What are Pivot Points?
In the Forex market, the pivot point is the main central price level which can show the market trend and direction along with the projected support/resistance levels.
The pivot point is found using the average of high, low, and closing prices compared to the previous trading day or session.
We can use the calculated Pivot point and data to project the support and resistance levels in the future, which can be used to anticipate the price movement around these pivot points support and resistance.
Also, it is generally believed that if the price is trading above the pivot point, it indicates a bullish sentiment, while trading below the pivot point indicates a bearish sentiment.
How to Calculate Pivot Points
To calculate the pivot levels, we use the data points such as the previous day's high, low, and close price. Similarly, we can replace the daily with weekly or monthly data to estimate the pivot levels on other time frames.
Pivot Points Formula
- P = (H + L + C) / 3
- R1 = P + (P − L) = 2×P − L
- S1 = P − (H − P) = 2×P − H
- R2 = P + (H − L)
- S2 = P − (H − L)
- R3 = H + 2×(P − L) = R1 + (H − L)
- S3 = L − 2×(H − P) = S1 − (H − L)
P = Pivot, H = High, L = Low, C = Close
R = Resistance
S = Support

Pivot Points Trading Strategies
Typically, a trader can go long when the price touches the support level and short when it touches the resistance level.
However, this commonly used strategy is dangerous during strong trending markets. Therefore, it's always best to identify the trend direction first using the moving averages.
The pivot levels can be used in a more meaningful way. If the price is below the central pivot level, the market is expected to go south and go north if the price is above the pivot level.
Any indicator or methodology cannot exist without its pitfalls. For example, pivot levels sometimes may fail you as a trader. Still, using them as a guiding compass within your trading strategy is always best.

The pivot level indicator is the best out there. Tried a lot of pivot indicators but this stands out. Thanks so much.
One thing I would add is for the indicator to be more like a zone and not just a line. A straddle zone with the option of selecting the no of pips zone for the pivot.
