# Twap

+ Time Weighted Average PriceThis is basically NeoButane's script (which should be more popular than it is) with a few additions, those being primarily plotted lines of the closing price of the previous TWAP, however I've also added the optionality of plotting a second TWAP of say, maybe a different resolution if you are so inclined. Also, you may plot shapes across the top or bottom of your chart color based on if current price is above or below the previous closing price of the TWAP, in case you might want to clean the chart up a bit and not plot the actual closing price lines.
But what is TWAP, exactly, you might be saying to yourself. If you're familiar with VWAP then you've probably a pretty good idea of what this is and how it works. TWAP is a calculation that defines the weighted average price over a specific time period. Traders use TWAP as a trading strategy, or more specifically, an execution strategy, to place large orders without excessively impacting the market price. They break down the large orders into several sets of small orders priced near TWAP. Basically it's VWAP but without the volume element, and most traders will likely use it in a similar fashion as they might use VWAP, and that is like a moving average--dynamic support and resistance.
I like to think of it as displaying a price range over a specified time period (such as a month or a week). This is why I think the closes of the previous period or two are so important. Losing the previous closing price or regaining it can often give you an inclination as to whether at least some of the next period (the one you're currently in) may be bearish or bullish.

And here's the same image with just the closing price for the time period plotted.

Flunki T-WAP minus MA Oscillator
Yo,
Possible the last of these for now, and mostly for the sake of completeness..
This is..
Another simple oscillator that show the difference in price between a selectable timeframe TWAP and a Moving Average of that TWAP
This is shown as a histogram.
Use numeric TWAP values for minutes (30, 60 ,720 whatever) and D, 3D, W, M for higher values
There is also a global timeframe which will set the timeframe for a global alternate timeframe (instead of current chart resolution)
On top of that is a Moving Average of the histogram value, shown as a blue / red line with an option to highlight this MA crossing zero, and an option to colour bars to this line.
The major difference between this Oscillator, and the other script (Flunki VWAP minus MA Oscillator)
(I treid to insert a link but it's invisible so it would seem, anyway.. )
is that VWAP is usually calculated daily, so there is a sharp move upon the daily close, as VWAP starts a new day. Using TWAP this does not occur, so gives smoother transitions ; also the timeframe for TWAP is selectable for additional wap fun.
Simple idea : Code open
Enjoy !

Flunki TWAP minus MTF TWAP Oscillator
Heys,
Herewith a another simple oscillator that show the difference in price between a selectable timeframe TWAP and another alternative selectable timeframe TWAP
This is shown as a histogram.
Use numeric TWAP values for minutes (30, 60 ,720 whatever) and D, 3D, W, M for higher values
There is also a global timeframe which will set the timeframe for a global alternate timeframe (instead of current chart resolution)
On top of that is a Moving Average of the histogram value, shown as a blue / red line with an option to highlight this MA crossing zero, and an option to colour bars to this line.
Simple idea : Code open

TWAP TrendHere we are experimenting with using TWAP for trend analysis. It appears to work better than VWAP on lower timeframes.
TWAP is a tool used by algorithm based traders that allows them to distribute their orders throughout the day without disturbing price or having their positions known to rival traders in the market. It's similar to VWAP and serves the same function, except it lacks the volume aspect. This can be an issue when position entry/exit may be affected by slippage.
The main benefit of TWAP is deciding how to distribute orders throughout the chosen timeframe. However, just like the VWAP traders will normally use it as a moving average or target for price action to pull into.
There is an option to change the timeframe that TWAP is calculated from.
Originally by NeoButane:

Interval Volatility Bands [DW]This is an experimental study that utilizes Volume Weighted Average Price or Time Weighted Average Price calculations, Bollinger Bands, and Fibonacci numbers to estimate volatility over a specified interval.
First, the basis is calculated by selecting:
-VWAP, which has the option to be calculated using real volume or tick volume
-TWAP, which has the option to be calculated using the standard method or exponential method
Next, standard deviation from the basis is calculated and multiplied by a specified expansion coefficient. The result is then added to and subtracted from the basis to calculate the high and low bands.
There are three band calculation methods to chosse from in this script:
-Standard, which uses the default calculations
-Average, which takes a cumulative average of standard deviation
-Hybrid, which takes the maximum of the standard and average standard deviation methods
Lastly, the high and low band ranges are multiplied by Fibonacci Percentages 23.6 - 78.6.
A custom color scheme with eight default presets to choose from is included.
