@vegasfoster, here is the stdy file and a few screen shots.

I'm trying to get the VWAP to reset for cash/after hours session, but it appears to only reset once. I could live with that if the once was for cash session.

I think this is what you are looking for, set the times to the start of each session.

Oops spoke to soon.

The last bar is always in 'reset' or 'new session mode'. See screen shot above, you will see the bands aren't horizontal but rather closed in to the current bar Close price.

I dunno, it's not doing it on mine and I've tried various combinations of times in the indicator and session times and can't reproduce the error. Can you show me your settings for both the sessions and indicator again? I did note the minute range should be 0 to 59, not 1 to 60, which I will fix, but I can't see that's causing any problems.

It is working properly now. I think it was because when I posted it was actually just starting a new session, I wasn't paying attention to the exact time I posted.

Thanks again.
