VWAP Plus | Volume Weighted Average Price | Support – Resistance | Technical Analysis | NinjaTrader 8 | Indicator
Volume-Weighted Average Price (VWAP) is the ratio of volume traded at price, to the total volume traded, over a particular time horizon. In finance, every single Transaction (Trade/Tick/Pip), of any given Product (Stocks/Futures/Forex) consists of three elements. The “Volume” (Quantity) of whatever it is being bought or sold, along with the “Price” and “Time” at which that took place. VWAP is calculated by adding up the sum of (price multiplied by volume) for every transaction (transaction price multiplied by the total volume traded of that transaction price), then dividing that by the overall total volume traded for the period of time your measuring.

VWAP is often used as a trading benchmark by investors who aim to be as passive as possible in their execution. Many pension and mutual funds fall into this category. The aim of using a VWAP is to ensure that the trader executing the order does so in-line with volume on the market.
VWAP is also often used in algorithmic trading. Indeed, a broker may guarantee execution of an order at the VWAP and have a computer program enter the orders into the market in order to earn the trader’s commission and create P&L. This is called a guaranteed VWAP execution.
The broker can also trade in a best effort way and answer to the client the realized price. This is called a VWAP target execution; it incurs more dispersion in the answered price compared to the VWAP price for the client but a lower received/paid commission. Trading algorithms that use VWAP as a target belong to a class of algorithms known as volume participation algorithms.
