Indicator Description

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

The use of Weekly Pivot Points is a well known trading technique. It was originally used by market makers and 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 Weekly Pivot Points display GLOBEX (ETH) levels, calculated from the high, low and close of the past full session. To display floor pivots (high, low and close from the regular session), please refer to the premium Session Pivots package.

You should only use the indicator with trading times that reflect the contractual settings of the instruments. If your data provider supplies the settlement price for futures, you may select that option instead of the regular close.

One may use the Weekly Pivot Points indicator to display the main-, central- 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.
