W. D. Gann's Courses
Collected Courses of William D. Gann, by W. D. Gann. 1920 - 1954. This is the most complete and best organized collection of Gann's Master Courses, his most important writings.
Without these, Gann is impossible to understand! We've collected all the missing pieces and reorganized them back into Gann's original order.
W.D. Gann’s original work is a critical element for any Gann researcher, but many find Gann’s deeper work challenging without help from well-seasoned analysts and traders.
We offer valuable secondary works presenting and developing Gann’s ideas: the best teachers in this field are not so much competitors, but fellow contributors to ongoing research.
Eric Penicka: Gann Science
The author correlates Gann's exact words to the science of Gann's day to illustrate his phrase "stocks are like atoms". Offering a system of "mathematical points of force" governing the structure through which the market moves, the emerging science of Periodic Table atomic elements provides a system of order through which to forecast.
One can learn much by studying the lives and achievements of the great thinkers who have shaped human history and culture.
In our biographical library we have a collection of rare texts which complement theoretical study by allowing deeper insight into the characters and deeds of many significant philosophers.
Magick in the Western Esoteric tradition represents a Western equivalent to the internal training systems that are found in Eastern traditions, but is focused on the development of human powers and abilities.
These include mastery of physical, emotional and mental bodies, control over the elements and development of psychic perception and influence.
The Sun is the most dominant influence in our lives, and a primary source of influences from the cosmos transmitted to the Earth.
Ancient and esoteric traditions had advanced theories of solar influence.
We cover theories concerning all kinds of solar effects.
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 Gann’s system of trading and market order.
Baumring found and elaborated the system of scientific cosmology at the root of Gann’s Law of Vibration.
There is no other Gann teaching that gets close to the depth of Baumring’s work.
Sacred Science in Theory & Practice
What is Time?
“The thing that hath been, it is that which shall be; and that which is done is that which shall be done: and there is no new thing under the sun.”
– Ecclesiastes 1:9, King James Bible
Time is indeed a most fundamental element of the Law of Vibration. While discussing this critical subject of time, there is another similarly interesting perspective that this science forces the consideration of, which is the cyclical nature of time.
This is a different hierarchical positionality of consideration than the prior theories of the multidimensionality and simultaneity of time. For this perspective deals not with hyper-dimensional abstractions beyond the perception of most humans, but instead relates to the fundamental structure of the common sense of time experienced every day by every human and by society in general.
This common perspective of time is generally perceived as and considered to be linear, with time progressing from the past into the future in a straight line, generally referred to as the “arrow of time”.
In fact, this assumption is so prevalent in the mind of man, that most people have never even so much as considered that there may be an alternative possibility to something that seem so utterly obvious in our conscious experience.
However, there is an age-old alternative to this linear conception which is the idea that time is not linear, but is circular or cyclical. The Biblical quote above demonstrates that this cyclical concept of time is as old as our written history, and that such fundamental temporal considerations are as old as humanity itself. For such considerations have a significant meaning to us as individuals and as societies, for the implications of concepts have a potential affect upon our understanding and experience of reality itself.
Concepts of Circular Time in the Everyday
However, taking a step back from such philosophical ponderings, circular time is a concept that we are all so experientially familiar with that we actually take it totally for granted. In actuality, ALL concepts and calculations of time are based upon the purely cyclical perspective. That is because our time is determined by nothing but astronomical phenomena.
The Wheels of Planetary Time
The day is but one rotation of Earth on its axis, a year one revolution around the sun, a minute a division of the size of the Earth by the rotational period, where it rotates 1 degree every 4 minutes. The 7 days of the week are derived from and named after the 7 traditional planets: Sun (Sunday), Moon (Monday), Mars (Tuesday - “Martes: in Spanish), Mercury (Wednesday or Mercoles in Spanish), Jupiter (Thursday, Jeudi in French), Venus (Friday, Viernes in Spanish), Saturn (Saturday).
The Circle of Seasons
Similarly, the cycles of time profoundly affect us every ongoingly throughout the year. The never-ceasing progressing of the seasons from Spring to Summer, to Autumn to Winter effect our work, our play, our vacations, our schooling, our planting, our harvest, our holidays, and every pattern of living on the most fundamental level in our lives. Entire industries are governed by this cyclical sequencing, and the accompanying weather patterns provide one of the most fundamental influences in human existence. Indeed, our lives can be seen to be almost totally controlled by astronomical cycles, even though few people naturally think of it in this way… anymore.
But to go back to a more expansive perspective, the meaning of the fundamental principle of cyclical time is that rather than existence being a progressive movement in a linear direction, there is a repetitive process that is experienced in both the life of man and of civilizations that has definitive elements which, when understood, can provide a context and a deeper understanding of the world we are mysteriously born into without instructions or explanation.
Cyclical Time & The Human Race
In this context, there is a pattern to all experience that falls into a structure that is definable according to the periodic sequence of events as they progress in time. Every person has particular experiences in their life that are consistently time determined, like stages or growth and development as a child, puberty, high school, college, job, marriage, career, retirement and death. These may not be experienced as cycles by an individual, but if you now zoom out and look at a wider body of individuals characterized as generations, you will see that the “cycles of life” are continuously repeated in the same way for each new generation, though with a slightly different background context.
The science of demographics is based upon this principle, looking at the stages of development of generations of people, and the phases of their life, which then also have a direct experience upon the nature of the society within which they exist. When we look at systems like Social Security, it is common knowledge that the productive output of each new generation is intended to help support through taxation the older generation which preceded them. In fact entire systems of government policy, taxation, and incentives for marriage and family are based upon the evolving cycles of generations and demographics.
