Calculation of pivot points

Garry,

If you don't mind me asking, are your pivot points a rolling 5 day number with the:

H = High of previous 5 days (excluding today)
L = Low of previous 5 days (excluding today)
C = Yesterday's close

Or do you update at intervals throughout the current session aswell?

Thanks,
Joey

I went for a 6 pointer off the daily PP at sell limit 1262.75. It worked, but I didn't get filled!
Still, learning something off you.

Cheers,
Joey

I think it's a common situation - people trying to catch the exact turn to maximise the move; but I prefer to give up a point or so in order to confirm the momentum etc.
I think you already understand the ploy to get the meat in the middle and leave the crusts - maybe just make your slices of ham a wee bit thinner ?

cheers, garry
