### How the PPP Series Helps Save Time and Money

Let's assume that:

- 5 minutes is spent each day calculating and plotting pivot points on a single chart
- Your 1 hour labour/work is worth $7.25 (Federal Minimum Wage in the United States)
- There are 20 trading days in a month

These assumptions are reasonable and are highly conservative. With the above data, let's calculate how much time and money you would save in a year of owning Daily Pivot Indicator.

Amount of time spent calculating and plotting pivot points in a month = 5 * 20 = 100 min (20 trading days in a month). Amount of time spent calculating and plotting pivot points in a year = 100 * 12 (months in a year) = 1 200 min. Convert 1 260 min to hours = 1200/60 = 20 hours. Monetize 20 hours of work = 20 * 7.25 = $145.

The analysis above shows that with the most conservative assumptions, you would spend 20 hours yearly calculating and plotting pivot points. The time spent would have amounted to $145 of effort.

If you trade 2 pairs, that would be $290 in a year. It would be $435 if you trade 3 currency pairs. Imagine how much it would be if you trade 5 or more currencies.

With the analysis above, you can immediately see how much time and money is spent doing what you consider the simplest thing in the world.

Invest your time wisely in your strategy and let daily pivot do the hard work of calculating and plotting your daily pivot points.
