Fibonacci Retracements is similar to Fibonacci Retracement and it also sets price lines on the chart where the distance between them is based on Fibonacci sequence. But while Fibonacci Retracements is more about identifying where an entry point may be on the chart, the Fibonacci Extension tool is for where the market will potentially go (exit point).

Fibonacci Retracements is drawn by three points. To add Fibonacci Extension to the chart, click its name or the iconfib_extensionon the Drawings Panel. First, specify low and then high point on the chart to draw a trendline. Then specify the third point to place the second trendline in order to draw the Fibonacci Extension.

Note: To cancel drawing, press ESC
