Thanks Ezekiel to share this video with us. I am familiar with Fibonacci but there was some uncleared points in my mind. Your video helped me to get answer of all those points.

Re: Forex Trading Strategies – Fibonacci

I see some confusing conflicts with the video you presented:

1) Drawing Fibonacci Lines top and bottom are subjective the way you present it (and the way most people present it). It is all relative which "top" or which "bottom" you use.

2) It is a lagging indicator when done this way, because you must wait for a retracement has taken place before making any trading decisions.

3) the pin bar that you describe is relative to the timeframe and broker that you are using. It appeared you were using 4 hr timeframe. But what if you were using 1 hr? Or 4 hr timeframe, but a different broker?

4) You are using moving averages (lagging) as an additional filter. Why? Isn't the properly drawn fibonacci enough.

I will offer my .02 cents/rupis/ZAR/(your fx of choice )

1) Yes, it is all relative and subjective. Just be consistent and if doesn't work, choose differently. Partly to answer (4), some people take the high/low on both sides of an MA. I use the most recent action for that timeframe that is reasonable.

2) Yes, in most cases there must be a retracement. However, in almost everything you trade exlcuding newly issued IPOs, there would have been a retracement and probably multiple retracements. You can also use the Fib Projection / Extensions as well.

3) Yes, that is right. However, you should know on which timeframe you are entering your trade. I assume he is trading off the 4 hour chart. Even comparing 4 hr vs 1 hr, a pinbar on the 4 hr would show as price rejection on a 1 hr. As far as different brokers showing different prices, I would say try more brokers and see which are most in-line with each other and drop the outliers. Between the 2 brokers I use, differences are typically around 1.5 pips max on majors. I have seen as much as 8 pips IIRC, but on a 4 hr pinbar, 8 pips is moderately negligible depending on the fx.

4) Is any single indicator enough? I would say no In my experience one should use at least 2 indicators that measure different things. There is a school of thinking that uses MAs to reinforce the validity of Fib levels. Another is to use Fib confluences on multiple timeframes.
