I read somewhere that you have to use High low, well the close chart ive drawn clearly demonstrates otherwise Attached Thumbnails

It will identify and plot all the possible retracements and sometimes multiples retracements will appear on a single pivot point. I have a problem believing you can trust them all the time BUT Bill McCready found a clever way to use them. If you are in a position, and suddenly a pesavento pattern is printed on your chart you get the hell out. If you are looking to enter the market and suddenly a pesavento pattern is printed on your chart, you start looking for clues in the price action, supp/res, and other indicators to decide what will be the next best possible entry. The way I have seen people using it is by anticipation the market "should turn" sometimes it will work remarkably well but more often that not you're screwed. SO this approach as a warning to get out and a warning to start looking for strong evidence to enter the market makes sense to me.

I find the market often respects them and they can be used to pick places to potentially get in and are especially good for picking places to get out, or to trail a stop. For example, if I was wanting to stay in a trend, and move my stop up, I would use fibs. They are also good for getting a idea of how strong a trend may be, if there is a shallow retrace, this implies a strong trend, so if price can only go back to the 38fib it is likely we will see it be stronger. The psychology behind this is pretty simple, if price can not retrace far, it is showing that people are eager to snap up the lower price (in a up trend - vice versa in a down trend) and this indicates investor sentiment is still strongly bullish (again, in a up trend) I think it is better to use them from the 1h + charts (though they do work on smaller charts) Some people do it from the extreme high/low (shadows) but I like to use them from the high/low close.
