Fibonacci in the markets - PRICE into TIME!

Recommended Posts

We all know that the universe, planets, Earth and Human beings work to the laws of natural growth and display Fibonacci ratios

(If you stood inside a circle, outstretched limbs you'd create a pentagram shape, the pentagram is riddled with Fibonacci ratios and golden triangles)

Even the "dance" that ensues between the interaction cycles of the Earth Vs Venus create a lovely pentagram, once enough rotations have passed!!

So Fibonacci in the markets? - Of course it is!

Depends how you use it - 1 method I use to time the markets, YES time them, is to apply a little known mathematical multiplication using a Fibonacci ratio (not shown or revealed), this method can time the big turns in the market highly accurately

Elliott Wave International first introduced me to the concept of Fibonacci levels, ratios etc, but it'**** and miss in general application and I don't use it how they use it.

Look at the chart of the DOW below - again this method is hit and miss - but I just wanted to show you of the beauty of the markets - Markets regardless of what most people tell you, are NOT random, they are uniquely governed by mathematics and a complex inter-relation of growth.

Which when looked back on with hindsight - definite mathematical relations can be calculated and seen - I obviously know that this is virtually useless in the real world when we trade the blank right hand side of a chart!!!!!! (I've done extensive research and testing over the past decade and for me I can't find a way to use Fibonacci on price levels with a high level of certainty and by that i mean 75%+ of the time)

There's definitely traders out there like Joe DiNapoli who use Fib levels to trade with and from and the likes of Elliott Wavers

The thing to think about and remember is that EVERY major swing high or low in the markets will have a Fibonacci mathematical relationship to its previous or past swings - so the growth or decomposition of a market  is moving in a predefined direction to satisfy that growth (knowing the end date is what eludes us traders and investors!

Also as some of you are highly likely to question this post - That's fair enough - to some of you it will seem far-fetched - It did for me when I first came across it - however, repeat the method a few times and it crops up far more often than random permits.

Chart below shows how PRICE can turn into TIME when Fib ratios applied (and vice versa!)


DId I time the market in Feb using the method above? = NO, I used the below method 

Now I didn't use the above method to work this out (see below) - but this is what I produced and posted to another site back in June 2017 (confirmed by the date in the yellow box on the chart) - As you can see in June 2017 the March 2020 period was a potential highly volatile period of time for the markets and the fall down into the Dec 2018 low highlighted a possible reversal - traders would then use methods to identify the low to get in (you would NOT trade these dates blindly as they don't always work!) 


Now back in June 2017, a few things had not happened so I was still using a projection date of Dec 2016 for the cycles - If you move the projection date back 1 month to Nov 4th 2016 then the Dec 2018 LOW and the HIGH of FEB 2020 came in BANG on TIME

    • Sainsburys full year earnings and Unilever’s first quarter trading update both say the same thing, UK consumers are in for higher prices. The war in Ukraine, supply chain issues and the effects of ongoing Covid all to blame.      
    • US Dollar (DXY) Daily Price and Analysis US Q1 GDP may stall the greenback’s advance. A 20-year high nears for the US dollar. The multi-month US dollar rally continues with the greenback printing a fresh high today ahead of the first look at US Q1 GDP at 12.30 GMT. The US dollar basket (DXY) has been boosted by renewed weakness in the Euro and the Japanese Yen, as investors move from lower-yielding to higher-yielding currencies, while safe-haven flows continue to benefit the greenback. The US growth release later in the session is expected to show a sharp slowdown from the robust Q4 figure of 6.9%. The markets are currently pricing in growth of just 1% for the first three months of this year, with the slowdown mainly due to a reduction in inventory accrual over the quarter. This release is unlikely to move the greenback, unless there is a large miss or beat, as the Fed believe that 2022 US growth will be robust enough to let them tighten monetary policy sharply without damaging the economy. The latest US Core PCE data – the Fed’s preferred inflation reading – is released on Friday and this may have more effect on the US dollar than today’s GDP data. For all market moving economic data and events, see the DailyFX Calendar. The ongoing US dollar rally has been aided by weakness across a range of G7 currencies including the Euro, the Japanese Yen, and the British Pound. The Euro continues to battle with lowly growth expectations, exacerbated by energy concerns, the British Pound is mired by weak economic data, while the Japanese Yen is in freefall as the BoJ continues with its ultra-loose monetary policy.   The US dollar continues to press higher and looks set to break above 103.96, the March 2020 high. Above here the US dollar would be back at levels last seen nearly two decades ago. The March resistance will likely hold in the short-term, especially with month-end portfolio rebalancing at the end of the week, but US dollar strength is set to continue in the months ahead.
