Apply a Double Exponential Moving Average (DEMA)

Based on both a single exponential moving average (EMA) and a double EMA, the DEMA is a fast-acting moving average that is more responsive to market changes than a traditional moving average. It was developed in an attempt to create a calculation that eliminated some of the lag associated with traditional moving averages.
