IRCTC, in tight zone, use AVWAP to get BUY/SELL signal

nitinshm Updated   
Anchored volume weighted average price or simply AVWAP is a previous meaningful benchmark price on a chart chosen by traders that quantifies the average price a market has traded at through a time period, based on both volume and price. This metric is important because it provides traders with a visual into the nature of the trend and the average technical value of a stock from a defined starting point.

An anchored VWAP can thus be used to represent the ‘pain/pleasure’ limit of an average purchased share since that event, top or bottom. Anchored VWAPs turn out to be very good resistance and support lines. A confluence zone on AVWAP from top and bottom shows value area, where both buyers and sellers are in equilibrium.

IRCTC is has taken multiple resistance from AVWAP from top, but it has not resulted in selling pressure and it not trading in tight range of ~3% between both AVWAP ( ie 1410-1366).

When price goes above top AVWAP (red line), one can go LONG with trailing SL based on AVWAP from bottom (green line).

Similarly as SELL would be generated when price goes above below bottom AVWAP (green line), trailing SL based on AVWAP from top (red line).
