MAC-Z VWAP Indicator [LazyBear]

This a modified MAC-Z using Z-VWAP. Since this uses VWAP , the signals are derived indirectly from both volume and price action.

I have also included a way to smooth MACZ-VWAP, you can enable it via options page.

Note that this will not work on any FX pair, as volume is not available.

Damn, dude. I need a separate folder in my favorite scripts just for yours. Thanks again.

Thanks, man! Would you recommend a good entry point for divergences?

Signalline-crossing after a divergence, followed by other confirmations like fib/SR bounce et al should be good, imo.
