How to Make a Cycle Analysis. By Edward R. Dewey. Written in 1955 as a correspondence course, this how-to manual provides step-by-step instructions on all elements of cycle analysis, including how to identify, measure, isolate and evaluate cycles.
The most detailed cycle course ever written, by the founder of the Foundation For The Study of Cycles.
Like W D Gann, Bayer understood the Secret Cosmology behind the financial markets discovered within Ancient teachings.
His 9 books cover deep esoteric finance, including topics like Squaring of the Circle, the Ellipse, and the 5 Fold Horoscope. We do a quality hardcover reprint of each of his works and offer a 2 Volume Suede Edition of his Complete Works.
W.D. Gann’s original work is a critical element for any Gann researcher, but many find Gann’s deeper work challenging without help from well-seasoned analysts and traders.
We offer valuable secondary works presenting and developing Gann’s ideas: the best teachers in this field are not so much competitors, but fellow contributors to ongoing research.
Modern astronomy is a pale derivative of the true "logic of the cosmos", Astrology, the science of all-pervasive relationships between cosmos and man.
Early proponents of "astronomy" were ALL students of the Astrological arts, from Ptolemy, to Copernicus, Galileo, Kepler, Tyco Brahe, and Newton.
In the 1940’s Gann published a Recommended Reading list of about 90 books, each containing an essential part his system, which he sold to his students.
n the 1980’s Dr. Baumring compiled about 70 of these titles, and we have collected the remainder, providing the only complete set available.
We strongly recommend these works to all Gann students.
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.
Systems of numerology date back to ancient Egypt, India and Israel. Hebrew number science, Gematria, was woven through the sacred texts of Semitic religion.
Plato used numerical codes in his works, and Thomas Taylor elaborated the advanced systems of Pythagoras in his "Theoretic Arithemetic of the Pythagoreans".
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 Gann’s system of trading and market order.
Baumring found and elaborated the system of scientific cosmology at the root of Gann’s Law of Vibration.
There is no other Gann teaching that gets close to the depth of Baumring’s work.
The Law of Vibration by the Patterns
By Dr. Lorrie V. Bennett
The Law of Vibration by The Patterns by Dr. Lorrie V. Bennett ( $2,000.00 )
Intent of This Course
The intent of this course is to teach the principles of Theoretical Wave Mechanics as an introduction and foundation to Gann’s Law of Vibration. The theory of Wave Mechanics views market action as the composite of multiple underlying component waves, or cycles, that are harmonically combined to create patterns and structures in the markets. When the underlying elements of these patterns are understood, they can be used to determine the cause behind market and to project the expected outcome which follows.
This theory is the groundwork beneath all of Gann and Baumring’s higher teachings and is an essential prerequisite to move on to the deeper levels of Gann Theory presented in Vols. 2-4. These principles derive multiple forecasting techniques, which Gann used to produce his own forecasts. These principles are applied to multiple markets to create ongoing, real-time tradable forecasts, which can be used by students to trade.
Introduction & Overview
This first volume in a four-part series lays the foundations for the understand of the science of W. D. Gann’s Law of Vibration. Patterns is really the “introductory” volume to the series, because it does not yet present Dr. Bennett’s breakthrough insights into Gann Theory, but lays the groundwork required to understand the higher insights when they are presented in Volume 2, Numbers. However, Patterns is still a deep and valuable course, filled with information and tools that most analysts have never seen before.
Patterns is based upon an exercise originally presented by Dr. Jerome Baumring in the 1980’s as an essential first step in the development of an understanding of how underlying wave components, or cycles, are combined to produce a composite or summational wave. The theory states that financial markets are comprised of such structural components, much like a Fourier model, where these underlying waves or cycles combine to create the phenomena we see as “the market.”
And understanding of how to measure and derive these component waves from a composite pattern, is critical for any kind of insight into cycle analysis. This course teaches this process of analysis and understanding through the initial use of Theoretical Wave Models, beginning with simple 4-wave models, and then advancing on to more complex 5 and 6 wave models, which begin to create composite wave structures that very closely model recognizable market movements.
The reader is taught through this primer to understand the relationship of the underlying composite waves, and the harmonic relationships that such waves will generally have in nature and the markets. From this insight, the reader then learns how to reverse engineer a composite model to dissect the underlying waves, to determine their lengths, and other mathematical variables. Once this is done, it is possible to begin to track individual cycles as they run through the charts, thereby enabling the analyst to forecast short term turning points, as well as general trends and major highs and lows.
