Thank you for your contribution helping those who desire to learn how to help themselves for understanding & coding thinkscript for themselves. Does your sample Pivot confirmation code here alert either a bullish or bearish directional Pivot via sound only; visual only or both?

I'll stop with that basic question; don't want to get to ahead of myself. I learn best taking baby steps. Thank you.

Hello Experts - Can we add one text to the pivots please -- Time Summation for the pivot.

Say pivot was made at 9:33 ( Just use hour and minutes) - Then add Hour and minute digits = here example is 9+3+3 = 15 so plot 15 below or above the pivot depending on it if was low or high pivot.
