Using pivot points as a trading strategy has been around for a long time and was originally used by floor traders. This was a nice simple way for floor traders to have some idea of where the market was heading during the course of the day with only a few simple calculations.

The pivot point is the level at which the market direction changes for the day. Using some simple arithmetic and the previous days high, low and close, a series of points are derived. These points can be critical support and resistance levels. The pivot level, support and resistance levels calculated from that are collectively known as pivot levels.

The Wave Pattern
Elliott's main discovery was that market behavior could be identified and measured through a repeating eight wave sequence, consisting of 5 waves that he called "impulsive," followed by a 3-wave "corrective" sequence.  Impulse waves are labeled numerically 1 through 5, corrective waves are labeled A, B and C, as per the following example:

Of the many market sayings thrown around by traders, perhaps none is more overused and less understood than the old adage 'the trend is your friend'. All too often, the phrase is used after a trader has taken a counter-trend position and subsequently been stopped out at a loss.

Many new ones flock to trading currencies each year in the hopes of making a better life financially. The lure of making large amounts of money in a short period of time has a mass appeal, which is evident by the large number of Lotteries today.

Although many of my previous articles pointed to the act of 'focusing' to some degree, this will be the first time I've written an article that 'focuses' on this very subject. Because of how important I've found this subject to be in my own analysis and trading of the markets, it deserves a bit more consideration than a brief mention within some other topic.
