Determinin Risk/Reward using Fibonacci Levels

In today’s lesson, we are going to demonstrate an example of a daily-H4 chart combination trading. We also find out how the price reacts to Fibonacci retracement levels and how Fibonacci levels may help us determine risk-reward. Let us start with the daily chart.


This is the daily chart. The chart shows that the price heads towards the North with good bearish momentum and crosses a long way. The last candle comes out as a spinning top with a bullish body. It is a bullish reversal candle, but not a strong one. Let us flip over to the H4 chart and see how it looks.

The chart shows that it produces a morning star. It is a strong bullish reversal pattern. The last candle comes out as a bullish inside bar. The buyers may wait for the price to find its support and produce a bullish reversal candle to go long on the chart.

The price heads towards the South to have a bearish correction. The last candle comes out as a Doji candle. It seems that the price may have found its support. It may not take long to produce a bullish reversal candle.

As expected, the chart produces a bullish engulfing candle closing well above the last swing low. Traders love to have a signal candle like this to trigger an entry. It usually attracts more traders to trade and brings more liquidity. However, here is an equation that we must remember. When the price makes a correction, it is good for the traders to have an engulfing candle as a signal candle closing within the last swing low. It offers the price to travel more space towards the trend. However, when the price consolidates, it must make a breakout at the last support/resistance, though. Let us find out how the price moves after that bullish engulfing candle.

The price heads towards the North with a sluggish pace. Moreover, the price gets caught within two horizontal levels for several candles. It seems that the price is struggling to go towards the North further. Let us draw Fibonacci levels and try to find out the reason behind it.

The chart produces the signal candle at the 61.8% level, which is fantastic. Usually, the price goes towards the level of 161.8% if it trends from the 61.8% level. Over here, the candle closes at 123.6% level, which means the price does not have enough space travel. This is why the price moves towards the North sluggishly. Fibonacci levels help us determine where to set stop loss and take profit. It also helps us determine the risk-reward, which we must not forget.
