# Steemit Crypto Academy | Course By @stream4u - Technical Indicator: Pivot Points.

This Thumbnail Created From snappa.com

Hello All,

Welcome to Steemit Crypto Academy Season 2, My self @stream4u, I am from India, and one of your crypto professors welcomes you all to my class.

Hope you really enjoyed the last lecture that is Reverse Strategy. Just after our last course many of you have seen the Bullish Reverse Strategy and it worked very well, for example, we can see the SBD chart.

Example Of Bullish Reverse Strategy.

Now, In this week, we will learn one technical indicator that is Pivot Points. This indicator is one of the great that helps us to identify the market trend.

I am using this indicator since 2018. Initially, I use this indicator in Indian Stock Market. When I come into Commodity, Forex and Crypto then I started to use it in these markets when I do Intraday trading.

This indicator helps very well but we have to be very sharp and keep our eyes on a chart because the pivot points support and resistance levels at very strong and we should not miss the level to book profit or open a trade.

#### So let's begin our class.

NOTE: It will be good if you comment homework task link only if it is not reviewed within 24 hours after you published it.

Overview Of Pivot Points.

Pivot Points is a technical indicator and its analysis uses the previous period of High, Low, and close levels to identify the future High Level which is Resistance, and future Low Level which is Support.

The traders use the previous period of High, Low, close levels and calculate the possible Pivot Points on their current Trading Day.

Previously this can be done by manual work and checking each level, but now in an advanced system, we can apply this indicator direly on a chart, and it will show all Pivot Points.

There are formulas on which the Pivot Points get calculated, but as I said now in an advanced system we no need to do that mathematical calculation and we can directly apply it on our chart, but still, as a part of learning, we will understand what the calculation is for Pivot Points.

The Levels Of Pivot Points.

As I said the Pivot Points are calculated as per the high, low, and close levels of the last trading session, so in this, we found below levels of Pivot Points on our Chart.

Pivot Levels
Details.
Main Pivot Level (PP)
This is the middle and main pivot point on the chart.
Support 1 (S1)
This is the first pivot level below the main pivot point.
Support 2 (S2)
This is the second pivot level below the main pivot point and below S1.
Support 3 (S3)
This is the third pivot level below the main pivot and below S2.
Resistance 1 (R1)
TThis is the first pivot level above the main pivot level.
Resistance 2 (R2)
This is the second pivot level above the main pivot point and above R1
Resistance 3 (R3)
This is the third pivot level above the main pivot point and above R2

Once you add the Pivot Points on your chart, you will see lines on your chart that represents the level of S1, S2, S3, R1, R2, R3, and the Main Pivot Level (PP), just like below.

Example Of Pivot Levels.

Now, just for the knowledge, we will see how these Pivot levels get calculated.

The Calculation Of Pivot Points.

Pivot Levels
Calculation.
Main Pivot Level (PP)
Daily High + Daily Low + Close / 3.
Support 1 (S1)
2 x Pivot Point – Daily High.
Support 2 (S2)
Pivot Point – Daily High – Daily Low.
Support 3 (S3)
Daily Low – 2 x Daily High – Pivot Point.
Resistance 1 (R1)
2 x Pivot Point – Daily Low.
Resistance 2 (R2)
Pivot Point + Daily High – Daily Low
Resistance 3 (R3)
Daily High + 2 x Pivot Point – Daily Low

The above is the basic calculation of Pivot Point Levels. Additionally, there are different kinds of pivot points available that are Fibonacci pivot points, Woodie’s pivot point, Demark Pivot Points, and Camarilla Pivot Points, I will leave these types of pivot points for your own study and research.

What Is The Meaning Of Pivot Points.

Main Pivot Level (PP):- The PP shows the Market direction. Price above PP will consider Bullish sign and Price Below PP will be considered as Bearish Sign.

Support 1 (S1):- The S1 represents the first level of support where it is possible that the price will move reverse and the market trend change to Bullish. This level is an oversold zone where buying may start. However, if this level break then more bearish is possible.

Support 2 (S2):- The S2 represents the second level of support where it is possible that the price will move reverse and the market trend change to Bullish. This level is an oversold zone where buying may start. However, if this level break then more bearish is possible.

Support 3 (S3):- The S3 represents the third level of support where it is possible that the price will move reverse and the market trend change to Bullish. This level is an oversold zone where buying may start. However, if this level break then more bearish is possible.

Resistance 1 (R1):- The R1 represents the first level of resistance where it is possible that the price will move reverse and the market trend change to bearish, this level is an overbought zone where selling may start. However, if this level breaks then more bullish possible.

Resistance 2 (R2):- The R2 represents the second level of resistance where it is possible that the price will move reverse and the market trend change to bearish, this level is an overbought zone where selling may start. However, if this level breaks then more bullish possible.

Resistance 3 (R3):- The R3 represents the third level of resistance where it is possible that the price will move reverse and the market trend change to bearish, this level is an overbought zone where selling may start. However, if this level breaks then more bullish possible.

How To Add Pivot Points On A Chart & It's Configuration.

As I used TradingView so I will be using the same platform to demonstrate how to add Pivot Points on a chart and how to configure it.

• This is our Candlestick Chart and then click to the fx that is Indicators and Strategies. (Shown by Arrow)

Step 1 To Add Pivot Points.

• Under Candlestick Pattern search for Pivot Points. There are many you will see, but select Pivot Points Standard. Once you select it, it will apply to your chart.

Step 2 To Add Pivot Points.

