The indicator automatically draws important Pivot Levels in the MT4 terminal using the most popular approaches: Classical, Camarilla, Woodie and Fibonacci.

It's probably one of the best Pivot indicators for MT4. Also, it is absolutely free and available for download without registration.

Usage of Pivot Points

The very essence of trading with Pivot Points is based on the idea that the price tends to reach yesterday's close point much more often than to overcome the previous day range. That's why the most popular calculation period for Pivot Points is Daily.

In that context, all Pivot levels play the role of support and resistance.

Pivot Points Strategies

While analyzing the chart, we can see multiple price interactions with these levels.

Also, one of the advantages of the Pivot indicator is its popularity, as the more traders use the same tool, the more likely the price will interact with it.

Draw methods and Formulas

For calculating levels, HIGH (H), LOW (L) and CLOSE (C) data for the previous period are used, usually, it is a day, week, month or hour.

While calculating Pivots the concept of RANGE (R) is also used. Its value is determined by the formula: H – L.

PP – Pivot Point;
S1-S4 – Support levels;
R1-R4 – Resistance levels.

You should also consider the differences between the Forex market and the Stock market.

Initially, Pivot levels were used in the stock market, where the previous day's closing price is very important and significantly affects the traders' behavior psychology during the next day. In contrast, Forex works around the clock, so the end of the trading day coincides with the beginning of the next one.

Classic (Floor)

The most common method of calculating Pivot Points. The main (blue) line here plays the role of a key support/resistance level.

PP = (H + L + C) / 3
R1 = (2 * PP) – L
R2 = PP + RANGE
R3 = PP + RANGE * 2
R4 = PP + RANGE * 3
S1 = (2 * PP) – H
S2 = PP – RANGE
S3 = PP – RANGE * 2
S4 = PP – RANGE * 3

Camarilla

Camarilla levels are located much closer to the current price, therefore, interactions with them occur much more often. This technique is suitable for those who perform short-term trades.

R1 = C + RANGE * 1.1 / 12
R2 = C + RANGE * 1.1 / 6
R3 = C + RANGE * 1.1 / 4
R4 = C + RANGE * 1.1 / 2
S1 = C – RANGE * 1.1 / 12
S2 = C – RANGE * 1.1 / 6
S3 = C – RANGE * 1.1 / 4
S4 = C – RANGE * 1.1 / 2
PP = (S1 + R1) / 2

Woodie

This technique is similar to the classical one, but more attention is given to the closing price of the period while calculating the basic PP line.

PP = (H + L + (C * 2)) / 4
R1 = (2 * PP) – L
R2 = PP + RANGE
R3 = R1 + RANGE)
R4 = R3 + RANGE
S1 = (2 * PP) – H
S2 = PP – RANGE
S3 = S1 – RANGE
S4 = S3 – RANGE

Fibonacci

The theory of Fibonacci numbers is commonly used in the Forex market. Pivot Points is not an exception. According to this method, the levels of resistance and support are determined by multiplying the range (R) to the corresponding Fibonacci numbers.

PP = (H + L + C) / 3
R1 = PP + (R x 0.382)
R2 = PP + (R x 0.618)
R3 = PP + (R x 1.000)
R4 = PP + (R x 1.618)
S1 = PP – (R x 0.382)
S2 = PP – (R x 0.618)
S3 = PP – (R x 1.000)
S4 = PP + (R x 1.618)

Which of these Pivot Points calculation methods is the best? There is no best or worst method. In fact, each of them can work, and you should make a choice based on your beliefs in trading.
