The Stock Market and the Fibonacci Series

Human expectations occur in a ratio that approaches Phi

Changes in stock prices largely reflect human opinions, valuations and expectations.  A study by mathematical psychologist Vladimir Lefebvre demonstrated that humans exhibit positive and negative evaluations of the opinions they hold in a ratio that approaches phi, with 61.8% positive and 38.2% negative.

Phi and Fibonacci numbers are used to predict stocks

Phi, the Golden Mean and Fibonacci numbers have been used with great success to analyze and predict stock market moves.  Forbes ASAP recently featured a story on the work of scientist Stephen Wolfram in cellular automata (underlying rules that determine seemingly random phenomenon) stating "This seashell may hold the secret of stock market behavior, computers that think and the future of science."

Markets may be as geometrically perfect as a spider's web

Ermanometry Research shows the markets to be perfectly patterned, explaining that humans, being part of nature, create perfect geometric relationships in their behaviors, not unlike a spider spinning a geometrically perfect web with no conscious awareness of its amazing feat.  Ermanometry applies the logarithmic spirals found in sea shells with dynamic ratios in 3D to relate one market move to others.

Fibonacci numbers define the movements of stocks

Fibonacci numbers were used by W.D Gann and R.N. Elliott.  In Elliott Wave Theory theory, all major market moves are described by a five-wave series.  The classic Elliott Wave series consists of an initial wave up, a second wave down (often retracing 61.8% of the initial move up), then the third wave (usually the largest) up again, then another retracement, and finally the fifth wave, which would exhaust the movement. In addition, each of the major waves (1, 3, and 5) could themselves be separated into subwaves, and so on, and exhibit other Fibonacci relationships.

A sample stock price wave analysis could look something like this:

Elliott wave in stock prices and the Fibonacci series

Major, minor and sub waves are shown in RED, YELLOW and GREEN and the total number of increases and decreases (2, 5 or 8) is a Fibonacci number.  Note too that the predicted end result is based in the Fibonacci series as well as the end price is 61.8% of the high and 0.618  is equal 1/Ψ and 0.382 is 1/Ψ2.
