The French Mathematician who identified a second series of number beginning with 2 and 1 in that order which are added to arrive at the next number in the series 3 See Table on chart The math that proves the relationship of both series can be shown below. Dividing a Lucas number by the next number in series will get you closer to 0. Take a Fibonacci number and double it, now add it to it's neighbouring Lucas number and see what you get.
See table on chart eg. What do you notice about the two Fibonacci numbers either side of the neighbouring Lucas number See table on chart eg. This study is also configured for use in a Watch List window for custom sorting. To discuss this study or download a complete copy of the formula code, please visit the Efs Library Discussion Board forum under the Forums link from the support menu at www. The eSignal formula scripts Efs are also shown below.
Wealth-Lab users can give these two time-based techniques a try and turn their screens into drawing boards. This additional library is required for the strategy to function. Here is a Wealth-Lab Developer 6. The Fibonacci bars are blue and the Lucas series are red.
A ready-to-use, all-in-one formula for the article is presented here. The starting point of a time series can be selected either by a mouse click on a chart or via the parameters window, which can also be used to define colors and determine which series should be plotted, Lucas or Fibonacci. Here is a NeuroShell Trader chart showing the Fibonacci and Lucas series time target indicators after a swing high.
In my code set, shown below, I provide inputs that allow for some of the adjustments. The three black crows pattern has the following rules:. An uptrend is defined as a linear regression slope of the closes greater than zero. In addition, the author suggests testing in a bull market. A bear market occurs whenever it is not a bull market. I tested the pattern by entering at the close on the day the pattern is complete and exiting at the close six days later. This provides a test with five overnights and five full bars held after the pattern completes.
In the table in Figure 8, I show the comparative results of bull, bear, and combined bull and bear. It appears that this pattern works in both bull and bear markets, but there may not be enough signals to build a trading system from just this pattern alone. The Aiq code is shown here and the Eds file for this technique can be downloaded from www.
I started the time series at the am bar, which was a low pivot. The white bars are the Fibonacci time series and the yellow bars are the Lucas time series, with both series starting at the am low pivot. The terminal window shows the bars since the starting point. Here is a color study for the ES five-minute chart with white bars for the Fibonacci series and yellow bars for the Lucas series.
The TradersStudio code for the Fibonacci and Lucas indicators can be downloaded from the TradersStudio website at www. It is also shown here. Here is a forex chart with a Lucas series plotted on the point where a trend reversal takes place. This indicator is available for download at www. This indicator is for NinjaTrader version 7 or greater. The Fibonacci Time Zone drawing tool in Trade Navigator Gold allows you to add these indicators to a chart with just two clicks.
You can display this drawing tool as either lines or arcs Figure The drawing tool can display the indicator as either lines or arcs. If you have the Greenblatt library in your version of Trade Navigator, the drawing tool will be called the Greenblatt Time Zone.
In his article, Coles develops a chart overlay based on the Fibonacci and Lucas number series. Users can select a point to initialize the program, and the indicator will highlight data points from this based on the two series.
This Updata code will be in the Updata Library and may be downloaded by clicking the Custom menu and then either library. Those who cannot access the library due to a firewall may paste the code shown below into the Updata Custom editor and save it. In this article, he makes use of intervals based on the Fibonacci and Lucas time series.
I do not have ready access to intraday data, so this Excel implementation uses end-of-day data. But as Coles notes in his article, the only real difference between intraday, daily, weekly, or longer time frames is how one goes about specifying the starting bar for a given Lucas or Fibonacci study. In an Excel workbook, I have provided the ability to select and plot up to three Fibonacci and three Lucas number studies at the same time.
The spikes have been dynamically scaled to a different height for each series to assist in visual discrimination between series of similar color. If you have access to historical intraday data, the Notes tab outlines the simple cell format changes you would need to make in order to use this workbook with intraday data. To take advantage of this feature, you will need to enable Vba macro content when prompted.
No type of trading or investment recommendation, advice, or strategy is being made, given, or in any manner provided by TradeStation Securities or its affiliates. A subsidiary of TradeStation Group, Inc. The five-minute chart in Figure 2 shows a three-day trading period of year Treasury note futures TY.
This five-minute chart shows the active futures continuous contract for year Treasury notes over a three-day period in April Significant high and low swing points are used as starting points for the Fibonacci sequence of numbers. The counts following these swings often reveal other significant bars later in the chart. The Bloomberg Custom Study platform includes functionality that allows the user to click on the chart to establish the starting bar for the study, rather than needing to manually input the date and time.
However, this causes the study to initially display a count from the first bar on the chart. A right-click on the indicator will pop up a properties dialogue box as shown in Figure 2. In addition, we have chosen to use Paint Bars to denote these beginning bars.
The red, green, and purple arrows point to these beginning bars. In overlaying the three Fibonacci sequences beginning at important swing highs and lows, we can indeed see the significant occurrences mentioned by Coles. Other noteworthy swing bars are also shown coinciding within one bar of the Fibonacci counts, as indicated by the corresponding circles on the needle projections.
Using the CS. The C code for this indicator is shown here. It can be applied to any size or aggregation in the platform once or multiple times, each of which can be set to show either Lucas or Fibonacci sequences.
A sample chart implementation is shown in Figure 3. The study contains formula parameters to set the series type Fibonacci or Lucas , color, and start date for the series calculation, which may be configured through the Edit Chart window.
This study is also configured for use in a Watch List window for custom sorting.

What do you notice about the two Fibonacci numbers either side of the neighbouring Lucas number See table on chart eg. Multiply a Lucas number by it's Fibonacci Neighbour in the Table on the chart eg. Now locate the 3rd Fib number on either side of Fib5 ie.
I'll let you figure this one out. Can you see these Double Lucas numbers on the chart?
