Calculate the Pivot levels of support and resistance

### Available for Forex, Crypto and Shares Markets

## Forex Pivot Points Calculator

Pivot points are a popular method for calculating potential levels of support and resistance. They show levels that are likely to reverse the price direction and are a tool of the short-term (intraday) trading.There are several methods for calculating the Pivot Points levels, the most widely used being Floor and Fibonacci.

Before we start, let’s set values to the respective fields:

✓ Open Price – 1.20000

✓ High Price – 1.40000

✓ Low Price – 0.90000

✓ Close Price – 1.00000

Calculations:

The Floor Pivot Points are calculated using the last trading session’s Open, High, Low, and Close. Since Forex is a 24-hour market, most traders use the New York closing time (21:00 GMT) as the previous day’s close.

First, we need to calculate the Central Pivot Point (PP):

Central Pivot Point (PP) = (High + Low + Close) / 3

or, in our example:

Central Pivot Point (PP) = (1.40000 + 0.90000 + 1.00000) / 3 = 1.10000

The PP can be helpful when analyzing the price action. If the quotes are above the central pivot, the market is considered Bullish. If the quotes are below the central pivot, it is rather Bearish.

After we’ve calculated the PP, we can use it as a reference to calculate the levels of support and resistance:

✓ First level of support and resistance:

Support 1 (S1) = (PP * 2) – High

Resistance 1 (R1) = (PP * 2) - Low

or:

Support 1 (S1) = (1.10000 * 2) – 1.40000 = 0.80000

Resistance 1 (R1) = (1.10000 * 2) - 0.90000 = 1.30000

✓ Second level of support and resistance:

Support 2 (S2) = PP - (High – Low)

Resistance 2 (R2) = PP + (High - Low)

or:

Support 2 (S2) = 1.10000 - (1.40000 – 0.90000) = 0.60000

Resistance 2 (R2) = 1.10000 + (1.40000 – 0.90000) = 1.60000

✓ Third level of support and resistance:

Support 3 (S3) = Low – 2 * (High – PP)

Resistance 3 (R3) = High + 2 * (PP – Low)

or:

Support 3 (S3) = 0.90000 – 2 * (1.40000 – 1.10000) = 0.30000

Resistance 3 (R3) = 1.40000 + 2 * (1.10000 – 0.90000) = 1.80000

There are also intermediate levels, or mini levels, that can further be calculated.

If you want to use the Fibonacci Pivot Points, the calculations are as follows:

First, we need to calculate the Central Pivot Point (PP):

Central Pivot Point (PP) = (High + Low + Close) / 3

or, for our example, this is:

Central Pivot Point (PP) = (1.40000 + 0.90000 + 1.00000) / 3 = 1.10000

After we’ve calculated the PP, we can use it as a reference to calculate the levels of support and resistance:

✓ First level of support and resistance:

Support 1 (S1) = PP - {(High - Low) * 0.382}

Resistance 1 (R1) = PP + {(High - Low) * 0.382}

or:

Support 1 (S1) = 1.10000 - {(1.40000 – 0.90000) * 0.382} = 0.90900

Resistance 1 (R1) = 1.10000 + {(1.40000 – 0.90000) * 0.382} = 1.29100

✓ Second level of support and resistance:

Support 2 (S2) = PP - {(High - Low) * 0.618}

Resistance 2 (R2) = PP + {(High - Low) * 0.618}

or:

Support 2 (S2) = 1.10000 - {(1.40000 – 0.90000) * 0.618} = 0.79100

Resistance 2 (R2) = 1.10000 + {(1.40000 – 0.90000) * 0.618} = 1.40900

✓ Third level of support and resistance:

Support 3 (S3) = PP - {(High - Low) * 1}

Resistance 3 (R3) = PP + {(High - Low) * 1}

or:

Support 3 (S3) = 1.10000 - {(1.40000 – 0.90000) * 1} = 0.60000

Resistance 3 (R3) = 1.10000 + {(1.40000 – 0.90000) * 1} = 1.60000

## Crypto Pivot Points Calculator

The Pivot Points Crypto calculator computes potential support and resistance levels to use with your charts.

We can use the same Floor and Fibonacci calculations for our Crypto position as with Forex.

Before we start, we input the required boxes:

✓ Open Price – 0.00053453

✓ High Price – 0.00059005

✓ Low Price – 0.00050373

✓ Close Price – 0.00057023

Calculations:

The Floor Pivot Points are calculated using the same formula as for the forex charts.

First, we need to calculate the Central Pivot Point (PP):

Central Pivot Point (PP) = (High + Low + Close) / 3

or, in our example:

Central Pivot Point (PP) = (0.00059005 + 0.00050373 + 0.00057023) / 3 = 0.00055467

The PP can be helpful when analyzing the price action. If the quotes are above the central pivot, the market is considered Bullish. If the quotes are below the central pivot, it is rather Bearish.

