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.
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 Gannís "Speculation a Profitable Profession".
In ancinet times architecture often incorporated esoteric knowledge almost lost today, but encoded secretly into many existing ancient monuments.
Geometric principles of divine proportion govern the complex forces underlying financial markets as well as architecture.
We have one of the largest collections of books on these subjects in the world.
Baumring Science List
In the 1980ís Dr. Jerome Baumring, created an advanced course on the scientific cosmological system behind Gannís Law of Vibration, including over 100 important works.
These ranged from core works that Gann himself studied relating to Natural Science and Philosophy, to valuable works in alternative or lesser known scientific traditions.
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.
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 1800ís, incorporated with valuable elements taken from esoteric cosmology.
The theory posits that vibration underlies all phenomena, and that harmonic factors govern universal forces.
In the 1700-1800ís 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.
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 Gannís system of trading and market order.
Baumring found and elaborated the system of scientific cosmology at the root of Gannís Law of Vibration.
There is no other Gann teaching that gets close to the depth of Baumringís work.
Where To Begin?A Guide for New Users to the Best Use of this Website
We realize that the website of the Institute of Cosmological Economics is a vast and complex site, so we have created the following introductory guide to help new readers quickly and easily explore the site and identify the key sections and information they are seeking. If you are new to our work, this page should help talk you through our general content, and direct you to what you are most interested in.
If you read through this introductory guide, it will direct you to all the most important sections of this website, where you will find further detailed index pages focusing down upon the more specific content within each section. For our older clients who are wondering what’s new on this new ICE website, see What’s New? page which will quickly isolate all the new content added on this site.
An ICE Membership Account opens up a toolbox of special site functions that are not otherwise accessible, like bookmarking pages, saving favorites, putting books on a wish list to study or buy later, and a map that shows what sections of the site you have and have not visited.
ICE Membership is 100% Free, and ICE Members are given 3 FREE PDF Books upon initial signup. This gives you a first taste of our materail at no risk to you. Select your 3 PDFs from a list of 30 of our most popular research works and download them immediately.
Members are also given access to a Members Only 30% OFF Discount List which includes another 30 of our mid to higher range courses. This allows new people to try a few books at a discount to confirm their quality and usefulness.
While this detailed introduction is probably best read in sequence, it can also be jumped around in whatever order your interest leads you. Each section interlinks with each other in various ways, and further leads deeper into our site through specific research topics, books, courses and categories of interest.
For a more general introduction to the ICE, our history, mission and activities, we suggest you read the About Us section which tells our story, leading back a couple generations from our origins with Dr. Baumring in the 1980’s, through our development onto the Internet back in the mid-90’s.
Our Article Index collates all of the ICE articles scattered throughout the site that are written by the institute and its authors. This index contains some of the most educative and informational content on this site.
Study Guides: What To Read For What Purpose
There are many different areas of research and application within our numerous fields of expertise, so in order to help you identify the material you need to accomplish your specific goals, we have created a series of study guides, which recommend the most important books and courses for each specialized field of research, study, or trading.
In terms of trading, we have broken down the different approaches into clear categories, with specific references and recommendations as follows:
If you are a long term investor, there are specific books and information services which will best suit your wider perspective and risk parameters.
If you are speculator looking for intermediate term opportunities to position trade big, powerful trends, there is a different set of studies and services which will best serve your needs.
If you are a swing trader primarily focused on one or several particular markets, looking to trade continuous reversals of the short to intermediate trend, a different set of materials will be essential for you.
If you are a short-term, day-trader will require a different tool set to analyze and capture intraday swings. We have broken down these different approaches and created categories of books, courses and forecasts which will best serve each type.
However, for those who are not able to simply categorize themselves as a particular type of trader, but are instead interested more abstractly in philosophy, or in various schools of thought, technical application, scientific theories or esoteric speculations, we have guides which approach the problem from such alternative angles.
In this situation, we work from points of theory, considering varying conceptual approaches, categorical fields of knowledge, or technical specializations, and provide research guides through a vast labyrinth of ideas, helping researchers to discover the material they have long sought, but did not where to find, or if it even existed at all. A summary of these types of alternative approaches would be:
Those simply interested in technical analysis, either in theory or application, and wanting to study the Great Masters of Technical Analysis, like Gann, Elliot, Andrews, Tubbs, Cole or Bayer. We have ALL the greatest work of the old Masters.
Those wanting proprietary trading systems that they can set up to run automatically and developed to be more efficient with further research.
Those interested in cycles and wanting to learn to model markets in that way.
Those interested in scientific approaches to the market, looking at physics and mathematics as the factors providing the structure or energy behind market action.
Those interested in more esoteric subjects like market geometry or financial astrology, looking for some kind of deeper order behind market fluctuations.
Those hard-core financial researchers, seeking to crack the code behind the markets. For these, we have the widest range of advanced studies looking at the core of market phenomena, order and causation, the essence of the study of Cosmological Economics.
