Hi guys,

This is a question from Prepnuggets. Please help me with it.

Question:

A stock’s recent high was $100. A technician expects a retracement. Which of the following support levels is NOT based on the fibonacci ratio?

- $66.70
- $65.00
- $60.00

Their solution:

$66.70 is 2/3 of $100. 2/3 is a fibonacci ratio.

$60.00 is 3/5 of $100. 3/5 is a fibonacci ratio.

In my idea, Fibonacci ratios is either 1.618 or 0.618 so I will take 100*0.618 to find support level but it’s not the case.

I don’t see any mention of the Fibonacci sequence anywhere in the current Level I curriculum.

This seems to be an outdated question.

Noted with thanks. That said, it’d be nice if you can explain to me

I would tend to agree with you: if anything were to be called the Fibonacci ratio, it would be the golden ratio:

\phi = \frac{1 + \sqrt{5}}{2} = 1.618034\cdots

The 2018 curriculum was, I believe, the last time technical analysis was included in Level I Quant. In it, it mentioned that Elliott looked at the ratios of successive numbers in the Fibonacci sequence, but it never referred to them as Fibonacci ratios.

Welcome to the world of third-party practice questions.

Would a ϕ-th party provider have better questions???

Undoubtedly!

As would a 13^{th}.

But not an 8^{th}, nor a 21^{st}.
