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.

Here we have 2 different Anchored VWAP indicator for ThinkorSwim. Feel free to test both out and use any that fits your trading style.

#START STUDY

#linus, 2014-03-10, v0.1
#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.
