Gann’s courses were generally categorized as either stock or commodity focused, but all principles taught for stock would equally apply to commodities. Stock traders who ignored Gann’s commodity courses could miss out on many important techniques.
Our Commodioty Trading material provides valuable techniques with a scientific approach to analysis.
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 stock and commodity markets have a history stretching over millennia, from the Bible to the present day, furnishing data on sun spots, planetary changes, weather cycles, volcanoes, earthquakes, solar variances, and other influences on financial markets.
Gann charted Wheat back to 65 BC and Baumring took this back to 1200 BC.
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.
Kayser, the greatest scholar of harmonic science, was far ahead of his time, penetrating the depths of ancient esoteric Pythagorean Tradition to present a universal Law of Vibration.
His "Textbook of Harmonics" provides the most valuable insight into Gann’s Law of Vibration of any resource.
We have so far translated four of his works into English.
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.
Gordon Robert’s course shows how to reproduce the legendary Returns of W.D Gann through leveraged position trading. A how to book that provides the keys toobtaining large returns from low risk investments. Find trades with an average risk:reward ratio of 1:10. Minimum return of 500% per trade to maximum returns exceeding 5000%.
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.
Gordon Roberts’ Market Vibrations: Trade Setups, Results & Reviews
By “Gordon Roberts”
“Prove all things and hold fast to that which is good…” W.D. Gann (citing The Bible)
Once upon a time, a man uttered a phrase that went something like, “May you live in interesting times.” He didn’t define what is and isn’t interesting. His wish was probably a curse but it is “interesting” all the same. I propose that all times are interesting in some way and to someone. For traders, however, some times are very much more interesting than others.
Another man said, “Practice makes perfect.” He didn’t tell the whole story either. Surely he realized only perfect practice makes perfect. If a trader practices with poor methods or techniques, they end up with a mastery of poor methods and techniques. They probably end up poorer for the experience too.
As traders, we get to make choices regarding which methods and techniques we study. We get to decide if we keep a method as being valuable or we get to cast it aside as worthless. For example, not many people will choose the trading methodologies of Bernie Madoff for their thesis. However, we can “practice” things the great masters of the past instructed us to “practice”.
Many of us become students of W.D. Gann (he was/is a fascinating man). But there is a problem that comes with proper study of Mr. Gann’s many works. It literally takes decades to study his decades of study. That’s logical I suppose. He almost requires it of his students. But… we can boil his teachings down into less time consuming studies.
Mr. Gann told us he used “natural laws”. I believe he showed us that markets tend to “vibrate”. In my book Market Vibrations, I show modern-day examples of his teachings at work. 60 years past his death, his teachings still echo into new reality as time passes. He said they would. I’ve proven him to be correct. He spoke of a “Law of Vibration”. The fact is that most everything vibrates. From violin strings to cellphone communications, from magnets to bean prices to atomic hydrogen, from rocks to galaxies… vibrations are EVERYWHERE/EVERYTHING. Any true “law” should cover everything.
Trade Setup Review & Trading Results
The following brief examples give you a feeling for the kinds of opportunities we end up hunting when we start doing some of the things Mr. Gann told us to do. The following trades are either setups that were watched and analyzed in real time and then either paper traded in the case of some of the older examples, or actually traded as is the case with most of these. They provide examples of the kinds of trades my course will teach you to find and trade. This is just a small collection of samples from the last few years. Mr. Stewart from the Institute watched me trade many of these positions and can verify these trades.
You may be thinking, "Yeah, right! You can't target the all-time highs for short trades!" But that really is the goal for this particular technique. I will demonstrate that Mr. Gann did target trading short at all-time commodity market highs, and show you exactly how to do it. You might think that Mr. Gann wouldn't trade short against a major bull trend, but this is right out of Mr. Gann's instructions, if you do the work to prove it. I will provide additional examples of targeting all-time-high prices for diverse markets like other grains, metals, and meats to name a few. Mr. Gann's same mathematical approach approximated all of the all-time-highs in the past decade.
