Daily Pivots Have A Bug Or Is This Intended Design

#1 Postby kiwirob » Wed Apr 11, 2012 8:44 am

Hi Guys

Love the tool. Invaluable to the novice trader wanting to become a professional trader.

I have a question regarding Pivot Points as I am a huge user of them. The Daily Pivot Points created for a Monday, look to be calculated using candles that are generated on a Sunday? The Monday Pivots Should be generated off Fridays Price action. Was this intended this way? Is there a way I can change settings so it will use Fridays price action vs the candles generated on a Sunday?

I have attached a screen shot to better explain. Please contact me if you have any other questions

it is not a bug of PP indicator. You can fix this by removing Sunday bars from the testing, to do this do one of the following:

1) remove Sunday bars during the import process (use "ignore weekends" option in "import from server" dialog)

2) shift data so you will have no bars on Sunday. Please try to set "Shift time=1 or 2" in your Data Center.
