           Pivot points are used by traders as a predictive indicator and denote levels of technical
           significance. When used in conjunction with other technical indicators such as support and
           resistance or Fibonacci, pivot points can be an effective trading tool. Pivot points are calculated
           using the high, low and close prices of a previous day, week or month. Three different levels of
           support and resistance are calculated above and below the pivot point. The three levels of
           resistance are referred to as R1, R2, and R3 while the three levels of support are referred to as
           S1, S2, and S3. When the current price is trading above the daily pivot point, this serves as an
           indication to initiate long positions. Conversely, when the current price is trading below the daily
           pivot point, this serves as an indication to initiate short positions. The support and resistance
           levels are used primarily as trade exits. For example, if the market price breaks above the pivot
           point, R1 and R2 may be used as trade targets. Should the market move to R3, traders may
           consider exiting the long position and even reversing the position if other technical indicators
           show a strong reversal trend.
