pivot point

Definition

A technical indicator which is used to predict a change in resistance or support levels for a stock. The pivot point is calculated by taking the average of a stock's daily high, low, and closing price. If the market price increases above the pivot point, it is said to indicate a new support level, but if it decreases below the pivot point, it is said to indicate a new resistance level. Pivot points are often used in analysis of the forex market. Formula: the sum of the high, low, and closing prices divided by 3.
