Is there any objective rationale or mathematical reasoning behind the following formula for pivot points and intra day support and resistance levels? What are the underlying assumptions for the formula? It seems so random.

For example how come the pivot calculation does not take into account the open price, the volume etc.? Also how come the formula is the same regardless of the volatility of the stock?