Of course, all-time-highs don't occur just every day. Accordingly, I will also demonstrate how Mr. Gann instructs us to target significant market lows. Again, as crazy as it sounds, this is not "cherry picking". This is Gann-inspired market analysis that has worked for decades in the Soybean market and other commodity markets. And even when we are not seeking all-time highs or lows, there are many excellent trading opportunities to target significant intermediate term swings, just as Gann did in the past, where very successful campaigns can be traded for great profit. We will also explore this in good detail within the course.
I will also show that Mr. Gann's techniques can work just as well in the equity markets. The course even contains brief forays into Forex Currencies and Bonds. Markets are markets, it matters not what you trade, as long as your analysis proves to you that a tradable move is expected.
Here are some equity examples for popular stocks:
Another interesting aspect of the course is that the rules advocate trading only when we have a reasonable expectation of achieving a minimum 500% profit. There is a method to that madness and the reasoning is well explained. This is reminiscent of teachings from Jerome Baumring as well.
Please know that Mr. Gann's and my own rules were devised with the absolute certainty that some trades will be losers. The rules also are built with the knowledge that humans generally shouldn't try trading even though they think they can. I will show you how to think about the rules and your future trading decisions. In fact, this is the "market primer" which at heart I wrote for my own son.
When my new book was released it included a number of market setups that I was watching and preparing to trade, all of which were shared with the first purchasers of my book, since they were included in the book. Since then a number of these trades have taken off and earned us some profits, enough profits, in fact, to have paid for the entry cost of my book for those who played along and followed these clear signals. In the Online Forum for the book, we discussed each of these trades and their setups, so that people can learn, hands on, how to evaluate potential trades.
At the time, I included a trading signal for Soy Beans. Below, I resubmit that Soy Bean chart from the initial sample marketing materials posted online in March. I provided this Bean setup in real-time because I’m a swell guy… and I had a purpose.
It was my hope that we could “circle back” to this at some future date and show you that I’m not making this stuff up on the fly. This was a public domain trading setup posted online that coincided with the book’s release.
Beans were basing and allowing accumulation to occur. They were also at buying points per my research into Mr. Gann’s work. Mr. Gann tells us how to think about these things. We need to be patient sorts for these types of long-term trading thoughts.
I never know what the markets will do. However, per Mr. Gann’s teachings, I had pretty decent odds to make a nice profit versus the risk I’d take for embarking upon a long Soybean trade. That’s all explained in the book. It’s simple stuff that you might consider using for yourself. I “concentrate” a very few of Mr. Gann’s simplest teachings into a stew for you to consume.
Here’s the updated bean chart as of 6/9/2016. We’ve just passed Mr. Gann’s Birthday. I try to honor Mr. Gann throughout the year but his birthday is special. It was also D-Day of World War II. But that’s beside the point here. For Beans, from the low I identified to the recent high has been around $14,800 (34%) per contract, if you were trading the commodity contracts.
I generally advocate attempting to avoid trading the commodity contracts while attempting to grow my trading leverage a bit with other “vehicles” like options. Options also help me control my risks but they can be illiquid markets.
In those same marketing materials, we also posted a recent buy candidate for Chipotle Mexican Grill (CMG). Here is that original chart posted on the same page online in March…
The next chart is from 6/10/2016. CMG has run up nicely and you’d have needed to manage your trade to protect profits. From the low to the high, the market advanced almost 36%. That’s not a bad return for 8 weeks, and using options as I do, the leverage provided a nice profit.
Another “decision point” is almost upon us. We could have a “double bottom” here. Honestly, Mr. Gann’s teachings have me happy to end up either long or short in this situation. Whatever the direction, odds favor a nicely tradable move. My book explains how to approach such a trading point and to read it as a specific setup, providing a clear strategy to take advantage of the next move whichever way it goes.
In the same initial marketing materials, we also included an Apache Corporation (APA) chart. It didn’t elaborate publicly that we should have already been thinking about long trades, but it has been further discussed in our Online Web Forum. However, anybody who has read my book should have been thinking about the trading setup at the lows.
