Market Stats Indicator V1.0 with VWAP and POC from JPerl Thread 5 *
This indicator plots VWAP along with Standard Deviation Bands. It also plots a rolling intraday POC along with it.

Then the Skew, current size of ONE Standard Deviation, and the percentage ratio of skew to ONE Standard Deviation are all calculated. These are then displayed in the upper left hand corner.

General idea is based on Skew and trading around that. Skew is the relationship between the VWAP and the POC. A small skew implies the market is currently in a ranging environment. A larger skew implies the market is trending as the POC and VWAP are separating.

Positive Skew occurs when the VWAP is above the POC.
Negative Skew occurs when the VWAP is below the POC.
Symetrical Skew occurs when the VWAP ~= POC

Price below VWAP implies downtrend.
Price above VWAP implies uptrend.

The skewToStandard Deviation % is the ratio of the skew to the size of ONE standard Deviation. I put that there as a possible way to monitor how the skew may be stacking up to current volatility, i.e. the current standard Deviations....which is the distance between the bands. This should be a better measurement that a fixed number, as it is tied to volatility. The higher the %, the smaller the skew, the less likely a trend is in place.

I do not use these things and coded for a buddy. Details of how to trade them can be found at HERE.

I also have a pdf 'cliff notes' summary of the thread, but I can only seem to post one attachment with this indicator. If you want it, send a pm and I'll send it to you.

After some real time monitoring, I will update the next version with more customization for the end user such as more plotting options, color bars, trend etc.......

Notes, please read:
  • This indicator is an early release, I will update with new version in the near future
  • The newer version will have more plotting and display options
  • Also included will be a buffer to decide how much seperation to determine trending vs chop
  • Right now, the START TIME for the POC is there, but the START TIME for the VWAP is NOT. By default it starts and ends at the END of the US session, which is what most people will use I imagine. Will update in next release.

I had this up earlier but realized it didn't export from NT properly. I had someone else test it and this one should work fine.
