Automatically draws fibonacci retracements using the highest price and lowest price from the current view and timeframe.

Fibonacci retracements use horizontal lines to indicate areas of support or resistance at the key Fibonacci levels before it continues in the original direction. These levels are created by drawing a trendline between two extreme points and then dividing the vertical distance by the key Fibonacci ratios of: 23.6%, 38.2%, 50%, 61.8%, 78.6%, and 100%.

Hey Ben!

This is awesome stuff, thanks for sharing so much here. I tried adding this study into TOS and it keeps running the error of "Invalid statement: < at 6:1"

Any idea how to fix this?

Anyone knows how to make the color (always red in code) selectable in study's settings?

Would be nice to set the color for coefficients (like 50% a different color).

Maybe once I see the code to do that (going to check other studies), I can make these additions myself.

Meanwhile, 50% line color is in code line 107 ..

107 Retracement3.assignvaluecolor(color.red);

@thinky & @PlantainPapi we have just what you need right here on this site: https://usethinkscript.com/threads/color-labels-with-rgbs-for-thinkorswim.214/ the more popular colors are here, but you may have to use the command "create color" to use them. Please check the code and the answer will be there. Of course, you can always use the standard colors that are available in the think script editor. I hope that helps.

Hi Ben, May I know if this Fibonacci generated based on the premarket activity as well? Is there anyway to generate Fibonacci based on the market open and close (9.30am - 4pm)? Thanks

Wondering if i can change the color of the Fib lines myself to something else or will that make the script non-working?
If so, can i use the color codes from this thread and simply change the "color.red" codes for each Fib line?

Love this script btw!

@zeek Yes, is that simple. It would be better if code made it possible to change colors in the study's settings.

Hi, I added it to studies and I get lines that go across the entire chart without any labeling. I tried to edit by clicking on edit studies and checked no for both on expansion and extend to the left and it had no effect.Is there something I don't know? Thanks

@soary Please share a screenshot of your chart. If you don't know how to post a screenshot, see this post.
It looks like it took awhile for TOS to adjust because now it shows good, but now the problem is that zero is the high and 100 is the low and I would like it to be like in your picture with 100 as the high and zero as the low. How do I change it? Thanks

Is anyone using auto fibs to tell me how to get it like in the pic on here with 100 as the high and zero as the low. How do I change it because I copied and pasted the code as it is on here and right now it shows 100 as the low and 0 as the high. `I am not a programmer and only know a little thinkscript so you will need to write out the code for the response for me to copy and paste or give good explicit instructions for me to follow. Thanks

@soary Please learn how fibs work. If drawn from a high to a low as above the low is 0 and high is 100. So as price moves back up from the 0 low point it will give you the % lines as it moves up. Going all the way up to the previous high point would then be a 100% retrace.
If drawn from a low to a high it is reversed. Now the high is 0 and the low is 100. Price is expected to retrace down to 100% start.

horserider, thanks for your help but you should not always assume that the problem is not knowing how to use the instrument. I've been using fibs for years but tired of drawing them and really apreciate getting the script. Explaining how they work as an automated instrument would have sufficed. I thought I would need a different script for bear and another for bull trend, but the script works better than what I thought because it sounds like what you are saying is that the fibs change automatically by themselves when the chart trend changes from bear to bull and vice-versa.

@soary My apologies. Sounds like you understand the study now.
