There are two quite different sides to Gann analysis, the deeply theoretical, seeking to understand the essence of the science behind Gannís market theory, the Law of Vibration, and the outright practical, looking for working tools and techniques that will help with applied trading. Though our greatest interest is in the cosmological theory behind Gannís work, and the universe in general, we also specialize on the practical tools that traders need to specifically analyze and trade the markets. Some Gann experts excel at theory, while others are simply practical traders who are less focused on ideas in deference to trading techniques. This category will specifically focus upon the books and courses that provide very specific and applied tools from Gannís toolbox used for real time trading. Some may explore deeper theoretical principles and some may just focus on pure trading tools, but this category will give working techniques to better fill the arsenal of any trader. We often recommend that new Gann students focus first on developing a practical trading ability, so that they can fund their future research with profits from their trades, and then also apply new insights from their theoretical study to their practical trading as they advance. This section will help to identify those most practical tools.
While W.D. Gannís own original work is a critical element for any Gann researcherís collection, most people will find Gannís work to be extremely vague, complicated and difficult to penetrate on their own. In our experience, it can take many years, if not decades for the ordinary analyst to, by themselves, digest and apply the deeper techniques of Gannís, without significant help by well-seasoned analysts and traders who have dedicated years to decoding and creating practical tools from Gannís techniques. This is why there is a fundamental and valuable secondary market of works presenting and developing Gannís ideas, and making them accessible to any trader. We believe that the best teachers in this field are not competitors, but are fellow contributors to an ongoing field of research, and that their work is mutually supportive and will provide expanded insights when more material is understood.
We maintain the largest collection of secondary works on Gann Theory of anyone in the field. Many of these books we publish ourselves, and are written by top Gann experts and experienced Gann traders from across the world. However, we also review works written by other Gann experts across the field, and add to our catalog any material we consider to be of high quality and importance from the global community of Gann analysts. With our experience in the field, we are well qualified and to provide a peer review of these materials, so as to filter out the best quality work from that of a lower caliber, and then present these to our clientele who demand the highest standards. So any book or course that you find in this catalog can generally be considered to be of the upper echelon of works on Gann analysis. We have new authors submit their research to us ongoingly, so that we are always adding new items to our catalog with fresh insights, alternative techniques or new ideas. In this way we are able to save our clients significant wasted funds in exploring the territory at their own cost.
W.D. Gann Works
We stock the complete collection of the works of W.D. Gann.
His private courses represent the most important of all of his writings, and go into much greater detail than the public book series. Our 6 Volume set of Gann’s Collected Writings comes with supplementary rare source materials. The most reliable set of Gann’s unadulterated and most important work available.
Dr. Jerome Baumring
The work of Dr. Baumring is the core inspiration upon which this website is based. He is the only known modern person to have fully cracked the code of WD Gann’s complete system of trading. Baumring rediscovered and elaborated the system of scientific cosmology behind Gann’s Law of Vibration. A long and detailed course, equivalent to a PhD in Gann Analysis.
Cosmological Economics in Theory & Practice
Simultaneity & the Multidimensionality of Time The Correlation of Price/Time & Space/Time
Explorations of abstract universal phenomena such as Emanational Cosmology quickly lead us into considerations of the fundamental “container” or “ground” of the reality itself, the nature of space and time and their relationship to each other.
From here it is not a far leap before we find ourselves inveigled within Einstein’s principles of Relativity, both Special and General. General Relativity addresses the structure of spacetime and its relationship to gravity, while Special Relativity address the relationship of time from the perspective of different observers at different perspectives moving at different relative speeds.
The Multidimensionality of Financial Markets
Just as spacetime is the primary component of all physical reality, in the markets, Price/Time similarly defines the container for the reality of all market action, so that Price/Time and Space/Time are actually the same, since the exact same mathematical laws control all energetic formations within both realms. And since space/time is multidimensional, likewise must pricetime be similarly multidimensional, since the laws of the universe must remain constant across all fields.
