        Basics of Technical Analysis

        Views 28022022.09.21

        What is the Volume-Weighted Average Price (VWAP)?

        1. Introduction

        volume-weighted average price (VWAP)is a trading indicator that presents the average price a financial instrument has traded at throughout the day, taking into consideration both volume and price. Providing traders with insights into both trend and value, the indicator is therefore widely used.

        This measure helps investors and analysts evaluate the current price of a stock and determine whether it is relatively overpriced or underpricedcompared to the average trading price for the day. Often this information is used to facilitate the entry or exit of a position.

        2. Formula

        VWAP is calculated by adding up the amount of every trade  (price multiplied by the number of shares traded) and then divided by the total shares traded.

        3. General Application

        VWAP is widely used as a trend confirmation tool by traders. VWAP is an intraday indicator and will be reset at the beginning of each trading day. 
        A financial instrument trading at prices above VWAP shows a bullish sentiment, and vice versa (below, bearish sentiment).
