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.
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.
W.D. Gann Works
W. D. Gannís private courses represent the most important of all of Gannís writings, and go into much greater detail than his public book series, with which most people are only acquainted. They should be carefully studied in their full detail, as they contain the deepest insights into Gannís theories ever presented. Stock traders must be sure to study all the commodity courses and vice versa, since Gann often put techniques that applied to all markets in only one or another course.
We stock the complete collection of the works of W.D. Gann, both his courses and books. Our set of Gannís courses were initially collected and compiled by Dr. Baumring and Donald Mack in the 1980ís from dozens of original rare private course that were distributed by Gann throughout his career. Many people mistakenly think that Gann just wrote two courses called the Master Stock Course and Master Commodity Course. This couldnít be further from the truth! Each of Gannís ďcoursesĒ were actually small, ďsectionsĒ of a few pages to a few dozen pages, individually bound in paper folders. These various pieces were then compiled into different sets which he sold as various collections at different prices to different students over the decades. Some were more commonly sold to all students, while other were more secretive and sold only to close private students who often signed non-disclosure agreements, and paid exorbitantly high prices. It is these rarest pieces that make the difference between one collection and another.
The later courses Gann sold in the 1940ís and that he ďcalledĒ the Master Courses were nothing but various compiled collections of these smaller pieces, and would vary according to who purchased them and what price they paid, and were never set until after Gannís death when purchased by Ed Lambert. For instance, there are pieces that Gann advertised in the 1950ís as ďnewĒ like his Master Mathematical Formula for Market Predictions, or his rare #3 Master Time Factor Course which were never included in his ďMaster CoursesĒ, and similarly were never included with any of the Lambert Gann courses sold by Lambert or the Jonesí from the 60ís until now. So these ďmasterĒ courses are and have always been incomplete collections. Further, the Lambert Gann courses sold by Billy Jones through the turn of the century, were retyped and re-edited by Billy so that they did not provide the original unadulterated content that Gann produced, making them unreliable, edited versions. Our editions are exact facsimiles of the original copies sold by Gann, with no editing or adulteration of any kind.
Our 6 Volume set of Gannís Collected Writings was further supplemented by new finds of rare pieces, like those mentioned above, rediscovered by the Institute over the past 30 years since Baumringís death, and comprises the most complete and the only properly organized set of courses that are available. Gann has very particular sets that he sold only to his higher end clientele, placed in specific order to provide a particular logic to his work. Our collection maintains this order and includes a further collection of rare and historical courses, letters and private materials which make our collection the most complete and important collection available. Serious students of Gann should beware most ďsupposedĒ collections of Gannís writings as most are unauthorized, incomplete, and distorted representations of his work, and cannot be trusted. Our set it the most reliable set of Gannís unadulterated and most important work availableÖ
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.

A REPORT BY PETRUS TALEMARIANUS ON THE ESTABLISHMENT OF A “GOLDEN RULE,” ACCORDING TO THE PRINCIPLES OF TANTRISM, TAOISM, PYTHAGOREANISM, AND THE KABALA, SERVING TO FULFILL THE LAWS OF UNIVERSAL HARMONY AND CONTRIBUTING TO THE ACCOMPLISHMENT OF THE GREAT WORK
Edited by Alexandre Rouhier Translated by Ariel Godwin Edited by Joscelyn Godwin Illustrations by Marcel Nicaud
t was long ago that I first noticed that the builders of edifices were discontinuing the use of natural materials, and I was disquieted by the diminution of activity in the stone quarries that our ancestors traditionally exploited so fruitfully for construction. Questioning these conditions that troubled the fortunes of numerous enterprises, I sought to discover their cause, and set off to travel throughout the world, guided by the “seven spirits who stand before the throne of God.”
Having thus collected and recorded many observations, I was on the point of terminating my travels when, overcome by fatigue, I fell asleep by the roadside and dreamt that I saw a marvelous garden in the middle of the desert, surrounded by three octagonal enclosures and planted in quincunxes, in which trees bore golden apples. I went to cross the entrance in order to take some of the fruit, but a coiling green dragon blocked my access, spewing flames at me. A hundred times I tried to surprise the vigilance of the dragon with the help of the clear and distinct ideas that my masters had taught me as being of obvious efficacy; a hundred times surrounded by thick flames and striving in vain, I was forced to remain outside the enchanted enclosure. Discouraged, I was about to abandon the struggle, and was filled with doubts and confusion amidst the darkness; but then, having invoked the Archangel Saint Michael, I saw the word ABRACADABRA written in the sky, and immediately, the dragon having disappeared, an invisible force drew me into the garden of Eden. At this same moment I awoke and, well rested, reached the end of my route. I immediately began my quest for the magical power of ABRACADABRA.
