@vegasfoster, building on the idea discussed in a recent webinar, would you please modify this to allow the user to specify the number of 'days back' to build the vwap from? The idea discussed in the webinar was that a two day, or three day vwap may be more relevant than a 1-day (current session) vwap.

Much appreciated!!

Mike

1) Stop changing things. No new indicators, charts, or methods. Be consistent with what is in front of you first.
2) Start a journal and post to it daily with the trades you made to show your strengths and weaknesses.
3) Set goals for yourself to reach daily. Make them about how you trade, not how much money you make.
4) Accept responsibility for your actions. Stop looking elsewhere to explain away poor performance.
5) Where to start as a trader? Watch this webinar and read this thread for hundreds of questions and answers.

I thought this would be easy enough, but I'm having problems. If I try to set the bar index for the start of the calculation outside the current day or evening session, it is reverting to the index at the beginning of the week regardless of the index I'm using. I'm going to try break down how the pivot point variable indicator works and apply the same method, but it may take me a couple days cuz I'm slow.

Good idea. @aslan - could you make a VWAP Bands study with 3 deviations that allows the user to select how many 'days back' are included in the study, instead of the normal current session only?

Mike:
I would like to try runningvwapbands - but I can not get it into Sierra Charts Studies
1. I tried moving dll into Data folder, but when I go to Sierra Chart Analysis I can not see any runningvwapbands study available
2. I looked under 'custom user studies', there is an add button that I could use if I could find runningvwapbands in the list
3. last avenue seems to be paste the source code into Sierra Chart and build a dll using Sierra Chart tools.
4. I have posted to Sierra Chart Forum, but seems like my post got deleted - I do not know what is going on there. They have a new button which I need to click to attach "resolved", "user discussion", etc to each post, which seems to be causing me a problem.

1. Make sure the dll is in the data folder. You are not going to find it in the Analysis menu. Analysis menu is for study collections (templates).

2. Hit "F6", then click "Add Custom Study...", select "RunningVwapBands" from the list on the left side, then click the "Add" button.
