I am sure this has been beaten to death but this study does not display correctly...

using ES pit session the 3 day rolling pivot for today Monday 8apr is 1548.50 using 3d hi=1566.25, 3d lo= 1533.25, and 3d last (fri pit last)=1546...(1566.25+1533.25+1546)/3 =1548.5 the pivot variable study shows the same=1548.5

friday 5apr
3d hi=1568.00, 3d lo=1544.00, 4apr pit last=1554.75
pivot =(1568.00+1544.00+1554.75)/3=1555.58 while the pivot point variable shows 1561.58 which seems to be carried over from wens 3apr?

thurs 4apr
3hi=1568 3lo=1544 3apr pit last=1548.25
pivot(1568+1544+1548.25)/3=1553.42 while the pivot variable study displays 1561.58 still carried over from wens apr3

wens 3apr
3hi=1568 3lo=1552.5 2apr pit last=1564.25
pivot (1568+1552.5+1564.25)/3=1561.58 ...NOW the pivot variable period matches

tues 2apr pivot is 1555.42 while the pivot variable has 1560.67 same as monday 1apr
mon 1apr pivot 1557.75 while the pivot variable has 1560.67

The study is not using the data correctly....can someone please fix?

Thanks

for tomorrow 9apr the 3day rolling pivot for ES pit session should be

3d hi 1560.50
3d lo 1533.25
3d pit last 1559 (mon 8apr last)
(1560.5+1533.25+1559)/3=1550.92

Please provide us a Chartbook which contains the Pivot Points-Variable Period study so we can test this. The Chartbook should only contain one single chart. Instructions:

It would be best if you provide us an image of the chart and then point out visually where in the chart the problem is.

There is a misunderstanding as to what the study is designed to do. The lines you show from the spreadsheet study do not even look valid and are inconsistent with how the Pivot Points-Variable Period study is designed. The Pivot Point calculation you have configured is based on an entire 3 calendar days and will be the same across those 3 days assuming all the days actually exist. Some of them are going to be weekends.

We do not have any further time to spend on this. This is now marked as a user discussion.
