Indicator Description

A Spotlight post on the Camarailla Pivots  discusses how to use the indicator in ranging and trending trading scenarios (with video). 

The main N-Monthly Camarilla Pivot is the close of the chosen N-month period and the input for the camarilla support / resistance  formulas is based on the previous session’s high, low, and close. The N-Monthly Camarilla levels are calculated as follows:

  • Range = High – Low, for the N-Monthly time frame
  • 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 N-Monthly Camarilla Levels establish areas of support and resistance.

To conclude, Camarilla levels are simple and versatile support / resistance areas that can be used in both sideways and trending markets. Specifically, the levels 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 Camarilla levels, prior to considering setups. Furthermore, these support / resistance levels may also be combined with other tools for technical analysis, i.e. trend filters and/or momentum oscillators.
