Fibonacci Indicators

  • 4 minutes to read

The Chart control provides Fibonacci Arcs, Fibonacci Fans, and Fibonacci Retracement indicators. These indicators are calculated based on the Fibonacci sequence and used to expose the golden ratio symmetry between two given series points in various visual forms.

How to Add the Fibonacci Arcs Indicator to a Series

Fibonacci Arcs are shown as concentric circles whose centers are on the first point the FinancialIndicator.Argument1 and FinancialIndicator.ValueLevel1 properties define. The distance between the first and second point (defined by the FinancialIndicator.Argument2 and FinancialIndicator.ValueLevel2 properties) is the radius of the Fibonacci Arc that indicates level 1. Intermediate arc radii are defined based on the Fibonacci ratios in proportion to this distance.

The markup below demonstrates how to add the Fibonacci Arcs indicator to the chart.

How to Add the Fibonacci Fans Indicator to a Series

Several trend lines that fan out from a point the FinancialIndicator.Argument1 and FinancialIndicator.ValueLevel1 properties define, represent the Fibonacci Fans indicator. A line passing through the origin point and a point the FinancialIndicator.Argument2 and FinancialIndicator.ValueLevel2) properties define, is a base level trend line indicating level 0. The Fibonacci ratios specify the other trend lines' deviation levels in relation to the base level.

WPF_FibonacciFans

The markup below demonstrates how to add the Fibonacci Fans indicator to the chart.

<dxc:StockSeries2D.Indicators>
    <dxc:FibonacciFans Argument1="2016/06/27"

                       ShowLevel23_6="True"
                       ShowLevel76_4="True"      
                       LegendText="Fibonacci Fans"  
                       ShowInLegend="True">

Indicator.ShowInLegend Specifies whether to show the indicator in a chart legend.
Indicator.LegendText Text that shows with an indicator marker in the legend.

How to Add the Fibonacci Retracement Indicator to a Series

The Fibonacci Retracement is several parallel lines. Like the other Fibonacci indicators, the Fibonacci Retracement indicator is based on two points: a horizontal line passing through the first point defines the 100% level; a parallel line drawn through the second point indicates the 0% level. The parallel lines which divide the space between these lines indicate the 38.2%, 50% and 61.8 levels (specified by the key Fibonacci ratios). You can also display additional levels by enabling the FibonacciIndicator.ShowLevel23_6, FibonacciIndicator.ShowLevel76_4 and FibonacciRetracement.ShowAdditionalLevels options.
