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 Fibonacci or Lucas series. Time targets are marked with their ordinal numbers.

Fibonacci series is a sequence where each subsequent number is a sum of the previous two, with 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

mode Defines whether Fibonacci or Lucas series is used for finding the time targets.
