Calculation:

Calculation of the key level of the PP is calculated  according to the following formula:

PP = (H + L + C) / 3

, where

(H) - maximum of the previous day
(L) - minimum of the previous day,
(C) - closing price


Support and resistance levels are calculated as follows:

First support S1 = 2 * PP - High;
The first resistance R1 = 2 * PP - Low;
The second support is S2 = PP – (High – Low);
The second resistance R2 = PP + (High – Low);
Third support S3 = PP – 2 * (High – Low);
The third resistance R3 = PP + 2* (High – Low)


To add and configure the indicator, you must open the settings window.
