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.
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 Gannís "Speculation a Profitable Profession".
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.
Technical Analysis involves using technical tools and mathematical measurements in order to determine expected directional movements, reverses or changes in the market.
Advanced forms of this technique use mathematical and scientific or geometric tools to project market action or forecast future movement, looking at elements of price, time and trend.
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.

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.
Cosmological Economics in Theory & Practice
Roger Babson’s Forecasting Tools Predictive Techniques from the Man who Applied Newton’s Laws to the Financial Markets
Roger Babson—proponent of the application of natural law to financial forecasting—built a $50 million fortune before the mid 1900’s.
He developed a forecasting service based upon the principles of Sir Isaac Newton’s principle that, “for every action there is an equal and opposite reaction”.
Babson graduated from M.I.T. in 1898, and in 1907 first experienced the chaotic nature of markets by witnessing a massive stock market collapse, with the market falling from 111 to 60 in a very short period.
While seeking an industry to which he could apply himself that would give him the opportunity to produce “repeat” business, the field of financial information struck him as a useful endeavor, and he built a massive fortune providing such information through his company, Babson-United Investment Reports, which survived him by decades only to close in 2001 with the advent of Internet.
Aside from Newton’s theories of Gravity and Action/Reaction, two other books inspired Babson’s thought surrounding the markets, Samuel Benner's famous book, Benner’s Prophesies of Future Ups and Downs in Prices and a book by Henry Hall, How Money is Made in Securities Investments, (both foundational texts in Dr. Baumring’s Courses and reprinted in our catalog) that influenced his ideas regarding the financial markets. He was guided by a particular quote from Benner:
“There is a time in the price of certain products and commodities, which if taken by men at the advance leads to fortune, but if taken on the decline leads to bankruptcy and ruin.”
Babson’s Chart & The Normal Line
Working with an old colleague and teacher from M.I.T, Professor George Swain, who had originally given him the idea that Newton’s theories could be applied to financial markets, Babson developed a chart using the principle of action and reaction above and below a “normal line” which would help to analyze and predict financial market movement, famously called the Babson Chart.
In his analysis, a “normal line” is drawn through the chart, essentially representing the average curve of the market movement over an extended period of time. Periods when the market moved above this line were considered to be times of prosperity and periods when the market moved below it were times of recession or depression.
Dr. Jerome Baumring on Babson
Baumring used to discuss this chart in terms of “the area above the curve” and the “area beneath the curve”, explaining that according to Newton’s Law that every force must have an equal and opposite force counterbalancing it, Babson would calculate the sequential “areas above or beneath the curve” in reference to those of the past. In so doing Babson was able to forecast not only the times of prosperity or depression, but also the degree and length of those periods. In Babson’s autobiography, Actions and Reactions, he explains:
“Our contribution to the analyzing and forecasting of business conditions was in connection of the areas above and below this Normal line. Other systems of forecasting considered only the high and low of the charts, while our studies considered the areas of the charts. Based upon Newton’s Law of Action and Reaction, we assumed that after a depression area, equal in area to the preceding area of prosperity, had developed, another area of prosperity would be due. In making these studies we took cognizance primarily of the shape of the areas.”
The full details of Babson’s theories and applications of his Newtonian forecasting principles were never made public but were passed on, at least in part, to two of his associates George Marechal and Dr. Alan Andrews, both of similar fame in different circles, though not of as great fortune, as Babson became one of the richest men of the 20th century.
Dr. Andrews provides just about the only explanation of:
“The application to price fluctuations of Newton’s law of physics to which the late Roger Babson attributed his fortune of over $50,000,000. The Action and Reaction Rule states that these are equal and opposite.” But he continues by elaborating a set of tools and rules for this Newtonian analysis, describing “how drawing a single line will enable you to know where the price of any stock or any future is now headed and the probable time it will reach there.”
Andrews explains how Babson:
In gratitude to Newton, established the Gravity Research Foundation now located at New Boston, N.H., and went to England where he was able to buy Newton’s former home. He then transported the study where Newton made his discoveries to the Babson Business Institute, and you may visit and sit in this beautifully paneled room...
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.
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.
Weather has a strong influence on the potential prices of crops, so Astrological weather forecasting was of great interest to market analysts.
We publish George McCormack's Long Range Astro-weather Forecasting which is considered one of the better classics.
A.J. Pearce also wrote some sections on weather forecasting which are classics.
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.
Science of Vibration
W. D. Gann coined this term as a basis of his system of market forecasting. It explores theories of aether physics, vortex systems, and universal order as considered in the late 1800ís, incorporated with valuable elements taken from esoteric cosmology.
The theory posits that vibration underlies all phenomena, and that harmonic factors govern universal forces.
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.
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.
