The time window is a main consideration when investing.
Position trading methods will be of importance to the long term investor because he will want to know when to expect his greatest returns, and when to exit or hedge his position.
Much of Gannís work focuses on long term market movements, as he always tried to see the BIG picture.
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.
Gann Reading List
In the 1940ís Gann published a 2-page list of about 90 Books that he stocked and sold to his students, known as "W. D. Gannís Recommended Reading List".
Each book contains some component of Gannís system of knowledge essential for piecing together his system.
Any one book may have one simple idea critical to Gann's perspective.
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.
THE ARCHEOMETER: Key To All The Religions and Sciences of Antiquity; Synthetic Reformation of All Contemporary Arts.
The Archeometer was used by the Ancients for the esoteric Canon of ancient Art and Science in its various architectural, musical and scientific forms. A respected elaboration of a Universal System by a great 19th century esotericist.
Metaphysics We have completed several translations of important books on metaphysics.
These include 4 works on universal harmonics by Hans Kayser, as well as "The Archeometer, a Key to All Science", "The Natural Architecture, the essence of Hermetic and Pythagorean science" and Eberhard Wortmannís "Law of the Cosmos".
Cosmological phenomena influence the human mind via energetic propagation of subtle influences.
The mind has power over subtle energies through advanced planes of thought and consciousness.
Gann advised a study of mental science to see how cosmic influences affect matter and consciousness.
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.
Our Origin & History
SSI has long and deep roots going back several decades through a number of organizations which culminate in this current institute and website. Looking furthest back we must credit Donald Ian Mack with the origination of the bookstore which SSI, in part, still represents today. Donald Mack was a market scholar and collector with one of the most extensive libraries of rare financial market books in the world. He originally founded the Library of Investment Study back in the 1970’s and opened the first bookstore devoted solely to books on the financial markets.
In the early 1980’s he met Dr. Jerome Baumring, to whom he gave access to his extensive library as a research archive for Baumring’s intensive study of the financial markets while attempting to reverse engineer W.D. Gann’s legendary trading systems. Dr. Baumring devoured the 5000 books in Mack’s collection, and after cracking Gann’s system, they developed a partnership which integrated Mack’s library and bookstore with a new educational program in advanced Gann analysis created by Dr. Baumring. They named their new venture The Investment Centre.
Between Mack’s and Baumring’s massive 20,000 volume combined financial libraries, a bookstore filled with the largest selection of old and new works on every branch and element of the financial markets, their reprint series of the rarest and most important works of the old masters, and Dr. Baumring’s educational program on Gann Analysis, The Investment Centre became one of the world’s premiere educational establishments and knowledge resources for materials on investing, trading and forecasting the financial markets. All of this occurred at a time well before there was any kind of education available on stock or commodity market analysis and trading at any university, and well before the advent of quantitative analysis and market theory which is beginning to be studied academically today.
Customers visited from around the world to build their investment libraries, and experts in many fields bought rare editions or one-of-a-kind manuscripts, such as R. N. Elliot’s original manuscript of Nature’s Law which Mack sold to Robert Prechter for $25,000. We still come across many people today who share fond memories of visiting the bookstore and spending hours perusing the stacks of rarities back in the old days, or professionals who credit it for setting them on their first path to a serious study of the financial markets.
In the late 1980’s Donald Mack moved to England where he continued his efforts to bring greater public exposure to these classic works through a series he developed with the London Financial Times called The Trader’s Masterclass Series. Donald edited and introduced this series of classics which were available through the late 1990’s, but which sold out and now command collector’s prices. With these works again long out of print, we continue to make available affordable reprints and digital versions of exact facsimiles of the original editions of these highly sought after works for new and younger researchers and analysts who have yet to benefit from this ageless wisdom.
In 1992, Dr. Baumring passed away and the Investment Centre Bookstore closed its doors once and for all, ending the era of old book stores and wonderful libraries as the world transitioned into the digital information age…
Our First Internet Presence
After Dr. Baumring’s untimely death, his widow wanted to assure that the essential research materials required for Baumring’s courses would remain available for his students, and that Dr. Baumring’s work would be preserved for future generations interested in the theories of W. D. Gann. She asked Dr. Baumring’s closest and youngest private student, William Bradstreet Stewart, to become custodian of Baumring’s work and library and to continue publishing his courses and the essential reprints and research materials required for Baumring’s advanced studies. Stewart agreed and continued to reprint both the core collection of critical source works personally selected by Baumring for his educational program as well as Baumring’s own course series, initially keeping them available only for the group of 100 students left behind by Baumring.
In 1995, as the Internet began taking form, Stewart thought it looked like an interesting medium to use as a central means of distributing this collection of research materials and Baumring’s Courses, potentially making them accessible to a larger public. He was surprised to discover a wide group of people from across the globe on this early Internet, who were deeply interested, not just in the financial elements of Baumring’s work, but also in the rare and historical scientific and esoteric treatises in the catalog.
Before long there were scientists interested in non-traditional theories, college professors, occultists, and engineers developing alternative technologies, along with financial analysts and traders, all desiring these rare books and seeking even more related materials. The catalog continued to grow to over 400 titles as Stewart reprinted an ongoing series of rare works from his own and Baumring’s extensive libraries, and the clientele continued to diversify as more people began exploring the Internet.
