Fractals are not only abundant in nature, they are also the building blocks of trends. They are simple yet important, repetitive formations, self-similar across different time frames and used by traders to identify or conform a trend (markets trend about 30% of the time) in order to trade it profitably. When broken apart, they exhibit the same characteristics as greater patterns or price movements. Fractals lag the market, because it takes time for them to form. They can include any number of bars, though the minimum is 5.

Fractals form the swing points of the market (creating fractal levels) and bearish fractals and bullish fractals are distinct. There are several trading strategies based on them, each with their own set of rules for entry and exit. Some traders use them to draw trend lines. Bill Williams uses fractals in his trading system and developed an indicator to identify them. Whether they are used alone or in combination with other techniques such as Fibonacci levels, Support & Resistance, or other indicators, fractals can be useful tools in a technical trader's toolbox.

Time to load up, bottom on Ethereum is approaching

Been using this fractal for a while, finally going to publish it. Both of these structure moves have ~70% retraces with Ethereum's being bigger. Historically Crypto doesn't do more than 80% on it's pumps and dumps before they bottom out. Even ripple, the king of the mega retrace, only does about 70% or so. Dash, 72% dump. etc. etc. What I like is how this is a ...

This chart that overlays an analysis (from wizsec) of how much hot/cold BTC Mt. Gox had in the years leading up to their closure, while they were in the process of having coins stolen. It shows that there was definitely an overlap in potential Mt. Gox theft activity, bot activity, and the mega bubble. At the bottom of the same ...

ETH/BTC: Months of pain then a big buying opportunity

In crypto, history tends to repeat itself. Trade plan: 1. Scale in starting at .06 down to .035 with 25% of my BTC. 2. Scale out at .5 - .55 3. Grow my BTC stash by 3-4x What makes this extended bear market plausible: ICOs cashing out It's happened before Potential decoupling from BTC after scaling impasse resolves

Dow April-May Fractal Update

Dow model spotted 20 days ago still running, now tracking early May. Lateral price action likely to continue till NFP, then price action won't be just data dependent due to looming elections in the UK and potentially other shockers from North Korea or Greece. If still spot on by mid June, chances of weakness would suggest 20700 retest then.

Given all the "smart" think-tanks and the vast majority expecting parity next year, probably the appeal of the opposite side of the trade doesn't need further analysis. Anyhow, the euro is tracking the fractal since 2012, as latest spike confirmed that the euro is also tracking December 2015 (posted already).
