Keys to Successful Speculation by Daniel T. Ferrera is an applied technical trading system using the essentials of risk management with Gann based swing trading.
This course has everything a trader needs to go from "0" to being a successful trader, including account management, risk management, trading strategy, entry & exit signals.
Approaches to trading begin with choice of a time window.
Day or intraday trading focuses on short term swings, generally not holding positions overnight.
Although Gann, trading before the electroinc age, did not favor short term trading, his techniques do work on this level, since similar patterns exist on every time frame whether very small or very large.
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.
In the 1940’s Gann published a Recommended Reading list of about 90 books, each containing an essential part his system, which he sold to his students.
n the 1980’s Dr. Baumring compiled about 70 of these titles, and we have collected the remainder, providing the only complete set available.
We strongly recommend these works to all Gann students.
Systems of numerology date back to ancient Egypt, India and Israel. Hebrew number science, Gematria, was woven through the sacred texts of Semitic religion.
Plato used numerical codes in his works, and Thomas Taylor elaborated the advanced systems of Pythagoras in his "Theoretic Arithemetic of the Pythagoreans".
Harmonics and Music
The science of harmonics is one of the most important subjects in the esoteric and scientific traditions, positing that harmonic relationships of vibration govern the structure of the universe.
W.D. Gann called his system of market order the "Law of Vibration", and used principles of harmonics and vibration to predict trends in the financial markets.
In ancient times science and philosophy were interwoven, such as in the ideas of Pythagoras, Plato, Aristotle, the Alchemists.
Philosophy is at the root of human knowledge, and we specialise in systems of thought and ideology, particularly concentrated upon alternative and classical works.
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.
The Gann Ellipse A Geometrical Trading Tool with 3 Ellipse Manuals
Derived from the work of Dr. Jerome Baumring & George Bayer
Recently we uncovered a cache of the rarest of materials including a set of ellipses from Gann’s personal collection, with replicas of Bayer’s two ellipses, along with a third which is an integration of the prior two creating an analytical tool that takes ellipse research into another dimension. Interestingly, Figure 4 below, from Hans Kayser's Textbook of Harmonics, directly correlates with the third ellipse from the Gann collection, which further leads us to believe that the Kayser work outlines an interconnectedness between Gann’s spiral calculators, Law of Vibration, and numerical squares, as well as demonstrating that the ellipse theories are an inherent and essential part of this same harmonic ordering system.
Gann himself never mentioned ellipses, yet Dr. Baumring was convinced that they were an integral key to his system, both from the perspective of elliptical cycles and their astronomical correspondences, and as geometric instruments measuring the market’s rotation into the z-plane of three-dimensional space. Kayser, we feel, provides the key to the correlation of these complex theories, and the extension of their application to the third-dimension, and beyond to the fourth and fifth dimensions.
Along with these Gann Ellipses, we acquired a collection of the rarest books from Gann’s Recommended Reading List, for which we had been searching over 20 years, and others for 30 years before us. Most of you are aware that there have been about 15 books from Gann’s famous list which have remained undiscovered, but with our recent release, 10 of them are now available, leaving only about 5 more elusive titles to dig up. We would like to put some serious attention upon finding these last 5 books, so that the Gann List is finally complete, and we encourage anyone with any of the rarest titles (email us if you’re not sure what they are), to contact us and help us complete this list, which we’ll make available to everyone. Hopefully this will inspire some new thought and insights within the Gann community as it has done for our research teams who have had a first look at this material.
It is so fascinating to have an opportunity to access these rare books, and we’ve learned a number of things about the astrological community of that time. One author from the Gann list, Gregorius, whose book The Master Key of Destiny we uncovered, we’ve now learned was another financial astrologer, for in his 1924 book it mentions that
“This service includes: Semi-Annual Stock, Bond and General Market Forecasts $250; Grain & Wheat Futures: A Reliable Guide to Fluctuations Of the Domestic Grain Market $250; Mundane Forecasts Giving Accurate Outlines of the Fluctuations to be Expected in International Trade, Finance & Events $250.”
And $250 is a pretty weighty price tag for 1924, reminding me of Gann’s $5000 price tag for his courses in the 1940’s. Fred White was editor of the journal The Adept, which both Johndro and Professor Weston, author of Forecasting the NY Stock Market contributed to. Sunspots & Weather is one of the absolutely rarest pieces we’ve ever found, more like a pamphlet, but loaded. We’ve finally finished off all the missing Raphael volumes, found some more Johndro and Bayer articles, and the Paul Choisnard works are another super rare treat. So this has really been one of the most exciting finds we’ve seen.
