How To Compute Pivot Points in Golang?

To compute pivot points in Golang, you can use the following formula:

Pivot Point (P) = (High + Low + Close) / 3

Support and Resistance levels can be calculated using the following formulas:

Support 1 (S1) = (2 * P) - High Support 2 (S2) = P - (High - Low) Resistance 1 (R1) = (2 * P) - Low Resistance 2 (R2) = P + (High - Low)

Here is a sample Golang code that calculates pivot points:

 ``` 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15 16 17 18 19 20 21 22 23 24 25 26 27 28 29 30 31 32 33 34 ``` ```package main import ( "fmt" ) func calculatePivotPoints(high, low, close float64) (float64, float64, float64, float64) { pivot := (high + low + close) / 3 s1 := (2 * pivot) - high s2 := pivot - (high - low) r1 := (2 * pivot) - low r2 := pivot + (high - low) return pivot, s1, s2, r1, r2 } func main() { high := 100.0 low := 90.0 close := 95.0 pivot, s1, s2, r1, r2 := calculatePivotPoints(high, low, close) fmt.Printf("Pivot Point: %f ", pivot) fmt.Printf("Support 1: %f ", s1) fmt.Printf("Support 2: %f ", s2) fmt.Printf("Resistance 1: %f ", r1) fmt.Printf("Resistance 2: %f ", r2) } ```

You can modify the input values for high, low, and close in the main function to calculate pivot points for different data points.

The code provided will successfully compute pivot points and support/resistance levels in Golang. To adapt this code to your own use case, make sure to replace the sample high, low, and close variables with your own data points when calling the calculatePivotPoints function in the main function.

Remember, you need to have Golang installed on your system to compile and run this code. You can save this code to a .go file and execute it using the 'go run' command in your terminal to see the computed pivot points and levels for the provided data points.
