Market Algorithms Are Quite Common

...due to the fractal nature of financial markets. Fractals occur at all time scales and can appear similar to each other for a time. Eventually the similarities end. It is possible to see the current market resolve in a manner similar to 1929 (on a smaller scale), but I don't believe there are any instances in recorded history of a financial panic occurring during this time of year (they are almost exclusively autumn events). Fascinating chart though.
