You asked about how to apply fractals in trading. (I'm really not clear how to do it), but if I think of fractals as repetitive patterns, well I know for sure those exist. One interesting thing is that when you see an image done with an equation which creates a fractal pattern, it is free to move in all directions left, right, up, down (and combinations thereof).

Price charts are constrained without any left motion. That is they can't move back in time (to the left), One could of course do it - it you had the programming skills (- that I don't have). It's only when the pattern overlays on itself that easily spotting the fractals (should they be there) could be done.

But there may be easier ways to find patterns to trade.

Keep your mind in the future, in the now.
