Anchored VWAP indicator can useful for intraday trading. It can also be used on any timeframe including hourly, daily, and weekly. VWAP can be a great tool for analyzing the market, especially for day traders.

A strong uptrend is signaled when the price consistently stays above the VWAP and the VWAP itself is sloping upward. In a downtrend, the price tends to stay below the VWAP, which is also sloping downward.

When the price strays too far from the VWAP, there is an expectation that it will eventually move back towards the average.

Here we have different Anchored VWAP indicators for ThinkorSwim. Feel free to test them out and use any that fits your trading style.

### Anchored VWAP with adjustable date and time

Code:

```
input anchorDate = 20200422;
input anchorTime = 2030;
def tradeStartEST = 0930;
def tradeEndEST = 1600;
def inPeriod = if SecondsTillTime(tradeStartEST) <= 0 and SecondsTillTime(tradeEndEST) > 0 then 1 else 0;
def revisedDate = if SecondsTillTime(anchorTime)<=0 and !inPeriod then anchorDate+1 else if SecondsTillTime(anchorTime)<=0 and inPeriod then anchorDate else anchorDate;
def postAnchorDate = if GetYYYYMMDD() >= revisedDate then 1 else 0;
def postAnchorTime = if SecondsTillTime(anchorTime) <= 0 then 1 else 0;
plot anchoredVWAP = TotalSum(if postAnchorDate and postAnchorTime then ((high+low+close)/3)*(volume) else 0)/TotalSum(if postAnchorDate and postAnchorTime then volume else 0);
anchoredVWAP.setStyle(Curve.Firm);
anchoredVWAP.SetLineWeight(3);
anchoredVWAP.SetDefaultColor(Color.Cyan);
#AddChartBubble(yes,close, revisedDate, color.yellow);
```

### Intraday Anchored VWAP

link for my intraday anchored VWAP script (shared by yakbrodev)

Code:

```
#yakBro intraday anchoredVWAP excluding extended hours volume 2019
declare hide_on_daily;
def anchorTime = 0930;
def anchorEnd = 1600;
input ShowTodayOnly = yes;
def Today = if GetDay() == GetLastDay() then 1 else 0;
def postAnchorTime = if SecondsFromTime(anchorTime) >= 0 then 1 else 0;
def endAchorTime = if SecondsTillTime(anchorEnd) >= 0 then 1 else 0;
#plot anchorVWAP for intraday
def volumeSum = compoundValue(1, if postAnchorTime and endAchorTime then volumeSum[1] + volume else 0, volume);
def volumeVwapSum = compoundValue(1, if postAnchorTime and endAchorTime then volumeVwapSum[1] + volume * vwap else 0, volume * vwap);
plot anchorVWAP = if ShowTodayOnly and !Today then Double.NaN else if anchorTime then volumeVwapSum / volumeSum else Double.NaN;
anchorVWAP.setStyle(Curve.Firm);
anchorVWAP.setDefaultColor(Color.light_ORANGE);
anchorVWAP.setlineWeight(2);

#10:24 linus: it carries over the previous pivot's lines for high, low and close. (it plots vwaps of the high, low and close that are reset each time a new pivot is found.)
#10:25 linus: i wrote it to experiment with vwap as stops. (the high and low vwaps that can be offset by the ticks input.)
#10:25 linus: but it should serve as an example of how to reset the vwaps based on a signal.
#10:35 linus: #hint: VWAP stops anchored off fractalTrader pivots.
#10:37 linus: the code calculates the pivots as PivH and PivL, and then restarts the high, low and close vwaps when it finds a new pivot. Otherwise it continues to calculate the high, low and close vwaps.
#10:37 linus: the dashed vwap plots are the saved from the previous pivot, and the solid vwap plots are since the last pivot.