Understanding the relationship of underlying composite waves is critical to a higher form of Gann science, the art of pattern recognition. After the text lays the general foundations of wave mechanics theory, it then proceeds to develop a vast collection of varied composite waves in order to build a catalog of every possible composite patterns, which can be used to identify patterns in the markets, so as to understand exactly what is occurring on the underlying scale when we see these now familiar patterns. When one learns to recognize these patterns, and the mechanics behind them, one can them begin to know what to expect following them, since we know what the underlying wave structure implies. Familiar patterns present tell-tale signs of what is to come, at least for those who know how to read them.
These principles are critical to the understanding of Gann’s Law of Vibration, since vibration itself is nothing but an expression of harmonic components in nature that interrelate to produce conjoined effects in any potential medium of expression. To learn to read these mathematical relationships can provide an insight into the causes and effects of many, if not all, elements in natures. Our life itself is governed by cycles that contain basic rhythms and periods that determine the flow of our lives.
Our days are determined by the rotation of the Earth and the morning, noon, evening and night that produces the 4 ¼ cycles of our day. Our months are composed of the 4 ¼ cycles of the moon progressing through its 4 phases, new, 1st quarter, Full, 3rd quarter, one for each week, determining our months, except for the human error in calendar creation, which attempts to unevenly force 13 yearly full moon cycles into an artificial 12 cycle schedule. The Mayans understood this, and one of their 19 calendars provides a 13-moon template of equal months tied to the lunar cycle.
Our years our divided into 4 seasons, Spring, Summer, Fall and Winter, again as the result of even cyclical movements, which few may understand well, but which control all our lives from birth until death. The sun produces an 11-year Sun Spot Cycle which influences our weather, our markets, and many more subtle things yet to be understood by “the public”. And many other longer cycles can easily be illustrated, like the 7-year cycles which seem to determine our life phases with an uncanny logic than few can deny once investigated.
The point is that our life experience is dominated by unknown underlying forces or cycles that conjoin for a mass effect that is our experience of life. Similarly do the markets respond to such influences, and to understand them, just like to understand ourselves, we must see, know, measure and predict those forces. This course teaches us to read these underlying influences in the markets, not by studying any kind of cycles or causes, but by simply looking at the composite phenomena and then breaking down its components to read and predict into the future.
The first half of this course explains the technicalities, process and principles of wave mechanics in great detail, and lays out how this phenomenon controls the structures behind the market. The second half of the course shows what to do with these principles and how to apply them in the markets.
Rather than elaborate each application here, I simply refer you to the Table of Contents to see the very specific concepts and subjects that are presented, in relationship this base theme of wave mechanics. If you are not immediately clear what these ideas are and how they are applied, then you can rest assured that the material in this course will be new and useful to you.
3 Applied Forecast Types
As we progress from the theoretical section to the applied, Dr. Bennett shows how these principles can be used to generate 3 entirely different forecasting processes, which are more advanced than what is understood by most technical analysts. These powerful tools create 3 noncorrelated types of forecasts generating different projection results which can be cross-correlated to strengthen confidence in one’s market expectations:
Forecast Type 1
This approach takes the analysis of a particular interval or multiple underlying intervals and shows how to project those time periods forward into the future to determine potential turning points based upon these cyclical progressions. This is a very valuable tool, and though quite simple in its conception, once you understand the fundamentals of this work, it provides valuable reversal indications in any market.
Forecast Type 2
This type of forecast identifies similar sections in the market based upon their wave mechanically determined intervals or periodicity. It then allows the user to select segments of past market history which most ideally model current price action. There are multiple layers of complexity that both determine and refine this type of forecast, but the ultimate output provides and actual turn-by-turn forecast for any market using past date to project future outcomes.
Forecast Type 3
Composite Wave Projections. These are a much more sophisticated type of forecast model, but clearly explain how Gann made many of his most famous forecasts like his 1929 Forecast of the Stock Market. This also explains exactly what Gann was doing with his Master Forecasting Charts, and teaches how to create and use Master Forecasting Charts for any market. These models take sophisticated composite inputs and correlate them to produce forecasts for the future. There is a trick to creating such forecasts, which is determined by understanding the wave intervals so as to properly know the elements that require combination for the required output. This forecast type, with Dr. Bennett’s explanation, will allow the reader to recreate many of Gann’s most famous forecasts from the past. Not only does she explain how to do it, but she provides software that makes it easy to do it for any historical or current period in any market.
