There are two quite different sides to Gann analysis, the deeply theoretical, seeking to understand the essence of the science behind Gannís 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 Gannís 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 Gannís 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 Gannís theories. For those seeking a solid, Masterís Degree level education in technical Gann analysis, we cannot recommend anything more highly than Ferreraís works.
Ferrera has written detailed course on every angle of Gannís work and provides a fast track into a deep understanding of each field of Gannís work as well as advanced topics in technical analysis. He has works on cycles analysis, Gannís Square of 9, Gannís Mass Pressure Charts, one on risk management and Gannís swing trading system, another on the details of Gannís 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 Masterís degree in Gann and technical analysis.
W.D. Gann Works
W. D. Gannís private courses represent the most important of all of Gannís 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 Gannís 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 Gannís courses were initially collected and compiled by Dr. Baumring and Donald Mack in the 1980ís 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 couldnít be further from the truth! Each of Gannís ďcoursesĒ were actually small, ďsectionsĒ 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 1940ís and that he ďcalledĒ 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 Gannís death when purchased by Ed Lambert. For instance, there are pieces that Gann advertised in the 1950ís as ďnewĒ like his Master Mathematical Formula for Market Predictions, or his rare #3 Master Time Factor Course which were never included in his ďMaster CoursesĒ, and similarly were never included with any of the Lambert Gann courses sold by Lambert or the Jonesí from the 60ís until now. So these ďmasterĒ 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 Gannís 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 Baumringís 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 ďsupposedĒ collections of Gannís writings as most are unauthorized, incomplete, and distorted representations of his work, and cannot be trusted. Our set it the most reliable set of Gannís unadulterated and most important work availableÖ
While W.D. Gannís own original work is a critical element for any Gann researcherís collection, most people will find Gannís 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 Gannís, without significant help by well-seasoned analysts and traders who have dedicated years to decoding and creating practical tools from Gannís techniques. This is why there is a fundamental and valuable secondary market of works presenting and developing Gannís 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.
Geomagnetic Research Documents From the Hasbrouck Space/Time Forecasting Archives
To: R. Daniels From: M. B. Hasbrouck Subject: Breakthrough?
Relayed to me yesterday, not confidentially, specifically for transmission to you in our interest: The news that this last week, John Nelson was officially visited by three scientists from the Princeton Center of H.C.A. and informed that they find his work in forecasting radio disturbances "superb."
This is vitally important to us at this time. It means that the prejudice against utilizing planetary correlations has been cracked wide open at top levels both in science and industry. The breakthrough has been accomplished by the very methods employed by GEOMAGNETICS: statistical evidence over a period of time. But for us the immediate implication goes far beyond statistics. It confirms the scientific validity of the basic concept we present in support of our own statistical record -- the concept that a natural correlation exists between the changing patterns formed by the moving bodies of the solar system and changes in the various magnetic (and other) fields known to modern science.
Our first forecasts were found accurate by C. N. Anderson of Bell Telephone Laboratories in 1941, and by Dr. B. T. Stetson in 1942-43, several years before Nelson started his research. We met Nelson in 1950, through Arthur Van Dyke, then assistant to a Vice President of R.C.A. We have kept in touch, informally but frequently, with Nelson ever since. Our work, in the minds of many people is associated with his,t but only in so far as the solar system is involved in both methods.
Nelson's efforts apply exclusively to forecasting radio disturbance periods. The GEOMAGNETIC forecasts cover a wider field of correlated disturbance phenomena - major earthquakes, volcanic eruptions, tidal waves, and (whenever we could check with official data) solar and geomagnetic storms as phenomena in themselves. Recently, our correlations have included U. S. missile launchings from their beginning to the end of 1960, checked with official records.

Geomagnetic Research - Prospectus

Geomagnetics Research, Inc. 319 EAST 50th STREET NEW YORK 22, N. Y. PLAZA 8-1998
GEOMAGNETICS RESEARCH, incorporated in 1961, has discovered and developed a measurable correlation between mathematical astronomy and field physics. From this synthesis has evolved a space-time frame of reference from which it is possible to evaluate space weather conditions through the timing of solar flares, geomagnetic storms, and other field-force phenomena known to be the source of interference in electronic communications, and to constitute a hazard in space flight operations.
Recent astrophysical research has given evidence that space weather conditions -- disturbed or clear -- are directly linked with solar variation and activity. The GMR space-time structure, through the accurate timing of solar flares and related field force perturbations, provides a reliable method for space weather forecasting -- short and long range -- that is vitally needed, and currently lacking, in space science and engineering.
The GMR technique has been successfully applied over the past twenty years to a variety of test projects, from the first predictions in 1942 (radio interference and sunspot variation) to the present high level correlation of solar flares and geomagnetic storms -- and missile launching failures -- with coincidentally timed forecasts.
