There are two quite different sides to Gann analysis, the deeply theoretical, seeking to understand the essence of the science behind Gann’s 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 Gann’s 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 Gann’s 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.
While W.D. Gann’s own original work is a critical element for any Gann researcher’s collection, most people will find Gann’s 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 Gann’s, without significant help by well-seasoned analysts and traders who have dedicated years to decoding and creating practical tools from Gann’s techniques. This is why there is a fundamental and valuable secondary market of works presenting and developing Gann’s 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.
W.D. Gann Works
We stock the complete collection of the works of W.D. Gann.
His private courses represent the most important of all of his writings, and go into much greater detail than the public book series. Our 6 Volume set of Gann’s Collected Writings comes with supplementary rare source materials. The most reliable set of Gann’s unadulterated and most important work available.
Dr. Jerome Baumring
The work of Dr. Baumring is the core inspiration upon which this website is based. He is the only known modern person to have fully cracked the code of WD Gann’s complete system of trading. Baumring rediscovered and elaborated the system of scientific cosmology behind Gann’s Law of Vibration. A long and detailed course, equivalent to a PhD in Gann Analysis.
The Law of Cause and Effect Creating a Planetary Price-Time Map Of Market Action Through Sympathetic Resonance
Breakthroughs in W. D. Gann's Price-Time Relationships
By Daniele Prandelli
Through the autumn and winter of 1948, W. D. Gann hand charted the May 1949 Soybean futures contract traded on the Chicago Board of Trade. Unlike much of Gann’s work, this chart survived and is publicly available from numerous sources. Many analysts have commented on this chart and a number of them have cited Gann’s use of planetary longitude in the chart, reproduced here:
On the same chart below, certain planetary lines have been highlighted, as defined by the color key below, showing exactly what each of these lines represents.
The Law of Cause and Effect: Creating a Planetary Price/Time Map of Market Action Through Sympathetic Resonance, by Italian author and trader, Daniele Prandelli, unravels the correct application of this most intriguing, yet least understood and properly applied principle of the great W. D. Gann, Planetary Price Lines. Many people have experimented with this technique, and a number of software programs have functions which produce variations on this application, yet few have been able to demonstrate the true potential of this powerful tool, due to a lack of a proper conversion factor which allows these Key natural forces to be usefully plotted on modern day charts with their extended price scales.
Gann never spoke in detail about this technique, and the few references we have to it appear only on some of his most complex and messy charts, having to be deciphered and reverse engineered by the astute Gann analyst in order to determine what he was actually doing. Unfortunately, these attempts have rarely provided a fully functional tool for modern traders, because there is a missing Key, without which one becomes overwhelmed with too much indecipherable information.
The Law of Cause and Effect solves the puzzle of Gann’s Planetary Price Line technique, through developing a mathematical offset factor, or conversion rate, through which functional and powerful planetary lines can be laid out on any chart in any market showing important price and time trigger points and support/resistance levels which the market moves between as if it were pushed and pulled by some kind of magnetic force.
Without the use of this conversion factor one can put Planetary Lines on charts all day long, but they do not give accurate or consistent results that one can count on. The endless variations between the aspect harmonics can overload a trader with so much information that it all becomes essentially useless, UNLESS one understands how to mathematically correlate these lines with each particular market! When this is properly done, the Planetary Lines serve as a kind of lattice or grid work which the market moves between in a predictable and tradable manner, giving one the ability to master the projection of price levels.
There are several courses that provide what we consider to be the best tools for projecting turning points in time, like Dr. Alexander Goulden’s Behind The Veil, which presents a set of geometric price and astrological time tools to project multiple overlapping future turning points on any market and any time frame, or Daniel Ferrera’s Wheels Within Wheels which creates long term cycle models giving excellent projections of turning points years in advance. These courses are essential for timing market turns and no serious trader should be without them, and those of you who have these works will also appreciate this new overlay of natural planetary time lines to intersect with the time projections and other price level tools that you use from these other courses.
