Once a currency pair has been selected for trading, it is time to pick a strategy for trading. To help aid in this decision, traders can use Camarilla pivots to identify key technical levels for trading. Below we can see these pivots in action with key levels of resistance labeled R1-4 and support labeled S1-4.
The first methodology of trading pivots is to look for a retracement. Retracement traders will look for pullbacks in the trend and look to enter the market near a point of support and resistance. If price is in a downtrend, such as the GBPJPY, traders will look for price to move to resistance and then enter fresh sell orders. Below we can see price action from this morning’s trading of the GBPJPY. First price moved up to resistance (R3), before momentum returned to the market and offering traders their first opportunity to enter fresh orders.
The second methodology of trading Camarilla Pivots is by looking for a breakout. Above we can see a breakout occurring today on the GBPJPY at the S4 support pivot. S4 represents the last line of daily support for a currency and in a downtrend and can offer a distinct area to enter new sell orders. This process can be inverted for an uptrend, looking to buy a breakout above the R4 resistance pivot.
