VWAP Based on Lookback Period for ThinkorSwim

i didnt know what to call this so i gave it this name, basically the point of this indicator is to tell you when the stock is trading based on the vwap of the last 50 bars, you can choose 21, 9, or whatever bars you want to look back, the cool thing about this indicator is that as time goes on its constantly moving with the current last 50 bars. the thing to keep in mind is that since price is moving and so is the wvap looking back will not help you to much i believe, the accurate thing that this will show you is the current price with the set current vwap with a lookback period. give it a try, or comment on what could be fixed about this indicator. i think the best ideas is when people share ideas.
