I am interested to plot a convergence result of the Fibonacci sequence, namely $\frac{F(n+1)}{F(n)}\rightarrow\phi$ as $n\rightarrow\infty$.

So far I have created the following plot:

So, I am wondering if there is a way to connect the points but at the same time the points being visible.

Thank you.

Also, my code is this:

ListPlot[Table[Fibonacci[n + 1]/Fibonacci[n], {n, 20}], PlotRange -> {{0, 22}, {0, 2.5}},
Ticks -> {{1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 10, 15, 20}, {GoldenRatio}}, 
AxesStyle -> Directive[Arrowheads[0.03]], PlotStyle -> Directive[Black], 
TicksStyle -> Directive[Red, 15]]

    $\begingroup$ Use ListLinePlot instead of ListPlot and add the option Mesh -> Full. $\endgroup$ – march Nov 10 '15 at 17:19

    $\begingroup$ The next time you're producing ratios of Fibonacci numbers: Ratios[Fibonacci[Range[20]]]. For extra fun, replace, Fibonacci[] with LucasL[]. $\endgroup$ – J. M. is away Nov 11 '15 at 3:05

A solution using Epilog:

ListLinePlot[
 t = Table[Fibonacci[n + 1]/Fibonacci[n], {n, 20}],
 PlotRange -> {{0, 22}, {0, 2.5}},
 Ticks -> {{1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 10, 15, 20}, {GoldenRatio}},
 AxesStyle -> Directive[Arrowheads[0.03]],
 PlotStyle -> Directive[Black],
 TicksStyle -> Directive[Red, 15],
 Epilog -> {PointSize[0.013], Point[Transpose[{Range[20], t}]]}]

Add the last two options

ListPlot[Table[Fibonacci[n + 1]/Fibonacci[n], {n, 20}],
 PlotRange -> {{0, 22}, {0, 2.5}},
 Ticks -> {{1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 10, 15, 20}, {GoldenRatio}},
 AxesStyle -> Directive[Arrowheads[0.03]],
 PlotStyle -> Directive[Black],
 TicksStyle -> Directive[Red, 15],
 Joined -> True,
 PlotMarkers -> Automatic]
