Long-Term Moving Average

Long-Term Moving Average

The average price of a security over several weeks or months, calculated continuously. For instance, one may calculate a long-term moving average by adding the closing prices from each day for the past 52 weeks and dividing by the number of trading days considered. As with all moving averages, long-term moving averages may or may not be weighted. Moving averages help smooth out noise that may be present in a security's price on a given trading day.
