Volume Weighted Reversal Bands
How To Use
This is a vwap & vwma hybrid with upper & lower deviation bands that provide excellent price channels and reversal areas. It can be used on lower & higher timeframes, just increase the deviation % for higher timeframes. Try out the 1 minute timeframe with .5% deviation for great scalping levels.
Here is the calculation used for the main line.
(VWMA100 + VWMA500 + VWMA1000 + VWAP ) / 4
So it combines 3 VWMAs with the VWAP and divides that number by 4 to give us a moving average. Then we add new levels above and below that moving average to get our channels. The channels are separated by the % deviation you choose in the settings. For tighter bands, lower the percentage deviation and for wider bands, increase the percentage deviation.
The fattest line in the middle is the main moving average and you can expect price to regularly return to this level. The thick lines are the main moving average plus or minus the percentage deviation you have set. There are 10 levels in each direction from the main moving average. The is also a thin short term moving average as well with a custom calculation. It takes 4 different length moving averages that are weighted and 4 more that are volume weighted and divides the total by 8. The lines will be green when price is above the line and red when price is below the line. The thin white line is the VWAP on its own.
These lines will act as dynamic support and resistance so you can scalp them back and forth. These levels work so well because they are volume weighted and the algos hedge their positions back and forth constantly.
For best results, use this indicator on tickers with the highest volume and trading action as the price will stick to these levels better when the big money players are hedging. Some great tickers for this indicator are APPL, SPY , BTC , ETH.
All colors and linewidths can be customized in the settings easily as well as turning off the VWAP or short moving average and adjusting the percentage deviation for the channels.
This indicator can be used on all timeframes.
