Pivots Monthly

Monthly Pivots

Monthly pivots are calculated from the high, low and close of the previous month’s session. Our Indicator Library also features Hourly Pivot levels, Daily Pivot Levels, Weekly Pivot levels and N-Montly Pivot levels. The Library Pivot versions can be compared to our Premium Pivot package here.

Indicator Description

The information required for calculating the Monthly Pivots (high, low and close of the previous month’s session), is available prior to the start of the current month session and does not change throughout its course.

The Monthly Pivots are based on a well known trading technique originally used by local pit traders to calculate intraday support and resistance points. The technique has been around for decades, and because of its simplicity and efficiency, it is still in use today. The Monthly Pivots display GLOBEX (ETH) pivots, calculated from the high, low and close of the past week’s full session. If you want to display floor pivots (high, low and close of the past month’s regular session), please refer to the premium Session Pivots package.

The indicators should only be used with trading times that reflect the contractual settings of the instruments. In the event that your data provider supplies the settlement price for futures, the indicators have an option to use the settlement price instead of the regular close.

The Monthly Pivot indicator is used to display the main pivot as well as the central pivot and directional pivot, in addition to 4 major support and resistance levels. The indicator also comes with an option to display mid-levels pivots. Furthermore, you may choose between four (4) different formulas, namely Floor Pivots, Wide Pivots, Jackson Zones and Fibonacci Pivots.
