# How to calculate actual dollar values from the fibonacci extension on Trading View

Can someone tell me how to calculate these fibonacci extension values?

For example, this extension is from 300.50 to 89.29.

Now, when I look at the .786 or .618 values, I figured you just multiply .786 or .618 times 300.50 to get those values, which according to the extension is 255.30 and 219.81.

But, if you multiply .786 x 300.50 you get 236.19 and 300.50 x .618 = 185.71.

Can someone tell me how to get those values calculated by the extension?

Thanks.

Fibonacci Retracements are created by first examining the distance between two points. In your chart there is a line between 89.29 and 300.5. The distance is solved for by subtracting the beginning point from the end point: `300.5 – 89.28 = 211.21`

The distance (211.21) is then multiplied by the Fibonacci Ratios of 23.6%, 38.2%, 61.8%

For example take the first one 23.6: `211.21 X .236 = 48.85`

Then you add back in your starting point, in this case 89.29: `48.85 + 89.29 = 139.14`

and so on for the other ratios

I rounded these numbers to two decimal places for simplicity if you plug in actual values in a spreadsheet you can match what trading view comes up with.

• When I look over your answer, I keep thinking to myself, why I didn't see that :) Anyways, thank you so much! Commented Dec 29, 2021 at 3:40
• Thanks I had to look at that chart for a few to see what they were doing. Commented Dec 29, 2021 at 16:25
