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.
Options provide many very useful benefits, like locking in the limit of your risk, since you can never lose more than the cost of the option you purchase.
With the current volatility of the market and overnight trading, many traders are afraid to hold positions overnight, but options can give a safe way to hold open positions without fear of extreme volatility.
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.
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.
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.
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
Dr. Jerome Baumring’s Circular Teaching Method To Recreate the Process of Discovery Within the Mind of his Students
Baumring the Guide
Dr. Baumring taught using a methodology unlike those of our modern educational systems. He believed that in order for knowledge to take root and reside in the mind as inherent knowing, an individual cannot just have information told to him, but must actually recreate the process of discovery within himself. Jerry would regularly comment, “I am merely the Sherpa (guide, way-shower), you must walk the path yourself”. This attitude is based upon the Christic principle he often quoted of “Give a man a fish and you feed him for a day; teach a man to fish and you feed him for a lifetime”.
He made it very clear that even if he were to explain the entire process outright, it would be of no avail, for without the catalyzing power of insight attained through personal discovery, the student would be unable to digest and integrate the principles. Now this does not mean, as many students and Gann seekers fear, that it takes some form of “Divine Grace” or “Mystical Revelation” to perceive the true workings of the market. Rather the process of study and research develops an insight into the necessary principles of cause and effect, natural law and its manifestation in reality, which are absolute prerequisites for an integrated understanding and application.
His Principle of Circular Teaching
Baumring’s educational methodology focused upon a principle that he called circular teaching, wherein the fundamental principles of the entire theory were presented in skeletal form at the outset of the curriculum, whether in the seminar series or with his private students. Each progressive seminar would then continue to fill in pieces of the skeleton, providing further details, elaborations progressed.
In this way, the entire vision or perspective was presented at the outset, so that a particularly adept or intelligent student could follow that initial lead, seeing the full context and direction that he needed to pursue, right from the start. Each progressive level of teaching continuously circled back through similar material, expanding the level of understanding and application until the student had mastered the every element of the collection of principles required for a full understanding of the system. Eventually, when the student has sufficiently mastered these specific technical components that Baumring directed them to study through his Course Manuals and explanations, the pieces would progressively interconnect until the mechanics of the entire system was fully revealed.
Noteworthy Baumring Students
There were a number of students of Dr. Baumring’s who have continued on to become well known traders, teachers or writes themselves, such as Bradley Cowan, whose interesting works are primarily a regurgitation of Baumring’s theories, though often reframed or redirected to improper conclusions from those Baumring would have made. Or Robert Miner, who has developed excellent trading material and software, and wrote many years ago:
“I have been lucky. Over a decade ago my most influential teacher of market analysis and trading, Dr Jerome Baumring, who has since passed away, taught me to not only look at the market from radical new perspectives, but to prove everything out myself.”
Brad Swancoat and Ed Kasanjian, who developed Nature’s Pulse cycle software back in the 1980’s were both Baumring students, along with others who have made significant breakthroughs in financial research, but who choose to remain anonymous. Catalin Plapcianu is one of the younger generation who did not have the opportunity to meet Baumring, but who followed his guidance through his Gann Harmony Seminars leading him to rediscover some of Baumring’s most foundational theories of multi-dimensional, space-time phenomena.
Dr. Lorrie V. Bennett is one of the best examples of someone who stood on the shoulders of Gann and Baumring, cracked the code of Gann's system, and is no creating a 4 Volume Series on the Law of Vibration, covering the Patterns behind caused by the wave mechanics, then the Numbers hidden in Gann's text, to be followed by her master work, Planets, on Gann's System on astrology in Tunnel Through the Air, and to be closed by her work on Geometry which will pull all the wide pieces together.
There are hundreds more who have studied Baumring’s course series over the last 30 years since his passing, some who have rediscovered Ganns’ system as a result, and whom we continually encourage to share their insights and technology with our clientele.
Jerry’s Quirky Personality
On a personal note, no mention of Jerry Baumring, known as Jerry to his students and friends, is complete without a few comments about his delightfully eccentric character. Jerry was the type of person who naturally used words such as “happenstance”, “prestidigitation” and “isness”. He was a master mechanic, and it would not be uncommon for a student to arrive for a lesson only to find him elbow and undershirt deep in grease with his car disassembled with the pieces spread across the parking lot. He drove an old Cougar and an old Mustang, and when asked why he didn’t buy himself a decent car, he guffawed saying that the older cars were built with much greater quality than the newer ones, which contained unfixable computers and plastic parts, whereas he had built his cars with his own hands.
He had a similar mechanical fetish for his photocopy machines. In 1986 copy machines did not have simple components like today, and had to be taken apart in dozens of pieces to be cleaned. Many a night Jerry could be found past midnight with the copy machine in pieces all over the room. When suggested that he was wasting his time performing tasks any technician could do, he would reply with unexpected responses such as that by doing this work himself he had discovered that the gold wire used in the copy mechanism was based upon a similar principle used in the sarcophagus of the Great Pyramid to perform teleportation by the projection of plasma energy through the crystalline capstone.
Jerry’s primary form of R&R was “book hunting” all over the world. He would climb ladders and crawl on filthy floors digging into the deepest, darkest, spider-infested corners, and would almost miraculously always come up with some jewel everyone else had missed, as if he had 6th sense leading him to these hidden treasures. He was a spontaneous rather than a methodical book collector. He would stop at a garage sale and find some amazing first edition for a dollar while also buying the broken toaster for ten cents because the power cord was worth two dollars. As he toted his booty, toaster under one arm, book open in the other hand, upon mention that buying the toaster seemed silly, he would reply that it was a 2,000% return on his investment, and that didn’t include the book.
From the last anecdote it is not difficult to understand the continual state of disarray within his house and office. One would pull out a chair from his book-piled dining room table, looking for a seat, only to find the chair laden with too many books to inconspicuously move so as to sit down. He hid his best books in his dresser with the rarest beneath his underwear. In the corner next to his side of the bed was a 3 foot high by 3 foot deep waterfall of books deposited there after his bedtime reading. His office was in a continual state of disheveled flux due to the massive amount of books and information continually being processed through it.
His Crazy Working Hours
Dr. Baumring’s work hours ranged between the hours of 8:00 AM to 4:00 AM Monday through Sunday, structured according to a completely spontaneous and unpredictable schedule. As a private student one could expect regular phone calls between 1-4 AM, and lessons scheduled for 8:00 AM would often not begin until past midnight, or after being postponed for days would occur in a distant hotel room while on a book hunting expedition. Strangely enough, the best lessons and deepest insights often occurred on the most unlikely of such occasions. Private students generally chewed through about 100 books a year, always finding or being given better and better material as they were ready for it. There is no student of Dr. Baumring’s who does not acknowledge the profound impact he has had upon their understanding of the universe.
For 20 years Dan Ferrera has been one of our most respected market analysts, with a Masterís Degree level of education in technical Gann analysis. One of the clearest interpreters of Gann, he produced his own advanced work of technical analysis, The Spirals of Growth & Decay, prior to writing detailed courses on every angle of Gannís work
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.
Analytical systems, techniques and tools based upon the use of geometry are significantly effective when applied to the analysis of market trends.
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.
Baumring Financial List
Dr. Baumring compiled long reading lists even more comprehensive than Gann's, comprising works having key elements directly applicable to Gann Theory and Cosmological Economics.
Any student wanting to explore particular fields in depth will find Baumringís lists to be indispensable, since they over important but unfamiliar topics.
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.
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.
