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 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...
- S. F., Evansville, WI
"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!
- P. M. Milan, Italy
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!
- M. F. Nova Scotia, Canada
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.
- Dr. R. C., Liverpool, England
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.
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.
