And immediately, we have some further revelation, that just below 18.00, (17.97 to be precise) is also a Fibonacci retracement level, in this case the 78.6% level.
Third reason, using a Fibonacci extension on a shorter swing high to swing low (17.37 to 16.38), to ascertain potential take profit zones, gives us yet another important Fibonacci level – this time the 161.8% extension. Once again – price stopped at exactly at this point, as can be seen below:
