Indicator Description

You may define the numerical values from the Current Month Fibonacci indicator individually. In the event that you’d like to eliminate certain levels, simply set the value for these lines to zero. To add more retracement or expansion levels, you may add several instances of the fibonacci indicator to your chart.

Generally, Fibonacci retracements refer to areas of support or resistance levels calculated by using the Fibonacci sequence. The main concept here is what’s called the Golden Ratio, which refers to 1.618 and it’s inverse .618. Leonardo Fibonacci (1170-1250), an Italian mathematician, is credited for introducing the sequence to the West.

The Current Month Fibonacci indicator can be used to identify potential reversal and extension scenarios. Following a strong uptrend, the levels are used to predict the extent of a pullback. You may do the same during downtrends, i.e. evaluating how far a counter-trend bounce may retrace. The current month Fibonacci levels are found by measuring the distance between the day high / low and dividing the vertical distance by the key Fibonacci ratios. The most commonly used Fibs from the Current Month are 38.2% and 61.8%. Although the 50% retracement is not part of the Fibonacci sequence, it is almost always included as a point of reference (half the range).