POTENTIAL APPLICATION AND USE OF GEOMAGNETICS RESEARCH DATA
1. National Defense and Space Agencies
While a primary purpose of Geomagnetics Research is to develop over a broad area the synthesis between field physics and mathematical astronomy, the immediate usefulness of GMR data is in the area of practical prediction.
The number of active centers responsible for efficiency and safety in space flight continues to increase with the expansion of planning for space projects such as APOLLO and GEMINI, and preparatory space launchings. Almost without exception, these research and flight centers -- from the east to the west coast -- are searching unsuccessfully for methods of solar flare and geomagnetic storm prediction.
Because GMR has discovered, developed, and demonstrated a predictive technique with special application to solar flares and geomagnetic storms, the potential usefulness and value of GMR timing and evaluation data should greatly assist all national defense and space agencies -- NASA, USAF, U.S. Army and Navy installations, and the many related centers of scientific and engineering activity throughout the country concerned with space operational activity.
2. Industrial Research and Operation
One of the major problems in the electronics industry is radio frequency interference, known as RFl, which arises from "man-made" and/or "natural" sources -- viz: from operational incompatibility (man-made) and from solar and geomagnetic field-force disturbance (natural.)
As no technical method has been evolved for predicting periods of field-disturbance, the GMR technique, covering solar and geomagnetic storms, radio bursts, and sunspot variations, can be a valuable aid to electronics in dealing with "natural" RFI.
3. Meteorological Centers
Weather turbulence and climatic change are believed to be related to solar flare activity, but the relationship so far has not been included in conventional weather prediction.
The GMR record of solar flare prediction suggests that a correlation of the GMR technique with established weather systems would add considerably to forecasting scope and efficiency.
Further areas of GMR development are now ready for use:
A 20 year record of high level correlation between GMR forecasts of field-force disturbance and occurrence of high magnitude earthquakes.
Biological effects of field-force are under world-wide study by the medical profession, both civil and military. Here it is thought that the GMR system of timing field-force disturbance periods might make a vital contribution to medical research, and to the "Life Sciences" which are being intensively developed by aerospace science relative to manned space flight.
HISTORY AND ORGANIZATION
Approximately thirty years ago, research by an economist and a writer -- Louis and M. B. Hasbrouck -- led to the discovery of the GMR space-time structure and technique. Since then, they have refined and developed both structure and timing techniques, while exploring a number of fields of useful application. In 1961 Geomagnetics Research was incorporated under the laws of the State of New York with an authorized capital of $100,000 consisting of 1,000 shares of $100 par, of which to date 305 shares have been issued. The Hasbroucks turned over to the corporation a complete description of their discovery and timing methods in exchange for 250 shares of stock.
The present officers, comprising the board of directors are:
President Louis Hasbrouck
Exec. Vice President D. C. Townley
Vice President (Research) M. B. Hasbrouck
Secretary-Treasurer E. W. Hermann
Personnel has intentionally been kept small, but can be quickly augmented when required. Because the GMR technique of astrophysical synthesis is a new discovery in science, and by its nature is a part of natural law, it is non-patentable.
Consequently care must be exercised to protect the method in order best to utilize the discovery.
All GMR forecasts are closely checked for correlation with data from official sources: the Federal Bureau of Standards and the High Altitude Observatory for solar flares and geomagnetic storms; the Coast and Geodetic Survey for earthquakes; the National Aeronautic and Space Administration for missile and satellite data.
Preparation and distribution of space weather forecasts are conducted from the present office in New York on a fee or contract basis. Fundamental forecasts, covering any desired period, can be further analyzed as to their special application to the needs of a particular area of use: viz: for electronics, RFI; for space operational planning, selective timing for tests, launchings, or flights; for weather forecasting, advance timing of storm centers. In short, to the know-how of space technology GMR is able to add the vital factor of knowing-when -- and of judging in advance what conditions may be expected in the danger areas of outer space.
The radiation hazard of solar flares in space flight -- particularly in manned space flight -- has been described as "the hostility of space." Professor J. A. Simpson adds, in Science in Space, p. 225: "The inner solar system has become one vast laboratory for the investigation of dilute plasmas, magnetic fields, hydromagnetic waves, and shock phenomena that cannot be scaled down properly for laboratory study."
While much has been learned in exploring this "vast laboratory" little or nothing has been added toward anticipating the outbreak of solar storms. Even the mass of data recovered from satellites and probes has failed to reveal a method for solar flare prediction.
The success of Geomagnetics Research in this regard would seem to indicate that the missing element in space science has been mathematical astronomy, in it's natural function as a coordinate space-time frame of reference. 1964 has been designated as "Year of the Quiet Sun" -- that is, it marks the low point in the approximate 11 year cycle of solar flares and sunspot activity.
