What Is a Pivot Point?
Pivot Points are significant support and resistance levels that can be used to determine potential trades. The pivot points come as a technical analysis indicator calculated using a financial instrument’s high, low and close value.
A pivot point and the associated support and resistance levels are often turning points for the direction of price movement in a market. In an up-trending market, the pivot point and the resistance levels may represent a ceiling level in the price above which the uptrend is no longer sustainable and a reversal may occur. In a declining market, a pivot point and the support levels may represent a low price level of stability or resistance to further decline.
The main pivot point (PP) is the central pivots based on which all other pivot levels are calculated. The math behind the central Pivot Points is quite simple; we add the yesterday’s high, low and close and then divide that by 3, which is a simple average of the high, low and close.
