@KCLLive Haven't looked at your script any, but Mobius of the TSL coded Floor Trader Pivots for ThinkorSwim a decade ago. I'm certainly not trying to dissuade you from continuing your script - I think it very commendable that you are actively trying vs wanting others to do the coding. This may make it easier.

Code:
# Floor Traders pivots (can be used in scanner)
# Mobius
# V01.06.2011

def Today = GetDay() == GetLastDay();
def Yesterday = GetDay() == GetLastDay() - 1;
def last = if Today and !Today[1]
           then close[1]
           else last[1];
def prevHigh = if YesterDay and !YesterDay[1]
               then high
               else if Yesterday and
                       high > prevHigh[1]
                    then high
               else prevHigh[1];
def prevLow = if Yesterday and !Yesterday[1]
              then low
              else if Yesterday and
                      low < prevLow[1]
                    then low
               else prevLow[1];
def BubbleLocation = !yesterday and yesterday[1];

plot pHigh = prevHigh;
pHigh.SetPaintingStrategy(PaintingStrategy.HORIZONTAL);
pHigh.SetDefaultColor(color.dark_green);

pivot.SetPaintingStrategy(PaintingStrategy.HORIZONTAL);
pivot.SetDefaultColor(color.dark_gray);
AddChartBubble(BubbleLocation, pivot, "Pivot", Color.DARK_GRAY, no);

S2.SetDefaultColor(color.dark_gray);

If you ever need or want a script and can't find it here at UseThinkscript, try https://tinyurl.com/tsCommunity - its a OneNote kept up by Johnny Quotron of the TSL. There's far more codes there than anyone could ever use.
Hi, thanks for the code can you share this study via TOS?
 
To get valid Floor Trader Pivots on Monday, is there a modification to be able to use Friday's data when working on a Monday daily chart, rather than using no data and getting no Floor Trader Pivots or using Sunday night's limited data? Thanks.
 
Good afternoon!
I was working on updating floor trading pivots and im running in this issue with code plotting next day:
b086eb4dc1aff940dc2f67319ba82f4e.png


Is there a way to hide it if i want? I wrote input PlotNextDay but not sure how to apply it to this

Code:

input Timeframe = AggregationPeriod.DAY;
input ShowOnlyToday = YES;
input PlotNextDay = YES;
input price = FundamentalType.CLOSE;

#declare hide_on_daily;

#Cloud Color
defineGlobalColor("Cloud", Color.VIOLET);

def high = high(period = Timeframe);
def low = low(period = Timeframe);
def close = close(period = Timeframe);

plot PP;
plot LOD;
plot HOD;
plot BC;
plot TC;

#RESITANCES / SUPPORTS

plot R1;
plot R2;
plot R3;
plot R4;

plot S1;
plot S2;
plot S3;
plot S4;

if ShowOnlyToday and !IsNaN(close(period = Timeframe)[-2])

then {

PP = Double.NaN;
LOD = Double.NaN;
HOD = Double.NaN;
BC = Double.NaN;
TC = Double.NaN;

# RESISTANCES / SUPPORTS

R1 = Double.NaN;
R2 = Double.NaN;
R3 = Double.NaN;
R4 = Double.NaN;

S1 = Double.NaN;
S2 = Double.NaN;
S3 = Double.NaN;
S4 = Double.NaN;

} else {


PP = (high[1] + low[1] + close[1]) / 3;
LOD = low[1];
HOD = high[1];
BC = (high[1] + low[1]) / 2;
TC = (PP - BC) + PP;

# RESISTANCES / SUPPORTS

R1 = 2 * PP - low[1];
R2 = PP + (high[1] - low[1]);
R3 = R1 + (high[1] - low[1]);
R4 = R3 + (R2 - R1);

S1 = 2 * PP - high[1];
S2 = PP - (high[1] - low[1]);
S3 = S1 - (high[1] - low [1]);
S4 = S3 - (S1 - S2);

}


#PLOT LINES
PP.SetPaintingStrategy(PaintingStrategy.HORIZONTAL);
LOD.setPaintingStrategy(PaintingStrategy.HORIZONTAL);
HOD.setPaintingStrategy(PaintingStrategy.HORIZONTAL);
BC.setPaintingStrategy(PaintingStrategy.HORIZONTAL);
TC.setPaintingStrategy(PaintingStrategy.HORIZONTAL);

#SUPPORTS / RESISTANCES

R1.setPaintingStrategy(PaintingStrategy.HORIZONTAL);
R2.setPaintingStrategy(PaintingStrategy.HORIZONTAL);
R3.setPaintingStrategy(PaintingStrategy.HORIZONTAL);
R4.setPaintingStrategy(PaintingStrategy.HORIZONTAL);

S1.setPaintingStrategy(PaintingStrategy.HORIZONTAL);
S2.setPaintingStrategy(PaintingStrategy.HORIZONTAL);
S3.setPaintingStrategy(PaintingStrategy.HORIZONTAL);
S4.setPaintingStrategy(PaintingStrategy.HORIZONTAL);

#ADD COLOR

PP.SetDefaultColor(color = Color.VIOLET);
LOD.SetDefaultColor(color = Color.LIGHT_ORANGE);
HOD.SetDefaultColor(color = Color.LIGHT_ORANGE);
BC.SetDefaultColor(color = Color.VIOLET);
TC.SetDefaultColor(color = Color.VIOLET);

R1.SetDefaultColor(color = Color.GRAY);
R2.SetDefaultColor(color = Color.GRAY);
R3.SetDefaultColor(color = Color.GRAY);
R4.SetDefaultColor(color = Color.GRAY);

S1.SetDefaultColor(color = Color.GRAY);
S2.SetDefaultColor(color = Color.GRAY);
S3.SetDefaultColor(color = Color.GRAY);
S4.SetDefaultColor(color = Color.GRAY);

#CLOUDS
AddCloud(BC, TC, color1 = globalColor("Cloud"), color2 = globalColor("Cloud"));


Thank you!
 
@GRINKT change the first line of your IF statement to this:
Ruby:
if (ShowOnlyToday and !IsNaN(close(period = Timeframe)[-2])) or (!PlotNextDay and IsNaN(close(period = Timeframe)))
 
Appreciate that i was doing or statement inside first if so i couldnt get it to work...
If anyone wants this, here my version of floor pivots - http://tos.mx/HZG74pF
Hi, I've enjoyed trying out your script and it works well. I have used and modified a few scripts from here, but I have fairly limited coding ability to be honest. I wonder if you know how to add a label above each pivot line that stays at the far right edge of the window, as shown in the picture I've attached - this is a Ninjatrader script.
