There are two quite different sides to Gann analysis, the deeply theoretical, seeking to understand the essence of the science behind Gann’s market theory, the Law of Vibration, and the outright practical, looking for working tools and techniques that will help with applied trading. Though our greatest interest is in the cosmological theory behind Gann’s work, and the universe in general, we also specialize on the practical tools that traders need to specifically analyze and trade the markets. Some Gann experts excel at theory, while others are simply practical traders who are less focused on ideas in deference to trading techniques. This category will specifically focus upon the books and courses that provide very specific and applied tools from Gann’s toolbox used for real time trading. Some may explore deeper theoretical principles and some may just focus on pure trading tools, but this category will give working techniques to better fill the arsenal of any trader. We often recommend that new Gann students focus first on developing a practical trading ability, so that they can fund their future research with profits from their trades, and then also apply new insights from their theoretical study to their practical trading as they advance. This section will help to identify those most practical tools.
Dan Ferrera is one of the most respected market analysts and educators in the Gann field. For 20 years his works have been some of the most popular in our catalog. Aside from being one of the clearest interpreters of Gann, he also has produced his own advanced work, The Spirals of Growth & Decay, developed prior to his analysis and presentation of Gann’s theories. For those seeking a solid, Master’s Degree level education in technical Gann analysis, we cannot recommend anything more highly than Ferrera’s works.
Ferrera has written detailed course on every angle of Gann’s work and provides a fast track into a deep understanding of each field of Gann’s work as well as advanced topics in technical analysis. He has works on cycles analysis, Gann’s Square of 9, Gann’s Mass Pressure Charts, one on risk management and Gann’s swing trading system, another on the details of Gann’s complex geometrical and mathematical tools, one on astrological Bible interpretation, on teaching how to create yearly forecasts like his own yearly Outlooks, which give a prediction for each year, and more. If you are wanting to get a first taste of Gann and to save yourself years of hard work putting together his ideas, Ferrera is a perfect place to start, and walking through his series of fantastic is like getting a Master’s degree in Gann and technical analysis.
W.D. Gann Works
W. D. Gann’s private courses represent the most important of all of Gann’s writings, and go into much greater detail than his public book series, with which most people are only acquainted. They should be carefully studied in their full detail, as they contain the deepest insights into Gann’s theories ever presented. Stock traders must be sure to study all the commodity courses and vice versa, since Gann often put techniques that applied to all markets in only one or another course.
We stock the complete collection of the works of W.D. Gann, both his courses and books. Our set of Gann’s courses were initially collected and compiled by Dr. Baumring and Donald Mack in the 1980’s from dozens of original rare private course that were distributed by Gann throughout his career. Many people mistakenly think that Gann just wrote two courses called the Master Stock Course and Master Commodity Course. This couldn’t be further from the truth! Each of Gann’s “courses” were actually small, “sections” of a few pages to a few dozen pages, individually bound in paper folders. These various pieces were then compiled into different sets which he sold as various collections at different prices to different students over the decades. Some were more commonly sold to all students, while other were more secretive and sold only to close private students who often signed non-disclosure agreements, and paid exorbitantly high prices. It is these rarest pieces that make the difference between one collection and another.
The later courses Gann sold in the 1940’s and that he “called” the Master Courses were nothing but various compiled collections of these smaller pieces, and would vary according to who purchased them and what price they paid, and were never set until after Gann’s death when purchased by Ed Lambert. For instance, there are pieces that Gann advertised in the 1950’s as “new” like his Master Mathematical Formula for Market Predictions, or his rare #3 Master Time Factor Course which were never included in his “Master Courses”, and similarly were never included with any of the Lambert Gann courses sold by Lambert or the Jones’ from the 60’s until now. So these “master” courses are and have always been incomplete collections. Further, the Lambert Gann courses sold by Billy Jones through the turn of the century, were retyped and re-edited by Billy so that they did not provide the original unadulterated content that Gann produced, making them unreliable, edited versions. Our editions are exact facsimiles of the original copies sold by Gann, with no editing or adulteration of any kind.
