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.
Where To Begin?A Guide for New Users to the Best Use of this Website
We realize that the website of the Institute of Cosmological Economics is a vast and complex site, so we have created the following introductory guide to help new readers quickly and easily explore the site and identify the key sections and information they are seeking. If you are new to our work, this page should help talk you through our general content, and direct you to what you are most interested in.
If you read through this introductory guide, it will direct you to all the most important sections of this website, where you will find further detailed index pages focusing down upon the more specific content within each section. For our older clients who are wondering what’s new on this new ICE website, see What’s New? page which will quickly isolate all the new content added on this site.
While this detailed introduction is probably best read in sequence, it can also be jumped around in whatever order your interest leads you. Each section interlinks with each other in various ways, and further leads deeper into our site through specific research topics, books, courses and categories of interest.
For a more general introduction to the ICE, our history, mission and activities, we suggest you read the About Us section which tells our story, leading back a couple generations from our origins with Dr. Baumring in the 1980’s, through our development onto the Internet back in the mid-90’s.
Our Article Index collates all of the ICE articles scattered throughout the site that are written by the institute and its authors. This index contains some of the most educative and informational content on this site.
Study Guides: What To Read For What Purpose
There are many different areas of research and application within our numerous fields of expertise, so in order to help you identify the material you need to accomplish your specific goals, we have created a series of study guides, which recommend the most important books and courses for each specialized field of research, study, or trading.
In terms of trading, we have broken down the different approaches into clear categories, with specific references and recommendations as follows:
If you are a long term investor, there are specific books and information services which will best suit your wider perspective and risk parameters.
If you are speculator looking for intermediate term opportunities to position trade big, powerful trends, there is a different set of studies and services which will best serve your needs.
If you are a swing trader primarily focused on one or several particular markets, looking to trade continuous reversals of the short to intermediate trend, a different set of materials will be essential for you.
If you are a short-term, day-trader will require a different tool set to analyze and capture intraday swings. We have broken down these different approaches and created categories of books, courses and forecasts which will best serve each type.
However, for those who are not able to simply categorize themselves as a particular type of trader, but are instead interested more abstractly in philosophy, or in various schools of thought, technical application, scientific theories or esoteric speculations, we have guides which approach the problem from such alternative angles.
In this situation, we work from points of theory, considering varying conceptual approaches, categorical fields of knowledge, or technical specializations, and provide research guides through a vast labyrinth of ideas, helping researchers to discover the material they have long sought, but did not where to find, or if it even existed at all. A summary of these types of alternative approaches would be:
Those simply interested in technical analysis, either in theory or application, and wanting to study the Great Masters of Technical Analysis, like Gann, Elliot, Andrews, Tubbs, Cole or Bayer. We have ALL the greatest work of the old Masters.
Those wanting proprietary trading systems that they can set up to run automatically and developed to be more efficient with further research.
Those interested in cycles and wanting to learn to model markets in that way.
Those interested in scientific approaches to the market, looking at physics and mathematics as the factors providing the structure or energy behind market action.
Those interested in more esoteric subjects like market geometry or financial astrology, looking for some kind of deeper order behind market fluctuations.
Those hard-core financial researchers, seeking to crack the code behind the markets. For these, we have the widest range of advanced studies looking at the core of market phenomena, order and causation, the essence of the study of Cosmological Economics.
The final category makes up the core of our primary clientele, for as one develops a taste for REAL knowledge of this kind, one tends to work from the superficial to the deeper layers of phenomena, finding first correlations, and then seeking causation. This quest inevitably leads beyond a mere study of financial markets, to a study of the Universe itself, and man’s relationship to it. This subject was named Cosmology by the great Pythagoras, founder of the Western scientific tradition. The type of researcher who will find the most value in our site is the one who takes THIS path, our specialty, which we have named “Cosmological Economics”.
The ICE catalog is divided into several key levels of material explained as follows:
The Showcased Authors are published exclusively by the Institute of Cosmological Economics and represent the best of the best works within this field of financial market analysis and forecasting. Most were written by living authors, or authors who lived recently, and to whose works we hold the exclusive distribution rights.
Important Authors, Important, Classic & Popular Titles
These are other authors whom we consider to be very important, or whose works are popular with our clientele. Some will be the old Masters of the Golden Age of Technical Analysis like George Bayer or Dr. Alan Andrews, Donald Bradley, Sepharial, Tubbs, Cole, Elliot and the like, whose classic works we keep alive for ongoing generations of researchers and students.
Alternatively, they may be other modern authors whose work we do not publish, but which we respect and feel deserves inclusion in our catalog, such as the work of Andrew Pancholi, Bill Meridian, Earik Beann, Michael Jenkins, and other friends and associates of ours who also specialize in elements of our field. While our Showcased Authors represent under 50 works in our catalog, these others reach out to another 100+ excellent works.
The Translation Society
The Translation Society is a joint partnership project with our more esoteric and scientific sister institute, the Sacred Science Institute, and our associated 501c3 non-profit foundation, The Sacred Science Preservation Foundation. This project began back in 2004 and was funded by a group of approximately 100 dedicated Gann researchers. It brought together top scholars to translate seven important titles from both German and French, specializing in highly important source works in vibrational harmonics, esoteric cosmology, and Pythagorean science, critical to the deepest market research.
The ongoing project will continue to translate many more important works into English in the coming years, using our non-profit status to raise funds through tax deductible donations and to obtain academic and government grants in the future.
ICE Bookstore: Author, Title, Category & Keyword
The above sections serve to direct people towards very specific goals or to lists of our most popular and important works, centered around the field of financial analysis and trading. However, our entire catalog spans many times the number of listings mentioned above. In total we have over 400 titles, mostly our own publications, but we are also continuously adding other works which we consider to be important, published by ourselves or others.
Our main Bookstore Index is organized according to category, with very specific listings to help clients find the exact type of books they are looking for, or to direct them to highly specialized categories and relationships of which they may not be aware.
These categories extend far beyond financial market subjects into advanced fields of science and metaphysics, upon which the most advanced financial theories, like those of Gann, Bayer, AstroEconomics, the Law of Vibration, Market Geometry, Cycle Theory, and Cosmological Economics depend.
Our catalog is the most complete collection of books on these important subjects in the world.
Our Bookstore Database can also be browsed or searched by Author, Title, Category, or any Keyword, allowing many different ways to explore our vast collection to discover fascinating, new material about which you probably never knew.
Research & Discussion Forums
Another large part of our site are our Discussion and Research Forums. Many of our forums are Private Forums accompanying specific, proprietary courses by our Showcased Authors, serving as a classroom environment where students of each book or course can interact with the author and other course owners, asking questions, sharing ideas and working together with other members. Forums attached to specific courses have restricted membership and can only be accessed by owners of those courses.
We also have Public Forums which are open to the general public upon registration, where anyone can discuss ideas and share research with a group of their peers interested in similar ideas and topics. A wider group of our general books and research topics are discussed in these forums, and ongoing commentary upon many of our more popular books are shared here. Please feel free to register for these Public Forums and to share your work and ideas.
We also are developing a peer reviewed Article Archive, where outside researchers can submit their research papers to share with our peer reviewed community, to receive feedback and engage in public discussion about their work.
Aside from these central fields where the bulk of our site content exists, there are a handful of administrative and informative links that clients may find useful to make full use of the site, communicate with us, or other things:
A continually updated news page, where anything new is added at the top, so you can always check in and review new items that may not have been here on your last visit.

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.
