VWAP indicator is a volume-weighted average price. The VWAP is displayed directly on the price chart. The indicator calculation starts when the trading session is opened and continues until it is closed, i. e. during one day. Hence, the VWAP is mainly intended for trading during one day. To calculate the indicator, the cumulative value of the product of the volume by the typical price should be divided by the cumulative volume.
