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.
Cosmological Economics in Theory & Practice
What Is Cosmological Economics An Introductory Overview
Cosmological Economics is a new and cutting-edge paradigm which integrates the principles of scientific cosmology with economic theory producing powerful applications in financial market analysis and forecasting. This field has emerged from a long tradition of investigation into correlations between universal order, mathematics and natural science on one side, and patterns of mass psychology and human behavior on the other. The fundamental premise of CosmoEconomics is that market movements are not random, and that through the use of cosmological ordering principles, financial markets are predictable!
We have compiled a long history of impressive forecasts and predictions that have been documented over 100 years, produced by a variety of analysts and forecasters with different approaches and skill sets, during different historical time periods. These analysts have left records of their market forecasts and financial models which have predicted market behavior with an accuracy that is far beyond the possibility of chance correlation. CosmoEconomics is the science behind such financial forecasting methodologies, elaborating both the theoretical foundations as well as the practical technologies through which such forecasts can be produced.
There are numerous approaches used to create such forecasts, such as cyclical analysis, energetic modeling, mathematical series, harmonic composition, geometrical projection, periodicity sequencing, structural analysis, sympathetic resonance and more. But the fundamental premise remains the same, that behind the phenomenon we call “the financial markets” lies a system of order that can be defined and predicted using the scientific principles which underlie certain systems of ancient, modern and alternative cosmology.
Stock Market Science: The Subjective & Objective Fields
There are two primary fields of influence lying behind this science, an internal and an external, or a subjective and an objective. The core premise behind the subjective element is that the financial markets are essentially a “barometer of mass human psychology”. A market is nothing more than the measure of the conjoined summation of all thought and feeling behind or about the value of a particular entity or product like a stock or a commodity. Some markets are even comprised of non-real, conceptual entities like indexes or ETF’s, options and derivatives, which are just purely theoretical entities with absolutely NO physical existence whatsoever.
A “market” then, for any such entity, is the summation of all investment decisions engaged in by the mass of society “trading” that particular entity. And the “decisions” that are made through the buying and selling of stocks and futures of any kind, come directly from the mind, emotions, and overall psychology of the traders involved.
The Subjective Dimensions of Stock Markets Movements: Human Hopes, Fears & Indecision
That psychology is influenced by a wide range of factors such as study, intelligence, information, emotion, and experience, which vary from person to person, from moment to moment, and continuously shift and change according to the immediate circumstances of the individual and current situation of the world. Every individual continually processes a combination of both his own individual internal experience, and his external collective experience, these two elements engaging each other in an ongoing feedback loop. The entire collective body of traders or investors in any market engage in the same process, creating what we define as “mass human psychology.”
There are only three possible directions in which the market can move: up, down and sideways. Correlatively, there are only three summational influences of human psychology as applied to making a trading decision, which are hope, fear and indecision.
With hope, the market rises. With fear, it falls. And with indecision, it goes sideways…
Extreme forms of these would be euphoria and panic, which are what produce parabolic spikes and crashes. The model need not be complex, simply a range of three general psychological states with their three correlative market responses will serve to provide a general psychological theory of the markets.
The secondary or objective form of influence behind the markets is caused by external physical or social phenomena which will vary for each market, having greater effect on some and little on others. Here we are talking about elements like weather, war, political upheaval, supply, demand, natural disasters, government control, social trends, the business cycle, and all other such external factors which may influence the markets.
Beyond Duality: Pattern, Repeatability, & Cycle Theory
However, we do not necessarily consider these factors in the way that a fundamental analyst would. Whereas a fundamentalist would look at each of these elements as a cause in itself, we look at them more deeply, seeking a sense of possible order or even causation behind such elements, looking for patterns or influences which may directly or indirectly affect them.
For instance, when one examines either weather patterns or the business cycle, one can easily discover that these events occur according to regular time periods which can be explained by cycle theory. There are both long term and short term cycles which have been proven to influence weather patterns, though the actual cause is as yet still a field of active investigation.
The Business Cycle
The Business Cycle, which by its very nature is defined as a cycle, and has been plotted out through history by many academic scholars, the ex-Fed Chair, Paul Voelker, even acknowledging the undeniable effects of its influence. But how often do you hear anyone ask whether there may be some kind of plausible explanation behind such a cycle, some potential cause? Is this not the next logical step in such a consideration? Yet very few seem to ask this question, as if a “cycle” were just an entity unto itself with no cause or correlation.
It is exactly these kinds of causes and correlations that CosmoEconomics seeks to examine. Within this paradigm, such questions represent the next logical step in this field of exploration. We simply ask WHY?
Why do weather patterns fall into regular cycles?
Why can the Business Cycle even be defined as a cycle that has shown itself throughout history for 100’s if not 1000’s of years?
Is this not the next logical step that a rational mind observing a phenomenon would ask about something that is, as yet, unexplained?
Is it not within the purview of scientific method to engage in such inquiry and investigation?
By analyzing systems of ancient and modern cosmology, the science of CosmoEconomics examines the potential correlations between such seemingly disconnected events as financial markets or business cycles, being a mass social or psychological pattern, and natural phenomena, which are strictly governed by the laws of science and mathematics.
It asks the simple question: could there be an as yet undiscovered cause behind or correlation between these seemingly disparate events? And the answer we discover in our analysis is YES! Indeed, there is, at the very least, some kind correlation between these events that has been well documented over long periods of history!
CosmoEconomics: The Quest for Causation
Ultimately then, the field of Cosmological Economics seeks, at most, the discovery of an unknown, underlying system of cosmological order or causation behind mass social patternings like the financial markets, or at the very least, to provide some kind of explanation for this documented pattern of mysterious correlation between such phenomena. In either case, the results will inevitably define some unknown degree of order in what is currently considered by modern science to be a totally random or chaotic phenomenon.
Either discovery would be powerful, the lesser providing a valuable methodology for forecasting financial markets based upon the know correlations, even if the reason for those correlations remained unknown. But the former would be so radical as to inspire a revolutionary breakthrough in modern scientific, economic, and social theory, the like of which would force a complete reevaluation of the fundamental principles of science and the nature of reality itself.
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.
