ZigZag Smart Trend [TradingFinder] Major & Minor Structured Wave



Zigzag is a lagging indicator; this indicator identifies points on a price chart that have more significant changes than its previous wave and then by connecting these lines to each other, it assists traders in trend detection.

This indicator reduces random price fluctuations and attempts to make the primary price trend clearer.


Pivots are points where the price chart changes direction. Pivots, also called reversal points, form when supply and demand forces dominate one another.

Different types of technical analysis pivots can be introduced into two categories, minor pivots, and major pivots, each of which has a specific meaning in analysis.

Major Pivot: These pivots actually indicate major changes in the direction of the chart and occur at the end of trends. Analysts seeking to reach the primary analysis focus more on major pivot points. In fact, most technical analysis tools are examined and determined based on major pivots.

Minor Pivot: This type of pivot focuses more on small and subsidiary points and directions. Therefore, it occurs at the end of corrections. Analysts focusing on minor pivots represent small trends, and it should be noted that minor pivots are not suitable for use in primary technical tools.

How to identify minor and major pivots:

Minor pivots are pivots formed between two major pivots and fail to break the opposite major pivot.

Major pivots are pivots that have either successfully broken the opposite pivot or have moved more than the previous pivot of the same type.
