Let’s take HWB first. HWB, remember, is not a real Fib level. As a ratio of 50 percent it doesn’t apply to the Fibonacci series at all, except when the third number in the series is divided by the fourth, a trivial anomaly in the context of an infinite series. Its use in standard Fibonacci retracements stems from something else entirely: it’s easy for humans to use. From time immemorial, from the days of Livermore and Wyckoff at the turn of the twentieth century, and most likely for many generations before that, traders have been using a 50 percent retracement as a good place to buy if going long or to sell if going short.
Beyond these two definitions are two additional terms that come into play when considering gaps: gap fill and half-gap fill. ” A half-gap fill occurs when a trade executes at a price halfway between today’s open and yesterday’s close. So, in the case of an ES open at 1,195 after a previous trading day’s close of 1,185, a trade at 1,185 would realize a gap fill; a trade at 1,190 would realize a half-gap fill. Typically, professional gaps do not fill; instead, price continues in the same direction away from the previous trading day’s close.
As applied to market trends, our analogy would define the object in motion as a trend and the external force as another trend in play on a longer time frame. In a typical scenario, this might entail an uptrend as seen on a daily chart coming into contact with a downtrend on a monthly chart. The external force of the monthly downtrend could be sufficient to slow down or even reverse the daily uptrend. Scenarios like this appear frequently in cases of countertrends in one direction operating within a dominant trend in the opposite direction as seen on a longer time frame.