I already knew that this word symbolized Father, Spirit, and Word or Triad; writing them out, according to their meaning, in the following triangular form:
I formed all the combinations of letters, writing the words A, AB, ABR, ABRA, etc., starting at the left angle of the base, without skipping any lines and without descending. I then substituted the last letter of the word with the number of combinations found, thus obtaining this arrangement:
I immediately recognized Pascal’s arithmetical triangle.
This arrangement of numbers indicated many hidden things relating to human nature, and I located them in circumnavigating the famous ancient triangle in the direction of the earth’s rotation (Fig. 2).
According to “forma” or discontinuity, the sum of the numbers, for each column, enumerates all the possible options between things defined by their number, combining these in all possible ways, and thus it signifies the liberty or human will which, being one, can at the same time be all, in that it participates in Unity but is also limited by the multiplicity of things.
According to “materia” or continuity, the numbers on each line represent the most simple geometric elements that can be conceived in each dimension of space: line, triangle, tetrahedron, hyper-pyramid, etc.
According to “complex-um,” or the product of continuity and discontinuity, the sum of the numbers constitutes the series: 1, 1, 2, 3, 5, 8, 13, 21, 34, 55, 89, which Fibonacci first described in the Liber Abaci, counting the number of offspring produced each month by a pair of rabbits, fertile at the end of a month and producing two offspring each month; thus it composes a continuous series in which each term equals the sum of the two terms preceding it.
Pursuing my studies, and considering the ratios of two successive terms of this series, I saw that it was possible to represent them with a simple continuous fraction:
using only the number 1.
It has been known for a long time that the limit “g” toward which this continuous division tends can be expressed by the following equations:
g = (1 + √5) / 2 = 1 / (2 cos [2π/5]) ; whence, if g = a / b and a > b, (a + b) / a = a / b.
This ratio g = a / b, thus defined, divides a given length in such a way that the total (a + b) has the same ratio to the larger part (a) as the larger has to the smaller (b), and thus the whole is divided in parts so that the largest is the geometric mean of the smallest and the whole.
This ratio, which the ancients called “the rule of mean and extreme proportion” or “divine proportion” because it indicates the universal analogy of being in the most simple way possible, has discontinuous and continuous properties at the same time, that is to say, natural properties that are illustrated by the following series of additions:
1 g n – 8
1 g n – 6
4 g n – 7
1 g n – 4
3 g n – 5
6 g n – 6
1 g n – 2
2 g n – 3
3 g n – 4
4 g n – 5
1 g n
1 g n – 1
1 g n – 2
1 g n – 3
1 g n – 4
and in this way, through the coefficients, the arrangement of numbers of PASCAL’s arithmetical triangle appears, from which the ratio “g” emerges.
Considering the preceding triangular tables, it was easy for me to see that the sums of the numbers, according to “forma,” in relation to the five vowels A, were: 1, 8, 32, 64, 1. These numbers, not counting the 1, represent the number of squares in a row of a chessboard, the number of pieces, and the total number of squares. Also, in order to define the arithmetical triangle, I divided the chessboard with a diagonal line stretching from the bottom left to the top right, then wrote the number 1 in the squares along the bottom, and in the other squares, the sum of the number in the adjacent square to the left on the same row plus the number of the square to the left and one row down (Fig. 3). Thus, having numbered the squares in a triangular form, I confined the FIBONACCI sequence to seven numbers.
Lagrange demonstrated that every continuous periodic simple fraction can be represented by a construction with a ruler and compass. Such a construction of the continuous fraction revealed by ABRACADABRA, where only the unity appears, is the simplest possible, all multiplicity being thus excluded. To reveal this construction, I first recognized that the vowel A was represented by an isosceles triangle, all of whose angles were acute. Then, in the interest of simplicity, I naturally drew the angle that is unequal to the two others as half of each of the equal angles, such that a circle divided by 5 measures this angle.
Having placed the three vertices of this triangle upon a circle, I proceeded to inscribe four other triangles similarly and regularly on the same circle, thus forming a regular pentagonal star or pentalpha (Fig. 4).
