As stated on allstarcharts.com by expert with more than 10 years, Fibonacci Analysis is one of the most valuable and easy to use tools for stock market technical analysis. And Fibonacci tools can be applied to longer-term as well as to short-term. 

In this post we will take a look how Fibonacci numbers can help to stock market analysis. For this we will use different daily stock prices data charts with added Fibonacci lines. Just for the references – The Fibonacci numbers (or Fibonacci sequence), are numbers that after the first two are the sum of the two preceding ones : 0, 1, 1, 2, 3, 5, 8, 13, 21, 34, 55 …

According to “Magic of Fibonacci Sequence in Prediction of Stock Behavior”  Fibonacci series are widely used in financial market to predict the resistance and support levels through Fibonacci retracement. In this method major peak and trough are identified, then it is followed by dividing the vertical distance into 23.6%, 38.2%, 50%, 61.8% and 100%. These percentage numbers (except 50%) are obtained by dividing element in Fibonacci sequence by its successors for example 13/55=0.236. 
Ratio of two successive numbers of Fibonacci sequence is approximately 1.618034, so if we multiply 23.6 by 1.618034 we will get next level number 38.2.
