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.
Publications on financial market analysis, forecasting and trading which are available from the Institute of Cosmological Economics bookstore include works by Showcased Authors W D Gann, Dr. Jerome Baumring, Dr. Lorrie Bennett, Catalin Plapcianu, Eric Penicka, Muriel Hasbrouck, Daniel T. Ferrera, Gordon Roberts, Dr. Alexander Goulden, Daniele Prandelli, Timothy Walker and L. David Linsky. Most of the titles in the Showcased Authors category of the Bookstore of the Institute of Cosmological Economics are by modern, living authors, with expertise in specific fields of research, financial market analysis, trading or forecasting, being researchers, analysts and traders within the fields of Technical Analysis, Gann Theory or other areas of esoteric analysis, like financial astrology, Cosmological Economics market geometry, swing trading and financial forecasting. The value of these specialized courses is that they summarize or integrate long-term research and ongoing experimentation. These introductory and intermediate level courses will allow new researchers to quickly advance to levels that would otherwise take them many years to understand on their own. Other authors in this category are historical figures, some of whose work we exclusively own and represent, like that Dr. Jerome Baumring and Muriel & Louis Hasbrouck.
Cosmological Economics and Gann Analysis are subjects that are even more challenging than the most advanced forms of technical analysis, and are only learned through deep study, hard work and long experience trading. It is for this reason that expert financial analysts, senior researchers and successful financial market traders can assist new and inexperienced market traders in developing and refining their skill and expertise in a considerably shorter time and with far less effort than they could do it themselves.
The courses presented in the Showcased Authors section of the Bookstore offer this assistance, being the equivalent of semester length, university level courses in financial market analysis, forecasting and trading. No such courses are available in any university system. Financial analysis and trading are not taught in college; students of the markets must either be self-taught or must depend upon the knowledge and guidance of past and modern experts in the field.
The level of expertise and quality of each course is generally reflected by its price. The highest priced items in our catalog provide the most original and powerful insights, proprietary systems and tools for trading. Obviously, no professional is going to part with their proprietary knowledge without being adequately compensated, hence the requisite prices of these courses. Most of these courses are accompanied by a classroom-style Online Forum, where students have ongoing access to the author/teacher to ask questions and receive guidance on the material.
With this context outlined, let’s briefly review our group of Showcased Authors, identifying the specific focus and expertise of each, along with the goal of their particular teaching, starting with the most important and influential authors, and first of all with the great market master and grandfather of Cosmological Economics, W. D. Gann.
Financial market trader William Delbert Gann produced the greatest documented trading record in history back in his 1909 month of audited trading for The Ticker & Investment Digest. Gann’s vast and complex theory, the Law of Vibration, claims that the markets are controlled by subtle energetic forces of causation, which can be mathematically calculated and used to project turning points in the future with uncanny accuracy. W.D. Gann was a pioneer in the discipline of technical analysis and his work still offers insights for investors and traders.
Most of the authors showcased by the Institute of Cosmological Economics are either inspired by Gann, are directly decoding Gann, or like Gann are seeking to discover a scientific system of order and/or causation behind market phenomena. W. D. Gann’s work is scoured and analyzed in the most intricate detail in the search for clues to reveal the mechanics behind his system. The catalog of the Institute of Cosmological Economics has the largest collection of original Gann books, courses, tools, interpretations, techniques, systems and source works available anywhere in the world. The Showcased Authors represent the top experts in the field of Cosmological Economics and Gann Theory, and their work forms the core course material in our catalog.
Dr. Jerome Baumring is the foremost figure in our tradition, following Gann. Dr. Baumring studied the Gann system, leading to the development of his 1980’s course, Gann Harmony: The Law of Vibration. The Sacred Science Institute and Institute of Cosmological Economics websites are inspired by, and are the only authorized representatives of, the work of Dr. Jerome Baumring and his school, which we call Cosmological Economics. Most of the books available from the Institute of Cosmological Economics are the source works required for reference and research for Baumring’s Seminar Series. All of the most advanced Gann analysts who understand the Law of Vibration came to it through the work of Baumring.
Following in the Baumring tradition are researchers Dr. Lorrie Bennett and Catalin Plapcianu, who have probed deeply into Gann theory and are two of the most recent authors to join the Institute of Cosmological Economics.
Dr. Bennett integrates the range of natural and esoteric sciences into a synthesized field of knowledge approached from four different angles in her four volume Law of Vibration Series, which elucidate Gann’s system. First, she introduces the Patterns behind market formations showing how they are created by underlying wave mechanics. From there she deciphers Gann’s system of 13 Sacred Numbers showing how this master set controls the markets. Volume 3, Planets, will develop a new system of astrology based upon the Ancients that fills in the missing signals overlooked by most astrologers. And the final volume, Geometry, will synthesize these sciences in a geometric ordering system behind the market.
