There are two quite different sides to Gann analysis, the deeply theoretical, seeking to understand the essence of the science behind Gann’s market theory, the Law of Vibration, and the outright practical, looking for working tools and techniques that will help with applied trading. Though our greatest interest is in the cosmological theory behind Gann’s work, and the universe in general, we also specialize on the practical tools that traders need to specifically analyze and trade the markets. Some Gann experts excel at theory, while others are simply practical traders who are less focused on ideas in deference to trading techniques. This category will specifically focus upon the books and courses that provide very specific and applied tools from Gann’s toolbox used for real time trading. Some may explore deeper theoretical principles and some may just focus on pure trading tools, but this category will give working techniques to better fill the arsenal of any trader. We often recommend that new Gann students focus first on developing a practical trading ability, so that they can fund their future research with profits from their trades, and then also apply new insights from their theoretical study to their practical trading as they advance. This section will help to identify those most practical tools.
Dan Ferrera is one of the most respected market analysts and educators in the Gann field. For 20 years his works have been some of the most popular in our catalog. Aside from being one of the clearest interpreters of Gann, he also has produced his own advanced work, The Spirals of Growth & Decay, developed prior to his analysis and presentation of Gann’s theories. For those seeking a solid, Master’s Degree level education in technical Gann analysis, we cannot recommend anything more highly than Ferrera’s works.
Ferrera has written detailed course on every angle of Gann’s work and provides a fast track into a deep understanding of each field of Gann’s work as well as advanced topics in technical analysis. He has works on cycles analysis, Gann’s Square of 9, Gann’s Mass Pressure Charts, one on risk management and Gann’s swing trading system, another on the details of Gann’s complex geometrical and mathematical tools, one on astrological Bible interpretation, on teaching how to create yearly forecasts like his own yearly Outlooks, which give a prediction for each year, and more. If you are wanting to get a first taste of Gann and to save yourself years of hard work putting together his ideas, Ferrera is a perfect place to start, and walking through his series of fantastic is like getting a Master’s degree in Gann and technical analysis.
W.D. Gann Works
W. D. Gann’s private courses represent the most important of all of Gann’s writings, and go into much greater detail than his public book series, with which most people are only acquainted. They should be carefully studied in their full detail, as they contain the deepest insights into Gann’s theories ever presented. Stock traders must be sure to study all the commodity courses and vice versa, since Gann often put techniques that applied to all markets in only one or another course.
We stock the complete collection of the works of W.D. Gann, both his courses and books. Our set of Gann’s courses were initially collected and compiled by Dr. Baumring and Donald Mack in the 1980’s from dozens of original rare private course that were distributed by Gann throughout his career. Many people mistakenly think that Gann just wrote two courses called the Master Stock Course and Master Commodity Course. This couldn’t be further from the truth! Each of Gann’s “courses” were actually small, “sections” of a few pages to a few dozen pages, individually bound in paper folders. These various pieces were then compiled into different sets which he sold as various collections at different prices to different students over the decades. Some were more commonly sold to all students, while other were more secretive and sold only to close private students who often signed non-disclosure agreements, and paid exorbitantly high prices. It is these rarest pieces that make the difference between one collection and another.
The later courses Gann sold in the 1940’s and that he “called” the Master Courses were nothing but various compiled collections of these smaller pieces, and would vary according to who purchased them and what price they paid, and were never set until after Gann’s death when purchased by Ed Lambert. For instance, there are pieces that Gann advertised in the 1950’s as “new” like his Master Mathematical Formula for Market Predictions, or his rare #3 Master Time Factor Course which were never included in his “Master Courses”, and similarly were never included with any of the Lambert Gann courses sold by Lambert or the Jones’ from the 60’s until now. So these “master” courses are and have always been incomplete collections. Further, the Lambert Gann courses sold by Billy Jones through the turn of the century, were retyped and re-edited by Billy so that they did not provide the original unadulterated content that Gann produced, making them unreliable, edited versions. Our editions are exact facsimiles of the original copies sold by Gann, with no editing or adulteration of any kind.
