Fractal

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.

The great thing about Crypto charts is they are fractal by nature, if you're a fan of Fractals there are no better charts than Crypto to trade your theory.

Looking at Factom we have a perfect Fractal trade coming up, lets see if ...

Technical accumulation @ key support & demand level Note: (Not waiting for bears to loose momentum since this is a long term position trade, as it's reinforced with fundamental analysis) Fundamentally analysis: 1) Probably (from my humble analysis) the only Crypto-asset that has a running sound product 2) Aimed at/for wide client base (B2B) 3) Fair & strict ...

All Eyes on Buttcoin

Have we been here before? I overlayed the fractal of the 2013-2014 peak to see if there was any resemblance and there is some. Looking at the RSI, we seem to have crouching bear and hidden bull, which is quite confusing. The RSI does seem to be in a downtrend though and so I wouldn't be surprised if we made some meaty retracements in the medium term. In the ...

88E 50DMA break & backtest / fractal

Extremely similar break above the 50DMA and backtest to the Jul-Sept 16 period where the price doubled. Exciting news period for the company approaching.

Simple overlay of price/action from Sep 2015. We shall see.

$GBPUSD Brexit fractal

Follow the pre-Brexit into current price/action gives you a little bit more recovery, say 1.30, and then another 15c crash as we hit hard Brexit before March 2017. Just a fractal - the fundamentals have to happen as well! This does NOT conflict with my short-term long post.

$XAUUSD ($GC_F $GLD) might be a buy here

Same time of year, fractal from last year overlaid. 38.2% fib is not great support, but a great RR if you believe it. Oversold as well.

$NZDUSD H&S completed, baseline to come

$NZDUSD has completed it's H&S. Mirror fractal of left shoulder to head suggests an eventual return to baseline (0.67) but back to 0.73 first. So the immediate swing trade is a long.

XAUUSD: $XAUUSD Fractal predicts limited action until NFP

$XAUUSD Fractal predicts limited action until NFP

I have overlaid the last two drops. Doesn't look like much action until NFP. Fractal suggests selling into NFP, which in turn suggests an NFP miss, which will break the USD / DJIA rise and the GOLD / EUR / JPY fade. If it misses, that is.

$EURUSD suggests bottom may not be in

To be honest, I don't think it will go further than the previous low of 1.0513, but the fractal predicts 1.04

Don't use these often, but this is the price/action of oil on the way down, mirrored

UK100*GBPUSD, 60 Long
Brexit to Trump fractal on $FTSE in USD

This fractal actually suggests that the FTSE (in USD) may have bottomed for now and may rise. You would have to synthesise it by buying FTSE selling GBPUSD, or you can use US ETF $EWU.
