 [2013-04-09 01:43:19] #5 Sierra Chart Engineering - Posts: 104368 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: https://www.sierrachart.com/index.php?l=PostingInformation.php#AttachFile 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.

 [2013-04-10 03:16:44] #11 Sierra Chart Engineering - Posts: 104368 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.