The record shows that since the last high point in the solar cycle -- 1957-58 -- space operational successes have out-numbered failures in a yearly increasing ratio, even as the solar storms have been decreasing year by year in number and intensity.
When the solar cycle passes its low point and starts up again toward a peak of activity, the need for an organized system of solar flare prediction and evaluation will be so great that it can hardly be overestimated. The major space projects are being planned for operation in the years that follow the "Year of the Quiet Sun."
HOW -- AND WHY -- THE RESEARCH BEGAN
This research in space-time astrophysics, now incorporated in GMR, had its beginning in 1930 when two people -- a writer and an economist -- came together on the crest of a wave of frustration as to what makes the wheels of the world go round.
What is it (asked the economist) that sends stock market prices up, as in 1926-29, and down as in 1929-32? Why this perennial ebb and flow of prosperity to poverty and back?
What is it (asked the writer) that lies behind the changing waves of human motivation and desire, the molecular substance of literature and life itself?
Fully aware that many had gone this way before, only to return empty-handed, these two decided to try it on their own. They began by pooling such knowledge as both had garnered from education and experience. This included engineering, economics, and ten years in Wall Street, along with music, comparative philosophy, and ten years in journalism. At first, this appeared to be an irreducible mixture. One day, the concept cleared, to reveal a lucid hypothesis. Incorporating the older, indispensable factors of mathematical astronomy with the continuum of modern field physics had produced the GMR premise of a unified space-time astrophysics.
The first empirical evidence of its validity was demonstrated in an annual cyclic wave-structure, reflected in fluctuating human moods and motivations as the background of current trends (later developed into the space-time structure of history.) This discovery synchronized -- and concretized -- the Burr-Northrop research at Yale, which proved that changing magnetic field-forces affect all living things and beings.
The first astrophysical evidence came from radio interference (RFI.) From there the scope of the GMR premise and technique has expanded -- on the principle of the cognate hypothesis, where one set of evidence leads logically to another -- from radio in 1941 through four intervening areas to aerospace operational failures in 1957.
The most recent correlation to be established by GMR is in the occurrence of solar flares. While no method of flare prediction has yet been found through probes and satellites** GMR space disturbance forecasts have coincided with solar flares from their first recorded observations until now.
"Already, space officials are fretting about the possibility of giant solar flares occurring while astronauts are on their way to the moon. . . Such flares hurl out lethal quantities of radiation that could endanger the lives of space travellers." (Wall Street Journal, August 19/63)
Geomagnetic Research Outline - June '63
Brief Outline of the Broad, But Unified Scope of Geomagnetics Research, Inc.
Scientifically, we have re-forged the natural link -- broken by Aristotle -- between astronomy and physics. We have done this through the astronomical timing of field-force disturbances -- solar flares, geomagnetic storms, etc. -- thereby establishing an interplanetary space-time structure that is mathematically reliable.
Humanistically, we have demonstrated that man is not a mechanistic fragment in an incomprehensible universe, but an integral part of an orderly, evolutionary -- and revolutionary -- world system that can be followed with understanding and intelligent adaptability.
Historically, we have timed and evaluated -- in terms of human motivation, response, and the resultant upward and downward waves in advancing civilization -- the cyclic turning points in history as they form, and follow, an everchanging sequence and recurrence in the space-time structure, or continuum.
Philosophically, we have built the foundation for a new approach -- unattainable prior to the advent of nuclear and general space science -- to the problem of faith, belief, and confidence in the existence of a universal order that functions throughout what we know as observable phenomena and what we hope for as an image of reality, or truth.
This, in a few words, is the fourfold basis of our research and development.
At the practical level -- available for immediate use -- is the technique of predictability that has been applied with consistent reliability, for several years, to the field-force disturbances affecting space flight, and electronically-controlled operations in general. This applies particularly, at the moment, to the solar storms which constitute a radiation hazard in manned space flight, and which are found to correspond consistently -- over the years where records are available -- to certain GMR time warnings.
This coordinated discovery and development of what appears to be a unifying principle, capable of constructive application in several separate, but related areas of modern life -- from space flight to the printed page -- would seem to justify the financial, organizational support without which no discovery or endeavor can be integrated, presented, and put to use.

World and Economic Trends
Surely no stronger evidence could be adduced as to the validity of the space-time cyclic sequence relative to economic trends than from the world-wide response to the assassination of President Kennedy on Friday, November 22. An act of such untterable evil is commonly expected to spawn results of national and international fear, suspicion, and upheaval -- toppling thrones, crashing stock markets, riots and mass violence -- such as have followed similar tragedies within (for some of us) living memory.
