VWAP Bands

Volume-Weighted Average Price with Bands

VWAP is the volume-weighted average price for a futures contract plotted as a line on the price chart. The calculation is the sum of traded volume, multiplied by the price, divided by the sum of the traded volume.

This study has a number of uses. It provides the current volume-weighted average price for the trading day or the trading session.

We have added Standard Deviation Bands to the VWAP indicator. VWAP2 has an upper and a lower band where VWAP3 has two upper and two lower bands. The Standard Deviation Factor of these bands can be set in the parameters.
