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.
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.
W.D. Gannís original work is a critical element for any Gann researcher, but many find Gannís deeper work challenging without help from well-seasoned analysts and traders.
We offer valuable secondary works presenting and developing Gannís ideas: the best teachers in this field are not so much competitors, but fellow contributors to ongoing research.
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.
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.
Kayser, the greatest scholar of harmonic science, was far ahead of his time, penetrating the depths of ancient esoteric Pythagorean Tradition to present a universal Law of Vibration.
His "Textbook of Harmonics" provides the most valuable insight into Gannís Law of Vibration of any resource.
We have so far translated four of his works into English.
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.
Sacred Science in Theory & Practice
Cosmology and the Seven Liberal Arts
The Quadrivium & Trivium
In the world view of Idealism, or the Law of Vibration, there is what is known as an “emanational cosmology”. From the initial state of the unmanifest pure field, the first thing that exists is pure vibration, such as is posited in String Theory. What is vibrating is pure energy, though this energy may be of a very subtle, even unmanifest form. In this pure form, this energy is like pure number, or as Gann often quotes Faraday saying:
“There is nothing in the Universe but mathematical points of force”.
As these points begin to move in vibration they establish harmonic relationships between each other, or ratios, and these relationships can now be defined as Music or Harmonics. As the Harmonics increase, these frequencies or tones also begin to relate and interact with each other now creating another dimension of space characterized by Geometry. As this Geometry is further dimensionalised through time and motion, we now get Astronomy. These four subjects were defined by the great forefather of science, Pythagoras, and are called the Pythagorean Quadrivium.
This Quadrivium can be looked at in two different ways, first as this emanational cosmology wherein the simplest variable become sequentially more complex by adding additional ranges of dimensionality, activity and relationship, evolving a progressively more sophisticated universe as a result of the pure vibration being subjected to greater degrees of universal order through relationship.
These are traditionally called the four Classical “Liberal Arts”. Amusingly, most people who get a “Liberal Arts” education, and indeed most college professors who teach the subject, if asked what exactly the Liberal Arts are, will be unable to give you the correct answer.
The Seven Liberal Arts: A System for Understanding Our Universe
There are seven traditional Liberal Arts, the four Classical Pythagorean of the Quadrivium:
which govern our material world.
And the three Medieval Liberal Arts, or Trivium:
which govern the mind.
These 7 Liberal Arts in the ancient and traditional system of knowledge, upon which all of the original university systems were based, are considered to be THE foundations of ALL knowledge, generally the Quadrivium pertaining to the cosmos, and the Trivium to the mind.
One might argue that there are many other branches of knowledge beyond these, but that would be misperceiving what is actually meant by these principles. From a traditional perspective, each of these Arts was considered an entire systemic methodology for communicating the complete order of the universe itself, from a particular perspective. They are, in essence, systems of Symbolic Logic, capable of defining by their values and principles the entire system of laws of the cosmos.
Windows into the Center: The Mathematics of Geometry, or Music of the Celestial Spheres
Each of these systems is like looking at a diamond through a different facet, while all showing the same diamond. As such, this then implies that each of these systems is capable of deriving its own system of language to communicate the principles and laws of the whole according to its own values. This being the case, it becomes evident that any universal principle can potentially be communicated in multiple languages or through different variables.
Thus, there is then a correspondence between a variable in one system and the equivalent variable in a different system. So, taking the Quadrivium, that means a number can be represented by a sound, which can be represented by a form, which can be represented by a motion, and extending it to the Trivium, it means that each prior variable has an equivalent Logic or sequence, which can be represented by a symbol (Grammar), the combination of which inevitably represent a communicable meaning (Rhetoric). In Esoteric Tradition, these multi-categorical cross-relationships are defined by what is called the Law of Correspondences.
One could also consider the relationship of the Quadrivium as the 4 quantitative elements as relates to matter or physical phenomena, while the Trivium represents the qualitative orderings systems as pertains to mind. Since the Law of Vibration seeks to correlate ordering principles of cosmic phenomena with the psychological patternings of mind, the Doctrine of Correspondences would then determine a correlation through the systems of symbolic logic between the physical phenomena and mental phenomena, or in our context, a relationship between physical ordering systems and mental systems, both psychological and social, being mass psychological. Of course, this is a gross simplification of a complex metaphysical and scientific doctrine, but it serves to give a sense of the basic premise.
