The function of this level as the Support & Resistance, where a trader will do open buy / sell after prices touched the level drops. First, determine the swing high and swing low. Swing high is the highest area of the wave movement (wave). Swing low is the lowest price area. Install the Fibonacci retracement indicator on the chart.
When the current rising trend, plug by pulling fibonacci retracement of the swing low to high swing point.
61.8 and 38.2 on a Fibonacci level is the most important determinant of the level of OP.
1. reversal @ bounce price reversal occurred in 61.8 then it is likely the target price was 161.8
2. reversal @ bounce price reversal occurs at the level of 38.2, the possibility of price target is 127.2
3. 127.2 can act as support or resistance test.
– Fibonacci extension used to know something-bound elongation trend (up or down). Level extension is as follows 127.2, 138.2, 161.8, 200.0 and 261.8. Trader typically uses this level position to determine the point where they have to take a take profit (TP).