In the book, we actually discussed Crude Oil in detail. APA is a “proxy” whereby we could hunt an equity market versus the commodity market. You get to be your own decision-maker to hunt your own opportunities. Here’s the updated chart with an 85% increase from low price to high price (thus far)…
I also spoke of BABA. That’s the Chinese ALIBABA. On that chart I also didn’t provide the specifics publicly. But I was providing hints. BABA was interesting or it wouldn’t have been in the marketing materials.
Here’s the updated chart:
From bottom price to top price (thus far), that’s around a 45% increase. If this one convincingly breaks upward, it might present another interesting point to enter a long trade.
Here’s is what has been happening with Crude Oil. I was long Crude from near the bottom, though this was before the book was released. Finally, it has reacted in accordance with Mr. Gann’s teachings. From low to high is a 52% increase so far. This setup was also covered in pretty good detail in the book for a few reasons.
Those are a few examples that demonstrate that the market is ripe with opportunity to make profits for the aware trader who knows what to look for. All of these trades (and more) were clearly on my radar a few months back, and have added profits to my account. Someone who had purchased my book a few months back could have already paid for its full cost, potentially many times over by now.
Please note that some trades will lose. That’s part of reality. You need to approach losses like they are a business expense. First, you have to define your business properly. Expenses are a lesser part of profits. Losses are needed to help you understand gains.
Don’t try to kick your way through a dark room filled with bedposts and ottomans. Markets are designed to break toes that way. Television and news and subscription services probably don’t serve you well. They make their money off you trying to trade rather than them trading. Think about it. You need to learn to make your own decisions.
You can learn some very simple things. You can then try to build them into your psyche. It’s up to you. It really is your choice. I cannot guarantee your success. Mr. Gann said that these proper techniques and strategies pretty much ensure success. However, reality says that it really is up to you and your ability to play “the game”.
I should note that my presentation above used the absolute top and bottom prices. Those are THEORETICAL values for trades. You’ll have to make your own entries and exits for whatever market you choose to trade. Your returns and my returns will be lower than those values if we’re following the rules.
I struggle to find the best trade for each trading situation. I can hunt “home run” trades. They are out there to be found… all the time. However, they aren’t what I consider to be the wiser trades. After all, we can also hunt the types of market vibrations that I’ve highlighted here. If you ponder the potential, it really can be pretty hard to lose money if you catch 25%-85% market moves a few times per year… The charts above demonstrate that such returns can be found in only a few months, if one knows where and how to look.
We will continue to post further updates of these trades and others that we have given in the book or the Online Forum as they progress, since many of them are still in progress, being longer term trades.
This course provides a trading strategy that allows for large returns from low risk investments.
The strategy employs straight forward analytical techniques explained in Gann’s How to How to Make Profits in Commodities to identify high value trade setups which can be employed using highly leveraged options strategies to generate large but safe returns.
It does not require any prior Gann knowledge or any past trading experience and can be easily understood and applied by any trader, new or seasoned, to great effect with very little time or difficulty.
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.
Baumring Reading List
Dr. Baumring's reading lists were very comprehensive, covering all areas of the markets, sciences and metaphysical fields.
Baumring was an intensive scholar who read 1800 words a minute and had a photographic memory, thus extendinghis scope.
Baumring's 10,000 volume library included around 500 books which he saw as core information.
Gann Reading List
In the 1940’s Gann published a 2-page list of about 90 Books that he stocked and sold to his students, known as "W. D. Gann’s Recommended Reading List".
Each book contains some component of Gann’s system of knowledge essential for piecing together his system.
Any one book may have one simple idea critical to Gann's perspective.
Among professional traders, risk management is understood to be the absolutely most fundamental element leading to successful trading, because with proper risk management one can use randomly generated signals and still trade successfully.
This is done by limiting one’s losses while letting one’s profits run.
Swing Trading works with short to intermediate term swings, usually with time periods from a few days to weeks, following a general changing trend and trading in each direction.
Most systems consider position reversal, and try to trade short and long as the market changes direction.
Gann taught swing trading first, with its relatively easy methodology.
Since Plato the principle of Aether, a subtle universal plenum filling space and responsible for propagating forces and energies, along with Earth, Air, Fire and Water, has been a core universal element.
Until the late 19th century, scientists, including Einstein, and most cosmological systems, incorporated the principle of Aether as being fundamental.
