Studies In Astrological Bible Interpretation. By Daniel T. Ferrera. An interesting exploration of the coding of astrological and astronomical cycles into the Bible.
Provides an analysis of the book of Genesis, exploring coding systems by which astrological symbolism is veiled, showing how Gann and Bayer used these secrets in the markets.
The Golden Age of Technical Analysis extended from 1910 through 1960, when the greatest analysts lived and developed foundational principles.
Dr. Baumring selected the best works for his students, believing it best to study from the great masters.
Books by masters of the past have as much value for students today as they did back in their own day.
Modern astronomy is a pale derivative of the true "logic of the cosmos", Astrology, the science of all-pervasive relationships between cosmos and man.
Early proponents of "astronomy" were ALL students of the Astrological arts, from Ptolemy, to Copernicus, Galileo, Kepler, Tyco Brahe, and Newton.
Glass Bead Game
This derives from a book by Hermann Hesse, representing an underlying symbolic cosmology that is the basis of all science, philosophy, spirituality and thought.
Hesse imagines a game created using universal symbols to represent flows of thought or information.
This is a metaphor for systems of esoteric symbolism underlying all knowledge.
The wisdom teachings of the Egyptian "Thoth" (the Greek Hermes) were preserved in the Hermetic Arcana, translated from Greek by Ficino during the Renaissance.
These trace back to the likes of Pythagoras and Solon (Socratesí teacher), filtering through many channels to become the basis of Western Philosophy, Science and Esoteric traditions.
Yoga is an Indian system of human development with many branches and schools.
The word Yoga means "yoke", as in yoking a horse to a carriage, and Yoga gives methods for man to link himself to the Divine.
Yogic systems include Laya Yoga, Bhakti Yoga, Raja Yoga, Jnana Yoga, Kriya Yoga and Karma Yoga.
Zen and Chan are similar terms from Japanese and Chinese systems of Buddhism, but they originate from the Indian word Dhyana, loosely translated as "meditation".
Zen is a mind science, giving direct access to the core layers of mind.
The origin of Zen is in India, home of Buddhism. Allan Wattís called it "Hinduism stripped for export".
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.
Approaches to trading begin with choice of a time window.
Day or intraday trading focuses on short term swings, generally not holding positions overnight.
Although Gann, trading before the electroinc age, did not favor short term trading, his techniques do work on this level, since similar patterns exist on every time frame whether very small or very large.
Cutting edge Space and Solar Researchers, Muriel and Louis Hasbrouck's Space & Time Forecasting techniques are STILL more advanced than those of NASA or the current scientific community.
They produced 50 years of Market Forecasts with a 90% accuracy rate and forecasted Space Weather, Earthquakes and Geomagnetic Storms.
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".
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.
Rudolf Steiner, founder of the Waldorf Schools, developed Anthroposophy, a science based on psychic perception of hidden elements in nature and reality.
Olive Whicher and George Adams extended projective geometry into a study of spiritual to material spaces.
Students of Gann find invaluable insights into Steiner's system, as taught by Dr. Baumring.
Baumring Metaphysical List
Dr. Baumring compiled long reading lists much more comprehensive than Gann's, covering all areas of the markets, science and metaphysics.
Baumring read 1800 words a minute and had a photographic memory, so he was able to collect a vast set of source works in his 10,000 volume library.
Around 500 are highly relevant to Gannís work.
The Hebrew system of Gematria pervades the Bible concealing secondary teaching in a number code read only by initiates into this deeper system of knowledge.
W.D. Gann and George Bayer were two individuals deeply immersed in this form of Biblical decoding, developing systems of mathematics, prediction and astrology out of their readings.
In the esoteric tradition the use of symbolism as a communicative form has been taken to its highest representation.
Reading the symbols of the ancient systems takes great study and the development of intuitive insight, which can take many years of training.
Ultimately, the symbolist learns to read the world itself as the Grand Symbol of the Mysteries.
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.
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.
SCIENCE The Translation Society project has English translations of important books on harmonics and cosmology.
These include 4 major works on harmonics by Hans Kayser, "The Archeometer, a Key to All Science", "Natural Architecture, the essence of Hermetic science", and Eberhard Wortmannís "Law of the Cosmos, decoding Platoís Timaeus".
The vortex, a key element of 19th century aether physics, was critical to W.D. Gannís market science and was taken up by great thinkers like Walter Russell and Edwin Babbitt.
Vortex and Toroidal energy theory provides a dynamic space-time model of energy fields from human and plants to planets, suns, solar systems, and galaxies.
