Horse Racing & Gambling
Many traders develop an interest in betting on horse races, since astrological and numerological factors apply to both fields.
For example, sports involve data on event time and participant biographical data like birthdates.
Gann studied works by Sepharial, whose Arcana & Keys focused on astro-numerological horse race betting.
Position trading is an approach recommended by both Gann and Baumring, saying that there were maybe only about 4 good trades per year in any market. Markets would go into congestions of accumulation or distribution for years awaiting a new trend, and meanwhile one trades other markets. Gann taught the same principles on his higher level, saying that MOST money was always made in following a strong trend.

The Path of Least Resistance A Textbook of Geometrical Gann Analysis
The Underlying Wisdom & Philosophy of W. D. Gann Elegantly Encoded in the Master Charts
By Daniel T. Ferrera
"We use the square of odd and even numbers to get not only the proof of market movements, but the cause." - W. D. Gann
Intent of this Course
The intent of Ferrera's new course is to provide the most comprehensive elaboration of W.D. Gann's most powerful technical trading tools. It presents, with great precision, 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.
The material further elaborates for the first time ever, a number of Gann's most advanced geometrical tools and applications, such as the natural squares (even & odd) sub-cycle and the square root as an "inner square" time period, which were well hidden within Gann's different courses, but never explained, showing how to properly unify disparate tools into an integrated methodology according to Gann's very specific rules.
There has never been a Gann course that so clearly developed every detail of this element of his trading technology so as to be both easily comprehensible to newer Gann students and highly informative to the most seasoned Gann analysts, providing new insights that most will have never seen. It provides both practical and actionable trading signals and a valuable structural perspective to any market on any time frame.
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!
For 15 years, Daniel T. Ferrera has established himself as one of the leading experts and educators in the field of Gann Analysis. His particular talent lies in his ability to uncover and reverse engineer abstract and complicated analytical techniques and make them clear and easily applied for any analyst or trader. And yet, after these many years of ongoing study of Gann's tools and techniques, he continues to make new discoveries and to develop a deeper and more profound insight into Gann's technical applications. One thing he has discovered from his frequent readings of Gann's books and course materials is that Gann scattered pertinent information under a variety of seemingly unrelated topics and trading tools, or veiled critical pieces of information such that his techniques only become comprehensible and cohesive when these clues are collected and assimilated into their intended integrated methodologies.
For example, in Gann's private courses, Master Course for Stocks and Master Course for Commodities, both versions printed after 1940, he explains that "the basis of his forecasting method" is essentially mathematics and geometry stating:
"The basic principles are easy to learn and understand. No matter whether you use geometry, trigonometry, or calculus, you use the simple rules of arithmetic. You do only two things: You increase or decrease... The market moves only two ways, up and down. There are three dimensions which we know how to prove - width, length and height. We use three figures in geometry - the circle, the square, and the triangle. We get the square and triangle points of a circle to determine points of time, price and space resistance. We use the circle of 360 degrees to measure Time and Price."
But what does Gann really mean by such obscure utterances? And how exactly is one to apply these mathematical tools in modern markets? Gann's core course, which formed the backbone of all of these private courses, called The Basis of My Forecasting Method, provides his primary teachings on how to use geometrical angles in the markets, and these techniques are some of the best known and most applied of all of his ideas. But beyond these simple angular techniques that are played with (usually incorrectly) by all Gann explorers, there is a far deeper set of tools and relationships that a proper understanding of them leads to, revealing some of Gann's most secret and powerful technologies. A few such never before explained insights will be revealed in this course, providing a new inspiration and revelation of a further toolbox of techniques that have eluded even the most advanced Gann analysts for decades.
The Private Teachings Lead to Integrated Techniques
Most Gann students are aware that Gann left out critical elements and explanations from many of his foundational courses that when thoroughly understood provide refined adjustments and alternative variables. He only really explained these points to his private students, leaving public students to guess or try to figure out themselves the subtler and vague details of his techniques. A deep understanding of these subtle details not only provides a more accurate tool set for geometrically defining a market, but also is the key to tying together disparate techniques into a sequential series of tools based upon a common frame of reference. That core reference lies in the structure of the true 1x1 angle, something often misunderstood and miscalculated even by relatively advanced Gann analysts.
