Fractals are fascinating. Prepare to have your mind blown.
Price action is SIMPLY fractal recurrence, its an inescapable truth. To better understand this let’s take a step out of the trading world and into nature and mathematics. Here are three examples of fractals:

See this picture? Its called Romanesco broccoli.

Bloody marvellous looking specimen isn't it? Doesn't look real does it? That entire head of broccoli is made up of smaller heads with exactly the same shape. No matter where you zoom in, that shape is repeated. Its a mathematical marvel piece which adheres to the rules od the Fibonacci spiral.

Here is another example. You see this picture of a fern?

Its not actually a real fern leaf. Its an image that is created by simply following a mathematical formula. All of its information is stored in a few lines of probability.

Last example. Sierpinski triangle. Incredibly, this shape can be created by simply throwing dice and plotting the coordinates on paper.

If a fractal has awareness at some level then it is doomed to repeat its existence for eternity never able to escape beyond the laws of its universe. Kinda sounds like our experience as humans doesnt it? Music can never escape the strings of the Lyre (love that one )

Holy crapamoly isn’t this a most mind boggling concept to ponder? Everything is a fractal recurrence, a larger version of something smaller and simply the middle of something much larger.....think about the trillions of planets that make up all those galaxies in the observable universe and then marvel at the similarity to all those little atoms that you are composed of.

(wiping tears from my face)

So yeah. Fractals are forms that can be replicated using the appropriate mathematical formula. When you look at a price action chart without knowing the time period, it is almost impossible to tell at which point in the fractal you are observing. Could be a 1 second, 1 minute, 1 hour, 1 day chart. The only difference being the speed at which the fractal is created.

Enjoy what remains of your weekend!
