Biographies of market masters, traders and historical figures in our field.
Options provide many very useful benefits, like locking in the limit of your risk, since you can never lose more than the cost of the option you purchase.
With the current volatility of the market and overnight trading, many traders are afraid to hold positions overnight, but options can give a safe way to hold open positions without fear of extreme volatility.
Eric Penicka: Gann Science
The author correlates Gann's exact words to the science of Gann's day to illustrate his phrase "stocks are like atoms". Offering a system of "mathematical points of force" governing the structure through which the market moves, the emerging science of Periodic Table atomic elements provides a system of order through which to forecast.
Gann Reading List
In the 1940ís Gann published a 2-page list of about 90 Books that he stocked and sold to his students, known as "W. D. Gannís Recommended Reading List".
Each book contains some component of Gannís system of knowledge essential for piecing together his system.
Any one book may have one simple idea critical to Gann's perspective.
Most mystical systems tend to come from Eastern Traditions, dominated by Hindu Vedanta and Buddhism, followed by the Sufi tradition.
Judaism has the mystical tradition of Kaballah, and Christianity has great figures like Meister Eckhart, St. Teresa of Avilla, Hildegard von Bingen and Thomas Merton.
Sacred Geometry explores natural order representing foundational templates of the cosmos, via special proportions like "phi", the Divine Proportion, ubiquitous throughout nature as a primary generating and ordering principle.
Musical harmonic ratios dominate sacred geometry, showing how nature is a form of frozen music.
Theosophy, a school of esoteric thought developed my Helena Blavatsky in the late 1800ís presented a revival of many lost esoteric traditions.
Many of Gannís contemporaries were closely involved with Theosophy, and it influenced the Anthroposophy of Rudolf Steiner, the Arcane School and work of Alice Bailey and the teacher Krishnamurti.
W.D. Gann Works
We stock the complete collection of the works of W.D. Gann.
His private courses represent the most important of his writings, going into much greater detail than the public book series. Our 6 Volume set of Gann's Collected Writings includes supplementary rare source materials, and is the most reliable compliation of Gann's unadulterated vital work.
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.
Baumring found and elaborated the system of scientific cosmology at the root of Gannís Law of Vibration.
There is no other Gann teaching that gets close to the depth of Baumringís work.
Cosmological Economics in Theory & Practice
The Financial Markets as A Scientific Laboratory Analyzing the Markets Through the Lense of Scientific Method
Cosmological Economics uses the financial markets as a laboratory of experimentation to test out theories and techniques of analysis and forecasting. This practice serves to shed the light of science into the chaos of supposed randomness of financial phenomena. There is no better way to prove, once and for all, that some kind of predictable order governs the financial markets than to make predictions and produce forecasts, whether short or long term, based upon logical and consistent practices that are repeatable.
The greater the number of successful forecasts and predictions that can be demonstrated, the closer we come to proving that Random Walk Theory is merely a convenient explanation for an inability to perceive the order which lies behind the markets. If the principles of Cosmological Economics or the Law of Vibration are able to produce an above average result in forecasting, this alone proves there is some kind of probability that can be determined in advance. Any probability consistently performing significantly above 50% will demonstrate that there is a non-random component to market behavior. The higher this percentage, the better the proof of order.
Gann’s 92% success rate demonstrated in his Ticker Interview provides an almost perfect record, though not all of those trades were actual “forecasts”. He could just have had a very efficient system that had a high trading success rate. While this might not necessarily prove an underlying system of order, it does demonstrate the value of a well-designed trading strategy, so it still provides proof of the exceptional value of technical analysis when applied to trading systems.
Through the ongoing process testing and trial using techniques of forecasting and trading, if such connections and correlations as we have discussed can be repeatedly proven to exist and a working theory with laws and rules can be elaborated, then any scientific thinker must, if he is a true scientist, consider the potential reality of our entire hypothesis and the implications that evolve from that. Just as with Chaos Theory, if mathematical order can be shown to exist within what was previously considered to be chaotic noise, then we will have made a significant breakthrough in the science of economic and psychological theory.
What Are Financial Markets?
Taking a closer look at our economic “laboratory”, the financial markets, we must first consider exactly what the financial markets are? As mentioned earlier, Dr. Jerome Baumring, the most advanced proponent this field has known, defined a market as “a barometer of mass human psychology.” For what is a market other than the combined thoughts and feelings of the particular group of people who have some interest in a particular subset of the socioeconomic phenomena we call a market.
