How to Use Forex Yearly Pivot Points to Forecast Euro Targets (based on dailyfx article)
While most traders are familiar with daily, weekly, and even monthly
pivots which fit their type of trading, yearly pivots can also be used
to forecast future potential support and resistance areas. Buying at or
near a significant area of support and selling at a key area of
resistance is the main focus of any trader no matter what the market or
the duration traded. Yearly pivots can be monitored for those key
As you can clearly see in the Euro chart above, forex yearly pivots have been plotted. Notice how the Euro rallied up to the R2 pivot and turned around sharply falling over 600 pips in February. Another significant area that can be easily seen showing the power of
yearly pivots is the triple touch of the R1 yearly pivot at 1.2910. The
third and final touch led to over a 600-pip rally back to the R2 yearly
pivot to close out 2013 up over 4%.
Could forex yearly pivots show traders the next move in the Euro? In the
chart above the 2014 yearly pivots are plotted on the EURUSD chart. The
year is just getting started and the great thing about yearly pivots is
only having to draw them once a year! EURUSD is trapped between the
central pivot at 1.3461 and R1 at 1.4177. As at the time of this
writing, the Euro has not tested either pivot. However, forex traders
may be waiting for a move down to the central pivot (1.3461) for a move
back toward the R1 (1.4177) yearly pivot resistance.
Alternative scenario is for the Euro to make an immediate run for it up
to the R1 level. At R1 pivot resistance, traders may look to take profit
on their longs and/or short the Euro at this level. However, a close
above R1 could lead to a move higher to the R2 pivot (1.4610). Traders
should also consider the possibility of a close below the central pivot
that could lead to a prolonged down push to the S1 (1.3028) level.
Forex traders who scalpers, position or swing traders can make use of
yearly pivots to locate key areas of support and resistance. Look for
