The key Fibonacci retracement levels to keep an eye on are the 23.6%, 38.2%, 50.0%, 61.8%, and 76.4%. The ones that seem to hold the most weight are the 38.2%, 50.0%, and 61.8% levels. These are normally included in the default settings of any Fibonacci retracement software.
If your trading software doesn't have a Fib tool, no worries - we've got a Fibonacci calculator that will do all the work for you!
Traders use the Fibonacci retracement levels as potential support and resistance. Since plenty of traders watch these same levels and place buy and sell orders on them to enter trades or place stops, the support and resistance levels may become a self-fulfilling prophecy.
They key Fibonacci extension levels are the 38.2%, 50.0%, 61.8%, 100%, 138.2% and 161.8%.
Traders use the Fibonacci extension levels as potential support and resistance areas to set profit targets. Again, since so many traders are watching these levels and placing buy and sell orders to take profits, this tool tends to work due self-fulfilling expectations.
In order to apply Fibonacci levels to your charts, you'll need to identify Swing High and Swing Low points.
A Swing High is a candlestick with at least two lower highs on both the left and right of itself.
A Swing Low is a candlestick with at least two higher lows on both the left and right of itself.
Because many traders use the Fibonacci tool, those levels tend to become self-fulfilling support and resistance levels or areas of interest.
When using the Fibonacci tool, probability of success could increase when using the Fib tool with other support and resistance levels, trend lines, and candlestick patterns for spotting entry and stop loss points.
