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.
William Delbert Gann
The Founding Father of Cosmological Economics
About the Author
The Institute of Cosmological Economics considers William Delbert Gann to be the most influential figure in the study and development of Financial Astrology and Cosmological Economics. Throughout his years of expansive and dedicated research, Gann meticulously assembled a unique and comprehensive analysis and trading system that synthesized rigorous and dependable trading methods with a profound esoteric and mathematical understanding of how all things in nature (including the Markets) relate through a Universal Law of Vibration. His master system was elaborated across a long history of books and courses, each containing several layers of encoded information. Initial exposure to his material portrays an obvious and exoteric teaching of Cosmological Economics tools. Further study reveals a more secretive esoteric pedagogy outlined through obscure references, phraseologies, calculators and mysterious charts.
Gann’s pioneering studies were decades ahead of his time. The tools and techniques that his legacy offers have only increased in their efficacy and application through the advent of technological advances in recent years. When computationally applied, Gann’s exoteric techniques provide some of the most practical tools ever developed in the field of Technical Analysis. His esoteric tools are capable of producing indicators, forecasts, or trading signals which far exceed the general industry standards.
The Institute of Cosmological Economics remains dedicated to promoting the source teachings of W.D Gann by offering the most comprehensive catalog of his Master Courses, Unpublished Works, Charts, Mathematical Calculators and more. We have amassed the most comprehensive collection of his legendary Gann Reading List and are at the forefront of promoting the efforts of the premier Market Researchers who have followed in his footsteps, such as authors Dr. Jerome Baumring (the only known person who fully uncovered the Gann code), Dr. Lorrie V. Bennett, Daniel T. Ferrera, Catalin Plapcianu and others.
William Delbert Gann was born at 10.34am on 6 June 1878, in a rural setting on the outskirts of Lufkin, Texas. His first exposure to the world of investment was as a 13 year old newspaper sales boy aboard trains. During this time he overheard many conversations from train passengers, speculating on market investments and future commodity prices. These conversations sparked an interest in him that would change the path of his life forever.
Wall Street Trader
At the age of 25 Gann relocated to New York City. In 1903 he gained his first job working at a large brokerage house in Wall Street. In these early years he developed a strategy to make profits that was rooted in the sound principles of understanding Price Patterns, Technical Analysis, and most importantly – Risk Management. While integrating these essential foundations into his profession, Gann developed a desire for deeper insight into exactly how and why market patterns, and certain numbers, repeated cyclically throughout time. His motivation to learn more about these cycles led him to a deeper esoteric study of subjects including Natural Philosophy, Vibration, Number Theory, Sacred Geometry and Astrology.
Gann’s Significant Discovery
It was on August 8th, 1908 that Gann says he made his most significant discovery in Market Forecasting} and after many years of dedicated research and study, Gann then promoted his forecasting abilities to Wall Street in the famous Ticker & Investment Digest Interview with Richard D. Wyckoff. During the interview, Gann emphatically declares that the essence of his years of study and market forecasting abilities are firmly rooted in the understanding of “The Universal Law of Causation and Harmony”. He also states in candid terms that "Everything in existence is based on exact proportion and perfect relationship. There is no chance in nature, because mathematical principles of the highest order lie at the foundation of all things.”
His Astonishing Successes
As personally witnessed by an independent Auditor hired by The Ticker, Gann demonstrated his forecasting proficiency by producing 1000% return with 262 out of 284 successful trades over one month of trading; an astonishing 92% success rate. This incredible milestone remains a beacon for those seeking to uncover the deepest secrets contained within the esoteric level of his writings. It remains that to this day, although many have claimed, that very few traders have truly demonstrated evidence describing a market forecasting proficiency to match that of Gann. In our extensive knowledge of the field, the only “true contemporary” who has done this was the late Dr. Jerome Baumring of the Investment Centre.
