Hi,
Fibonacci retracement – The Fibonacci sequence is one of the most famous formulas in mathematics. Each number in the sequence is the sum of the two numbers that precede it. So, the sequence goes: 0, 1, 1, 2, 3, 5, 8, 13, 21, 34, and so on. Traders believe the Fibonacci series has its application in stock charts as it identified potential retracement levels. Fibonacci retracements are levels (61.8%, 38.2%, and 23.6%) up to which a stock can possibly retrace before it resumes the original directional move.

Golden Mean is 1.618 Logic behind the golden mean is the ratio of two consecutive numbers in the Fibonacci series is the same for all the two consecutive numbers.
Example 1: 21/13=1.618 Example 2: 144/89=1.618
