Many traders develop an interest in betting on horse races, since astrological and numerological factors apply to both fields.
For example, sports involve data on event time and participant biographical data like birthdates.
Gann studied works by Sepharial, whose Arcana & Keys focused on astro-numerological horse race betting.
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.
Technical analysis requires sophisticated measurements and calculations, so good software tools save time and allow wider scope.
We have carefully selected software for market analysis, geared towards Gann, geometric, astronomical, cycles or other related topics that we most use, including pre-programmed Gann and Astro tools.
Gann Reading List
In the 1940ís Gann published a 2-page list of about 90 Books that he stocked and sold to his students, known as "W. D. Gannís Recommended Reading List".
Each book contains some component of Gannís system of knowledge essential for piecing together his system.
Any one book may have one simple idea critical to Gann's perspective.
In Gannís day the two primary focuses for trading were stocks or commodities, but most principles taught for stock equally applied to commodities.
Without ignoring Gannís commodity work we provide works focusing on equity markets and individual stocks, or discussing the stock market, revealing valuable techniques with a scientific or esoteric perspective.
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.
Esoteric and Pythagorean sciences love to play with the value and meaning of numbers, from the complex mathematical theories of the Platonists, via Fibonacciís ideas, to number progressions, ratios, proportions, sequences, and chaos theory.
We specialize in the overlap of numerical and esoteric systems positing a more integrated cosmology.
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
Financial Astrology & The Golden Age of Technical Analysis Wall Street, Astrology, & the Birth of Technical Analysis
Donald Regan said –
“It’s common knowledge that a large percentage of Wall Street brokers use astrology.”
This is not a new phenomenon, but stretches back well over 100 years, where we find the great J. Pierpont Morgan, America’s first Billionaire, and the most powerful banker in history saying, “Millionaires don’t use astrology, billionaires do.”
His astrologer was Evangeline Adams, and there are rumors in our circles today that he had a secret astrological system that may still exist in private hands.
This field of esoteric financial analysis and forecasting actually represents one of the oldest branches of market analysis that is known, having its origins back in the late 1800’s and its heyday in the early to mid-20th century. However, the essence of the system of Cosmological Economics is not limited to just explorations of a single subject as narrow and limited as financial astrology. While that may be considered a subset of this wider scientific exploration, the field of Technical Analysis would be a better representation of the wider subject matter that is studied in our tradition when it comes to technical application to financial market analysis, forecasting and trading.
The Golden Age of Technical Analysis
In this context, we do still look back to older times for our most valuable resources, particular to a period referred to as The Golden Age of Technical Analysis (1860 - 1960). This was the time during which the greatest developments in the field of technical analysis and market forecasting were accomplished. Since then, most modern market knowledge has been merely a repetition or reworking of past theories and techniques developed during this critical period.
Most modern texts and techniques generally lack the rigor and sophistication of the past applications developed by those considered to be the Old Masters.
It was during this time that the great market technicians like Samuel Benner, W. D. Gann, Roger Babson, R. N. Elliot, George Bayer, Nikolai Kondratieff, Edward R. Dewey, George Marechal, Alan Andrews, William Garrett and numerous others developed the foundational theories and techniques of financial market analysis and forecasting. These greats produced the first and best documented forecasts and models which provide the core evidence of the power and effectiveness of this tradition over 150 years.
Interestingly, unlike most modern technology, this field has not advanced significantly over time, but similarly to the classical arts and music had degenerated in the face of a faster moving, more superficial and distracted world. In fact, the greatest market forecasters and technicians existed closer to the beginning of the modern era than the end.
For this reason, there has remained a serious and scholarly niche group of technical analysts and traders who look primarily to the older works of the most famous masters of the past for deeper insights into market analysis and forecasting that have been long lost by the professional industry of today. This group has kept alive an active market for rare and advanced financial analysis and trading courses and systems, in seeking an advantage in knowledge and skill over their contemporary peers.
It is exactly this kind of rare and proprietary material that we specialize in at the Institute of Cosmological Economics. We have compiled what is probably the best collection of the most important works in this field available anywhere in the world. It is our ongoing mission to both seek out these kinds of lost resources from past times, and to represent new authors who have made significant discoveries and breakthroughs in this field. We then either publish this old or new material ourselves, or after review and verification of its quality, include the best of other publisher’s material in our catalog. In this way, we have developed the closest thing to a “peer reviewed” collection of both historical and modern works within this field.
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 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.
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.
Baumring Science List
In the 1980ís Dr. Jerome Baumring, created an advanced course on the scientific cosmological system behind Gannís Law of Vibration, including over 100 important works.
These ranged from core works that Gann himself studied relating to Natural Science and Philosophy, to valuable works in alternative or lesser known scientific traditions.
The origin of modern chemistry goes back to the mysterious science of Alchemy, which originated in Ancient Egypt, know to the Arabs as Kemi, the Black Lands.
Alchemical experiments with chemicals and compounds led to the modern science of chemistry, although Alchemy incorporates spiritual and esoteric elements missing from chemistry.
Much science from the 1800ís postulated a 4th Dimension, often considered to represent Time, in relationship to 3-Dimensional space.
Gann himself posited the idea of space itself being a 4th dimension in the markets, which requires the Gann theorist to become familiar with complex and often metaphysical theories of extended dimensionality.
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.
Dr Lorrie V. Bennett
Dr. Lorrie V. Bennett is a master of the Law of Vibration and a true expert on the science of the great W.D. Gann.
