Fractals is an indicator that allows you to detect the bottom or top of the price chart. An up fractal is technically described as a series of at least five consecutive bars, with two lower highs just before and right after the highest high. The opposite configuration, a series of five bars with two bars with higher lows before and right after the lowest low, corresponds to a down fractal.
