This book is a critical exploration of Fibonacci numbers, retracements, projections, time frames and fanlines, and their current usage within the financial markets by technical analysts. These methods are seen as effective technical analysis tools, however the author also sets out occasions when using them is inappropriate and can be costly in both financial and credibility terms. He investigates common assumptions that screen-based charting systems, which allow traders and students to draw Fibonacci retracements and angles without indicating their drawbacks, can lead to the inaccurate application of an otherwise powerful tool.After a brief look at the history of Fibonacci, the author moves on to its use and application within pricing action in financial markets (Fixed Income, Equity, Foreign Exchange, Commodity and Index). He takes a practical look at the often-misunderstood Gann Analysis and shows the reader how to apply Gann techniques in order to improve trading profitability. He also draws attention to the overuse and misuse of easily applied computer packages available to professional and amateur traders.The enclosed CD-ROM contains colour Fibonacci charts as well as Gann retracements and projections. Additionally, content includes Gann Hexagon and Square spreadsheets for Price/Yield and day count.MacLean, George Alexander is the author of 'Fibonacci And Gann Applications In Financial Markets Practical Applications Of Natural And Synthetic Ratios In Technical Analysis', published 2005 under ISBN 9780470012178 and ISBN 047001217X.