The work of Catalin Plapcianu seeks an underlying mechanism or engine behind the market, creating a model of structure and action that can be calculated as it rotates through multi-dimensional space/time (price/time). His three Volume series develops Gann’s Theory of the Squaring of Price and Time in 3-Dimensional space, each volume addressing one dimension of Price, Time and Price/Time respectively. Plapcianu translates his models into algorithms which he then programs into automated trading systems which are available through subscription Apps.
Eric Penicka, who, though not a student of Baumring, followed a similar path of research as Baumring and Dr. Lorrie Bennett did, developing a theory of the Law of Vibration as applied to the Periodic Table of Elements. Penicka presents a solution as to how Gann traded in his 1909 Ticker interview using principles of chemical elements and vibration, integrated with principles of harmonics. This fascinating work creates a chemical/harmonic matrix upon which market growth is structured and organized and merges atomic and music theory with the work of John Ernst Worrell Keely.
With regard to Gann Theory, Trading & Astrological Experts we will overview the Hasbrouck Archives first, since Muriel and Louis Hasbrouck are the only historical figures in this group, having worked back in the mid-20th century. Muriel Hasbrouck had deep associations with many of the great esoteric and market thinkers of her day, and desired to reform the field of “astrology” into a more scientific study of celestial mechanics and solar forces. Muriel and Louis Hasbrouck were pioneering researchers into the relationship between solar forces, space-time dynamics and the behavior of the financial markets.
Using ancient observations, Muriel Hasbrouck discovered a set of solar cycles which she called Solar Field Forces, which when analyzed in relationship with planetary positioning were responsible for producing disturbances in space weather, with resultant geomagnetic effects on Earth resulting in both geophysical and tectonic destabilization, as well as producing fluctuations in the mass psychology behind the financial markets. The Hasbrouck work presents cutting edge discoveries that are still new in the field of Solar science, astrophysics, economics, geology, weather, and more.
Daniel T. Ferrera is our most long-standing author, being the first new author we published after the Baumring material and reference works. A specialist in Gann Cyclical Theories, Dan Ferrera’s work is extremely popular both with new and seasoned traders due to its clear explanations and great practicality. Unlike the Baumring school, Ferrera is not so much trying to “crack Gann” as to understand and make use of his many practical technical analysis and cyclical tools. Ferrera has the mind of an engineer who deconstructs Gann’s technical tools, then rebuilds them even better, laying out the mechanics and logic of each technique and creating tools to make them more functional. Ferrera’s series of courses presents the equivalent of a master’s degree in Gann Analysis, and will save researchers many years of work. Ferrera’s series of trading courses both lay the foundations of trading for beginners while providing sophisticated analytical and forecasting tools for professionals. A top market forecaster and expert in market analysis, Daniel Ferrera produces a yearly Outlook, now in its second decade, which provides a forecast of the general stock market.
Gordon Roberts is a 20 year Gann student and trader who presents a simplified approach to Gann Analysis that anyone can understand and apply, stripping out the complexity to identify significant major and intermediate trade setups. He then presents an options trading methodology which allows maximum leverage with minimum risk to compound small capital into larger returns through Leveraged Position Trading. An excellent strategy for people with less time and money to trade.
Cambridge scholar Dr. Alexander Goulden specializes in the history of science and the integration of science and metaphysical principles of energy. Upon a challenge, he set out to explore the basis of Gann’s system, and then developed a new set of similarly derived technologies which complement Gann’s tools, but provide a secondary level of noncorrelated signals also based upon Pythagorean geometry, harmonics and celestial mechanics. His astrological research into the systems of the ancients has led to a revolutionary new work on AstroEconomics reviving lost techniques from the Ancient Wisdom with new applications to modern financial forecasting.
Daniele Prandelli is a pure trader through and through. As such, all his work and techniques are extremely practical and are tools that he uses for his day to day swing trading. If they do not apply, he does not use them. Prandelli has spent over a decade refining his trading methodology, and his two courses present the set of tools he has developed, a price-based tool based upon planetary harmonics, and a time-turn model based upon Gann’s cycle theory and modeling approach.
W. D. Gann initiated all his students into trading using a swing system with a set of simple and clear rules that any beginner could follow to develop a core skill in trading. However, Gann only presented his swing trading system briefly and it was not easy to understand. Timothy Walker collected 15 years of US Steel data from microfiche, then analyzed Gann’s swing trades from 1917-1932. He then breaks down the logic of every rule and presents with great clarity the detailed mechanics of Gann’s original swing trading system.
Sean Erikson spent 25 years as a professional trader and fund manager during which time he developed a set of astronomical and geometrical tools used for swing trading in any time frame from longer term to intraday. This astro-trading system supersedes all prior swing trading systems in terms of its effectiveness and applicability in the market, representing a quantum leap in trading technology.