There are many more fascinating tools and elements presented in the text, like a recreation of Marechal’s famous stock market prediction in the 1930’s, comments about how Alan Andrews’ Pitchfork tools can be better applied understanding wave mechanic theory, numerous principles out of physics and engineering that can be easily applied to the markets once this theory is understood, and much, much more. Again, I refer you to the Table of Contents for full details.
Market Forecasts to Track & Trade in Real Time
Dr. Bennet includes forecasts of 7 different markets in this introductory course, showing how to look at each market from this wave mechanical perspective, and illustrating how to use the principles in the book to analyze, forecast and trade these markets. She elaborates numerous further specific applications that derive from this perspective, from Angles of Attack, to Reflective Angles, to interval measurement and projection and much more. Again, rather than list them all here, I direct you to again to the PatternsTable of Contents.
The markets discussed in this course include the Dow, Silver, Bonds, Soybeans, Wheat, Corn, and Crude Oil, and since the course has been released, on the Online Forum, she has begun a new analysis of Coffee, USDEUR, and metals and miner stocks. She also plans to begin analysis of a few of stocks as well, to demonstrate these principles across many markets. Analysis of all of these same markets will be continued in each of the following courses, and on each of the progressive Online Forums, so that as the series progresses, the student’s understanding of each market will grow as he learns to apply the newly learned techniques to the same markets.
It is also hoped that this applied apprenticeship approach to analysis and trading will provide the opportunity for students to help to fund their own education as a result of the practical application of these techniques in their own trading. There are some extreme market moves coming around the corner, as forecasted by Dr. Bennett, so there will be much opportunity to profitable apply these techniques in the near term.
A fundamental element included with this course is membership in the Patterns Online Forum, which provides a classroom environment where Dr. Bennett can present and further develop the theories presented in the book, while illustrating the applications through real-time market analysis and forecasting. This will take the theoretical presentation included in the Textbook and make it real through the application to market analysis.
This classroom will be an interactive environment where students can ask ongoing questions to be sure they understand every detail, and engage in research and discussion among themselves to digest and master the subjects. These discussions and presentations will be preserved forever, so that later students can benefit from the Q&A of those who came before them. The Forums will also provide an environment where group analysis of the markets in the textbooks can be discussed, updated and traded as time progresses.
Dr. Bennett is extremely generous in her online teaching, and provides long and detailed answers to student’s questions, supported by detailed charts and Excel spreadsheets. She is constantly coming up with ideas as to how to better present her ideas, and has recently asked if we could use video to walk through analyses so as to make it clearer.
She also just began analysis of a fresh new market that she has never looked at before, the EURUSD, and will use this market as a tutorial to walk everyone from step one through a full analysis of this entire market, with the result of producing a forecast. With the book only having been pre-released for 2 weeks to the first 55 students, the Forum already has over 400 Q&A posts, an indication of how active this Forum will be!
The Importance of Wave Mechanics - (Comments By Dr. Bennett)
This Wave Mechanics exercise helps to bring you to the understanding of how the interval of time can play out in a chart, where to look for it if it disappears, and how to identify when ygour cycles have hit a true repeat point. Once you know that, then you can get the repeating points in the market. Baumring did not have all the interval structure but did have a lot of it. But you must have this base knowledge to be able to tease apart the cycles into their individual threads and then follow them in the chart.
The bulk of my work is based on this process (wave mechanics) and understanding the shifting of the waves at the nodes and how to apply intervals in the markets using idealized waves. Hurst does something similar, to a point, but I am attempting to present Baumring here as his lesson provides a strong basis for the Law of Vibration as Pure Numbers. There are only 13 numbers you must have to make all stock and commodity market cycles work. Hurst has only 2, if memory serves correctly.
At one point, I realized that this exercise was the first step in the development of the Law of Vibration, a critical step that few ever do. I need this knowledge to be well understood by everyone who studies my series, so that when the next book, Numbers, comes out, most will have an idea of how to use what I am about release. I am preparing to release, in Law of Vibration by the Numbers, the 13 Sacred Numbers and the natural law/logic behind them. But no one would know how to use those numbers unless they had worked through this lesson from Baumring’s course. This book is the primer for putting those numbers into wave form using a simple mathematically sequenced wave structure to teach it.
How much time and effort will i have to apply to using wave mechanics ongoingly?