There is, however, another step in this consideration of time that quickly becomes even more mind-bending, yet begins to lay the groundwork for why it may be possible to predict the markets. This concept is the multidimensionality of time. Such ideas are not uncommon within the realms of modern physics and mathematics. In fact, even Einstein affirmed that his Theory of Relativity did not in any way imply a single direction of time, and that time could just as realistically run backwards as forwards in his system. The mere possibility of time being able to run backwards brings an entirely new consideration to the nature of the subject.
Just as there are three dimensions of space in our natural perception, it is equally possible that there may be three dimensions of time, or even more dimensions of both space and time for that matter, as many systems of cosmology posit, with the five most popular Superstring theories requiring 10 dimensions to exist.
The possibility of multidimensionality of time in which it would be possible to move in any direction within this simultaneous reality, just as in space we can choose to move in any direction is a valid and regular consideration in the realm of theoretical physics. Many theories of physics posit the idea of time travel through hyperdimensional wormholes and the like.
It is also proposed in systems of physics, mathematics and philosophy that there may actually exist a simultaneity of time. This would be characterized as some sort of singularity point in which the multiple dimensions of time collapse into a single dimension in which all time exists in a single point or instant, simultaneously occurring without requiring a liner scale to play itself out.
This would mean that all things that have ever happened and ever will happen are already existent within this simultaneous dimension. It is only our limited consciousness or capacity due to our existence upon this particular plane that provides us with a linear perception of time, rather than an instantaneous perception of it.
Mozart’s Symphony of Concurrence
Mozart actually claimed that he heard his music in his head in this simultaneous fashion, a symphony occurring in one instant, and that his most difficult task was to translate that momentary perception into a linear time scale in order to write it down and play it. It is beyond any of our normal human capabilities to deny without question that this may be a possibility, for we are simply creatures that experience the linear flow of time as the nature of our own personal reality. Though this in no way implies that our perception is necessarily the absolute state of ALL reality, but may perhaps be just a limitation of our perception or even our mental capacity.
It is said that we only use 10% of our brain capacity. What if the simultaneous perception such as Mozart was capable of achieving were the result of his using a higher capacity of his mind, or a different element of his brain, which is simply currently inaccessible to the common man?
Other ‘idiot’ savants are similarly capable of accomplishing seemingly impossible mental functions and feats due to some strange wiring of their brains. The idea that our experience of reality is a limitation of our awareness or brain function, is nothing new to science. And the possibility that such capacities could be significantly expanded or improved upon is a common pursuit in both scientific and metaphysical circles which focus upon the development of human potential and consciousness. In fact the esoteric tradition was focused upon the development of such potentials 1000’s of years before modern science was even born.
Could Time Simultaneity Account for Prophecy, Clairvoyance & Déjà vu?
If such concepts as the simultaneity of time were a reality, it would explain many common phenomena that are currently a mystery to our normal consciousness. The numerous examples of prophecy, psychic perception or intuition of the future, a foreboding that tells someone not to get on a plane, the sense of Déjà vu, dreams that see future events, and many other mysterious phenomena would all be explained by this single principle. And the possibility that financial markets are forecastable would fall squarely into this same category.
This immediately brings up serious philosophical questions about the nature of free will and determinism, because if time were simultaneous, then that would imply that the future is already written, hence predetermined, and that our sense of free will is an illusion. It also implies that there may be a predetermined and inevitable direction that everything is moving or drawn towards. Along with that idea, comes the possibility that there may even be an underlying teleological purpose behind the universe that these laws of order are intentionally “ordering” according to some kind of predetermined plan, or mathematical schematic inherent within the structure of “The Field”.
