The general consensus is that theoretical fractals are infinitely self-similar, iterated, and detailed mathematical constructs having fractal dimensions, of which many examples have been formulated and studied in great depth.[3][4][5] Fractals are not limited to geometric patterns, but can also describe processes in time.[2][6][17][18][19][20] Fractal patterns with various degrees of self-similarity have been rendered or studied in images, structures and sounds[21] and found in nature,[22][23][24][25][26] technology,[27][28][29][30] art,[31][32] architecture [33] and law.[34] Fractals are of particular relevance in the field of chaos theory, since the graphs of most chaotic processes are fractal.[35]

I watched an interesting video on Chaos theory the other night.
In the brief mention of markets they mentioned them as example of chaos and therefore (to them) unpredictable. But you see the contraction of this superficial and spurious conclusion

" most chaotic processes are fractal."

Keep your mind in the future, in the now.
