S&P 500 Index Daily, Weekly & Monthly Pivot Points

By -

Further to my last post, the following pivot point calculations and charts are provided to illustrate a variety of support and resistance levels for three timeframes, namely dailyweekly and monthly, for the S&P 500 Index (SPX).

For a detailed explanation of pivot points, feel free to check out John Person’s website at this link (the creator of this pivot calculator) and use his calculator for your own purposes. Just input the respective candle’s high, low and close values to the second decimal point and press “submit.”

Generally speaking, it uses the prior day’s, week’s, or month’s high, low and close to calculate the following day’s, week’s, or month’s Pivot Point (PP) and its resistance values above and its support values below. Price action above the PP is considered bullish, and below, it’s bearish.

The Russell fell 35%Amazing.
