This study is the thinkorswim version of the same study for Interactive Brokers.

The description of the study is found here:
https://www.interactivebrokers.com/...k/technicalanalytics/fibonaccipivotpoints.htm

This is what it looks like on the IB chart This is what it looks like on the thinkorswim chart The code is the fibs based on prev day close (could change to weekly, monthly if desired with some modification).

Pivot point studies highlight prices considered to be a likely turning point when looking at values from a previous period, whether it be daily, weekly, quarterly or annual. Each pivot point study has its own characteristics on how these points are calculated. The formula applied for the Fibonacci Pivot Points is:

Pivot Point (P) = (High + Low + Close)/3
Support 1 (S1) = P - {.382 * (High - Low)}
Support 2 (S2) = P - {.618 * (High - Low)}
Support 3 (S3) = P - {1 * (High - Low)}
Resistance 1 (R1) = P + {.382 * (High - Low)}
Resistance 2 (R2) = P + {.618 * (High - Low)}
Resistance 3 (R3) = P + {1 * (High - Low)}

This code does not seem to plot correctly?

@RDMercer are you saying the two screenshots I included in the original post do not work for you, or you found some condition where the study does not work? Your post gives no insight into what does not work for you.

The study seems not to function over all time frames other than intra day or short time frame integration. (1min, 5min, etc) It doesn't work for a 1 y 1d or Wk or larger time frame. Granted, this mat be as designed / intended, might not have every setting 100% correct, or perhaps I misunderstood the study functionality to start with. #### korygill

Ahh...I put this in the original post

The code is the fibs based on prev day close (could change to weekly, monthly if desired with some modification).

It would take more work to have this work on all charts/time frames.

I can get this script to work in the post and pre market?
