78.6% Fibonacci Retracement













Image illustrates 78.6% Fibonacci Retracement

Apart from the 38.2%, 50% and 61.8% Fibonacci retracements, Fibonacci traders also use the 78.6% Fibonacci retracement to identify oversold (or undervalued) financial instruments that have a brighter future or growing fundamentals. One can also use the same Fibonacci retracement level to find overbought (overvalued) stocks that are under pressure from their competitors (losing market share) or degrading fundamentals.


Technical traders use the 78.6% Fibonacci retracements to pinpoint stocks that are becoming bullish or bearish.

Fibonacci traders combine both the 88.6% and 78.6% Fibonacci retracements to highlight a hot spot trading zone where high probability trades are more likely to take place. Indeed, the zone between the 78.6% and 88.6% Fibonacci retracements is a hot spot trading zone.


Generally, hedge funds begin to buy stocks that are undervalued from that zone down to the 100% Fibonacci retracement level. One should never use the 78.6% Fibonacci retracement on its own. Always, one must use it in conjunction with the fundamental analysis. Note that it is the preferred Fibonacci key

level of the hedge funds, investment banks and professional position traders who are combining the technical analysis with the financials. Though, swing and day traders can also use it, they ought to do the same things like the big financial

markets players. If a financial instrument is fundamentally bearish, but rallies up to the 78.6% Fibonacci retracement level, it becomes a very interesting bearish candidate. The opposite is also true for those that are intrinsically bullish but pull back (under a low trading volume) to the same key Fibonacci level.


Using 78.6% Fibonacci Retracement As A Technical Trader


To avoid misusing the 78.6% Fibonacci retracement level as a technical trader, one must use it in conjunction with the rising and declining channels. Also be sure to check the next higher time frame after the set-up time frame.

For example, the price is in a declining channel on the daily chart, and rallies up to the 78.6% Fibonacci retracement level.

Though, it looks good on the daily chart, it is wise to check also the monthly chart before validating that daily chart

Fibonacci trading set-up. 


 If the price is in a rising channel on the monthly chart, but one wants to sell on the daily chart one ought to take defensive measures or skip that trade. For a day trader that identifies similar bearish set-up on the four-hour chart, he or she must check the weekly chart. And those using the same Fibonacci trading strategy on the hourly chart will check the daily chart. Check the fundamentals but also validate the set-up on another higher time frame.

Will you promise me that you will try your very best to adopt a more prudent approach when trading the 78.6%

Fibonacci retracement? Alright, you do not have to promise me anything, but make sure you do lose.



Traders Also Combine 78.6% With the Elliott Zigzag Pattern

Note that one is looking for a valid Elliott wave pattern in the vicinity of the 78.6% Fibonacci retracement level.
For example a flat or zigzag wave correction is completed as the price reaches the 78.6% Fibonacci retracement level. Or ABCDE wave pattern is being formed at that Fib level.

Others Also Rely On 78.6% Fibonacci Retracement And Gartley Pattern.

Really the 78.6% Fibonacci retracement traders are also Gartley pattern traders. Note that the Gartley pattern is completed at the 78.6% Fibonacci retracement level of the XA. The Gartley pattern is one the Fibonacci patterns.

Sometimes, risk averse investors often disregard financial instruments that dip below the 50% Fibonacci retracement level or reach the 78.6% Fibonacci retracement level. Those cautious traders and investors would only attempt to buy a declining financial instrument in the zone 100% Fibonacci retracement level or above the 50% Fibonacci retracement level. Note that some financial instruments often turn around at the 100% Fib level instead of to 78.6%.


One can go to the monthly chart and check over the last five years if the stock often finds a support at the 78.6% or 100% Fibonacci retracement level. What one is trying to find out is the behaviour of those specialist traders who trade the same stock the same way years after years. So, if one recognises that the financial instrument often fail to find a support level at 78.6% level, it will not be a reliable candidate for the 78.6% Fibonacci trading set-up.


However, it does not mean that those that frequently turn around at the 78.6% Fibonacci retracement level will always do the same thing but they are just more reliable candidates. Furthermore, those that often reach the 100% Fibonacci retracement can sometimes turn around at the 78.6% Fibonacci retracement level.


Is that too much for you to take in? Do not worry, give it enough time and continue to improve.

If a losing trade does occur review it and find out the real cause of the loss. Ask questions like:

have I missed anything? what went wrong here? And fix the problem. Please do not blame the Italian mathematician Leonardo of Pisa, (known as Fibonacci) or his 1202 book Liber Abaci.

Understanding 78.6% Fibonacci Retracement Level

One will understand more the 78.6% Fibonacci key level if one knows that the 50% Fibonacci retracement key level divides a price move into two zones. The bullish zone above and bearish below.

When a bullish financial instrument is declining from the bullish zone and reaches the 78.6% Fibonacci retracement level and fundamentals are still solid, (of course in a healthy financial market) bullish traders consider it oversold. In that instance, the bullish financial instrument that dips below the 50% Fibonacci retracement level is at the wrong place (in theory) because it has strong fundamentals.


In contrast, a bearish financial instrument that is rising from the bearish zone, and reaches the 78.6% Fibonacci retracement level with degrading or weak fundamentals (of course in a bearish financial market) is overbought. In that instance, the bearish financial instrument that rises above the 50% Fibonacci retracement level is at the wrong place (in theory) because it has unreliable fundamentals.
