Moving average

The moving average is an indicator used in technical analysis that combines the prices of an asset over a given period of time.

It is a trend indicator that shows the average evolution of an asset over a period of time. For example, the moving average of a stock can be calculated for a period of 50 trading sessions.

The moving average is calculated continuously on the basis of the arithmetic average of the price of a security over a specific period of time. This indicator is used to determine the trend of the asset.
