Apply Weighted Moving Average Indicator

The weighted moving average gives each data point a weight proportionate to its number in the sequence and divides by the sum of its weights. The calculation for a 3-bar weighted moving average is:

(1 x price_1) + (2 x price_2) + (3 x price_3) divided by 6, where 6 is the sum of the weights (1 + 2 + 3).


To apply a Weighted Moving Average

  1. From within a chart, from the Edit menu select Studies.