Ideas like this are simply too abstract and far-out for most people even to begin to ponder, which is why the theory of the predictability of the financial markets is so quickly dismissed by the common man as rubbish. However, similar ideas are posited all the time by the most brilliant minds in physics, mathematics, philosophy, mysticism and esoteric tradition. Indeed the possibility that time is simultaneous has probably been most thoroughly considered by men of science, and even more extreme ideas are theorized by them all the time. An example of such would be that of parallel or multiple universes, wherein every possibilities could potentially happen, and that with every decision that is ever made by every person, another bifurcation of reality happens creating two parallel universes that simultaneously play out both possibilities, and on and on and on…
The Manifold Relationships Between Theoretical Physics & Eastern Mysticism
This concept becomes so hyper-complex so quickly as to be almost inconceivable, and even scientists and the most abstract thinkers become quickly lost in the possibilities. Other advanced cosmological theories like Membrane Theory (M Theory), claim to provide a solution that incorporates all five of the most popular Superstring Theories in an 11 dimensional system, where our entire universe may be nothing but one tiny membrane or bubble amidst an infinite number of such bubbles floating in an infinite cosmic sea. They theorize that when one bubble collides with another, an entirely new universe is created through each such collision.
These are some of the most current theories of our modern PHYSICISTS, not esotericists or metaphysicians, though much similarity can be found between such fields when they push out to their furthest considerations. The well-known physicist, Fritjof Capra wrote his now famous book The Tao of Physics: An Exploration of the Parallels Between Modern Physics and Eastern Mysticism in 1975, being one of the first to explore the relationships between modern theoretical physics and Eastern mysticism. He relates the following of his discussions with Werner Heisenberg, one of the fathers of Quantum Mechanics:
“I had several discussions with Heisenberg. I lived in England then [circa 1972], and I visited him several times in Munich and showed him the whole manuscript chapter by chapter. He was very interested and very open, and he told me something that I think is not known publicly because he never published it. He said that he was well aware of these parallels. While he was working on quantum theory he went to India to lecture and was a guest of Tagore. He talked a lot with Tagore about Indian philosophy. Heisenberg told me that these talks had helped him a lot with his work in physics, because they showed him that all these new ideas in quantum physics were in fact not all that crazy. He realized there was, in fact, a whole culture that subscribed to very similar ideas. Heisenberg said that this was a great help for him. Niels Bohr had a similar experience when he went to China.”
– Fritjof Capra, interviewed by Renee Weber in the book The Holographic Paradigm, pages 217-218.
So when considering the science of Cosmological Economics or the Law of Vibration, the dogmatic scientist or militant materialist would do well to suspend judgment and remember the deep roots within both the modern scientific and age-old historical traditions which point to the very real possibility of the existence of such an interconnective science.
While all of these abstract ideas may seem well beyond the mental capacity of most normal humans of today, the science of 500 years from now will, without question, have solved many of these problems and have created advanced technologies based upon them. So it is, theoretically, highly probable that the prediction of markets, in fact the forecasting and prediction of all things in reality, is actually quite possible, just as Nostradamus predicted wars, political events, tyrants and happenings 500 years ahead of his living time. From this position, the idea of the prediction of financial market movement is not nearly as far out as it may seem.
And for those who find the abstraction of these concepts to be way too much for them and seek grounding in something tangible, we refer you to our section on Practical Applications, wherein the theoretical musings are put aside in place of practical techniques for both forecasting and trading the markets using elements of these theoretical foundations.
Dr. Goulden takes a different approach to market analysis than most normal traders and educators. As a Cambridge educated scholar, Goulden is interested in deep principles and in exploring the foundations and implications of both trading techniques and the systems behind them. Before he was ever interested in the markets, he was asked by a friend why Gannís tools and system are considered to be based upon metaphysical principles. He found this question intriguing and engaged in deep research in the field to answer this question. In this process he recreated a new set of tools based upon principles of Ancient Geometry and Celestial Mechanics. His tools are taken from the same sources as Gannís and are quite powerful, but are slightly different from Gannís, so that traders often use them as non-correlated cross-confirmation tools giving similar technical indications but from different perspectives.
His work is deep and has many layers of application and exploration that can be derived from it. His latest work on financial astrology, The Secrets of the Chronocrators, looks back to the astrological and astronomical systems of the ancients, reviving the more mathematical and technical astrology of the Great Masters of the medieval and prior times. Exploring principles like Spherical Astronomy and subtle movements of the Solar System, it seeks to develop a more advanced and scientific system of astrology determination as distinguished from the simpler forms that are generally known. It represents a new movement to re-explore the deeper scientific systems of the ancients that were lost in the press towards the development of a purely mechanical science.
