For 20 years Dan Ferrera has been one of our most respected market analysts, with a Masters 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 Ganns 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.
Techniques, tools and systems particularly focused upon or the Elliot Wave pattern.
Analytical systems, techniques and tools based upon the use of geometry are significantly effective when applied to the analysis of market trends.
The Law Of The Cosmos, The Divine Harmony According To Plato's Republic/Timeaus, and The Platonic Riddle Of Numbers Solved contains 100s of sophisticated diagrams on Sacred Geometry, Pythagorean and Platonic Number Theory, Harmonics and Astronomy with analysis, elaboration of Universal Order and Cosmic Law.
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.
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.
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 Ganns system of trading and market order.
Baumring found and elaborated the system of scientific cosmology at the root of Ganns Law of Vibration.
There is no other Gann teaching that gets close to the depth of Baumrings work.
Recommended TitlesThe most important and impactful publications from the SSI library.
On the following list of Recommended Titles you will find our top selection of recommended SSI publications. These titles have proven to have made the most impact on the lives and livelihoods of our valued customers, and stand out as our best liked and most popular works.
The first 3 books, Erikson's Trading with Selene's Chariot, Ferrera's Spirals of Growth & Decay and Bennett's Law of Vibration Gann Series are THE 3 BEST items in our catalog! It is not just that these are the most practical or important books, as we have many of those, but each of these contains an insight that is simply extraordinary. Each of these books presents a major, significant breakthrough in market knowledge, proving that there is a system of order and logic behind the markets that can be determined scientifically, and projected into the future.
As a result, these particular works provide specific applications based upon their original insights that is unequaled in any other book or course that we or anyone else publish on the markets. If anyone in academia ever discovered such principles of order within the markets, they would be awarded a Nobel Prize in Economics for their work. In our opinion, these principles are that substantial, but are unlikely to be accepted in academic circles due to a paradigm bias that resides within the materialistic orientation of mainstream science.
Sean Erikson: Selene’s Chariot
Selene's Chariot stands out as our most practical trading course, containing a set of tools that are theoretically profound in their implications while being so simple and practical that a teenager could use them. The first of these tools projects the exact slope of the forthcoming trend from the point of the last high or low, in advance! Using a tool based upon celestial mechanics, it is able to determine, within bars of the new trend, the exact slope angle of any and every trend in any and every market. This is one of the most simple and mind-blowing principles we have ever seen. It also demonstrates, without question, that celestial mechanics control market trends.
The Toolkit, much like an Andrews ML Line & Pitchfork, creates a channel which contains the full breadth of market movement during that swing. It provides two projected termination points for the move, the 1st of which stops the move 75% of the time, and the 2nd which catches most the rest. It also projects the likely time turning point for the next 2-3 turns. Trading with Selene's Chariot provides, hands down, the most useful set of trading tools for intraday to long term Swing Trading that we have seen. This is our #1 Trading Course! The Best of the Best!
This next course, Dan Ferrera's famous Spirals of Growth & Decay, is the single most brilliant and mind blowing general principle behind all market order that we have seen. It provides a structural map of all market price swing action, generating a sequence of counts in the upward, growth, and downward, decay movements of the markets that are always consistent. It is most similar to Elliot Wave theory, though several quantum levels of precision beyond it, with wave values that are mathematically specific and count sequences which are limited to definitive counts without random extensions.
This mathematical precision removes all subjectivity from the analysis as there are no random variants, only the underlying mathematical sequence of growth and decay within the market itself. It generates limited set of predetermined counts that EVERY market sequences through on EVERY time frame. Spirals is a simple and exquisitely beautiful universal ordering principle that undeniably exists behind the structure of ALL markets. This is Dan Ferrera's Magnum Opus, his Life Work, done before his work on Gann, and still his most important.
