Your right the issue has been the scalping indicators have been slow to react to very quick trend changes, When they change the price has hit S/R and gives immediate draw-down.
I am sure you have done it when you open a trade and right away it goes against you, that entry is usually based on some indicator, by the time it changes the S/R has been reached.
Most indicators are based on either Moving averages or previous candle OHLC (Open, High,Low.Close)
I thought why not give Moving Averages a proper test,
As for pivot points I use Trading Central from FXCM demo account they have a free Indicator.
