**Fibonacci Archer Box (ChartPrime)** is a full featured Fibonacci box indicator that automatically plots based on pivot points. This indicator plots retracement levels, time lines, fan lines, and angles. Each one of these features are fully customizable with the ability to disable individual features. A unique aspect to this implementation is the ability to set targets based on retracement levels and time zones. This is set to 0.618 by default but you can pick any Fibonacci zone you like. Also included are markings that show you when Fibonacci levels are met or exceeded. These moments are plotted on the chart as colored dots that can be enabled or disabled. Along with these markings are crosses that can be shown when targets are hit. Both of these markings are colored with the related Fibonacci level colors.

When there is a zig-zag, this indicator will test to see if the zig-zag meets the criteria set up by the user before plotting a new Fibonacci box. You can pick from either higher highs or lower highs for bearish patterns, and higher lows or lower lows for bullish patterns. Both patterns can be set to use both when finding new boxes if you want to make it more sensitive. You also have the option to filter based on minimum and maximum size. If the box isn't within the selected size range, it will simply be ignored. The pivot levels can be configured to use either candle wicks or candle bodies. By default this is configured to use candle wick with a lookforward of 5 and lookback of 10.

We have included alerts for Fibonacci level crosses, Fibonacci time crosses, and target hits. All alerts are found in the add alert section built into tradingview to make alert creation as easy as possible. Each alert is labeled with their correct names to make navigation simple.

W.D. Gann, a renowned figure in the world of trading and market analysis, is often questioned for his use of Fibonacci levels in his strategies. However, evidence points to the fact that Gann did not directly employ Fibonacci price levels in his work. Instead, Gann had his unique approach, dividing price ranges into thirds, eighths, and other fractions, which, although somewhat aligning with Fibonacci levels, are not exact matches. It is clear that Gann was familiar with Fibonacci and the golden ratio, as references to them appear in his recommended reading list and some of his writings. Despite this awareness, Gann chose not to incorporate Fibonacci levels explicitly in his methodologies, preferring instead to use his divisions of price and time. Notably, Gann's emphasis on the 50% level—a marker not associated with Fibonacci numbers—further illustrates his departure from Fibonacci usage. This level, despite its popularity among some Fibonacci enthusiasts, does not stem from Fibonacci's sequence. This is why we opted to call this indicator **Fibonacci Archer Box** instead of a *Gann Box* as we didn't feel like it was appropriate.

In summary, the **Fibonacci Archer Box (ChartPrime)** is a tool that incorporates Fibonacci retracements and projections with an automated pivot point-based plotting system. It allows for customization across various features including retracement levels, timelines, fan lines, and angles, and integrates visual cues for level crosses and target hits. While it acknowledges the methodologies of W.D. Gann, it distinctively utilizes Fibonacci techniques, providing a straightforward tool for market analysis. We hope you enjoy using this indicator as much as we enjoyed making it!
