Pivot points

This indicator calculates the traditional pivot points or so called support and resistance levels. For best results, we recommend setting the interval to 1d or 1w – this will give you useful daily or weekly support and resistance levels. This indicator matches the “Pivot Points Standard” built-in implementation on Trading View.

API parameters

Required String
The secret which is emailed to you when you request an API key.
Required String
The exchange you want to calculate the indicator from: binance, binancefutures or one of our supported exchanges. For other crypto / stock exchanges, please refer to our Client or Manual integration methods.
Required String
Symbol names are always uppercase, with the coin separated by a forward slash and the market: COIN/MARKET. For example: BTC/USDT Bitcoin to Tether, or LTC/BTC Litecoin to Bitcoin...
Required String
Interval or time frame: We support the following time frames: 1m, 5m, 15m, 30m, 1h, 2h, 4h, 12h, 1d, 1w. So if you're interested in values on hourly candles, use interval=1h, for daily values use interval=1d, etc.
Optional Integer
The backtrack parameter removes candles from the data set and calculates the pivotpoints value X amount of candles back. So, if you’re fetching the pivotpoints on the hourly and you want to know what the pivotpoints was 5 hours ago, set backtrack=5. The default is 0 and a maximum is 50.
Optional Integer
The backtracks parameter returns the pivotpoints value calculated on every candle for the past X candles. For example, if you want to know what the pivotpoints was every hour for the past 12 hours, you use backtracks=12. As a result, you will get 12 values back.
Optional String
The chart parameter accepts one of two values: candles or heikinashi. candles is the default, but if you set this to heikinashi, the indicator values will be calculated using Heikin Ashi candles. Note: Pro & Expert Plans only.
Optional Boolean
true or false. Defaults to false. By setting to true the API will return a timestamp with every result (real-time and backtracked) to which candle the value corresponds. This is helpful when requesting multiple backtracks.

More examples

Let's say you want to know the pivotpoints value on the last closed candle on the 30m timeframe. You are not interest in the real-time value, so you use the backtrack=1 optional parameter to go back 1 candle in history to the last closed candle.

				[GET] https://api.taapi.io/pivotpoints?secret=MY_SECRET&exchange=binance&symbol=BTC/USDT&interval=30m&backtrack=1
Get pivotpoints values on each of the past X candles in one call

Let's say you want to know what the pivotpoints daily value was each day for the previous 10 days. You can get this returned by our API easily and efficiently in one call using the backtracks=10 parameter:

				[GET] https://api.taapi.io/pivotpoints?secret=MY_SECRET&exchange=binance&symbol=BTC/USDT&interval=1d&backtracks=10
