Indicator Description

Check out our Indicator Spotlight post on how to apply Camarailla Pivots  in ranging and trending trading setups (with video). 

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

  • Range = High – Low, for the prior month
  • 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 monthly Camarilla Pivots establish areas of support and resistance.

To conclude, the monthly Camarilla Pivot Point indicator is a simple and versatile support / resistance tool that can be used in both sideways and trending markets. Specifically, one may use the levels 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 Pivots, 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.
