Supported by the cosmological theory behind Gann’s work, we also specialize in practical tools needed to analyze and trade the markets.
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.
Ferrera Gann Textbook
The Path of Least Resistance, The Underlying Wisdom & Philosophy of W. D. Gann Elegantly Encoded in the Master Charts, by Daniel T. Ferrera.
A detailed comprehensive elaboration of W.D. Gann's most powerful trading tools. Gann's core mathematical and important geometrical techniques in his master calculators, angles and spiral charts.
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.
The stock and commodity markets have a history stretching over millennia, from the Bible to the present day, furnishing data on sun spots, planetary changes, weather cycles, volcanoes, earthquakes, solar variances, and other influences on financial markets.
Gann charted Wheat back to 65 BC and Baumring took this back to 1200 BC.
Science provides vital concepts for analyzing financial markets. Studies of momentum, moving averages, pattern formation, energy, speed, power, strength, impulse, gravity centers, electro-magnetism, solar phenomena, geomagnetic field influences, aether physics, vortex systems, vibration, and wave mechanics are of significant relevance.
Technical Analysis involves using technical tools and mathematical measurements in order to determine expected directional movements, reverses or changes in the market.
Advanced forms of this technique use mathematical and scientific or geometric tools to project market action or forecast future movement, looking at elements of price, time and trend.
Andy Pancholi of Cycles Analysis is a long time research partner, who produces cycle indications for ICE Reports and a monthly market forecasting newsletter, The Market Timing Report, which provides an ongoing monthly evaluation and forecast of the S&P 500, the Dollar, and Euro$, Crude Oil and Gold, highlighting turning points and important trade setups!
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.

Spirals Growth & Decay
The Spirals of Growth and Decay, Exposing the Underlying Structure of the Markets. By Daniel T. Ferrera 2005.
Utilizing deep concepts from nonlinear mathematics to mechanically describe the structure of price waves in financial market data, linking the ideas of shock, balance, instability, static and dynamic form in all trading markets.
Technical analysis requires sophisticated measurements and calculations, so good software tools save time and allow wider scope.
We have carefully selected software for market analysis, geared towards Gann, geometric, astronomical, cycles or other related topics that we most use, including pre-programmed Gann and Astro tools.
Options provide many very useful benefits, like locking in the limit of your risk, since you can never lose more than the cost of the option you purchase.
With the current volatility of the market and overnight trading, many traders are afraid to hold positions overnight, but options can give a safe way to hold open positions without fear of extreme volatility.
THE ARCHEOMETER: Key To All The Religions and Sciences of Antiquity; Synthetic Reformation of All Contemporary Arts.
The Archeometer was used by the Ancients for the esoteric Canon of ancient Art and Science in its various architectural, musical and scientific forms. A respected elaboration of a Universal System by a great 19th century esotericist.
Modern astronomy is a pale derivative of the true "logic of the cosmos", Astrology, the science of all-pervasive relationships between cosmos and man.
Early proponents of "astronomy" were ALL students of the Astrological arts, from Ptolemy, to Copernicus, Galileo, Kepler, Tyco Brahe, and Newton.
We have a selected collection of unusual books presenting alternative metaphysical concepts and mathematics, including conceptual approaches useful for financial forecasting or more esoteric cosmological theory.
Both WD Gann and Dr. Baumring used methods of calculating universal ordering processes focused upon methods of prediction.
Dr. Alexander Goulden
A Cambridge scholar who, intrigued by the challenge of Gann's esoteric work created a powerful set of technical tools based upon principles of Ancient Geometry, Celestial Mechanics, and Pythagorean Harmonics, which project Price, Time and Trend with exact precision.