The final category makes up the core of our primary clientele, for as one develops a taste for REAL knowledge of this kind, one tends to work from the superficial to the deeper layers of phenomena, finding first correlations, and then seeking causation. This quest inevitably leads beyond a mere study of financial markets, to a study of the Universe itself, and man’s relationship to it. This subject was named Cosmology by the great Pythagoras, founder of the Western scientific tradition. The type of researcher who will find the most value in our site is the one who takes THIS path, our specialty, which we have named “Cosmological Economics”.
The ICE catalog is divided into several key levels of material explained as follows:
The Showcased Authors are published exclusively by the Institute of Cosmological Economics and represent the best of the best works within this field of financial market analysis and forecasting. Most were written by living authors, or authors who lived recently, and to whose works we hold the exclusive distribution rights.
Important Authors, Important, Classic & Popular Titles
These are other authors whom we consider to be very important, or whose works are popular with our clientele. Some will be the old Masters of the Golden Age of Technical Analysis like George Bayer or Dr. Alan Andrews, Donald Bradley, Sepharial, Tubbs, Cole, Elliot and the like, whose classic works we keep alive for ongoing generations of researchers and students.
Alternatively, they may be other modern authors whose work we do not publish, but which we respect and feel deserves inclusion in our catalog, such as the work of Andrew Pancholi, Bill Meridian, Earik Beann, Michael Jenkins, and other friends and associates of ours who also specialize in elements of our field. While our Showcased Authors represent under 50 works in our catalog, these others reach out to another 100+ excellent works.
The Translation Society
The Translation Society is a joint partnership project with our more esoteric and scientific sister institute, the Sacred Science Institute, and our associated 501c3 non-profit foundation, The Sacred Science Preservation Foundation. This project began back in 2004 and was funded by a group of approximately 100 dedicated Gann researchers. It brought together top scholars to translate seven important titles from both German and French, specializing in highly important source works in vibrational harmonics, esoteric cosmology, and Pythagorean science, critical to the deepest market research.
The ongoing project will continue to translate many more important works into English in the coming years, using our non-profit status to raise funds through tax deductible donations and to obtain academic and government grants in the future.
ICE Bookstore: Author, Title, Category & Keyword
The above sections serve to direct people towards very specific goals or to lists of our most popular and important works, centered around the field of financial analysis and trading. However, our entire catalog spans many times the number of listings mentioned above. In total we have over 400 titles, mostly our own publications, but we are also continuously adding other works which we consider to be important, published by ourselves or others.
Our main Bookstore Index is organized according to category, with very specific listings to help clients find the exact type of books they are looking for, or to direct them to highly specialized categories and relationships of which they may not be aware.
These categories extend far beyond financial market subjects into advanced fields of science and metaphysics, upon which the most advanced financial theories, like those of Gann, Bayer, AstroEconomics, the Law of Vibration, Market Geometry, Cycle Theory, and Cosmological Economics depend.
Our catalog is the most complete collection of books on these important subjects in the world.
Our Bookstore Database can also be browsed or searched by Author, Title, Category, or any Keyword, allowing many different ways to explore our vast collection to discover fascinating, new material about which you probably never knew.
Research & Discussion Forums
Another large part of our site are our Discussion and Research Forums. Many of our forums are Private Forums accompanying specific, proprietary courses by our Showcased Authors, serving as a classroom environment where students of each book or course can interact with the author and other course owners, asking questions, sharing ideas and working together with other members. Forums attached to specific courses have restricted membership and can only be accessed by owners of those courses.
We also have Public Forums which are open to the general public upon registration, where anyone can discuss ideas and share research with a group of their peers interested in similar ideas and topics. A wider group of our general books and research topics are discussed in these forums, and ongoing commentary upon many of our more popular books are shared here. Please feel free to register for these Public Forums and to share your work and ideas.
We also are developing a peer reviewed Article Archive, where outside researchers can submit their research papers to share with our peer reviewed community, to receive feedback and engage in public discussion about their work.
Aside from these central fields where the bulk of our site content exists, there are a handful of administrative and informative links that clients may find useful to make full use of the site, communicate with us, or other things:
A continually updated news page, where anything new is added at the top, so you can always check in and review new items that may not have been here on your last visit.

Search The ICE Site
A search engine capable of searching ALL items, pages, books and material on this website.
Books by and about the geometrical techniques of Dr. Alan Andrews, developer of the Pitchfork, the ML Line and a number of excellent geometrically based tools.
For 20 years Dan Ferrera has been one of our most respected market analysts, with a Masterís 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 Gannís work
Forex has become very popular, with trades not so limited by time and swings not as volatile as other commodities.
Forex is essentially a commodity, so its markets follow general commodity rules and many facets of Gann analysis work just fine for the Forex exchange.
We provide techniques, tools and systems particularly focused on the currency markets.
Law of Vibration
Research works or market systems based upon Gannís theory of the Law of Vibration. Includes many scientific and esoteric work getting into harmonics, cycles, and cosmology as it relates to causative systems of order behind the markets. Primary reference and research section for those studying deep Gann analysis.
Since Plato the principle of Aether, a subtle universal plenum filling space and responsible for propagating forces and energies, along with Earth, Air, Fire and Water, has been a core universal element.
Until the late 19th century, scientists, including Einstein, and most cosmological systems, incorporated the principle of Aether as being fundamental.
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.
Much science from the 1800ís 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.
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.
