Fibonacci Pivot Points

Summary: In this article we describe the use and calculation of Fibonacci Pivot Points, a little known variant compared with traditional pivot points. The novelty about this tool is that it interestingly combines the pivots and Fibonacci sequence to determine support and resistance levels where there is high probability that the market made ​​major moves.

The pivot points in its different variations can be used in two ways: to display the main trend in the market that we are analyzing or to display price levels in which we can open and close a position.
