Anchored VWAP

Anchored VWAP or Custom VWAP tool allows drawing a VWAP line within a specified range or from a specified starting point.

Specify the start point on the chart and anchored VWAP will draw a line to the current moment. Also, you can specify the endpoint for the line, set Standard Deviation and Maximum Permissible Deviation.

By clicking on the "Gear" icon, you can customize the settings of the selected VWAP

Settings of Custom VWAP (Anchored VWAP)
  • VWAP line — set the main line type, its thickness and color

  • Data type — set the data for VWAP calculation: Ticks or Current TF. Ticks will use tick data for VWAP calculation and will take much more time for loading Current TF will use Bar data from the current selected Timeframe of your chart. It will use Price type data and multiple it to Bar Volume.

  • Price Type — select the price for the Current TF data type (Open, High, Low, Close, HL/2, HLC/3, OHLC/4)

  • Standard Deviation Bands. When the parameter is active, the standard deviation lines up and down from VWAP will be additionally calculated on the chart. Specify the number of standard deviations in the "Value" field and colors

  • Maximum Permissible Deviation (MPD). MPD is similar to the standard deviation but is calculated as (VWAP period high - VWAP period low)/2.

  • Points coordinates — defines the starting point for custom VWAP

  • Visible on specified timeframes — this setting allows you to specify on which timeframes VWAP will be displayed.