Our 6 Volume set of Gann’s Collected Writings was further supplemented by new finds of rare pieces, like those mentioned above, rediscovered by the Institute over the past 30 years since Baumring’s death, and comprises the most complete and the only properly organized set of courses that are available. Gann has very particular sets that he sold only to his higher end clientele, placed in specific order to provide a particular logic to his work. Our collection maintains this order and includes a further collection of rare and historical courses, letters and private materials which make our collection the most complete and important collection available. Serious students of Gann should beware most “supposed” collections of Gann’s writings as most are unauthorized, incomplete, and distorted representations of his work, and cannot be trusted. Our set it the most reliable set of Gann’s unadulterated and most important work available…
While W.D. Gann’s own original work is a critical element for any Gann researcher’s collection, most people will find Gann’s work to be extremely vague, complicated and difficult to penetrate on their own. In our experience, it can take many years, if not decades for the ordinary analyst to, by themselves, digest and apply the deeper techniques of Gann’s, without significant help by well-seasoned analysts and traders who have dedicated years to decoding and creating practical tools from Gann’s techniques. This is why there is a fundamental and valuable secondary market of works presenting and developing Gann’s ideas, and making them accessible to any trader. We believe that the best teachers in this field are not competitors, but are fellow contributors to an ongoing field of research, and that their work is mutually supportive and will provide expanded insights when more material is understood.
We maintain the largest collection of secondary works on Gann Theory of anyone in the field. Many of these books we publish ourselves, and are written by top Gann experts and experienced Gann traders from across the world. However, we also review works written by other Gann experts across the field, and add to our catalog any material we consider to be of high quality and importance from the global community of Gann analysts. With our experience in the field, we are well qualified and to provide a peer review of these materials, so as to filter out the best quality work from that of a lower caliber, and then present these to our clientele who demand the highest standards. So any book or course that you find in this catalog can generally be considered to be of the upper echelon of works on Gann analysis. We have new authors submit their research to us ongoingly, so that we are always adding new items to our catalog with fresh insights, alternative techniques or new ideas. In this way we are able to save our clients significant wasted funds in exploring the territory at their own cost.
Introduction to The Archeometer
By Dr. Gérard Encausse (Papus) & The Friends of Saint-Yves
Saint-Yves d’Alveydre & his Work
An excellent writer, a sociologist of high caliber, a great historian, an orientalist possessing a complete command of Hebrew and Sanskrit, a remarkable musician: Saint-Yves d’Alveydre generously fulfilled all the requirements of Esotericism.
His initiatory path was always one of suffering and sacrifice. He was initiated into the Western tradition by the highest Centers, and into the tradition of the East by two of the highest dignitaries of the Brahmanic Church, one of whom was the Brahatma of the holy Centers of India. Like all the pupils of true Eastern initiation, he had all the notebooks from the lessons, and each page is countersigned by the Brahmin responsible for transmitting the holy Word.
Reading these notebooks requires profound knowledge, not only of Sanskrit and Hebrew (which the Brahmins of high initiatory degrees know in depth), but also of primitive languages whose adaptations are hieroglyphs and Chinese characters.
Besides knowledge of the Vedas, and consequently the holiest Mantras, the seven meanings of Sepher, and the Kabbalistic keys, the “Intellectual Master” held the true proof of his degree: the living key, permitting one to transform, in immediate application for man, art, and society, the knowledge that would otherwise constitute a mere encyclopedia of beautiful things, dead and frozen.
Beneath his fingers, the rhythms of ancient druidic songs took form, prodigious and disturbing; the secrets of the ancient Gothic forms of architecture and future buildings of iron and glass were voiced, translating the words of Christ and the angels of revelation into architectural language. And I could follow my argument through pages and pages without reaching the depths of this admirable science, which was so admirable simply because it was living, and which was living simply because it had its source in the Principle of Love.
