APPLICATION

Fibonacci Retracements are an extremely popular in technical analysis. They are created by first drawing a trend line between two extreme points. The vertical distance between those two points is then divided up vertically with horizontal lines placed at key levels. Those levels are placed at the key Fibonacci Ratios of 23.6%, 38.2%, 61.8% and 100%.

It is important to note, that these are typical levels. By default, TradingView offers 11 levels which is much more than the 4 mentioned (though those specific 4 are included). The user has the ability to format the tool to show/hide levels as well as manually change level values and save those changes as templates.

The main use of these levels is that they act as levels of support and/or resistance when price is retracing back from an original advance or decline. These are key levels to take note of when price is correcting or experiencing a counter-trend bounce. The idea is that after an initial move (either a decline or an advance), price will often retrace back towards the direction it came from. The areas or levels defined by the retracement values can give the analyst a better idea about future price movements. Remember that as price moves, levels that were once considered to be resistance can switch to being support levels. The opposite is also true.
