I have just finished "Secrets Of A Pivot Boss" book and it was an excellent read (highly recommended).

There are some codes for price action indicators as well as pivot indicators that is in the back of the book.

My question is: Hs anybody coded these indicators for Thinkorswim?

If not can anybody code these for me and I will be happy to post them up here.

Thanks BM traders.

Well for me it was a fantastic read because he covers Market Auction theory application in conjunction with pivots. He also discusses candlesticks and how they tell a story from market participants when used at "Key Levels" such as pivots, VOPC's, Value Area's, LVN's, HVN's (Volume Profile). I think you can go to his website and get a preview into his book. The free ebook is not the same as his newly released book though.

PivotBoss

hope this helps

Hello,

I am wondering if anyone has coded Frank's indicators yet. I have been looking on the forum to see if I can find them coded for ninjatrader.

curious to get introduced to the "concept" or idea of that pivot indicator that you're looking for, would you be able to share a summary of your own understanding of what it does and how it (should) work? but pls note the "your own understanding" part, i truely appreciate if we can avoid violating IP rights with the book in here,

thx, RedK

I started a two week trial of Pivot Boss's daily reports and a 5 day boot camp, which I hope is live trading. I read the book and liked it. That was two years ago so I need to read it again. There are tons of pivots out there in the real world. And, you always see charts with how the price action reacted around pivots. So, they all see to work. I have seen gurus create pivots off the first hour IB and the mid-point of those. That's nothing new.

There is even a site called Pivot Farm where they put together confluence of pivots that create key areas to give you a really significant area to watch, key areas. But, you can also create those on your own chart watching price action.

I once drew my own pivot lines at random and was stunned at how much they seemed to work as a key area for the price to react to. What I am trying to get straight in my head is how to enter a trade on significant, key areas. I think I like the Spring and Thrust entries of Wyckoff so far. I am beginning to see some profitability in my trading using those.

Oh, yes...trend channels are in effect pivots also. Or at least they seem to be to me.

Bottom-line for what I may be trying to say, if you want to understand Pivot Boss, spend $20 on his trial that started today. And, buy the book. It always seems to get good reviews.

If you want the PivotBoss Indicators for Thinkorswim just sign up for the two-week trial and you'll get all the 9 indicators for Thinkorswim included. Hope that helps.

@mindthegap: The indicator below covers floor pivots (RTH), GLOBEX pivots, expanded pivots, the pivot range, Fibonacci pivots, Jackson Zones, Camarilla pivots.



You will also find N-day rolling pivots (includes balance point) here:



I have not read the book by Franklin Ochoa, so please let me know, whether there are other pivots that need to be added.

Would it be possible to generate intraday pivots like say 30 minutes, 60 minutes and 120 minutes? thanks.

Thanks, Fat Tails - works great with market data. Then I was trying to use it with market replay and for some reason the pivots and pivot range are not plotting? What am I missing / or doing wrong?
TIA

The pivots work with replay data. However, they access historical daily data from the database. You may need to load daily historical data first.

Hi all,

I am trying to find out if it is possible to have TOS code re-coded to NT.

I have Franks Code for TOS for the developing Pivot range and also for a candle stick reversal pattern indicator I am interested in. I would be happy to pay for this work and then to donate to the site if there is interest.

thanks

G
