It is the mid point of the current day's hi and low for the regular session.

Ok, that makes sense, so that may adjust over the session correct? He also uses the VWAP true? So in Sierra I would be redrawing that manually correct?

Yes it will adjust especially Early on as the range expands.

The vwap should should have a start and end time that you can use. Use 8:30 to 3:15 Central and you should be good.

Volume By Price Dynamic Drawing Tool


Has anyone found this to be useful intra day? If so would you care to share your tactics?
It is one of the items that changes the fee per month and I am not sure that I need it at this point.

MP and VP are an essential part of the trader's toolbox, IMO.

Newer version of FT71cht. ?

Is there a newer version of the cht. file in post #10? I place the folder into sierra and it shows up in the chartbooks, just fails to open. Can someone guide me through this process. This is my first day using sierra. I've been missing out on some great options and tools by not using this platform. Thanks

I've downloaded and tried both chartbooks on this thread. The oldest one does not work in current version, the second one does. Regarding the first, it's only 16 KBytes, which seems very low to me (the second is 146 Kb).
