@BenTen I've enhanced the Pivot Point Indicator by adding Daily Pivot Points, so now you can put Daily Pivots on a Hourly chart :) I would suggest a longer time period than 1 day...perhaps 10 or 20 days...

Thanks for the update to daily. You said, "I've enhanced the Pivot Point Indicator by adding Daily Pivot Points, so now you can put Daily Pivots on a Hourly chart :) I would suggest a longer time period than 1 day...perhaps 10 or 20 days... " How do you enter multiple days in the code?

@soary The pivot points are dependent on the default timeframes included in TOS. As a result, you are limited to the added daily timeframe. With that said, you could go into the code and add 2 days, 3 days, and 4 days, as these are also default timeframes. 10 and 20 days are beyond the scope of the script and TOS...

Now that I think about it...you could do 20 days if you select the supplied Monthly timeframe :cool:

Hope this helps...

Good Luck and Good Trading :)

@Bruce lee

Code:
# Plot previous week's close

input aggregationPeriod = AggregationPeriod.WEEK;

plot WeekClose = close(period = aggregationPeriod)[1];

How to do the CPR indicator. Central pivot range. Thanks (i think it's also there in trading view, but couldn't find in TOS.)

@BenTen i am using your pivot script and wanted to create a watchlist that indicates if the pivot has been crossed in the last 5,10, 15 min
i created 5 min watchlists columns for all pivots ( one column for R1 , one for S1 ). I wrote the code below but its not giving me any thing any ideas what can be wrong

def test = PivotbossPivot()."R1" ; <-- using the pivot calculation from your script )


plot signal = if close(period = AggregationPeriod.FIVE_MIN) crosses above test then 1
else if close(period = AggregationPeriod.FIVE_MIN)[1] crosses above test then 2
else if close(period = AggregationPeriod.FIVE_MIN)[3] crosses above test then 3
else 0;
AddLabel(1,if signal == 1 then "1-Buy" else if signal == 2 then "2-Buy" else if signal == 3 then "3-Buy"
else "2-Hold ", color.black);

AssignBackgroundColor(if signal ==1 then color.Dark_green
else if signal == 2 then color.green
else if signal == 3 then color.light_green
else color.black);

@BenTen @netarchitech here is the complete code..if you get a chance please let me know were am making a mistake (please note the watchlist column is on 5 min

Code:
input timeFrame = { default DAY, WEEK, MONTH};
input showOnlyToday = no;

def H = high(period = timeFrame)[1];
def L = low(period = timeFrame)[1];
def C = close(period = timeFrame)[1];

def calc_PP = (H + L + C) / 3;
def calc_BC = (H + L) / 2.0;
def calc_TC = (calc_PP - calc_BC) + calc_PP;
def calc_R1 =  (2 * calc_PP) - L;
def calc_R2 = calc_PP + H - L;
def calc_R3 = H + 2 * (calc_PP - L);

def calc_S1 = (2 * calc_PP) - H;
def calc_S2 = calc_PP - H + L;
def calc_S3 = L - 2 * (H - calc_PP);

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

if (showOnlyToday and !IsNaN(close(period = timeFrame)[-1])) or
(getAggregationPeriod() > if timeframe == timeframe.DAY
                          then AggregationPeriod.DAY
                          else if timeframe == timeframe.WEEK
                               then AggregationPeriod.WEEK

@KamranN Read the error messages at the bottom...

First, you had a closing "}" from a conditional statement well after the statement had ended... Then you are trying to call a Custom Thinkscript Study where only Licensed Thinkscript Studies are allowed... I went no further than that...
 
hey guys, is it possible to just show the last set of pivot lines for the last close and keep them off for all the past closes?

Is there a way to add R4, S4, R5, S5? I am not very good in coding. The extended pivot lines are sometimes usefull
at stocks who go parabolic. Thanks.
