|The Fractals indicator was developed by Bill Williams to help analysts identify local price highs and lows. These extrema are called fractals and are indicated by arrows on the price chart above the bar or candlestick corresponding to this local extremum. According to the author, Fractals are one of the few technical analysis tools that really work. Each fractal can be used to identify support or resistance level. However, it is recommended to use additional filters to determine market entry points. The Fractals indicator available on the site is customizable so that you can specify the number of bars to the left and right of the peak bar. The default values of the indicator parameters are "2,2". In this case, the fractal will be formed by five bars: a peak bar, two bars on the left, and two on the right.
