Forex Camarilla eqution, Forex camarilla pivot points trading

L3 and H3 are Camarilla's support and resistance levels accordingly. At support or resistance level market is expected o stop and reverse either temporarily or permanently. Forex scalpers like these levels; however, trading this way is a hit-or-miss game, because the moment price hits L3 or H3 Camarilla pivot, it is not known yet whether there will be a stop and reverse or not. Therefore, one could opt to wait a little bit longer, till signs of price reversal emerge: these are "shooting star" patterns, "hammer" candles and also reversal patterns where market starts to close higher with every new bar upon hitting support (L3) or lower with each new bar upon hitting resistance (H3).

L3 and H3 Camarilla pivot levels hold price in while it moves sideways. Taking short profits is very important at this stage. This trading style will be carried out till a true trend starts - it will start with a breakout.

Trading Camarilla breakouts

Forex breakout trading with Camarilla equation involves L4 and H4 pivot levels. You may notice a margin between H3 and H4 or L3 and L4 level - that's a no man's land.

When trading Camarilla breakouts, Forex traders expect the market to continue running in the direction of the breakout. When L4 level is broken downwards - SELL. When H4 is broker upwards - BUY.

Profit targets are set to either L5 and H5 Camarilla levels or to Pivot point Support/Resistance level. Alternatively, you can scale out of the market each time a new level (Pivot or Camarilla) is hit - preferred exiting method.

Finally, if to examine Camarilla levels with Pivot Point levels in Forex, in our opinion, regular Pivot points have higher value, therefore, we see combining Camarilla trading with Forex Pivot points as a winning combination.

Hi..i got a question, how do we setup for pivot point shift for GMT?

Just use the default, because from the code it appears that GMTshift has to do rather with calculating Camarilla pivots for Monday by using Friday's data rather than Sunday.
The settings are not related to time zones.

GMT Offset is in fact the most important variable to set. Your brokers server time is probably very different from what you should be using. I find EST to be the most respected by price and set GMT offset so that the day is Midnite to Midnite EST. In my case thats a 7 hr offset (using FX-Pro). If not set the error is often substantial - even 50 pips or more. The same goes for any indicater that references a particular time of day - such as daily Hi-Lo, Daily Pivots, Daily Ranges etc. If there is no Server Offset input, then these indicators will output garbage, unless your brokers server is configured to the time zone you with to trade.

Otherwise, you may as well just draw some lines on your monitor and "pretend" they're pivots - you'll be just as successful as you would be using the random lines and numbers generated by the above type of indicators that can't be time adjusted.

Happy Trading
