This Fibonacci indicator was inspired by a day trader on Twitter (@pierhk). He traces his fibs "the unconventional way" by connecting the close of the previous day with the close of the first opening bar from the current trading day. He often does it on the 5m timeframe to find resistance and use it as profit target.

Before using this indicator, I recommend checking out some educational videos created by @pierhk to help you understand his thought process when tracing the Fibonacci extension 1.272.
