If you're having trouble with drawing trend lines, support and resistance levels then this indicator can help. It's called Projection Pivots, developed by Mobius for ThinkorSwim.

Upon adding the indicator, it will plot several trend lines, support, and resistance channels based on critical pivot points of the stock.

What I normally do is load this up at the end of each trading day and plot new S/R areas onto my chart based on the suggestion of the Projection Pivots indicator. I would also do this at the end of the week as well. It's important that you have these levels up to date on your chart.

This looks great but I am looking for an indicator that will plot the traditional pivot lines on the chart automatically even if I change symbols and time frames.
The Formulas for classic Pivot Points: Pivot Point Formulas. Investopedia
PIVOT POINTS (P) = (HIGH + LOW + CLOSE) = ALL RESULTS / 3
RESISTENCE 1 (R1) = (P * 2) - LOW
RESISTENCE 2 (R2) = P + (HIGH – LOW)
SUPPORT 1 (S1) = (P * 2) - HIGH
SUPPORT 2 (S2)= P – (HIGH – LOW)
Resistance (r3) = pp + 2 * (h – l);
Support (s3) = pp – 2 * (h – l);
The one in TOS does not work well on a daily chart no matter what setting it does not place clean lines on the chart but it works with in-traday charts. I want it to work after the close on a daily chart.
Thanks

@soary Sorry. Must have been in my studies so long I thought it was standard to ToS. Here it is. Adjust the n value to your needs.

Code:
# Pivot_Array (***Please copy and paste this name to study name above***)
# Mobius
# V01.09.13.2017
#hint: Plots the most recent 4 resistance pivots and support pivots. \n For scanning: Find the study in list of studies then select either BearScan or BullScan as the left side entry in the Scan Wizard and equal to as the center definition and close price as the right side entry.

# User Inputs

@BenTen and @horserider , How to use these indicator for Monthly, Weekly,Hourly 4hours,30mts, 15 and 5 mts.
San, The idea is for the script to use the H, L, C data from the monthly, weekly and daily charts and since the data changes I would draw them onto the chart so that when I go to a lower time frames the lines appear. The daily lines would be changed daily but the monthly and weekly would not be changed until the new week or month. These act as support and resistance levels so that when price hit any of them in any time frame you know you are at a key level, I still have questions on the script so I will respond to the post. Hope that helps.

@soary Sorry. Must have been in my studies so long I thought it was standard to ToS. Here it is. Adjust the n value to your needs.

Code:
# Pivot_Array (***Please copy and paste this name to study name above***)
# Mobius
# V01.09.13.2017
#hint: Plots the most recent 4 resistance pivots and support pivots. \n For scanning: Find the study in list of studies then select either BearScan or BullScan as the left side entry in the Scan Wizard and equal to as the center definition and close price as the right side entry.

# User Inputs

horserider, Thanks I just added it and I have a few questions. I'm not a script writer so how to remove the color bubbles labels for the various levels? Do I only delete the lines that say,
addChartBubble(Bar == HighestAll(PHBarOrigin), PHvalue, "R1", color.green, 1);
.....................................................
To be explicit
on the daily chart after the close E/O/D would n = 1
on the weekly chart set up on a Saturday would n = 7 not counting the starting Saturday counting from or n = 8 counting the starting Saturday
on a monthly chart would n = 30 or 31 depending on the # days in that particular month if I look at it after the close on the last day of the month
......................................................
Also, I noticed some extra levels called PR1 and then it goes on to R1,R2....R4 and PS1 and then it goes on to S1,S2......S4, what are PR1 AND PS1? I'm guessing PR1 may be the Pivot followed by R1 to R4 but then what is PS1 since it already plots S1 TO S4?
........................................................
A line in the code says, Plots the most recent 4 resistance pivots and support pivots. Does this mean I should turn off extended hours market at close for example when I need to get the daily pivots?

@soary I would just comment out the add bubble lines.
Sorry not sure how n works. It is in the fold calculations and I as yet have no idea how fold works. Math is not my best subject.
I believe PR1 and PS1 are the high and low of the chart being displayed.
I never use extended hours but my guess is it will choose points in the extended hours. Try it and see. Then you can decide which way gives you the lines you want.

I really like the trend line drawing in this script. I don't use the Pivots myself because i have another script for that but the automatic drawing of trendlines is super!

nice video but it is fast I looked multiple times at the ending but still didn't get the last part.. What was that at the end that seems to add the price of the levels towards the end? Can you describe that part? Thanks

can i make it show weekly pivots even though im on the 6mo 1day chart? Also can you scan it?
I believe it could be done using aggregation periods, though it would require some re-working.

The code comments in the version posted in line by @horserider at #6 in this thread have hints for using the script in a scan. :) but you can always brew your own, so lang as the scan returns exactly one value (boolean) to scan against. -- that can be in the form of x == y, x > y, x > y and x < z, etc... but returns only one thing. comment out other plots.

This is my first post here, so perhaps my tone isn't the most considered for the group. I don't mean to offend.

Happy Scripting

@Nikola I didn't make this indicator. Another developer, named Mobius produced it. I believe both utilize pivot points. The one that horserider shared also include ATR (average true range). You should try them out and see which one works better for you.

@Nikola Here's what I know about these two pivot studies. The study that @BenTen posted is called Projection Pivots while the study that @horserider posted is called Pivot Array with Signals. Both studies were written by Mobius.

In the Projection Pivots study, notice there is an input variable called "n" with a value of 21. That looks at the last 21 pivots and plots projection lines. Load that on a daily aggregation chart of /ES. Now when you change the value of that from 21 to 5, you'll see very different results on the chart.

The other study called Pivot Array with Signals was written by Mobius for TheoTrade. It plots the most recent 4 support and resistance pivots labelled with signals. None of these indicators use any form of ATR, it is based purely on price and prior pivots.

Mobius had also recently written another study called Trend Pivots that is great for intraday trades especially on /ES. It is an amazing study, it tends to react really well to turning points. One of the big pluses for me is that I can watch the pivots form and see how price reacts to pivot points especially on a 2 min timeframe. Good for a quick $200-300 win most days especially during volatile sessions, good enough for lunch/dinner!

Hope this helps

What timeframes and parameters you use for this study?

@skynetgen I used standard parameters, on a 2 day 2 min timeframe, instrument: /ES. One enhancement is that I also added a very simple color coded TICK and AD label on my chart to get a sense of the underlying market sentiment

Here's what I use:

# START CODE
input TickSymb = "$TIKSP";
input ADSymb = "$ADSPD";
def TICKS = if !IsNaN(close(TickSymb)) then close(TickSymb) else TICKS[1];
def AD = if !IsNaN(close(ADSymb)) then close(ADSymb) else AD[1];
AddLabel(1, " Tick = " + TICKS, if TICKS < 0 then Color.Pink else Color.Cyan);
AddLabel(1, " AD = " + AD, if AD < -350 then Color.Pink else if AD > 350 then Color.Cyan else if between(AD, -250, 250) then Color.White else Color.Yellow);
# END CODE

Do you know if the Trend Pivots study is currently avaliable for TOS?
