Poor Business, Damaged Crops, Strikes and Bank Failures in 1923 Predicted by Prophet

February 13, 2013

March 5, 1923

William D. Gann is 85 Per Cent Right in His Forecasts, His Followers Declare


Foresaw Date of End of War and Election of Harding and Wilson

“I knew you would be coming in to-day,”  was the greeting the unheralded reporter received on entering the office of William D. Gann at No. 49 Broadway.  ”When I looked at the calendar this morning and saw it was the year 1923 I knew I would receive callers from newspaper and publicity people.”

Mr. Gann predicts other and more important things, such as stock quotations, end of wars and elections of Presidents, with an accuracy that has made a recognized authority in Wall Street.  He predicted the election of Wilson and of Harding, and he told of the abdication of the Kaiser and the end of the war to the exact date six months beforehand.


His daily Supply and Demand letter gives to his clients scientific forecasts on stocks, cotton and grain.  And the clients who have followed his advice for twenty years testify that eighty-five per cent of his predictions are correct.

“I figure things by mathematics,” Mr. Gann explained.  ”There is nothing mysterious about any of my predictions.  If I have the data I can use algebra and geometry and tell exactly by the theory of cycles when a certain thing is going to occur again.

“If we wish to avert failure in speculation we must deal with causes.  Everything in existence is based on exact proportion and perfect relationship.  There is no chance in nature because mathematical principles o f the highest order lie at the foundation of all things.  Faraday said:-’There is nothing in the universe but mathematical points of force.’ ”

Mr. Gann’s business outlook for 1923 forecasts a generally low average caused by strikes and threats of war in foreign lands and poor crop conditions.


“While there will be spurts of activity and some fairly good business during the spring and late summer, the general outlook is not encouraging and there is no indication of any boom in business this year.

“The foreign situation will play an important part in our business affairs as our government will have a lot of trouble on account of secret enemies in foreign countries.

“From April to June a serious falling off in business and financial troubles and bank failures are indicated.  During April the laboring classes will be very much dissatisfied and strikes are threatened.

“During the fall a serious business depression will set in and the general outlook becomes cloudy.


“The summer will see storms that will damage crops and by October business conditions will be bordering on a panic.

“In December loss of confidence on the part of the public and dissatisfaction with the administration at Washington will cause a serious wave of pessimism to fall over the entire country.”

In 1921 Mr. Gann predicted that President Harding would be a war President, and he still holds to that prediction.

“I hope I am wrong,” he said, “but the forecast still stands and has until 1924 to be fulfilled and mathematics do not lie.”

Mr. Gann predicted the election of Woodrow Wilson because the cycle had come back again to a man with a name beginning with W and ending with N.  Washington having been the first and last President with those two letters placed in that way.

The forecast which told of Harding’s election has been explained by Mr. Gann as follows:-Senator Warren G. Harding was born November 2, 1865.  His name contains some of the most powerful fame and wealth-producing letters.  The name Warren, beginning with W and ending with N, is very fortunate and gives him power to overcome obstacles and opponents.  His name and numbers show that he will be conservative and act only after due consideration.  His foreign policy will help him to win.

“His fortunate numbers are 2, 4, 6, 8, and 11.  Note that the Declaration of Independence on July 4 and inauguration day on March 4 both fall on one of his fortunate numbers.  The election takes place on the second day of the eleventh month, both fortunate numbers for him.”


On the other hand Mr. Gann predicted the defeat of Governor Cox because his name contained only one fortunate letter.  There has never been but one President with the initial C.  That was Cleveland.  But the letter H recurs every tenth cycle.  William H. Harrison was the ninth President.  R.B. Hayes was the nineteenth President, so there  was nothing left but for Warren G. Harding to be the twenty-ninth.

It might be well for the political parties to consult Mr. Gann before the nominations are made in 1924 to find out what letter is due to win in this election.  They could then choose a man with the right kind of letters in his name.

Mr. Gann gets calls every day from men and women prominent in all walks of life asking him to cast their horoscope.  He tells politicians whether or not they will be elected and solves other problems for clergymen, bankers and statesmen.

Which edition of “How to Make Profits in Commodities” do you have?

August 16, 2012


Did you know there are eight different editions of W.D. Gann’s “How to Make Profits in Commodities”?

While the last five editions are very similar except for dust jackets and printing number, the two I am going to tell you about may surprise you.

In 1951, W.D. Gann sold his book business and copyrights to Ed Lambert, his partner.  They had printed an edition of “How to Make Profits in Commodities” at the same time.


As part of the business deal, W.D. Gann updated “How to Make Profits in Commodities” with forecasts of the coming years.

