Gann gave much attention to grain markets, and in particular Wheat, Corn and Soybeans. Gann had a Wheat chart back to 65 BC, which Baumring took back to 1200 BC.
Long historical data made Wheat a premier market to study long term cycles, and grain markets depend on weather, a secondary phenomenon which Gann also studied and analyzed.
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.
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 oneís losses while letting oneís profits run.
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.
Non-linear dynamic mathematics, known as Chaos Theory, seeks order in seeming random patterns, exploring subjects like Fractals, System Mechanics, Lorentz Attractors, and more.
Dr. Baumring originated the idea that Chaos theory provided insight into market phenomena, and later the great Mandelbrot tried to apply Chaos theory to the markets.
A branch of Chaos Theory, fractals are beautiful self-similar patterns mathematically generated from non-linear equations.
Fractals apply directly to financial market phenomena, and time-periodic market charts show that similar patterns permeate each time level.
Gann and Baumring saw common patterns foreshadowing coming events within consistent structure.
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 Gannís system of trading and market order.
Baumring found and elaborated the system of scientific cosmology at the root of Gannís Law of Vibration.
There is no other Gann teaching that gets close to the depth of Baumringís work.
The Institute of Cosmological Economics
A Specialist Bookstore & Research Institute Investigating the Theory of Financial Cosmology
Welcome & Brief Overview
Welcome to the Institute of Cosmological Economics (ICE). We are a financial research institute, a cosmological think tank, and a boutique publishing house with a global network of scholars and researchers engaged in the exploration and development of a system of knowledge we call Cosmological Economics.
At ICE, we perceive the financial markets as a non-random phenomenon influenced or controlled by numerous variables from time cycles to solar output. Our focus is upon understanding the scientific principles behind the mechanics of the markets. For those anxious to jump right into the theory, either scroll down a bit further, or go straight to our detailed primer on the subject, What is Cosmological Economics?
Our publishing imprint, Cosmological Economics, specializes in cutting-edge research into financial cosmology, conjoined with the development of proprietary trading systems and advanced market technologies based upon these insights. Our PDF catalog contains over 300 downloadable essential source works selected by our experts from the best of our 15,000 volume library.

Cosmological Economics is a new and cutting-edge scientific paradigm emerging from an age-old tradition of investigation into universal order, mathematics and natural science. By analyzing systems of ancient and alternative cosmology, the science of Cosmological Economics seeks to examine potential correlations between such seemingly disconnected events as financial market movements and natural phenomena, like cycles, solar influences, celestial mechanics and the underlying structure of space/time. Read our Introduction to Cosmological Economics.
The grandfather of this tradition in modern times is William D. Gann, one of the most famous market analysts and traders of all time. In 1909 Gann produced a 10,000% return in 1 month under the eye of an auditor and explained in the Ticker interview that he accomplished this using The Law of Vibration.
His original theory posited that the financial markets were controlled by mathematical laws which can be used to forecast future price movements through what is essentially a cosmological system based upon late 19th century principles of electro-magnetism, aether physics, chemistry, vibrational harmonics, and the forces, laws and cycles of nature, the sun and the solar system. Learn about our Origins & History.
The scientific theory upon which Gann’s system is based is more similar to that of his contemporaries, Nikola Tesla or John Keely, than to academic science both then and now, but with a different application to sociological patterns and mass psychology rather than physics and energy transmission.
Gann’s Law of Vibration has proven to be the precursor to new technologies and worldviews far ahead of his time. Current research into superstring theory, free energy, chaos theory, solar physics, galactic structure, antigravity and quantum mechanics have confirmed numerous insights discovered or used by Gann. These theories provide The Key to a lost, suppressed, or deeply hidden scientific system of universal order and causation that was known, in part, by both ancient civilizations and alternative researchers over 1000’s of years.
This system illustrates a direct correspondence between the forces and energies of the universe and the physiology and psychology of individuals and masses of humanity. This symbiotic interplay between man and cosmos reveals a more refined and subtle science of unification and interaction than is recognized by the current scientific paradigm.
Later researchers like Dr. Jerome Baumring who is one of the few known experts to have cracked Gann's system, updated and extended Gann’s theories after discovering wider correlations with DNA, molecular and atomic structure, plasma physics, hyperdimensional geometry, toroidal vortex systems, topology and numerical astrophysics. Dr. Baumring Investment Centre Gann Series in the 1980's opened up a new era focused upon the scientific exploration of the basis of Gann's Law of Vibration. Dr. Baumring's work provides the core foundation and inspiration for the Institute of Cosmological Economics, and is the official home, archive and resource for Dr. Baumring's work and teachings.
With Baumring's untimely passing in 1992, his approach to Gann research was pursued by a number of old and new students, but it was Dr. Lorrie Bennett who managed to next penetrate the veils and secrets hidden in Gann's work. Dr. Bennett was fortunate to have Baumring's Course Manuals, Lectures Notes and reference works for her two decade long study of the subject. And it is Dr. Bennett that we now have to thank for reviving the Baumring approach to Gann analysis and bringing it new life and new discoveries though her 4 Volume series on the Law of Vibration, our premier educational program here at ICE.

