If you don’t currently use Pivot Points in your trading, you may want to consider integrating them into your trading plan.  In the chart below we apply the Weekly Pivots to our 60 minute chart, and are shown a straightforward trend trade last night at the confluence of the most recent trend line and the Weekly Central Pivot.

What’s fascinating about about watching set-ups like this unfold is how little the trader contributes.  You are just there to initiate the trade and set the stop — in other words the trader’s job is to NOT think, to follow his plan,  and to NOT mess it up.  

On the 15 minute chart where we would use Daily Pivots both GBPJPY & EURJPY bottomed right on Pivot S1, which is text book price to Pivot Point behavior.

The most interesting part of the set-up and trade would have been had you chosen to get short just ahead of the first test of that Weekly Central Pivot, which would certainly have been acceptable, before the buy signal we’ve highlighted.

DISCLAIMER: Forex (off-exchange foreign currency futures and options or FX) trading involves substantial risk of loss and is not suitable for every investor. The value of currencies may fluctuate and investors may lose all or more than their original investments. Risks also include, but are not limited to, the potential for changing political and/or economic conditions that may substantially affect the price and/or liquidity of a currency. The impact of seasonal and geopolitical events is already factored into market prices. Prices in the underlying cash or physical markets do not necessarily move in tandem with futures and options prices. The leveraged nature of FX trading means that any market movement will have an equally proportional effect on your deposited funds and such may work against you as well as for you.

Loss-limiting strategies such as stop loss orders may not be effective because market conditions may make it impossible to execute such orders. Likewise, strategies using combinations of positions such as “spread” or “straddle” trades may be just as risky as simple long and short positions.
