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.
The Original Announcement of Dr. Jerome Baumring's Gann Harmony: Law of Vibration Seminar Series As promoted by Donald Mack of The Investment Centre in 1985
An explanation of The Wisdom and Insights of W. D. Gann presented by an expert trader who decodes the scientific system underlying Gann’s forecasting techniques.
In 1985, when the partners of The Investment Centre, Donald Mack and Dr. Jerome Baumring first decided to present a 3-year seminar series on the deeper scientific and esoteric teachings behind the forecasting methodologies of the famous trader and analyst W. D. Gann, they announced it to their large subscriber list with the following document. Donald Mack had run the world’s only investment bookstore for many years, yet had never found an expert on Gann who could reproduce Gann’s same forecasting and trading results until he met Baumring. They partnered together to bring a new level of Gann education to the financial community. Baumring’s intention was to be the first to unveil the true science behind Gann Theory and show how his analysis was done, explaining his mysterious charts, the square of 4 and 9, his geometrical angles, his mathematical time factors and cycles, as well as his astrological and numerology techniques.
The Investment Centre
Not Since the Days of the Late W.D. Gann Has a Course Into the Insights of His Teachings Been Offered Comparable to the One We Are About to Offer Here
Beginning with this announcement of our coming very thorough Course of Instruction in W. D. Gann's almost unknown methods of analysis of stocks and commodities, we feel very strongly we must resolve the misinformation and misconceptions of this great, great man's exceptional methodology. To put a stop to so much that has been wrongly propagated (generally by mostly sincere people) as to what Mr. Gann's approach involved (such as astrology, angles, his numbered squares, cardinal crosses, and on and on), we unequivocally state that to the best of our knowledge nobody to date has ever dealt with, or has been able to even accurately explain The Law of Vibration which Mr. Gann with great authority said was the key to explain all phases of market action. Without properly understanding the basic laws relating to Vibration, of what value could any or all of the propagated so-called Gann concepts possess?
Because it is so vitally important to arrive at an understanding of what W. D. Gann was truly about, we are reproducing here several statements he made in his publicized interview in 1909 in Richard D. Wyckoff's The Ticker magazine which deals directly with, The Law of Vibration. and with the extremely important area of Numerology, also very vital to Gann Analysis". Through the Law of Vibration every stock in the market moves in its own distinctive sphere of activities, as to intensity, volume and direction, all the essential qualities of its evolution are characterized in its own, rate of vibration. Stocks, like atoms, are really centers of energies, therefore they are controlled, mathematically. Stocks create their own field of action and power; power to attract and repel, which principle explains why certain stocks at times lead the market and 'turn dead at other times. Thus to speculate scientifically it is absolutely necessary to follow Natural Law". "After years of patient study I have proven to my entire satisfaction as well as demonstrated to others that Vibration explains every possible phase and condition of the market". I have found that the Law of Vibration governs and controls these conditions. I have also found that certain phases of this law governs the rise in a stock and an entirely different rule operates on the decline". "Science had laid down the principle that 'the properties of an element are a periodic function of its atomic weight'. A famous scientist has stated that we are brought to the conviction that diversity in phenomenal nature in its different kingdoms, is most intimately associated with numerical relationship. The numbers are not intermixed, chaotically and accidentally, but are subject to regular periodicity. The changes and developments are also seen to be in many cases undulatory".
Now for the first time since Gann himself personally taught his precepts and his Course of Instruction, we shall be offering a comprehensive and elaborate Course of a similar nature. This begins with a thorough examination of The Law of Vibration, and thereafter progresses to Number Set Theory (Numerology), followed by the Law of Proportion as demonstrated by Geometrical applications, and going onward into the areas vital to Gann analysis such as harmonics, the mathematics of music, angles, along with much, much more. When the area of Angles is studied, the present misapplication of using the Diagonal Angle (the angle formed when using a vertical price scale and a horizontal time scale) will clear away for the first time the misuse of the technique that has been propagated as "Gann Angles" To accomplish this we will turn to Gann's own writings where he states in no uncertain terms that there is much more than just the Diagonal Angle or as he says "There are three kinds of angles - the vertical, the horizontal, and the diagonal angle, which we use for measuring time and price movements". Of the three, the diagonal angle is the least important. Also presented for the first time will be a full discourse on the concept of the squaring of the circle as utilized by, and the secret to Mr. Gann's favorite concept that of the squaring of Price and Time.
