# Pivot Points High/Low

3025 8
This is my code for something Trading View already gives us -- Pivot Points .
It's not really an indicator in itself, although when weekly highs or lows are broken it seems to be a big deal. I wrote this so I'd have something to play with.

Here’s one way to access previous values:
valuewhen(change(high_series) != 0, high_series, 1)
```study(title="Pivot Points HL", shorttitle="Pivots H/L", overlay=true)

//The length defines how many periods a high or low must hold to be a "relevant pivot"
len = input(14, minval=1, title="Length")

//define a series that is equal to the highest value over the last length
highest_high = highest(high, len)
//if that high holds for the full length return the value, else na
highest_dev = dev(highest_high, len) ? na : highest_high
//shift the series to where it started
high_pivot = highest_dev[-len+1]
//create a series which is equal to the last pivot
high_series = fixnan(high_pivot)

//repeated for lows
lowest_low = lowest(low, len)
lowest_dev = dev(lowest_low, len) ? na : lowest_low
low_pivot = lowest_dev[-len+1]
low_series = fixnan(low_pivot)

plot(high_series, color=black, linewidth=2)
plot(low_series, color=black, linewidth=2)
//plot(high_pivot, color=black, style=circles, linewidth=4)
//plot(low_pivot, color=black, style=circles, linewidth=4)```
Sometimes the less complex the better! Nice addition. Thanks.
Add a Median line and that would really be useful .....(hl2)

Just released an update. I wasn't supposed to use negative values in my brackets but got around it by using stored values. TradingView fixed it

I know this old but I need an indicator exactly like this, this is great! I assume that since you created it an update by tradingview has since broken your code. Any chance you could fix it? It would be greatly appreciated!

@Golgistain,
Is there any chance, someone could fix it, so it could actually work? I would like to use this indicator! Please! ;)
