The All Pivot Points indicator is exactly just what its name suggests. It is a Pivot Point indicator that can be modified to plot all the various types of Pivot Points.

How the All Pivot Points Indicator Works?
As mentioned earlier, the All Pivot Points indicator can use various computations to plot the different types of Pivot Points. It will also plot the Pivot Points based on the selected timeframe as basis.
For example, if the selected timeframe is the daily chart using a Classic Pivot Point, the All Pivot Points indicator would compute for the Daily Pivot Point (PP) based on the average of the high, low, and close of the previous day. The various Support (S1, S2, S3 and S4) and Resistance (R1, R2, R3 and R4) points will also be computed based on the main Pivot Point (PP). These lines will be displayed on the timeframes lower than the daily chart.
This indicator plots the lines based on a color coding.
Pivot Point (PP): Light Gray
Support 1 (S1): Red
Support 2 (S2): Crimson
Support 3 (S3): Fire Brick
Support 4 (S4): Maroon
Resistance 1 (R1): Lime
Resistance 2 (R2): Lime Green
Resistance 3 (R3): Medium Sea Green
Resistance 4 (R4): Sea Green
Other important modifications would be the “Show Mode”, “Calculation Mode” and the “Time Frame”.
