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.
Natural Architecture Editor's Foreword by Alexandre Rouhier
Translation Society Edition
About five or six years ago, a master of the work brought us a manuscript written in Latin, illustrated with singular geometric figures, and accompanied by plans of civil and religious edifices. It came, he told us, from a traditional and pure source. This work appeared to us to present considerable interest. It demonstrated not only that the geometric outlines and numbers derived from the regular partition of the sphere determine universal constructive rules (which our present epoch has entirely forgotten), but also that these rules could also serve for the spiritual perfection of man, his intellectual development, and the realization of his material well-being, all at the same time. We therefore thought it indispensable to publish it.
This is why we present, to those who may still be interested by these questions, the version of this manuscript in French, as close as possible,. We have meticulously respected the terminology and translated all the terms integrally, even though some of them appeared to us to be susceptible to criticism, discussion, or controversy. We believe, in fact, that this “Report by a Master of the Work” cannot be considered a “work of science and erudition” in the narrow sense in which it is understood in our times, but as the expression of an essentially realizing “companion doctrine,” transmitted by an author indifferent to those minutiae, quibbles, and philosophic subtleties that are not effectively constructive.
This doctrine is not new. It presided over the building of the most famous works of the ancients. We have thus thought it useful to illustrate the text of this book with symbolic engravings, reproducing the documents or monuments of times past, of many various lands and epochs. Each of them reveals certain constructive rules of the Master of the Work. They will thus contribute to proving their great antiquity and to demonstrating the universality of their applications, and will clarify a way of thinking whose marked synthetic and technical character can sometimes make its access difficult. We have chosen them from among many others, all just as demonstrative; the attentive reader will find many more of them when he studies the monuments of the epochs illustrated which still arouse admiration in modern times.
Moreover, this iconography has appeared to us to constitute an indispensable complement, and as it were a more material expression of the Author’s geometric designs, which themselves are expressions of the metaphysical principles from which they proceed.
Thus, we have wished to present this “Work” in a way analogous to that of the cathedrals of olden days. There, on the exterior and especially on the porches, the builders assembled a whole symbolic imagery, explicative of the edifice, while leaving the interior of the vessel naked of all ornamentation and rich in its geometric proportions alone, so favorable to meditation and creative of that atmosphere of sacred contemplation which facilitates access to the divine.
We have tried equally hard, logically, to realize the typographic construction of this book according to the proportions and numbers corresponding to the constructive rules that it teaches.
Appearing thus, with its uncommon theories, its strange figures, its recalling of old sciences considered as “ridiculous reveries” by some and “damned sciences” by others, this singular work risks appearing disconcerting or obscure to certain people... “You must open the book,” we remind them with Rabelais, “and painstakingly evaluate that which is inferred. Then you will know that the drug contained therein is of far different value than its container suggested.” We therefore beseech the reader to beware of a hasty or superficial examination and not to make his judgment until after having patiently and attentively studied this remarkable synthesis of the traditional sciences and arts, first in its entirety, then in its details.
For an easier beginning, we recommend first reading (p. xvi) the “Plan of the work” which was attached to the manuscript, then the analytical “Table of contents” that we have prepared, and finally (pp. 325 to 328) the Author’s “Conclusion.” The reader will then have an idea of the totality of the Work; it will guide him usefully throughout the exposition of an idea, which, to be brief, had to be expressed with more concision than the gravity of the subject, its extent, and the richness of its immediate conclusions deserved.
The device surrounding the mark (which is reproduced here) of Conrad Badius, the Genevan bookseller of the 16th century, serves us as a conclusion, because it illustrates perfectly the spirit and the value of this “Report”:
From the hollow dwellings, full of obscurity, God, through Time, draws out Truth.
It falls to you now, benevolent reader, to make the effort indispensable to the discovery of “this” Truth. It will then become “yours,” because it is a universal Truth.
 At the bottom of the pages where they are reproduced, we have attempted to draw the reader’s attention to their symbolic content, through short clarifying notes (marked with a small lozenge ♦ or a small square ■). These notes aim neither to be complete nor to exhaust the meaning of the engraving, but only to direct the reader’s mind to the correspondences existing between these illustrations and the Author’s theories. Certain figures have no commentary, not because their symbolism is too obvious or too well known to the adept, but because their explanation would lead to overly lengthy developments.
It is thus, using only this initial example, that the construction, dimensions, and ornamentation of the architectural porch of the title page contain, in the numbers and reciprocal ratios of the stones on the pediment, the entablature, the columns, and the 3 steps, an ensemble of numeric ratios which the informed reader will take pleasure in discovering; the number, for example, given by the stones of the 3 steps of the base, here replacing the 3 magical enclosures, are those of the architect’s just square: 3, 4, 5; the entablature symbolizes the constructive word ABRACADABRA; the stones of the columns, with or without the base, show the fundamental opposition of 18 and 15 which is that of the senary and quinary, etc...
