Watchlist - VWAP Crossover

Hello,

I've looked through the threads and can't seem to find this request, which I thought would be very popular.

I'm looking to add a column on my watchlist that shows when prices crosses VWAP within the last bar only.

  • crosses VWAP, column turns green (or says "X", or something like that)
  • if price has not crossed VWAP within the last bar, it remains blank.
I'm only interested in the crossover - I don't want the indicator to show me if price is above or below VWAP.

My thinking was that as long as I get the alert, I can decide to go long, short, or stay pat. But I use VWAP as my main indicator so knowing when my stocks cross it is very beneficial to me.

I then analyze the trend, level 2 data to decide what to do.


Any help would be appreciated!

I think that you should include some sort of momentum indicator as well. It's one thing to cross-over, it's another to have enough fuel in the trend in order to make a it worth while to do a trade.

Sure a stock may have done a VWAP cross over, but how would you know it's not going bounce back under over or over the VWAP line without another indicator?

Sounds fair. Make sure to use other indicators as well.

I use VWAP & this study that I made.
