WMA - Weighted Moving Average

Description

The Weighted Moving Average is the most well-known of the weighted averages, and is implemented to identify and quickly react to price changes. Current prices are given higher weighting than older ones. In addition, bad signals in sideways markets are minimized. The WMA smoothes the price changes and makes more efficient trade identification possible.