The technology is not as precisely focused as Selene's Chariot because its perspective is wider, more like a Map than an autodriving system that is reading and navigating the passing road. But this map tells you exactly where any market is and is going in it's growth and evolution, thereby alerting you to where the immanent turns and changes in the road (market) are coming. Just as the map and the navigator work together in a car, so do Selene's and Spirals work together in beautiful integration laying out the coming road, and giving the tools to navigate it.
Without a doubt this course is Daniel T. Ferrera's most unique and important published offering to the world of Market Forecasting and Analysis. Originally limited to only 50 copies, and 12 years in the making; The Spirals of Growth and Decay is what Dan considers to be the summation of his life's research, and the basis for all of the forecasting work that he does.
Dr. Lorrie V. Bennett: The Law of Vibration Series
Dr Lorrie Bennett's Law of Vibration Series is different from the last two recommendations, as it is not so much based upon one single brilliant insight or principle as it is an attempt to present the scientific mechanics of the entire system behind W. D. Gann's theory of the Law of Vibration. Dr. Bennett carries on and expands the earlier breakthrough work of Dr. Jerome Baumring, but Lorrie lays out the ideas that Baumring taught in a logical, clear and well presented thesis developed in great detail, with elaborate explanations, documentation and illustration. What Baumring only hinted at and refused to explain, Bennett lays bear for all to understand.
As such, Dr. Bennett's work is presented in a 4 Volume series, beginning with introductory material on Theoretical Wave Mechanics in the Law of Vibrations by the Patterns, followed by her major breakthroughs in Gann Analysis. This was inspired by her breaking some complex codes used by Gann to conceal his deeper secrets. Dr. Bennett spent 20 years cracking Gann's system and will be presenting every detail she can manage to explain through her 4 volume series.
Vol 2, Numbers will present the 13 Sacred Numbers behind Gann's Cycle and Number Theory. Vol 3, Planets will decode Gann's most mysterious book, The Tunnel Thru The Air, and will develop a new astronomical/astrological system, recovered from the Ancients which generates timing signals based upon advanced celestial mechanics, Solar physics, and astrological theory. Vol 4, Geometry will be the summational work which will tie it all together integrating the numerical and astronomical theory with the pure geometry of the markets.
This is THE MOST ADVANCED theoretical work that we have in our catalog, and explores in its study the breadth of knowledge that is known of the markets, providing a scientific basis to the causal and ordering principles behind the markets. It is the most cutting edge work we have and the strongest extension of the work of Dr. Baumring whcih is the core inspiration of this site. Dr. Bennett's 4 Volume Gann Series is the equivalent of a PhD program in the science behind the market.
This first in a four-part series lays the foundations for the understand of the science of W. D. Ganns Law of Vibration.
A deep and valuable course, filled with information and tools that most analysts have never seen before. It is based upon an exercise originally presented by Dr. Jerome Baumring in the 1980s as an essential first step in the development of an understanding of how underlying wave components, or cycles, are combined to produce a composite or summational wave.
TWO OF OUR MOST POPULAR & DEEPEST GANN RESEARCH TITLES
The next group of books represent some of our most popular, interesting and useful courses across our client base, so that anyone with an interest in these subjects will be sure to love these books.
First is Eric Penicka's Gann Science, which takes us back to Gann's first published interview in The Ticker, the piece that Gann is most famous from. Penicka approaches Gann's Theory from the principles discussed in The Ticker interview. Like Dr. Baumring and Dr. Bennett, Penicka explores the sciences and known references from Gann's time and reverse engineers a system of tools that may explain how Gann made his famous forecasts and traded 10,000% in 1 month.
Penicka presents a solid foundation in the sciences and perspective of Gann's time, then leads into the process by which trading tools are developed based upon the Periodic Table and Gann's explanation of the Law of Vibration. This is an excellent introductory course to Gann Analysis for someone new to the subject and takes one a long way into a deep science that few understand.
This course offers a solution to the Law of Vibration, as Gann originally presented it in his interview with Richard Wyckoff in The Ticker and Investment Digest, upon his first public appearance in 1909.
