Hello Chris,

This post of yours is very helpful.Thanks for the valuable info.Apart from this post I want to ask you one question. Which formula or method do you use to calculate pivot points? Is it different for different time frames?(1HR/4HR/1D only)

Thanks

Hello Amis,

In regards to your question – 1D for calculating pivots. They should be the same whether its 1D, 4h or 1h – should be the same for all time frames up to 1D, after that, it changes.

Hope this helps

Hello Chris,

Yeah that solved one of my doubts but you didn’t answered my other question regarding the method or formula you use to calculate PP.
If that is only for your course member then its absolutely fine.I hope you will check out this one “http://www.babypips.com/tools/forex-calculators/pivotpoint.php” and do let me know if its accurate.

Thanks

Hello Amis,

Sorry bout that.

Here is the calculations but your brokers charts should provide this as you will not want to have to do them daily which will be a pain in the \$%*)@\$*(

DP = (H + L + C) /3

s1 = DP – (H – DP);//S1
s2 = DP – (H – L); //S2
s3 = L – (H – L); //S3

r1 = DP + (DP – L); //R1
r2 = DP + (H – L); //R2
r3 = H + (H – L); //R3

Hope that helps

Kind Regards
Chris