Writers and artists were touched by Saint-Yves’s poetic works: the Lyrical Testament, now lost, his various poems to the Queen of England and the sovereigns of Russia, and above all his magnificent Victorious Joan of Arc, which we cannot recommend too highly to artists worthy of the name.
As a sociologist, Saint-Yves dedicated the greater part of his life to the defense and diffusion of a certain form of social organization: Synarchy.
Synarchy is by no means a new social movement. It was in operation in humanity thousands of years ago. The 900 pages of Saint Yves’s Mission of the Jews are devoted to demonstrating this thesis throughout universal history.
The Mission of the Sovereigns and True France demonstrate how immediate progress will be achieved by the application of Synarchy to our current social forms in all countries.
An immense misfortune struck Saint-Yves suddenly. The companion to whom he had devoted his entire life was taken by merciless death, despite Saint-Yves’s sleepless nights and months of struggle. At this moment he revealed himself as a husband worthy of his name and title, in the Christian sense of the term.
This death, which could have destroyed everything, saved everything. From the deepest despair, the voice of the dear departed resonated, and from then on, as an angel from on high, she accompanied all the efforts of the poor exile here below.
Under the direction and inspiration of the departed, new works of an entirely new character were born: the Archeometer and its applications came to see the light of day.
What is the Archeometer?
The Archeometer is the instrument used by the Ancients for the formation of the esoteric myths of all religions. It is the canon of ancient Art in its various architectural, musical, poetic, and theogonic manifestations. It is the Heaven that speaks: every star, every constellation becomes a letter or a phrase, or a divine name lighting the ancient traditions of all peoples with a new day.
Saint-Yves applied Archeometric keys to a new translation of the Genesis of Moses, in a work that is sadly little known: The Theogony of the Patriarchs. Together with the Vulgate, Fabre d’Olivet’s translation, and other earlier attempts, this new adaptation of the words of Moses in Saint-Yves’s rhythmic prose is of greatest interest to the members of all the Churches of Christianity, pastoral or secular.
Over time, Saint-Yves, initiated directly by the Hindu Brahmans, wrote his Mission of India, in which the question of the “Mahatma” is resolved definitively and clearly. His “friends” have reverently reprinted this work, of which all but one example had been destroyed.
Thus, here is a subject of study for future critics, or rather, many subjects, and we do not know what posterity will find most striking: the author’s immense erudition, his style as personal as it is brilliant, or the exalted revelations of the initiate and historian.
A Note by the friend's of Saint Yves d’Alveydre
Barely two years have passed since our venerable master, quitting the visible world, passed through the Gate of Souls to be united forever in the divine Word with that angelic soul who, although invisible, was always his support and his life here below.
The passing of this brilliant genius caused a number of his disciples to come forward from all sides, and we can only be happy that some of these converts of yesteryear, with a little too much neophyte zeal, attempted to persuade themselves and others that they were truly the depositories of the Master’s highest confidences and his most intimate thoughts. Needless to say, they all had complete possession of the Archeometer, whose exact description, which we have from the very hand of its Inventor, has heretofore been entirely unpublished.
Some have not hesitated to give Qabbalistic interpretations to this Instrument of interpretation. Others, who do not blush in claiming knowledge of the utmost secrets of Archeometric Science, promise grandiose and phantasmagoric Initiations which, thank God, will never exist except in their impetuous imaginations. Finally, others, all the while invoking Saint-Yves’s name, serve up lucubrations to their readers exhibiting an anticlericalism and antipapism that is truly far too rudimentary and juvenile, worthy at best of an electoral village subcommittee or a lodge of the tenth order of the Grand Orient of France. During the Master’s lifetime, such writings would have gotten their authors pilloried for the use of even one of those stinging words of which he had the secret.
Among those spirits who read and appreciated Saint-Yves sincerely, some may have wondered why his Friends have shown so little enthusiasm in defending his memory. The reason for this is simple. A being such as himself, whose passing we can never lament enough, does not need to be defended; although dead on Earth, he is powerful enough to defend himself alone, having left behind enough unpublished works to close the mouths of all imposters. The work we publish today is a resounding proof of this. Its hour has come, the hour desired and chosen by the Master, and like a thunderclap, it drowns out all the nonsense produced under his name in the last two years.
