There are two quite different sides to Gann analysis, the deeply theoretical, seeking to understand the essence of the science behind Gann’s 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 Gann’s 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 Gann’s 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. Gann’s own original work is a critical element for any Gann researcher’s collection, most people will find Gann’s 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 Gann’s, without significant help by well-seasoned analysts and traders who have dedicated years to decoding and creating practical tools from Gann’s techniques. This is why there is a fundamental and valuable secondary market of works presenting and developing Gann’s 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.

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.
T. G. Butaney Astrological Forecaster & Horse Racing Prognosticator
About the Author
TG Butaney is a highly respected Indian Vedic Astrologer who wrote from the 1940’s through 1970 on Financial Astrology and astrological forecasting of horse races. Butaney’s books are some of the most popular works on horse racing and financial forecasting, showing how the same information is used by both to prognosticate different types of events.
Butaney wrote a series of smaller pieces from the 1940’s through the 1960’s one of which we reprint to show the nature of his earlier works and how it evolved into his final versions. The second two summarize his final thoughts on the subjects of forecasting the financial markets and horse races using Astrology.
How to Forecast Prices & Winners in Horse Races with Astrological Forecast of Prices of Cotton, Grains, Oil-seeds & Rainfall
This is an example of Butaney’s earlier work, written in 1947 it documents his ideas and applications at this point in his career, about 15-20 years before the publication of his final works on Markets and Racing (which can be seen below). As an example of the subjects he was developing from early on, here are the contents to this work:
Economic Factors Governing The Price-Level: Supply & Demand

This is Butaney’s final work on what he calls Commerce Astrology, revising in 1963 all of his prior works on the subject which were written beginning back in 1940, before laying down his pen once and for all on the subject.
As Butaney explains:
I thoroughly revised & overhauled my previous publications on commercial astrology:
How to Forecast Prices
Complete Courses of Commercial Astrology
Forecasting Prices Made Easy
I added a lot of useful information and put in all my secrets of 25 years' research work in this 1963 New Revised Edition. Now my life's work is over. I lay down my pen forever and bid a loving farewell to all readers of my books.
In this book are embodied "SOLOMON'S MINES OF GOLD & DIAMONDS". The study of each page will lift the veil of darkness covering the "SECRET RULES OF SPECULATION & SPOTTING WINNERS IN RACES". When you have studied & grasped each rule explained in the book carefully, will suddenly flash the dazzling the beauty of Solomon's mines of gold & diamonds.
Then judicious and intelligent use of these rules will help you to make each deal in speculation a success and each selected horse a winner in races to make you rich beyond your expectations.
Butaney’s last work on horse racing details the authors final and ultimate insights and secrets from his life’s work. The author explains that in this work are incorporated:
ALL Handicap Numerological & Astrological Secrets Discovered by Me During My Over 30 Years Racing Experience to Pick the Winner in each Race.
An excerpt from the Preface:
During my researches in Racing Science, I discovered many marvelous secrets of Handicap, Racing Numerology and Racing Astrology during 1966 and 1967 to pick the winner in each race, to solve Double and Treble Win, Forecast Pool and even Jackpot Pool many a time. They do not find a place in the 1964 Edition because they were discovered by me after the 1964 Edition was printed.
It has ever been my grand desire that I should share these GRAND SECRETS, each worth $1000’s with the Racing Fans of the world. I have thoroughly overhauled and considerably enlarged the earlier editions. I have also neatly explained and incorporated all Beautiful Secrets in this edition, so that readers all over the world might share these Secrets with pleasure.
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 Gann’s 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 Gann’s and are quite powerful, but are slightly different from Gann’s, 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 1000’s 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 Gann’s theories. For those seeking a solid, Master’s Degree level education in technical Gann analysis, we cannot recommend anything more highly than Ferrera’s works.
Ferrera has written detailed course on every angle of Gann’s work and provides a fast track into a deep understanding of each field of Gann’s work as well as advanced topics in technical analysis. He has works on cycles analysis, Gann’s Square of 9, Gann’s Mass Pressure Charts, one on risk management and Gann’s swing trading system, another on the details of Gann’s 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 Master’s 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 Gann’s system of trading and market order. However, even further, Baumring rediscovered and elaborated the system of scientific cosmology at the root of Gann’s Law of Vibration. There is absolutely no other Gann teaching that goes anywhere near as deep as Baumring’s 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. Baumring’s 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 100’s) of books required to develop the foundations needed to understand Gann’s 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 “Numerical Astrophysics” 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 “best of the best” 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 Gann’s 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! Baumring’s 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, “If you only are looking to make money, don’t bother studying Gann, it’s too difficult. Simply study swing trading systems, risk management and options strategies, and you can make all the money you want to make.” (Note: we have excellent books on these alternatives…) 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 Gann’s 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.
