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 Numbers
The 2nd Volume in The Law Of Vibration Series
By Dr. Lorrie V. Bennett
The Law of Vibration by The Numbers by Dr. Lorrie V. Bennett ( $6,000.00 )
Overview From the Author
This book will provide the initial unveiling of the 13 Sacred Numbers, revealed in the secret code hidden in The Magic Word, that are the basis for Gann’s system and the natural law/logic behind them. No one would know how to use those numbers unless they have worked through the wave mechanics presented in Volume 1. This book is the primer for putting those numbers into wave form using a simple mathematically sequenced wave structure to teach it.
So far in the Law of Vibration series the process of developing wave formations has been presented to help you train your mind to see the interval waves and their interactions in an idealized/perfect structure (Book 1), and this book has presented the ideal/sacred number intervals that are used to build those waves, how to develop a number set that is created by the interaction of at least two major intervals that are in a market. (Book 2). Included is an introduction to the tools that are helpful in analyzing the chart to identify the major wave formations in a market, break them down into their lower waves structures as well as applying the number set.
In this book a system of vibratory numbers will be revealed that allows one to easily build the dominant (Primary) and Sub-Dominant (Secondary) cycles in a market. More tools will be presented that help in understanding the vibratory structure of the market and its use. These tools are primarily Gann in nature such as the Fans, Squares, Number Squares and many of the various number charts Gann utilized in his work.
Also within the works is the Periodic Table of Numbers which helps to reveal the “hidden octave” of the square root of two as well as the measures of PHI and PI and their source calculations within the very Structure of Numbers. Then by utilizing the developed Structure of Numbers and the techniques of Waves from Patterns one will be able to build a cyclic wave form that correlates to the markets they are drawn from. Techniques as well as theoretical development of those techniques will be discussed which will increase the students understanding of how to apply the Structure of Numbers as shown in the Periodic Table of numbers to project both time and price.
Numerous example Charts of the numerical LOV will be developed showing why the lows of a market can predict the very structure of that market. Also included are templates to allow the student to develop their own understanding of Gann’s Master Charts and how to utilize the information contained in evaluating the market’s time and price. Additional evaluation of the event of Attenuation from Patterns will be developed as well as presentation of the underlying number structure of the waveform.
The element of Number sets will be presented as a technique to determine the numbers which are active in a Market. This draws from Baumring’s numerous examples of utilizing Primes and divisions to develop the active number sets. Numerous examples will be presented which will provide the student with sources to develop their own number sets to define their markets as well as example markets showing the presence of those number sets working in a market.
The utilization of square roots and cube roots will be investigated explaining the why of many techniques developed over the years to explain the markets. It is the goal of this text to reveal the hidden structure of the numbers as they pertain to the markets. Giving the sacred numbers and their source as well as the relationships between those numbers that allows the student to quickly sort the numerous measures of a market into the active cycle lengths and the associated number sets.
The harmonic and musical structure of the market will be defined, calibrated and orientated to the cycle structures provided by Gann. The use of the Square of 9 as a musical octave calculator will be elaborated. The theory of how markets can be read as music will be fully explained.
I am aware that all would like to have the whole of the Law of Vibration at once, but it is being released in steps to allow the student time to absorb each part of the Law and to force them to study, practice and apply each step along the way because if you miss a step, the Law is not as clear, and its usefulness diminishes with each missed step.
I have broken the series into points where if the information is taken and applied the student could continue to progress in the Law even if no other books were purchased. This makes the work available to all at least in some form. Don’t expect mastery in a few days, weeks or even months. As each step was taken in my research, a span of years could occur as I practiced the steps and watched what was occurring in the charts.
It is my hope that by presenting this information, it will shave at least a decade off your studies and path to mastery, but you must still perform the exercises and spend the time drawing on charts. But having this knowledge will speed up the path and bring you to an awareness of its full potential faster.
My prayers are with you,
Excerpt: Author's Introduction
The Whole Wide Wonderful World
The whole world is very intimidating and overwhelming. Due to this, man has spent eons observing his world and then making it less intimidating and manageable for life? How does he do this? He divides his world into parts. He takes one part of life and creates divisions that allow him to slowly comprehend his world. Let us begin with what man perceives. He sees light and color, so he took all the light that he sees and divided it into colors such as yellow, red, blue. Those he labeled primary colors. Then he discovered that by blending those colors together you found other colors. Red and yellow made orange, blue and yellow made green, and red and blue made brown. And after a while, he had so many colors that he created shades of green, shades of red, shades of a color he was trying to describe. In this way, man organized color so that he could talk to others about what colors he was experiencing. He then had to teach others about colors and so as kids would say…. school began.
