“Strong” (Green) = Strong Buy, high likelihood of bullish trend intact, look to get into a long position.
“Strong” (Red) = Strong Sell, high likelihood of bearish trend intact, look to get into a short position.
"Buy" = Possible trend reversal but not 100% confirmed until a Strong Buy. Take profit on short positions and wait for another strong signal to trigger. (Purple candles active)
"Sell" = Possible trend reversal but not confirmed until a Strong Sell. Take profit on long positions and wait for another strong signal to trigger. (Purple candles active)
Green candles = Strong buy active.
Red candles = Strong sell active.
Purple candles = Take profit, wait for the next signal to trigger, or exercise caution in your current position.
Gray Candles = Indecision or an early entry is presenting itself or the trend is changing.
Note: You do not have to follow this exact terminology, if you see a sell signal and based on your analysis believe it is a good opportunity to enter short, go right ahead. If you just made life-changing money through a strong buy signal, it's probably best you don't wait for a sell signal to take profit. It's important to understand this is overall a tool and you can use it however you find it best. Our signals are not meant to be taken blindly.
As a part of our 2.1 update, we added a toggle for our Equalizer Band which is an option for users to trade with extra confirmation, avoid false signals, and have a better understanding of the market whether trending or ranging. It can be turned on in the settings of Lux Algo V2.
Using The Equalizer Band
Taking inspiration from Ichimoku with our own calculations and smoothing, the Equalizer Band displays the presence of any market with more dynamic reversals and a precise representation of the market's equilibrium without displacement.
Rules & Techniques:
- If price holds above the band, market is considered bullish and strong buys (green candles) are able to activate.
- If price holds below the band, market is considered bearish and strong sells (red candles) are able to activate.
- If price holds inside the band, market is considered indecisive and gray candles activate. Depending on how price reacts to the band it could be either an early entry being presented or a trend shift in the market too.
- If equalizer band is becoming thin, it means either the recent trend is potentially coming to an end, the market is moving sideways, or it means there is a strong likelihood of upcoming volatility.
- If equalizer band is growing in width, it means the trend is becoming stronger (bullish or bearish)
- If equalizer band is actively twisting multiple times, market is considered ranging and violent moves can happen in either direction until price holds cleanly above / below the band or until it establishes support or resistance on it.
- If price extends very far away from the band and an opposing signal to the trend appears, depending on the exhaustion of the trend / divergences it could be smart to trade it with a target of price revisiting the band.
- In the rare case a signal activates while price is still within the band, you can take it but with caution considering it's still indecisive and candles are gray.
Sell signals called for a move back to the equalizer band which proved to be a buying opportunity when it held as support. Confirmation was given with Strong Buy signals and especially when price held cleanly above the band which led to a 30% move up.
A 40% price increase within 1-2 days led many people and indicators into getting bullish, however with our equalizer band and gray candles, it was nothing but a bearish retest.
Lux Volatility (LV) comes complementary with your subscription Lux Algo V2 and can also be found within your invite-only scripts.
Lux Volatility (LV)
This indicator measures the volatility levels of any given market from 0-100%. It's useful for spotting low volatility zones where it's likely smart to avoid trading and be aware that a big impulse move is likely in the near future.
Alongside our Lux Algo V2 signals, LV provides great confluence for when to fully trust an impulse move to occur as well as spotting extremes in the market where impulse moves are likely to end.
When volatility holds cleanly between the two zones 25% and 75% it is a good sign the trend has more room left to go and the move isn't finished just quite yet.
A great feature of Lux Volatility (LV) is that it has multi-timeframe capabilities.
For example, on the 4HR timeframe you could select the 1D volatility to appear rather than the current timeframe for a more macro picture of the market. In this scenario, this would have helped you avoid this extra choppy price range on the 4HR.
Volatility low = Market is in a sideways state and a bigger impulse move is likely beginning to form.
Volatility high = Current impulse move is likely beginning to get exhausted.
Volatility normal = The current move likely has more room to continue.
This isn't an oscillator to be used at all times, it's an additional tool which can help you avoid dangerous areas in the market where the best move is to either get out or consider switching to a different timeframe. Typically when volatility is very low on the higher timeframes, it's a good indication that the lower timeframes are going to perform better.
The Lux Dashboard is a toggle option within our Lux Algo V2 script which displays features from all of our Premium scripts in one place.
The live dashboard appears next to the current price and displays the current signal, volume, trend, volatility, and a suggested stop-loss that changes as the market moves. (Trailing Stop).
The ideal use case of the dashboard is to have easy access to important data which allows you to immediately look for confluence across different aspects of our trading system.
For measuring volatility the dashboard will display a warning sign "⚠️" when volatility is above 75% which means the move is likely getting exhausted. It will also display the "⚠️" sign when the volatility is under 25% which indicates the market is likely entering a choppy zone and a big move is likely to occur in the near future.
"Trend" which is based on Lux Oscillator at Length 50 can help you know when to be cautious of signals. A buy signal can occur while the trend is still overall bearish and vice versa and this is another way to help you make better decisions when considering our signals.
The "Suggested Stop" is the price our algorithm suggests to place a stop-loss order (invalidation of a trade). This price adjusts in real time as the market moves whereas it can be used as a trailing stop loss order which helps you lock in profits as the trade goes in your favor. Read more about it here.
The dashboard can be toggled on & off at anytime by viewing the input settings on the Lux Algo V2.4 script.
You should know from our Signal Terminology that it's best to look for entries after Strong Buy or Strong Sell signals while normal signals are for taking profit or getting "flat" while waiting for a new Strong signal to appear.
Taking positions blindly or without any risk management is strongly discouraged with our system. Below is a simple strategy for increasing your probability of entering profitable trades and avoiding false signals.