After working with the Waves, the Numbers and the Planets, I can work thru a new market in a couple of hours. The Key is coming in NUMBERS. Once you have that “numbers” skill, then a lot of the time that is taken up pounding on the charts is reduced. But you must be able to identify the waves that correlate to the numbers! That is why this book is first. Then once you have a number, you will have a planetary setup to follow and study.
Often, I can take a point and have the Main cycle and 2nd cycle in about an hour or less. That is why the Law of Vibration is the key to getting an understanding of the market. But you do have to develop each skill one step at a time. The thousands of hours I spent on the charts was what it took to pull out the LOV. Getting a grip on it would have been less if I had what is in NUMBERS and PLANETS first.
And Yes, I use the wave mechanics all the time, it is not just some theoretical exercise that is later laid aside when you understand the more advanced material. If one cannot read the waves, you will not be able to see the interactions of the Dominant, Secondary and other waves playing together, and you will not be able to apply the later steps which come in Numbers, Planets and Geometry in your analysis. Understanding the wave mechanics is critical to the entire Law of Vibration analysis!
Is this material subjective?
NO! It is fully reproducible by others. Everyone will produce the same analytical result, and if not, they are doing it wrong. I have an associate who understands this work to a strong degree from years of being my bouncy board and working a lot of this thru with me. He now makes forecasts for a few banks based on a small portion of the LOV that he has thoroughly mastered, with an occasional utilization of all the LOV when he gets stuck.
You will not have to use all of the pieces all of the time, and most will develop the techniques in these books with their own personal flair. But the underlying knowledge is the same. I move thru all the techniques I am showing, as it is now second nature, but in truth I use NUMBERS most of the time, and PLANETS when necessary, with a great skill of seeing the underlying wave structures.
Will it be outmoded?
Now that is the beauty of what you are learning... what is working today worked in the 1700's until now as well. I also use a lot of this knowledge in forecasting world events other than just the markets. I took a few years away from the markets to prove that what I knew was real, with the assumption that if it worked elsewhere, it was real. It works elsewhere as well. So, then I came back to the markets with what I had learned, and the increased skill, and found the markets very easy to work with.
Do your forecasts have high low high low sequence?
There are 3 Forecast Types that are in the 1st volume: Type 1 are projected dates of expected turns based upon similar wave sequences which do give the expectation of it being a high or low, a Type 2 Forecast is a wave tracing, or market model, which gives an actual road map, or picture of expected directions, and the Type 3 is a true Gann based forecast showing how he looked back to prior time cycle points to generate a future forecast model, which were what we often saw as his published forecasts, like the one for 1929.
Do you cover inversions of cycles in your course?
Inversions are covered first in Volume 1 through an understanding of wave mechanics which will demonstrate that not every seeming inversion actually is one at all. Inversions are usually missed cycles caused by a weak understanding of underlying cycles. But this does not mean that there are not real inversions. These will be covered in the 3rd book of the series, Planets, as real inversions have particular influences that cause them, which will be taught as to how to read and determine.
Does each forecasted time cycle pivot also has a mathematical price point?
Numbers, Volume 2, will go into the price points very intensely, with additional understanding coming in the 3rd Volume. The first volume is an introduction to wave theory and mechanics to lay the foundation for the following books. Book 1 does not discuss price but only waves and their structure and how to project waves forwards. It is an introductory book. The real meat is in Books 2, 3 and 4. But by using the techniques in Book 1, you will be able to determine expected trend direction and overall wave structure. It was not my intention to touch on price in Book 1. It is mostly time, but Book 2 goes very deeply into price.
Can the numbers system be used for intraday trading?
Yes it can be used intraday, but I am holding the time frame to the upper ones to keep people out of the weeds. I have an intraday system that is based upon other principles than the Law of Vibration and Brad and I are discussing releasing a book in between Vol 2 and 3 on intraday timing techniques for those looking for a purely intraday system.
If everyone learned this knowledge would it make it impossible to trade?
One thing I am learning is that the different levels of learning and variety of markets will prevent what I would call saturation. That and we are discussing limiting the higher books to under 100 sold, or perhaps considering only making 100 available every 10 to 20 years. That way, as people retire, they can be replaced by others, as I doubt these books will every become available on the open market. We have too much security in place for pirating and controls on access to them. There are a few of the lesser books that I am going to write that will not be limited, but the LOV books will be limited. The first edition could be limited to 100 -200 copies, and you must have the first to get the next and so on. This is my way of preventing this from just getting out there.
First Customer Feedback
Dr. Bennett is truly gifted...

