**DIFFERENCE BETWEEN CRYPTOCURRENCY AND ASSET**

This is known as the 'Fibonacci golden ratio'. For Fibonacci followers, there are plenty of examples in nature adhering to this ratio or the inverse of the number, 0. It seems to have played an enormous part in the building blocks of everything around us. For sunflowers, each new seed is 0. Fibonacci also applies to humans as well. There are lots of instances of this golden ratio working in relation to our bodies: one example is the ratio of the length of your forearm to your hand, which is 1.

When traders use the golden ratio in their technical analysis, the ratio is usually translated into three percentages: Having said that, traders can use more multiples when necessary, such as: The For example, 21 divided by 55 equals 0. For example, 8 divided by 34 equals 0. Fibonacci retracement levels The argument of Fibonacci followers is: if so much of nature and the world is made up of these Fibonacci ratios, surely the same would apply to the markets too? Analysts can use this approach when learning to trade Fibonacci through its retracements.

Let's say for example that a market has risen and, similar to all markets, it doesn't move in a straight line and starts to fall back. Traders will look at Fibonacci ratios to try and figure out where the fall may stop and the market will resume its previous rise. Fibonacci retracement levels often mark retracement reversal points with surprising accuracy.

The tool can be used across many different asset classes, such as foreign exchange, shares, commodities and indices. Join a trading community committed to your success Start with a demo What is the Fibonacci sequence? The golden ratio of 1. These are then applied to the chart to try and figure out potential hidden levels of support or resistance in the market. When the market drops back to If this For most Fibonacci followers, if it breaks through that We can create Fibonacci retracements by taking a peak and trough or two extreme points on a chart and dividing the vertical distance by the above key Fibonacci ratios.

What is the Fibonacci sequence used for? The Fibonacci sequence and golden ratio appear frequently in nature, biology, architecture and fine art. It is seen in flower petals, tree branches, human DNA and population growth. How to use Fibonacci retracements in trading Fibonacci retracement lines can be created when you divide the vertical distance between the high and low points by the key Fibonacci ratios.

Some traders also like to use the This is not really a Fibonacci ratio, but it can be useful. Charting software has simplified the process of drawing Fibonacci lines. In an upward trend, you can select the Fibonacci line tool, select the low price and drag the cursor up to the high price. The indicator will mark key ratios such as Similarly, in a downward trend, you can select the Fibonacci line tool, choose the high price and drag the cursor down to the low price.

The indicator will mark key ratios on the chart. To improve accuracy, traders can also use double tops or double bottoms as the high and low points. Fibonacci support and resistance Fibonacci levels are mainly used to identify support and resistance levels. When a security is trending up or down, it usually pulls back slightly before continuing the trend. Often, it will retrace to a key Fibonacci retracement level such as These levels provide signals for traders to enter new positions in the direction of the original trend.

Typically, I place stops just below the If your minimum target of reaching the beginning of the retracement, i. The above examples are for long trades. They work the same in reverse with short trades. In those cases, the Simplify your Fib retracement lines to Bounces off To recap, the Fibonacci Golden ratio is If you square root that percentage, and square root it again, you get 0.

I often use a bounce off the The price bounced off that level to the exact pip. So instead I waited for a pull back or a consolidation such as a triangle to plan the trade from. The risk with waiting is missing the trade entirely as the price could just rocket down and not consolidate at all. I used a 25 pip stop that was just above the triangle. And the triangle pattern is marked with the red lines.

This means you take the size of Wave 1, i. That gave me a target of about 80 pips away from my entry. When it hit the target, it broke it by pips before rebounding and going through it firmly. See the following chart. In Summary: 1. In Forex, the pips made only makes sense when you compare it to the pips you risked! The Fibonacci is normally used by taking two extreme points the high and low and measuring the key Fibonacci ratios in between. An example of the three common levels and how to use them are below.

In these examples all 3 diagrams are in an uptrend. They all retrace lower to a Fibonacci level before again moving higher with the trend. The number 1 on the above diagrams is the first move higher. This is followed by number 2 which is the market retracing lower to the key Fibonacci level.

It is here at these key levels where Price Action traders would be looking for solid Price Action and hints from the market to get along with the uptrend. Number 3 represents the market respecting the key Fibonacci levels and moving back higher. The chart below shows how this pattern works in the Forex market. Price has been moving higher. The market respects this key Fibonacci levels and again moves higher completing the pattern. The Fibonacci pattern can be used the exact same way when traders are looking to short the market.

The only change is traders are looking to get short and are looking for retraces back higher into key Fibonacci levels to get on board the down trend. An example of the Fibonacci tool being used in a downtrend is below. Notice price is stopped at the The Fibonacci tool can be a very successful tool when used correctly. To increase the chance of placing a wining trade, traders should look for Price Action at the key Fibonacci levels to confirm a trade.

As suggested with all new trading techniques, make sure you practice this technique with a demo account before ever considering going live. Using unconventional methods for setting stop loss levels can have a surprisingly uplifting effect on profitability, and when a method can be found that is both unconventional and reliable, a serious edge can be uncovered.

Placing stops with FIBS can be such a method. The point of a stop loss is to limit risk. Is this the correct attitude to take? The best trades often spend little time in negative territory. This is not always true, but if one looks at a large sample of historical trades produced by most types of strategies, especially breakout strategies, a positive correlation of approximately 0.

This means that many strategies, especially shorter-term breakout strategies, produce a higher positive expectancy if stops are placed more tightly than the other side of the candle or swing. There will be more losers, but the winners will be larger overall. How to tighten these stops? One approach is to look within a shorter time frame for obvious micro support or resistance levels.

This can work extremely well, however often such a level is not clearly identifiable, and it is not practical under seriously pressured entry conditions to spend much time looking for one. This is where FIBS can come in. Calculate the pips risk mentally from your entry to where you would traditionally place your stop and apply that number to a FIB calculator.

It is recommended to review your past trades and see how your results would have been different using type of stop loss strategy. There is an alternative approach that can be taken in placing stops with FIBS that is especially appropriate for longer-term strategies that utilize wider, larger stop losses. We can take it for granted that there is stop loss hunting especially during periods of low liquidity. These hunts can and will take the price to those areas one pip above or beyond the swing high, where the herd tends to place its stops.

Place your stop loss a few pips the other side of that level and you might find better protection from the hunters, at a small extra premium. If your trade is for a large target, it can be worth it. I trade the major Forex pairs, some Futures contracts, and I rely entirely on Technical Analysis to place my trades. I began trading the markets in the early s, at the age of sixteen. I had a few hundred British pounds saved up I grew up in England , with which I was able to open a small account with some help from my Dad.

I started my trading journey by buying UK equities that I had read about in the business sections of newspapers. The s were a bull market, so naturally, I made money. I was fortunate enough in my early twenties to have a friend that recommended a Technical Analysis course run by a British trader who emphasized raw chart analysis without indicators.

Having this first-principles approach to charts influences how I trade to this day. Subscribe Get DailyForex analysis to your email Sign Up We commit to never sharing or selling your personal information Did you like what you read? Let us know what you think!
