4 tips to use Fibonacci Retracement Levels for trading

  1. Recognise that Fibonaccis are very powerful phenomenon used for trading; there are very strong market psychology involved at important fibonacci retracement levels
  2. Be acquainted with the best way to trade fibonacci retracement
  3. Practice discovering fib retracement levels by looking at major price patterns; repeating the drill of drawing from high to low, low to high
  4. Fib levels are meant to be observed. While they have stopping power, price levels may overshoot sometimes. So fishing by placing orders to be filled at key fib levels are a poor way to trade.