Our 6 Volume set of Gann’s Collected Writings was further supplemented by new finds of rare pieces, like those mentioned above, rediscovered by the Institute over the past 30 years since Baumring’s death, and comprises the most complete and the only properly organized set of courses that are available. Gann has very particular sets that he sold only to his higher end clientele, placed in specific order to provide a particular logic to his work. Our collection maintains this order and includes a further collection of rare and historical courses, letters and private materials which make our collection the most complete and important collection available. Serious students of Gann should beware most “supposed” collections of Gann’s writings as most are unauthorized, incomplete, and distorted representations of his work, and cannot be trusted. Our set it the most reliable set of Gann’s unadulterated and most important work available…
While W.D. Gann’s own original work is a critical element for any Gann researcher’s collection, most people will find Gann’s work to be extremely vague, complicated and difficult to penetrate on their own. In our experience, it can take many years, if not decades for the ordinary analyst to, by themselves, digest and apply the deeper techniques of Gann’s, without significant help by well-seasoned analysts and traders who have dedicated years to decoding and creating practical tools from Gann’s techniques. This is why there is a fundamental and valuable secondary market of works presenting and developing Gann’s ideas, and making them accessible to any trader. We believe that the best teachers in this field are not competitors, but are fellow contributors to an ongoing field of research, and that their work is mutually supportive and will provide expanded insights when more material is understood.
We maintain the largest collection of secondary works on Gann Theory of anyone in the field. Many of these books we publish ourselves, and are written by top Gann experts and experienced Gann traders from across the world. However, we also review works written by other Gann experts across the field, and add to our catalog any material we consider to be of high quality and importance from the global community of Gann analysts. With our experience in the field, we are well qualified and to provide a peer review of these materials, so as to filter out the best quality work from that of a lower caliber, and then present these to our clientele who demand the highest standards. So any book or course that you find in this catalog can generally be considered to be of the upper echelon of works on Gann analysis. We have new authors submit their research to us ongoingly, so that we are always adding new items to our catalog with fresh insights, alternative techniques or new ideas. In this way we are able to save our clients significant wasted funds in exploring the territory at their own cost.
Cosmological Economics in Theory & Practice
Proponents of the Perennial Wisdom Through the Ages Meet its Greatest Champions from Antiquity to Today.
Heaven sends down its good and evil symbols and wise men act accordingly
Proponents of this Perennial Philosophy include all of great thinkers of the ancient world and many of the modern world, spanning the fields of science, mathematics, philosophy, religion, medicine, arts, politics and finance. Until quite recently, there simply was no respected thinker who did not embrace the unification of the scientific and metaphysical fields of thought. Their effort was fully focused upon defining, explaining and USING their understanding of this integration for practical purposes, in every field of worldly action.
The Far East & Classical Greece
In the Far East, Confucius was teaching his followers that, “Heaven sends down its good and evil symbols and wise men act accordingly,” while in the West the great founder of experimental science, Pythagoras, similarly stated that “the stars in the heavens sing a music if only we had ears to hear.” Plato, the forefather of modern philosophy, explained that “there is a pattern set up in the heavens for one who desires to see it, and having seen it, to find one in himself.” And Hippocrates, the father of Western medicine said, “a physician without the knowledge of astrology has no right to call himself a physician.”
Christian Proponents from the British Isles
Even the Christian church, which has now sadly lost all touch with the scientific underpinnings behind its metaphysical doctrine, in the past had great thinkers like St. Thomas Aquinas who proclaim that “the celestial bodies are the cause of all that takes place in the sublunar world.” Dante called astrology “the noblest of sciences,” while Nostradamus counseled the Kings of France while leaving behind a record of highly accurate prophecies that predicted major events and wars, even naming the perpetrators like Hitler to within one letter, 100’s of years in advance.
Or the great Dr. John Dee, personal astrologer to Queen Elizabeth I, and inventor of the British Empire, who famously predicted the defeat of the Spanish Armada, and astrologically set all the key dates for important events engaged in by the Queen. He developed a system of Enochian Magic which used an Angelic language to communicate with the spirit realms, while also writing some of the most important astronomical works of his time.
Elizabeth’s great playwright, Shakespeare, proclaimed through the voice of King Lear, that “the stars above govern our condition,” while her rumored son and Chancellor to King James I, Sir Francis Bacon, the father of modern science told us, “the natures and dispositions of men are, not without truth, distinguished from the predominance of the planets.”
Giants of Science: Kepler & Newton
Johannes Kepler, discoverer of the laws of planetary motion wrote, “An unfailing experience of mundane events in harmony with the changes occurring in the heavens, has instructed and compelled my unwilling belief.” This is no great surprise when one understands that ALL of Kepler’s predecessors, the great forefathers of astronomical science, Ptolemy, Copernicus, Galileo and Tyco Brahe, were dedicated and practicing astrologers, who primarily engaged in astronomy in order to improve the results of their more metaphysical practice.
