Fibonacci retracements is a technical analysis technique used to determine potential support and resistance levels. It is based on the Fibonacci sequence and on the idea that Fibonacci ratios will often act as supports or resistances during market retracements.

To draw Fibonacci retracement lines:

- Click on the "Fibonacci retracement" icon

- Click on an extreme point on a chart (Example: high)
- Click on the second extreme point (Example: low) to complete the drawing process of the Fibonacci retracement lines.

0% line corresponds to the start of the retracement and the 100% line corresponds to the original start of the movement.
