A long black body is followed by three small body days, each fully contained within the range of the high and low of the first day. The fifth day closes at a new low. + + {{:​glossary:​fallingthreemethods.gif?​nolink&​}} + + ==== Falling Wedge ==== + A bullish pattern that begins wide at the top and contracts as prices move lower toward a resistance breakout. See our ChartSchool article on [[:​chart_analysis:​chart_patterns:​falling_wedge_reversal|Falling Wedge (Reversal)]]. + + ==== Fibonacci Numbers ==== + The Fibonacci number sequence (1,​2,​3,​5,​8,​13,​21,​34,​55,​89,​144,​… ) is constructed by adding the first two numbers to arrive at the third. The ratio of any number to the next number is 61.8 percent, which is a popular Fibonacci [[:​glossary_r#​retracement|retracement]] number. The inverse of 61.8 percent is 38.2 percent, also used as a Fibonacci retracement number. It is the ratio of the Fibonacci sequence that is important and valuable, not the actual numbers in the sequence. + + ==== Flag ==== + A continuation chart pattern that generally lasts less than three weeks and resembles a parallelogram that slopes against the prevailing trend. The flag represents a minor pause in a dynamic price trend. See our ChartSchool article on [[:​chart_analysis:​chart_patterns:​flag_pennant_continuation|Flag,​ Pennant (Continuation)]]. + + ==== Fundamental Analysis ==== + A method of market analysis that relies on economic supply and demand information as opposed to focusing on charts and market indicators (like [[:​glossary_t#​technical_analysis|technical analysis]]). See our ChartSchool article on [[:​overview:​fundamental_analysis|Fundamental Analysis]]. + + ==== Futures ==== + Futures contracts are forward contracts, meaning they represent a pledge to make a certain transaction at a future date. These exchange-traded contracts require the delivery of a commodity, bond, currency or stock index, at a specified price, on a specified future date.