Process-based Creationism & The Evolution of Complexity
Looking at it emanationally, we have gone from an abstraction of pure unmanifest, mathematical vibration to a state of fully manifest ordered structure all the way down into the mind of man and patternings of mass psychological phenomena in only 7 progressive steps. When metaphysical or spiritual doctrine describes “creationism” it is really to this sort of a process it should be referring, not to some medieval, uneducated concept of a God with a grey beard waving a wand and magically manifesting the universe and man in only 7 days. Sadly, the religious believers of today are even more disconnected from the true esoteric doctrine that would give real meaning to their spiritual dogma than even the materialistic scientists.
In reality, these “7 days of creation” referred to in Genesis are equivalent to these 7 stages of manifestation from pure abstraction to manifestation in the physical plane and the mind of man. This process is not actually so far off from much mainstream scientific cosmological theory when it is put in the proper context! And indeed, it is even a clear form of “evolution,” though in a much broader and more sophisticated sense than is understood by the limited concept of evolution today, really a cosmological evolution. Even Darwin, when his ideas are fully explored, did not necessarily propose a fully mechanistic system without any kind of natural intelligence behind it.
All modern science is but a derivation of these original esoteric theories of the Ancients, and can be considered a subset of a greater wisdom that has been lost as science attempted to wrestle itself away from its roots, desperately grasping at half the equation, materialism, while metaphorically throwing the baby of idealism out with the bathwater of misunderstood metaphysics.
THe Law of Vibration is Emanational Cosmology
So, in essence, the Law of Vibration IS this emanational cosmology using multiple systems of symbolic logic to define a progressive system of natural order emanating through fundamental laws as the universe manifests from a Unified Field defined by a form of String Theory.
It projects from the unmanifest abstract planes to the manifest material planes, which are composed of nothing but slowed down forms of energetic vibration perceived as solid matter, and works its way down into the very structure of the mind of humanity itself. This matter is fully controlled and influenced by the underlying vibratory principles of universal order, as communicated through the specific interrelated variables of any one of these multiple systems of order: mathematics, harmonics, geometry, astronomy, logic, grammar and rhetoric.
Further, following the logic of this emanational evolution of universal phenomena, since it is governed by a perfect logical and mathematical order, the final results are considered to be similarly ordered as the principles that create that order. Hence, this leads to the premise that the financial markets are predictable, as are all things in such an ordered universe. All that is needed to read or decipher this order is an understanding of the logic of the symbolic ordering systems behind any element of that structure.
Learning to Read the Universe Like a Book
If this is accomplished, the “scientist” or better, the Natural Philosopher is capable of reading the universe like a book. In fact, in the Alchemical Tradition, of which Sir Isaac Newton was the most famous proponent, this process is called “Reading the Book of Nature”. This language of symbolic logic has been called “The Language of the Birds,” a mythical, magical, perfect divine language, used to communicate the essence of universal phenomena to the Initiated, symbolized by the birds speaking into the ear of the Initiate. Understanding this, is it such a mystery that Newton considered his Alchemical studies to be of the greatest importance of all of his work?
The Gann Pyramid, Square of Nine Essentials. By Daniel T. Ferrera. A groundbreaking course on the Square Of Nine, Gann's most mysterious calculator.
This course explains the essence of this fascinating tool and its useful principles, with detailed expositions of key applications to the market. Gann's most secret and powerful trading tool!
Spirals Growth & Decay
The Spirals of Growth and Decay, Exposing the Underlying Structure of the Markets. By Daniel T. Ferrera 2005.
Utilizing deep concepts from nonlinear mathematics to mechanically describe the structure of price waves in financial market data, linking the ideas of shock, balance, instability, static and dynamic form in all trading markets.
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.
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.
In Gannís day the two primary focuses for trading were stocks or commodities, but most principles taught for stock equally applied to commodities.
Without ignoring Gannís commodity work we provide works focusing on equity markets and individual stocks, or discussing the stock market, revealing valuable techniques with a scientific or esoteric perspective.
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.
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".
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.
In Ancient times, art was more than a form of entertainment or decoration, being a means of preserving various forms and levels of knowledge, including scientific principles.
A core element is called "The Canon", whereby through ratio, proportion, shape and symbolism, an entire system of universal knowledge can be encoded and preserved.
Esoteric and Pythagorean sciences love to play with the value and meaning of numbers, from the complex mathematical theories of the Platonists, via Fibonacciís ideas, to number progressions, ratios, proportions, sequences, and chaos theory.
We specialize in the overlap of numerical and esoteric systems positing a more integrated cosmology.
The Precession of the Equinoxes, of vital importance in the ancient world, relates to the passage of our solar system through 12 cycles of 2620 years over a 25000 year period.
Ages of change (as in The Age of Aquarius) occur every 1 degree, taking 72 years, with longer cysles such as the Platonic Year, the Yugas, and the ages of Iron, Bronze, Silver and Gold.
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.