The author takes Gann's own words and tracks through the science of his day to uncover the meaning of Gann's explanation that
Ferrera's Path of Least Resistance is the most popular of Dan's Gann works. It provides the best analysis and explanation of Gann's mathematical and geometrical tools that we have seen. This work came as a result of Ferrera having done a complete reread of Gann's entire works, as he has initially done in his work for Mysteries of Gann Analysis. Dan took a deep dive in this second pass and pulled the curtain further off Gann's technical tools in this book that he has done before. That is why we consider this book THE TEXTBOOK of Gann Analysis.
The most comprehensive elaboration of W.D. Gann's most powerful technical trading tools.
It presents all of Gann's foundational mathematical and geometrical techniques expressed in his master calculators, angles, trend channels, squaring processes, pattern formations, spiral charts and much more, leading to the clear identification of profitable Trade Setups, important trend indications, and critical price/time culminations.
With 300 pages of detailed text, over 150 charts and diagrams, and 190 pages of the rarest Gann's supplementary material, we consider this 500 page treatise to be THE TEXTBOOK on Gann's geometrical techniques that no serious Gann analyst can afford to be without.
Roberts' Market Vibrations is our primary work that addresses that strategy of Position Trading. Gann was known to begin his students with Swing Trading, then move them on to Position trading when they were more advanced. This book presents the methodology of using leveraged position trading to generate large profits in accounts with small trading capital. If someone without much cash wants to learn to make a lot, this is the course which teaches how to do it.
Roberts presents a simplification of Gann Analysis, moving away from complex principles to simple and clear, but highly effective signal generating analysis as taught by Gann. The approaches uses options trading to at careful selected trade set up points, as defined by Gann to generate large returns averaging about 10 time investment. It focuses on a longer time period, about 3 months to 1 years, and intends to capture significant trends.
This is also an excellent course for beginners and intermediate traders who have not found the success or profit they seek, as a new approach to find the long sought success they desire.
This course provides a trading strategy that allows for large returns from low risk investments.
The strategy employs straight forward analytical techniques explained in Ganns How to How to Make Profits in Commodities to identify high value trade setups which can be employed using highly leveraged options strategies to generate large but safe returns.
It does not require any prior Gann knowledge or any past trading experience and can be easily understood and applied by any trader, new or seasoned, to great effect with very little time or difficulty.
The Keys to Successful Speculation is another of Ferrera's most popular courses, this time focused specifically on trading. We have had more comments that people make money with this course than we have from any other over the years. This course presents everyone one needs to know to begin Swing Trading according to Gann's instructions. Ferrera refines and improves Gann's swing trading system creating new tools and signals to profitable swing trade any market and any time from from daytrading to long term investing.
He presents a master's class on Risk Management, THE most important aspect of trading that all too many do not understand. This is our most popular swing trading course, and is an excellent book for a beginner or one wanting to master the process of trading. This is the best place to start if you are not sure how to trade and want to master the mechanics.
This book presents a trading manual which will clearly teach anyone, including those with absolutely no prior knowledge of the markets, Gann, or forecasting in general, to successfully trade in any market, beginning with very limited capital, as little as a few thousand dollars.
This book is not esoteric, and is not focused on abstract analytical and theoretical principles, but is totally application orientated, specifically outlining a clear trading strategy incorporating all necessary principles of money management, charting, risk management, swing trading, signal generation, the use of options and much more.
Tim Walker's How to Trade Like W. D. Gann is another of our most popular swing trading courses. For those who cannot afford Ferrera's Keys or Erikson's Selene's Chariot will find another master class on swing trading presented in this excellent text. Walker takes Gann's course on his Mechanical Swing Trading Method, and follows Gann's trading for over 15 years from 1917 to 1932, through the most volatile markets in history.
Walker compiles the data for these years from old newspapers, then analyzes EVERY ONE of Gann's trades over the 15 years, showing the rules and application of his swing methodology applied to ever market environment. We have known traders who called this approach like an ATM machine, and this is the foundation upon which most other swing trading systems are built. A classic foundational work which should be studied by ALL traders.
