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.
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.
W.D. Gann Works
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.
Cosmological Economics in Theory & Practice
The Space–Time Forecasts of Muriel & Louis Hasbrouck Economic & Space Weather Predictions 40+ Years Into the Future
Muriel Hasbrouck’s discovery of Space-Time Field Forces or Space-Time Dynamics represents a breakthrough in the general theory of the causation behind financial market movement and potential causation. It calculates an over-riding background energy through a type of Einsteinian field theory which is able to produce a system of solar effects based upon celestial mechanics. It is essentially a culmination of all the prior thought and research contributed to this field, synthesized through the lens of modern science, into a complete system.
Space-Time Field Forces provided a clear demonstration of the energetic dynamics of force interaction within the Solar System, and provide a scientifically verifiable mechanics of the propagation of celestial influence through the medium of the Sun. The Hasbrouck’s theory perfectly aligned with the newly accepted relativity physics of Albert Einstein.
Predictive Applications of the Hasbrouck System
The first predictive application of the Hasbrouck system was in forecasting earthquakes, volcanic activity and space weather. It was Muriel’s husband Louis’ input, after having watched his and his client’s investments disappear in the Great Crash of 1929 that inspired the further investigation of financial market influence. By the mid-50’s, the Hasbroucks had developed and tested their system for many years with the result that they were able to forecast earthquakes and space weather with an approximate 90% accuracy rate.
After a long and unsuccessful attempt to share their space weather forecasting technology with the US government in an attempt to assist the newly developing space program of the 1950’s, the Hasbroucks changed course, and instead decided to produce a financial market forecasting service tracking the DJIA, gold, and general economic and political situation of the time, called Space-Time Forecasting of Economic Trends.
The 7 Year Forecasts
Prior to beginning their forecast service, they published a 7 year forecast called THE NEXT SEVEN YEARS in the January, 1959 issue of American Mercury Magazine. The following chart shows a summary of the documented forecast records from this magazine article:
The 44 Year Forecasts
However, this was hardly the most impressive or the last of the Hasbroucks forecasts. At the same time of this documented forecast record, the Hasbroucks also produced a long term forecast chart, defining a clear sequence of market structures for the next 44 years, culminating in a massive 7 year exponential bull market with a final top in approximately 2002, followed by a significant crash.
This forecast called the top of the greatest bull market in history within an 8 month time window of accuracy and was made 44 years in advance. This forecast stands out above most every other forecast that has been done both for the accuracy of the projection in terms of time over such a long period of time, but even more so in defining the actual stages of the market as it reached that point. The following chart, originally produced in the mid-1950’s illustrates this forecast:
But what is even more interesting and impressive about this chart, is that it not only produced a forecast for the 2000 top, but it also provides a model for the tops, bottoms and general stock market structure for a period of over 150 years, beginning as far bac as 1857. This pattern is what Baumring would call a “periodicity”, or a sequence of events that occur at a regular interval. It is a far more complex formation than the simplistic “cyclical” rhythms that Edward R. Dewey was dealing with, but shows just how powerful a more advanced theory of market order can actually be.
This section would not be complete without allowing the Hasbroucks to provide a bit of explanation about their theory which explains not only the order in the financial markets but indeed even the cycles of civilizations and evolution of human thought:
The Hasbrouck Introduction & Overview of Space Time Dynamics
In today’s world of electronic thinking, the SPACE-TIME STRUCTURE OF ECONOMIC TRENDS is a part of modern life, independent of electric circuitry, bringing into action the natural computer in every human mind for the purpose of integrating the complex components of civilization into a unified, understandable whole.
Technically, it is a WAVE PATTERN IN TIME of the changes in solar-electromagnetic energy, or field force, which is known by science to evoke response and reaction from all living things and beings inhabiting the earth.
Historically, the rhythmic variations of the potential in these field forces are found to be reflected in recognizable, psychological changes in people, which coincide with the constant shifting of political and sociological environments that govern human affairs, and create history.
Economically, it is a WAVE PATTERN of changing trends in collective instinct. Its calculable indications go far toward clarifying answers to the ever-recurrent questions asked by bankers, business men, financiers, politicians, and practically everybody: Where are we? How did we get here? AND WHERE ARE WE GOING?
The Space-Time concept is neither fatalistic, cyclical, nor mechanical. It discloses an ORDER existing within the perpetual change in human affairs that is the basis of life, history, and the growth of civilizations. The Space-Time Wave potential never repeats. Every major wave, optimistic or pessimistic, is a new adventure in the advance of humanity and the world.
It is, perhaps, the nearest thing to a concept of FREEDOM than anything yet discovered. It indicates not only the reality of evolutionary change; it anticipates and evaluates each turning-point in economic history. Through knowledge of its course every individual is free to exercise his own will and judgment with certainty that he can be, at all times, moving with the trend of human affairs and not against it.
It is in this spirit that SPACE-TIME FORECASTING OF ECONOMIC TRENDS has been developed and communicated and (since October, 1964) accepted and utilized by a group of thinking people who formerly had been dissatisfied with available methods of economic forecasting.
WHAT IS FORECASTING?
Most people think of forecasting as the prediction of coming events, to be accomplished (in economics) by the projection of current action trends in some form of statistical data. But this concept deals only with records of events that have occurred in the past, and events are the result of human actions. Actions must have been preceded by thinking and planning which, in turn, had originated in desire.
