About Us

A Name You Can Trust

Fractal Finance ™ is a division of Quant Trade dedicated to researching, developing, and trading nonlinear technologies. After countless disappointments with linear trading methods, we went in pursuit of a tool that can measure markets in a nonlinear fashion. Early in Quant Trade's history, we were introduced to Benoit Mandelbrot and his theories on fractals. Not only did Mandelbrot devise these theories, but he also proved their effectiveness in the cotton futures markets. This was enough evidence for us that nonlinear tools are the way to go for trading.
