# Determining Setups and Key Levels Using Fibonacci Retracement and Symmetry

In futures trading, Fibonacci numbers are used as a technical analysis tool to identify potential price levels. Traders apply Fibonacci retracement and extension lines to the price action in a chart to identify key support and resistance levels, trend reversals in their trend analysis, and price targets.

## What are Fibonacci Numbers? How is Fibonacci Retracement Used in Trading?

Fibonacci numbers are a sequence of numbers where each number is the sum of the two preceding ones, starting from 0 and 1. This sequence (0, 1, 1, 2, 3, 5, 8, 13, 21, etc.) is not just a mathematical curiosity, but it appears in various natural phenomena, from the arrangement of leaves on a stem to the patterns of hurricanes.

Fibonacci numbers are prevalent throughout nature, often appearing in the arrangement of leaves, flowers, and seeds. For example, the spirals in seashells, sunflowers, or pinecones often reflect Fibonacci numbers. This sequence is significant because it reflects an efficient way to pack structures tightly to optimize space and energy.

In financial markets, Fibonacci retracement levels are used to predict potential support and resistance levels by analyzing the past price movements and projecting them into the future. These levels, such as 38.2%, 50%, and 61.8%, help traders identify points where the market might stall or reverse its direction.