The same applies to the great Sir Isaac Newton, commonly recognized as the most influential scientist of all time, who has been very wrongly portrayed as the father of mechanistic science, when in fact he was a dedicated and unashamed Alchemist first and foremost! His calculus and discoveries in physics, astronomy and science were but mere chips off the workbench of his Alchemical studies which he considered to be of far greater importance. He was fascinated with Biblical chronology and prophecy, wrote a book on Pyramidology which was critical to his theory of gravity, and once said to a sceptic in defense of astrology, “I have studied the matter. You sir, have not!”
Newton’s alchemical papers were, interestingly, purchased by the great economist John Maynard Keynes, who after studying them reflected that “Newton was not the first of the age of reason, he was last of the magicians”. While the bulk of Newton’s writings lean as heavily into the occult as into the scientific, in his day, he was considered a Natural Philosopher, an occupation that did not hesitate to equate the scientific and occult as of equal value, a lesson that should be more appreciated today. Newton is one of the best recent examples of type of scientist that we most respect, and there is no question that he would see the field of Cosmological Economics as a natural exploration of universal causation and influence.
Swedenborg & Goethe
The great Emanuel Swedenborg, called the Buddha of the West, began his career as a dedicated Natural Philosopher of the highest caliber, producing works of physics that are still of fundamental value to our tradition of study, particularly his Principia which contains important theories of Aether Physics and vortex systems. Midway through his life Swedenborg had a spiritual transformation as a result of, surprisingly, tantric practices, and began to see the heavenly planes and communicate with angels and divine beings. He then, using a technique of inspired automatic writing, which when one hand would tire, he could switch to the other to continue, wrote over 30 volumes of utterly fantastic material 100’s of years ahead of its time.
Or the great Johan von Goethe, who developed his idealist Phenomenology of Nature which unified the intuitive awareness of the artist with the rigorous methodology of the scientist, perceiving nature as a whole organism, and exploring its action through the metamorphosis and morphology of plants. His work later inspired the great occult scientist and founder of Anthroposophy, Rudolf Steiner, to develop an entire system that bridged the gap between the metaphysical and physical realms through the distinctions of space and counterspace, showing how the physical universe emerges out of the creative point at infinity through the lattice structure of projective geometry. This science provides some of the critical foundations of Cosmological Economic theory.
The Natural Philosophy Movement
All through the 1800’s there was a thriving tradition of Natural Philosophy, with the great thinkers of the day developing the foundational theorems of modern physics and birthing the Industrial Revolution, while simultaneously investigating the unknown metaphysical realms as equally valid explorations. During these times mainstream science focused on subjects like Aether Physics, Vortex Systems, and Electromagnetism, and the great minds of science Maxwell, Faraday, Eddington, Helmholtz, Jeans, Tyndall, Keely, Lodge and many more studied vibrational phenomena, aetheric astronomy, and explored the newly born Spiritualist and Theosophical movements drawing their ideas and inspiration from these deep metaphysical founts.
The great inventor of AC current Nicola Tesla was born during into the midst of this rich environment. Steeped in this great 19th century science, he creating inventions and filed patents for technologies to draw free energy out of the atmosphere and transport it through the earth to run cars and all electric devices. His ideas were so advanced that we have not yet caught up with them today, and sadly no longer possess their details since they were suppressed by the corporate power brokers of the day and stolen by the government upon his early death.
Einstein & Blavatsky
Few people are aware that the great physicist, Albert Einstein, kept a dog-eared and profusely annotated copy of Madam Blavatsky’s Secret Doctrine on his desk at all times. He told Heisenberg to do the same and said that if he dipped into it whenever he was handicapped by some problem, the book would inspire him. Blavatsky’s Isis Unveiled was also one of his favorite books. He is also known to have said –
“Astrology is a science in itself and contains an illuminating body of knowledge. It taught me many things and I am greatly indebted to it.”
Carl Jung’s Red Book
It should be no surprise that Dr. Carl Jung, one of the founding fathers of psychology, studied Alchemy and astrology deeply in his search for an understanding of the Collective Unconscious and the inner workings of the human mind. His Red Book, discovered in a vault after his death, is filled with his hand drawn Alchemical diagrams and musings. He integrated astrology into his analysis saying:
“Astrology is assured recognition from psychology without further restrictions, because astrology represents the summation of all the knowledge of antiquity. The fact that it is possible to construct, in adequate fashion, a person’s character from the data of his nativity, shows the validity of astrology.”