Details About the Gann Ellipse
What is particularly interesting about these ellipses is their connection to the ellipse work of George Bayer. Bayer is the primary source of most ideas regarding ellipses, and we know many people who have studied Bayer's ellipses for many years now, and there is a general consensus that something is missing which is essential for their proper understanding and use. What is interesting about the materials that have come into our possession is that that the first two of the three ellipses from the Gann collection are directly related to the Bayer Ellipses, which begs the very interesting question of just how well Gann and Bayer knew each other, if at all. One of our sources confirmed to us that he had seen evidence that Gann and Bayer simultaneously held anonymous memberships on the CBOT in 1936. The secretary of the exchange in 1936 possessed a log of memberships which included the hand-written names, addresses and phone numbers of both Gann and Bayer, and he remembered their meeting on the exchange. Sadly, with the death of this individual, these records have been lost, so we are unable to obtain any physical proof of these facts, so this information remains hearsay, but it is still worth consideration. However, these ellipses open up an entirely new can of worms, and potentially unveil a previously unknown connection between Gann & Bayer.
You may have noticed that I refer mainly to the Gann Ellipse in the singular. This is because it is the third ellipse that is the one that is utterly fascinating and essential. There can be little doubt that this tool most likely represents the intended solution posed by Bayer's incomplete ellipse work. It is a very interesting combination of the other ellipses with precise and specific angles, dots and alignments which are the essence of the application of this tool. Our preliminary speculations regarding it's use lead us to believe that it is possibly meant to be applied with the Square of Nine, and with the Master Mathematical Formula For Market Predictions, Price Time Trend Overlays, as well as a geometric measuring tool to be used on charts. It's most probable scientific correlations are to three dimensional market rotations into the Z-Plane, and to celestial mechanics as a measurement tool of some kind for the Solar System.
Included with the Gann Ellipse, are 3 reference manuals which include all pertinent information on ellipses extracted from numerous book such as those of George Bayer, the Baumring Seminars, Patterns In Space, and numerous other books in our library, giving everyone the most complete collection of reference material on ellipses and their applications to markets that has ever been available.
Private Gann Ellipse Research Salon
We have set up a Private Gann Ellipse Research Salon for purchasers of one of the packages where everyone will be able to communicate ideas, insights and applications about the ellipses, creating a group research team to unravel the meaning and application of this tool as quickly as possible.
Further Books Included with The Ellipse Package
In the process of doing our research, we discovered that the owner of the ellipses also had many other rare items that all of us would be very interested in, so I arranged with him to expand the package beyond what I initially mentioned to everyone several months ago. In order to make this package more attractive to a wider group, and to make up for the lack of instructions to go with the ellipses, it will include, along with the ellipse material, a selection of twenty-one further extremely rare and important items. I think everyone will be quite excited by this selection, for included here are 10 of the absolutely rarest of rare of the books from the Gann List, those that almost no one has ever found in the last 50 years. We're always excited when we find one of these every few years, but here are 10 at once, along with another 11 extremely interesting pieces by the same or our other favorite authors, which most of you have probably never seen before.
Since we realize that those of you most interested in the Gann Ellipse are our most advanced Gann researchers, we realize that a number of you may already have some of these items, or not be interested in some, so we initially broke them into 3 packages where clients could select from none to all books as desired. We have since discontinued those sets, and now sell the Gann Ellipse with the 3 Ellipse Manuals, and any Gann List books can be easily purchased in our online store as physical books or PDF Downloads.
Answers to Inquiries
A couple people have passed on comments from WITS and I've also had a few other questions surrounding the issues mentioned, making me realize that there are some rumors going around based upon some of the information I sent out, which I should clarify.
As I'm sure everyone understands in the Gann community, there is a fine line between rumor, orally passed legend, inside knowledge, and absolute fact, and being in the center of a vast information flow there is a continuous dance between unsubstantiated stories I hear vs. trustworthy information which is shared in confidence, and about which I'm not at liberty to speak. The two emails I sent out contained a combination of various of these elements, and as you said, some at the beginning was rumor I was told, but I did not come back and clarify those points, mostly because it was about 4 months between then and I wasn't thinking about that which was first mentioned. I also didn't know this was a topic of conversation and continued interest. In the future, if there is anything unclear that has come from me, anyone please feel free to email me and I'll be happy to clear up any misunderstanding.
So let me tell you exactly what I do and do not know, what is speculation, fact, and likelihood:
First, there were a number of pieces of information told to me by the owner of the ellipses, most of which I have been unable to find any confirmation for whatsoever, which is why I never mentioned them again.
Unsubstantiated points that I was told by the owner which I have NOT been able to confirm:
The ellipse was used to call all the Ticker Interview Trades.
I have absolutely no evidence to confirm this in any way, so I'm taking this as pure rumor, at best. As we research and understand the ellipse, we'll check against the Ticker trades, and see if we can find any correlation, but for now, best to consider there is none.
The owner's godfather was a private student of Gann's and Gann showed the ellipses only to his close students and would not let anyone have a copy.
I've found NO proof or substantiation of this claim, so again I chalk it up to rumor with possibility for now.
What I can confirm:
The original owner was a Baumring student
His information was in our files from the Investment Centre, and a few of my long term friends know him, were fellow students, worked with him, purchased libraries with him, and more, and they all thought he was an honest and dedicated person, but could not confirm his trading stories, the story of his godfather, or any knowledge of the ellipses, yet they agreed it was possible, there's just no way for us to know.
That these 3 ellipses came from the Lambert-Gann collection and were there in that collection back in the 70's
I was able to confirm this. One source even suggested that I would recognize two of the ellipses right off, which was true.
A connection between these ellipses and Bayer's work?
Let me be clear, which has been somewhat hard to do because I agreed not to say anything much to anyone outside of those who subscribe to the package, but the confusion warrants some clarification. Of the 3 ellipses, there is only ONE which is something new and different, and which MAY have been created by Gann, but was definitely in his possession. The other two ellipses ARE the two Bayer ellipses, exact same size, proportions and similar markings. The interest in the third ellipse is that it does something with the first two, setting them at angles, with lines, and markings which takes the use of these other ellipses which we all know, to a different level.
How do I know it takes it to a different level?
Professional opinion, as I've worked with these types of tools for 20 years, and ellipses were a specialty of Dr. Baumring's, who, by the way, was the first person to rediscover and release Bayer's works, Wollsten and 400 Years. I also know others who have worked with these tools for over 10 years, and who have theorized that their use is dependent upon some further interrelation between the different ellipses, so that this new one is right up the line they were looking for. So, in my relatively educated opinion, this third ellipse which combines the two Bayer ellipses, poses the next step in the application of this work, a step which I only know a couple people who have ever considered and experimented with. That's about all I can say for now, but this is my basis for the claim:
"There is little doubt this tool most likely represents the intended solution posed by Bayer's incomplete ellipse work."
The connection between Gann & Bayer
Just the fact that these two Bayer ellipses were found in Gann's collection implies that Gann at least knew of Bayer and his work. But the discovery of this third ellipse is even more interesting. Did Bayer create it and Gann get ahold of it, or is it Gann's extension of Bayer's work? I don't know, but I think we'll have a better idea in six months. One of our sources confirmed to us that he had seen evidence that Gann and Bayer simultaneously held anonymous memberships on the CBOT in 1936. The secretary of the exchange in 1936 possessed a log of memberships which included the hand-written names, addresses and phone numbers of both Gann and Bayer, and he remembered their meeting on the exchange. Sadly, with the death of this individual, these records have been lost, so we are unable to obtain any physical proof of these facts, so this information remains hearsay, but it is still worth consideration. I really want to create a place where we can all share the little bits and pieces that we've dug up, but I'll have to talk those who know these secrets to opening up and sharing, and that's not always easy; many serious researchers don't like to publicly share their hard won insights, but I'll keep trying to talk them into it.
Replies from a number of people on our mailing list helped fill in some of the further gaps related to this material, like the comment below:
"you've been told by more than one source that Gann only started using ellipses when he was trying to explain astro results via geometric methods."
I've heard the same thing, but where's the proof?
