There are two quite different sides to Gann analysis, the deeply theoretical, seeking to understand the essence of the science behind Gann’s 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 Gann’s 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 Gann’s 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 Gann’s theories. For those seeking a solid, Master’s Degree level education in technical Gann analysis, we cannot recommend anything more highly than Ferrera’s works.
Ferrera has written detailed course on every angle of Gann’s work and provides a fast track into a deep understanding of each field of Gann’s work as well as advanced topics in technical analysis. He has works on cycles analysis, Gann’s Square of 9, Gann’s Mass Pressure Charts, one on risk management and Gann’s swing trading system, another on the details of Gann’s 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 Master’s degree in Gann and technical analysis.
W.D. Gann Works
W. D. Gann’s private courses represent the most important of all of Gann’s 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 Gann’s 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 Gann’s courses were initially collected and compiled by Dr. Baumring and Donald Mack in the 1980’s 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 couldn’t be further from the truth! Each of Gann’s “courses” were actually small, “sections” 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 1940’s and that he “called” 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 Gann’s death when purchased by Ed Lambert. For instance, there are pieces that Gann advertised in the 1950’s as “new” like his Master Mathematical Formula for Market Predictions, or his rare #3 Master Time Factor Course which were never included in his “Master Courses”, and similarly were never included with any of the Lambert Gann courses sold by Lambert or the Jones’ from the 60’s until now. So these “master” 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 Gann’s 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 Baumring’s 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 “supposed” collections of Gann’s writings as most are unauthorized, incomplete, and distorted representations of his work, and cannot be trusted. Our set it the most reliable set of Gann’s unadulterated and most important work available…
While W.D. Gann’s own original work is a critical element for any Gann researcher’s collection, most people will find Gann’s 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 Gann’s, without significant help by well-seasoned analysts and traders who have dedicated years to decoding and creating practical tools from Gann’s techniques. This is why there is a fundamental and valuable secondary market of works presenting and developing Gann’s 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.
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.
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 Gann’s 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 Gann’s and are quite powerful, but are slightly different from Gann’s, 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 1000’s 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 1920’s through the 1970’s, 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 20’s. 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 90’s 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 Gann’s system of trading and market order. However, even further, Baumring rediscovered and elaborated the system of scientific cosmology at the root of Gann’s Law of Vibration. There is absolutely no other Gann teaching that goes anywhere near as deep as Baumring’s 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. Baumring’s 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 100’s) of books required to develop the foundations needed to understand Gann’s 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 “Numerical Astrophysics” 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 “best of the best” 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 Gann’s 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! Baumring’s 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, “If you only are looking to make money, don’t bother studying Gann, it’s too difficult. Simply study swing trading systems, risk management and options strategies, and you can make all the money you want to make.” (Note: we have excellent books on these alternatives…) 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 Gann’s 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.
