Pivot point Nothing But Support and Resistance Levels, Calculated based on the average price of High/Low/close of the previous periods.

It is turned around and reverses. 

It is a Leading Indicator not lagging Indicators Like RSI, SMA, or Bollinger Bands. And It is purely driven by price.

It is very important for day trading because we use daily’s pivot Points in our trading style.

There are many types of Pivot Points but most important is CPR (Central Pivot Range).

Before going to trade you must know CPR on your trading chart.

And CPR is a three-line combination.




It is the price area above the current price where prices stop for further upside or advances.

Calculating Resistance,

R1 = (PP ∗ 2) − Previous Low.

R2 = (PP) + (Previous High − Previous Low).

R3 = (Previous High + 2 ( PP – Previous Low).

Pivot Point = (Previous High + Previous Low + Previous Close)​ / 3.

It is the price area below the current price where prices decline for going further down or Stop and Reverse.

Calculating Support,

S1 = (PP ∗ 2) − Previous High.

S2 = (PP) − (Previous High − Previous Low).

S3 = (Previous Low – 2 (Previous High – PP).

You can use this Leading Indicator(CPR) on your chart by www.tradingview.com

Visit the above site then go to the chart option and then put CPR on your chart.

R3 = 1.3636
R2 = 1.3075
R1 = 1.2776
PP = 1.2514
S1 = 1.2215
S2 = 1.1953
