No it is not just you! I was just thinking the very same thing! (but that might only mean there are just two of us!!! )
SP500 gave a nice play from the FIBR Pivot to S1 and back - but I didn’t trade it - just watched!
I am finding it very difficult to trade off single lines like these pivot S/Rs. They don’t “mean” anything to me - I look at it and I just see a horizontal line! The Pivot itself is different in that it is literally a pivotal level compared with where we have been trading and I like to be in the same direction as price with respect to that Pivot line - but these R1-4 and S1-4 they leave me cold, I don’t think I am going to get anywhere with them! I can see them historically but when it comes to acting on them for the future, well, that is another thing. But like you said earlier , is this age or experience or simply a dull mind (on my part!)? I don’t know.
Personally, I think markets are very mixed and unsure nowadays. No one knows what tweets are coming next and the tone seems to swing from one extreme to another: Like, we are close to a deal with China, now we are not and we are punching hard again; we do not want a war with Iran, but now we do and we are sending boats and aircraft there to scare them!
Not surprising that traders do not know what to make of it all.
But, being a true Brit there is only one solution to it all:
