Live blog: Trading pivots

SPY pivots.  I've been looking at pivots and bounces over the past couple weeks as a means of reading markets since the visual support and resistance lines I've been playing with have not worked very well.

Today's pivot is 83.23 based on yesterdays hi +lo + close divided by 3.  S1 is 82.66 and S2 is 81.71.

With the low volume open I decided to watch these levels for fun and see if there is a bounce.  I bought SSO when SPY was at 81.78 after the first bounce off S2 (I did not figure SSO's pivot numbers because it isn't a pure index and is figured on derivitive of the SPY.)
