The world of Fibonacci
Next, let us discuss ‘Fibonacci Fans’

Like other Fibonacci tools, Fibonacci Fans are drawn from the swing low to swing high. The same Fibonacci ratios of 38.2, 50 and 61.8% retracement trend lines are placed on the chart. These trend lines can be then used to find support and resistance areas depending upon the trend.
Fan lines drawn by the indicator indicate “zones” where support or resistance is likely to occur.
In order to draw a Fibonacci fan for a stock in uptrend we need to connect the swing low with the swing high. Fibonacci fans get plotted on the chart showing possible areas of support.