This book, the complement and final seal to the Missions, is the true Introduction to the Study of the Archeometer. Never, in any of his previous works, did Saint-Yves reveal the foundation of his innermost thoughts as much as he does here; never, in any other work, did he scrutinize the Mysteries so boldly; and never has he revealed himself so completely as in this work.
He is no longer merely the Christian genius, the inspired reformer of the Synarchy that we will rediscover; he is the true successor of the ancient Nabis, the last Prophet. A terrible flame burns in the work of this modern Isaiah, every bit as severe for contemporary Pharisees and Scribes as was the son of Amos for the scholars and priests of Judah. Equally terrifying are his visions regarding the future of France and Europe, today fallen back into the worst of Pagan Anarchy; many, alas, have already been fulfilled, while others are on their way to being accomplished. Indeed, had we not heard the reading of these prophecies from the very mouth of the Master more than seven years ago, beside the infinite Sea that gave them, if possible, even more breadth and majesty, we might have believed them to have been written after the fact.
But as he points to the catastrophes imminent for peoples subject to the unrelenting Laws of historical Cycles, his heart bleeds before this Fate, which seems inevitable, but which might still not happen. And he adjures his human brothers to abandon the false path and follow the true Path, which he has already shown them for twenty years, and which he shows them still. He beseeches them, finally, to give a true testing to the only means that can still oppose Fate and save Humanity. And in this he is a true man, a man to whom “nothing human is alien,” and this is not the least of his entitlements to our veneration and our deepest affection.
As indicated by certain allusions to contemporary events, the work we offer to the public today was written around 1903. We reverently gathered scattered notes and complete sections, and in this we wished to be strictly nothing but the simple organizers. Of this we forewarn the reader, who will then understand why we had to place one fragment, written in a completely different manner and style from the rest of the work, in an appendix. We have preserved and published this incomplete fragment with the conviction that it will be read with pleasure by all those who have known the Master and visited him; for there they will find him complete with all that fine irony, effervescent spirit, and exquisite mixture of Attic and Gallic wit which lent so much charm, originality, and occasional surprises to his most elevated and serious conversations.
As for the form and division of the work, we need not discuss it; it is clear enough, especially now that plates from the Archeometer have been circulated and reproduced far and wide.
Dr. Goulden takes a different approach to market analysis than most normal traders and educators. As a Cambridge educated scholar, Goulden is interested in deep principles and in exploring the foundations and implications of both trading techniques and the systems behind them. Before he was ever interested in the markets, he was asked by a friend why Gann’s tools and system are considered to be based upon metaphysical principles. He found this question intriguing and engaged in deep research in the field to answer this question. In this process he recreated a new set of tools based upon principles of Ancient Geometry and Celestial Mechanics. His tools are taken from the same sources as Gann’s and are quite powerful, but are slightly different from Gann’s, so that traders often use them as non-correlated cross-confirmation tools giving similar technical indications but from different perspectives.
His work is deep and has many layers of application and exploration that can be derived from it. His latest work on financial astrology, The Secrets of the Chronocrators, looks back to the astrological and astronomical systems of the ancients, reviving the more mathematical and technical astrology of the Great Masters of the medieval and prior times. Exploring principles like Spherical Astronomy and subtle movements of the Solar System, it seeks to develop a more advanced and scientific system of astrology determination as distinguished from the simpler forms that are generally known. It represents a new movement to re-explore the deeper scientific systems of the ancients that were lost in the press towards the development of a purely mechanical science.
Goulden is a superb educator and the most active Forum moderator that we have seen, with each of his Forums for his courses having 1000’s of posts with detailed questions and answers, deviling deeply into further and new fields of research beyond what is presented in his courses. His Online Forums serve as an advanced classroom where the details of his theories are discussed and elaborated and where students share their research and work with each other while overseen by Goulden, who continually presents new ideas and suggestions.
