I still can't get there.

I simply want the outer bands to be dark, inner bands light. In other words, inner bands = normal (as in minimal shading against background or no shading against background) and outer bands = not-normal (as in intense shading against background).

No matter what I try, the opposite is achieved. I tried multiple VWAP instances, no change.

I also tried white background chart. No change.

Due to time constraints, please do not PM me if your question can be resolved or answered on the forum.

Need help?
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.

Mike, here's a study collection using 5 instances of the VWAP to color the 4 bands and show the VWAP line.

Put the attached in your Sierra Chart \Data folder, click on Analysis >> VWAP Bands-

This cannot be done with one instance of the VWAP because of the order of the subgraphs, as each subgraph over-paints the one above. The same is true for the order of studies in the Studies to Graph list. To get around this with the VWAP study, each band is colored with its own instance of the VWAP study, in reverse order in the Studies to Graph list, so that the narrower bands over-paint the wider ones.

The colors I chose are best viewed on a black background chart.

Thank you very much @tomgilb. And now, I present the chart which is a work in progress regarding the colors.
