VWAP + EMA Analysis [Joshlo]

Overview and Use Case
VWAP Analysis gives the possibility to combine multiple time frames of VWAP along with a triplet of exponential moving averages. This can provide insight into potential scalp, swing and longer term trades, depending on your time frame. The use of this indicator with it's setup is based off the the Scalp Setup Alerts provided by Roensch Capital.

The primary use for this script is to help with intraday scalp set ups. Using the Daily VWAP , turned on by default, we can look for price to respect and bounce from one of the VWAP lines (support or resistance) back toward equilibrium, we can also look for price to bounce off of equilibrium and move back toward VWAP support or resistance.

The chart attached shows AMD bouncing off of the Daily time frame VWAP Resistance level multiple times (see yellow boxes), often with confirmation given by an increase in volume which is often far higher than the average volume . In many of these cases a short position could've been opened or put option could have been placed with a profitable outcome.

Every line projected onto the chart via this indicator has the potential to create support or resistance as well as causing 'hang ups', meaning price loses it's momentum, slows down and hangs out in the particular area. This is shown on the chart within the green box.

Chart walkthrough - See attached chart
After a rejection off of the Daily VWAP Resistance line (depicted by the white circle), price starts to move back toward Daily VWAP Equilibrium. In order to reach this line, price needs to move through the 20EMA (white) and 50EMA (purple), the Weekly VWAP Resistance (red circles) and the 200EMA (orange). All of these lines are a part of this single indicator.

The 20EMA seems to offer little resistance but follows the price on it's move, offering some resistance to a volatile move upward. Initially upon contact with the 50EMA, price hangs up and bounces above and below the line whilst finding support on the Weekly VWAP Resistance at the same time. This causes a 'hang up' or sideways movement for around 20 minutes of trading. A potential trade may have entered at the white circle with a VWAP Resistance rejection and exited upon contact with the 50EMA in anticipation of multiple EMAs and support / resistance lines converging which is known to cause price movement to slow.

Eventually with an increase in volume , price breaks below the 20EMA (white), 50EMA (purple) and the Weekly VWAP Resistance level (red circles). Price then finds support on the 200EMA (orange), although there was potential for the price to fall to the Daily VWAP Equilibrium (solid blue). As the Red VWAP lines tend to act more often as resistance as opposed to support (price is rarely above these lines for extended periods), the trade from earlier may have profited more by awaiting contact with the 200EMA before exiting, taking the assumption that the Weekly VWAP Resistance was more likely to act as resistance than support.

A period of consolidation in the green box, around the Weekly VWAP Resistance, 20EMA, 50EMA and with support from the 200EMA eventually resulted in another break out where the price came back up to the Daily VWAP Resistance. Prior to the end of this trading day, there were two more opportunities for scalp setups based off of the price showing consistent rejections off the Daily VWAP Resistance back down to the 50EMA.

In the final example, price breaks above the Daily VWAP Resistance but quickly rejects off of the Monthly VWAP Resistance. For examples where the VWAP Resistance or Support or broken, it can help to look at an indicator such as the RSI to look for bullish divergence or bearish divergence.

Just as this example shows bounces and rejection off of VWAP Resistance, the same applies around the Equilibrium and Support VWAP lines.

The perfect scenario would be to find a ticker where there has already been two or three bounces off of one of these levels, with the goal of taking the trade on the next bounce and either using a percentage price target or technical price target based off of the EMAs or VWAP lines. If there are EMAs close in the direction you want to take the trade, there is a higher chance of hang ups and reversals, so a clear run is the more desired trade set up.

You can also look for these indicator lines to stack up in order to form a stronger support and resistance . For example the 200EMA and Daily VWAP Equilibrium being close to each other may suggest it would take more of an effort to break both of these levels, but one by itself may break more easily.

Indicator Setup
In the settings for the indicator, almost everything you might want to change can be done from the Input tab.

The three options for VWAP (daily, weekly and monthly) allow for analysis on multiple time frames. Daily is turned on as standard.

Standard Deviation Multiplier is set to 2 as standard, this effects the distance of the VWAP support and resistance from the equilibrium line. This seems to be a level that works well with finding support and resistance lines, however if there is excessively high or low volume , occasionally the lines can be thrown off. You can adjust this level if required to find a 'sweet spot' where price likes to reject or find support.

The colors for all VWAPs can be adjusted via the Inputs tab, however if you'd like to change the type of line these are depicted as, this can be done from the Styles tab.

The 3 EMAs (20, 50 and 200) can be toggled on or off and also have their color changed. The style of the lines can be adjusted from with the Styles tab if required.