But on this unforgettable occasion it was at once clear that no cataclysmic repercussions were developing. Friends and foes alike from every part of the world (with two notable exceptions, Red China and Red Cuba) gathered automatically, as if by magic, in a friendly, sorrowing group, unified as they could not have been by any other means imaginable today. The major world markets, after brief shock selling, quickly balanced out. The trend of world-wide confidence -- now heading toward its natural peak -- was barely interrupted. That this would be the case was indicated by the current dynamics of the space-time cyclic structure. The teleological image of the next few years, and beyond, stands unchanged by one of the greatest tragedies, to date, in American political history.
Solar and Geomagnetic Storms
Correlation of GMR forecasts with observed disturbance phenomena (and quiet periods) continues at a high synchronistic level. The New York Times (Nov.26/63; p. 42) headlined the "important discovery" on October 13 last of a scientist working in Antarctica. He found evidence of coincidence between what is known as a radio "whistler" and Navy radio reception interference. These odd noises are one of the many remaining mysteries of space, and heretofore have not been considered as interference factors, the report said.
Reference to the GMR correlation record for October shows, on the 13th, a storm forecast of d intensity (disturbed) preceded by an r signal on the 12th (sudden disturbance) and followed by a d+ on the 14th (severe disturbance.) Such a series frequently coincides with both solar and seismic phenomena. In this case, the reported results show major radio bursts and solar flares of 1+ importance on the 13th and 14th, earthquakes of 7 and 8¾ magnitude on the 12th and 13th.
Clearly, a storm of considerable intensity occurred, detected after the event by tuning in a "whistler" but clearly forecast by GMR weeks ahead of its probable impact.

A Memorandum to R. Daniels
To: R. Daniels
From : Muriel Hasbrouck
Subject : The basis and method of a discovery for timing in advance certain field phenomena called "magnetic storms" which, from twenty years cumulative evidence, are found to(a) to affect radio propagation and electrical power equipment, and (b) to coincide with the occurrence of solar flares , auroras , sunspots, earthquakes of magnitude 6 or over, volcanic eruptions, and missile launching failures.
That the solar system is not , as generally considered, a group of separate planetary bodies in orbit round the Sun, but that it is a unified working system with inter-related parts -- defined by modern physics as charged bodies with fields about them -- whose constant orbital motion is related to field-force changes within the system, directly observable within the field of the earth, and from the earth as the only available vantage point.
That within the field of the earth there exists a cyclic pattern of changing field-force, measurable according to the 360 degrees of the astronomical solar year, whose regular currents are deflected, or distorted, by the variable orbits of the planetary bodies. Field force disturbances, as evidenced in corresponding earth field phenomena, are found to coincide with these distortions in the field , which are predictable in terms of solar system harmonics.
NOTE : The above factor (2) differentiates the Hasbrouck forecasts from other attempts to correlate planetary cycles, in themselves, with earth field phenomena. Some few of these efforts have been notably successful in predicting radio disturbance periods through planetary relationships alone, but the further developments to other areas -- earthquakes, eruptions, missile launching failures -- has grown out of the linkage of reu of the concept with the unified field theory of physics, which appeared from the beginning to be the only possible rationale for the accuracy of results.
Here are some quotes from THE EVOLUTION OF PHYSICS to back this up:
p. 151 "Maxwell) "The electric and magnetic field, or in short the electromagnetic field is, in Maxwell's theory, something real. The electric field is produced by a changing magnetic field, quite quite independently... a magnetic field is produced by a changing electric field... The electromagnetic field once created exists, acts, and changes according to Maxwell's laws... All space is the scene of these laws."
p. 157 "In the new field language it is the description of the field between the charges, and not the charges themselves, which is essential for an understanding of their action."
p. 162 "All our experiments must be performed on earth; expressed scientifically, the earth is our co-ordinate system
p. 163 "We must have what we call some frame of reference, a mechanical scaffold, to be able to determine the positions of bodies... it becomes the co-ordinate system. (Our CS is the the Solar System; it is also our frame of reference... in which (as said on p.165 "the bodies move uniformly relative to it." And he goes on: "If we have two CS moving non-uniformly, relative to each other, then the laws of mechanics cannot be valid in both. "Good" co-ordinate systems, that is those for which the laws of mechanics are valid, we call inertial systems inertial systems.
The question as to whether an inertial system exists at all is still unsettled . But if there is one such system, then there is an infinite number of them. Every CS moving uniformly, relative to the initial one, is also an inertial OS.
Note: It seems to me this applies perfectly to our conception of the Solar System as the frame of reference, the fourfold force patcern as the inertial system, and the Sun, earth, and planets as OS moving uniformly relative to the sun as the central CS...
p. 171 "Our conclusions are generally valid , and can be summarized as follows:
"We know of no rule for finding an inertial system. Given one, however, we can find an infinite number, since all CS moving uniformly, relative to each other, are inertial systems if one of them is.
