The publication "Technical Analysis of Stocks and Commodities" featured an article in March 2007 written by Radha Panini, which delved into the topic of estimating the fractal dimension of waveforms. The article's methodology drew inspiration from Carlos Sevcik's work titled "A Procedure to Estimate the Fractal Dimension of Waveforms."

In the context of trading and financial markets, the term "fractal graph dimension indicator" is not a standard or widely recognized term. You will not need to spend time drawing trend lines or analyzing intricate indicators, instead, you'll be able to identify significant trading opportunities by paying attention to the simple yet powerful breaking of recent high and low points.

The concept of fractal dimension is used to quantify the complexity and self-similarity of fractals, which are intricate mathematical patterns or structures that repeat at different scales. Fractals have non-integer dimensions, and the fractal dimension is a measure of how the number of details in a fractal grows as the observation scale changes. Fractal dimension indicators provide a way to characterize and analyze these complex geometric structures.

## How to Trade Using FGD?

The Fractal Graph Dimension (FGD) Indicator for cTrader functions by crossing the zero line in an upward direction for buy signals and a downward direction for sell signals. This approach indicates when to enter either a buy or sell position based on the signal line's crossing direction. Most traders find it remarkably straightforward to work with this indicator as they only need to observe the signal line's position at any given time to identify potential trade signals. When no new cross occurs, the trader patiently waits for the next cross, which will dictate the trade direction depending on whether it crosses the zero line upwards or downwards.
