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.
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.
Long Term Investing
The time window is a main consideration when investing.
Position trading methods will be of importance to the long term investor because he will want to know when to expect his greatest returns, and when to exit or hedge his position.
Much of Gann’s work focuses on long term market movements, as he always tried to see the BIG picture.
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 Baumring’s lists to be indispensable, since they over important but unfamiliar topics.
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.
Much science from the 1800’s 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.
Vibration by The Patterns
Volume 1 of Dr. Lorrie Bennet’s 4 volume series. A course in Theoretical Wave Mechanics as an introduction and foundation to Gann’s Law of Vibration. This volume lays foundations for all Gann and Baumring’s higher teachings and is an essential prerequisite to move on to the deeper levels of Gann Theory presented in Vols. 2-4.
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.
An Interview with Dr. Jerome Baumring Los Angeles Herald Examiner
Tuesday February 4th 1986
By Aruo Sederberg, Moneyline
L.A. Bookstore Speaks Volumes On Esoteric Investment Theory
Tucked away on the second floor at 2124 S. Sepulveda Blvd. (near Olympic) in Los Angeles is something the likes of which cannot be found anywhere else on this globe.
It's the Investment Centre Bookstore, owned and operated by two men trained in fields one would think far removed from speculation in stocks, bonds or commodities.
Donald Mack, who founded the store in 1972, was educated as an engineer.
Jerome Baumring, his equal partner, was educated as a pharmacologist.
Both are self-educated in an investment theory apparently too esoteric (or slow) for Wall Street - the Gann Theory, which holds that natural laws, or recurring cycles, govern stock movements.
William D. Gann, who died in 1955, hailed from the East Texas cotton country. He had a mathematical bent - some say mystic - and that is the basis of the theory. It's too complex to set; down in a column, or even a book, but suffice to say, in its utmost simplicity, it's based on the view that what happened in the past will repeat.
"Nothing ever changes" says Baumring. "Everybody makes the same mistakes throughout history. It is a battle, with timing the key."
Gann, in a test by Ticker Magazine, made 286 trades in stocks in October 1909. He was right in 264, wrong in 22.
What is the theory forecasting now? It's a question that makes Baumring's eyes gleam. "The market has volcanic underpinnings," he says. "If I make a statement about how big it could be, you wouldn't believe me."
Aw, c'mon, doctor, make a statement, urges a reporter. Baumring says: "From now to the end of the third quarter, the market will be sideways or down, perhaps some 200 points (on the Dow). Then we expect a rally 1927 to 1929, to 3000 or more by 1988 or 1989. There will be 400 million-share days on the market."
And then? A crash? If the 60-year Naros Cycle holds, the top will be 1989; operative also is the Kaliyuga great cycle of - get this - 25,200 years.
It may sound wild, but to students like Baumring and Mack it's the key, along with the works of restaurant accountant R.N. Elliott and Dow theorist pioneers William Hamilton and Richard Rhea.
If you visit the Investment Centre Bookstore, you'll find all the modern stuff - "How I Made a Million," etc. - but you'll also find bound facsimiles of the old, rare books. They have the originals, but won't sell them; they're too valuable.
Among the basic investment books recommended by the pair are titles I'll wager you never heard of: "Stock Market Barometer," by Hamilton; "Reminiscences of a Stock Operator," by Edwin Lefevre; "Nature's Law," by Elliott, "45 Years on Wall Street," by Gann. There are some more updated ones, also, such as Jacob Bernstein's "The Investor's Quotient," Benjamin Graham's "Intelligent Investor," and Joe Granville's initial works.
The Centre has about 5,000 volumes, an inventory worth about $500,000, including Wall Street fiction, history, biography, and fundamental and technical analysis.
Baumring and Mack estimate about 10,000 books have been published on the subjects.
Although Baumring does anticipate that sideways to declining market until September, he's not out right now.
"It's a market of stocks, not a stock market " he says. "I'm somewhat of a contrarian, so I like the oil stocks now, since everyone is throwing them out. I also like the brokerage stocks."
His private library contains 900 books at the shop and about 1,500 at home. "And I've read them all," he says. Go talk to him or Mack, and you just might believe that.
Cosmological Economics, the Key focus of this website, has its origins in Gann’s Law of Vibration, interpreted and extended by the work of Dr. Jerome Baumring.
Scientific phenomena are seen as a basis of correlation and causation underlying the financial market, indicating a symbiotic relationship between Cosmic forces and reactions on Earth.
The stock and commodity markets have a history stretching over millennia, from the Bible to the present day, furnishing data on sun spots, planetary changes, weather cycles, volcanoes, earthquakes, solar variances, and other influences on financial markets.
Gann charted Wheat back to 65 BC and Baumring took this back to 1200 BC.
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".
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.
In the 1700-1800’s 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.
