# Pivot Trend

Another original idea is here with you. Actualy I can say that it’s a breakout strategy that uses multiple Pivot Point’s averages.

How it works?

• it finds the Pivot Points , you can set the length as you want
• it gets averages of Pivot Highs and Pivot Lows, you can set the number of Pivot Points to be included
• it compares the current closing price with averages of Pivot Highs and Pivot Lows
• if both are positive or negative then trend changes

You have two options:

• Pivot Point Period => is the length that is used to find Pivot Points . means it checks left/right bars if it’s Pivot Point (4 by default)
• Number of PP to check => is the number of Pivot Points that the script finds and calculates the averages (3 by default)
