Rolling Pivots Daily

rolling daily pivot

The rolling daily pivot was suggested as a trend filter by Mark B. Fisher in his book The Logical Trader. By taking the highest high, lowest low of the past N-days and the close/settlement of the current regular session, we arrive at the rolling pivot levels.

Indicator Description

If the market trades above the rolling daily pivot, we’re in an uptrend, if it’s below, we’re in a downtrend. The ideal trade entry will be in the direction of the major trend when the market retraces towards the daily rolling pivots value area, typically represented by a 3 day rolling pivot range, i.e. the Directional Pivot (DP), Central Pivot (CP) and the Main Pivot (PP).

The Rolling Pivots Daily indicator should be used in combination with other tools for technical analysis, such as a trend bias, momentum oscillators, support / resistance and volume indicators. For trend analysis you may review the ADX, Heikin Ashi, MA Cross, or the Rainbow Filter. Library momentum oscillators include among others the Acceleration Deceleration, Awesome Oscillator, LBR 3/10 Oscillator, Slow RSI or the TDI. The Indicator Spotlight newsletter reviewed the TDI indicator here. For volume analysis you may review Better Volume, Force Index or the Relative Volume indicator.