By the time the statistics are recorded, the first three of the four natural stages of human creativity are apt to be largely forgotten. The statistics stand out like a skeleton, devoid of pulsing blood, warm flesh, and vibrating mentality. Statistical records, of course, are essential. But it has been noted many times that expert analysts vary widely in their conclusions when it comes to forecasting future conditions from statistical data alone.
For successful forecasting, the four stage sequence of human creativity must be taken into account. THE SPACE-TIME TREND STRUCTURE steps directly into the filling of this gap. It throws light on past conditions, when desire was rising, plans thought out, actions being taken. It presents a PREVIEW of those future environments in which the plans and actions in preparation will take shape in an economic and world climate RADICALLY DIFFERENT from either the present or the past.
“What had been discovered was – as many historians have suspected, but never proved – that there is an orderly, comprehensive TIME PATTERN OF SEQUENCE in world and economic history. Its critical turning-points in time are predictable, and they invariably coincide with fundamental change and expansion – “giant steps” in human thinking and aspiration.
This conceptual synthesis brings the Spacetime concept to the very forefront of modern thinking, not only in science, but in everyday life. It shows, too, that in this fast-moving electrical world, the former tools of any trade (including economics) need to be sharpened, for current use, against the whetstone of what recent scientific writers call “The New Hypothesis” which, they tell us, relates life and mind to concepts of science and daily experience. Earlier, Einstein defined the concept more simply by saying that everything of which we are aware is electrical in nature.”
Working from empirical knowledge that all economic change (in a free economy) is the result, not of events, nor of political actions, but of how people feel – their desires, motivations, and demands – the Space-Time Forecast evaluates and dates the next inevitable ‘shift’ in economic climate. It tells you not only when, but how this coming change will undermine the economic structure.
Each C wave is divided into 12 periods, covering about 3 years each. The C to D period represents uncertainty and fear (as in 1930-1933). D to E brings temporary recovery (as 1936). F to G is a time of reconstruction wherein psychological factors of the new trend appear (as 1940-1953). From G the pull from the peak ahead at C is clearly evident. Minor adjustments at A and B often are misread as threatening a depression (as 1957 and 1962).
Many methods try to tell you when. The indicator approach tries this. But the how has escaped most of us. “The Space-Time principle is based on a qualitative rather than a quantitative, or statistical approach.” It is an approach dealing with the underlying forces of change. It traces effects to causes. The following points warrant attention.
“All economic changes coincide with the increase, or the lessening, of public confidence.” The way people feel influences trends.
However, “no way has been found - from the statistical approach - to anticipate a change in the public mind.” There is no mechanistic formula.
The Space-Time principle does predict changes in consumer behavior based upon waves of energy change in mass psychology.
The crests and troughs of these energy waves can be timed and are found to coincide with major economic and historical turning points.
History shows every prosperity peak is followed by a trouble period. This does not mean automatic calamity. It does not mean great depression. It means a reorientation of direction as all times of troubles have led to new evolutionary waves.
The quality of each energy wave induces a different psychological climate and thereby different human responses.
The average time between peaks is 35.8 years and history shows that after each peak there follows a “time of troubles” during which a totally new attitude develops in human consciousness which will predominate throughout the period that follows.
Philosophically speaking, we conceive history as having direction. Change is real and there is a guiding order in change. Creative experimentation can discover future trends. A flash of insight may be worth all the available statistics. The creative genius in a painter or composer is the realization of future trends before they are visible. Often a man’s life and work is damned or redeemed after his death when the future confirms or casts aside his efforts.
THE SPACE-TIME STRUCTURE… it is qualitative and not quantitative. The difference is shown thusly. A prediction is a factual statement based on recorded facts of past performance, synthesized and projected according to whatever technical or analytical methods the predictor prefers. On the other hand, a forecast is a teleological picture in time and space. It is based not on past events but from future developments.
This concept is a real Contrary Opinion - the future is the determiner of the present and the present is the determiner of the past. Teleology implies a pull from in front which influences current actions. An illustration is in embryology where you can understand the earlier stages, beginning with a cell, only by reference to the future completed human being.
A. Remember the wave crest that ended in 1857 climaxed the great boom which began with the 1849 California gold rush. The trouble period ushered in a change from an agrarian to an industrial economy.
B. The wave crest in 1893 was followed by the era of the banker with big trusts and new industries.
C. The 1929 crest showed a loss of confidence which bred fear and a dependence on rules, ushering in the era of politicians.
D. The 1966 crest will, in turn, evolve into another way of thinking. The science administrator may be the man of the coming period.
This material was written in 1966 before the full flare of the ‘60’s revolution, one of the greatest changes in consciousness in human history. in politics, music, social behavior, civil rights, sexuality, space travel, computers, and so much more, demonstrating the incredible foresight of the Hasbrouck’s vision!)
The 2002 crest (remember as stated above this is a 35.8 year cycle, so when adjusted for these .2 years over 150 year period, we will be closer to the 2001 final top), gave us the 911 terrorist attacks which have radically changed the entire PSYCHOLOGY and FEELING of the whole world more fundamentally than anything since perhaps the Vietnam war and the 60’s revolution!!! It gave us the first wars since Vietnam, the Internet and Information Revolutions, the unification of Europe, the Millennial generation, and the total corruption of politics! How amazing is that forecast? Not just financially but even more so SOCIALLY!
Anybody who is not fundamentally impressed by the breadth and complexity of the Hasbrouck's ideas, if not utterly shocked that the social patterns and cycles of mankind can be so incredibly predicted so far in advance, is better of ignoring this entire study, and going back to something in a much smaller box.
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.
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 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.
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.