Hasbrouck Space and Time
One of our great historical discoveries is the Hasbrouck Space-Time Archives, a collection of rare research materials and forecast letters lost for over 30 years. This research develops a new theory of market influence based upon Solar Field Force Theory that was developed during the birth of the space age. The Hasbroucks were deeply connected to the esoteric and financial market communities from the 1920’s through the 1970’s, and contributed a new and recontextualized presentation of information taken from older original esoteric sources. They present a new field of study of solar phenomena, space weather prediction, earthquake prediction and market forecasting.
Muriel Hasbrouck was the inspiring force behind the research, which a foundation in Theosophy and trained as a classical pianist, she pursued an interest in original source works in astrology, through the turn of the 19th century into the early 20’s. She studies with greats like Walter Russell, Paul Foster Case, Aleister Crowley, and Israel Regardie within the esoteric fields. In the market realms she was close with many of the great analysts of her day like Edson Gould, Edward Dewey, Hamilton Bolton, SA Nelson, and more. She and her husband Louis produced a well-received forecasting letter for 30 years called Space Time Forecasting of Economic Trends, and are now quite famous for forecasting the exponential bull market of the 90’s and subsequent crash 50 years in advance! Their theories of Solar influence upon human and earthly experience through geomagnetic influences still lie at the cutting edge of scientific speculation.
Dr. Jerome Baumring
The work of Dr. Baumring is the core inspiration upon which this entire website is based. Baumring is the only known modern person to have cracked the code behind WD Gann’s system of trading and market order. However, even further, Baumring rediscovered and elaborated the system of scientific cosmology at the root of Gann’s Law of Vibration. There is absolutely no other Gann teaching that goes anywhere near as deep as Baumring’s work, or that even so much as attempts to approach the core ideas developed by Baumring. This study is for those who are interested in the mysteries behind the markets and the ordering system behind the universe itself. This is the study of cosmological theory on its deepest level, and of the interaction between man and the cosmos in which he lives, explored through an examination of causation and propagation of forces in the financial markets.
Dr. Baumring’s course program is not easy, and should not be approached without the willingness to commit at least a few years to the study. It is a long and detailed course, requiring the equivalent level of research and difficulty as most PhD programs, but in the field of Gann Analysis, which is not taught at any university. It requires many years of challenging work including the reading of many dozens (if not 100’s) of books required to develop the foundations needed to understand Gann’s approach to the markets. It is a very serious study that should only be approached by those willing to dedicate themselves to intense thinking and vast research across many fields of knowledge including: astronomy, biology, physics, finance, cycles, wave mechanics, geometry, mathematics, astrology, numerology, number theory, numerous esoteric and alternative scientific theories, and much, much more. Baumring summarized his system by the term “Numerical Astrophysics” in an attempt to give a modern name to an ancient theory that Gann himself had discovered.
Of all the analysts and traders we have known, the most advanced have all come to their understanding through following the lead of Dr. Baumring, or through having gone through a similar and parallel study and path of research to his. His teachings represent the “best of the best” of all material on Gann publicly available, but it will not give up its secrets to a mere superficial perusal. Baumring does not spell out simple explanations of how Gann’s techniques work, but rather leads his students into the depth of the science behind the system, while slowly elaborating how the techniques build upon this deeper science. For those seeking a fast path to the application of Gann exoteric trading principles, this is NOT it! Baumring’s work is not merely some market trading program, and indeed if approached this way may be found to be dissatisfactory.
Baumring himself often said to his students, “If you only are looking to make money, don’t bother studying Gann, it’s too difficult. Simply study swing trading systems, risk management and options strategies, and you can make all the money you want to make.” (Note: we have excellent books on these alternatives…) There are much easier and more direct methods to learn to effectively trade the markets than studying Gann. Those in more of a hurry to apply Gann’s work to trading may want to begin with the work of Ferrera or one of our most applied analysts, like Prandelli or Gordon Roberts, and save the Baumring work for a later time to explore at your leisure.