After we’ve calculated the PP, we can use it as a reference to calculate the levels of support and resistance:

✓ First level of support and resistance:

Support 1 (S1) = (PP * 2) – High

Resistance 1 (R1) = (PP * 2) - Low

or:

Support 1 (S1) = (0.00055467 * 2) – 0.00059005 = 0.00051929

Resistance 1 (R1) = (0.00055467 * 2) - 0.00050373 = 0.00060561

✓ Second level of support and resistance:

Support 2 (S2) = PP - (High – Low)

Resistance 2 (R2) = PP + (High - Low)

or:

Support 2 (S2) = 0.00055467 - (0.00059005 – 0.00050373) = 0.00046835

Resistance 2 (R2) = 0.00055467 + (0.00059005 – 0.00050373) = 0.00064099

✓ Third level of support and resistance:

Support 3 (S3) = Low – 2 * (High – PP)

Resistance 3 (R3) = High + 2 * (PP – Low)

or:

Support 3 (S3) = 0.00050373 – 2 * (0.00059005 – 0.00055467) = 0.00043297

Resistance 3 (R3) = 0.00059005 + 2 * (0.00055467 – 0.00050373) = 0.00069193

There are also intermediate levels, or mini levels, that can further be calculated.

After we’ve calculated the PP, we can use it as a reference to calculate the levels of support and resistance:

✓ First level of support and resistance:

Support 1 (S1) = PP - {(High - Low) * 0.382}

Resistance 1 (R1) = PP + {(High - Low) * 0.382}

or:

Support 1 (S1) = 0.00055467 - {(0.00059005 – 0.00050373) * 0.382} = 0.000521696

Resistance 1 (R1) = 0.00055467 + {(0.00059005 – 0.00050373) * 0.382} = 0.000587644

✓ Second level of support and resistance:

Support 2 (S2) = PP - {(High - Low) * 0.618}

Resistance 2 (R2) = PP + {(High - Low) * 0.618}

or:

Support 2 (S2) = 0.00055467 - {(0.00059005 – 0.00050373) * 0.618} = 0.000501324

Resistance 2 (R2) = 0.00055467 + {(0.00059005 – 0.00050373) * 0.618} = 0.000608016

✓ Third level of support and resistance:

Support 3 (S3) = PP - {(High - Low) * 1}

Resistance 3 (R3) = PP + {(High - Low) * 1}

or:

Resistance 3 (R3) = 0.00055467 + {(0.00059005 – 0.00050373) * 1} = 0.00064099

## Shares Pivot Points Calculator

The Pivot Points Shares calculator computes potential support and resistance levels to use with your charts when trading on the Stock market.

The most widely used methods for caclulating the Pivot levels of support and resistance are Floor and Fibonacci.

Before we start, we fill in the fields:

✓ Open Price – 15.00

✓ High Price – 19.00

✓ Low Price – 12.00

✓ Close Price – 14.00

Calculations:

The Floor Pivot Points are calculated using the same formulae as above.

First, we need to calculate the Central Pivot Point (PP):

Central Pivot Point (PP) = (High + Low + Close) / 3

or, in our example:

Central Pivot Point (PP) = (19.00 + 12.00 + 14.00) / 3 = 15.00

The PP can be helpful when analyzing the price action. If the quotes are above the central pivot, the market is considered Bullish. If the quotes are below the central pivot, it is rather Bearish.

After we’ve calculated the PP, we can use it as a reference to calculate the levels of support and resistance:

✓ First level of support and resistance:

Support 1 (S1) = (PP * 2) – High

Resistance 1 (R1) = (PP * 2) - Low

or:

Support 1 (S1) = (15.00 * 2) – 19.00 = 11.00

Resistance 1 (R1) = (15.00 * 2) - 12.00 = 18.00

✓ Second level of support and resistance:

Support 2 (S2) = PP - (High – Low)

Resistance 2 (R2) = PP + (High - Low)

or:

Support 2 (S2) = 15.00 – (19.00 – 12.00) = 8.00

Resistance 2 (R2) = 15.00 + (19.00 – 12.00) = 22.00

✓ Third level of support and resistance:

Support 3 (S3) = Low – 2 * (High – PP)

Resistance 3 (R3) = High + 2 * (PP – Low)

or:

Support 3 (S3) = 12.00 – 2 * (19.00 – 15.00) = 4.00

Resistance 3 (R3) = 19.00 + 2 * (15.00 – 12.00) = 25.00

There are also intermediate levels, or mini levels, that can further be calculated.

If you want to use the Fibonacci Pivot Points, the calculations are as follows:

First, we need to calculate the Central Pivot Point (PP):

Central Pivot Point (PP) = (High + Low + Close) / 3

or, for our example, this is:

Central Pivot Point (PP) = (19.00 + 12.00 + 14.00) / 3 = 15.00

After we’ve calculated the PP, we can use it as a reference to calculate the levels of support and resistance:

✓ First level of support and resistance:

Support 1 (S1) = PP - {(High - Low) * 0.382}

Resistance 1 (R1) = PP + {(High - Low) * 0.382}

or:

Support 1 (S1) = 15.00 - {(19.00 – 12.00) * 0.382} = 12.33

Resistance 1 (R1) = 15.00 + {(19.00 – 12.00) * 0.382} = 17.67

✓ Second level of support and resistance:

Support 2 (S2) = PP - {(High - Low) * 0.618}

Resistance 2 (R2) = PP + {(High - Low) * 0.618}

or:

Support 2 (S2) = 15.00 - {(19.00 – 12.00) * 0.618} = 10.67

Resistance 2 (R2) = 15.00 + {(19.00 – 12.00) * 0.618} = 19.33

✓ Third level of support and resistance:

Support 3 (S3) = PP - {(High - Low) * 1}

Resistance 3 (R3) = PP + {(High - Low) * 1}

or:

Support 3 (S3) = 15.00 - {(19.00 – 12.00) * 1} = 8.00

Resistance 3 (R3) = 15.00 + {(19.00 – 12.00) * 1} = 22.00