L. David Linsky is a specialist in the long-term cycles of the Gold market. He discovered an unknown mathematical pattern which forecasts the past 40 years of Gold swings with a 95% accuracy. He then projects the future tops and bottoms of this pattern out through the end of the century. His research will allow investors to capture the long term upward and downward swings of the Gold market for decades to come.
History’s most intriguing financial analyst, forecaster and trader, W. D. Gann produced a 10,000% return with a 93% success rate in an audited 1909 interview. Gann said his market theory was based upon the Law of Vibration, leading scholars and analysts on a 100 year intellectual quest deep into theoretical physics, alternative science and esoteric philosophy, seeking to understand a cosmological ordering system linking the financial markets to the influences of natural science.
Our most popular author, Dan Ferrera is a master of making complicated ideas easy to apply. His 9 courses present KEY elements of Gann Theory & Technical Analysis including Time Cycles, the Square of 9, Periodicity, Price Structure, Swing Trading and Risk Management, providing advanced tools for the average trader. His popular Yearly Outlook provides a fascinating and accurate analysis of market action.
Dr. Lorrie Bennett is one of the only Gann experts to have cracked the Law of Vibration! After 20 years of grueling research she discovered a complex code in Gann's texts which led her to the full solution. Following in Baumring's footsteps, Dr. Bennett lays out the science behind the Law of Vibration in an intensive 4 Volume Advanced Series revealing the Patterns, Numbers, Planets & Geometry behind Gann's secret trading system.
Dr. Baumring is the only known person to have fully cracked W. D. Gann’s full Cosmological System! He reproduced Gann’s results, forecasting markets within 3 minutes of turning points. He extended Gann’s Law of Vibration into DNA Coding, Chaos Theory, & Topology, creating multi-dimensional, mathematical models of the markets, proving them to be a fully Deterministic System. The deepest Gann research sourcework ever compiled.
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 & Trend with exact precision. His 2nd course applies the Secrets of Ancient Astrology to forecast market turns & trends more accurately than the best works on Financial Astrology preceding it.
Cutting edge Space & Solar Researchers, Muriel & Louis Hasbrouck’s Space/Time Forecasting techniques are STILL more advanced than those of NASA or the current scientific community. The Hasbroucks produced 50 years of Market Forecasts with a 90% accuracy rate and were able to forecast Space Weather, Earthquakes & Geomagnetic Storms. Their advanced techniques develop a new Theory of Space Time Field Forces & Influence.
A penetrating researcher after Baumring’s lead into the core of Gann’s Cosmological System thru cracking Gann’s Squaring of Price & Time. Quantifies the mechanics of Gann’s innermost system demonstrating how markets move in multi-dimensional Space/Time. Includes new and sophisticated trading algorithms which generate 4000% annualized returns, mathematically proving the markets to be an Absolute Deterministic System.
Prandelli's work is very popular with swing traders due to the usefulness of his Gann tools which project Key Price Levels and Cyclical Turning Points. His courses present practical tools using Gann’s Planetary Longitude Lines and Master Time Cycle which combine with his KEY Risk Management & Trading Strategies to produce10-15% monthly returns consistently. His Yearly Forecast Bulletin provides his ongoing trading signals & strategy.
A profit generating Trading Strategy using Gann's best approach of Leveraged Position Trading to produce large profits from small capital using a powerful secret Options Strategy that maximizes profits through high leverage while greatly limiting risk exposure. Based upon Gann’s book, Profits In Commodities and the author's 20 years experience in Gann research and trading, this method is excellent for busy people with small capital.
A detailed exploration and analysis of W. D. Gann’s Mechanical Trading System illustrating Gann's trading strategy over a period of 15 years. Gann turned $3000 into $6 million over this period, producing a 1400% return in the first 8 months alone. This study provides the foundation that Gann required for ALL of his students before learning to forecast. These techniques still work today producing 570% return in the S&P in 2014 in 3 months!
A New Discovery of a Mathematical Pattern in the Gold Market which forecasts Gold's turns with an 85-95% accuracy over 40 years backtesting. A Scientific Proof of a Cyclical Pattern in the Gold Market which provides a 100 Year Forecast of Gold’s Major Tops & Bottoms and Bull & Bear Market Campaigns out to 2100. This insight will provide you with a series of highly profitable trades for the rest of your life!
Sean Erikson, a trader and fund manager with 25 years’ experience, provides a set of powerful astro-tools for advanced swing trading based upon celestial mechanics. The key tool uses an astronomical component which consistently and beautifully predicts the angle of attack or slope of a forthcoming trend. This is combined with a simple astro-timing tool which indicates the next 1-3 turns out and a geometrical price projection tool which provides the two most probable price projections for each move.
The solution to Gann's Law of Vibration from the 1909 Ticker Interview. Penicka analyzes Gann’s exact words correlating them with the cutting edge science of Gann’s day to develop a system which identifies the “mathematical points of force” behind all market action. The Periodic Table of Elements determines a system of order based upon atomic structure which generates a master number set for each market defining its structure in price and time.
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.
