Here you can practice all of the Fibonacci trading techniques detailed in this article on over 11, stocks and top 20 futures contracts for the last 2. Instead, they serve as alert zones for a potential reversal. 

I do not care how good you are, at some point the market will bite you. It even tested the

The Sequence and Ratios 

Fibonacci Numbers are the numbers found in an integer sequence discovered/created by mathematician, Leonardo Fibonacci. The sequence is a series of numbers characterized by the fact that every number is the sum of the two numbers preceding it.

To this point, have a max stop loss figure in mind. Since I trade lower volatility stocks, this may occur only once or twice a year. The point is you need to be prepared for the inevitable. I'm going to give you a few things you can do to up the chances of things working out. You want to find a stock clearing this extension level with volume. Clearing Fibonacci Extension Levels It's not enough to just buy the breakout.

Therefore, you want to make sure as the stock is approaching the breakout level, it has not retraced more than This will increase the odds the stock is set to go higher. Where Can Things Go Wrong In terms of where things can go wrong, it's the same as we mentioned for pullback trades. The one difference is you are exposed to more risk because the stock could have a deeper retracement, since you are buying at the peak or selling at the low.

So, to mitigate this risk, you will need to use the same mitigation tactics as mentioned for pullback trades. Just be careful you do not end up with a spaghetti chart. Here we will try to match the moments when the price interacts with important Fibonacci levels in conjunction with MACD crosses to identify an entry point.

We hold the stock until we receive a crossover from the MACD in the opposite direction. The two green circles on the chart highlight the moments when the price bounces from the At the same time, the green circles on the MACD show a cross up of the indicator. Thus, we go long every time we match a price bounce with a bullish MACD crossover. The red circles show the close signals we receive from the MACD. When we get these two signals, we will open positions. When the alligator lines overlap, the alligator falls asleep and we exit our position.

The price drops to the Meanwhile, the stochastic gives an oversold signal as shown in the other green circle. This is exactly what we need when the price hits A few hours later, the price starts moving in our favor. At the same time, the alligator begins eating! We hold our position until the alligator stops eating. This happens in the red circle on the chart and we exit our long position.

Fibonacci and Volume I saved this one for last because it's my favorite go to with Fibonacci. Volume is honestly the one technical indicator even fundamentalist are aware of. Fibonacci and Volume I mention this a little later in the article when it comes to trading during lunch, but this method works really during any time of the day. As a trader when you see price coming into a Fibonacci support area the biggest clue you can look to is volume to see if that support will hold.

Notice how in the above chart the stock had a number of spikes higher in volume on the move up, but the pullback to support at the This does not mean people are not interested in the stock, it means that there are fewer sellers pushing the price lower.

This is where longs come in and accumulate shares in anticipation for the rally higher. To install arcs on your chart you measure the bottom and the top of the trend with the arcs tool.

The arcs appear as half circles under your trend, which are the levels of the arcs distance from the top of the trend with Each of the Fibonacci arcs is a psychological level where the price might find support or resistance.

This is the minute chart of Apple for the period Oct 26 through Nov 3, I have placed Fibonacci arcs on a bullish trend of Apple. The arc we are interested in is portrays As you see, when the price starts a reversal, it goes all the way to the This is the moment where we should go long.

Lastly, I recommend placing a stop right below the bottom created on the arc. Fibonacci Time Zones Fibonacci time zones are based on the length of time a move should take to complete, before a change in trend. You need to pick a recent swing low or high as your starting point and the indicator will plot out the additional points based on the Fibonacci series.

During the first month, the newly born pair of rabbits are yet to reach sexual maturity and, therefore, cannot mate. In the second month, the rabbit mate and give birth to one pair of rabbits at the end of the same month, making it two pairs of rabbits in total. On the third month, the original female rabbit mates and gives birth to a second pair, making it a total of three pairs in the field.

At the end of the fourth month, the original female produces another pair of rabbits, and the female born in the second month also produces the first pair, making it five pairs of rabbits. The pattern continues until the 12th month. In the nth month, the total number of rabbits will be equal to the number of new pairs n-1 plus the number of pairs alive in the previous month n Fibonacci Retracement The Fibonacci retracement is a popular tool used by technical traders and is based on the numbers identified by the Italian mathematician.

The tool utilizes the mathematical relationships between the numbers in Fibonacci sequences more than the numbers themselves. It takes the extreme points on a stock chart , such as the low and high price levels of a long-term trend, and divides the vertical distance between them by the Fibonacci ratios of Once the ratio levels are identified, horizontal lines representing the ratio levels are drawn on a chart, indicating possible support price stops going lower and resistance price stops going higher levels.

In the Fibonacci sequence of numbers, each number is approximately 1. It is at this point that traders should employ other aspects of technical analysis to identify or confirm a reversal.

These may include candlesticks, price patterns, momentum oscillators or moving averages. From the Fibonacci section above, it is clear that Instead, this number stems from Dow Theory's assertion that the Averages often retrace half their prior move. Based on depth, we can consider a Such retracements would be appropriate for flags or short pullbacks. Retracements in the Even though deeper, the It is, after all, based on the Golden Ratio.

Shallow retracements occur, but catching these requires a closer watch and quicker trigger finger. The examples below use daily charts covering months. Focus will be on moderate retracements In addition, these examples will show how to combine retracements with other indicators to confirm a reversal. This decline also formed a falling wedge, which is typical for corrective moves. The combination raised the reversal alert. Chaikin Money Flow turned positive as the stock surged in late June, but this first reversal attempt failed.

Yes, there will be failures. The second reversal in mid-July was successful. After declining in September-October, the stock bounced back to around 28 in November. The combination served as an alert for a potential reversal.



From the Fibonacci section above, it is clear that %, % and % stem from ratios found within the Fibonacci sequence. The 50% retracement is not based on a Fibonacci number. Instead, this number stems from Dow Theory's assertion that the Averages often retrace half their prior move.

As you can see from the chart, the Fibonacci retracement levels were (%), (%), (%), (%), and (%). A Fibonacci retracement is a popular tool among technical traders and is based on the key numbers identified by mathematician Leonardo Fibonacci in the 13th century. Fibonacci's sequence of.

The EUR/USDcontinued with building a bearish retracement as part of a potential wave 4 (purple). Price has slightly broken below % Fibonacci level of wave 4 vs 3, which could still act as a. Fibonacci retracement is created by taking two extreme points on a chart and dividing the vertical distance by the key Fibonacci ratios. % is considered to be the start of the retracement, while % is a complete reversal to the original part of the move.

Every number in the Fibonacci sequence is % of the number after the next two numbers in the sequence. The deeper the retracement on a pullback, the less likely the stock will breakout to new highs. Fibonacci Retracement. Fibonacci Retracement is built as follows: first, a trendline is built between two extreme points, for example, from the trough to the opposing peak. Then, nine horizontal lines intersecting the trend line at Fibonacci levels of , , , 50, , , , , and percent are drawn.
