# Benner-Fibonacci Reversal Points [CC]

This is an original script based on a very old idea called the Benner Theory from the Civil War times. Benner discovered a pattern in pig iron prices (no clue what those are), and this turned out to be a parallel idea to indicators based on Fibonacci numbers. Because a year is 365 days (nearly 377, which is a Fibonacci number), made up of 52 weeks (nearly 55, which is another Fibonacci number), or 12 months (nearly 13, which is another Fibonacci number), Benner theorized that he could find both past and future turning points in the market by using a pattern he found. He discovered that peaks in prices seemed to follow a pattern of 8-9-10, meaning that after a recent peak, it would be 8 bars until the next peak, 9 bars until after that peak for the next, and 10 bars until the following peak. For past peaks, he would just need to reverse this pattern, and so the previous peak would be 10 bars before the most current peak, 9 bars before that peak, and 8 bars before the previous one, and these patterns seemed to repeat. For troughs, he found a pattern of 16,18,20 which follows the same logic, and this idea also seemed to work on long-term peaks and troughs as well.

This is my version of the Benner theory and the major difference between my version and his is that he would manually select a year or date and either work backwards or forwards from that point. I chose to go with an adaptive version that will automatically detect those points and plot those past and future points. I have included several options such as allowing the algorithm to be calculated in reverse which seems to work well for Crypto for some reason. I also have both short and long term options to only show one or both if you choose and of course the option to enable repainting or leave it disabled.

Big thanks to @HeWhoMustNotBeNamed and @RicardoSantos for helping me fix some bugs in my code and for @kerpiciwuasile for suggesting this idea in the first place.
