Our W.D. Gann, “W. D. GANN: MAGIC IN THE MARKETS” Course is presented in-person only, and not available online in any way. Each technique presented was decoded from the public or private writings of W.D. Gann. “Magic” is comprehensive and robust, including Gann’s entire original system. Every technique fits with the other methods like a puzzle piece, tied together by Gann’s Astro-Numerology control-system. Extensive back-testing of each technique and system is presented for most markets & timeframes. Substance, content, and detail are extreme, and the applications consume all of the time in the seminar. References to the origin of each technique in Gann’s work and much, much more are expounded in the accompanying 375+ page illustrated manual.
The inclusion of trans-mundane, orphic schematics that were communicated to W. D. Gann through early 1900s freemasonry sets “MAGIC IN THE MARKETS” on a pedestal all of its own. It is the key to Gann’s uncanny ability to forecast trend, cycles, price, market timing, and the other methods of Gann lore. But it also makes ‘Magic’ different from anything publicly available labelled ‘Gann.’ Those who’ve “studied Gann” for 10 to 20 years have found “Magic” an original, unique, paradigm shift.
“MAGIC IN THE MARKETS” focuses on variables believed to causes movements in financial markets. This approach differs from typical quantitative analysis and most algorithmic trading in two important ways. First, the data that Gann followed is exogenous, or external to financial market data. This means that the market analysis and signals Gann used cannot be found in any other field of technical analysis or trading. Secondly, Gann’s architypes and formulas lead to very specific constants, which are often lacking in quantitative analysis. In common quantitative analysis, the best trading system parameters are randomly tested for, or “brute forced.” These tests admittedly may not produce the best fit. Though the foundation of W.D. Gann’s approach was arcane and esoteric, the end results is precise mathematical formulas that use objective, consistent, and predictable variables. In this manner, Gann’s technical analysis can provide an edge over most quantitative and algorithmic approaches. For the professional analyst or active trader, Gann can give the edge of predicting the market in advance, because esoteric variables lead market movements. The trader employing this approach is alone in leading the pack, while every other quant and machine-learning guru is just a better follower of past market data.
Recipients of the course who have benefited most from it have been professional analysts, active traders and investment managers who have integrated W. D. Gann’s techniques into an existing approach to analyzing financial markets. Their main motivation for taking the course is usually to fill in the gaps in their approach to the markets that all other fields of technical analysis cannot. When we first began to search out and develop W. D. Gann’s trading methods, it was because we noticed unseen patterns surrounding how deep a pullback from a trend would go, when a market would be most likely to turn, How measured moves could be gauged, and direction and duration of trend. Publicly available technical analysis failed to measure, quantify or predict these patterns.
Attendees of the course should have a basic knowledge of trading and a thought-out approach to the financial markets before taking the course. Though Gann did teach a complete trading approach by combining 3 or 4 of his unique techniques, trying to learn both Gann’s exogenous system AND the basics of approaching financial markets at the same time might be overwhelming. The easiest and quickest way to begin benefiting from these techniques is to take one or two of Gann’s methods and synthesize them into your existing trading or technical analysis to fill in the missing pieces not provided by traditional technical analysis.

The “Magic In The Markets” course exegetes and replicates, as best as possible, the original trading and analysis techniques of the late trader W.D. Gann; and not necessarily the trading methods of the author or presenter of the course. Traders using Gann’s techniques may not be able to duplicate the trading results of W.D. Gann for many reasons, including, but not limited to, skill of the individual trader and the changes in financial markets since Gann traded. Recipients of this course receive hypothetical, back–tested data and not actual trading results. In an attempt to include all the markets and time frames that Gann traded during his lifetime, course includes far more applications to market instruments and time frames than the author or presenter can possibly trade. Course author & presenter has sources of income apart from trading. “Magic in the Markets” contains both Gann’s combinations of trading & analysis techniques and standalone techniques that can be integrated into existing analysis or trading approaches. Hypothetical back–testing of the performance of the function of analysis techniques are displayed pictorially for many markets and time frames on recent market data.
