Yes, in some indicators it is "DailyBars = false", in others like the pivots, there are three options including manual entry.

@madLyfe: You could answer some of the questions by yourself.

MyPivots does not provide coherent pivots, you just take those, because you rather believe in black and white than in your own charts.

You have just shown that MyPivots uses

-> the settlement price for 6E to calculate pivots
-> the last traded price for DX to calculate pivots

This does not make sense.


You can ask MyPivots, why they do this, but not me!

Don't think that the pivots by myPivots always make sense, because they have a website and publish them.

i know, i was just making sure i wasnt doing something wrong on my end of the deal..

if im using intradaydata instead of daily bars now will that effect the weekly/monthly pivots at all? it looks like it does a little bit when i compare the two.

lets say that i am only interested in currency futures, and calculating from intradaydata, i wouldnt need to connect to kinetic first anymore for daily data right?

also, could that maybe be a feature of the pivot indicators, kinda like you have the holiday dates down below? ability to set defaults for instruments? i could set the currencies to use intradaydata and the rest use daily bars? maybe a black list/white list type of thing?

The daily pivots have no impact on weekly or monthly pivots. You can see weekly and monthly pivots to DailyBars or CalcFromIntradayData, as you prefer.

You do not need to connect to Kinetick, if you do not make use of that daily data. In that case your daily data base will be populated by something else, which is not the official values.

Yes, this can be done, but it goes too far for an indicator that is available for free download. The indicator already as so many features that nearly everybody - including @madLyfe - is confused. So I am not going to add any more features to the free version.
