How to Build a Winning Trading Strategy Using the Nikola Tesla’s “Divine Code”
The number sequence of 3, 6, 9 is a pattern that has been studied and explored for centuries. According to Nikola Tesla, this sequence holds a special significance and represents a “divine code” of the universe. In this article, we’ll explore the special properties of the numbers 3, 6, 9, and try to apply that code to find winning trading setups in the stock market.
While there are countless articles and books on the application of Fibonacci numbers in trading, the effectiveness of this approach may decrease as it becomes more widely used. In this article, I will share the very encouraging results of my study, which aims to apply a unique sequence of numbers to technical analysis of stock price charts.
Nikola Tesla was a brilliant inventor and engineer who made groundbreaking contributions to the development of electrical power systems. He was also a deeply spiritual person who believed that the universe was governed by certain mathematical principles and that these principles could be understood and harnessed by humanity.
One of the most significant numbers for Tesla was 3. He believed that 3 represented growth, expansion, and evolution. According to Tesla, 3 was a sacred number that appeared in many natural phenomena, such as the three dimensions of physical space (length, width, and height), the three states of matter (solid, liquid, and gas), and the three primary colors (red, blue, and green).
In addition to 3, Tesla was also fascinated by the properties of 6 and 9. He believed that 6 represented the perfect balance between positive and negative, while 9 represented completion and fulfillment. According to Tesla, these three numbers were not just random occurrences, but rather were evidence of a deeper, underlying order in the universe that governed all of existence.
Tesla believed that the number sequence of 3, 6, 9 held a special significance and could be found throughout the universe in the dimensions of physical objects and in cosmic events. He thought that these numbers were fundamental to the universe and held the key to unlocking many of its mysteries.
One of the reasons why Tesla was so fascinated by the sequence of 3, 6, 9 was the unique mathematical properties of these numbers. For example, when you add any three numbers in the sequence together (3 + 6 + 9), you get 18. If you calculate a digital root of 18 you will get 1 + 8 = 9.
The digital root of a natural number is the value obtained by an iterative process of summing digits, on each iteration using the result from the previous iteration to compute a digit sum.
This pattern of reducing to 9 continues for any multiple of 3, such as 27 (2 + 7 = 9), 36 (3 + 6 = 9), and 45 (4 + 5 = 9).
Tesla believed that this property of 9 made it a significant number in the universe and that it represented a completeness of cycles. He thought that everything in the universe followed cycles, and that when a cycle reached its completion, it would return to the beginning of the cycle to start anew.
According to Tesla, 9 was the number that represented the end of one cycle and the beginning of another.
From school years you may remember that there are 360 degrees in a full circle. The digital root of 360 is 3+6+0 = 9.
Half circle is 180 degrees. The digital root of 180 is 1+8+0 = 9.
Quater circle is 90 degrees. The digital root of 90 is also 9.
1/8th of a circle is 45 degrees. The digital root of 45 is 9 again!
We can keep dividing each smaller cslice of a circle by two and we will get the following sequence of numbers:
22.5, 11.25, 5.625, 2.8125, 1.40625.
Surprisingly all those numbers have a digital root equals to 9:
22.5 = 2 + 2 + 5 = 9.
11.25 = 1 + 1 + 2 + 5 = 9.
5.625 = 5 + 6 + 2 + 5 = 11 + 2 + 5 = 1 + 1 + 2 + 5 = 9
2.8125 = 10 + 1 + 2 + 5 = 1 + 1 + 2 + 5 = 9.
1.40625 = 1 + 4 + 0 + 6 + 2 + 5 = 5+ 6 + 2 + 5 = 11 + 7 = 1 + 1 + 7 = 9!
Let’s review more examples showing significance of the number 9.
The sum of the three angles of any triangle is equal to 180 degrees.
The digital root of 180 is 1 + 8 = 9.
The sum of all interior angles of a rectangle is 360 degrees.
The digital root of 360 is 3 + 6 + 0= 9.
The sum of all interior angles of a pentagon is 540 degrees.
The digital root of 540 is 5 + 4 + 0= 9.
The sum of all interior angles of a hexagon is 720 degrees.
The digital root of 720 is 7+ 2+ 0= 9.
There is a rule saying that all the multiples of 9 have digital roots equal to 9:
1 * 9 = 9,
2 * 9 = 18 (digital root = 1 + 8 = 9),
3 * 9 = 27 (digital root = 2 + 7 = 9),
4 * 9 = 36 (digital root = 3+ 6 = 9),
5 * 9 = 45 (digital root = 4 + 5 = 9),
6 * 9 = 54 (digital root = 5 + 4 = 9),
7 * 9 = 63 (digital root = 6 + 3 = 9),
8 * 9 = 72 (digital root = 7 + 2 = 9),
9 * 9 = 81 (digital root = 8 + 1 = 9).
Therefore, we can outline the following Tesla’s sequence of numbers that we will try to use in technical analysis of stock charts:
9, 18, 27, 36, 45, 54, 63, 72, 81, 90, 99, 108, 117, 126, 135, 144, 153, 162, 171, 180…
Potential applications of the Tesla’s sequence in technical analysis.
The most obvious way of using the Tesla’s sequence of numbers is to count bars off major tops and bottoms to predict future pivots.
However, that would be too simple to become a secret code of the stock market.
I used a little bit more complicated approach. I would only count bars that close over a close 3, 6 or 9 bars ago and would skip so called “inside” bars that did not make any progress on the way up or down. Instead of counting bars you should count 3, 6 or 9 sequences of bars that made progress up or down. Based on that principle I coded a TradingView indicator that I called the Tesla 3–6–9 Secret code:
Let’s apply that indicator to QQQ chart at 36 min timeframe:
You can use different numbers from the Tesla’s sequence to code more trading signals:
Remember that Tesla believed that the number 9 represented completion and fulfillment. This is why numbers from the Tesla’s sequence are capable of catching points of exhaustion in stock price moves:
Interestingly, combinations of three consecutive signals produce the most reliable trading setups:
Let’s apply the indicator to a 63 min chart of S&P 500:
This is how the indicator works with Heikin Ashi candles on TSLA 45 min chart:
I really like how it works on intraday 3 min charts:
Here I applied it to a 90 min chart of S&P 500:
I hope I have inspired you to conduct your own research on the numbers from Tesla’s sequence and their potential applications in technical analysis of stock charts.
I will offer that indicator through a subscription service priced at $36 per month or $90 per quarter. For a limited time you can subscribe for an annual subscription for only $149.99.
