Trading Around PivotTrading “around” a pivot is necessary if one is to avoid the bounce that often occurs when price approaches it.

A pivot is formed from a candle body, not at the high/low price associated with a wick.

A pivot is broken when 2/3 of the candle body breaches it to the upside or downside.

Few pivots function like this and an indicator like this is mandatory if a trader is to avoid trading into support or resistance.

In the JPEG above, the dark black box shows a system generated long entry signal.

But the trade would take place right into a pivot (red dashed line).

Price hits point “A” at the pivot and bounces down (would have caused a stop out)

The pivot breaking candle “B” has its candle body 2/3 through the pivot to the upside.

The trade, taken will little risk goes 35 ticks.

The break in the pivot is oftentimes associated with a POP in price as the residual short traders in the pivot get stopped out.
