Remarks

Objects of the FibonacciIndicator class are contained in the IndicatorCollection returned by the XYDiagram2DSeriesViewBase.Indicators property.

To create a Fibonacci Indicator, it is necessary to specify its FinancialIndicator.Point1 and FinancialIndicator.Point2 properties. And, each point is defined by its FinancialIndicatorPoint.Argument and FinancialIndicatorPoint.ValueLevel properties.

There following Fibonacci Indicator kinds (specified via the FibonacciIndicator.Kind property) are available: Fibonacci Arcs, Fibonacci Fans and Fibonacci Retracement.

The appearance of a Fibonacci Indicator is determined by its Indicator.Color and Indicator.LineStyle properties. And, for the indicator's additional levels (which depend on the indicator's kind), the following properties are available: FibonacciIndicator.BaseLevelColor and FibonacciIndicator.BaseLevelLineStyle.

For more information, see Fibonacci Indicators.

Examples

This example demonstrates how to create a Fibonacci Indicator of a certain kind (Arcs, Fans or Retracements), and add it to a financial series.

To do this, create an instance of the FibonacciIndicator class, and specify its FibonacciIndicator.Kind property. Then, add this indicator to the series collection of indicators, returned by the XYDiagram2DSeriesViewBase.Indicators property.
