Understanding the Crossed Above VWAP Alert

VWAP is an indicator that stands for Volume-Weighted Average Price. VWAP is calculated by taking into account both the price and the volume of trades over a specific time period. The VWAP is often used by institutions to grade their traders. The VWAP can also be used to set prices on institutional orders.

Traders may look at how the current market price compares to the VWAP to gauge whether a stock is trading above or below the average price and make trading decisions based on this information.

This alert is similar to the "Crossed above open (confirmed)" alert. This alert uses the same statistical analysis of the price, but compares the price to the VWAP.
