpler, more spiritual way: heavenly and earthly realms are arranged in the directions of up and down, and right and left are in reconciled equality. Through this the bad thief also motions towards reconciliation. The uppermost sector (“ascended into Heaven”) sounds out in pure, intersecting major chords, the lowermost sector (“descended into Hell”) in pure minor chords.

We will return later (§40) to the attempt at a harmonic symbolism of the cross, this time as a morphological model, on the occasion of the chordal analysis of the “P”.

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.

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 1920ís through the 1970ís, 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 20ís. 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 90ís 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.

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.