Gann’s Masonic Affiliations
On December 15th, 1922, Gann gained membership into Commonwealth-Stella Lodge No. 409, Free & Accepted Masons, New York City, and by March 27th 1923 he was raised as a 3rd degree Master Mason. Gann demitted his Masonic affiliation 16 years later in 1939. Although Gann never cites his Masonic affiliation as being critical to his successes on Wall St as a Financial Forecaster (his record was proven prior to membership), we acknowledge that it may have played some role in his development. We can safely assume that his affiliatoin was used to gain access to the rare, original Masonic source works held in thier libraries, to learn their secrets and codes, and to meet other like-minded contacts in his field of interest.
The Forecasts of W. D. Gann
Throughout his life, Gann made numerous forecasts and predictions including the November 9, 1918 abdication of the German Kaiser and the end of WWI. His abilities to predict future socio-economic events is most notably demonstrated in his perennial classic “The Tunnel thru the Air” (Pub. 9th May 1927) in which Gann forecast the exact top and price of Cotton on 8th September 1927 at 24.40 (pp. 196). He also accurately forecast that the stock exchange would close due to panic selling on October 3rd 1931, and that the major low would occur on the 5th October of the same year. The forecast also included a market rally from the low of 85.51 to a high of 119.15 on 9th November 1931 (pp. 321-323). These forecasts are just a few that demonstrate the vast extent of his predictive capacities.
Author & Publisher
The legacy left behind by this Master Trader and founding father of Cosmoeconomics remains available for exploration in the form of his meticulously crafted Books and Master Courses. Throughout his career as an Author & Publisher Gann retained complete control over all editorial aspects related to his works. This must remain a critical consideration for prospective purchasers of his titles, as he deliberately encoded the essence and secrets behind his teachings within the covers of his books “in plain sight”.
Many contemporary reprints of his titles include editorial changes that negate the clues contained within his originals. The Institute of Cosmological Economics retains an unwavering commitment to upholding the publication of all true-to-source embodiments of the Gann Legacy.
Gann and Spirituality
W.D. Gann’s spiritual beliefs cannot be separated from his developments in the field of Financial Forecasting. Throughout his life he regularly stated that the Bible was one of his most important and noteworthy source works.
In his twilight years, Gann’s last published offering “The Magic Word” was a means to “Show others the way to use and obey God’s divine law and thus help them to bring out their latent talents and their God-given powers, for that is the only way they can realize health, happiness, and prosperity.” However, those who follow the esoteric trail of Gann’s teachings know that the Biblical references contained in this work serve as a code to decipher some of the final hidden secrets that Gann left behind for posterity.
The Legacy of W. D. Gann
Gann was said to have taken over $50,000,000 out of the markets over his long trading career, leading to continuing interest in uncovering the secret teachings of his esoteric system. Gann died on June 18th, 1955, leaving generations of traders and researchers fascinated and intrigued with the vast offerings he has left behind. The Institute of Cosmological Economics is proud to be the premium centralized source for the accumulation and distribution of the very best original and Gann-related materials that explain, apply and decode his vast perennial legacy.
The Publications of W.D. Gann
Gann published 7 books over his career, intended for wider public distribution. These books cover a wide range of topics. We carry the only exact facsimile reproductions of these books, unchanged from the original editions.
An interesting story entwining the stock and commodity markets with the nation’s struggle leading up to World War II. Many of the events, inventions, market panics and booms mentioned in this book actually came true.
Considered by Gann traders around the world as the ‘Bible’ of stock trading. This book encapsulates Gann’s 47 years of trading experience. It contains practical and necessary trading for achieving success in stock market trading.
This book was the last un-revised book that W.D.Gann wrote. It’s intention is to show others the way to use and obey Gods divine law in order to bring out their latent talents and God-given powers to achieve health, happiness, and prosperity.
The Collected Writings of W.D. Gann
Aside from his 7 books, W.D. Gann wrote numerous Private Courses throughout his long career. They represent the most important of all of Gann’s writings, and go into much greater detail than his public book series. They contain his deepest and most important teachings.
In addition to the exact facsimiles of his original material, our 6 Volumes of Gann’s Collected Writings come supplemented with other rare Gann material that has been rediscovered by the Institute since the death of Dr. Jerome Baumring. Thereby making these volumes the most authoritative and relevant set of W.D. Gann courses available.

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.
