The VWAP indicator is our version of the popular Volume-Weighted Average Price indicator.
The VWAP is the ratio between the value traded (price multiplied by the number of volume traded) and the total volume traded over a specific time period. As a result, it measures the average price of the instrument much better than the simple moving average.
Although there are many ways to use the VWAP, most investors use it to calculate the daily average.
Many traders use VWAP bands in the same way as Bollinger Bands. You can look for reverse trades on the second and third standard deviations from the VWAP. Combined with price action or candle patterns, you can achieve excellent results. Of course, the VWAP indicator can also be used for benchmarking, as many investors are doing.
