Pivot Points

Pivot Point analysis is a technique of determining key levels that price may react to. Pivot points tend to function as support or resistance and can be turning points. This technique is commonly used by day traders, though the concepts are valid on various timeframes. There are several methods of identifying the exact points. Common types of pivot points are Traditional, Fibonacci, Woodie, Classic, Camarilla and DeMark and each type has its own calculation method.

Most use a variation of significant prices such as established highs, lows, opening and closing prices and then apply a calculation to determine these points. They all calculate additional support and resistance levels alongside the pivot points. They can be used to determine when to enter or exit trades or to determine the range of a market. Conservative traders look for additional confirmation before entering a trade. Whether pivot points are used alone or in combination with other techniques, they are a useful tool in a technical trader's toolbox.

trending day 21st July

I can only apologise for yesterday's mess. ECB and a weak GBP and USD due to eco data. Not much of a opening spike to trade today. Likely low volatility because Friday and due to the move yesterday. 5min bar break up was risky due to the size and the overbought nature. 1hour down is likely so I've drawn it in.

Not much of an opening spike. 5min bar break up worked. We are very overbought so I'm ignoring the 1h break up we've had. shorting back towards the LR line.

GBP has broken support at the Weekly Pivot Point and proceeded to a 127.2% extension. I'm looking for a pullback into previous support turned resistance to short down to the Weekly S1 at 1.29000 Here is a better pic without indicators:

EURUSD is flirting with the top of the "no-fly zone" and has put in a top just shy of the Monthly M4, the predicted high for the month. Price rejected the 1.15800 level, or 20 pips shy of the 1.16000 even handle which isn't a surprise, and has subsequently retraced back down to previous minor S&R together with dynamic support found in the 1HR ...

Not much of a spike at open but selling on the 5min bar break for the 8-8.05 range worked . Hourly bar break might be tricky because of the 8-9 range. The price immediately filled last night's gap. We have lower highs the last few days. Although my LR line is pointing upwards I think it will level out soon.

The market turned at 9am but didn't break the 8-9 range. It's unlikely so to do unless there's news. Otherwise we will drift back up to the linear average I've put under my chart in yellow. It's a very clear and safe way to place swing trades, even with quite a close stop. Reversing the opening spike didn't really profit anything but selling the 5min bar break ...

Had to wait till a bit after 9 to get our channel today. An extended move down for 50+ points cam in. Not sure why yet - I've been tuned out of the news for a while. Needless to say I have bought this oversell. There was a slow spike down this morn but it was an option. Selling the 5min bar breakout worked.

I have used pivot point analysis primarily combined with fib to notice a reversal that may take place. Price has lined up well with R2 and my weekly resistance which is also 0.5 fib resistance! Using the RSI, I have also seen that USD has been overbought which signals a reversal. I will now move down to the 1 hour chart to get pin point entry and ride this trade ...

I think that the there is an option to go long on this pair in the short term. It is failing to break the S1 pivot support level, I'm predicting a TP @ the pivot level. Further MACD analysis confirms this and indicates a trend reversal. Good luck!

Any pull backs to fib lines i'm shorting since the key level of 118.5 got rejected I feel that a down trend is in play as long price stays below 118.5 I would like to see how price reacts at 116 If it is violated further shorts will be taken to 115 then 114. Happy new year.
