Keys to Successful Speculation by Daniel T. Ferrera is an applied technical trading system using the essentials of risk management with Gann based swing trading.
This course has everything a trader needs to go from "0" to being a successful trader, including account management, risk management, trading strategy, entry & exit signals.
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.
Kayser was a leading 20th century scientist who made a profound mathematical, geometric and philosophical study of Harmonic Science. Available in English though our Translation Society, Kayser's works explore deep principles of Pythagorean Harmony and Order.
His books give critical insights into Gann Theory and The Law of Vibration.
A generalized term for any kind of metaphysical methodology for predicting future events. Examples would be psychic phenomena, reading crystal balls, scrying mirrors, numerology, astrology, and many more such divinatory techniques.
These systems are popular amongst esoteric traders and forecasters seeking insight into future events.
Private groups and organizations that specialized in particularly practices and studies within their groups. These can range from the Freemasons to the Rosicrucians, the Alchemists, Temple Initiates and moreÖ.
Cosmology provides the primary basis for our theoretical system of market order and scientific analysis. Moving beyond modern ideas, our approach to Cosmology involves Pythagorean, Esoteric, Eastern, and Ancient metaphysical theories of cosmology.
Our ICE collection focuses on ancient concepts as well as modern alternative theories of the universe.
A branch of Chaos Theory, fractals are beautiful self-similar patterns mathematically generated from non-linear equations.
Fractals apply directly to financial market phenomena, and time-periodic market charts show that similar patterns permeate each time level.
Gann and Baumring saw common patterns foreshadowing coming events within consistent structure.
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

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.

2019 PFS Grain Forecast Bulletin by Daniele Prandelli. A Swing Trader's Forecast Based Upon Gann's Key Principles. The PFS Forecasting Model gives a model of the most expected highs, lows, turns and impulses and is then combined with Key Price Levels as determined by Gann's planetary longitude lines, creating a tradable forecast for the coming year.
Plapcianu followed Baumring's lead into the core of Gann's Cosmological System, cracking Gann's Squaring of Price and Time.
He quantifies Gann's innermost system demonstrating how markets move in multi-dimensional Space & Time, including new and sophisticated trading algorithms which generate 4000% annualized returns.
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.
Magick in the Western Esoteric tradition represents a Western equivalent to the internal training systems that are found in Eastern traditions, but is focused on the development of human powers and abilities.
These include mastery of physical, emotional and mental bodies, control over the elements and development of psychic perception and influence.
Our catalog has fascinating fictional works which relate to our various fields of interest and present deep ideas from a dramatic perspective in a readable context.
Books like Gannís "Tunnel Through the Air" fall into this category, along with Alchemical allegories and metaphysical mysteries.
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.
We may be indebted to Ancient Greece, but Greek knowledge derived from Ancient Egypt, and Hermes Trismegistus, the Thrice Great Hermes is the Greek name of Thoth, the Egyptian God of Knowledge.
Hermetic teachings were first translated into Western languages by Ficino at the dawn of the Renaissance, forming the inspiration for modern esotericism.
We don't cover all theories of modern or academic physics, but specializes in unusual books relating to applications connected with such topics as financial forecasting, and alternative or ancient cosmology.
We cover theories like electromagnetism, energy grids, vortex systems, wave theory, vibration, relativity, power laws and hyper-dimensions.