He took sights, sounds, touch, taste, temperature and created divisions that could be used to describe his world. Then he went further and began dividing up the celestial sphere into signs, the world into countries or continents, even the spoken word became a division of sounds called phonics. Everything is divided. What is key, is to share what you have divided, explain how many divisions were created, and what each division stands for.
If you divide colors, it is what that color looks like, sounds are divided into different tones, touch into what it is, a temperature, a vibration, a texture and all the other things that define the characteristics of what we experience in interacting with our world. What man never agreed on is how many divisions there needed to be. Some divided by 2 for male and female, others by 4 which are the number of seasons for most of the geographical regions where man lives. Some divided by 10, or the number of fingers on the hands and toes on the feet. Some divided by other divisions that were not always evident, such as the division of numbers beyond the simple counting of 1 to 10.
Then in each division was given a name and hopefully a description. So, when you are attempting to learn about someone’s work you should ask a few questions to fully understand the part of life you are dealing with. What part of life is this dividing? What was the characteristic that was divided? Why did you use the divisions that you used? What does each division mean or what characteristic is it meant to contain?
When these questions are asked, one begins to understand how to use that part of life that is being explained, how to mix them together, how to shape the world with them. What you must understand is that all things can be divided, all parts of nature can be compartmentalized and that the key to using them is to understand what the divisions are meant to reveal.
In learning about a new part of life, one should seek to understand what characteristic of life is being considered, why it is being divided the way it is, and what are the actual number of divisions. But know that in dividing things, often those things that are similar in nature can also be grouped into similar characteristics such as color, sound, touch, speed, gravity, as each is a division of wave lengths of light, sound, vibration, speed, and gravity.
In this text is presented a system that helps you to define the Law of Vibration. It is based on the understanding that numbers are used to define divisions of our world and that numbers can create the divisions that occur in the world. It is presented utilizing a numbering system that is known to most, the numbers of music. It could have been presented using any system of definitions but as music is universal and known to most, it makes sense to use that knowledge to present new information and thoughts. And music itself is the process by which the characteristic of sound as a wave is presented and a wave is a vibration. So, I ask the reader to accept that there is a basis that is presented, musical notes, but that in building the understanding some changes are necessary to the understanding.
Other Selected Excerpts From The Text
The following spiral images illustrate concepts from the text:
After determining the keynote, the related scale and major notes that will be played in the sequence becomes important. Growth in the markets is noted by many techniques… Fibonacci, Square Root of 2, Spirals, Geometric and Gann expansion levels. But which of all the numbers is the most important? Gann used Square root growth on his square of 9 which strongly correlates to the Law of Vibration as noted here. Others have used Geometry with square roots other than 2 for the growth. I would propose a generator of sequences/growth based on the Law of Vibration as exposed here, growth by the squares of numbers. The major point that all are searching for is the sequence that a market will follow so that an estimated price or time can be found. There are three which present themselves in the Periodic Table of numbers.
The square of 9 is an octave calculator which can be utilized for finding the notes and their value points in the octave for vibration work. The secret to the Law of Vibration and the square of 9 is to be able to utilize squares and square roots. As our system is based on this system and the esoteric/Biblical logic already explained it should be easier to grasp the structure of the square of 9. In most cases the square of 9 is presented without any additional instructions and often those that are given are not complete and leaves the user confused. Using the squares, the family of numbers and the logic presented at the beginning of this book will help the reader learn and understand the square.
Remember that the Hexagon chart and the Square of 9 are related and one should spend time mastering both. In this way, you can move from one chart to the other and gather the information that is necessary for the octaves work. Or you can do as so many in today’s world do…just use the computer and let it tell you what you need to find. BUT as a researcher I have found that physically using the square of 9 and my hands seems to bring a better understanding and mastery of the material that just looking at a computer screen.
In all cycle work, there is a point where two cycles can overlap and create a common time span which can cause an error in your study. The time span can make one consider that it is a specific cycle that is present. He cautions you to test the other possible cycles to make sure that your finding is correct.