In this figure I effectively rediscovered the ratio “g” between the long and short sides of the isosceles triangle, because:
cos (2π / 5) = 1 / (1 + √5) = 1 / 2g.
Furthermore, it was easy to demonstrate that between the longest side of the triangle and the radius of the circumscribed circle, there is a ratio “h” with the value √(1 + g2), and that THE RATIO h/g IS THE RATIO OF THE SIDE OF A REGULAR PENTAGON TO THE SIDE OF A REGULAR HEXAGON WHEN BOTH ARE INSCRIBED IN THE SAME CIRCLE.
Finally, the pentalpha forms a similar pentalpha at its center, inverse and consonant with the exterior pentalpha according to the divine proportion.
Thanks to ABRACADABRA I thus discovered, on the chessboard (discontinuous) and on the pentalpha (continuous), the divine proportion, symbolizing the universal analogy that rules the multiple states of being in the opposite direction, and according to which the “forma” and “materia” of the created beings are unified while still remaining distinct. I then sought to use this proportion to discover the key to the construction of edifices, conceived in a way that uses the natural stones with the maximum natural commodity and harmony.
To this end, inspired to pursue my studies, I represented Unity with a very small square, of side 1, and studied the manner by which this little square—or pole, by its own proliferation—could generate a surface of a certain area. For this reason I traced a second square, identical and adjacent to the first, and thus obtained a rectangle of module 2, called, according to the traditional language, “silver rectangle” (Fig. 5a). But I did not continue this construction, which had given me an indefinite line and not a defined surface, and I adjoined a square of side 2 to two opposite squares A and B, thus assuring their development (Fig. 5b). I then obtained a rectangle of module 3/2.
In the same way, one after another, I constructed a series of rectangles, almost identical to each other, whose modules were equal to the ratio of two successive numbers in the FIBONACCI sequence; and since this ratio has the number “g” (the golden number) as its limit, the small square (pole), or principle of evolution, tends in its proper proliferation to manifest itself in a rectangle of module “g” known as the “golden rectangle.” I thus saw the series of rectangles develop in such a way that the corners of the squares were situated on BERNOUILLI’s logarithmic spiral, the pole of the spiral being placed at the meeting point of the orthogonal diagonals of two contiguous figures of the series, this pole being quadrupled by the symmetry of the figure along two axes, and finally merging with the position of the small square whose proliferation generated the golden rectangle (Fig. 6).
Working in this way, bit by bit, I forged the key to open the door to the temple of Natural Architecture. First, I wanted to make the house symmetrical according to the positioning of the parts of the human body, that is to say by breadth alone and not by depth or height. To this end, tracing each symmetrical façade around a vertical axis, I drew the sides of the edifice as identical, the façades as differing, and the roof as sloping.
It has been said with good reason that the concrete being is an existing one, realization of an essence, its immediate principle, enveloped by the realizing substance; therefore, the plans of houses constructed in the image of nature should be divided into squares signifying the principle of the existing, then into golden rectangles signifying the existing itself. They should then be surrounded by gardens whose ground plan is a silver rectangle symbolizing the realizing substance (see p. [*]21).
I saw also that in plans, private houses had the ratio of golden rectangles generating one another and formed by a number of small elementary squares defined by the FIBONACCI sequence, and that they were divided into three orders, as follows: order B with five small squares along the façade and three along the sides, order D with eight small squares along the façade and five along the sides, and order G with thirteen small squares along the façade and eight along the sides, this order having as its complement order F, whose plan, in a horseshoe shape like that of order G, is inscribed in a square of thirteen small squares per side.
Each plan is divided by the partition walls into three consonant parts according to the divine proportion: two parts, on the sides, identical and opposite, with the same ratio as the two whorls of the key (Fig. 7), are reunited by a third part, central but different, like the strophe, antistrophe, and epode in ritual chants. In the extremities, I assigned the area reserved for men to the left, the area reserved for women to the right, and the doors, passageways, staircases, and closets to the central part. The size of the small square defined the dimension of the edifice.
Façades and sides correspond to each plan, included either in the squares or in the golden rectangles, in such a way that all the faces of the parallelepiped that encloses the house are either squares or golden rectangles, and the height of the roof is determined in this manner.
With open windows: in order B, only the main façade; in order D, the two façades; in orders F and G, all the façades and sides. The placement of the windows was such that each façade or side was divided by the openings into squares and into golden rectangles.
