# Pivot Point Calculator - Key Levels for Technical Analysis

HOME / PIVOT POINT CALCULATOR

The Pivot Point Calculator will show you support and resistance levels based on the pivot point formula.

Guide to use the Pivot Point Calculator

• Decide on the type of Pivot Point that you want t
• o calculate. You can choose between Classic, Woodie's, Camarilla, and De Mark. When in doubt, just go for Classic.
• Enter the highest price level, lowest price, and closing price in the columns provided. This price level corresponds to the time frame you choose. If you use a daily chart, then enter the highest price, lowest price, and closing price of the previous day.
• For De Mark Pivot Point, you need to add an opening price.
• Click "Calculate".

Pivot Point Calculator

Pivot points are created based on the highest price (High), the lowest price (Low), and the closing price (Close) of the previous prices to predict the prevailing support and resistance levels.

They don't have much use for pivot by itself as it is just one level that could be easily crossed. And so, they try to map future price movements by creating an area using support and resistance levels. Support and resistance levels are calculated using the following formula:

• Resistance 1 = (Pivotx2) - Low
• Resistance 2 = Pivot + (High-Low)
• Support 1 = (Pivotx2) - High
• Support 2 = Pivot - (High-Low)

In order to measure the accuracy of pivot points in the span of x number of days, here's what we can do:

Subtract the actual Low on that day with the support level based on pivot points. You'll get these formulas: Low – S1, Low – S2, and Low – S3.

Subtract the actual High on that day with the resistance level based on the pivot points. You'll get these formulas: High – R1, High – R2, and High – R3.

Find the average value of each result.
