VWAP Date anchored

VWAP Date anchored

Another version of the VWAP indicator, this time you can set the start of its calculation with a date in YYYYMMDD format (modify it in the indicator settings). Set it on the last gap a stock on a daily timeframe will give you a good idea of the mean price since this particular day.

You also have the possibility to view or not the 3 upper and 3 lower standard deviation lines with a switch in the settings.

The VWAP formula is:

VWAP = Sum (Price[t] x Volume[t])  / Sum(Volume[t])

    Hi Nicolas,
    I couldn’t find a better way to ask you my question. I have a problem of finding a way to rerun a bar index of highest or lowest criteria. For example I want to know what is bar index of this statement highest [250](rsi[14](close)). Is it possible to get the bar index of such statement. Just to make it clear, I want to know what bar number that maximum or minimum RSI has happened in the last 52 weeks?
    Thanks in advance for your help.

      Sorry but this question has nothing to deal with this indicator, it belongs to a specific support to a new topic you need to open in the ProBuilder section of the forums. Thank you.

    Hello Nicholas,

    I am super excited to see you having built this script (and @jaysay requesting it)! I assume he is a Brian Shannon scholar as am I. However, I am having difficulty creating this on the thinkorswim platform. I’m sure its a noob mistake, but my scripting knowledge is about nill. When I paste this script into thinkorswim, it replies with the error of “Invalid statement: // at 1:1”. When I remove the “//” of course I continually get similar errors. When I remove entire first two ‘paragraphs’ where these forward slashes occur, the script takes, but with no input ability (of course because the date settings you’ve created are removed. How can I get this thing to take?

    Hi! The indicator works perfect, but I can’t find a way to anchored the VWAP specify for each different ticker symbol. This VWAP has default settings like an moving average, eg. 200 days in every symbol, timeframe. I want the anchored VWAP to set different dates on different tickers. Is it possible? Thanks in advance!

    • Nicolas • 10/19/2017 #

      just change the starting date in the settings. The indicator does not have any predefined period as it uses the bars quantity elapsed since its first calculation, as per the VWAP formula.

    • Geons • 10/19/2017 #

      Not working because every change on VWAP not anchored on specific symbol. I want as a trend line is different for every ticker, not for all the same… Maybe this is not possible. Maybe must use drawing functions on code…

    • Nicolas • 10/19/2017 #

      Because you change the date in the code it affects all charts. Download the itf file from this page and use the settings from the indicator window and don’t change anything in the code.

  4. Geons • 10/19/2017 #

    No, I change the start date in settings, not in code. The problem is still here. I have installed the .itf file. Don’t know why..

    • Nicolas • 10/19/2017 #

      Because your charts are linked together in the same group. Just unlink them.

    Hi Nicolas,
    I´ve tried to add this script. Nonetheless, a message warning an error on programming code appears
    “the following variable is undefined: startDate, viewSD”
    I´m using the format yyyymmdd. Also I defined to show each standard deviation (1) .


    Thanks in advance

    • Nicolas • 10/19/2017 #

      Download the itf file and import it into the platform, or remove the // before the 2 variables names you mentionned, in your code.

    Thank you very much!!

    Hello. Firstly, It doesn’t really replicate what Brian Shannon uses on his videos. Anyone has compared it and got the same ? And second It displays the anchored vwap on another window. can it be in the same window as the price? Anyone got any luck with it? Thank you for your help in advance.

    • Nicolas • 10/19/2017 #

      Sorry i don’t know who is Brian Shannon?! If you want to get the indicator applied on the price, apply it on the price. Use the wrench on the left upper side of the price chart.

    Does look different esp when anchoring from the high… https://www.trendspider.com/blog/trendspider-user-guide-exploring-the-anchored-vwap-with-brian-shannon/

  9. PeterClothier • 10/19/2017 #

    Hi, is it possible to alter the SD setting to SD of say 0.5, 1.5 etc in the code? Thanks (Prorealtime user)

  10. PeterClothier • 10/19/2017 #

    @Bel. I was comparing to Trendspider too. I tried altering the code on Line 35 and Line 36 by adding a smaller the 1 SD to make it as similar as possible
    SDup1 = vwap+sd+0.45
    SDlw1 = vwap-sd+0.45.
    I then unticked the other lines. It makes it a much closer match to Trendspider, using MELI as an example from a youtube video.

    Bonjour Nicolas. Avant tout merci beaucoup pour votre aide et cet indicateur. J’aimerais savoir s’il est possible d’apporter une modification à cet indicateur, afin de pouvoir ajouter des heures et minutes. Celapermet de positionner l’anchored VWAP a des bougie précises (gap, point bas, breakout etc)
    Où dois-je faire la demande, ici ou j’ouvre un post dans le forum ? merci

    Hi Nicolas. I am really late to the party about this post but I have a question. I am an absolute newbie when it comes to coding and this is the first indicator that I have tried to import to PRT. I would like the indicator to show on my charts and it doesn’t, instead it displays underneath the chart. I know it’s not meant to be like this, from the illustration. Can you help me?

    • Nicolas • 111 days ago #

      Add it on the price chart with the wrench at the upper left side of price chart.