Since 2/3 of these works were not directly related to financial markets, but covered scientifically orientated and esoteric literature, Stewart chose a more neutral name representing the combination of these two fields, Sacred Science Institute, for the new web presence so as to not overly identify the catalog solely with financial market research.
Over the next 20 years, Stewart expanded the Sacred Science Institute library to more than 15,000 volumes and the catalog of publications to over 500 titles, continuously discovering and reprinting new rarities from historical fields of interest, as well as developing new authors, primarily in the fields of financial analysis and trading.
He also developed a program to translate rare and important historical works from foreign languages into English through the Sacred Science Translation Society which proceeded, with the cooperation of over 100 contributors, to translate and publish seven import works in the fields of harmonics, esoteric science and cosmology, gaining the recognition of the Los Angeles Times for these efforts.
As the catalog developed through the years, it became evident that there were two very different sets of clientele with fundamentally different and sometimes conflicting orientation, the financial analysts and the scientific and esoteric researchers. While many Gann based researchers were deeply engaged in esoteric studies, other mainstream financial analysts were put off by the esoteric material represented by the Sacred Science Institute.
Similarly, many scientific and esoteric scholars were put off by the strong orientation towards financial market analysis, a subject they considered to be an overly materialistic application of scientific and esoteric wisdom. It was therefore decided that it was due time for a split of these two segments of clientele, giving each its own website and institute representing its more specialized focus.
Creation of The Institute of Cosmological Economics
The Institute of Cosmological Economics was created in 2008 to take over the publication and representation of the financial segment of the Sacred Science catalog, publishing the works of the old masters, Dr. Baumring’s courses, and the line of new books and proprietary trading courses written by the group of modern authors specializing in advanced financial market analysis and trading. To visit the Institute of Cosmological Economics, see www.cosmoeconomics.com.
Sacred Science Institute would focus upon the publication of the scientific and esoteric works in the catalog, and develop and represent new authors specializing in more scientific and esoteric research. These two sister Institutes each now have their own websites and mailing lists where clients can subscribe to only the very specific categories information in which they are interested, without exposure to the cross-over categories outside of their field.
Ferrera's Collected Outlooks 2008 - 2019 are like instructional manuals in the Art of Financial Forecasting, providing educational studies on market theory and technique by a highly respected forecaster.
They expand the toolbox of even seasoned traders, providing new tools and deep insights into cycles, technical analysis and Gann forecasting.
Dr. Alexander Goulden
Dr. Goulden, a Cambridge educated scholar, takes an individualistic approach to market analysis, focusing on deep principles and exploring trading techniques based on foundational systems.
This deep, many layered approach provides non-correlated confirmation of Gann from different angles, such as financial astrology based on ancient systems.
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.
Baumring Financial List
Dr. Baumring compiled long reading lists even more comprehensive than Gann's, comprising works having key elements directly applicable to Gann Theory and Cosmological Economics.
Any student wanting to explore particular fields in depth will find Baumringís lists to be indispensable, since they over important but unfamiliar topics.
Sepharial (Walter Gorn Old) was an associate of W. D. Gann and Blavatsky who produced a number of works on esotericism and financial market analysis, his Arcana & Keys being the most rare.
We reprint Sepharial's original collection of the Arcana, The Kaleidoscope, a 1000 page collection of articles from the British Journal of Astrology.
Franz Bardon's magical works present a path of initiation through 3 levels of the Tarot.
The first book teaches internal training, the second teaches the science of Magical Evocation, and the third teaches transcendental methods of the Kaballah.
Frabato presents biographical informatioin about Bardon, with commentaries by friends and students.
Systems of numerology date back to ancient Egypt, India and Israel. Hebrew number science, Gematria, was woven through the sacred texts of Semitic religion.
Plato used numerical codes in his works, and Thomas Taylor elaborated the advanced systems of Pythagoras in his "Theoretic Arithemetic of the Pythagoreans".
Sacred Geometry explores natural order representing foundational templates of the cosmos, via special proportions like "phi", the Divine Proportion, ubiquitous throughout nature as a primary generating and ordering principle.
Musical harmonic ratios dominate sacred geometry, showing how nature is a form of frozen music.
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.
Providing systems to train the mind in the retention of concepts, lists, ideas and the like, Memory Systems can simplify much modern school study involving memory.
We explore systems used by ancients and moderns to memorize entire books, lists of items, and concepts, as a sub-section of our accelerated and advanced systems of learning.
In ancient times science and philosophy were interwoven, such as in the ideas of Pythagoras, Plato, Aristotle, the Alchemists.
Philosophy is at the root of human knowledge, and we specialise in systems of thought and ideology, particularly concentrated upon alternative and classical works.
Time is a primary consideration in science, philosophy or financial market theory.
Our collection of titles on Time in all of its elements covers subjects which range from Hyperdimensional Time Cycles to Relativity and Spacetime.
Books selected by Dr. Baumring and W.D.Gann provide deep insights into market analysis and scientific or esoteric cosmology.
