    Difficult to answer this question precisely, since 'luck' cannot be measured. It would seem, subjectively, that bad and good luck happen.
    For example there is a saying that 'when sorrows come, they come not single spies, but in battalions.' (Shakespeare). One thing goes wrong everything seems to go wrong. But is that really true?
    There is a theory that everything is connected, so if one b\ad thing happens will many bad things happen?
    Not really. Perhaps we see what we want to see.
    Perhaps when one bad thing happens, we're so upset and annoyed that we can't see all the good things happening around us.
    What do we mean by luck? Something different and extraordinary happening? Do we see it as 'in the cards'?
    Isn't that just us doing some wishful; thinking?
    I've had fortunate things happen me a short while after thinking about it. Did I wish the good luck into my environment or did my brain send out some subtle signal that drew the item to me, like The Law of Attraction?
    Maybe these 'luck' things can be worked out mathematically?
    Maybe we should spend our time trying to do that?
    It would be good exercise for our brain, anyway!

    Personally I do not believe in "luck" good or bad. I do accept "circumstances" and "time & place" as alternatives.

    That all depends on what you think of it. Do you believe in fate? Destiny? Chance? Pre-Destiny? If you do, then I don 't see why bad luck, and good luck not be in the category of the believing.

    When talk about good or bad luck, it is actually referring to Karma & Merits.

    When a person does good deed in his life, it will come a time when he is rewarded with good luck. Good luck also comes in as an opportunity. If you do not grab it, then it will not happen and good luck goes away.

    As for bad luck is happening when you have not been good. If you are always swearing and cursing of being unfairly treat or life is bad so you do bad things, then you will encounter bad luck.

    It is always the cycle of life between good and bad. Whatever your action, it will result with the consequence.

    So, my advice will be try to do as many good things in life whenever possible and soon you will see the fruits.

    I think these are terms used to define certain conditions that occur in a persons life.  If the situation is good then I guess people refer to it as good luck (e.g. I win the lottery) on the other hand if I lost my job due to the current economic climate then that can be considered as bad luck.

    Bad and good luck therefore is dependent on the result of a particular event or situation.

    There has to be so much but it could also be circumstance=luck. If you had done one thing any differently would the timing have made a difference? So in that sense I would have to say yes.

    "Good" and "bad," as labels, are self-imposed. We may label something "bad" luck, but it may ultimately be good for us.

    Luck is something we create for ourselves. It's our karma. When we take full responsibility for our karma and are grateful for it, then we are free of its consequences. We no longer need to create those challenges for ourselves.

    In the final analysis, all karma is good. Each such event is an opportunity for us to awaken spiritually.

    No everything happens by chance, read this scripture for it holds are true: To every thing there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven:

    3:2 A time to be born, and a time to die; a time to plant, and a time to pluck up that which is planted;

    3:3 A time to kill, and a time to heal; a time to break down, and a time to build up;

    3:4 A time to weep, and a time to laugh; a time to mourn, and a time to dance;

    3:5 A time to cast away stones, and a time to gather stones together; a time to embrace, and a time to refrain from embracing;

    3:6 A time to get, and a time to lose; a time to keep, and a time to cast away;

    3:7 A time to rend, and a time to sew; a time to keep silence, and a time to speak;

    3:8 A time to love, and a time to hate; a time of war, and a time of peace.
    These words were spoken by King Solomon in the scriptures and they are very comforting when I find myself wondering about ups and downs!
