How does this strategy work?

This strategy based on a standard pine script indicator called “Pivot Reversal Strategy.” You can find code for it in Pine Editor -> New section. 

The idea of the Pivot Reversal Strategy is straightforward. First, you have to find Pivot Highs/Pivot Lows points. Pivot High, for example, is a candle which has around it few candles on the left and on the right with lower highs level (for pivot lows higher lows). Levels of these points can be pretty good support/resistance levels. So when price crosses, these levels can be pretty good signals for a strategy. Here is my video on Pivot Points. 

In this strategy, I implemented two types of more advanced pivot points:

    • Significant Pivot Points. With the parameter “Sign. Pivot Points ATR Mult.” you can require that pivot point should have highs/lows higher/lower by a certain amount of ATRs. If you keep this parameter, 0 pivot points will be calculated in a usual way. 
    • Pivot of Pivots. When standard pivot high is surrounded with lower pivot highs, I consider it as a pivot of pivot high (opposite for pivot of pivot low). 

So long entry for this strategy is when price crosses over pivot high, short entry – price cross down pivot low. You can also enable additional filter for the entry. With parameter “Entry Bar TR (in ATRs)”

As exit for a strategy, you can choose 1 of 4 different trailing stop loss types: 

    • PSAR – Parabolic SAR indicator adapted as trailing stop loss. 
    • % – Trailing Stop Loss in % value
    • ATR – Trailing Stop Loss in ATR value
    • Absolute – Trailing Stop Loss in absolute value

What is this strategy good for?

Pivot Reversal + PSAR Strategy was developed for crypto for 15m to 2h timeframe. But it is very flexible so with different parameters it can work pretty good for different products and timeframes.

Here is an example of the performance of ETHUSD, 2h chart:
