Fibonacci Golden Ratio:

Fibonacci retracement levels are derived from the Fibonacci Golden Ratio.

Fibonacci numbers are created by adding two numbers consistently. Consider 0 and 1 for instance.

Add 0 and 1 we get 1. Add 1 and 1 we get 2.

So the Fibonacci numbers go this way: 0,1,1,2,3,5,8,13,21,34,55,89,etc.

So the Fibonacci retracement levels are derived by dividing consecutive numbers like 0/1=0. 1/1=1, 2/1 = 2, 3/2 = 1.5, etc.
