Exponential Moving Average(redirected from Exponential Moving Averages)
Exponential Moving Average
The average price of a security calculated by adding closing prices from the most recent trading days (for example, the last 10 days) and dividing by the number of trading days considered (in this case, 10), with more recent trading days being weighted so that they affect the average more. An exponential moving average is more difficult to calculate than a simple moving average, but it provides a quick look at a security's trend.
