Previous Day, Week, and Month Technical Levels


In trading, particularly in the volatile cryptocurrency market, understanding historical levels is crucial. Previous day, week, and month levels — including open, high, low, and equilibrium (average of high and low) — are key technical indicators that traders often use as potential support and resistance levels. These levels can provide high reward-to-risk opportunities and help traders make informed decisions.

What are Previous Day, Week, and Month Levels?


These levels refer to the open, high, low, and equilibrium (EQ) points from the previous trading day, week, and month. The equilibrium is calculated as the average of the high and low prices.


The rationale behind using these levels lies in their ability to highlight significant price points that have previously acted as either support or resistance. They are often closely watched by a large number of traders, thereby increasing their relevance.


  • Daily Levels: Calculated from the previous day's trading data.

  • Weekly Levels: Derived from the last week's trading range.

  • Monthly Levels: Based on the previous month's price action.

Why are They Important?

Psychological Significance

These levels often hold psychological importance for traders and can influence market behavior. For instance, a previous month's high can act as a psychological barrier or target.

Decision-Making Tool

They serve as a guide for placing entry and exit points, setting stop-loss orders, and identifying potential reversal points in the market.

How Can They be Used?

Support and Resistance

These levels can act as support in a rising market or resistance in a falling market. Traders might look for buying opportunities near the previous day's low or selling opportunities near the previous day's high.

Breakout and Reversal Trading

A breakout above a previous high or a drop below a previous low can signal a strong market move. Conversely, a failure to break these levels might indicate a potential reversal.

Specific Use Cases

Trend Confirmation

  • Bullish Scenario: If the price consistently closes above the previous day's or week's high, it might indicate a strong bullish trend.

  • Bearish Scenario: Conversely, closing below the previous day's or week's low could signal a bearish trend.

High Reward-to-Risk Trade Setups

  • Traders might find high reward-to-risk opportunities near these levels. For example, entering a long position near the previous week's low with a tight stop-loss can offer a favorable risk-reward ratio if the level holds as support.

Intraday Pivot Points

  • For intraday traders, previous day levels can act as pivot points. Trading strategies might involve buying near the previous day's EQ level or selling near it, depending on the market's overall trend.

Swing Trading

  • Swing traders might use previous week or month levels to set longer-term trade targets. For instance, buying near a previous month's low with an aim to sell near the high, or vice versa.
