I use VWAP and Advanced indicators on 12 TOS windows on my screen at a time. Since the screens are small the yellow, blue, white, pink title bars(?) in the upper left are in the way. Can I delete them?

Without a screenshot, I am assuming you are talking about Price Labels on the chart? Edit the study and add a "#" in front of the AddLabel(XX) lines like you see below to comment out those lines of code:

#AddLabel(XX)

Since you are modifying the code, the changes should reflect in all the charts in your grid. If this is not what you are looking for please post a screenshot and/or post the code here.

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.

VWAP Anchored_v02

Rich (BB code):
#START STUDY
#Anchored_VWAP2
#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.

Without a screenshot, I am assuming you are talking about Price Labels on the chart? Edit the study and add a "#" in front of the AddLabel(XX) lines like you see below to comment out those lines of code:

@BenTen hey is there any way to change the script to only anchor it for yesterday to today (2day vwap)?
Thanks

@thinky Most likely because these indicators require more than just a single day of data.
hi ben, a quick question about the Anchored VWAP, is the signal delayed? what is need to happen to the arrow appear. just a bit confused, thank you very much

@FOTM_8888 Yes, the arrows (signals) are delayed. I recommend using the intraday anchored vwap version.

@FOTM_8888 If you look into the original concept and idea of Anchored VWAP, it should not have any signals at all.

Is there a way that we can scan for the stocks based on Arrow up or Arrow down 15 min or 5 min time frame?
Thanks all!!

@mdtn Like I mentioned in comment #91, the arrows are delayed. By the time it shows up on your scanner, the move already happened.

So I have an anchored VWAP code and was wondering how I would also incorporate the standard deviation in it. If anyone has any code, links, or advice comment below please

Code:
input AnchorDate = 0511;
input AnchorTime = 0930;

def AnchorDate1 = 20200000 + AnchorDate;

def PostAnchorDate = if GetYYYYMMDD() >= AnchorDate1 then 1 else 0;
def PostAnchorTime = if SecondsFromTime(AnchorTime) >= 0 then 1 else 0;

plot AnchorVWAP = TotalSum(if PostAnchorDate and PostAnchorTime then ((high + low + close) / 3) * (volume) else 0) / TotalSum(if PostAnchorDate and PostAnchorTime then volume else 0);

AnchorVWAP.SetStyle(Curve.FIRM);
AnchorVWAP.SetLineWeight(1);
AnchorVWAP.SetDefaultColor(Color.CYAN);

I know this sounds crazy but hear me out. I would like to color code the intraday VWAP according to Fractal Energy. When FE falls below .5, I would like the VWAP to be Color A and then Color B for all other levels. Essentially the same way a Hull MA shifts colors. I've attempted to recreate what I am searching for in the screenshot below. When FE falls below .5, VWAP changes to blue. Tried to do it myself but couldn't find a solution (I have no idea what I'm doing). I really hope this is possible. Any help is greatly appreciated🤙

I have already merged the two here: https://tos.mx/6XSCJKd

#yakBro intraday anchoredVWAP excluding extended hours volume 2019

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.SetLineWeight(2);


anchorVWAP.DefineColor("Up", GetColor(1));
anchorVWAP.DefineColor("Down", GetColor(0));
anchorVWAP.AssignValueColor(if gamma < .5 then anchorVWAP.Color("Down") else anchorVWAP.Color("Up"));