• After apply Pivot Points on a chart, it will look like this.

Step 3 To Add Pivot Points.

Configuration Of Pivot Points.

Under the Type, we can see there are a lot of options as mentioned above like Fibonacci pivot points, Woodie’s pivot point, Demark Pivot Points, and Camarilla Pivot Points, but we will keep as Traditional.

The timeFrame will be Auto.

The number of Pivot will be 15.

Under the style, you will see additional S4/R4, S5/R5 which we will uncheck as we will only use till S3/R3. You can give any color for your understanding, the most common color for R1, R2, R3 is RED because its represent resistance level, and Green or any color you can give for S1, S2, S3. In Trading View the color for S1 will also apply to the R1, similar to other levels too.

For the main Pivot Point, you can give the color Black.

To Trade with the Pivot Point, we need to understand that there will be two possiblity at each level of Pivot level.

When Price reaches the pivot lines it will act as Support OR Resistance OR Breakout.

As a part of trading whenever we open our position with Pivot point we should use Stoploss.

Now let see how the Pivot points help to understand the market trend.

Example 1:-

This is a 15-minute candlestick chart and covers 2 days trend.

As mentioned above The PP shows the Market direction. Price above PP will consider Bullish sign and Price Below PP will be considered as Bearish Sign., in the above image we can see the first market start above the main pivot level and remain up side, also continue the same for next day too.

We also see that the price comes towards the main pivot level from the up side and then reverses back and continues to the bullish trend. It was revered from the main pivot level which becomes the first level of support S1 for the next day.

We can also see on the next day chart that prices react to the R1 which is our first resistance level and prices come down from this level.

Here either you can open a trade when the price above the main pivot level OR you can wait to see if the price come toward the main pivot level, see how it react whether it gives breakout or become bullish, then accordingly open a trade and the stop loss will be S1 level.

Example 2:-

This is a 15-minute candlestick chart and covers 2 days trend.

In the above image, we can see that the Price was started below the main pivot point which already indicated us a bearish trend and remains the same for the next day too.

On the first day of the chart, there was a reverse trend see from the S2 but Pivot level act as resistance and the price does not give a breakout to the Pivot level hence trend remains bearish.

Here either you can open a short trade when the price below the main pivot level OR you can wait to see if the price come toward the main pivot level, see how it react whether it gives breakout or become bearish again, then accordingly open a short trade and the stop loss will be R1 level.

In the Pivot Point Reverse Trading, we will see how the price reacts at the level of R1, R2, R3, and S1, S2, S3.

Now, we will know that the R stands for Resistance and S is Support, we also know that the price goes down from the Resistance and price goes up from the Support.

Example 1:-

This is a 15-minute candlestick chart and covers 2 days trend.

In this example, I have tried to covered both Reverse Trading and shown how prices react at Pivot Resistance and Support.

On the first day, we can see that the price was above Privot level which indicates bullish but it does not mean it will now remain bullish.

As we know to trade with the Technical indicator we have to respect the charts and the given indicators. In the above image, the price was first above the Pivot level which indicates bullish but then the price was started going down from the R1 level. Atv R1 buyers can exit here to book the profit, and if want then opens a short trade at this level.

On the next day, we can see the price was below the pivot level which indicates a bearish trend but then it started going up from the S1. At S1 short trader can exit to book profit and if want then they can open a buy trade.

Last words on Pivot Point Indicator.

Pivot Point Indicator is one of the Strongest indicators that help us to identify the market trend. Pivot Point indicator can be used in a different time frame, we can also use this on 1-day Trading. However this indicator is mostly use by Intraday Traders to book profits.

When the Pivot point moving near the main Pivot Point level then it is a normal trend where we have to wait and not open any trade.

When Price started moving above or below the main Pivot Point then accordingly we will open buy or short trade and accordingly set a stop loss.

Hello prof. I set my Pivot chart but it is completely different from yours. In my chart market is trading out of all resistances, how to set up it? I am using Binance, in which exchange you did? Thanks!

As I said, I used TradingView so here also I use the same platform to demonstrate how to add Pivot Points on a chart and how to configure it.

In Binance you can follow the below step.

• Click on the technical indicator

• search for pivot and select Pivot Points Standard.

• After apply it will look like this.

Thank you prof, I will also use Trading View as I am unable to set up in Binance.

Hi dear professor @stream4u .My post for the previous week 7 is not checked and reviewed. I am very worried about it getting ignored.

Here is the link for my post.

Sir stream4u can you describe me the whole method of convrting steems into Pakistani currency step by step.... Thankyou

You will have to search for the Crypto Exchange which is based on Pakistan Currency that able to complete your KYC quickly and connect your bank account.

Let me tell you how I do.

Transfer STEEM to Crypto Exchange Binance

Then Transfer TRX to Crypto Exchange WazirX

Then Sell TRX on Crypto Exchange WazirX with INR.

Not sure if Crypto Exchange [WazirX] https://wazirx.com/invite/3yapn82g) supports Pakistan Currency.

@yousafharoonkhan may guide you correctly on this.

Thankyou sir for your kind information

Wao! Prof. @stream4u, Thanks for the lecture on pivot point i really appreciate your effort. I wish to be part of the assignment but my SP is not up to 150. Well am looking foreword in building it up. Please my question is; can this pivot point be used in an MT4 chart?
Thanks

I am not familiar with the MT4 so don't know much on it, but I guess @yohan2on can help you with this, I think he uses this same platform.
