# SVE Pivots Indicator for ThinkorSwim

#### Shane

##### New member
just trying to figure out how to get a 5 hour pivot point. I use SVEPivots and use the 4 hour setting but find the 5 hour pivots listed on investing.com more accurate and would like to mark the 5 hour pivot on my thinkorswim chart if possible. Anyone have code for this? Thanks for your help.

I don't think 5 hour is available as a timeframe in ToS.

Does anyone know how to make a label for the SVE Pivots? Every time I try It only gives me the R3 price and I am looking for the price of every line to show.

Hello everyone i use pivot points as strategy, im trying to built watchlist/scanner that will alert me every time a stock hit S3 or R3 but cant make it to work. the indicator called SVEPivots is anyone using it or willing to help?

i removed the second aggregation parameters. can't use them in a column or scan.

set the environment to DAY

This seems like a good place to ask this question. Can anyone limit the svepivots to a single day for me.
I have tried working on it but i can't get it to work. Thank you in advance!

Here is one that I had previously modified that might work for your request.
It plots the pivots for the selected lookback, defaulted to 1, in the optional right expansion area.
The optional bubbles can be moved sideways at the number entered at input bubblemover.

Code:
``````#
# TD Ameritrade IP Company, Inc. (c) 2014-2016
#
input show_in_right_expansion = yes;
input lookback = 1;
input aggregationPeriod = AggregationPeriod.DAY;

def PH = high(period = aggregationPeriod)[lookback];
def PL = low(period = aggregationPeriod)[lookback];
def PC = close(period = aggregationPeriod)[lookback];

plot R3;
plot R2;
plot R1;
plot PP;
plot S1;
plot S2;
plot S3;

PP = if show_in_right_expansion and !isnan(close) then double.nan else (PH + PL + PC) / 3;
R1 = 2 * PP - PL;
R2 = PP + (PH - PL);
R3 = 2 * PP + (PH - 2 * PL);
S1 = 2 * PP - PH;
S2 = PP - (PH - PL);
S3 = 2 * PP - (2 * PH - PL);

R3.SetDefaultColor(GetColor(5));
R2.SetDefaultColor(GetColor(5));
R1.SetDefaultColor(GetColor(5));
PP.SetDefaultColor(GetColor(0));
S1.SetDefaultColor(GetColor(6));
S2.SetDefaultColor(GetColor(6));
S3.SetDefaultColor(GetColor(6));

R3.SetPaintingStrategy(PaintingStrategy.HORIZONTAL);
R2.SetPaintingStrategy(PaintingStrategy.HORIZONTAL);
R1.SetPaintingStrategy(PaintingStrategy.HORIZONTAL);
PP.SetPaintingStrategy(PaintingStrategy.HORIZONTAL);
S1.SetPaintingStrategy(PaintingStrategy.HORIZONTAL);
S2.SetPaintingStrategy(PaintingStrategy.HORIZONTAL);
S3.SetPaintingStrategy(PaintingStrategy.HORIZONTAL);

input showbubbles = yes;
input bubblemover = 5;
def bn  = barnumber();
def mo  = bubblemover;
def mo1 = mo + 1;

AddChartBubble(showbubbles and bn==highestall(bn - mo1), pp[mo1], "PP" + lookback, pp.TakeValueColor());
AddChartBubble(showbubbles and bn==highestall(bn - mo1), S1[mo1], "S1-" + lookback, S1.TakeValueColor());
AddChartBubble(showbubbles and bn==highestall(bn - mo1), S2[mo1], "S2-" + lookback, S2.TakeValueColor());
AddChartBubble(showbubbles and bn==highestall(bn - mo1), S3[mo1], "S3-" + lookback, S3.TakeValueColor());
AddChartBubble(showbubbles and bn==highestall(bn - mo1), R1[mo1], "R1-" + lookback, R1.TakeValueColor());
AddChartBubble(showbubbles and bn==highestall(bn - mo1), R2[mo1], "R2-" + lookback, R2.TakeValueColor());
AddChartBubble(showbubbles and bn==highestall(bn - mo1), R3[mo1], "R3-" + lookback, R3.TakeValueColor());
