Auto Fib Retracement

Definition

Fibonacci retracements is a popular instrument used by technical analysts to determine support and resistance areas. In technical analysis, this tool is created by taking two extreme points (usually a peak and a minimum) on the chart and dividing the vertical distance by the key Fibonacci coefficients equal to 23.6%, 38.2%, 50%, 61.8%, and 100%.

Once these levels are defined, horizontal lines are then drawn and used to determine possible support and resistance levels.

When using the Auto Fibonacci Retracement (Auto fib) indicator, there is no need to explicitly set two points, as is done when using the Fib Retracement tool. The indicator will do everything for you.

To use this tool, open Indicators on your chart and find Auto Fib Retracement in the Built-ins tab.

You can also find it in Pine Editor via the new tab - Auto Fib Retracements.
