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.
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.
W.D. Gann Works
We stock the complete collection of the works of W.D. Gann.
His private courses represent the most important of all of his writings, and go into much greater detail than the public book series. Our 6 Volume set of Gann’s Collected Writings comes with supplementary rare source materials. The most reliable set of Gann’s unadulterated and most important work available.
Dr. Jerome Baumring
The work of Dr. Baumring is the core inspiration upon which this website is based. He is the only known modern person to have fully cracked the code of WD Gann’s complete system of trading. Baumring rediscovered and elaborated the system of scientific cosmology behind Gann’s Law of Vibration. A long and detailed course, equivalent to a PhD in Gann Analysis.
Latest ICE News & Newest ReleasesThe Most Current and Interesting News and Happenings at ICE plus our Newest Releases
New Institute of Cosmological Economics Website - Now Open!
The most exciting news we have to share is the release of our new website for the Institute of Cosmological Economics, www.cosmoeconomics.com. We have spent 10 years developing this website, and it represents a massive transformation from our old site, and business model, to our new platform.
The ICE platform is an educational environment and a community of like minded researchers with an interest in cycle theory, W. D. Gann, market forecasting, astronomical and solar physics, and much more. We have compiled the largest collection of resources and source works on the subjects of the Law of Vibration, technical analysis, and the scientific works that support them available anywhere online.
Our Book Categories present detailed introductions to our unique collection of subjects and collates a grouping of rare and unusual books that support each field of research. We publish hardcover reprints of all of our books, as well as electronic downloadable PDF books for many of our titles.
Our Online Forums create communities of fellow scholars and researchers specializing in general or focused research around various elements of Gann Theory or Cosmological Economics or one of our specific technical courses on these subjects.
We have free, open Public Forums, which anyone can join to engage in discussion and research, as well as Private Forums that accompany each of our specialized courses, where students can engage with the author in a classroom environment.
We welcome everyone to our new Institute and encourage you to become a Member for FREE, where you will receive 3 FREE PDF books picked from around 30 of the very best titles in our catalog. We strongly encourage everyone to try reading three of our PDF's, because we have provided a selection of the most interesting and original books we have, out of over 300 books in our catalog. Every one of these FREE ebooks is an excellent representation of the work in our field.
Of course, our most specialised and exclusive market books are not included on our free lists, but we do have a number of classic works from the Golden Age of Technical analysis, along with a dozen each of scientific and metaphysical books, which are considered to contain some the MOST important keys to Gann and the markets.
We figure that if you are willing to try reading a few books to see if they are interesting, we'd prefer for you to read OUR BEST books FIRST. We're not feeding you a list of second rate junk here, so do look carefully at the options. The scientific and metaphysical books are probably the more interesting and original on this list, since the most exclusive market books we can't give away for free, but there are still a handful of really good market books listed too.
If you end up wanting more books than are given for free, the others cost the price of a Starbucks or a Big Mac, and every book you buy (or get for free) on our site also gives you LIFETIME access to an Online Forum for each book, where all owners of that book can discuss it together, like a Lifetime Book Club or Research Group.
We figure that alone is worth a cup of coffee, even if you already have the book, or particularly if you love a book! You probably have no friends that you know who discuss these obscure subjects with you, so we will provide you with dozens of friends from across the globe with the same interest.
Also, if you join as a Member (for Free!) you will gain access to various Special Deep Discount Lists which include our high-end, professional market titles at 30% discounts or more! We continue to rotate these lists so that new things come up all the time, so the best idea is to become a Member and watch for a special deal on what you most want.
Before you leave, be sure to sign up for our Newsletters (in the navigation of the top right of the site) which will provide updated information, new articles, and special deals upon specialized subjects within our field. You can pick what is of most interest and ignore what is not for you. We'll keep you informed on our most important topics.
Books Now Available as PDF Downloads
One of the biggest developments of the new Institute of Cosmological Economics website is the ability to provide our collection of research reprints through PDF downloads. This has allowed us to dramatically slash our prices for prime source works, whilst also removing the need for international shipping at great cost. This will make research in this field more accessible to those outside of first world economies.