His friend, Hermann Hesse, further immortalized the principles of the Esoteric Tradition in his Magnum Opus, The Glass Bead Game, for which he was awarded the Nobel Prize in Literature.
It is not just within the field of science and the arts that we find deep roots into the Esoteric Tradition. Many of our greatest modern political leaders also relied on such metaphysical resources.
Freemasons in Political Leadership
It is common knowledge that many of the Founding Fathers of America were practicing Freemasons, including:
It is becoming better known that the nation’s capital, Washington D.C., is laid out according to intricate patterns defined by Sacred Geometry which include specific planetary alignments. There is also a fascinating historical account by George Washington at Valley Forge where he was visited by a mysterious female who gave him a mystical vision of the future of America.
Benjamin Franklin wrote:
“Oh the wonderful knowledge to be found in the stars. Even the smallest things are written there…if you had but skill to read.”
The Astrological Predilections of the Reagans & Roosevelts
And even in modern times, Nancy Reagan received astrological advice from both Joan Quigley and Jean Dixon and governed every activity in the White House during Reagan’s terms according to such provisions.
This was described by their Chief of Staff, Donald Regan, in his autobiography, For the Record: From Wall Street to Washington, where he explains –
“Virtually every major move and decision the Reagans made during my time as White House Chief of Staff was cleared in advance with a woman in San Francisco [Quigley] who drew up horoscopes to make certain that the planets were in a favorable alignment for the enterprise.”
He also wrote,
“it’s common knowledge that a large percentage of Wall Street brokers use astrology.”
However, Reagan was not the only president to have received advice from astrologers. Both Theodore Roosevelt and FDR consulted astrological charts in making their decisions, and Teddy even had his horoscope mounted on a chess board in the Oval Office, saying of it –
“I always keep my weather eye on the opposition of my seventh house Moon to my first house Mars.”
We are aware of another astrologer who advised four sitting presidents prior to Reagan, though this information has not been made public as the Reagan and other stories have.
Indeed, most people would be quite surprised to learn that it is not uncommon for politicians and public figures in today’s society to secretly plan major events, political campaigns and much more according to such advising. Similarly, the selection of incorporation dates according to astrologically favored times is still a very common practice, even by large famous corporations, though rarely made publicly known.
This overview of the origins and proponents of this tradition should serve to demonstrate that the topic we are addressing is hardly some fringe subject pursued only by cranks and quacks. On the contrary, if one were to collect the representatives of this tradition into a single brain trust, it should be evident that this trust would represent the VERY greatest minds of history across almost every field of thought. In fact, there are very few truly great minds or influential thinkers that would not be counted amongst the ranks of the believers in this Perennial Philosophy.
Over the last 30 years we have amassed one of the world’s best specialized collections of the most important works across all branches of these diverse fields. We make the best of these works available through our website, our publishing imprints and bring new and unknown works into English through our Translation Society. Over time, we will continue to collect and organize this material in accessible formats to further trace and substantiate the validity of this knowledge in an attempt to coordinate this material into a verifiable scientific system, with further applications across all fields of scientific, technological and social endeavor.
Dr. Goulden takes a different approach to market analysis than most normal traders and educators. As a Cambridge educated scholar, Goulden is interested in deep principles and in exploring the foundations and implications of both trading techniques and the systems behind them. Before he was ever interested in the markets, he was asked by a friend why Gann’s tools and system are considered to be based upon metaphysical principles. He found this question intriguing and engaged in deep research in the field to answer this question. In this process he recreated a new set of tools based upon principles of Ancient Geometry and Celestial Mechanics. His tools are taken from the same sources as Gann’s and are quite powerful, but are slightly different from Gann’s, so that traders often use them as non-correlated cross-confirmation tools giving similar technical indications but from different perspectives.
His work is deep and has many layers of application and exploration that can be derived from it. His latest work on financial astrology, The Secrets of the Chronocrators, looks back to the astrological and astronomical systems of the ancients, reviving the more mathematical and technical astrology of the Great Masters of the medieval and prior times. Exploring principles like Spherical Astronomy and subtle movements of the Solar System, it seeks to develop a more advanced and scientific system of astrology determination as distinguished from the simpler forms that are generally known. It represents a new movement to re-explore the deeper scientific systems of the ancients that were lost in the press towards the development of a purely mechanical science.
