Day Trading by Pivot




If you are wondering about how to day trade stocks, then you must learn the use of support and resistance levels, also called pivot levels. For intra day trading, pivot levels are among the best day trading tools. Daytraders always use these levels to anticipate market movements and often base their trade entry or exits near these levels. Almost all stock trading platforms provide tools to calculate these levels. Stock trading softwares also provide automated pivot levels.

      Volatile markets are best traded in the second half when a clear range becomes visible on charts. Then it becomes easy to identify top (resistance) and bottom (support) levels. Volatile markets require lots of patience in trading.

      Secondly, you can consult 15-minutes candlestick chart from previous day’s session and understand the support or resistance levels during closing hour of that day (use last 4 candles to check levels). Use those levels as the first range of a new session and above that range, go long, below that range try a short position. Do not over trade, do not trade in many lots. Volatile markets will eat all your capital if you over trade.
