## Pivot Points Calculation For Trading

Code to add this calci to your website

#### Formula Used:

Pivot Point = (H + C + L) / 3
R3 = H + 2 x ( Pivot - L )
R2 = Pivot + ( R1 - S1 )
R1 = 2 x Pivot - L
S1 = 2 x Pivot - H
S2 = Pivot - ( R1 - S1 )
S3 = L - 2 x ( H - Pivot )

**Where, **
H - Previous Days High
L - Previous Days Low
C - Previous Days Close
R - Resistances Levels
S - Supports Levels
This Pivot Points Calculation For Trading resistance and support level is highly useful to anyone involved in online forex trading, option trading, fx options, online future trading. Using this pivot points calculator, the idea of trading and the idea of where the market is heading during the course of the day can be got with only a few simple calculations.

#### Example:

**High price is 120, lower price is 56 and the close price is 45. Find the Pivot Points for trading.**

Pivot Point = (H + C + L) / 3

Pivot Point = (120 + 56 + 45) / 3

Pivot Point = 73.66666

R3 = H + 2 * ( Pivot - L )

R3 = 120+2*(73.66666 - 56)

R3=155.3333

S1 = 2 * Pivot - H

S1 = 2 * 73.66666 - 120

S1 = 27.33332

R1 = 2 * Pivot - L

R1 = 2 * 73.66666 - 56

R1 = 91.33332

S2 = Pivot - ( R1 - S1 )

S2 = 73.66666 - ( 91.33332 - 27.33332 )

S2 = 9.66666

R2 = Pivot + ( R1 - S1 )

R2 = 73.66666 + ( 91.33332 - 27.33332 )

R2 = 137.66666

S3 = L - 2 * ( H - Pivot )

S3 = 56 - 2 * ( 120 - 73.66666 )

S3 = -36.66668