We will also be offering access to selected lists of these books as a Library Subscription service, where Members can pay for periods of access to sections of the entire catalog for more intensive research. We will be continually adding more and more titles from our library to the PDF download and Library system.
A Non-Technical Historical Introduction to Cosmological Economics
Cosmological Economics is an updated term for what W. D. Gann called the Law of Vibration. It is a system of knowledge that integrates the larger cycles and motions of the cosmos with the seemingly disconnected world of Man and his mind and creations. This theory poses that there is a symbiotic resonance or interaction between all elements of the Cosmos, and that there is scientific method of measuring and determining these relationships, thereby allowing one to discern patterns and potential causes.
When such causes or patterns are understood and calculated they can be used to forecast the trends and turns within the financial markets. The following introduction and history of Cosmological Economics will provide an entertaining overview of the subject, introducing the principle figures and theories upon which this field is based.
Our Top Graduate Level Course on Cosmological Economics and Gann's Law of Vibration
Dr. Lorrie Bennett's Law of Vibration Series Updates and Extends Dr. Baumring's Work
It was Dr. Lorrie Bennett who managed to next step up with a deeper level of teaching, expanding the complex work of Gann and Baumring, penetrating the veils and secrets hidden in Gann's work. Dr. Bennett was fortunate to have Baumring's Course Manuals, Lectures Notes and reference works for her two-decade-long study of the subject. And it is Dr. Bennett that we now have to thank for reviving the Baumring approach to Gann analysis and bringing it new life and new discoveries though her 4 Volume series on the Law of Vibration, our premier educational program here at the Institute of Cosmological Economics (ICE).

Our Latest Book Releases
The following books are the very newest releases by Cosmological Economics, the publishing imprint of the Institute of Cosmological Economics.
Trading with Selene's Chariot
Selene's Chariot stands out as our most practical trading course, containing a set of tools that are theoretically profound in their implications while being so simple and practical that a teenager could use them. The first of these tools projects the exact slope of the forthcoming trend from the point of the last high or low, in advance! Using a tool based upon celestial mechanics, it is able to determine, within bars of the new trend, the exact slope angle of any and every trend in any and every market. This is one of the most simple and mind-blowing principles we have ever seen. It also demonstrates, without question, that celestial mechanics control market trends.
Gann Science: The Periodic Table and the Law of Vibration
Eric Penicka's Gann Science takes us back to Gann's first published interview in The Ticker and Investment Digest, the piece from which Gann initially established his fame. Penicka approaches Gann's Theory from the principles discussed Gann's Ticker interview. Like Dr. Baumring and Dr. Bennett, Penicka explores the sciences and known references from Gann's time and reverse engineers a system of tools that may explain how Gann made some of his famous forecasts and allowed him one of the best trading records ever seen, 10,000% in 1 month. This exceptional record has inspired a line of curious investigators over the last century to explore this field, and Penicka is one who has found a possible solution to Gann's Law of Vibration as it relates to the Periodic Table of the Elements.
Dan Ferrera's famous Spirals of Growth & Decay, is the single most brilliant and mind blowing general principle behind all market order that we have seen. It provides a structural map of all market price swing action, generating a sequence of counts in the upward, growth, and downward, decay movements of the markets that are always consistent. It is most similar to Elliot Wave theory, though several quantum levels of precision beyond it, with wave values that are mathematically specific and count sequences which are limited to definitive counts without random extensions.
This mathematical precision removes all subjectivity from the analysis as there are no random variants, only the underlying mathematical sequence of growth and decay within the market itself. It generates limited set of predetermined counts that EVERY market sequences through on EVERY time frame. Spirals is a simple and exquisitely beautiful universal ordering principle that undeniably exists behind the structure of ALL markets. This is Dan Ferrera's Magnum Opus, his Life Work, done before his work on Gann, and still his most important research. If an academic produced this work, they would be nominated for a Nobel Prize in Economics. It's that good, even better!
Without a doubt this course is Daniel T. Ferrera's most unique and important published offering to the world of Market Forecasting and Analysis. Originally limited to only 50 copies, and 12 years in the making; The Spirals of Growth and Decay is what Dan considers to be the summation of his life's research, and the basis for all of the forecasting work that he does.
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.
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.
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.