A total of eight charts in the back of the book were changed showing forecasts for the next 5 years!  Quite a confident and calculated move.

Would you purchase a book showing a reliable forecast for the next 5 years?

The updated charts included May Corn, November Soybeans, Coffee, October Cotton, Cotton Seed Oil, October Eggs, Rubber, and May Wheat.

Did the forecasts come true??

How did W.D.Gann come up with these forecasts?  The Ephemeris, his master cycle charts, or his mechanical method as explained in the Commodity Course?

That is up to you to find out-Let us know with a comment what your findings are.

So Ed Lambert, the copyright holder,  printed out a second version of the 1951 “How to Make Profits in Commodities” with the updated charts in the same year.


But there are differences…

It’s not as easy as looking at the copyright page-as they are EXACTLY THE SAME.

The biggest difference is the addition of the forecasts, but there is an easier way to tell which version you have.

What color is the cover of the book?  Blue or Purple? The purple book is the earlier 1951 edition.

There are also variations in the placement of page numbers over the updated charts.

Lastly, Ed Lambert changed the advertising in the rear of the book.

Below are pictures illustrating some of these differences between the two 1951 versions, note the binding colors.

Happy Hunting!

December Cotton Chart Package

January 24, 2012

big chartwmx2

One of our primary goals is preserving W.D. Gann’s working materials.  We are forever preserving the December Cotton charts, made by W.D. Gann, by scanning and reprinting them for you.

W.D. Gann made thousands of charts throughout his lifetime.  Some were studies, others for keeping data, and others for forecasting and trading.  The December Cotton Chart Package contains two weekly charts containing the same dates.  One was kept in a binder, and the other was rolled up and obviously pieced together as the market was trading.

W.D. Gann used binders to hold most of his stock and commodity charts, but there were hundreds more loose charts and many rolled up charts as well.  Many trunks of rolled up and stacked charts are part of Gann’s legacy.

This chart was one found in one of the trunks, rolled up and a bit rough around the edges.  It was very well used and exhibits the tell tale grease marks from being rolled and held in the hand for extended periods of time.

It is fascinating to view the difference between the two weekly charts contained in this 4 or 5 chart package.

The Anaconda Connection

January 10, 2012

Our most recent chart release from the vault is the Anaconda Mining Company package.  This is a special set due to many factors.  Anaconda’s connection to precious metals,  wealthy and powerful people, and it’s strange link to W.D. Gann make this an interesting study.

Anaconda 5 chart set plus booklet

Anaconda 5 chart set plus booklet

Five charts are included in this massive set for your study.  We have also released from the vault a reproduction of the newspaper containing a little known interview with W.D. Gann.  The 1919 article deals with numerology and politics and may be quite different from anything you have read before.

Anaconda is mentioned in “Truth of the Stock Tape” as well.  Heavy manipulation was at play with the Anaconda Stock and you can see that Gann was forecasting and trading Anaconda regardless of this.  The study of past charts, and chart patterns is a very good way for you to improve your future.  See the chart package here.

June 21, 2011

Knowing when the market traditionally (statistically) makes a High or Low can assist with your analysis and you maybe be able to put another tick into the box and trade with a bit more confidence

The statistics below show that the SPI (historically) makes a High in May (asit did this year) then trades down the Lows in June (time will tell) and then maybe .. a bounce up into a July intermediate High and down into an October low.


This is ONLY a probability – but knowing the history may assist you with looking to the future

You can add to the historical analysis by identifying and keeping track of the market heartbeat (this is the same heartbeat that GATE identified in Nov 2010) and continues to work very well


Include Price and Time Ranges that are active in the market

Knowing the historical months for making Swing tops and bottoms and combining this with your knowledge of the current time and price ranges that are active in the market will assist you to trade with more confidence.

You can see the current time and price ranges for the short term swings (weekly) as well as the longer term swings (monthly)

An Ephemeris Review from Olga Morales at AstrologyforGannTraders.com.au

March 10, 2011

Our friend and fellow W.D. Gann researcher, Olga Morales, just received her copy of W.D. Gann’s Private Ephemeris.   Here is what she has to say:

A Dream Come True

“If only I had a copy of W.D. Gann’s Ephemeris” – those words I have spoken so many times and now after 6 years of intense study, my wish has been granted. The timing is perfect, as Nikki Jones mentions in the preface of the book, something told her it was time to release Gann’s private ephemeris.

W.D. Gann published his coded novel “The Tunnel Thru the Air” in 1927, now in 2011 some 84 years later and a complete Uranus revolution- we have access to his private notes and comments. If you look very carefully, you’ll even unearth why Gann also called his novel – Looking Back from 1940.

