__How to use Fibonacci Calculator or Fibonacci Retracement calculator :__

### Fibonacci levels during an uptrend

For example, if the apple stock goes from 200 to 300, you want the Fibonacci retracement levels :

enter 200 in low price column

enter 300 in high price column

then press calculate

you will get the Fibonacci retracement levels.

suppose the apple stock went from 200 to 300, then it retraced back to 250 and you want the Fibonacci projections or Fibonacci extensions levels :

enter 200 in low price column

enter 300 in high price column

enter 250 in a custom column

then press calculates

you will get the Fibonacci extension levels.

### Fibonacci levels during the downtrend

For example, if the amazon stock goes from 2000 to 1500 and you want the Fibonacci retracement levels :

enter 2000 in high price column

enter 1500 in low price column

then press calculate

you will get the Fibonacci retracement levels.

suppose the amazon stock went from 2000 to 1500, then it retraced back to 1750 and you want the Fibonacci projections or Fibonacci extensions levels :

enter 2000 in high price column

enter 1500 in low price column

enter 1750 in a custom column

then press calculate

you will get the Fibonacci extension levels.

## What is Fibonacci?

Fibonacci is a number calculated by adding the two numbers. It is a sequence in which if we divide consecutive numbers, the ratio or division will be same everytime. This is a very impressive trading tool.

## Fibonacci Retracement

In technical Analysis, there is a concept of support and resistance levels. Stocks don't move in a straight line, they always move in a certain direction and retrace back. Fibonacci retracements are support and resistance levels for a stock or currency pair.

The major Fibonacci retracement levels are

The Fibonacci level

The major Fibonacci retracement levels are

**38.2 %, 50%**and**61.8%**. There are some more minor Fibonacci retracement levels like 23.6%, 76.4 % and 88.6 %. These levels are natural support and resistance levels for the stocks.The Fibonacci level

**61.8%**is known as**golden level.**When a stock is in good trend, it generally retraces back to this level. Even many things in nature are also arranged in the ratio of 0.618. It is a very essential support and resistance level for a stock.## Fibonacci Sequence or Fibonacci Series

Fibonacci Sequence is also known as the Fibonacci Series. This sequence was given by

**Leonardo Pisano Bigollo.**A number in a Fibonacci sequence is obtained by adding the two previous numbers. For example :**0,1,1,2,5,8,13,21,34,55,89,144...................**

0+1 = 1

1+1 = 2

1+2 = 3

2+3 = 5

3+5 = 8

5+8 = 13

8+13 = 21

13+21=34

If we divide the consecutive numbers of the sequence, each result of the division roughly equals to

**0.618**. Therefore,**0.618**is known as golden Fibonacci ratio.## Fibonacci Chart Software