In this context, The Law of Cause and Effect becomes an essential compliment all other timing methodologies, or other pricing techniques, through providing the addition of an overlay of powerful Planetary Price techniques which add an extra dimension to one’s market forecasts and trading indications, giving a direct another perspective in the correlation of price and time. Through the integration of such price and time insights, one is able to accomplish the great task of “Squaring Price and Time,” just as the great W. D. Gann was famous for doing.
However, even without the other popular courses mentioned above, The Law of Cause and Effect also presents a detailed 70 page section elaborating a number of important time cycles, which when coordinated with the price projections, give a trader the advantage of having both a price and time component to identify prospective trades. Many of these cycles were inspired by the work of George Bayer, who discovered them by an analysis of Bible Symbolism, and Mr. Prandelli presents a clear analysis of the sources and applications of these esoteric cycle teachings originally developed by George Bayer. The book contains forecasts and trades made in real-time while the book was being written, and includes future forecasted timing points for the coming year using these time cycles.
We also have available on our website two software programs which will produce Gann’s Planetary Lines as described in the course, Market Analyst 6 Astro Edition, and Ganntrader 3.1. Daniele Prandelli has also agreed to monitor an Online Discussion Forum to answer question about his course, which will also serve as an environment where traders can discuss research, analyze markets, and share insights with their peers. Scroll further down this page, for more information about Daniele Prandelli, an example of his Real-Time forecasts, a link to his Online Blog where those forecasts are documented, as well as a full Table of Contents.
Whatever trading tools you may use, the addition of the Gann’s Planetary Lines will provide a significantly deeper dimension of insight into the market action, giving you a clear insight into the True Cause of Market Reversals! We have no doubt that, once understood, no trader will ever again place a trade without consideration of these essential Planetary Price Lines…
We have created a page of Sample Charts which demonstrate the effects of the Planetary Lines on a few markets, showing variations in the applications using them as both Price and Time tools. Click here to view these Sample Charts.
I’ve bought lots of courses from you but I can tell you I like Prandelli’s the most. Beyond the theory, which is fascinating, this course is really close to everyday trading. It is not coming from trading examples many years in the past, it is coming from the present. It is acting and working in the current trading environment. That is why I found it to be the most valuable course for me from all the others I have bought from you.You know that I daytrade with a couple of hundred S&P500 lots, and beyond theory, it is very important that the course would be easily applicable for today’s environment. That could be the reason for this to be the most successful course. I ask you to push Daniele to come up with next course as soon as possible! Regards, JS, Budapest, Hungary
Whoa dude! Why is he revealing this? I wouldn't......... not for any money. Too cheap! It's insane! He's 27? Remarkable insight! Basically he's re-adjusting the planetary lines and re-scaling the whole system by this conversion factor. Genius! God bless Italy! I can also attest that it's a good companion to Alex Goulden’s material. For example, I was able to predict that little high in the S&P's to the day using cycles from both works.

I received the course and have read it three times. I find the work very interesting and enlightening... I think the planetary lines provide a dynamic tool for trading. So far I have been successful in the gold market with confidence. In two weeks I have been paid through gains for both the course and the software costs. I am very happy with the book. Thanks for your help. All the best, GL, Ontario, Canada
Wow! Just got the new book. I only glossed thru it but was amazed at how well it ties in with Goulden's work. I'm glad you recommended it. Also appreciate the effort you made in crossing the language barrier to even get it out. WW, Hillsborough, NJ
I have enjoyed Daniele’s work very much. The work on planetary price is great, and I’ve done some preliminary testing on the Australian Share Price Index futures which looks good. I’ll be interested in the Forum discussion on the time cycles from Bayer. I have a bit of trouble with Bayer as I don’t understand the why of some of the things he says yet. I must say that, given the language issues that you had to overcome, you have all done a superb job putting the course together. It is easy to read and follow. Daniele seems like an engaging person. Best wishes, TW, New South Wales, Australia
Very kind person there, with great studies, methinx. It is "wonderful" stuff! I've not mastered all of it by any stretch of the imagination, but it's the kind of stuff I already loved to study. Daniele is a wonderful individual by my estimations. Thanks for your work towards finding these fine topics and researchers. I'm loving seeing the correlations with my other studies too. Truly fascinating stuff to me.... and worthy of expansion... JC, Harrison, TN
I am in the process of reading the book for the second time! I really like it! I feel I understand the use of planetary price lines. I just don’t have the experience to know when I should ignore one price line over another. I understand the 360* and 180* are great for changes in trend, but I am not sure about the other angles. I really like the potential that this course presents though. JD, St. Louis, MO
My general impression is that the planetary lines stuff is clearly fascinating and touching upon things deeply rooted in the structure of reality - a clear gem, esp. these charts with extreme, emotional bottoms of the SPX spotted by the planetary lines to the point (or within a few points). Just these couple of charts make it all worth every penny spent on the course. MG, Krakow, Poland
About The Author
Daniele Prandelli is a young and dedicated market researcher and trader, whom we have known since he first acquired some Baumring materials on Gann analysis from us. He is an excellent example of the new generation of Gann analysts, who look to their elder researchers for direction, while simultaneously approaching the subject with an open mind, ready to discover a different approach when the materials presented to them do not provide them with the practical tools they need to become successful traders.