The time corresponding to an event is the same in all CS. But the co-ordinates and velocities are different, and changes according to the transformation laws... He goes on to say, on page 186, that the classical transformation laws dont work any more, the laws of relativity are the Lorenz transformation laws...
Well, our whole concept of what goes on in the field is a series of transformations -- change of position, of geometry, pattern, all relative to each other and to the whole...
p. 186 "All laws of nature are the same in all CS moving uniformly relative to each other"...
A Reply to Muriel Hasbrouck from Interference Consultants
Interference Consultants, Inc. 150 Causeway Street Boston 14, Massachusetts
March 3, 1964
Mrs. Muriel Hasbrouck 319 East 50th Street New York New York 10022
Dear Mrs. Hasbrouck:
I am very glad to give a brief summary of my relationship with you and with Geomagnetics Research, Inc. , in your attempts to present your work in a form which would be acceptable to modern science.
As consultant to several departments of the government in the field of electromagnetic compatibility. I am retained to investigate any and all disciplines which might have an effect on the malfunctioning of our space and weapon systems. In such capacity I am to take the position of amicus curi and not establish any conflict of interest by acquiring a permanent interest in any capability under investigation. This is my present position in regard to your work.
As far back as 1955, it was apparent that magnetic storms might have a deleterious effect on weapon system controls and that the characteristics and timing of these storms would have to be better understood. One of the aspects of this understanding would be to determine whether the time and duration of such storms could be forecast with any accuracy. A general beginning was made, in a study of this subject, by accumulating existing information on all methods of forecasting of "weather" phenomena; such as employed by Ricard of Santa Clara University, Tomaschek of Munich University, Nelson of RCA, The Farmer's Almanac, and others. Your method of forecasting earthquakes was called to my attention in the summer of 1960 and, in the beginning of 1961, I began to interview you.
After studying your work, for several months, I stated to you that I did not see where your earthquake data would generate any immediate acceptance and suggested that you attempt to correlate missile failures with magnetic storm activity.
This you did and presented such accurate correlations that several representatives of the government and its contractors contacted you for further details. Although your correlations were considered accurate, it was impossible, because of military classification and lack of information as to the actual causes of malfunctioning, to justify the funding of a research contract. To link the two together, I then suggested that a forecasting of "clear" days might justify some government funding. This, I understand, is presently under consideration but is meeting with the opposition of government physicists although lower echelons wish to proceed. As a result, I have had to become inactive in your behalf until such time as government interest warranted further investigation.
As I believe I have pointed out to you, several times, your ability to forecast natural phenomena is not unique as there have been in the past and are, at present, responsible people who are making practical applications every day in connection with their own work. Unfortunately, those of us who have become interested in your basic concepts have had to try and hurdle a scientific gap which is proving almost impossible under the present state of the art.
There seem to be two current procedures to follow; one is to continue accumulating correlations and interpretations until the state of the art catches up or, two; to try and bridge this gap by employing the services of qualified scientists who can translate your findings into the language which science will accept. As far as I am personally concerned, I have seen enough evidence of the practical results of your work and others, including the Russians, to believe that you can eventually make a very important recognized contribution to science. I hope the Russians do not get ahead of you. So keep trying, as I personally believe you have something of inestimable value to our national defense and to our space projects.
Very truly yours,
Letter to Seyour Tilson, July 1965
Mr. Seymour Tilson Associate Editor International Science and Technology 205 East 42nd Street, New York, N.Y. 10017
As we recalled over the telephone, yesterday, you have been good enough to comment favorably, in the past, on what you've heard of the discoveries and developments in this workshop. But until now, we have heard no ringing bell, no siren whistle, to announce that the time had come for serious investigation of our work. The time has come; here is the reason why:
It is reported in SCIENCE for June, 1965 (p. 1592) by Norman F •. Ness of Goddard Space Flight Center and John M. Wilcox, Space Science Laboratory, University of California, that "Observations of the interplanetary field by the IMP #1 have revealed a regular longitudinal sector structure in this field."
Science writer George Getze, in the Los Angeles Times of June 21, 1965, interprets the findings of the two scientists. "Their findings confirm the existence of a great spiral structure in the interplanetary magnetic field that extends out from the sun and which turns in tune with the sun's period of rotation. Like a gigantic lawn sprinkler sending streams of water spiralling over the ground, the sun's rotation sends waves of magnetism sweeping regularly past the earth. This data has shown the existence of four distinct spirals in the magnetic field. (Emphasis mine.) Recurring patterns of intensity have been detected in each spiral, and the spirals alternate in the direction of the magnetic force. As each spiral sweeps past the earth it seems to influence the activity within the earth's magnetic field, and also appears to affect the intensity of the cosmic ray bombardment of the earth. The four spiralling sectors are not equal in size, according to the scientists."
