Forex Pivot Points

Are you all excited? It’s your last year in junior high before you head off to high school!

Professional forex traders and market makers use pivot points to identify potential support and resistance levels. Simply put, a pivot point and its support/resistance levels are areas at which the direction of price movement can possibly change.

The reason why pivot points are so enticing?

It’s because they are OBJECTIVE.

Unlike some of the other indicators that we’ve taught you about already, there’s no discretion involved.

In many ways, forex pivot points are very similar to Fibonacci levels. Because so many people are looking at those levels, they almost become self-fulfilling.

The major difference between the two is that with Fibonacci, there is still some subjectivity involved in picking Swing Highs and Swing Lows. With pivot points, forex traders typically use the same method for calculating them.

Many traders keep an eye on these levels and you should too.

Pivot points are especially useful to short-term traders who are looking to take advantage of small price movements. Just like normal support and resistance levels, forex traders can choose to trade the bounce or the break of these levels.

Range-bound traders use pivot points to identify reversal points. They see pivot points as areas where they can place their buy or sell orders.

Breakout forex traders use pivot points to recognize key levels that need to be broken for a move to be classified as a real deal breakout.

Here is an example of pivot points plotted on a 1-hour EUR/USD chart:

As you can see here, horizontal support and resistance levels are placed on your chart. And look – they’re marked out nicely for you! How convenient is that?!

Pivot Point Lingo

Here’s quick rundown on what those acronyms mean:

PP stands for Pivot Point.

S stands for Support.

R stands for Resistance.

But don’t get too caught up in thinking “S1 has to be support” or “R1 has to be resistance.” We’ll explain why later.

In the following lessons, you will learn how to calculate forex pivot points, the different types of pivot points and most importantly, how you can add pivot points to your forex trading toolbox!

外汇轴心点

       你觉得兴奋吗?这是你进入高中之前,在初中的最后课程了!

       职业交易者和做市商,喜欢使用轴心点来找出,潜在的支撑和阻力水平。简单来说,每一个轴心点 和 它支撑/阻力的水平区域,都会让价格触及后,可能产生反转。

       这就是为什么轴心点,如此迷人的原因吗?

       这是因为它们是 客观公正 的。

       不像我们已经教过你们的其他指标,轴心点不需要经过判断。

       在许多方面,斐波那契水平位与轴心点十分相似。因为很多人都盯着这些水平线,所以时常能够自我实现。

       轴心点和斐波那契的主要分别是,斐波那契的位置涉及了,分辨波段的最高点和最低点的主观因素。至于轴心点的位置,多数的交易者都是使用同样的方法来计算位置。

       许多交易者们留意这些水平位置,所以你也应该这么做。

       轴心点对于那些利用,价格小幅波动的短线交易者们,是十分有用的。就像使用一般的支撑和阻力位,交易者们可以在这些位置,当价格突破或反弹时,进行交易。

       区间震荡交易者,使用轴心点来确认反转点。他们把轴心点的位置,当成可以设置买单或卖单的地方。

       突破交易者,使用轴心点来辨识:真正需要突破的关键位置。当一段价格的移动被确实为趋势的时候。

       这是一个1小时欧元/美元的轴心点例子:

  

       正如你所看到的,水平的支撑和阻力位在你的图表上显示出来。瞧~它们漂亮的为你标示出来了!这是多么的方便啊?!

       那些英文首字母的缩写意思是:
             PP 代表:轴心点
               S  代表:支撑位
                R 代表:阻力位

       但是不要太陷入“S1一定会支撑着”或“R1一定会阻挡着”的思维当中,我们迟些会解释原因。

       在接下来的课程,你将学会如何计算轴心点,各种不同类型和重要性的轴心点,你可以更好的使用交易工具箱里的轴心点。
