Hope someone can answer this.

I was thinking of looking at the pivot areas on the intra-day Euro/USD. I think that he considers the Euro/USD to open at 3am US eastern time, or 8am GMT. Is this used as the open time for the pivot calculation or is it derived from the usual OHLC? If he does use 8am GMT, is there also another closing time?

For Forex, A and C figures given recently on Mark B. Fisher's website include:-

USD/CHF: A = 11 pips, C = 22 pips
EUR/USD: A = 10 pips, C = 12.5 pips
USD/JPY: A = 8 pips, C = 15 pips
USD/CAD A = 7 pips, C = 7 pips

Mark B. Fisher has also been quoted as saying that for Forex trading with his ACD system, you can in general take 10% of the ATR(10) for the A figure, and 15% of the ATR(10) for the C figure, and that this "system" will be about as reliable as any other way of working it out.

Go figure.
roberto , at the risk of being stupid what in the name of heaven is atr - is it average true range and how do i calculate it ? and more importantly do you feel it works on stocks as well - given the appropriate criteria ?

ATR has always stood for the average true range and you can find its definition by doing some googling...

I know fisher uses the pivot range as a entry point..but has anyone incorporated the ranges for the other s/r levels with any success?

Nice, but one trade is of no value to judge the method's merits. One would need to see at least 30 trades to get a barely adequate idea as to how the method works for this particular market.

hi guys
there was a narrow pivot range for GBPUSD and we have good volatility. but I prefered to trade on USDCHF. I attached a chart for USDCHF with two entry points.

hi zig zag,for trading eur/usd,you should see the chart at 8:30 to 9:00 cet
then you could identify oppening range
then you set A UP value at 10 pips above openning highand set A DOWN 10 pips below oppening low
and for C value you could set 12.5 pip above and below oppening range
cheers
