Jerome Baumring

Dr. Jerome Baumring was introduced to Gann while in traction recovering from a car accident which severely injured his spine (ultimately the cause of his untimely death). While in the hospital, someone gave him a copy of Perry Kaufman’s Commodity Trading Systems and Methods in which is presented a copy of Gann’s May Soy Beans chart which caught his eye. Dr. Baumring noticed on this chart a tiny almost indistinguishable point and arc which had been drawn with a compass on the chart. This sparked a flame in his imagination leading him to commit the next three years, 16 hours a day, 7 days a week to the understanding of Gann’s trading methodologies.

It was evident to Dr. Baumring that Gann was using techniques which were not outrightly presented in his courses, and that the key to deciphering his cryptic writings lay in an understanding of "how Gann used words". He realized that he would have to study everything that Gann himself had studied in his time in order to obtain a frame of reference coincident with that of the Master. Dr. Baumring approached Donald Mack and requested the use of his massive investment library, while accumulating an extensive personal library of old scientific, metaphysical and market works which Gann most likely would have had access to himself. Dr. Baumring read over 5,000 books in those years, a feat only accomplished with the help of a photographic memory and an ability to read 1,800 words a minute.

After three years of indefatigable research, even with his expertise in pharmacology and mathematics, his gift as a mechanic, and a background in Zen and martial arts, he had hit an unassailable wall. Faced with the prospect of failure, he awoke late one night to hear an inner voice direct him to his charts. As he sat down at his chart table, this voice walked him step by step through the final barriers to understanding.

After this breakthrough and its integration into a complete system which he called "Gann Harmony", Dr. Baumring turned to the markets to prove the validity of the system. He began with a $25,000 account and in less than two years compounded his investment into over a million dollars. Having proven that the system was capable of producing the promised returns, he then verified that it was applicable to all markets, doing a full analysis of and trading 18 futures markets and a selection of stocks. In order to prove Gann’s theories on a larger scale, Dr. Baumring traded for a silver hedging company. This was the time when the gold and silver markets exploded to their all time highs. Dr. Baumring had forecast the top of the silver market to within a three minute window, and implemented a sophisticated strategy allowing him to transition from a position 200 contracts long to a position of 200 contracts short in a screaming exponential market. As the timing point for the top approached with the market moving as only commodities do at all time highs, a gentleman he was advising was hesitant to sell at the timing point and asked if he could wait another minute. His hesitation cost him $60,000.

With his understanding of the markets now complete, Dr. Baumring began looking for another challenge. One of the unfortunate byproducts of his new understanding was the lack of people capable of communicating on a stimulating level. Like Gann, Dr. Baumring also felt an obligation, what he often referred to as a "karmic debt", to, as Gann said, pass on the enlightenment that had been heaped on himself in abundance. There seemed to be one resolution, to share his understanding of "Gann Harmony". Teaching this system would certainly be a challenge, would balance his "karmic debt", and at worst, would develop some stimulating interaction. We think it best to let Dr. Baumring describe for himself the results of his decision, so the following quotes have been extracted from his seven page announcement of a series of Courses he called The Investment Centre Stock & Commodity Courses – A Distillation of the Insights and Wisdom of W. D. Gann. (the complete Announcement can be viewed on the Internet at www.sacredscience.com)

"Beginning with this announcement of our coming very thorough Course of Instruction in W. D. Gann’s almost unknown methods of analysis of stocks and commodities, we feel very strongly we must resolve the misinformation and misconceptions of this great, great man’s exceptional methodology. To put a stop to so much that has been wrongly propagated (generally by mostly sincere people) as to what Mr. Gann’s approach involved (such as astrology, angles, his numbered squares, cardinal crosses, and on and on), we unequivocally state that to the best of our knowledge nobody to date has ever dealt with, or has been able to even accurately explain The Law of Vibration which Mr. Gann with great authority said was the key to explain all phases of market action. Without properly understanding the basic laws relating to Vibration, of what value could any or all of the propagated so-called Gann concepts possess?"

"This Course begins with a thorough examination of The Law of Vibration, and thereafter progresses to Number Set Theory (Numerology), followed by the Law of Proportion as demonstrated by Geometrical applications, and going onward into the areas vital to Gann analysis such as harmonics, the mathematics of music, angles… When the area of Angles is studied,… (we) will clear away for the first time the misuse of the technique that has been propagated as "Gann Angles". To accomplish this we will turn to Gann’s own writings where he states in no uncertain terms that there is much more than just the Diagonal Angle, or as he says, ‘There are three kinds of angles – the vertical, the horizontal and the diagonal angle, which we use for measuring time and price movements’. Of the three, the diagonal angle is the least important." from Jerome Baumring
