We have had a number of requests to do a video on Fibonacci retracements and how they can be used in trading.

I hope you enjoy this brief lesson and it helps you understand how to use this important tool.
As always our videos are free to watch and there are no registration requirements. I hope you have the time to comment on our blog and tell us if this video helped you understand this important trading tool or how you're already using it.
