EUR/USD Spotlight: Indicator of the Day.

"INDICATOR OF THE DAY" - 78.6% FIB RETRACMENT Many traders are familiar with some of the key fibonacci retracements such as the 38.2%, 50% and 61.8% fib retracements. However, today, we will look at our favorite retracement level in the form of the 78.6% fibonacci retracement. The 78.6% fib retracement is arguably the last relevant retracement level and last chance for a given move to stall out and resume the underlying course of the trend before considering a full 100% retracement. As such, establishing reversal positions off of the 78.6% fib will often present highly compelling risk/reward trade set-ups. Eur/Usd: In the above example, we can see that the market has stalled out by the 78.6% retrace off of the 1.4720-1.2455 move which comes in at 1.4235, and could be looking to roll back over for a resumption of the broader downtrend. If this is the case, selling by the 78.6% fib retrace, could very well set-up a compelling short opportunity.
