I came across the pivot issue you are currently dealing with awhile back. However, I did not find one particular "opening" time to be conclusively "the one". Sometimes NY-based pivots worked, sometimes London-based pivots worked, sometimes GMT-based. I eventually just moved on from pivots.

Anyway, I would suggest trying NY pivots during the US session and London or GMT pivots during the European session, as in the end, no matter where people are, they tend to be self-centric.