On August 6, 1964, we wrote you: "You've had considerable briefing on our work, but to recapitulate briefly: Twenty years before the Van Allen Belts and Solar Winds were located by the Explorers and Sputniks, we had worked out, and demonstrated, the existence of four forces constantly flowing and interacting through the interplanetary field."
These four "forces" have turned out to be the basis of a timing system through which (as you know) we are able to forecast the occurrence of field-force disturbance phenomena, from simple radio frequency interference (in 1941) to geomagnetic storms, solar flares, and radio bursts (since 1957.) Extensions of the four-way system have been applied (successfully) to the analysis and anticipation of changing trends in economic and world conditions. (See enclosed Interim Letters from our economic sector.) And there are clear indications, not yet fully developed, that the system is also applicable in the medical area known as bionics.
Apparently we have come upon a coordinated field structure in space-time dynamics within the solar system. The variations in the dynamic force-field patterns are measurable according to the principles of mathematical astronomy, via the Nautical Almanac. NOT astrology, once and for all! In our search for causality in space-time, it was advisable that we investigate, test -- and discard -- every known astrological theory. We can therefore state categorically that nowhere in that confused mass of half-knowledge is there a clue to the existence of the four basic space-time forces as we have defined, analyzed, and demonstrated their existence.
The point of the matter is that the GMR system of space-time dynamics works. It has worked from the day it was first applied to radio interference periods in 1941 (with C. N. Anderson of the Bell Telephone Laboratories) to the forecasts made in 1964 at the request of Dr. John Firor, Director of the High Altitude Observatory in Colorado, in which the correlating phenomena, taken from HAC and Geodetic Survey observations, included solar flares, radio bursts, geomagnetic storms, and major earthquakes. (See Record enclosed.)
The fact that Dr. Firor refuses to recognize the evidence of the GMR forecasts as worthy of investigation is beside the point. From the beginning, we have been subject to skepticism from people in his world. A four-way field-force pattern, we were told, was beyond all scientific reason; the accuracy of our forecasts (over 20 years) was due to "chance." But the evidence continued to pile up. Van Allen Belts and Solar Winds -- surprising the IGY people -- came along to support our general thesis of a unified space-time dynamics in the interplanetary field. But there has been no physical sign of the four forces until now, thanks to IMP, whose magical mechanics seem to have integrated our cognate hypothesis.
Here are a few of the many striking points of resemblance between the solar sector structure as defined by Wilcox and Ness in SCIENCE and the four-way patterns of space-time dynamics as we have developed, applied, and tried to understand them.
1. The primary link between the two discoveries is the fact that both deal with no more, and no less, than FOUR forces. The scientists define these forces as a sweeping four-arm spiral with the sun as its center, moving "in the plane of the ecliptic, and normal to the ecliptic."
GMR defines them as four separate, but interacting field-forces, of varying dynamic intensity (from A through B and C to D) which annually follow a regular and eccentric course along the plane of the ecliptic, relative to the sun's "apparent path" along the zodiac band as if seen from the earth, i.e., geocentrically.
2. The scientists state that the spiral forces in their sweeping action "influence the activity within the earth's magnetic field," and also "appear to affect the intensity of the cosmic ray bombardment of the earth."
The second reference here is to a phenomenon known as the Forbush Decrease. Every recorded occurrence of this phenomenon that we've been able to check has coincided with a GMR forecast of high intensity field disturbance. (For a typical example, see SCIENCE IN SPACE, page 269, in the chapter by J.A. Simpson on "Solar Modulation of Cosmic Radiation," showing a diagram for January 21-22, 1957. Both dates showed a GMR d+ forecast signal.)
3. The scientists refer to the interplanetary structure as sweeping past the earth once every 27 days. They associate this interval with the rotation period of the sun. GMR reveals (but does not try to explain) that the four forces in their regular, annual course come into a four-way conjunction with the earth's moon in orbit every 27 days. It is these conjunct points which set up a trigger action in the current field-disturbance pattern.
4. The scientists' broad reference to the effect of the spiralling forces on "the activity within the earth's magnetic field" can simply be set beside the 20 year GMR record of forecasts with coincident observed phenomena. This record fills two thick work-books on my shelf, and has been presented, in relevant sections, to many people presumed to be concerned -- from C.N. Anderson in 1941 to Dr. Firor in 1964, not forgetting NASA, the DOD, and several major aviation and space industrial outfits, all of whom dismissed the GMR premise as "metaphysical." The IMP -- a perfect name, under the circumstances! -- would now seem to have proved them all to be in error.

A Technique For The Prediction Of Space-Time Disturbance In Physical Fields
Dr. John W. Firor, Director High Altitude Observatory Boulder, Colorado

A TECHNIQUE FOR THE PREDICTION OF SPACE-TIME DISTURBANCE IN PHYSICAL FIELDS
Hypothesis, Method, and Potential
Many, if not all field-force disturbances can result from irregularities, or variations in the flow of field-force energies throughout the Solar System. The timing of such disturbances can be calculated from the astronomical Ephemeris, used in conjunction with a supplementary Ephemeris described below.
