Fibonacci, Fractals and Financial Markets

Great vid that adds to the earlier post.

The Fibonacci sequence goes like this

1, 1, 2, 3, 5, 8, 13, 21, 34, 55, 89, 144, etc.

start with two single digits i.e. 1, 1,

then add them - 1, 1, this becomes 1, 1, 2,

1, 1, 2, becomes (adding the two last numbers) 1, 1, 2, 3,

1, 1, 2, 3, becomes (adding the two last numbers) 1, 1, 2, 3, 5,

It's really that simple, it should be a basic requirement at primary school to know this. It's that simple yet profound. If your school does not teach you this then you will not be able to see the world in the eyes of nature.

Shame on the school system for not teaching it. Rant over.

Well not quite - how many children are not being taught the basics - yes folks this is really basic. It's implementation is a progression to higher knowledge.

It's nice to see the number 144 in there as it's 12 squared. 12 x 12 = 144.

If you really want to get a grasp of reality remember this sequence and you'll see it all around you. Open your mind.

DNA exhibits the PHI or Fibonacci sequence.

The Great Depression 2 will also follow this sequence with banks reportedly losing 35 - 50% of their value.

We have a downturn - but inflation will mute this effect and Joe Public will not know what's really happened.

Rant over now!!
