Short term trading aka market timing isn't that difficult when using PivoatlPivots. As you can see on the chart above, the price of the S&P 500 index(SPX) moves back and forth from Pivot Point to Pivot Point. Most Novice traders use lagging indicators such as moving averages, RS1, MacD, etc. Pivot Traders don't need any of those. All we need is price and pivots.