Tradition tells us that every state of a being finds its explanation in its principle, which rests immobile, governing evolution, and that the various principles of the multiple states of the same being are joined by a straight line perpendicular to the planes of manifestation, this straight line thus representing the continuity of the unique principle which rules all the states of this being. Naturally, I traced the two columns (dotted lines) of the roof on the vertical planes that contain the “poles” of the planes of the different stories of the edifice, and I determined the extent of the roof itself in such a way that the ratio of its height to that of the walls was the same as that of mean and extreme proportion (Fig. 7).
The rules of natural architecture being thus defined, I sought to synthesize the essential proportions of an edifice in a pantacle. Also, knowing that multiplicity, or evolution, was contained in the Unity or principle, so that the rectangle was contained within the square, I set about constructing four silver rectangles and four golden rectangles inside a given square.
For this, I divided one square, with equal sides of 1, into four squares, with the lines εε′ and φφ′ (Fig. 8). In each silver rectangle thus formed (αβφ′φ, βγε′ε, γδφφ′, δαεε′), I drew a diagonal. The four diagonals (αφ′, βε′, γφ, δε) bisect each other in pairs, symmetrically, at the corners of square α′β′γ′δ′.
Then, on diagonal αφ′, I used the length α″φ′, (= βφ′), and on the side αβ of the square, the length αμ (= αα″), and thus obtained the golden rectangle αμμ′δ, because:
αδ/ αμ = αβ/αμ = 2 / (√5 – 1) = (1 + √5) / 2 = g.
Furthermore, by joining corner β to point α″ with a line whose extension intersected side αδ at point ω, I obtained another golden rectangle αβω′ω, because αω = αμ.
 In Hebrew: Father, Ab (אב); Spirit, Rvach (רוה); Word, Dabar (דבר).
 For more clarity, I used arrows to represent the three different paths to take so that the word ABRA will end with the first A of the second line.
 The 9 (= 5 + 4) divinities that dominate the garden recall the 5 consonants and 4 vowels of the word ARSENICVM, which is the name of the Philosopher’s Stone.
 This limitation served to define the rules of natural architecture (see p. [*]6).
 The sum of the numbers composing the lines on one side of the diagonal, and that of the numbers on the other side, is in each case 33 (= 12 + 21 = 1 + 10 + 15 + 7).
 The value approached by “g” is 1.6180..., that of “h” is 1.9021..., and that of h/g is 1.1756....
 The module is the ratio of the long of a rectangle to its short side.
 The silver rectangle defines the ratio of mean and extreme proportion through the ratio of the sum of its diagonal and its short side to its long side: g = (√5 + 1) / 2.
 “Symmetry, in what one sees at a glance, is based upon that which cannot be reasonably done otherwise, and also based upon the human figure, whence it comes about that one only sees symmetry in breadth, not in height or depth.” (Pascal, Pensées, 28).
 The symbolism of this figure, where the Mother and Child are placed at the center of the monstrance, between the Grail and the Athanor, is highly representative of the thoughts that inspired the Author to write this “Report.”
 The double spiral can be considered a symbol of the winding and unwinding of the “Shakti” (see pp. [*]22-23), as well as of the waxing and waning of the moon.
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.
Hasbrouck Space and Time
One of our great historical discoveries is the Hasbrouck Space-Time Archives, a collection of rare research materials and forecast letters lost for over 30 years. This research develops a new theory of market influence based upon Solar Field Force Theory that was developed during the birth of the space age. The Hasbroucks were deeply connected to the esoteric and financial market communities from the 1920ís through the 1970ís, and contributed a new and recontextualized presentation of information taken from older original esoteric sources. They present a new field of study of solar phenomena, space weather prediction, earthquake prediction and market forecasting.
Muriel Hasbrouck was the inspiring force behind the research, which a foundation in Theosophy and trained as a classical pianist, she pursued an interest in original source works in astrology, through the turn of the 19th century into the early 20ís. She studies with greats like Walter Russell, Paul Foster Case, Aleister Crowley, and Israel Regardie within the esoteric fields. In the market realms she was close with many of the great analysts of her day like Edson Gould, Edward Dewey, Hamilton Bolton, SA Nelson, and more. She and her husband Louis produced a well-received forecasting letter for 30 years called Space Time Forecasting of Economic Trends, and are now quite famous for forecasting the exponential bull market of the 90ís and subsequent crash 50 years in advance! Their theories of Solar influence upon human and earthly experience through geomagnetic influences still lie at the cutting edge of scientific speculation.
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.
