The Series Count study finds time targets for implementation of Elliott Wave Theory. A bar is called time target if its ordinal number (from the specified date and time) is an element of the Fibonacci or Lucas series. Time targets are marked with their ordinal numbers.

Fibonacci series is a sequence where each subsequent number is the sum of the previous two, with the first two elements being equal to 0 and 1 correspondingly. Lucas series is defined similarly, but using numbers 2 and 1 as the first two elements.

Input Parameters

Parameter Description
begin date Defines the date from which the bars are counted, specified with the built-in date picker or in the YYYYMMDD format.
begin time Defines the time (EST timezone) of the specified day from which the bars are counted. The time is specified in the hhmm format (24-hour clock notation).
mode Defines whether Fibonacci or Lucas series is used for finding the time targets.
vertical lines Defines whether or not to mark the time targets with dotted vertical lines.


Plot Description
Series The numerical plot marking the time targets with their ordinal numbers.
