Mean reversion strategy which lets you set a VWAP length, ATR length - then creates signal when distance closing price from VWAP is greater than ATR x a multiplier which you set

I would suggest using this on intraday chart only. Timeframes between 5m to 15m would work. But feel free to test it out on your own and choose what's best for you.

## calculate period-based VWAP

input cumulativePeriod = 24;

def typicalPrice = (high + low + close) / 3;
def typicalPriceVolume = typicalPrice * volume;
def cumulativeTypicalPriceVolume = sum(typicalPriceVolume, cumulativePeriod);
def cumulativeVolume = sum(volume, cumulativePeriod);
def vwapValue = cumulativeTypicalPriceVolume / cumulativeVolume;

## set criteria for ATR distance from VWAP

input trulength = 12;  # ATR Length
def vwop = vwapValue;
def tru = atr(trulength);

input ATRMulti = 4; # ATR Multiple
def long = (vwop-close) > tru* ATRMulti;
def short = (close-vwop) > tru* ATRMulti;

plot buy = long;
buy.SetPaintingStrategy(PaintingStrategy.BOOLEAN_ARROW_UP);
buy.AssignValueColor(color.green);
plot sell = short;
sell.SetPaintingStrategy(PaintingStrategy.BOOLEAN_ARROW_DOWN);
sell.AssignValueColor(color.red);

interesting study, Question, if running on a intra day time frame why have a look back on the vwap other than the days start?

@inthefutures Good question, I just converted it based on the original script from TradingView. Do you recommend a different setting?

@BenTen For some reason I cannot get the arrows to display. I copied the script and I see the code in there for the arrows but they do not display. Thanks

The green up arrow is a rare unicorn. Red arrows are also rare, just not as rare. You should be able to find them on all timeframes, if you load enough history.

If you want to ensure that you loaded the study correctly.
Look at $BRO on the 5D5m chart. You should see these down arrows:

Are these signals basically when it bounces off vwap?

This is not plotting an arrow triggered by a bounce off VWAP. The arrow, as I understand it, is plotting once the close has reached a distance from the volume weighted average price that is equal to a multiple of the average true range that you specify.
