I suddenly realized that BTC/USD index (while being unbounded to anything, yet liquid) in times of high volatility turns itself into something really beautiful and well-structured. Stochastic movements of unstable market spontaneously organize itself into highly structured fractal-like function filled with axes of symmetries, much similar to Weierstrass function. Such movements can be easily observed in the last week, as well as in many moments of whole 2017. Other way it can be proven is by changing candlesticks timescale and still observing same patterns over different scales, which all combined will form Weierstrass-like fractal function.
Here is an illustration for the most recent BTC/USD 'Weierstrass-like' movement:
So, I've come up with plenty of questions related:
- Is it really some kind of well-known market movement? If so, any articles/books/papers to read on this topic?
- What's the main cause of it?
- Can it be observed outside of cryptocurrency market?
- Is this tendency somehow exploitable by specific trading strategy?
