Pivot Points Indicator

Pivot Points are often used by professional traders as a predictive indicator of market movements. ActivTrades has developed this famous indicator for both MetaTrader 4 and MetaTrader 5 platforms, with 3 levels of Support and Resistance.



The lines displayed on the chart represent the Pivot Point (Orange) as well as Support and Resistance levels (Dark Blue, Maroon and Green). If the price is above the Pivot Point, the market is usually considered as bullish, whereas price below the Pivot Point is usually seen as a bearish market. Supports and resistances help determine potential reversals levels of the current market trend.


Pivot point (PP) = (High + Low + Close) / 3

Support and resistance levels are then calculated off the pivot point as follow:

First resistance (R1) = (2 x PP) – Low
First support (S1) = (2 x PP) – High

Second resistance (R2) = PP + (High – Low)
Second support (S2) = PP – (High – Low)

Third resistance (R3) = High + 2(PP – Low)
Third support (S3) = Low – 2(High – PP)