As explained, the thoughts and feelings of this mass public fluctuate according to a wide grouping of internal and external influences and considerations, causing people’s thoughts and feelings to behave in ways that reflectively cause the price of the market to move up, down or sideways correlated with the summation of the combined positive, negative or neutral thoughts and feelings about this particular financial entity.
Financial Markets as a Human Thought Form
In a sense, we could actually consider a market to be a mass human thought form. And in considering the nature of the possible forces which act upon the fluctuations of this mass human thought form, we discover that at the simplest level they all boil down to three simple variables: hope, fear and indecision. These three psychological variables account for the only three types of fluctuations we find in the markets: up, down and sideways, respectively.
Hope, Fear & Indecision
When people are hopeful, they feel confident and they buy, causing prices to go up. When they are fearful, they sell or even panic, in which case, we see markets go down. When they are indecisive they tend towards inaction, and similarly the market will remain the same moving sideways. So, in the simplest form of analysis, all market action can be boiled down to these three fundamental variables of hope, fear and indecision.
Simplifying the phenomenon this way begins to make our analysis simpler to understand and approach. Really we only must find something that will account for 3 specific forces, an upward force, a downward force, and equilibrating force, which need not even be something additional but the balancing of these two dynamic forces or energies.
Without going into much further detail here, one can see that the study of the markets when approached from the principle of physics and energy, can be considered as a sort of abstracted phenomenon that can be analyzed mathematically, geometrically, energetically, or in any other way that science uses to study and analyze any phenomena. And these are some of the tools and processes that are used in the analysis done through Cosmological Economics, using the markets as our alchemical laboratory.
But the goal is clear. Either predictions can be made within ranges of accuracy and consistency so as to show a greater probability than randomness, or they cannot. If such higher probabilities can be demonstrated, then we have potential theory of interest here which warrants further investigation. If results beyond chance cannot be attained, then the theory is likely false.
But even if the theory of market order is false, we are still left with the very useful and practical study of technical analysis, which provides the capability to produce highly efficient trading systems, like that which Gann used to generate a 92% success rate. A system like this would generate a fortune for any user, whether he was able to forecast or not. So in the end our research is thoroughly justified by either of two potential outcomes:
1. The financial markets are non-random and possess an ordering system behind them which can be understood and used to predict the markets, forcing a reevaluation and extension of scientific theory to include an unknown correlation between physical and socioeconomic phenomena. This would be a truly revolutionary discovery and scientific breakthrough!
2. The financial markets are truly random and there can be found no system of order behind them at least that is discernable using current theories and techniques of science and analysis available today. However, valuable trading systems can still be developed which take advantage of technical understanding of this random phenomena allowing for the development of strategies that produce above average performance, allowing for greater profitability by those who understand them.
Collected Courses of William D. Gann, by W. D. Gann. 1920 - 1954. This is the most complete and best organized collection of Gann's Master Courses, his most important writings.
Without these, Gann is impossible to understand! We've collected all the missing pieces and reorganized them back into Gann's original order.
Gann Analysis goes deeply into fields of history, economics, science, metaphysics, ancient civilizations, occultism, astrology, numerology, astronomy and time cycles.
Gann's Recommended Reading List of 90 titles laid a foundation extended by Baumring to over 500 titles,
We provide comprehensive resources on the deep principles of Gann's work.
Books on the psychological element of the markets and trading. These works cover both how markets are influenced by the psychology of the individuals behind them, as well as the actual psychology behind trading for the trader.
Books exploring the human spirit, its state and development and relationship to higher planes and beings. General works on spirituality that are otherwise hard to categorize.
The Sacred Science Translation Society began in 2004 as a project to translate important and rare works on Cosmology and Esoteric Science into English.
Donors and Contributions raised $40,000 to translate masterpieces from French and German on critical subjects in Harmonics, Geometry, Esoteric Mathematics, and Ancient Cosmology.
Zen and Chan are similar terms from Japanese and Chinese systems of Buddhism, but they originate from the Indian word Dhyana, loosely translated as "meditation".
Zen is a mind science, giving direct access to the core layers of mind.
The origin of Zen is in India, home of Buddhism. Allan Wattís called it "Hinduism stripped for export".
Kayser, the greatest scholar of harmonic science, was far ahead of his time, penetrating the depths of ancient esoteric Pythagorean Tradition to present a universal Law of Vibration.
His "Textbook of Harmonics" provides the most valuable insight into Gannís Law of Vibration of any resource.
We have so far translated four of his works into English.
