Indicator Description

Check out our Indicator Spotlight post on the Camarailla Pivots (with video) for an in depth discussion on how to apply them in a trading setup.

The main Weekly Camarilla Pivot is last week’s close and the input for the camarilla support / resistance  formulas is based on the previous session’s high, low, and close. The weekly Camarilla indicator levels are calculated as follows:

  • Range = High – Low, for the time frame under consideration.
  • R1, R2, R3, R4, R5 – Resistance levels
  • S1, S2, S3, S4, S5 – Support levels
  • R5 = (High / Low) * Close
  • R4 = Close + Range * (1.1)/2
  • R3 = Close + Range * (1.1)/4
  • R2 = Close + Range * (1.1)/6
  • R1 = Close + Range * (1.1)/12
  • S1 = Close – Range * (1.1)/12
  • S2 = Close – Range * (1.1)/6
  • S3 = Close – Range * (1.1)/4
  • S4 = Close – Range * (1.1)/2
  • S5 = (Close – (R5 – Close))

The resulting levels above and below the weekly Camarilla pivots establish areas of support and resistance.

To conclude, the weekly Camarilla indicator levels are simple and versatile support / resistance lines that can be used in both sideways and trending markets. Specifically, weekly Camarilla pivots can be used to indicate both reversal and breakout setups. Generally, the S3 and R3 levels can be used to initiate reversal trades, whereas the S4 and R4 levels signal breakout scenarios.

The idea is to wait for the prices to interact with the weekly Camarilla indicator levels, prior to considering setups. Finally, weekly Camarilla pivots may also be combined with other tools for technical analysis, i.e. trend filters and/or momentum oscillators.
