Gate.io AMA - Fibonacci Time Zone | Oct.20th

27 October 17:36

Q: In this event we will talk about the 5th tool of Fibonacci - Time Zone.

A: Let's go through the basic knowledge first. Here to review of some basic points of Fibonacci.

1.Fibonacci levels are used as guides, possible areas where a trade could develop. The price should confirm prior to acting on the Fibonacci level.

2.The usage of the Fibonacci studies is subjective since the trader must use highs and lows of their choice. Which highs and lows are chosen will affect the results a trader gets.

3.Only measure single way trend.

Q: Let's talk about the time frame to be used for Fibnacci.


1.They are very popular with financial market technical analysis traders because they can be applied to any time frame.

2.If you used it for a long term time frame of 1M/1W/1D, maybe you will get entries once or twice a week, but it is more stable and safe.

3.If you use it for a short term time frame of 8H/4H/1H/30M, the you will get many entries but you will take more risks.

Q: And let's study the meaning of Fib Time Zone.

1.Fibonacci time zones are vertical lines that represent potential areas where a swing high, low, or reversal could occur.

2.Fibonacci time zones may not indicate exact reversal points. They are time-based areas to be aware of.

3.Fibonacci time zones only indicate potential areas of importance related to time.

Q: Now let's go to the details about how Fibonacci Time Zones Work.


1.Fibonacci times zones are these numbers when added to the initial time selected. Thus, if we choose a start date of April 1, this would be the time (0). The first Fibonacci time zone vertical line will then appear on the next trading session (1), the second will appear two sessions later (2), and then three (3), five (5), and eight (8) days later, and so on.

2.If adding Fibonacci time zones by hand, the first five numbers can be avoided, as the indicator is not particularly reliable when all the vertical lines are packed together. Therefore, some traders start drawing their vertical lines 13 or 21 periods after their starting point.

Q:What Do Fibonacci Time Zones Tell You?


1.Fibonacci time zones can be used for confirmation of trades or analysis. For example, if the price is approaching a support area and also a Fibonacci time zone, and the price then rises off support, the two methods confirm each other.

2.A low point is potentially in and the price could keep rising. Another form of analysis is required for assessing how high the price may rise, as Fibonacci time zones don't indicate the magnitude of moves. The price may make a low and then rise significantly, or it may only temporarily rise before falling to a new low.

Q: Let's see how Fibonacci Time Zones vs. Fibonacci Retracements


1.Fibonacci time zones are vertical lines that represent future time periods where the price could make a high, low, or reverse course.

2.Fibonacci retracements instead indicate areas the price could pull back off of a high or low. Retracements are price-based and provide support or resistance areas based on Fibonacci numbers.

Q: And let's see what is the Limitation of Using Fibonacci Time Zones.


1.Fibonacci time zones are a subjective indicator in that the starting point selected will vary by trader.

2.Time zones don't provide any information on the magnitude of price moves.

3.The indicator shouldn't be used on its own. Combine it with trend and price action analysis, as well as other technical indicators and/or fundamental analysis.

4.The first few Fibonacci numbers create relatively tight Fibonacci Time Zones at the beginning of the chart. Because of this it may be necessary to ignore the first few zones. After the first few zones, the zones expand quickly and allows some breathing room as the sequence unfolds.
