// C# usage syntax
IEnumerable<RollingPivotsResult> results =
  quotes.GetRollingPivots(windowPeriods, offsetPeriods, pointType);


windowPeriods int - Number of periods (W) in the evaluation window. Must be greater than 0 to calculate; but is typically specified in the 5-20 range.

offsetPeriods int - Number of periods (F) to offset the window from the current period. Must be greater than or equal to 0 and is typically less than or equal to W.

pointType PivotPointType - Type of Pivot Point. Default is PivotPointType.Standard

For example, a window of 8 with an offset of 4 would evaluate quotes like: W W W W W W W W F F F F C, where W is the window included in the Pivot Point calculation, and F is the distance from the current evaluation position C. A quotes with daily bars using W/F values of 20/10 would most closely match the month variant of the traditional Pivot Points indicator.

Historical quotes requirements

You must have at least W+F periods of quotes to cover the warmup periods.
