※ VWAP fused by v2v
What's new with this VWAP indicator?
☛ Uses Average Range ( ADR/AWR/AMR ) and
☛ Average True Range ( ATR ) values for Shifted VWAP Deviation.
☛ Average Price line = (High + Low) /2
☛ It includes v2v's update speed control feature.
☑ Key Takeaways:
☛ A rising VWAP, and/or the price above the VWAP line, means the price may reflect uptrend move or likely in bullish sentiment.
☛ A rising VWAP, and/or the price below the VWAP line, means the price may reflect downtrend move or likely in bearish sentiment.
☛ Rallies with a declining VWAP are treated as bounces which may likely to fail.
☛ Be more aware of VWAP's direction than closing session price if it is above or below the VWAP within a session or two (e.g. Asian, Euro or U.S. session).
☛ Like any support & resistance level, the more they are tested, the more likely that it may fail.
☛ Don't rely on VWAP exclusively to determine a trend, since it is only showing a historical average, and not what is happening currently or in the future.
☛ Investors may use VWAP to assess the price they paid for a security/instrument throughout a particular session (e.g. Asian/Europe/NY, daily...etc.), if the price they bought at is higher than the VWAP, then they may have overpaid. If it is less than VWAP, then they purchased shares at a good price.
☛ The VWAP began as a tool for trading shares/stock on daily setup only. However, in these times there were other investors or traders started to use this more recently with financial instruments like Currency Futures or Forex pairs as some of the modern algorithms began to optimize this tool to integrate with their trading strategy or algorithms.
☛ Traders and analysts use the VWAP to eliminate the noise that occurs throughout a particular session, so they can gauge what prices buyers and sellers are really trading at. The VWAP gives traders insight into how a security trades for that day and determines, for some, a good price at which to buy or sell.
✦ If the price is below the VWAP... and the price is rallying back into the VWAP, then it may act as resistance.
✦ If the price is above the VWAP... and the price pullback into the VWAP, then it may act as support.
✦ Wait for the market to start to get a move and have it bounce once or twice off of the VWAP. Once that happens, you know that the market has addressed the VWAP (by checking on a 5-minute up to 30-minute chart).
✦ When the price tries to break above or below the VWAP line, there is usually a battle between buyers and sellers. If the price tries to break above or below the VWAP level multiple times throughout the day, traders and analysts can see that it is a good price to either buy or sell. However, some short-term traders like to wait for one side to lose the battle and either go long on a break above the VWAP or short on a break below the VWAP.
☑ Limitations of Using Volume Weighted Average Price (VWAP)
While some institutions may prefer to buy when the price of a security is below the VWAP, or sell when it is above, VWAP is not the only factor to consider. In strong uptrends, the price may continue to move higher for many days, without dropping below the VWAP at all, or only occasionally. Therefore, waiting for the price to fall below VWAP could mean a missed opportunity if prices are rising quickly.
☑ Other VWAP trading methodologies
With the above limitations, you may use some other VWAP trading methodologies being used by other traders to minimized missed opportunities or even better... a high probability setup.
✦ MIDAS approach by Dr. Paul Levine
Use the VWAP approach by Jperl (If I'm not mistaken, his name is Jerry Perl), together with Volume Profile indicator.
Others use the anchored approach (sometimes using two VWAP indicators) wherein it anchored the VWAP based on the last significant move or based on sessions (NY session, London session, Asian session...)

☛ Now, best use with Volumes on Main Chart indicator - recommended for indicator trigger/update action
✔ Dynamic Zones ─ The Dynamic Zone indicator is best explained by describing how it solves a common trading problem.
Extreme investing employs the use of oscillators to exploit tradable trends in the market. This style of investing follows a very simple form of logic: only enter the market when an oscillator has moved far above or below traditional trading levels. However, these indicator driven systems, lack the ability to evolve with the market because they use fixed buy and sell zones. Traders typically use one set of buy and sell zones for a bull market and substantially different zones for a bear market.
Herein lies the problem. Once traders begin introducing their market opinions into trading equations, by changing the zones, they negate the system's mechanical nature. The objective is to have a system automatically define its own buy and sell zones and thereby profitably trade in any market -- bull or bear. Dynamic Zones offer a solution to the problem of fixed buy and sell zones for any indicator driven systems.
✔ Jurik Filters, Phase, and Smoothing
This TDI version uses JMA's (Jurik Research Moving Average) phase and smoothing calculation. Have you noticed how moving averages add some lag (delay) to your signals? ... especially when price gaps up or down in a big move, and you are waiting for your moving average to catch up? Wait no more! JMA eliminates this problem forever and gives you the best of both worlds: low lag and smooth lines.
Ideally, you would like a filtered signal to be both smooth and lag-free. Lag causes delays in your trades, and increasing lag in your indicators typically result in lower profits. In other words, latecomers get what's left on the table after the feast has already begun. The JMA's improved timing and smoothness will astound you.
