sc
A collection of series objects. For example, to evaluate this indicator for two series you will need to pass a series collection containing this two series.
elementValue
Specifies the particular element value (for example High, Low, Close or Open of the financial time series) which will be considered within this indicator evaluation. In particular, if you wish to use the element value high then you should pass the parameter High. In a similarly fashion if you wish to use the low, close or open, then you should pass the parameter Low, Close, Open, respectively.
smoothingFactor
The number between 0 and 1 which is known as a smoothing factor. The closer the value is to zero the more influence more resent measurements will have on the EWMA.
lengthOfMA
The number of periods over which the moving average is evaluated for each period.
Evaluates the (x-day) Exponentially Weighted Moving Average(EWMA) of a time series provided where x is the length of the time series array which is provided as a parameter, for all periods for which sufficient data is provided.

Parameters

sc
A collection of series objects. For example, to evaluate this indicator for two series you will need to pass a series collection containing this two series.
elementValue
Specifies the particular element value (for example High, Low, Close or Open of the financial time series) which will be considered within this indicator evaluation. In particular, if you wish to use the element value high then you should pass the parameter High. In a similarly fashion if you wish to use the low, close or open, then you should pass the parameter Low, Close, Open, respectively.
smoothingFactor
The number between 0 and 1 which is known as a smoothing factor. The closer the value is to zero the more influence more resent measurements will have on the EWMA.
lengthOfMA
The number of periods over which the moving average is evaluated for each period.

Return Value

A series where the first term is the EWMA for the most recent period, the second term is the EWMA for the previous period and so on.

Exceptions

ExceptionDescription
ArgumentExceptionThrown if the Series is empty or if the value given for the smoothing factor lies outside the closed range [0,1].
