Forex Trading Using Fibonacci Technique

Aug 22, 2008
Fibonacci was the nickname of the person whose real name was Leonardo Pisano and he developed the now famous Fibonacci sequence of numbers. He was born in Pisa in the 12th century. He observed the Great Pyramid of Gizeh in Egypt and created this sequence of numbers. He was a genius mathematician who came up with this sequence.

The sequence tells you that the third number is effectively the sum of previous two numbers.

The sequence is something like this

1, 1, 2, 3, 5, 8, 13, 21, 34, 55, 89, 144 and so on.

Now the real value of this sequence lies in the fact the ratio or the proportion of adjacent terms is 1.618 or the inverse is .618. This ratio is known as the golden ratio or the divine ratio. This divine ratio is really divine in terms of giving out a suitable analysis to a given issue and has been applied in many situation including stock and forex markets.

Fibonacci ratios describe the relation between trend and countertrend markets. That mans that 38%, 50 % and 62% are main numbers that form the primary pullback numbers. The way to apply them is to apply these percentages to a particular trend in each direction and then try to predict how the countertrend will act.

The hard part of the Fibonacci sequence is to check out where to trade and use the Fibonacci sequence. If you try to use this on an absolute bottom low or high you will get good results but if you apply the grids on Elliot wave start formation which is the double bottom or double top then you will be get correct results and you will begin to realize the genius of Fibonacci. A lot of expert traders use this to get a handle on the inefficiencies in the market and make profit from them.

There are softwares available in the markets which help you hone you Fibonacci trading skills. Make sure to learn all the technical stuff before you trade. Also merely learning the technical stuff will not be of help if you are trying to make money using the currency trading. You need to understand several other factors for the same like the economic indicators namely the leading and the lagging indicators.

Make the bets of this sequence to locate opportunities in the forex market and help get the best of the other traders.
