W.D. Gann’s original work is a critical element for any Gann researcher, but many find Gann’s deeper work challenging without help from well-seasoned analysts and traders.
We offer valuable secondary works presenting and developing Gann’s ideas: the best teachers in this field are not so much competitors, but fellow contributors to ongoing research.
The two fundamental elements of reality are space and time, and of the markets price and time.
Gann always said that Time is the most important variable.
If you know exactly WHEN to place your trades, when the market will turn, top, bottom, react or breakout, you will be able to trade or invest with great precision.
Baumring Financial List
Dr. Baumring compiled long reading lists even more comprehensive than Gann's, comprising works having key elements directly applicable to Gann Theory and Cosmological Economics.
Any student wanting to explore particular fields in depth will find Baumring’s lists to be indispensable, since they over important but unfamiliar topics.
Cosmology provides the primary basis for our theoretical system of market order and scientific analysis. Moving beyond modern ideas, our approach to Cosmology involves Pythagorean, Esoteric, Eastern, and Ancient metaphysical theories of cosmology.
Our ICE collection focuses on ancient concepts as well as modern alternative theories of the universe.
Leonardo Fibonacci is often cited as the discoverer of the Golden Ratio or Phi, but he was not the first, The Ancients called this the Divine Proportion and used it in their art and architecture.
The Golden Ratio is the governing principle of most natural forms, and the Divine Proportion is the most dominant mathematical form in the natural universe.
In Magic Squares the addition of each of the rows and columns add up to the same number.
From Ancient times thinkers have explored these mathematical mysteries, uncovering deep ordering principles underlying numbers and geometry.
Within his esoteric market analysis systems Gann used a "Squares of Nine" and a "Square of Four".
There is a long tradition of the use of instruments to read subtle energy forces in nature, through the use of subtle measuring devices like dowsing rods and pendulums.
The Jesuits were famous for finding water sources, showing advanced knowledge of using these techniques.
The scientific name for this practice is Vibrational Radiesthesia.
W.D. Gann Works
We stock the complete collection of the works of W.D. Gann.
His private courses represent the most important of his writings, going into much greater detail than the public book series. Our 6 Volume set of Gann’s Collected Writings includes supplementary rare source materials, and is the most reliable compliation of Gann’s unadulterated vital work.
Dr. Jerome Baumring
The work of Dr. Baumring is the core inspiration upon which this entire website is based. Baumring is the only known modern person to have cracked the code behind WD Gann’s system of trading and market order.
Baumring found and elaborated the system of scientific cosmology at the root of Gann’s Law of Vibration.
There is no other Gann teaching that gets close to the depth of Baumring’s work.
Sample Text & Charts From the The Path of Least Resistance
The Underlying Wisdom & Philosophy of W. D. Gann Elegantly Encoded in the Master Charts
By Daniel T. Ferrera
"GEOMETRICAL ANGLES are the most important of all rules for determining both PRICE and TIME culminations. - W. D. Gann
The following section will present a bit of sample text from Daniel T. Ferrera's course The Path of Least Resistance, as well as show a handful of charts that illustrate the general style of techniques that are presented in this course. We cannot really explain what is being done on these charts, as that is what is covered in the course itself, but we hope this helps give a better sense of the quality and depth of the material!
Sample pages 101-104 from The Path of Least Resistance
Notice that this is the 2nd 10% or greater correction in the bull market that began from the 2009 low. I gave my Outlook for 2011 subscribers this particular sell signal prior to this square-out and correction, based on geometric angles projected up from the last higher low of the up-trend, and the lost motion entry pattern from my course, Keys to Successful Speculation.
Note that on October 4th, 2011, the market found support exactly on the 1 x 2 angle projected down from the 2007 top. From this point forward, the market never regained the 1 x 1 angle from the March 2009 low.
The 45° angle projected from October 4th, 2011 provided the main support level for the remainder of this bull market, thus illustrating why Gann said, "you must always draw 45° angles from every important high or low."
The next down arrow in the series on the above chart shows where the 45° angle moving up from the March 6, 2009 low reaches the price level, or horizontal angle, of the October 2007 top. This "square of the range" brought in another notable market correction of approximately -8%.
The S&P500 Index then found support on the 45° angle moving up from the October 4th, 2011 low, that is to say, the same low price and date where the 1 x 2 angle from the 2007 top acted as a strong support level noted in the prior paragraph.
The 2nd red circle occurs on December 30th, 2014 to January 2, 2015 and will represent the 2nd "square of the range" from the October 2007 top.
