### HOW TO TRADE WITH FIBONACCI RETRACEMENT

Your dependency on technical indicators will surely be reduced after you get introduced with the great Fibonacci retracement tool. Traders, who are introduced with Fibonacci retracement tool, even install their trading layout with only a single indicator, generally RSI.

I also emphasize on the trading layout with one or two technical indicators installed. Fibonacci retracement tool when drawn starting from a low and ending to a high draws the support levels. In other side, Fibonacci retracement tool when drawn starting from a high  and ending to a low draws the resistance levels.

Fibonacci Retracement is a technical analysis tool to find the resistance and support levels on forex price chart. The tool is drawn adding a low and a high with a straight line. The tool shows  retracement levels at 23.6%, 38.2%, 50%, 61.8%, 100%, 113%, 141%, 161.8%, 261.8% and so on.The first question that come in mind is "Why this retracement levels are important?"

These retracement levels are important in forex trading because these levels are closely related with the Fibonacci ratios hence the magical Golden Ratio. You should already know that the Fibonacci ratios are closely related to golden ratio. To make you understand the fact let me explain "How the Fibonacci Retracement levels are measured?"

As in the above image, when we draw a Fibonacci retracement tool starting from a high to a low, we get the different retracement levels. These retracement levels actually represent the Fibonacci ratios. For example the retracement level at point B is measure by AB/SE=0.38*100=38%, and 0.38 is a Fibonacci ratio. Similarly, all other retracement levels are marked at different Fibonacci ratios.

If you already read my post about golden ratio and Fibonacci series you must know the significance of Fibonacci series in the universe.
