FIBS = Key

The key to any potential idea of the 'future' of price or trend will be with a Fib Tool
Ninja it is the F8 or F9. These have been the most helpful to me the last 10 years
I also appreciate the ideas I find at Big Mikes.

Due to time constraints, please do not PM me if your question can be resolved or answered on the forum.

Need help?
1) Stop changing things. No new indicators, charts, or methods. Be consistent with what is in front of you first.
2) Start a journal and post to it daily with the trades you made to show your strengths and weaknesses.
3) Set goals for yourself to reach daily. Make them about how you trade, not how much money you make.
4) Accept responsibility for your actions. Stop looking elsewhere to explain away poor performance.
5) Where to start as a trader? Watch this webinar and read this thread for hundreds of questions and answers.

Yes it is. Comes from the second and third numbers in the series. Equating 'Fib' with the Golden Ratio or it's derivatives is only one way of looking at them. If you start with two rabbits you might end up with more or not, depends if the fox turns up.

I'm just looking at Fibonacci numbers. 50 isn't a fibonacci number.

number 50 got mixed up into a fib tool;

Quoting 
The Fibonacci Retracements Tool at StockCharts shows four common retracements: 23.6%, 38.2%, 50% and 61.8%. From the Fibonacci section above, it is clear that 23.6%, 38.2% and 61.8% stem from ratios found within the Fibonacci sequence. The 50% retracement is not based on a Fibonacci number. Instead, this number stems from Dow Theory's assertion that the Averages often retrace half their prior move.

Leonardo's original book still worth a read. Some say the pit traders got there first because it was the easiest head maths, others that it's obviously two steps forward one back, in any progressive movement stuff starts somewhere and often haltingly. I just remember it as helping win buttons.

What about trendlines in Wyckoff analysis? TL's have nothing to do with future move but people are still using them, go figure? of course you can draw perfect TL's with the benefit of hindsight.
