Biographies of market masters, traders and historical figures in our field.
Analytical systems, techniques and tools based upon the use of geometry are significantly effective when applied to the analysis of market trends.
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 Gann’s "Speculation a Profitable Profession".
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.
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.
Leonardo Fibonacci is often cited as the discoverer of the Golden Ratio or Phi, but he was not the first, The Ancients called this the Divine Proportion and used it in their art and architecture.
The Golden Ratio is the governing principle of most natural forms, and the Divine Proportion is the most dominant mathematical form in the natural universe.

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.
Cosmological Economics in Theory & Practice
The Financial Markets as A Scientific Laboratory Analyzing the Markets Through the Lense of Scientific Method
Cosmological Economics uses the financial markets as a laboratory of experimentation to test out theories and techniques of analysis and forecasting. This practice serves to shed the light of science into the chaos of supposed randomness of financial phenomena. There is no better way to prove, once and for all, that some kind of predictable order governs the financial markets than to make predictions and produce forecasts, whether short or long term, based upon logical and consistent practices that are repeatable.
The greater the number of successful forecasts and predictions that can be demonstrated, the closer we come to proving that Random Walk Theory is merely a convenient explanation for an inability to perceive the order which lies behind the markets. If the principles of Cosmological Economics or the Law of Vibration are able to produce an above average result in forecasting, this alone proves there is some kind of probability that can be determined in advance. Any probability consistently performing significantly above 50% will demonstrate that there is a non-random component to market behavior. The higher this percentage, the better the proof of order.
Gann’s 92% success rate demonstrated in his Ticker Interview provides an almost perfect record, though not all of those trades were actual “forecasts”. He could just have had a very efficient system that had a high trading success rate. While this might not necessarily prove an underlying system of order, it does demonstrate the value of a well-designed trading strategy, so it still provides proof of the exceptional value of technical analysis when applied to trading systems.
Through the ongoing process testing and trial using techniques of forecasting and trading, if such connections and correlations as we have discussed can be repeatedly proven to exist and a working theory with laws and rules can be elaborated, then any scientific thinker must, if he is a true scientist, consider the potential reality of our entire hypothesis and the implications that evolve from that. Just as with Chaos Theory, if mathematical order can be shown to exist within what was previously considered to be chaotic noise, then we will have made a significant breakthrough in the science of economic and psychological theory.
What Are Financial Markets?
Taking a closer look at our economic “laboratory”, the financial markets, we must first consider exactly what the financial markets are? As mentioned earlier, Dr. Jerome Baumring, the most advanced proponent this field has known, defined a market as “a barometer of mass human psychology.” For what is a market other than the combined thoughts and feelings of the particular group of people who have some interest in a particular subset of the socioeconomic phenomena we call a market.
As explained, the thoughts and feelings of this mass public fluctuate according to a wide grouping of internal and external influences and considerations, causing people’s thoughts and feelings to behave in ways that reflectively cause the price of the market to move up, down or sideways correlated with the summation of the combined positive, negative or neutral thoughts and feelings about this particular financial entity.
Financial Markets as a Human Thought Form
In a sense, we could actually consider a market to be a mass human thought form. And in considering the nature of the possible forces which act upon the fluctuations of this mass human thought form, we discover that at the simplest level they all boil down to three simple variables: hope, fear and indecision. These three psychological variables account for the only three types of fluctuations we find in the markets: up, down and sideways, respectively.
Hope, Fear & Indecision
When people are hopeful, they feel confident and they buy, causing prices to go up. When they are fearful, they sell or even panic, in which case, we see markets go down. When they are indecisive they tend towards inaction, and similarly the market will remain the same moving sideways. So, in the simplest form of analysis, all market action can be boiled down to these three fundamental variables of hope, fear and indecision.
Simplifying the phenomenon this way begins to make our analysis simpler to understand and approach. Really we only must find something that will account for 3 specific forces, an upward force, a downward force, and equilibrating force, which need not even be something additional but the balancing of these two dynamic forces or energies.
Without going into much further detail here, one can see that the study of the markets when approached from the principle of physics and energy, can be considered as a sort of abstracted phenomenon that can be analyzed mathematically, geometrically, energetically, or in any other way that science uses to study and analyze any phenomena. And these are some of the tools and processes that are used in the analysis done through Cosmological Economics, using the markets as our alchemical laboratory.
But the goal is clear. Either predictions can be made within ranges of accuracy and consistency so as to show a greater probability than randomness, or they cannot. If such higher probabilities can be demonstrated, then we have potential theory of interest here which warrants further investigation. If results beyond chance cannot be attained, then the theory is likely false.
But even if the theory of market order is false, we are still left with the very useful and practical study of technical analysis, which provides the capability to produce highly efficient trading systems, like that which Gann used to generate a 92% success rate. A system like this would generate a fortune for any user, whether he was able to forecast or not. So in the end our research is thoroughly justified by either of two potential outcomes:
1. The financial markets are non-random and possess an ordering system behind them which can be understood and used to predict the markets, forcing a reevaluation and extension of scientific theory to include an unknown correlation between physical and socioeconomic phenomena. This would be a truly revolutionary discovery and scientific breakthrough!
2. The financial markets are truly random and there can be found no system of order behind them at least that is discernable using current theories and techniques of science and analysis available today. However, valuable trading systems can still be developed which take advantage of technical understanding of this random phenomena allowing for the development of strategies that produce above average performance, allowing for greater profitability by those who understand them.
There is a close correlation between Astrological Economics and Cosmological Economics. We have one of the largest collections of works on Financial Astrology (Astroeconomics) in the world.
These studies are very important in developing wider theories of causation, and our catalog contains most works of value written on the subject.
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.
In Ancient times, art was more than a form of entertainment or decoration, being a means of preserving various forms and levels of knowledge, including scientific principles.
A core element is called "The Canon", whereby through ratio, proportion, shape and symbolism, an entire system of universal knowledge can be encoded and preserved.
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.
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.
Harmonics and Music
The science of harmonics is one of the most important subjects in the esoteric and scientific traditions, positing that harmonic relationships of vibration govern the structure of the universe.
W.D. Gann called his system of market order the "Law of Vibration", and used principles of harmonics and vibration to predict trends in the financial markets.
