A quick insight into general conditions of the market can be had by synthesizing combinations of data as simple indicators giving an overview.
Such indicators are often based on diverse data, from astrological signals, like Scott's Astronomical Market Barometer or Bradley’s Siderograph, to whether a specific market is overbought or oversold.
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.
The two fundamental elements of reality are space and time, and of the markets price and time.
Gann always said that Time is the most important variable.
If you know exactly WHEN to place your trades, when the market will turn, top, bottom, react or breakout, you will be able to trade or invest with great precision.
There are a many important historical figures in the field of science and cosmology, like Pythagoras, Plato, Hermes, Bruno, or the misrepresented Isaac Newton.
The work of these outstanding men contributed a great deal to our extended fields of knowledge.
We specialise in books exploring the work of past masters who contributed so much.
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.
Esoteric and Pythagorean sciences love to play with the value and meaning of numbers, from the complex mathematical theories of the Platonists, via Fibonacci’s 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.

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.
Richard Scott Trading with the Astronomical Market Barometer
About the Author
At the Institute of Cosmological Economics, we constantly look for new and individual research and applications in the field of Astro-Economics to better establish the relationship between celestial phenomena and financial market activity. Richard Scott’s research introduces an alternative approach astro-economic theory reading celestial influences as energetic influences that are quantified and their outcomes projected into the future.
Richard Scott was born in Falkirk, Scotland, the seventh of ten children in his family. At the age of six his family immigrated to Australia and he has lived there ever since. It wasn't until later in life that his interests turned to the world of the markets. His father-in-law had traded very successfully for many years, and around the year 2000 Scott began to take a serious interest in the field.
In the nascent stages of his trading education he came across an article online that attributed causal link between a stock's price movement and the retrograde motion of Mercury. This interest blossomed over time and his wife's guidance as a qualified Astrologer proved to play a pivotal role in influencing Richard's method of understanding financial astrology.
The Intuitive Autodidact
One of the most interesting aspects of Scott’s development into a successful Financial Astrologer was his determination to find his own way into the process of relating celestial motion to the movements of the markets. While the majority of traders and researchers in this field follow the canon of knowledge provided by the greats like W. D. Gann and George Bayer, Scott willingly embraced his own intuitive processes of understanding from the very beginning. Interestingly, as his skills in this area developed further, he became increasingly adamant to maintain his self-reliance by methodically testing out his own theses for efficacy and profitability. This determination to maintain a sense of educational sovereignty has provided him with a life of trading successes.
A Methodical Study of Celestial Causality
Scott's practice is grounded in a methodical study of celestial causality. The essence of his process is merely to observe something interesting occur in the markets and engage in a study of what the celestial influences were at the time. While this process may appear as simplistic by today’s technological standards, it is the manner in which he applied this method that has provided him with an almost encyclopedic and highly intuitive understanding of how these manifold celestial relationships influence market patterns.
Scott’s 7-Metre Wide Master Chart
Over a period of 8 years, Scott painstakingly created an enormous visual reference that served as his primary source for study. Scott printed out 40 years of The Dow Jones Industrial Averages one-day bar charts and conjoined them into a 7 metre wide master chart. Underneath these one-day bar charts he fixed hand drawn charts which declared retrograde planetary motion, major transits and planets entering new houses for the planets Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, Neptune and Pluto on a weekly basis. Beneath these weekly charts he placed an additional layer of hand drawn daily chart information outlining the same celestial movements for the planets Mars, Mercury, Venus and the Sun and Moon.
The generation of this bespoke information matrix was, needless to say, a long and painstaking process, as attention to minute details was of critical importance. The commensurate reward for this determined effort was that very soon after commencing this project, Scott began to perceive interesting and profitable patterns emerging amongst the various influences.
Convinced that his hard work was providing rewards, he decided to further test his emerging theories by applying them to 100 years of the DJIA. The result of this labor provided him with a huge body of evidence indicating that all of the celestial changes in motion, transits and movements into different houses have predictable and profitable influence upon the markets.
The Creation of a Compendium
With his hard earned insights in-hand, Scott began to reap the profit rewards from his years of study. After developing a strong relationship with the people at Market Analyst, he was introduced by them to the Institute of Cosmological Economics as an avenue to share his insights with a larger audience. The explanation of 8 years of findings and their supporting evidence is the subject of this first ICE book: A Compendium of Astro-Economic Influences - Practically Applied.
The "Great Art" of His Process
Within this book Scott clearly explains "the great art” of his process which is how to determine the proper summation of the underlying celestial energies. Scott methodically explains his method of how to weigh these different influences based upon his 8 years of comparative analysis and insights. These influences have been rigorously catalogued in detailed tables showing the results of each influence, tabulating the percentage gains and losses of the market in response, establishing the clarity of his technique through an overwhelming consistency of data referencing over 100 years of market history.
It is to be noted that while the notion of such an encyclopedic array of data may sound daunting, the transition from digesting the information to applying the insights is surprisingly simple. No long calculation tables or complicated software is required, the reader just needs to understand the few reference lists of weighted planetary influences, and an ephemeris, and they will quickly be plotting the same anticipated energies in the coming market as Scott himself would.
This course presents the results of 8 years of labor, summarized, simplified, and clearly presented so that any trader can begin tracking and trading the planetary influences on the markets in a matter of weeks rather than years.
Scott compiled 110 years of Dow Jones Industrial Average data, and, with his ephemeris in hand, tracked down every instance of every planetary influence that he could discover until he was able to explain all of them.
An important insight into planetary influence by determining the ongoing energetic background environment that the market is traveling through at all times.
The rewards of Richards’s tireless research have provided him with the means to earn an extremely profitable income from home, doing something which he is extremely passionate about. Richard greatly admires the evergreen attitude of his father-in-law who still trades extensively at the age of 87 purely for the mental stimulation it provides daily. He sees himself content to continue working with the markets for a long time into the future.
Aside from his immersion in the markets, Richard is a lively contributor in a local Scottish Pipes and Drums Band, where he plays the bagpipes in honor of his Scottish roots. Richard's research life is active and thriving and he is busily working on the publication of an updated and expanded ICE course that focus on astrological trading methods for global stock, futures and forex markets. The Institute of Cosmological Economics is proud to support the literary fruits of his ongoing research efforts in the field of Financial Astrology.
For 20 years Dan Ferrera has been one of our most respected market analysts, with a Master’s Degree level of education in technical Gann analysis. One of the clearest interpreters of Gann, he produced his own advanced work of technical analysis, The Spirals of Growth & Decay, prior to writing detailed courses on every angle of Gann’s work
Analytical systems, techniques and tools based upon the use of geometry are significantly effective when applied to the analysis of market trends.
Books on the psychological element of the markets and trading. These works cover both how markets are influenced by the psychology of the individuals behind them, as well as the actual psychology behind trading for the trader.
Position trading is an approach recommended by both Gann and Baumring, saying that there were maybe only about 4 good trades per year in any market. Markets would go into congestions of accumulation or distribution for years awaiting a new trend, and meanwhile one trades other markets. Gann taught the same principles on his higher level, saying that MOST money was always made in following a strong trend.
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.
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.
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 1800’s, incorporated with valuable elements taken from esoteric cosmology.
The theory posits that vibration underlies all phenomena, and that harmonic factors govern universal forces.
