The harmonic volatility indicator is the first technical analysis to be applied in Fibonacci’s analysis of financial volatility. The Harmonic Volatility Indicator is another trading tool that acts at the price action level, combining robust Fibonacci relationships at different levels (0.618, 0.382, etc.) with market volatility. Initially, the Harmonic Volatility Indicator was developed to overcome the limitation and weakness of Gann’s Angle, also known as Gann’s Fan.
It has been shown that the Harmonic Volatility Indicator can be applied similarly to the Gann Angle (or Gann Fan) in your charts. At the same time, since volatility is very important information for traders, the indicator of harmonic volatility can also bring many other benefits to all traders. The Harmonic Volatility Indicator can either be incorporated into your current technical analysis, or you can use it as a complement to the totally independent technical analysis for your trading. It is also very effective at detecting mature trends in its final phase. You can use this powerful tool to identify significant levels of support and resistance, trend reversal points, and trend forces.