Notice that the highest price levels reached in 2014 are all meeting strong resistance on the 1 x 1 angle from the April 2nd, 2012 top, which was an attempt to regain the original 45° angle from March 2009, but failed to reach it.
Another 1 x 4 angle was projected up from the October 2007 top to show the intersection of geometric angles occurring at the upper end of the green 1 x 1 parallel price channel. This brought in the third 10% correction since March 2009 and the market collapsed down to the 1 x 1 angle moving up from the October 4th, 2011 low, which is the most important support level that this bull market must hold. If this angle breaks, then according to Gann's rules a collapse to the 1 x 2 angle or more would be anticipated.
The final chart above shows 3 additional arrows. The 1st down arrow is the March 2009 low price converted to time. In other words, the 666 low price, divided by the price 1 to 1 price scale (.992), which equals 671 trading days. This was the 1st square-out of the low expressed as time.
The first up arrow is the October 2007 high price converted to time, which equals 1589 trading days. This is the first square-out of the 2007 high expressed as time.
The 3rd arrow, which also points down, is the 2nd square-out of the March 2009 low expressed as a time period. These turning points were determined mathematically by dividing the price with the correct scale, but are identical to projecting the 1 x 1 angles up from zero at the date of origin, per Gann's instructions, to determine when they reach the former price level or horizontal angle.
These examples show all of Gann's essential concepts: geometric angles, squaring the range, squaring the extreme high and squaring the extreme low, all of which he presented in a small, yet very expensive course titled The Basis of My Forecasting Method.
The KEY secret Gann retained was not telling the student how to correctly balance the primary 1 x 1 angle so that 1 unit of price equals 1 unit of time. This secret was only revealed to private students who consented to signing a confidentiality agreement in order to have this essential key revealed. Without this fundamental insight and first important step, all of Gann's geometrical work is practically useless, which explains why these Gann's tools are generally misapplied by most Gann analysts, and are not appreciated as they should be.
The most comprehensive elaboration of W.D. Gann's most powerful technical trading tools.
It presents all of Gann's foundational mathematical and geometrical techniques expressed in his master calculators, angles, trend channels, squaring processes, pattern formations, spiral charts and much more, leading to the clear identification of profitable Trade Setups, important trend indications, and critical price/time culminations.
With 300 pages of detailed text, over 150 charts and diagrams, and 190 pages of the rarest Gann's supplementary material, we consider this 500 page treatise to be THE TEXTBOOK on Gann's geometrical techniques that no serious Gann analyst can afford to be without.
Not everyone has the skill, experience or desire to make forecasts of market phenomena, so they turn to experts who provide information to help anticipate market trends.
Our top analysts provide forecasts or reports for different markets to help traders understand market action and get educational guidance with trading or investments.
Law of Vibration
Research works or market systems based upon Gann’s theory of the Law of Vibration. Includes many scientific and esoteric work getting into harmonics, cycles, and cosmology as it relates to causative systems of order behind the markets. Primary reference and research section for those studying deep Gann analysis.
A quick insight into general conditions of the market can be had by synthesizing combinations of data as simple indicators giving an overview.
Such indicators are often based on diverse data, from astrological signals, like Scott's Astronomical Market Barometer or Bradley’s Siderograph, to whether a specific market is overbought or oversold.
Speculation is the trading of market positions for the sole purpose to make money.
It is a secondary industry from general investing in stocks or trading in commodities where individuals buy and sell with no fundamental interest in the underlying market.
We publish many works using this term, like Gann’s "Speculation a Profitable Profession".
A fundamental principle of Cosmological Economics is the interconnection between galaxies, solar systems, stars, and planets, along with their interactive influences.
For example, the rotation of our galaxy is responsible for temperature fluctuations on Earth as a result of cosmic ray variations as we rotate through the spiral arms.
Celestial Mechanics deals particularly with the motion of celestial bodies, especially the solar system, but also wider regions of cosmic space.
The subject explores the relationships and processes of heavenly bodies, examining cycles of time, motions of celestial bodies, and the influences between cosmic and local forces.
Esoteric and Pythagorean sciences love to play with the value and meaning of numbers, from the complex mathematical theories of the Platonists, via Fibonacci’s ideas, to number progressions, ratios, proportions, sequences, and chaos theory.
We specialize in the overlap of numerical and esoteric systems positing a more integrated cosmology.
Eric Penicka: Gann Science
The author correlates Gann’s exact words to the science of Gann’s day to illustrate his phrase “stocks are like atoms”. Offering a system of “mathematical points of force” governing the structure through which the market moves, the emerging science of Periodic Table atomic elements provides a system of order through which to forecast.