You will also discover some Biblical cycles and counts he was using to study the War cycles. There are numerous recorded dates of his Lottery wins, but many cluster in a specific period obviously in tune with a lucky astrological period.

Significant celestial phenomena is underlined and highlighted, often with specific comments. There is a clear indication of the planets Gann was tracking and also a very special calculation in the side panels for nearly all the months. His notes reveal his application of planetary midpoints, declinations, Heliocentric transits and the Lunar Nodes.

I was pleasantly surprised when I reached the final page of the book to find a pouch with some extra inserts uncovered in certain parts of the Gann’s private ephemeris: a projection for 1949, two passages from the Bible and some detailed instructions on using planetary cycles and aspects.

There are also many personal entries like when he bought his cars, when he was elected on the Chicago Board of Trade, when his family members were born or died, days he opened and closed certain contracts and even one day when he fell and hurt himself.

I want to sincerely thank Nikki Jones for releasing Gann’s private Ephemeris so that serious Gann students can follow the steps of his Esoteric Mastery and find links to those puzzles we’ve had to speculate upon in the past.  It is also time for those in denial to accept that W.D. Gann was a Master Astrologer and open their minds to another dimension in cycle analysis. Uranus is the planet of awakening and astrology soon to ingress into Aries, starting the seeding time again in the Spring phase of its cycle.

Such an apt biblical passage found inside the book.

“Be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind”. Rom 12:2

Ephemeris News

Shipping in a few Weeks!

W.D. Gann used the Raphael Planetary Ephemeris as his personal Diary.  In these ephemerides he kept his notations on commodities and stocks and the expectation of their movements.  He also kept business and personal notes in these books.

Some Interesting entries show that he won many lotteries.  There are complete sets of books, charts and records he kept on the Havana Lottery.  On the left hand page of the ephemeris copied in this issue, you can see the notations such as “won 21, won on 71 and 07″.

In his ephemeris for the years 1940-1950 are some interesting notations such as his “war day” records.  On each page after World War II started he kept a record of war days.  In April of 1945 he had the notation “end of war coming”.

As everyone knows Germany surrendered in May and Japan in August, 1945.

Please note the May Soybean chart of Gann’s in this issue.  You will notice the signs for the planets Jupiter and Mars.  (I have circled them on the chart.) Jupiter’s sign looks like a fancy 4 and Mars’ sign is a circle withe an arrow on top.  You can see that there are lines extending from the signs and these lines cross on December 1, 1948.

Also reproduced in this issue are pages from Gann’s Ephemeris for December 1948.  On the right hand page you can see that Gann had the degrees for Jupiter and Mars circled on December 1, 1948.  In the upper right hand corner under Mutual Aspects it shows that on December 1st, Jupiter and Mars are conjunct.

May Soybeans made their final high at this point and then began a long down trend.

Gann knew what was going to happen to the market.  The records show him to be short soybeans through December 1948 and January 1949.

Gann did not advertise the fact that he used astrology.  During his time, just as it is today, the majority of people in the world had a hard time relation to this planetary science.  It goes back to a basic fear of the unknown..

Reprinted from “The W.D.Gann Technical Review” available here.

Purchase W.D. Gann’s Private Ephemeris 1940-1950 here. Only 400 copies will ever be made.

The Grand Prize winner of the Course hand-signed by W.D. Gann is Tsvetan Kashinski!

Recently we randomly selected three names out of the thousands who entered to win the very rare signed course by W.D. Gann.  Here’s more about the lucky winners.


Tsvetan Kashinski is a 22 year old student living in Bulgaria.  He is studying Computer Science and Networking.  He has been studying financial markets and trading for two years.

Tsvetan came across W.D.Gann in his search for forecasting and trading tools and found similarities in Gann’s methodologies and practices.  Tsvetan says the Bulgarian agriculture consists of wheat and corn near his city.  He plans to begin studying the futures market in closer detail.  He also is very interested in the wellbeing of his spiritual, physical, and mental faculties, much like W.D. Gann.

The course that Tsvetan won was an original “Forecasting Grain by Time Cycles” that was written December 4, 1946.  Here’s an interesting quote from Tsvetan upon receiving the course:

Hi Cody, I want to tell you something amazing. My mother is born on December 4. I’m so happy I was chosen for the commodity market course -really really happy-  in Bulgaria there is good weather for grains.  The country’s economy is not the best at the moment but hope for the future is good.  Anyways, I started to study the futures market and this is my dream. I really think it’s kind of a coincidence-best coincidence in the world.”

We will keep in touch with Tsvetan and let you know his progress.

Other winners in our giveaway:

Lee Stein won a free year of GATE Software


Laura Nieman won a free year of Market Analyst
