pivot point code...

Hello, I am looking for a code that plots pivot points only,(no resistance lines) based on the previous candles data. Whether it be a 30 min, 240 min or even a tick chart. Not just daily, weekly, etc. A dot for each candle when the candle opens. Has anyone ever seen a code like this or could possibly write one. Or tell me where to look for one it'd be appreciated. thanks

MomDots are built from a 3-period SMA of the typical price, which is displaced by 2 bars.
PLDots are built from a 3-period SMA of the typical price, which is displaced by 1 bar.

What you actually look for is a SMA(1) calculated from the typical price and which is displaced by 1 bar.

The typcial price is obtained by the formula (high + low + close)/3.

The SMA(1) of the typical price is the typical price itself.

If you displace it by one bar, you get what is called the pivot point.

I do not know, whether ThinkOrSwim allows you to access the typical price for calculating indicator values.

You could check the formula for the Keltner Channel as it also uses the typical price for calculating the midband.


Below is a chart plotted with NinjaTrader. Is that what you look for?

Hmm.

And here I thought he was talking about Pivots, as in Floor pivots, and PP as in Pivot Point.

Due to time constraints, please do not PM me if your question can be resolved or answered on the forum.

Need help?
1) Stop changing things. No new indicators, charts, or methods. Be consistent with what is in front of you first.
2) Start a journal and post to it daily with the trades you made to show your strengths and weaknesses.
3) Set goals for yourself to reach daily. Make them about how you trade, not how much money you make.
4) Accept responsibility for your actions. Stop looking elsewhere to explain away poor performance.
5) Where to start as a trader? Watch this webinar and read this thread for hundreds of questions and answers.

thanks fat tails

Thanks for the info. Im not sure if thats it or not to be honest with you,but it looks close. Do you have the code for TOS for that indicator by any chance? I also use tradestation as well as TOS and I have the code and indicator on tradestation. I am trying to get the code for TOS as well.

I would post the code and see if someone could translate it to TOS but its a copyrighted code and the guy I got it from, well, I dont know how he'd feel about me putting it out there. Thanks for the help.

Yes, I missed the "dot for each candle" in original post.
