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.
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.
W.D. Gann Works
We stock the complete collection of the works of W.D. Gann.
His private courses represent the most important of all of his writings, and go into much greater detail than the public book series. Our 6 Volume set of Gann’s Collected Writings comes with supplementary rare source materials. The most reliable set of Gann’s unadulterated and most important work available.
Dr. Jerome Baumring
The work of Dr. Baumring is the core inspiration upon which this website is based. He is the only known modern person to have fully cracked the code of WD Gann’s complete system of trading. Baumring rediscovered and elaborated the system of scientific cosmology behind Gann’s Law of Vibration. A long and detailed course, equivalent to a PhD in Gann Analysis.
Cosmological Economics in Theory & Practice
Cosmological Economics Study Guide Index Research Roadmaps to Mastering Specialized Fields of Financial Market Theory & Applied Trading Practice
An Introduction to our Study Guides
Since professional market analysts are generally not scientists, they are often more interested in the usefulness of practical applications than the proof of some ultimate theory behind the financial markets. The fact is that for over 150 years, the financial and economic principles of technical analysis, cycle theory, market geometry, and Gann analysis have produced the best models, tools, and systems, as well as the most successful financial forecasts of any tradition out there.
Without considering what this means for scientific and cosmological theory, from a purely practical standpoint for investors and traders, Cosmological Economics provides the most valuable and practical tools for professional investors and traders engaged in navigating and trading the financial markets.
Not only does the Institute of Cosmological Economics possess the most complete collection of research materials dedicated to the advanced theoretical study of these subjects, but we also possess the very best collection of applied technical trading systems, practical analytical techniques, as well as market information, forecasts and reports valuable for investors and traders.
The following Study Guides will approach these subjects from a number of different perspectives which have been of greatest interest to our clientele over the 30+ years that we have been involved in publishing works and providing education and training for traders within these fields.
Who They’re For
Each section begins with a group of statements or questions that we have been asked by different types of students, traders, investors or analysts over the years, which would be best answered by that particular Study Guide. This is followed by an overview of the subject, leading to a list of books, courses or other materials which will help to outline a plan of research, study and practice to accomplish that particular purpose. Complete details of each book or course can be found by clicking that particular listing in each Study Guide.
The Most Pertinent and Applicable Materials
We have tried to limit the list of materials in each of these Study Guides to only absolutely most important materials, which we have organized by complexity and cost into intermediate and advanced categories. One need not begin with the simpler, introductory works, as the more advanced courses are generally more inclusive and provide a fuller education on the topic.
These Research Maps and Study Guides are meant to give some general direction and guidance to those who have little familiarity with this material. They take our extensive catalog and boil it down to very specific focuses, so we strongly recommend you take a careful look at this section since it can be of great help in guiding you through our vast resources to exactly the right material needed to accomplish your purpose.
Please always feel free to contact us with any questions you may have or for more specific information or recommendations to fit your particular needs. We are always here to help!
For those who possess a genuine desire to understand the scientific system behind the financial markets, or who are dedicated to “cracking” Gann’s Law of Vibration, this is the best, if not the only path for you. The study of Cosmological Economics delves directly into the study of natural science and mathematical order, seeking to uncover the underlying principles of causation that lie not only behind market phenomena, but behind all systems in nature, be they physical, biological or psychological.
Without cracking Gann’s entire system, there are still numerous interpretive works and applied techniques based upon various partial elements of Gann Theory by some of our most popular authors like Daniel Ferrera, Daniele Prandelli, and other well-known authors. Most traders and researchers are not concerned with understanding every inch and detail of Gann’s system, but are simply seeking practical techniques and tools that they can use for forecasting and trading the markets that will not require many years to understand and apply. We have the largest collection of these kinds of work.
Our large collection of works on Technical Analysis represent some of the very best books on the subject from the Golden Age of Technical Analysis. Almost all modern works and software are nothing but stripped down regurgitations these older and much greater works.
We have the largest collection of works on Financial Astrology or Astroeconomics in the world and publish many lost and little known works on the subject from the last 150 years. There is not an important work on the subject outside those classics in our catalog.
The cost of college has become simply insane, while the quality of its education continues to decline. Graduates are no longer even guaranteed a job, but instead are saddled with debt that takes half their life to pay off. All intelligent young people must ask if there is not a better option. There is! We can provide a better education, for a far cheaper price, that will pay for itself with a guaranteed job at the outcome. If you are a young person who identifies with the following statements, you may want to explore our educational programs as a college alternative.
The most common and repeated question we are asked both by newcomers to trading and old researchers is, “what course will lay out the fastest path to consistently making money through trading?” This Study Guide will answer that question for everyone. Over many years, we have developed very specific courses with exactly this intention in mind: to teach anyone to make consistent money trading.
The courses and services below focus upon intermediate term trading, looking to capture the longest and strongest swings or moves in any market. The time frame for Position Trading usually runs from at least a couple months, up to a year or more for longer swings. With this strategy, we are trading with the major trend. Gann said that the largest profits were made following major trends and capturing the large campaigns.
Swing trading was the technique that Gann himself first taught to all of his students. It is a mechanical process of trading each sequential swing in any market, using technical analysis to identify when the swings are topping or bottoming and changing directions. It teaches the mechanics of trading, the discipline of analysis and decision making, and the foundations of reading market swings and energy. This is considered to be the foundation for trading an individual market.
We have numerous analytical techniques and courses that work on any time frame from monthly to weekly to daily, all the way down to any intraday interval. Market are like fractals, so good technical analysis and market geometry will generally work just as well on any level. The courses in this category provide the most effective analytical tools for trading on intraday levels.
While longer term investors are generally not as engaged in complex financial research as traders tend to be, they still require some guidance as to what to expect in terms of the longer term cycles and trends of the market. We have a selection of works which specifically focus on a longer term, bigger picture perspective, creating cyclical models and trend indications for the long term market structure. We also have some informational resources that focus on the longer term perspective of the investor.
Risk Management is probably the most important principle required for successful trading, and the single most influential element in success vs. failure. Professional traders and managers all understand risk management, though some could learn it much better, but new traders usually tend to overlook this. Risk Management is THE KEY to successful trading and investing. Do not miss mastering this subject!
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.
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.
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.