Goulden is a superb educator and the most active Forum moderator that we have seen, with each of his Forums for his courses having 1000ís of posts with detailed questions and answers, deviling deeply into further and new fields of research beyond what is presented in his courses. His Online Forums serve as an advanced classroom where the details of his theories are discussed and elaborated and where students share their research and work with each other while overseen by Goulden, who continually presents new ideas and suggestions.
Dan Ferrera is one of the most respected market analysts and educators in the Gann field. For 20 years his works have been some of the most popular in our catalog. Aside from being one of the clearest interpreters of Gann, he also has produced his own advanced work, The Spirals of Growth & Decay, developed prior to his analysis and presentation of Gannís theories. For those seeking a solid, Masterís Degree level education in technical Gann analysis, we cannot recommend anything more highly than Ferreraís works.
Ferrera has written detailed course on every angle of Gannís work and provides a fast track into a deep understanding of each field of Gannís work as well as advanced topics in technical analysis. He has works on cycles analysis, Gannís Square of 9, Gannís Mass Pressure Charts, one on risk management and Gannís swing trading system, another on the details of Gannís complex geometrical and mathematical tools, one on astrological Bible interpretation, on teaching how to create yearly forecasts like his own yearly Outlooks, which give a prediction for each year, and more. If you are wanting to get a first taste of Gann and to save yourself years of hard work putting together his ideas, Ferrera is a perfect place to start, and walking through his series of fantastic is like getting a Masterís degree in Gann and technical analysis.
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. However, even further, Baumring rediscovered and elaborated the system of scientific cosmology at the root of Gannís Law of Vibration. There is absolutely no other Gann teaching that goes anywhere near as deep as Baumringís work, or that even so much as attempts to approach the core ideas developed by Baumring. This study is for those who are interested in the mysteries behind the markets and the ordering system behind the universe itself. This is the study of cosmological theory on its deepest level, and of the interaction between man and the cosmos in which he lives, explored through an examination of causation and propagation of forces in the financial markets.
Dr. Baumringís course program is not easy, and should not be approached without the willingness to commit at least a few years to the study. It is a long and detailed course, requiring the equivalent level of research and difficulty as most PhD programs, but in the field of Gann Analysis, which is not taught at any university. It requires many years of challenging work including the reading of many dozens (if not 100ís) of books required to develop the foundations needed to understand Gannís approach to the markets. It is a very serious study that should only be approached by those willing to dedicate themselves to intense thinking and vast research across many fields of knowledge including: astronomy, biology, physics, finance, cycles, wave mechanics, geometry, mathematics, astrology, numerology, number theory, numerous esoteric and alternative scientific theories, and much, much more. Baumring summarized his system by the term ďNumerical AstrophysicsĒ in an attempt to give a modern name to an ancient theory that Gann himself had discovered.
Of all the analysts and traders we have known, the most advanced have all come to their understanding through following the lead of Dr. Baumring, or through having gone through a similar and parallel study and path of research to his. His teachings represent the ďbest of the bestĒ of all material on Gann publicly available, but it will not give up its secrets to a mere superficial perusal. Baumring does not spell out simple explanations of how Gannís techniques work, but rather leads his students into the depth of the science behind the system, while slowly elaborating how the techniques build upon this deeper science. For those seeking a fast path to the application of Gann exoteric trading principles, this is NOT it! Baumringís work is not merely some market trading program, and indeed if approached this way may be found to be dissatisfactory.
Baumring himself often said to his students, ďIf you only are looking to make money, donít bother studying Gann, itís too difficult. Simply study swing trading systems, risk management and options strategies, and you can make all the money you want to make.Ē (Note: we have excellent books on these alternativesÖ) There are much easier and more direct methods to learn to effectively trade the markets than studying Gann. Those in more of a hurry to apply Gannís work to trading may want to begin with the work of Ferrera or one of our most applied analysts, like Prandelli or Gordon Roberts, and save the Baumring work for a later time to explore at your leisure.
