Fib Time Zones
The Fib Time zones are extremely beneficial when they align to the support areas you're attempting to seek out before placing a short position. If you insist on making back-to-back trades using the same reference point, you can short and long using the same turnaround.
Here, I decided to align the troughs with the Fib Time zone. This allows me to see how close my (orange verticals) comes to capturing the end of a cycle. There's a 3-hr span on this chart between them, which is not too bad.
are also a great discovery tool to pair with cycles. We are concerned more so with how the price moves away from the average and how likely it is to bounce fro the walls of the outer limits rather than ride along them for extended periods of time.
Using the , of course, we can see if these touched limits are at oversold points to verify a turn around. From here, it's real easy to see the direction it's going to go next. The last thing is timing. Direction + time + reference area completest the forecast.
Where the Fib line #5 intersects the the 1/1 of the trend, this can be a place that we project with confidence. All elements point us in this direction.
Lastly, When shorting, we want to put a stop limit on the second to last bar ( red). If you are using a greater amount of leverage to initiate the trade, use a more frequent bar display to get a finer-tuned look at where that fail safe is placed. Target is 9450. Obviously, this being BTC , it's simply serving as our example for comprehending the basics.