"Patterns" arrived last week. The material is outstanding! I appreciated the meaning of the Publisher’s Introduction. It is an invitation to the reader to live this experience of knowledge’s raising in search of the lost Prisca Sapientia (Ancient Wisdom). It is a premise for a higher and more dignified sense of expanding one’s own awareness in the comprehension of Reality. In ancient times, science and metaphysics were holistically linked, studied and practiced together.
The dichotomy between these two aspects of the same Manifestation (Reality) was introduced in the 5th century before Christ with the advent of Aristotle who spread the concept in Western thought of the separation of the "I" from the "Other", between subject and object. It is from this period that the split between science and religion began during what Hesiod called the Age of Iron, and with it the beginning of the loss of Ancient Wisdom. I can see how these Ancient principles come alive in Lorrie’s book when considering their relationship to the higher purpose of Gann Theory. Outstanding interpretation! It is a noble goal that you seek!

This is some heavy shit, and not at all what I expected. (Not really sure 'what' I expected...) It makes me laugh out loud to think that this is simply the 'prep' volume, which anticipates the 'heavy' material. Whoa! I actually did the Fourier series thing decades ago. Spent a thousand hours programming in 'C'. Results were garbage. But hey.... now I know why… I detect that Lorrie's mind runs at Mach 10. Her writing style reflects this. VROOOOOM Go!

Firstly, your book has confirmed for me that most of what I thought about Gann's methodology was correct... I just didn’t have a grasp of the language and processes underlying it! For that insight alone, I thank you, but now I cannot die happy, because I need to understand the rest! I’m reading through Patterns, and I'm getting the impression that when you said it was a primer, it is a primer. I couldn't change gears smoothly until I knew how a clutch system worked. Once I knew how my foot worked the pedal disengaging the drive wheel, it was plain sailing! This feels a bit like that. Would it be fair to say that you've not given us the working model, but a way of viewing the model and its parts in operation? We can see them working, but we don't yet know how they are driven and how the pieces fit together creating market movements. With that in mind, I will be moving onto Numbers.

I have to say Lorrie is amazing and very generous! Glad to be part of it…
This first in a four-part series lays the foundations for the understand of the science of W. D. Gann’s Law of Vibration.
A deep and valuable course, filled with information and tools that most analysts have never seen before. It is based upon an exercise originally presented by Dr. Jerome Baumring in the 1980’s as an essential first step in the development of an understanding of how underlying wave components, or cycles, are combined to produce a composite or summational wave.
The Earliest Financial Astrology Manuscripts. By W. D. Gann, Fred White, Prof. Weston, Sepharial, etc. This collection centers on a set of 4 rare manuscripts dated 1902-1930 proving the advanced level of astrology earlier than previously known.
Their likely authorship is Fred White and Gann documenting the earliest thought in this field.
Gann’s courses were generally categorized as either stock or commodity focused, but all principles taught for stock would equally apply to commodities. Stock traders who ignored Gann’s commodity courses could miss out on many important techniques.
Our Commodioty Trading material provides valuable techniques with a scientific approach to analysis.
For 20 years Dan Ferrera has been one of our most respected market analysts, with a Master’s Degree level of education in technical Gann analysis. One of the clearest interpreters of Gann, he produced his own advanced work of technical analysis, The Spirals of Growth & Decay, prior to writing detailed courses on every angle of Gann’s work
W. D. Gann's Courses
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.
Technical analysis requires sophisticated measurements and calculations, so good software tools save time and allow wider scope.
We have carefully selected software for market analysis, geared towards Gann, geometric, astronomical, cycles or other related topics that we most use, including pre-programmed Gann and Astro tools.
Magick in the Western Esoteric tradition represents a Western equivalent to the internal training systems that are found in Eastern traditions, but is focused on the development of human powers and abilities.
These include mastery of physical, emotional and mental bodies, control over the elements and development of psychic perception and influence.
Metaphysics We have completed several translations of important books on metaphysics.
These include 4 works on universal harmonics by Hans Kayser, as well as "The Archeometer, a Key to All Science", "The Natural Architecture, the essence of Hermetic and Pythagorean science" and Eberhard Wortmann’s "Law of the Cosmos".
In the 1700-1800’s Natural Philosophers studied a wide range of scientific subjects, while not overly specializing in narrow and limited fields as scientists do today.
WD Gann espoused this more holistic system of science, where the different branches were more easily integrated and the grand vision of the scientific system was more interlinked.