 Obviously we do not count the narrow mediating belt formed by the ornamental line of the capitals, because it disappears in the ensemble of the geometric lines of the nave; nor the keystones of the vault. We call it a mediating belt, believing that whenever there is ornamentation there is mediation, because all ornaments (sculpture, painting, inscriptions) must be considered as magical in their essence, and because magic belongs to the intermediary World. The keystone of the ornate vault, point of departure of the broken arch, indicates a mediation between the Non-manifested and the totality of Manifestation; the capital may be considered as mediator between the curvilinear form of the ogive arch (representing universal Manifestation) and the straight form of the pillar (representing individual Manifestation).
 Just as, in Plato’s description, the temple of Poseidon is the center of the royal city of Atlantis, the “mediating diagram” of the Master of the Work (fig. 27) appears incontestably as the symbolic “omphalos” of this “Report,” and its proportions are those of the plan of the Atlantean sanctuary. If one reduces this temple to a width of 1 millimeter, the diameter of the royal City becomes equal to 10 English inches (the English inch, the only inch of which we speak, equals 0.0254 m.), which is precisely the length given by the Author to his mediating diagram, whose length is equal to 20 inches. (We recall that the King’s chamber in the Great Pyramid is 10 royal Egyptian cubits wide by 20 cubits long, and that the “flying book” in the vision of Zechariah [Zec. V, 2] is also 10 by 20 cubits.) This is the dimension of the mediating diagram, intended to be printed on a full page, which has led us to choose in-folio super royal paper as a format. The height of a leaf being 22 inches (0.559 m.), and its width 15 (0.381 m.), this format is directly linked to the Egyptian approximation of the number π, i.e. to 22 : 7 (= 22 : 22 – 15), as well as to important Kabalistic numbers.
The dimension of the characters chosen for printing is equally symbolic: those of the text are 24-point, those of the notes 18; this opposition, in the ratio of 4 to 3, represents the inferior generation which corresponds to the Worlds of individual Manifestation.
The typographical “justification” (length of lines) is 10 inches (0.254 m.); the typographical “height of the page” is 16 inches (0.406 m.); the dimension of the printed text are therefore, according to the Author’s terminology, those of a golden rectangle, while the mediating diagram is a silver rectangle. The oppositions of 3 and 2, and those of 11 and 8, to which the Master of the Work draws ceaseless attention, are reproduced between the width of a leaf and that of the justification on the one hand, and between the height of a leaf and the typographical “height of the page” on the other hand.
The blanks of the margins (exterior and interior) make 5 inches in total, while the blanks at the head and foot of the page together make 6 inches. Their union and their crucial opposition therefore again represents the union and opposition of the quinary and senary which one encounters in all the constructions of universal character; they are found in the frames of the mediating diagram.
We even wished to represent these so fertile mutations 5 ↔ 6 in the form of the “cross-references”; this is why the 5-pointed star, in the text, sends one to the 6-pointed star, in the notes, from the beginning of the work as far as the “geometric Tau” and the corresponding “Crucifixion,” which are the 80th and 81st images of the “Report.” Then these cross-references permutate, and the 6-pointed star of the text sends one to the 5-pointed star of the notes.
Just as the voyage of Pantagruel in search of the Holy Bottle is marked by 35 or 36 stages (see p. 269), the Author’s text is divided into 35 or 36 chapters, depending on whether one counts the conclusion, in the form of a flask or hermetic Vessel as a distinct chapter.
Moreover, the “Report” comprises 50 geometric figures and 22 plates. In the footnotes there are 7 small figures, of geometric character, not titled. The documentary illustration which we have added consists of 108 engravings and 7 geometrical designs, titled, placed so as to conform to the symbolism of the mediating diagram which has guided the construction of the book.
The footnotes are the Author’s, except where indicated to the contrary. Some, attached to the manuscript on separate leaves and without indication of placement, have been added in 12 “Appendices” to the end of the work.
Only 252 (= 36 × 7) (= 108 × 7 : 3) copies of the book have been printed, which required 63 (= 108 × 7 : 12) reams of paper.
All these numbers, their groupings, their oppositions (5 ↔ 6, 7 ↔ 12, 35 ↔ 36, 22 ↔ 50, 80 ↔ 81, 108 ↔ 7) have a symbolic value and present a traditional character; they are found in the laws of the regular partition of the sphere, whose value emerges clearly from the Author’s theories.
The indication of the place and date which precedes the signature of the Editor realizes, by its form and colors, a complementary opposition with the philosopher’s bottle on page 320, which confirms the mystical conclusion of the Master of the Work; this cup (or Grail) contains, moreover, a symbolic chronogram which yields important Taoist, Pythagorean, and Kabalistic numbers. Cinnabar (salt of sulfur and mercury) is part of the composition of the red ink used. The white of the paper, the black and red of the inks, are the colors of the philosopher’s Stone, which also indicates that this book is really, in all its degrees, the “Book of the Great Transmutation.”
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.