Goulden is a superb educator and the most active Forum moderator that we have seen, with each of his Forums for his courses having 1000’s of posts with detailed questions and answers, deviling deeply into further and new fields of research beyond what is presented in his courses. His Online Forums serve as an advanced classroom where the details of his theories are discussed and elaborated and where students share their research and work with each other while overseen by Goulden, who continually presents new ideas and suggestions.
Hasbrouck Space and Time
One of our great historical discoveries is the Hasbrouck Space-Time Archives, a collection of rare research materials and forecast letters lost for over 30 years. This research develops a new theory of market influence based upon Solar Field Force Theory that was developed during the birth of the space age. The Hasbroucks were deeply connected to the esoteric and financial market communities from the 1920’s through the 1970’s, and contributed a new and recontextualized presentation of information taken from older original esoteric sources. They present a new field of study of solar phenomena, space weather prediction, earthquake prediction and market forecasting.
Muriel Hasbrouck was the inspiring force behind the research, which a foundation in Theosophy and trained as a classical pianist, she pursued an interest in original source works in astrology, through the turn of the 19th century into the early 20’s. She studies with greats like Walter Russell, Paul Foster Case, Aleister Crowley, and Israel Regardie within the esoteric fields. In the market realms she was close with many of the great analysts of her day like Edson Gould, Edward Dewey, Hamilton Bolton, SA Nelson, and more. She and her husband Louis produced a well-received forecasting letter for 30 years called Space Time Forecasting of Economic Trends, and are now quite famous for forecasting the exponential bull market of the 90’s and subsequent crash 50 years in advance! Their theories of Solar influence upon human and earthly experience through geomagnetic influences still lie at the cutting edge of scientific speculation.
Dr. Jerome Baumring
The work of Dr. Baumring is the core inspiration upon which this entire website is based. Baumring is the only known modern person to have cracked the code behind WD Gann’s system of trading and market order. However, even further, Baumring rediscovered and elaborated the system of scientific cosmology at the root of Gann’s Law of Vibration. There is absolutely no other Gann teaching that goes anywhere near as deep as Baumring’s work, or that even so much as attempts to approach the core ideas developed by Baumring. This study is for those who are interested in the mysteries behind the markets and the ordering system behind the universe itself. This is the study of cosmological theory on its deepest level, and of the interaction between man and the cosmos in which he lives, explored through an examination of causation and propagation of forces in the financial markets.
Dr. Baumring’s course program is not easy, and should not be approached without the willingness to commit at least a few years to the study. It is a long and detailed course, requiring the equivalent level of research and difficulty as most PhD programs, but in the field of Gann Analysis, which is not taught at any university. It requires many years of challenging work including the reading of many dozens (if not 100’s) of books required to develop the foundations needed to understand Gann’s approach to the markets. It is a very serious study that should only be approached by those willing to dedicate themselves to intense thinking and vast research across many fields of knowledge including: astronomy, biology, physics, finance, cycles, wave mechanics, geometry, mathematics, astrology, numerology, number theory, numerous esoteric and alternative scientific theories, and much, much more. Baumring summarized his system by the term “Numerical Astrophysics” in an attempt to give a modern name to an ancient theory that Gann himself had discovered.
Of all the analysts and traders we have known, the most advanced have all come to their understanding through following the lead of Dr. Baumring, or through having gone through a similar and parallel study and path of research to his. His teachings represent the “best of the best” of all material on Gann publicly available, but it will not give up its secrets to a mere superficial perusal. Baumring does not spell out simple explanations of how Gann’s techniques work, but rather leads his students into the depth of the science behind the system, while slowly elaborating how the techniques build upon this deeper science. For those seeking a fast path to the application of Gann exoteric trading principles, this is NOT it! Baumring’s work is not merely some market trading program, and indeed if approached this way may be found to be dissatisfactory.
Baumring himself often said to his students, “If you only are looking to make money, don’t bother studying Gann, it’s too difficult. Simply study swing trading systems, risk management and options strategies, and you can make all the money you want to make.” (Note: we have excellent books on these alternatives…) There are much easier and more direct methods to learn to effectively trade the markets than studying Gann. Those in more of a hurry to apply Gann’s work to trading may want to begin with the work of Ferrera or one of our most applied analysts, like Prandelli or Gordon Roberts, and save the Baumring work for a later time to explore at your leisure.