A detailed analysis of the entire sequence of 322 trades from 1915-1931 presented in W.D. Gann's US Steel trading course, broken down into clear and concise rules for application in today's markets.
Walker dissects Gann's methodology, reveling deeper rules than are apparent in Gann's thin explanations in his original course.
This Gann Trading Course makes an intensive study of one of Gann's core lesson, called The Method for Trading the Overnight Chart. This lesson, is today published as part of the Mechanical Methods & Systems section of his Stock Market Course, and consists of 9 Rules followed by 15 years of trading examples on US Steel.
Our 2 Most Interesting & Unusual Translation Society Works
The next two books move away from the market subject and represent a couple of our most interesting works from our Translation Society.
Hans Kayser's masterpiece on the science of vibration, Textbook of Harmonics. If there were ever to be a TEXTBOOK on the Law of Vibration, this is it. There is no more fundamental and important source work in the science of harmonics and vibration, and in particular for the application to the markets, than Kayser's Textbook.
The first release in our project to translate the complete works of Hans Kayser.
The Textbook is THE MOST IMPORTANT WORK ON HARMONICS AND VIBRATION EVER WRITTEN!
This course is the equivalent to a Ph.D. in technical and historical harmonics and musicology, and there is no work ever created or conceived which touches the depth of knowledge and scientific application of this masterpiece!
The Natural Architecture is a mysterious cosmological text written and published by a French Secret Society, seeking to unify the complete sciences and esoteric philosophies and cosmologies of the ancient civilizations. This work takes numerical, geometric and astronomical riddles and principles and leads the reader through a tour of the deepest science of the esoteric tradition. There are many profound principle applied to markets and more in this deep and mysterious work.
Ferrera's General Outlook for 2019 is our most popular market letter. All traders know that in times of global financial crisis, market confusion, and economic instability, it is critical to obtain the best knowledge.
In it's 11th year, Dan Ferrera's Outlook is based on experience developing advanced technical models giving market insight equal to the best advisors.
Applied Gann Theory
Supported by the cosmological theory behind Ganns work, we also specialize in practical tools needed to analyze and trade the markets.
This category will specifically focus upon the books and courses that provide very specific and applied tools from Ganns toolbox used for real time trading.
There is a close correlation between Astrological Economics and Cosmological Economics. We have one of the largest collections of works on Financial Astrology (Astroeconomics) in the world.
These studies are very important in developing wider theories of causation, and our catalog contains most works of value written on the subject.
Long Term Investing
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 Ganns work focuses on long term market movements, as he always tried to see the BIG picture.
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.
Among professional traders, risk management is understood to be the absolutely most fundamental element leading to successful trading, because with proper risk management one can use randomly generated signals and still trade successfully.
This is done by limiting ones losses while letting ones profits run.
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.
Hans Kayser was a leading 20th century scientist who made a deep mathematical, geometric and philosophical study of the Science of Harmonics.
Available from our Translation Society, his books explore the deepest principles of Pythagorean Harmony and Order, giving critical insights into Gann Theory and The Law of Vibration.
The Sacred Science Translation Society began in 2004 as a project to translate important and rare works on Cosmology and Esoteric Science into English.
Donors and Contributions raised $40,000 to translate masterpieces from French and German on critical subjects in Harmonics, Geometry, Esoteric Mathematics, and Ancient Cosmology.
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 1800s, incorporated with valuable elements taken from esoteric cosmology.
The theory posits that vibration underlies all phenomena, and that harmonic factors govern universal forces.
Natural Order has from ancient times looked deeply into principles of order behind nature and the universe, like phyllotaxis which governs the placement of leaves on plants, the harmonic ratios between the placement of the planets in the solar system, or the spirilic mathematics of galaxies.
Natural order reveals magical relationships in the natural world.
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.