This hypothesis arises from random observation (1938-1940) of certain recurrent correlations between periods of radio blackout (and newsworthy sunspots) and the geocentric longitude of the Sun and any planet, or planets, in certain areas of the zodiacal belt (the apparent annual pathway of the Sun and planets as seen from the Earth.)
No reason for this coincidence could be found in any system of mathematical astronomy, ancient or modern. Theories of terrestrial "planetary influence" had previously been investigated in a general research, and discarded as untenable.
Any acceptable rationale for this hypothesis should start from field physics -- Faraday's lines of force in mutual interference, perhaps. But where lay any possible connection between field and Ephemeris?
This problem remained unsolved until the discovery was made in 1941 of what seemed to be a field superstructure within the Solar System -- an annual, four-wave pattern of regular, flowing streams or currents of field-force energy in varying potential. Tabulated from a 19th century version of early astronomical physics** these four streams or currents were found to provide a constant frame of reference, or coordinate system which, when combined with regular Ephemeris positions of planetary and lunar bodies, could be used to time and evaluate field-force disturbances as points of tension or perturbation within the Solar System field.
Until now, the physical reality of these four superstructure forces could only be inferred from the continuing accuracy, in several forecasting areas, which this concept made possible.
Recently, however, data transmitted by the IMP-1 satellite revealed the existence of a longitudinal sector structure in a four-arm spiral which appears to resemble the GMR field structure as utilized and visualized for 25 years. (See attached pages from Science, June 18, 1965.)
It can be seen from the above that while the GMR system of forecasting utilizes, as a working tool, the regular Ephemeris Tables of geocentric planetary and lunar motion, these figures are employed only in conjunction with a set of supplementary Tables of the geocentric annual sequence of motion of the four superstructure forces, tabulated in 1942.
These four streams of field-force are found to coincide at regular intervals with the Sun's apparent annual path along the ecliptic (the zodiacal belt) and at irregular, but calculable intervals with the planets and the Moon in their normal motion as tabulated in the regular Ephemeris.
Forecasts of field-force disturbance are worked out by timing and locating -- from both Ephemerides -- any conjunct points (in zodiacal degrees) that are simultaneously occupied by the Sun, a planet or planets, and by one or more of the superstructure forces which, in their annual motions, follow the regular zodiac pattern and can be calculated at all times.
It is these conjunct points in time and space which are found to indicate probable periods of primary field-force disturbance. A significant majority of these coincide with a single disturbance phenomenon, or inaugurate a series of secondary disturbances -- or both. The secondary forecasts, usually significant in close timing of coincident phenomena are activated (or "triggered") according to the relative passage of the Moon.
"Triggers" are calculated from the regular Ephemeris figures of the daily and hourly motion of the Moon. Field-force disturbances are frequently observed to coincide with the formation of geometrical, angular relationships (0°, 90°, 180°) between the Moon in motion and any primary conjunct points -- approaching, coincident, or past -- within an average range of two weeks to a month, either way, according to the field geometry of the period under study.
Differentiation of disturbance potential (d,d+,d++) between one forecast and another is deduced from the regularly changing qualities of wave formation in the field superstructure. The four streams of force, or energy, follow an annual course, lining up (literally, from the Earth) with the apparent paths of Sun and planets, but independent of either in their recurrent power potential.
Evaluation of intensity variation in the forecasts is therefore based neither on opinion nor on precedent; no two periods of time can ever be alike in all respects. It is based on the adaptation of a tradition in early physics, generally miscalled "the four elements" and symbolized by the names fire, water, air, and earth. From the beginning of science (which was astronomy) these four forces (or qualities, as defined by Plato) were regarded as the structural basis of cosmology.
As is usually the case with classic symbolism, the symbol tells the story more graphically than any semantic translation. The work of GMR is obviously dealingwith four different levels of dynamic energy, functioning in what is known today as the interplanetary field. The four superstructure forces are therefore represented in the forecasts as A,B,C,and D in four colors -- red, blue, yellow and green. (See enclosed work sheets.)
In order to simplify both calculation and notation of the forecasts -- rather than using the arc of ascension figures from the Nautical Almanac -- the familiar astronomical and zodiacal symbols are used to represent the Sun, Moon, planets, and the 12 thirty degree divisions of the solar year which, because of the precession of the equinoxes, no longer correspond to the appropriate constellations.
"The properties of electromagnetic radiation vary with frequency. For one thing, the radiation is put out in discrete little bundles called "quanta" and the energy content of one quantum of a particular radiation is in direct proportion to its frequency. As frequency goes up (and wavelength down) the radiation becomes more energetic, and can interact more thoroughly with matter."