JMA is a powerful adaptive tracker that can smooth time series data with a very small lag, no overshoots and no oscillations. The algorithm is stable and avoids the complexities of neural networks. JMA delivers the best all-around performance for smoothness, accuracy, and timeliness.
✔ Hull Moving Average
There are many types of moving averages, the most basic being the Simple Moving Average (SMA). Of all the moving averages the SMA lags price the most. The Exponential and Weighted Moving Averages were developed to address this lag by placing more emphasis on more recent data. The Hull Moving Average (HMA), developed by Allan Hull, is an extremely fast and smooth moving average. In fact, the HMA almost eliminates lag altogether and manages to improve smoothing at the same time.
With TDZ indicator combined with Hull MA variation with Jurik filters, and phase & smoothing that ultimately eliminates lagging.
✔ RSI-Trend Strength Index (RSX)
RSI is a very popular technical indicator because it takes into consideration market speed, direction, and trend uniformity. However, its widely criticized drawback is its noisy (jittery) appearance. The RSX retains all the useful features of RSI, but with one important exception: the noise is gone with no added lag.
✔ Vertical Horizontal Filter (VHF)
Vertical Horizontal Filter (VHF) was created by Adam White to identify trending and ranging markets. VHF measures the level of trend activity, similar to ADX in the Directional Movement System. Trend indicators can then be employed in trending markets and momentum indicators in ranging markets.
✔ Deviation-Scaled Moving Average (DSMA)
The new DSMA made by John Ehlers and featured in the July 2018 issue of TASC magazine. The DSMA is a data smoothing technique that acts as an exponential moving average with a dynamic smoothing coefficient. The smoothing coefficient is automatically updated based on the magnitude of price changes. In the Deviation-Scaled Moving Average, the standard deviation from the mean is chosen to be the measure of this magnitude. The resulting indicator provides substantial smoothing of the data even when price changes are small while quickly adapting to these changes.
✔ RSI & RSX haDelta
haDelta is a simple formula originally developed and published by Mr. Dan Valcu. The idea behind haDelta is to quantify HA candles. By doing this, one can measure momentum and this is very important when you use haDelta for reversals. It measures the difference between HA Close and HA Open. Caution: High sensitivity if used.
✔ Divergence - Regular & Hidden divergence
☛ Don't trade with divergence alone... You may need to validate this with your own proven trading edge.
※ Volumes on Main Chart indicator
This indicator is a Fused version of the following indicators... initial version of volumes on the main chart by mladen, and Paul Hayes Scalper volatility indicator ported from cTrader platform.
Added Fused functions & features:
☛ volumes & volatility alerts with optional user-defined values.
☛ auto-adjusted zoom in/out for volume bars and location
☛ automated average volume bars based on daily, weekly and yearly with optional user-defined values
☛ auto-adjusted volume bars thickness
☛ with a hidden navigational switch to hide/unhide volume bars and
☛ added extra .wav alert sound files
Most of these indicators required the Volume on Main Chart indicator wherein it acts like the global control center (indi ON & OFF). Sorry, that is what it is, designed to work with each other. Like for example TDZ indicator... the Volume on Main Chart trigger the update process once the volatility spikes up based on the last average pip count (e.g. from three previous bars ─ set TF or example 1-minute candle). And this besides from the normal trigger of set time in minutes or on a new bar.
☝ If this system/indicators don't seem to work on your end or found it useless, simply move on as there are literally thousands of indicators/systems out there... and this system/indicators may not be ready for you or is not for you!
✌ On how to use the system effectively will depend on your own utmost keen observation (or greater experience), due diligence, understanding, and prerogative. ; )─
☄ Ideally... This system is best to use from H4 time frame or higher with a Trend following strategy. You may use this system with Volume/Market profile indicator although the Pivot Fibs plus indicator already have the PVP (Peak Volume Price ) ─without the horizontal volume bars. Having said that, this system can be used with lower TF too. More so when using VWAP indicator ; )─ But that's not all! Swing Traders can use the TDZ's dynamic floating levels or zones (band high & low with midpoint) that may present an OB/S view ─just like the regular TDI, it is recommended to use from H4 time frame or higher. Oh wait! Scalping? The Heiken Ashi - Average Price Bars (APB) with Price Action Channel (PAC) may act like the cherries on top or icing on the cake in terms of Scalping strategy. Overall, if you don't want to consider all the above... Simply use the Neural Network HMA-DSMA indicator... that requires a little amount of thinking ; )─
I'm using this system once I have made my own or perceived fundamental bias/understanding. It helps me to identify the Price inflection points, trend confluence, and/or chart structure for proper or well-defined entries and exit points.
✍ Note to Self: “While no methodology works in every instance . . . I have never seen anything so consistent ” ─ just like this system ; )─
☢ There are no guarantees that all these indicators shared here work perfectly or without errors. Hence, use at your own risk; I accept no liability for system damage, financial losses and even loss of life. ; )─
