Pivot Points in Focus: Envision Solar International Inc (EVSI)

A “pivot point” is a technical analysis indicator used to glean the overall trend of the market over differing time periods.  The pivot point itself is simply the average of the high, low and closing prices from the previous day’s trading.  On the following day, any trading above the pivot point indicates ongoing bullish trends, while trading below the pivot point indicates a bearish trend.  Pivot point analysis is used in calculating support and resistance levels, much like trend line analysis.  In pivot point analysis, the first support and resistance levels are found by utilizing the width of the trading range between the pivot point and either the high or low prices of the previous trading day.  Secondary support and resistance levels are found using the full width between the high and low prices of the previous trading day.

Pivot points are oft-used indicators for trading futures, commodities, and stocks.  They are static, remaining at the same price level throughout the day.  Five pivot point levels are generated by using data from the previous day’s trading range. These are composed of a pivot point and two higher pivot point resistances called R1 and R2 and also two lower pivot point supports called as S1 and S2.  Envision Solar International Inc (EVSI)’s Pivot Point is 0.1643.  Its 1st Resistance Point is 0.1736 and its 2nd Resistance Point is 0.1783.  The 1st Support Point is 0.1596 while its 2nd Support Point is 0.1503.