The insights provided in this course are not merely theoretical, but have been time-tested and proven in the markets for some years now, being documented since earlier this year on an Online Blog that Daniele has published for his Italian clients. Following is an example of one of his Real-Time forecasts posted on his blog and sent to us by email on April 17, 2010:
***Today is April 15, 2010, and I am exiting my long position in the S&P500 in preparation to enter a short position at what I think will be the top when the market reaches 1217. There are many factors pushing me to monitor the market in order to enter at this point based upon both time and price. I will now await my confirmation from the market. As soon as it hits 1216, I will take a short position with a stop-loss around 1224-1225.
[Ed. note: Daniele sent me an email on April 17 telling me about this trade. I watched as the market moved 5 days later to hit 1217.28, followed the next day by a final top of 1219.61 after which the market began a downtrend, 8 days later experiencing the most precipitous crash in market history, supposedly due to a trader or computer error of some kind, with the S&P falling almost 100 points from high to low, and the Dow over 1000 points. The day after the drop he sent me a chart showing the influence presented in this book which defined almost the exact bottom of the precipitous fall.]
Daniele has compiled the forecasts that he made on his blog since April 2010, and we have translated them for you so that you can have a sense of the techniques and abilities that you will be taught in this course.

This course, by Italian author and trader, Daniele Prandelli, unravels the correct application of this most intriguing, yet least understood and properly applied principle of the great W. D. Gann, Planetary Price Lines.
Many people have experimented with this technique, and a number of software programs have functions which produce variations on this application, yet few have been able to demonstrate the true potential of this powerful tool, due to a lack of a proper conversion factor which allows these Key natural forces to be usefully plotted on modern day charts with their extended price scales.
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 Gann’s 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 Gann’s and are quite powerful, but are slightly different from Gann’s, 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 1000’s 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.
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 Gann’s theories. For those seeking a solid, Master’s Degree level education in technical Gann analysis, we cannot recommend anything more highly than Ferrera’s works.
Ferrera has written detailed course on every angle of Gann’s work and provides a fast track into a deep understanding of each field of Gann’s work as well as advanced topics in technical analysis. He has works on cycles analysis, Gann’s Square of 9, Gann’s Mass Pressure Charts, one on risk management and Gann’s swing trading system, another on the details of Gann’s 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 Master’s degree in Gann and technical analysis.
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. However, even further, Baumring rediscovered and elaborated the system of scientific cosmology at the root of Gann’s Law of Vibration. There is absolutely no other Gann teaching that goes anywhere near as deep as Baumring’s 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. Baumring’s 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 100’s) of books required to develop the foundations needed to understand Gann’s 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 “Numerical Astrophysics” 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 “best of the best” 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 Gann’s 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! Baumring’s 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, “If you only are looking to make money, don’t bother studying Gann, it’s too difficult. Simply study swing trading systems, risk management and options strategies, and you can make all the money you want to make.” (Note: we have excellent books on these alternatives…) 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 Gann’s 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.
