The Fibonacci indicator is one of the most popular technical analysis indicators used by traders and investors to identify support and resistance levels in the price of a security. Known as the “Golden Ratio,” this tool can be found in any trading platform, including HF Markets. It is an easy-to-use and powerful indicator that can help investors make more informed decisions about buying and selling securities.
The Fibonacci indicator is based on the mathematical sequence developed by Leonardo Fibonacci in 1202 AD. It consists of a series of numbers where each is the sum of the two preceding numbers (1, 1, 2, 3, 5, 8, 13, etc.). This sequence creates a ratio known as the Golden Ratio or phi (?), used for centuries to create art, design, and architecture due to its aesthetic appeal.
Traders use the Fibonacci indicator in financial markets to plot support and resistance levels. Identifying these levels helps traders anticipate potential areas of buy or sell orders that may lead to significant moves in price.
