13 March 06 Idealized Fractal Growth and Decay  From the Economic Fractalist Home Page: "The ideal growth fractal time sequence is X, 2.5X, 2X and 1.51.6X. The first two cycles include a saturation transitional point and decay process in the terminal portion of the cycles. A sudden nonlinear drop in the last 0.5x time period of the 2.5X is the hallmark of a second cycle and characterizes this most recognizable cycle. After the nonlinear gap drop, the third cycle begins. This means that the second cycle can last anywhere in length from 2x to 2.5x. The third cycle 2X is primarily a growth cycle with a lower saturation point and decay process followed by a higher saturation point. The last 1.51.6X cycle is primarily a decay cycle interrupted with a mid area growth period." By fractal analysis the March 2000 secondary equity growth is concluded. Contained within the composite Wilshire's daily valuations since its reversal low day in October 2005 is both the ideal X, 2.5X, 2X, 1.5X sequence and a smaller echo x/2.5x/2x/1.5x ideal fractal sequence. This again is worth a look at BIG CHARTS to 'do the count.' It is hypothesised that this fractal pattern is mathematically the most efficient growth scenario and application of available wealth. In fractal analysis, the last unit of valuation time in a fractal subunit is counted as the first unit of the subsequent subfractal. Additionally if a ending or initiating unit starts from a low and goes to a high it is doubled counted. With that prelude, a look at the Wilshire dating from its reversal day low illustrates the final perfect fractal sequence: 1227 October = X = 12 days 27October 8 December = 2.5X = 30 days with a minutely nonlinear gap lower on day 30 or December 8 8 December  12 January = 2X = 24 days 12 January  7 February = 1.5 X = 18 days... Now look at the word description contained in the first paragraph in relation to the evolution of the individual three growth and one decay fractals. The finale echo fractal occurs from: 710/13 February for 4.6 days = x 10/13 28 February for 11 days =2.5x (the nonlinear lower gap is seen on day 11 on the minute charts) and 28 February  13 March = 2x or about 9.2 days with a reversal on day 10; 1.5 x would be 7 more days matching the 56 days remaining by the previous fractal analysis.