It is our plan to offer this Course of instruction to small classes only, in a series of 12 weekend workshops (2 full days) with the time between each workshop being approximately 3-4 months, and requiring something like 3 years to complete. One does not become a skilled surgeon overnight, just as one does not acquire the wisdom of W. D. Gann's discoveries in a one weekend seminar. We strongly emphasize this as we certainly want it to be understood that this course will entail a fair amount of time, it will involve its fair share of hard work and study, and that between each workshop there will be charting to be done, data gathered, books and papers to be read. However, the foregoing is just one side of the coin - the hard work and the hard effort that will be required; on the other side (the reward one), what the student can expect is to have a well-defined trading discipline, that should be able to predict probable turning points in terms of time and price. While no system can be considered 100% effective, in the long run this trading system should produce a profit to loss ratio which strongly favors the profit side.
The teacher at each session of the Course will be Dr. Jerome Baumring, D.PH. of the Investment Centre along with the occasional assistance of a few others. As Dr. Baumring's co-owner and founder of the Investment Centre, Mr. Donald Mack has many times said "In our capacity as book suppliers to the world in our specialist area of stock & commodity books, we have met many who have been trying to fit together the pieces of the puzzle that is Gann. However, no one to our knowledge has come close to solving the mysteries inherent to the Gann methodology except for Dr. Baumring whom we saw evolve from his initial introduction to Gann to a complete mastery some years later. So much so that we unequivocally state that he is the only person we know of that has solved every aspect that Gann wrote about." This statement has been Publicized in our literature several times and to date it has never been challenged.
To accommodate the preliminary interest that has been indicated by many the world over, we shall start off initial weekend workshops as follows:
Los Angeles, December 7th & 8th 1985
Los Angeles, December 14th & 15th 1985
Los Angeles, January 11th & 12th 1986
New York, January 25th & 26th 1986
London, February 1st & 2nd 1986
Frankfurt, February 5th & 6th 1986
Australia, March 1986
The meetings in Los Angeles will be held at the Ramada Inn, 6330 Bristol Parkway in Culver City (just off the 405 Freeway, going south exit Centinela/Sepulveda Blvd. going north exit Slauson starting at 9:00 AM. The location for meetings in the other cities mentioned will be announced later. The price for each separate two to-day Workshop will be $650.00per person payable in advance. This price will cover the attendance at the selected Workshop only. Getting there, meals, etc., will be the responsibility of the student.
To accommodate any possible questions that may arise as to any student's suitability to the material, or the material to them, we do offer this guarantee as follows. Taking into consideration only the first four hours of the first day of any first two-day session, at the end of these first four hours and before the second four hours of that same day, the student would have to notify Dr. Baumring or Mr. Mack of their decision not to go on any further. In this case the cost be $100.00 or the equivalent and the balance paid will be refunded.
The Investment Center Stock Commodity Courses - A Distillation of the Insights and Wisdom of W D Gann
Touching on Some of the Material to Be Covered
1. Geometric Angles
A powerful tool (but be used with other tools) where knowing the correct use of their indications always keeps one on the right side of the market.
2. Support & Resistance Levels
Many Times Invalid. But seldom invalid when studied in conjunction with important time factors investors have been unaware of.
3. Laws Derived From Ancient Knowledge
The laws of Mathematics & Geometry are the proof of the rules derived from the laws, but they are not the rules in and of themselves. To know how to translate these rules through the analytical methodology covered is a vital part of this study.
Ratio & Proportion. The unrealized dominant force of market movement... (A small part from original was lost here)

A Letter From Donald Mack - Co-Director of The Investment Centre
During his lifetime Mr. Gann felt strongly, as set forth several times in his writings, that he had an obligation to pass on the enlightenment that had been heaped on himself in abundance. To this end he published the several books that he wrote, offered a number of stock market and commodity home study courses, put out special papers to his students, and held special study classes along with individual instruction. Carrying on in that tradition will be the Investment Centre Courses as wholly prepared by Dr. Baumring and these will be broken down into one course for stock market students, and a similar, but separate course for commodity students. Each will call for enrollment in that particular course for which there will be an initial one time enrollment fee that shall also include the first chapter in that course. Considering the nature of the Gann material, it is very important to realize that it will not be possible to rush through it as it would be doing yourself and the material an injustice. It will be set up to encourage hard study. We will dispense only one chapter at a time, and before one can go on to the next chapter a written test will have to be ,returned to us that will confirm that the ongoing principles, etc. are being grasped by the student. By this method we want to encourage students to realize that the road to market success is in no way an easy one and that to have even the slightest expectation that we will be offering an easy methodology would suggest that this Course is not for you. Of additional importance please note that we plan to hold 2-3 day meetings in different parts of the country throughout the year at a reasonable charge where we can meet with those taking the courses, discuss important facets of information already presented, and answer as many questions on the material that we can. As we expect worldwide interest in this unique Course, we shall also hold meetings in those places where the strongest interest is outside the U.S. and Canada.
