Thank you for starting this thread.

There is no such thing as a “fractal indicator.” While many platforms provide access to indicators with that name, rest assured not a single one of them is actually looking for a fractal pattern in data.

The word “fractal” has become a bit of a buzzword in recent years but nothing that identifies itself as an indicator or technical trading tool has any relation to fractals. In other words, just because they are called a fractal, does not mean they are actually identifying fractals.

Fractals in data are identified with electromagnetic theory, gauge theory and chaos theory. Fourier transforms are used to identify a pattern followed by wave/group velocity functions to determine the next Time duration of the pattern.

It is simply impossible to observe a bar chart and determine a fractal pattern.

We would be happy to post a few links to blog that discuss these topics, but this is our first post which prevents links from being used.

Welcome fractal2007,

I noticed you used "we" in your post. Can you please confirm whether you are part of a company involved in the trading business?
