Some say using the ETH session is irrelevant to US markets because price movements are at the mercy of international traders. Others say some of the best information starts with what happened overnight.

Should VWAP in futures (example: ES) with or without standard deviations be calculated via just the RTH session or both the ETH and RTH?

If you don't know, please don't vote!

There's no selection for both....

been looking more at rth last few days to get better visuals... think it helps (as I am starting to look at automation a bit)

I noticed VWAP is calculated differently for NT8 vs Trading View and I heard institutions use one that shows like Trading View's VWAP where the session restart happens at 20:00 (8pm). Both NT8's OrderFlow VWAP and MZPack's VWAP restart at Midnight and 16:00. Is there a way to make them restart only at 20:00 EST?

I use both (didn't vote.) ETH (at least in ES) is well respected, after about an hour or so the RTH VWAP begins to stabilize and is useful.