Translation Society Editions: Original Source Materials
Since the field of Cosmological Economics is based upon many historical and ancient systems and theories of the universe, we often discover important Key works that are 100’s or 1000’s of years old and from varied cultures and civilizations across the world, which have never been translated into English. We developed the Sacred Science Translation Society by pulling together a group of dedicated researchers who, along with some Angel donors, contributed to a fund to translate a collection of rare cosmological masterpieces into the English language for the first time. We have translated 10 important technical works so far, and have now created a 501(c)(3) charitable foundation, The Sacred Science Preservation Foundation, to continue this work on a non-profit basis with the help of grants and tax-deductible donations. For more information about the Translation Society, read our 2007 interview with the LA Times.
Programs & Software: Automating The Process
We offer a selection of trading software, tools and technology which we have carefully developed or selected to provide automation and essential technical tools to make market research more efficient and to automate much of the analysis and trading process. We often work with software developers to create proprietary tool modules for some of our more important courses which automate the complex techniques required by these advanced technical systems. We have carefully tested and reviewed this software to save our clients time in finding the most useful products within our field.
Subscription Information & Services
We are continuously developing new information and educational services through various newsletters, research journals, and subscription services, such as market analysis letters or forecasts. We currently provide yearly forecasts for different types of traders, from swing traders, to position traders, to longer term investors. These resources provide the results of our most advanced technologies as analytical reports or market forecasts for traders and investors who do not have the time or inclination to study and apply these complex tools themselves.
We have developed a number of informational and educational research and discussion forums. Some are Public and are open to registration for access by anyone. Others are Private and require ownership of the accompanying book or course upon which the forum is based. In our Private Forums, the authors of our courses interact with their students, answering questions and sharing research.
We have a diagram library that collates various important schematics, images, and diagrams from many of our most interesting books. Visual images often inspire new insights when related diagrams and images are displayed together. Explore here just for fun, or as a way to inspire new ideas and discover new books.

Gannís 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 Gannís commodity courses could miss out on many important techniques.
Our Commodioty Trading material provides valuable techniques with a scientific approach to analysis.
We maintain the largest collection of secondary works on Gann Theory in the world, publishing many books written by top Gann experts and experienced Gann traders.
We continually review work by other Gann experts, filtering out the highest quality material for inclusion in our catalog in order to satisfy the needs of our demanding clientele.
W.D. Gannís original work is a critical element for any Gann researcher, but many find Gannís deeper work challenging without help from well-seasoned analysts and traders.
We offer valuable secondary works presenting and developing Gannís 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.
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.
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.
Providing systems to train the mind in the retention of concepts, lists, ideas and the like, Memory Systems can simplify much modern school study involving memory.
We explore systems used by ancients and moderns to memorize entire books, lists of items, and concepts, as a sub-section of our accelerated and advanced systems of learning.
In the 1700-1800ís Natural Philosophers studied a wide range of scientific subjects, while not overly specializing in narrow and limited fields as scientists do today.
WD Gann espoused this more holistic system of science, where the different branches were more easily integrated and the grand vision of the scientific system was more interlinked.