Gann was very adept at hiding information in plain sight. As covered, the square of 9 is an octave calculator that works for price. He also taught it was used for time but there was a second “Time Calculator” that he used as well.
Remember that the key to Gann is the squaring of time and price and the squares of numbers. He has the square of 28 on a price chart in which he shows 28 points along the price (y) axis and 28 points in time along the time (x) axis. This is the squaring of price and time. In our Family of numbers, we have the numbers which create the different octaves listed under the octave: ____ heading. By using the numbers listed under the octave heading you will know that these are the numbers to create it.
Remember from above that there are three ways to find notes that will create a sequence 1) Dimensional growth 2) Squared numbers sequence 3) Multiplying notes (parents) to create notes. Each of these can create a sequence of expected notes when dealing with the moves of a market. A full study of a market and its prior bull and bear runs should help determine the progression of notes to expect in your market price. Time should correlate with the movement from one note to another note.
As noted in the section above about the notes and their percentages we can find points where significant support and resistance can occur. Gann’s retracement lines and related percentages are based on the idea that the prior highs and lows will hit “Octave notes” and the strongest being the “whole numbers” of the square of 9 i.e. perfect squares. If we take a whole number and then its 100% advancement, we will arrive at the next octave up of the number. 50% up will result in its opposite on the square of 9 and a 5th position while 50% down will give the lower octave of the note. It is in this way that the 100% and 50% levels above and below our note become critical as they represent the octave and its 5th.
In the lower time frames, we could find difficulty in getting the LOV to be seen as the steps between the numbers is so great a move in the market can be seen as being within a single note. The Thirds suggest a possible way to work with the inner space of the notes. When a number is multiplied 100 the result is a common sequence of numbers in the square root with a different placement of the decimal. In the Kabala of numbers which we used above as a source for the verification of numbers we also draw the divisions of a circle.
When you have constructed the squares correctly you will gain additional insight into the structure of your market. When placed correctly and working you will be able to see nodes of price as they rest at the fan lines. By measuring from node to node as seen below you will find an active cycle, Primary or Secondary.
The ability to find price and the length of time is critical to the Law of Vibration but to be able to move further in the analysis of our market charts, the use of Geometry is considered. To incorporate Geometry requires the evaluation of Polygon structures that are built by market moves.
In the initial phases in the study of Geometry, we learn of the sphere created by the circle raised into the 3rd dimension. Then we learn of the cube created by the square raised into the 3rd dimension. The triangle which become the tetrahedron and the octahedron and finally the pentagram which becomes the dodecahedron. Each of these represent the Platonic solids. All the reading from Plato, Kepler and others is to learn how these solids are developed and how one can begin to recognize them in nature. The same must occur in the markets. How do we learn to see them and determine which of the solids is present in our markets? To begin one must take the first step to recognize the elements of your chart that create the solid.
One hidden fact in the equation above is the presence of each dimension within the formula itself. The V represents the point of the creation (God). It has no length. The E represents the line which is a structure of the 1st dimension which has length but no width. The F represents the shape which is a structure of the 2nd dimension as it has both length and width. The cube represents the 3rd dimension as it has length, width, and height. What we are attempting to develop is an ability to see the different points of the solid and then combine those points into the solid itself.
One way to help see the polygons in a market and to develop your market’s waves in the different time frames is to look for the rotocenters of the price movement. The rotocenter represents the presence of the node and the axis of symmetry. The nodes in a chart are not restricted to a point on the price (y) or time (x) axis but can be on the diagonal (z) axis.
Rotocenters help to identify the axis of symmetry, vectors of the geometric solids, edges of the polygon and help to reveal the shape of the waves as not all waves are sinusoidal in nature. They can be skewed and it is usually due to the interaction of the harmonics of the fundamental wave. Practicing finding Rotocenters helps to learn the length of your markets waves as well as how they interact. When combined with the ideas of sections of market moves or Elliot waves a lot of information and understanding can be gleaned from the market charts.

Here’s Jerry! Baumring, A First Step to the bigger picture: Geometry
This book has not yet been released, though the Online Forum has been open for over a year and is filled with information and content from the book.
Dr. Bennett submitted her final draft of the manuscript in May of 2019, 1000 pages in total, which will be reviewed and analyzed by the pre-order group as it is edited for final publication, expected by the end of 2019. If you would like to be involved in the work and edit early, please sign up now!
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.