Gann left these deeper principles unclear and vague, and never explained or provided detailed examples of his variables without the signing of a non-disclosure agreement, as is shown by a quote from one of Gann's 1954 letters to a student, which stated: "Remember, you have signed an agreement not to reveal these rules and instructions to anyone!" Details explained in Gann's private instruction were foundational in unveiling a series of secret, advanced techniques that are cryptically referred to in Gann's courses, but which have never been openly explained in any modern literature or in any of Gann's public courses. One example of such a cryptic reference that many Gann students have wondered about is the tantalizing comment:
"We use the square of odd and even numbers to get not only the proof of market movements, but the cause."
Many have sought for an explanation of this 'square of odd and even numbers', but only fruitlessly, for it takes a deep and penetrating insight into a network of Gann principles to uncover these deeper, secret tools so critical in unifying Gann's geometrical principles into a more unified vision of market structure.
A further hurdle in deciphering the full context of Gann's tools and techniques is that he often scattered bits and pieces of explanation of a particular technique across disconnected books and courses. One piece may be found only in a rare stock course, while another section is found only in a particular commodity course, and yet another clue may be placed in an appendix to one of his books, or demonstrated graphically on a particular chart in a disconnected place. Yet all of these pieces may be required to be used together for a proper application of that particular tool. Further clues critical to unraveling the deeper puzzle of Gann are only to be found in correspondences with his private students, or rare communications with his peers.
In a recent review of the complete body of Gann's work, done while developing the contents of this course, one such private student letter which Ferrera had possessed for many years, and even published in his 2001 course, The Mysteries of Gann Analysis Unveiled!, inspired a new train of thought, leading to a significan breakthrough that allowed a number of before unrelated Gann puzzle pieces to be put back together. Following is a list of some of these key ideas explained in this course, many of which have never before been presented in any of the literature of which we are aware:
How to square price and time, as well as square the natural whole numbers (odd and even), along with their midpoints.
How following Gann's clue in his Egg course regarding angles relationship with money leads to the setting of prices scales based upon "The Basis of Money".
What prices scales to use beyond the commonly known 1x1 angle values presented in Gann's general public courses, and how to properly calculate them.
Once the proper scale is set, how to use the 1x1 angle to square or balance price with time.
How the natural squares (even & odd) sub-cycle would not be possible without understanding the Spiral chart (Square of 9).... expressing the square root as an "inner square" time period.
How to assimilate all of these elements together as a sequential methodology once the "basis of Gann's forecasting method" has been worked out based on properly scaling the 45 degree angle.
How Gann's price squaring techniques and master charts are NOT completely separate and independent methods, but are tied together through the geometric angle.
How the geometric angles can be connected to all the price time squaring techniques.
How the inner square root sub cycle and natural squares of numbers reveals unique market turning points.
Illustrating the true meaning of one of Gann's most obscure statements: "We use the square of odd and even numbers to get not only the proof of market movements, but the cause."
For the first time ever, the revelation and demonstration of these natural number squares and midpoints that Gann discussed but never gave a single example or even a decent clue.
Though most of these concepts were publicly referred by Gann in various places, still no one has synthesized this information into the new insights and techniques that Ferrera presents in this course. That is because only those who have studied every piece of Gann's work and gone over it again and again, sorting, organizing, studying, and applying these techniques, ever have a real chance of discovering the proper, integrated use of these valuable tools.
Ferrera is one of the few people who has dedicated this level of study and research to Gann's work, and through his ongoing application of these tools for two decades in his courses and yearly Outlook forecasts, Ferrera clarified and refined them to a level of highly practical use that every Gann analyst will be able to benefit from.
Trading Philosophy & Practice
Another issue which serves to confuse Gann students is the true nature of Gann's actual trading philosophy and practice. There is a confliction or paradox regarding Gann's trading approach which falls into three categories of possibility:
1.Gann was a very active swing trader and attempted to time and trade the majority of significant price fluctuations in each direction. (a more advanced version of Gann's swing trading system is presented in Ferrera's course, The Keys to Successful Speculation, and Timothy Walker's course How to Trade Like W. D. Gann gives a thorough analysis of Gann's swing following system over a period of 15 years.)
2. Gann primarily traded long term trends and utilized swing charting methods to add to his positions when the market reacted against the main trend. He said: "you will always make the most money following the main trend and playing the long swing. You can never make money jumping in and out of the market. The big money is always made by following the main trend." (This is what I call, "The Path of Least Resistance")
3.In what appears to some to be a contrast, Gann also presents this seeming contradiction:"the greatest opportunities for profits occur at the end of the great time cycles when advances or declines are very rapid and large profits can be made in a short period of time. and "When you are trading against the trend, wait until one of your rules gives you a definite indication of a buying or selling point at a bottom or top, where you can place close stop loss orders and never risk more than one-tenth of your capital on any one trade. Following the rules is what makes money."
With all of these seeming contradictions in approach advocated by Gann at different times and places, it is no surprise that people are confused about how and when to apply Gann's. On one hand he mostly says to trade WITH the main trend, but then says that the GREATEST opportunities for profits occur at the END of the great time cycles where you will find strong advances or declines, while with other techniques he seems to be clearly trading the shorter term swings within the market. This is why it is important to understand ALL of his rules and know when to apply what technique for what purpose.
Ferrera's course The Keys to Successful Speculation focuses on circumstance (1) and gives a thorough set of rules for account management, risk management, and advanced swing trading, while this course will illustrate how to use his mathematical rules to take advantage of strategies (2) and (3) mentioned above, where he clearly states you will always make the MOST money, and find the GREATEST opportunities for profits! And yet, these same mathematical and geometrical rules will also provide the critical foundation for any form of swing trading, as the mathematics underlying the markets are the key to understanding any form of market movement.
This new course, Ferrera's longest yet, includes 300 pages of detailed text and over 150 charts and diagrams, and will clarify how all of these tools work, pulling together these scattered pieces included in the 190 pages of supplement material, and reintegrating the private instructions that were never provided in any of the publicly available courses. He demonstrates how to practically apply each tool to identify valuable Trade Setups and powerful trading signals, which work as they were intended to work on any market and time frame a trader requires.
We consider this course to be THE TEXTBOOK of Gann Analysis, providing the most thorough and detailed presentation of W.D. Gann's complex mathematical and geometrical techniques available. It is totally accessible to new Gann students, while at the same time providing fresh insights, deeper layers of understanding, and unknown or misunderstood applications which will be of value to even the most seasoned Gann analyst and trader. It will provide a critical foundation for anyone seeking to master the most advanced of Gann's technical analysis tools, and will save students years that would be lost in trying to understand this material on their own.

Approaches to trading begin with choice of a time window.
Day or intraday trading focuses on short term swings, generally not holding positions overnight.
Although Gann, trading before the electroinc age, did not favor short term trading, his techniques do work on this level, since similar patterns exist on every time frame whether very small or very large.
Hasbrouck Space and Time
With rare research from the 1920’s through the 1970’s, the Hasbrouck Space-Time Archives studied market influence based on Solar Field Force.
Muriel Hasbrouck, aided by her husband Louis, researched solar phenomena, space weather and earthquakes in relation to market forecasting, producing a well-received forecasting letter for 30 years.
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.
Biographies of market masters, traders and historical figures in our field.
Science provides vital concepts for analyzing financial markets. Studies of momentum, moving averages, pattern formation, energy, speed, power, strength, impulse, gravity centers, electro-magnetism, solar phenomena, geomagnetic field influences, aether physics, vortex systems, vibration, and wave mechanics are of significant relevance.
In ancinet times architecture often incorporated esoteric knowledge almost lost today, but encoded secretly into many existing ancient monuments.
Geometric principles of divine proportion govern the complex forces underlying financial markets as well as architecture.
We have one of the largest collections of books on these subjects in the world.
There are a many important historical figures in the field of science and cosmology, like Pythagoras, Plato, Hermes, Bruno, or the misrepresented Isaac Newton.
The work of these outstanding men contributed a great deal to our extended fields of knowledge.
We specialise in books exploring the work of past masters who contributed so much.
Space and time can be seen as the primary elements which define the container of existence in which we all function. In the financial markets we could say that Price and Time are the two primary elements which define market movement and structure.
Price is Space in the financial market cosmos, and Gann himself even referred to Space in market charts.
