Hey Trader,

VWAP Strategies To Elevate Your Trading Game

If you've been following Speciale Analysis for a while, chances are you're familiar with the uses I employ the VWAP for in my personal trading, analysis, interpretations and expectations. But in this comprehensive guide, we're diving deep into the advanced techniques of the VWAP trading strategy to take your trading game to the next level.

1. What is VWAP?

Volume Weighted Average Price (VWAP) is a trading benchmark that calculates the average price a security has traded at throughout the day, taking into account both volume and price. It's a powerful tool for traders.

2. Why Do I Use the VWAP Indicator?

After over 13 years in the trading game, I've tested various strategies and indicators. These days, I stick to simplicity and effectiveness with just the VWAP indicator and volume on my chart. It's versatile, effective for all intraday market assets, and suitable for both long- or short-side trading.

3. How to Use VWAP in Day Trading?

VWAP Cross-Long Setup: This occurs when the stock price crosses above the VWAP, typically seen as a bullish signal. Strong volume accompanying the breakout is key, indicating strong buying interest.

VWAP Cross-Short Setup: This happens when the stock price is trading below the VWAP and makes a brief rally to the VWAP, but cannot sustain the upward momentum and starts to fade away. This serves as a bearish indication.

Here are some insider secrets to using the VWAP strategy effectively:

  • Understanding the Entry Criteria: Look for VWAP reclaim for bullish trades and VWAP rejection for bearish trades, along with confirmation from volume and trend.

  • Using VWAP as a Key Level: VWAP can act as a guide for support and resistance levels, offering valuable insights into potential trend reversals.

  • Maximize Your Profit with VWAP: Master shorting with VWAP to capitalize on downward movements in stock prices.

  • Using VWAP to Spot Short Traps Consolidations or Trend Confirmation: VWAP can help identify short trap consolidations and confirm trend reversals.

  • Use VWAP with Pre-market Data: Incorporating pre-market data into VWAP analysis can provide early insights into market sentiment.

  • VWAP and End-of-Day Trading: Assessing the price level relative to VWAP towards the end of the trading day can offer clues about market sentiment.
