Leonardo Bonacci was an Italian mathematician who invented the number theory that is used nowadays in many different areas. It is known as the Fibonacci sequence and it shall also apply in trading. Today we are going to discuss the Fibonacci Fan lines which are constructed on the base of the Fibonacci retracement points.
The Fibonacci Fan lines can be seen as rising or falling and depending on the direction, they can be used to determine the support or resistance level. Having those, you can predict a possible reversal of the trend.
How to draw the Fibonacci Fan on the Olymp Trade platform
Identify the trough and the peak on your price chart. Draw a ray that connects these two.
Add the Fibonacci Retracements tool. You will see horizontal lines at certain Fibonacci levels.
Now, you can draw a rising fan. Each line will have its beginning at the trough. The secondary points will be based on the Fibonacci retracement levels.
With the Fibonacci Fan, you can recognise the potential support. It will extend together with the Fibonacci Fan lines so it is dynamic support.
Olymp Trade provides a ready to use Fibonacci Fan tool. Just click on the indicators icon and find it on the list. It will be automatically drawn on your chart after you establish 2 points on the chart.
The raising Fibonacci Fan will be drawn from the trough to peak because you need two points to trace a line. Fibonacci Fan tool at Olymp Trade will do the rest. It will draw all the important lines on your chart. Those lines can act as dynamic price support. You don’t really need to look at the numbers attached to those lines. You just need to observe if the price reacted with one of them. Then it is highly possible that it will react again, recharging the trend.
The falling Fibonacci Fan will be drawn from the peak. You need two points to trace a line. The first one you have already. It is the peak that you have identified on the chart. The second point will be a through. With the use of falling Fibonacci Fan, you can spot a line that can act as dynamic resistance for the price movement during a downtrend.
Pros and Cons of Using Fibonacci Fan Lines
Let’s explore the advantages and disadvantages of incorporating Fibonacci Fan lines into your trading strategy:
- Helps identify potential support and resistance levels for more accurate trading decisions.
- Simplifies the process of drawing the fan on the chart with the built-in tool on platforms like Olymp Trade.
- Provides visual representation of dynamic price levels, aiding in trend analysis.
- Relies on the assumption that Fibonacci retracement levels accurately represent market behavior.
- May generate false signals or incorrect predictions if used in isolation without additional confirmation tools.
- Requires continuous practice and learning to effectively interpret and apply Fibonacci Fan lines.

Fibonacci’s sequence is widely used in many fields. There exist the Fibonacci retracement lines tool on the Olymp Trade platform. There is also the Fibonacci Fan feature, which will simplify the process of drawing the fan on the chart.
With the help of the Fibonacci Fan, you can identify the potential support and resistance levels and then, points of reversals.
However, it might be a good idea to use an extra tool to confirm your predictions. The price will sometimes move through the lines, and with additional measures, you may be able to avoid bad decisions.
I encourage you to practice drawing and reading the Fibonacci Fan on the Olymp Trade demo account. It is credited with virtual cash so you will not experience loss of your money there. Have you ever traded with the Fibonacci Fan?
Wish you high earnings!
Q&A: Using Fibonacci Fan Lines in Trading
- How can Fibonacci Fan lines help in trading?
- Fibonacci Fan lines help identify potential support and resistance levels, aiding in trend analysis and decision-making.
- Should I rely solely on Fibonacci Fan lines for trading decisions?
- No, it’s recommended to use additional confirmation tools and measures to avoid relying solely on Fibonacci Fan lines, as they may generate false signals.
