Description: The Weighted Moving Average (WMA) finds the average price of a security over a set number of periods. It gives more weight to the more recent prices, relative to older prices, in an attempt to reduce the lag associated with moving averages, in general. This is calculated by multiplying each of the previous interval's data by a weight based on the period length in the WMA. Each price is multiplied by a factor, with the current price having the highest factor and each price after that having a factor of the prior price less one.
Number of periods = 10, 20, 50, 100, 150