No attempt is made to correlate, at this time, the GMR hypothesis and technique with current scientific theories. But among the many authorities that could be quoted in support -- from Faraday on, or back through Kepler to Sir Francis Bacon -- the above, written by MR Isaac Asimov on page 110 of his lay-reader-oriented book, Adding a Dimension (Doubleday, 1964) puts into a few words what the GMR research team, as creative trespassers, have come to visualize as the probable field fundamentals of the work. It seems probable that the forecasts involve electromagnetic radiation, in varying frequency. The quantum theory haunts the wave patterns of the field superstructure.
Prediction: Neither does GMR claim the ability to predict any specific phenomenon as certain to coincide, to the day and hour, with any forecast. (That would be sheer fortune-telling.) GMR does not predict, in particular, a solar flare, a geomagnetic storm, radio interference, a power failure, an earthquake, a volcanic eruption, or any other phenomenon commonly related to field-force disturbance. The GMR predictive technique is neither a crystal ball nor a push-button mechanism.
The forecasts are directed toward the timing and evaluation of periods of field-force disturbance which -- as the record shows -- tend to coincide with any one or more of the events, phenomena, or occurrences commonly associated with electromagnetic or other field perturbation. Research so far, limited as it has been, has produced a tentative system of classification relative to certain forecasts which has been reasonably good, but by no means perfect. This would seem to indicate that wide research, with technological cooperation and adequate data, could eventually create a system that would differentiate clearly between solar, seismic, and other probabilities of response to any given forecast of field-force disturbance.
Timing: GMR forecasts are timed (from the two Ephemerides) for the day on which the forecast formulation takes shape in the interplanetary field. Considerable research and development would be required to indicate, with greater objective assurance, the precise time at which the coincident phenomena might be observable. Several physicists, including Dr. Harlan T. Stetson in 1942, have commented that a discrepancy of 24 to 48 hours between the field forecast and the terrestrially observable event could only be considered a natural factor in dealing with a complex (and only partly understood) area such as the interplanetary field.

Letter to M. B. Hasbrouck from John Firor, High Altitude Observatory
Mr. M. B. Hasbrouck Director of Research Geomagnetics Research, Inc. 319 East 50th Street New York 22, New York
28 February 1964
Dear Mr. Hasbrouck:
Some time ago we received a memorandum from Geomagnetics Research, Inc. entitled "A Note on Solar Flare Prediction." This memorandum indicates that you believe you have achieved some degree of success in predicting some solar flares.
As you are of course aware, the subject of flare prediction is one receiving much attention from many research groups at the present time. Most of the efforts at detailed flare predictions that I am familiar with have not been at all successful.
Therefore I am at present inclined to treat any claims of successful predictions with considerable skepticism until they have been demonstrated. So far I have not seen a scheme demonstrated which is at all helpful in actual flare prediction.
I suspect that before too long some of the staff of the High Altitude Observatory will be called upon to comment on your flare predictions. At that time I would like to be in a position of having evaluated your method or results so that this comment can be made with accuracy. I wonder if you would be willing to help us make such an evaluation. What we need from you is either a detailed description of the method you use to make predictions so that we can make an independent run using this method or, as an alternative, we would need advance forecasts from you for a period of six months or more so that we could statistically study these forecasts.
The study of flares and of their prediction is an area of great practical importance and one in which new ideas and techniques are sorely needed. I hope that you have made progress in this area, and that your work will be of value in the coming years.

A Poem for Dr. John Firor
Doc John Firor He shut the door Right in the Hasbrouck's face, "No more, no more" He did implore, "Of cosmic time and space! I cannot think Beyond the brink Of gadgetry's good grace!" He couldn't think; He took to drink, Up in that lofty place. The reason? Well, I chose to tell My tale at a new pace. And so he fell Right down to hell, Along the cosmic trace.
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 Gannís 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 Gannís and are quite powerful, but are slightly different from Gannís, 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 1000ís 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 1920ís through the 1970ís, 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 20ís. 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 90ís 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 Gannís system of trading and market order. However, even further, Baumring rediscovered and elaborated the system of scientific cosmology at the root of Gannís Law of Vibration. There is absolutely no other Gann teaching that goes anywhere near as deep as Baumringís 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. Baumringís 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 100ís) of books required to develop the foundations needed to understand Gannís 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 ďNumerical AstrophysicsĒ 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 ďbest of the bestĒ 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 Gannís 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! Baumringís 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, ďIf you only are looking to make money, donít bother studying Gann, itís too difficult. Simply study swing trading systems, risk management and options strategies, and you can make all the money you want to make.Ē (Note: we have excellent books on these alternativesÖ) 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 Gannís 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.