The essence of each Course will be the essence of William D. Gann. And this essence can be summed up in that it will be a strict discipline leaving no room for opinion or emotion. The laws of probability will govern one's actions in the market. Positions taken will be based on many strong reasons as laid out throughout the Course where these reasons support and reinforce each other. No position can ever be taken without a stop-loss order at all times so that if the position proves itself wrong at any time, one always has the stop-loss there to project their capital with minimal losses. Like any discipline Mr. Gann is very emphatic that it is based on hard work and hard study, and holding true to this great truth, we have emphasized this several times in this letter. Please do not enroll in this Course if such demands should be beyond your nature. Quoting the Biblical passage, Mr. Gann made it abundantly clear, "As ye sow, so shall ye reap".
No one should consider these Courses, which will comprise about a dozen or so stock market lessons, and about 15 commodity lessons, to be the entire Gann process, but it will be a beginning to the understanding of the total. Nevertheless, on the completion of this basic Course of Instruction the knowledge gained from the proper study of it all should leave the earnest inquirer of market wisdom with an analytical ability and forecasting basis well ahead of others not knowledgeable in this material. No system or market approach can ever be thought of as being 100% successful, and that applies to this Course as well, but it should be expected that your win/loss ratio will be strongly on the positive side as you utilize sum of all the knowledge gained through taking this Course.
With the format of our Courses, the full and proper name being The Investment Centre Stock Commodity Courses - A Distillation of the Insights and Wisdom of W. D. Gann, being structured to be taken a chapter at a time, everyone can proceed at their own pace as they are directed or care to proceed. As stated before, there will be two separate courses with one being for Stocks and their analysis and the other for Commodities and their particular analysis. To enroll for either course simply fill out the form on page 7. and enclose your payment 'when sending it to us. Before offering these courses to others, this initial offer is going solely to those on our own mailing list where the enrollment fee for the Stock Market Course will be xxxx instead of the price listed, and for the Commodity Course it will be xxxx instead of that shown. This one-time special offer will be good until January 20,1985, after which the enrollment fee for each Course will be as stated. Each enrollment fee also includes in it the cost of Lesson No. 1 for each Course, with each subsequent lesson in the Stock Course being in the Commodity Course payable before each lesson is undertaken.
Acting on the premise that after seeing two lessons the course-taker will be able to decide if they wish to continue or not, we do offer the following Guarantee - if after the first or the second lesson only of either the Stock or the Commodity Course you are not satisfied for any reason, we will refund all that you have paid in to take this Course, less 15% towards our initial expenses.

Here Is Our Latest Listing of W.D. Gann Books and Related Services
Listed below will be found our latest information on books written by William D Gann, along with more material related to his methodology and analysis techniques. Dedicated as we are here at the Investment Centre to this great man, and having made the progress that we have of raising the level of Gann knowledge to what we believe to be of the highest order since Mr. Gann was with us, we find it most important to place the man and his work in a clear and proper perspective so that all can have the opportunity to be enlightened as to the true Gann. This is especially so because there is so much misconception, misinterpretation, and genuine lack of knowledge about Mr. Gann and his analytical and forecasting approaches and techniques as there is compared to that which is the truth about him. This is perfectly understandable as it is very evident that Mr. Gann, who was by nature a secretive man with very strong mystical leanings, was not about to pass on his life's work to one and all thereby negating it forever, since everybody in the market would know the same things.
For anyone who wishes to gain a familiarity of that which we call the "Gann Harmony" we would stress that it is extremely vital to read everything this man wrote. Anyone who is involved in the buying and selling of shares and/or commodities and hasn't read and studied Gann, is losing out greatly by missing that which he can learn from he who is the greatest. Taking any area of human endeavor, if someone stands head and shoulders above all who have followed or preceded them, then it almost goes without saying that that someone is extremely important and someone who should be studied. Saying this is easy to do, putting it all into practice is not because in reiterating what we have mentioned above, there is Gann the Man (as in his straightforward teachings gathered directly from his own writings representing something like 25 or 30% of his methodology) and then there is Gann the Mystic (a combination of hidden meanings in his own writings, combined with unconnected and separated comments many times unclear but vital to each other when one realizes they belong together, and the vitally important key to the 70 to 75% of Gann knowledge missing from his own writings - the study of the books and areas Mr. Gann studied that raised him to his exalted position).
