Fibonacci Numbers - What numbers can be used for trading indicator settings?

When looking for an ideal number to use for your indicator or Moving Average settings, Fibonacci Numbers can be used.

1, 2, 3, 5, 8, 13, 21, 34, 55, 89, 144, 233, 377, 610

It is not recommended to use anything higher than 233 as this would cause a lot of lag.

Next time you're working with a technical indicator and you find it hard to experiment with a number, don't just try a random number, instead, use these numbers whenever you're trying to adjust your indicators.

How are these numbers formed as part of the Fibonacci Sequence?

Fibonacci numbers are found by adding up the two numbers before it, together.

Did you know?

Several indicators and traders already utilize the Fibonacci numbers in their indicators and systems:

• Trader, Raghee Horner, famously uses the Fibonacci number of 34 to construct her GRaB Candles and 34 EMA Wave.
• Dean Malone, author of the Traders Dynamic Index indicator, uses the Fibonacci number of 34 for the yellow Median Base Line (MBL) settings in the TDI.

Can you show me an example of Fibonacci numbers used in indicators?

Sure. Here is a example template which comes with two Exponential Moving Averages, both using Fibonacci numbers as their inputs 13 & 55.

Thanks Jimmy for this thread on Fibonacci numbers. I like to use them more than any other number, they are my favourite

For my own use, here are the Fibonacci numbers I like to use:
- Short term : 8
- Medium term : 21
- Long term : 144
So I use 3 in total most of the time which are 8, 21, 144.

Also I sometimes use the golden number 1.618 for the shifts or deviations of the moving averages I use.
