The most important Gann Course, from Baumring who cracked Gann's complete system. A study of the Cosmological System behind Gann's work. A PhD study in Gann Science!
Gannís courses were generally categorized as either stock or commodity focused, but all principles taught for stock would equally apply to commodities. Stock traders who ignored Gannís commodity courses could miss out on many important techniques.
Our Commodioty Trading material provides valuable techniques with a scientific approach to analysis.
Science provides vital concepts for analyzing financial markets. Studies of momentum, moving averages, pattern formation, energy, speed, power, strength, impulse, gravity centers, electro-magnetism, solar phenomena, geomagnetic field influences, aether physics, vortex systems, vibration, and wave mechanics are of significant relevance.
A fundamental principle of Cosmological Economics is the interconnection between galaxies, solar systems, stars, and planets, along with their interactive influences.
For example, the rotation of our galaxy is responsible for temperature fluctuations on Earth as a result of cosmic ray variations as we rotate through the spiral arms.
Electromagnetism is a basis of Physics, but there remains mystery about the true nature of electricity.
Our books look back to the 1800ís where the subject involved vibrational physics and astronomical energy fields.
Gann was conncerned with the Law of Vibration as a principle of natural phenomena.
The solution to Gann's Law of Vibration from the 1909 Ticker Interview. Penicka analyzes Gann's exact words correlating them with the cutting edge science of Gann's day to develop a system which identifies the "mathematical points of force" behind all market action.
A system of order based on atomic data generates master numbers for each market 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.
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.

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?

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.
Gannís Mass Pressure
W. D. Gann's Mass Pressure Forecasting Charts. By Daniel T. Ferrera. The Mass Pressure Formula is one of Gann's most guarded secrets.
Mass Pressure indicates bullish and bearish trends according to Gann's Master Time Factor. These charts are based on Gann's philosophy that "the future is nothing but a repetition of the past".
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.
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
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.
Scott dedicated 7 years to analyze 100 years of Dow Jones data to decode the causative effect of planetary influences.
He analyzed the background energetic effects of astrological elements to project influences. His methods need NO prior astrological knowledge nor the use of a horoscope to trade the Global Index, Stock, Futures and FOREX markets.
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.
There are many important non English Language esoteric and scientific works which we have in our archives but have not, as yet, been translated into English.
Some important books in this section have already been translated by our Translation Society, and we intend to translate others in the future.
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.
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.
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.