I don't have anything definite, other than stories and opinions of some of the smarter and better connected people in this field. There are no ellipses in Gann's work, not exactly at least, so how do we know this? We do have some quotes of Gann's, like this one:
"Remember, everything in this universe is elliptical or circular in motion; that applies both to the abstract and the concrete, the mental, physical and spiritual. ... In making my calculations on the stock market, or any future event, I get the past history and find out what cycle we are in and then predict the curve for the future, which is a repetition of past market movements." W. D. Gann The Tunnel Thru the Air, pp. 76-77
Regarding presenting so and so's analysis of this work, that is what we do intend to do, but this will take some time and serious research, and we would like to invite anyone seriously interested in this work to participate in the process now rather than later, if they are so inclined. I'm not sure how we will publish that in the future since it will obviously be the combined work of a number of people, which is why I'm creating our online Gann Ellipse Research Salon where we will all discuss and analyze this together, so it may end up that we'll pull together the essence of what we find and put that together as a book down the line, along with entry into the Salon which will have all the intermediary and exploratory research.
It is due to the fact that I understand that there are many questions regarding the authenticity and value of these ellipses, that I told the owner that I wasn't interested unless we could arrange a much better deal including a number of further valuable and rare items to offset the risk for everyone in exploring the ellipses. Actually, to make this even more of a deal and to offer the best value possible, I've created the packages so that the base package for $1000 includes 10 books from the set. My feeling is that anyone can find ten books in that set which they would consider to be worth $100 each, so that the ellipses and the 1100 page manuals I'm putting with them essentially are included for free. Anyone who doesn't think those other items are worth that much, in my opinion, is not a very serious Gann researcher.
There are at least five of the rarest Gann List books there that I don't know a single person who has a copy, including myself, until now, and even Baumring and all of his students. Fred White's work has almost never been known, Foster's Sunspots & Weather, people have wondered if it really existed, Councel's work everyone has searched for years. That Rubber piece, I'm pretty sure is another Sepharial Arcana, which no one has seen, though I'm not positive about it yet, but I'll know when my first guys have a look at it. Then there's still Lynch, Yogi Rama, Flamarion & Gore, Gregorius, Raphael, Sepharial and more. This is the biggest chunk of the rare Gann List that I've ever nailed down at once.
I hope this information helps to clear up any confusion.
The Ellipse Package includes the newly discovered Gann Ellipse with 3 Volumes of accompanying Ellipse Research Material by Bayer, Baumring, and others.
The first 2 Manuals include excerpts from Baumring's Gann Harmony: The Law of Vibration Course Manuals (about 4 Manuals' worth of material) and Lecture Notes (2 Seminars worth of Notes), in 2 numbered volumes.
It also includes a 350 page book containing everything George Bayer ever wrote about ellipses, astronomy or anything connected. These three manuals will be the source work for the Gann Ellipse research taking place in the Private Salon, to which this purchase gains access.
T. G. Butaney, a famous Indian astrologer, wrote 3 books on astrological financial market forecasting and horse racing prediction.
His books were judged "The Best Money Minting Books on Speculation and Racing By Readers All Over The World", and explain Market Forecasting, Race Astrology & Numerology and Handicap Formulae.
Law of Vibration
Research works or market systems based upon Gann’s theory of the Law of Vibration. Includes many scientific and esoteric work getting into harmonics, cycles, and cosmology as it relates to causative systems of order behind the markets. Primary reference and research section for those studying deep Gann analysis.
Gann Reading List
In the 1940’s Gann published a 2-page list of about 90 Books that he stocked and sold to his students, known as "W. D. Gann’s Recommended Reading List".
Each book contains some component of Gann’s system of knowledge essential for piecing together his system.
Any one book may have one simple idea critical to Gann's perspective.
The Law Of The Cosmos, The Divine Harmony According To Plato's Republic/Timeaus, and The Platonic Riddle Of Numbers Solved contains 100s of sophisticated diagrams on Sacred Geometry, Pythagorean and Platonic Number Theory, Harmonics and Astronomy with analysis, elaboration of Universal Order and Cosmic Law.
Ancient civilizations teach us much, but knowledge of ancient cultures is academically perverted and misrepresented.
Great monuments like the pyramids and temples far exceed modern architecture, incorporating sciences not even considered today.
Our catalog has many rare and important works on Ancient Civilizations.
Ancients and some modern alternative thought has discovered cosmic influences on material and mental reality going beyond traditional science.
New systems of connection and propagation of force and energy derive from the work of Pythagoras, Tesla, Walter Russell, Schwaller de Lubicz and many others who have studied wider cosmic energies.
Our collection contains a selection of works on physical development and health, from yoga, to theories of nutrition and the like based upon esoteric ideas and principles developed in different schools and traditions of thought.
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.
