Forex has become very popular, with trades not so limited by time and swings not as volatile as other commodities.
Forex is essentially a commodity, so its markets follow general commodity rules and many facets of Gann analysis work just fine for the Forex exchange.
We provide techniques, tools and systems particularly focused on the currency markets.
Position trading is an approach recommended by both Gann and Baumring, saying that there were maybe only about 4 good trades per year in any market. Markets would go into congestions of accumulation or distribution for years awaiting a new trend, and meanwhile one trades other markets. Gann taught the same principles on his higher level, saying that MOST money was always made in following a strong trend.
Among professional traders, risk management is understood to be the absolutely most fundamental element leading to successful trading, because with proper risk management one can use randomly generated signals and still trade successfully.
This is done by limiting one’s losses while letting one’s profits run.
Non-linear dynamic mathematics, known as Chaos Theory, seeks order in seeming random patterns, exploring subjects like Fractals, System Mechanics, Lorentz Attractors, and more.
Dr. Baumring originated the idea that Chaos theory provided insight into market phenomena, and later the great Mandelbrot tried to apply Chaos theory to the markets.

Eric Penicka: Gann Science
The author correlates Gann’s exact words to the science of Gann’s day to illustrate his phrase “stocks are like atoms”. Offering a system of “mathematical points of force” governing the structure through which the market moves, the emerging science of Periodic Table atomic elements provides a system of order through which to forecast.
W.D. Gann Works
We stock the complete collection of the works of W.D. Gann.
His private courses represent the most important of his writings, going into much greater detail than the public book series. Our 6 Volume set of Gann’s Collected Writings includes supplementary rare source materials, and is the most reliable compliation of Gann’s unadulterated vital work.
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.
Baumring found and elaborated the system of scientific cosmology at the root of Gann’s Law of Vibration.
There is no other Gann teaching that gets close to the depth of Baumring’s work.
Sean Erikson Celestial Mechanics & Ancient Geometry for the Contemporary Trader
About the Author and his Work
Sean Erikson is a former fund manager possessing over 25 years of experience in the research and application of accurate and profitable market forecasting tools led by his own approaches to stock market geometry. Having recently retired, Erikson now teaches advanced trend projecting techniques for traders and fund managers who are seeking a reliable, astro-trading strategy applicable to all markets.
He has presented a set of powerful trading tools used for advanced swing trading techniques based upon the principles of celestial mechanics and ancient geometry. The tools and techniques offered in his course Trading with Selene’s Chariot represent the culmination of a lifetime quest for the ideal astro-trading toolkit.
The core tool in his course provides the trader with the capacity to project the exact slope of the forthcoming trend from which a parallel channel is constructed to the angle of attack which will contain the entire movement of the ensuing trend. For a complete account of Sean’s life in the markets we encourage you to read his bio and introduction to Selene’s Chariot.
There’s a lot going on here, so to keep things clear, I’ve placed letters at the points I want to talk about, from A to H.
A: The yellow line is the bottom of the previous channel. When gold breaks through that, it’s a short. This is what we would have been studying this time last year, and the move was quite a nice one, running along the lower channel all the way to August, bringing us to the next letter.
B: There’s a special signal that happens which is very rare. It’s when the market breaks under a lower channel (or over an upper one), usually to tag an important price target before making a spike reversal. It’s an advanced technique, and not part of the bread-and-butter tools that I’d recommend to beginning traders, but if you’re quick you can really clean up in a short amount of time. I love this signal on index futures. You can see Gold drop down to hit the extended target (gray line) and bounce right back into the channel. 99 times out of 100 that grey line is the low of the move. Another fish-in-the-barrel trade happened after the sideways move as we bounced at the lower yellow channel line. I didn’t mark the location, so you have to look for it, but that particular long signal was about as easy as they come.
C: This yellow channel was a short one. Market ran up into price at the gray line at the same time as we had a time target in the pink rectangle (which is a little hard to see.)
D: The downward channel was really just a small correction, and two downward pointing channel lines lined up together to create support here. One came from the big channel at A, and the other came from C. There was another pink time target, which told us to watch out. To be honest, to go long here I’d want to look at the weeklies and see what was happening there first, but I’d have definitely done something to manage the short. As an aside, narrow channels usually mean short, quick moves, and wide channels usually mean long, drawn-out moves. With well-behaved markets, you can gauge the length of a particular leg by the width of a channel it finds itself in.
E: Now we’re definitely long.
F: That pink rectangle is a price target zone. Sometimes you get specific targets, and other times you get a zone. It won’t make any sense why at this point and is a side effect of something that isn’t shown on the chart. Notice that we’re bouncing up against the upper yellow channel line, right inside the rectangle. That’s at least a profit take, and probably a short.
G: Second chance to go short. Check out how that lower yellow channel line held the market up. We knew where that line was before the market even got there. J You had a 3rd short at the first bump up against the upper white channel just after the break, where you could have increased your size.
H: This was another small channel, off the retracement from the big move up that just happened. Target and channel break would have gotten us long again, with our initial stop just under the low at H.
Gann’s courses were generally categorized as either stock or commodity focused, but all principles taught for stock would equally apply to commodities. Stock traders who ignored Gann’s commodity courses could miss out on many important techniques.
Our Commodioty Trading material provides valuable techniques with a scientific approach to analysis.
Not everyone has the skill, experience or desire to make forecasts of market phenomena, so they turn to experts who provide information to help anticipate market trends.
Our top analysts provide forecasts or reports for different markets to help traders understand market action and get educational guidance with trading or investments.
We maintain the largest collection of secondary works on Gann Theory in the world, publishing many books written by top Gann experts and experienced Gann traders.
We continually review work by other Gann experts, filtering out the highest quality material for inclusion in our catalog in order to satisfy the needs of our demanding clientele.
Books on the psychological element of the markets and trading. These works cover both how markets are influenced by the psychology of the individuals behind them, as well as the actual psychology behind trading for the trader.
Baumring Financial List
Dr. Baumring compiled long reading lists even more comprehensive than Gann's, comprising works having key elements directly applicable to Gann Theory and Cosmological Economics.
Any student wanting to explore particular fields in depth will find Baumring’s lists to be indispensable, since they over important but unfamiliar topics.
Since Plato the principle of Aether, a subtle universal plenum filling space and responsible for propagating forces and energies, along with Earth, Air, Fire and Water, has been a core universal element.
Until the late 19th century, scientists, including Einstein, and most cosmological systems, incorporated the principle of Aether as being fundamental.
Natural Order has from ancient times looked deeply into principles of order behind nature and the universe, like phyllotaxis which governs the placement of leaves on plants, the harmonic ratios between the placement of the planets in the solar system, or the spirilic mathematics of galaxies.
Natural order reveals magical relationships in the natural world.
Space and time can be seen as the primary elements which define the container of existence in which we all function. In the financial markets we could say that Price and Time are the two primary elements which define market movement and structure.
Price is Space in the financial market cosmos, and Gann himself even referred to Space in market charts.