Since our signals are confirmed on the candle close, a strategy that can increase your probability of being on the right side of the trade is placing a limit buy above the high of a Strong buy signal.
As well as placing a limit sell below a Strong Sell signal as seen above ^
By following this systematic approach to entries, you can avoid bad entries, increase your probability of entering profitable trades, and overall trade with much more discipline. You can place these limit buy or sell orders on most exchanges / brokers across every global market.
Proper risk management plays a very important role for traders to be consistently profitable in the market. It's very important to take this seriously and apply it accordingly with or without our system.
Using a Stop Loss
A stop loss is your invalidation price of a trade. If price reaches a certain point, you would consider the trade invalid. We provide a "suggested stop" which can be found by enabling our Dashboard in the input settings.
This suggested stop adjusts in real-time as the market moves which makes it a "Trailing-Stop-Loss". This is very handy as it allows you to lock in profits as a trade goes in your favor.
By rule of thumb, you should only risk 1-3% of your account size maximum with each trade you take. By following this strictly, you increase your odds of being consistently profitable in the market.
Lux overall if used with proper risk management is a reliable, unique, and profitable strategy that you can implement as your very own trading system or just as an additional tool in your technical analysis.
Lux Algo V2 works on any market internationally including stocks, indicies, forex, crypto, futures and commodities on all timeframes including 5m, 30m, 1H, 4H, 1D, 1W, etc.
Ideally it should be used for trading on the 1H+ timeframe but you can find success in scalping on lower timeframes especially when adjusting the 'sensitivity' setting a little higher and toggling on the equalizer band in our input settings.
You don't need much experience to understand the signals provided by Lux.
However, trading can be difficult and can take time to learn regardless of our signals on your charts. If you're new to trading / technical analysis in general, we recommend paper-trading at first using our standard signals until you get more familiar with how it all works.
There is no magic bot that can immediately make you money on auto-pilot. Our signals can help you develop a directional bias on multiple timeframes and get you to take profit / wait out of trades which most other indicators can’t exactly communicate.
We have thousands of automated alerts scanning every market 24/7 within our Discord server so you don't have to setup many alerts.
If you wish to set up your own alerts on TradingView, click alerts on the right under your watchlist and make sure to use "Once per bar close".
When you set up an alert, click "Continue anyway" (Read more info below)
Our signals do NOT repaint, the reason this appears is due to the Lux Dashboard which is automatically removed from the previous candle & moved to the current candle which TradingView counts as repainting.
See the code below & watch our 24/7 live stream to see our non-repaint signals LIVE.
By adding the equalizer band and gray candles, you are increasing the amount of confirmation needed for Strong signals and reducing as much noise as possible. This can be a safer way to trade and a better way to identify real trends but at times it comes at the expense of getting a later entry.
The settings (1.15, & 27) have overall been proven to be the most accurate settings possible for Lux Algo V2 on most assets + timeframes.
For some markets and timeframes such as the 5minute chart, it is recommended to move the Sensitivity setting up higher to reduce extra noise. (1.5-2 is a good range).
The Line Length setting isn't usually recommended to be changed much but it can adjust per asset for identifying strong signals better and changing the size of the equalizer band itself.
We also include a wide variety of toggle options to add extra confluence using our signals such as our Lux Dashboard, Equalizer Band, Gray Candles for indecisive price action, Lux Oscillator + Volatility, and a set of rules to follow with all of these toggles which makes Lux a complete trading system.
Below are some examples of typical scripts you can find for spotting trends compared to Lux Algo V2. Even some of the most popular scripts tend to be delayed, overfitted, repainting, or simply unprofitable.

Typical trend based buy / sell signals
Compared to Lux Algo V2
Any decent algorithm can give similar signals because any accurate signal will be alike, however, most are less likely to give similar results in trading because without our strong signals & set rules, you’re more than likely to get overly bullish or bearish at the wrong times, get chopped up at indecisive points in the market, and take any inaccurate signals blindly.
It's also important to note that past performance is not necessarily indicative of future results with any trading product or strategy. You should know that regardless of how accurate our signals are, there is no magical bot or system that can guarantee your success. It's up to the trader / analyst to be successful.
A signal is confirmed only once the candle is closed. Meaning a signal could appear on your chart but is not confirmed until that candle is closed and the next candle has started.
Our automated Discord bots will never notify you on any signal until the candle has closed and confirmed it. If you're adding alerts for Lux signals in TradingView - make sure to select "Once per bar close".
To prevent overfitting we test our algorithm across a massive range of assets and timeframes to ensure maximum and optimal performance. We also allow the user to tune the algorithm to their desired settings to prevent this.
TradingView supports real-time data for the majority of tickers you can find on the platform. Only a small portion of them (mostly futures contracts) require a small monthly fee to access real time data.
To receive the updates we put out for our scripts in Lux Algo V2, first refresh your browser and remove them from your chart and add them back again.
If this doesn't work, try to remove every indicator from your chart, then save your chart layout, refresh your screen, then add Lux Algo V2 back to your chart. If you're on mobile you need to close out of the app completely after removing an older version from your chart.
You'll know you have the new Lux Algo V2 script by seeing (www.luxalgo.com 1.15) on your chart as pictured above. You can add our Lux Dashboard by hitting the settings cog wheel and toggling it on or off.
Email email@example.com or ask in #vip-support if all of this doesn't work and our team will ensure your scripts are updated.
No, the price you signed up for is the price you will keep forever as long as you stay signed up. We will never change the price of your subscription. All members are grandfathered in to the price they first signed up at regardless of any price increases we do in the future.
After signing up, please allow us around 8 hours to grant you access to Lux Algo V2 on TradingView. It's a manual process by our team. Although, typically during the day, (EST) full access is granted much quicker and you'll receive a confirmation email with further instructions.
