Can someone please share the thinkscript to create a moving volume weighted average price (MVWAP) indicator? Thanks

Thanks for your reply but I thought the VWMA (volume weighted moving average) was different from the MVWAP (moving volume weighted average price) in that vwma is a moving average that takes volume into account where as mvwap is a moving average based on the end of day vwap values. I tried to do a search for MVWAP but couldn't find any results.

Here is a link that talks about the mvwap indicator I'm referring to-

Is there a way to turn this into a multi-timeframe indicator, so that I can look at the daily values plotted onto any intraday charts without changing the values? for example I found this thinkscript that allows me to plot the values from a daily simple moving average onto any intraday charts without changing the values.

input Period = aggregationPeriod.day;
input AvgType = averageType.SIMPLE;
input Length = 9;
input priceclose = close;

plot AVG = MovingAverage(AvgType, close(period = Period), Length);
AVG.setdefaultcolor(color.white);plot Data = close;

I tried copying and altering some of this script onto the MVWAP script but I'm still new and couldn't find a way to get it to work. Thank you
 
@jordan Normally, you would be on the right track and kudos for figuring out the logic. But MVWAP is a custom definition. Multi-timeframe logic can only constructed on built-in TOS definitions. So we would need to perform the MTF calculation on the underlying VWAP definition. But we can't do that in this case because the VWAP is already defined by time. It is limited to (Daily Weekly Monthly).
I did change the logic on the MVWAP so that you can choose (daily, weekly, or monthly) but those are the only choices available.
