Can you develop an indicator that automatically plots Fibonacci Fans? Similar to this?

Rich (BB code):
``````#hint: <b>Fibonacci Fan lines</b>
Fibonacci Fan lines are trend lines based on Fibonacci retracement points. Rising fan lines extend up from a trough and pass through retracement based on the advance (lowest low to highest high or on the falling fan lines: highest high to lowest low). These fan lines can then be used to estimate support levels or potential reversal zones. Falling fan lines can then be used to estimate resistance levels or potential reversal zones.

#hint Price: Price used in the alerts on crossing of the fans. <b>(Default is Close)</b>

#hint onExpansion: Determines if the fan lines are projected past the current bar into the right side expansion <b>(Default is Yes)</b>

#hint Coefficient1: Fan Line 1: Trough to 38.2% retracement on rising fans.
Peak to 38.2% Coefficient on falling fans. <b>(Default is 38.2%)</b>

#hint Coefficient_2: Fan Line 2:
Trough to 50% retracement on rising fans.
Peak to 50% Coefficient on falling fans. <b>(Default is 50%)</b>

#hint Coefficient_3: Fan Line 3:
Trough to 61.8% retracement on rising fans.
Peak to 61.8% Coefficient on falling fans. <b>(Default is 61.8%)</b>

@BenTen I've been looking for a Fib Fan study to see how it compares to the one that I found elsewhere...I tried to use this code but a bunch of invalid statements appear in various places of the code and I don't know how to fix it...Here is the version that I found if it helps...Looking for something where I can change the colors of the lines so that I know what is what...and also a possible day selection to see how far back to look for the H/L...

@mc01439 I see...thank you! I guess then it turns out that BenTen's code is the same as the one I already had once you fixed the errors...By any chance do you know IF things can be added to this code such as a look back of X amount of days to determine the High's and Lows? I do believe that currently its about 9 to 10 days back that the Fib Fan starts to plot...Would like to see something 5 days or sooner...perhaps even previous day or premarket...
