Best place to start would be VARSITY

In my view, every beginner should start applying Technical Analysis by watching Pivot levels. This looks like a novice stuff but its very accurate and useful. There are many strategies based on Pivot points. Camarilla Pivot Points is a very popular Intraday Trading method originated in 1989 by Nick Scott. The pivot points generated using Camarilla equation are used to generate Intraday levels for the stock using the High,Low,Close values from previous day. This method relies on the principle of Mean Reversion, however it has a flavour of Trend following too. Its is highly accurate for volatile stocks with good intraday volume. See the below calculator for Camarilla Pivot Points. You just need to enter the High,Low,Close values from the previous trading day for the selected stock and the pivot points would be calculated automatically.

Camarilla Equation Levels

The Camarilla Equation produces 8 levels from yesterday’s open, high, low and close. These levels are split into two groups, numbered 1 to 4. The pattern formed by the 8 levels is broadly symmetrical, and the most important levels are the ‘L3’, ‘L4’ and ‘H3’, ‘H4’ levels. While day trading, traders look for the market to reverse if it hits an ‘L3’ or ‘H3’ level. They would then open a position AGAINST the trend, using a stop loss somewhere before the associated ‘L4’ or ‘H4’ level. To calculate Camarilla Equation levels use the calculator at the top of this post.

The second way to try day trading with the Camarilla Equation is to regard the ‘H4’ and ‘L4’ levels as ‘breakout’ levels – in other words to go WITH the trend if prices push thru either the H4 or L4 level. This essentially covers all the bases – Day Trading within the H3 and L3 levels enables you to capture all the wrinkles that intraday market movement throws up, and the H4 – L4 breakout plays allow the less experienced trader to capitalise on relatively low risk sharp powerful movements.
