• Pivot point (PP) = (High + Low + Close) / 3

All Support and resistance levels are then calculated using the value of pivot point as shown below:

First level support and resistance calculation:

• First resistance (R1) = (2 x PP) – Low
• First support (S1) = (2 x PP) – High

The second level of support and resistance calculation:

• Second resistance (R2) = PP + (High – Low)
• Second support (S2) = PP – (High – Low)

The third level of support and resistance calculation:

• Third resistance (R3) = High + 2(PP – Low)
• Third support (S3) = Low – 2(High – PP)

Using pivot points, one can decide the tentative levels of any stock or index and set up his/her trade system. You can also start setting up your trade by calculating Fibonacci retracement using our Fibonacci Calculator.