Fads, Trends & The Development of Religions
Similarly, expanding our focus again to look at civilizations, it has been determined that all social structures, whether they fads, styles, movements, religions, or even civilizations have cycles of life and decay that can be calculated and potentially predicted when studied across history.
Modern Day Islam
As an example if one looks at religion, and considers perhaps the current problems in Islam with the radical extremists causing violence across the world and fighting and killing amongst their own internal factions, and one considers the age of Islam from its founded in the 7th century C.E, one would call that religion approximately 1400 years old.
Now if one looks at Christianity when it was at an age of approximately 1400 years old, one sees prior to that the violent wars ranging from the earlier Crusades, to the development of the Protestant Reformation wherein Catholics and Protestants were violently at war with each other for generations, slaughtering each other in the name of god. Or the advent of the Catholic Inquisition which ruthlessly tortured and murdered its own people under the name of spiritual purity, not unlike the actions of ISIS or the Taliban today. It does not take a genius to see that religions, like people grow through phase of development and maturity according to their age.
The Great Cycles: The Precession of the Equinoxes
Civilizations similarly go through these phases of immaturity, growth, flowering, decay and death as has been demonstrated by numerous historians, like Oswald Spengler, Anatoly Fomenko, and Francois Masson. These studies have shown that there are correlative cycles between the periods of different civilizations throughout history, for instance, with the phases of Rome’s development being correlative to those of the United States.
And as one zooms out further, these cycles becomes even more dominant affecting the whole of humanity as the planet progresses through different cycles. The most dominant and famous of historic cycles are what are called the cycles of the Great Year.
The Four Stages of Civilisation
Throughout all of history and across all civilizations there is a story of the four ages of civilization, the Golden Age, the Silver Age, the Bronze Age and the Iron Age. In the Golden Age, mankind achieves a height of intellectual, spiritual and societal evolution and these states degenerate through a sequence of the ages until in the Iron Age (in which we are currently considered to be since somewhere around couple thousand years B.C.E.).
This history is detailed in the famous work by MIT professor Giorgio De. Santillana and Hertha Von Dechend called Hamlet’s Mill which traces the historical mythology of these four cycles of life and their relations to the astronomical phenomena of the Precession of the Equinoxes, a 25,900 year cycle supposed caused by the “wobble” of the Earth’s axis. This great cycle, called the Great Year was tracked and calculated by all great ancient civilizations, who recorded it and even aligned their great monuments according to particular astronomical positions relating to different phases.
The Age of Aquarius
It is most commonly known today by references to the Age of Aquarius into which we are currently transitioning in a 2160 year cycle from the Age of Pisces. Each of these 12 cycles of 2160 years is said to possess a different energetic quality which informs the nature of civilization for that cycle, causing predictable elements to manifest in the world according to each particular phase. This Great Cycle is considered to be of the most importance in the determination of the nature of reality over massive spans of time, affecting the rise and fall of civilizations and phases of development of humanity. It is even known to affect the transition between periods of geophysical upheaval and stability like earthquakes, the rising and sinking of continents, ice ages, and other forms of geophysical upheaval or stability.
Smaller cycles within his Great Cycle are further calculated by harmonics of this great cycle, giving numerous divisions of time with different kinds of meaning and influence. These smaller time cycles can be seen to affect various elements within society from political trends, to religions change, to economic development, scientific progress, industrial innovation, artistic inspiration, and, of course, financial market highs and lows.
Without making any kind of assumption of a connection between the astronomical events which define these cyclic periods and the cycles which are seen in society and civilization, even simple calculations by academic historians will show that the periods where these kinds of trends tend to recur are strikingly similar to the harmonics of these astronomical cycles.
Coincidence? Perhaps… But even so much as a minor sense of correlation should be enough to provide significant food for thought in any curious person to warrant a further investigation.
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.
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.
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.
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 Gann’s work focuses on long term market movements, as he always tried to see the BIG picture.
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 one’s losses while letting one’s profits run.
Ancient civilizations teach us much, but knowledge of ancient cultures is academically perverted and misrepresented.
Great monuments like the pyramids and temples far exceed modern architecture, incorporating sciences not even considered today.
Our catalog has many rare and important works on Ancient Civilizations.
We have many books on initiatory systems and the exploartion of human potential.
The term "occultism" is often misunderstood by those who fear the unknown. It simply refers to "hidden knowledge" and the various esoteric traditions, such as Theosophy, Anthroposophy, Magick, Hermetics, Tarot, and Astrology.
In the Alice Baily works channeled by The Tibetan, Djwhal Khul "occultism" encompasses all high esoteric science.
Books exploring the human spirit, its state and development and relationship to higher planes and beings. General works on spirituality that are otherwise hard to categorize.
The Canon refers primarily to an ancient esoteric system of knowledge and cosmology encoded into temples, artifacts, art and monuments.
The Egyptians had a specific Canon to lay out the grids upon which they designed their art, and there are also canons of proportion used in the Renaissance, as well as by later artists, geometers and musicians.
In Magic Squares the addition of each of the rows and columns add up to the same number.
From Ancient times thinkers have explored these mathematical mysteries, uncovering deep ordering principles underlying numbers and geometry.
Within his esoteric market analysis systems Gann used a "Squares of Nine" and a "Square of Four".
Esoteric and Pythagorean sciences love to play with the value and meaning of numbers, from the complex mathematical theories of the Platonists, via Fibonacci’s 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.