1986-1989 Nine Volumes. The Investment Centre Stock & Commodity Market Forecasting Courses: A Distillation Of The Wisdom & Insights of W. D. Gann. The Nine Gann Course Manuals Compiled By Dr. Baumring Containing His Selection of Excerpts of the Clearest Presentations of the Primary Conceptual Material Necessary For Understanding The Law of Vibration as Taught by W. D. Gann. This Course Presents the Explanation of the Basis of a Natural & Holistic Universal Cosmology, The Law of Vibration, Developing an Understanding of the Laws of Cause & Effect in the Universe, & Their Manifestations on the Various Planes of Consciousness.
1986-1989. These Notes Present A Detailed Record of Dr. Baumring's Teachings, Theories, Diagrams & Market Applications as Presented In His Seminars on Gann Analysis. For further details on this Seminar Series, see www.sacredscience.com/baumring. Each Seminar Lasted Two Eight-Hour Days. The Notes Included in This Set Came from 14 Different Presentations of the Nine Seminars with the First Four Seminars Having Been Repeated More Than Once Each. Dr. Baumring Did Not Follow Exact Lecture Notes But Made Spontaneous Orderly Presentations, Following a Previously Selected Series of Projected Images, Selections of Text & Charts, Upon Which He Would Elaborate During the Seminar. As Students Asked Questions Dr. Baumring Would Explain In Greater Detail Various Aspects of These Topics, so That Each Repetition of An Individual Seminar Contains New Information & Further Elaborations Upon Different Points.
1909- 1955. 6 Volumes, Scans of 4 Large Transparent Calculators, & Scanned Set of 30 Oversized Charts. This set is the most complete, best organized and best priced collection of Gann's writings ever available. I. Marketing Brochures, Interviews, Annual Forecasts & Trading Records. II. The Master Time Factor: No. 3 Master Forecasting Method & Unpublished Stock Market Forecasting Courses. III. Master Mathematical Formula & Calculators. IV. The Complete Commodity Market Course. V. Introductory Stock Market Courses, Mechanical Methods & Trend Indicators. IV. Astrological Writings & Charts
Back in the 1940's Mr. Gann distributed to people interested in his methodology a list of books that he had obviously read and which it would appear were his strong suggestions as to gaining valuable knowledge in areas. extremely important to his methods. This list of books can be found in the accompanying information where we reproduce it totally, and where a careful study of the titles reveal no association at all between these books and stock/commodity trading.
However, when one works out that they are being given insights into the true Gann Methodology in this roundabout way, these books take on a very new and special meaning. Although all parts of each book may not be totally relevant in each book there is something to be found of importance. With some a good part of the book is vital, with others perhaps it is only a chapter or two. But for anyone who deems a study of Mr. Gann's analytical approach to be worth the effort (and as he was the greatest in the stock & commodity market arenas, the effort is definitely more than worthwhile) then this collection of books is practically a necessity.
Most of the books on this suggested reading list are now very rare and difficult to obtain. Over the years we have gathered together about 70 of the 80 books listed and have now reprinted them all. As their greatest value to Gann Analysis lies in a thorough reading and understanding of the many areas of study Mr. Gann presents here, we realize that this material will be wanted by the many who are strongly interested in Gann Analysis and so we are now offering a collection of these important reference works.
Should you also have been inquiring about our W. D. Gann Investment Analysis Course and Workshops which you might have heard about, or been recommended to, we pass on the following details. As this course is taught by Dr. Jerome Baumring who is described by his co-Director of the Investment Centre, Donald Mack, thusly "No one to our knowledge has come close to solving the mysteries inherent to the Gann methodology except for Dr. Baumring whom we saw evolve from his initial introduction to Gann to a complete mastery some years later. So much so that we unequivocally state that he is the only person we know of that has solved every aspect that Gann wrote about".
As word is getting around about the unmatchable level of quality and effectiveness of these Workshops, we are constantly receiving inquiries for information on the Workshops. These Workshops involve 12 - 2 day weekend sessions spread over 3 years (one does not learn the true Gann in just one easy weekend session). Currently we are about to start Session 4 of the 12, and without attendance at the 3 previous ones, it is just about impossible to catch up. We have been asked if the accompanying Manuals can be made available, but we have to reply in the negative. The Manuals are designed to provide background material only in conjunction with Dr. Baumring's teaching, and without this teaching, the Manuals would be hopeless in providing the Gann knowledge sought. So as our Gann Investment Analysis Workshops are well underway and with there being no literature that can be substituted for them, we regrettably have to report that entry to our Gann Workshops is closed.
The Institute Of Cosmological Economics now makes available a complete set of lecture notes containing over 250 pages of notes for all Nine Gann Seminars collected from 14 different Seminars. No student at that time had access to as complete a presentation of Dr. Baumring's ideas as we know have with these notes and the complete Manuals.
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.
