I’ using MT4 platform and i find that “smooth moving average” is a useful indicator at most of the time. but i can’t find it’s configuration(someone calls it the calculation) on web. so plz tell me about it?and i’ll thank u more if u could talk about the "linear moving average"by the way

I can’t help you on the formulas, but I’ve noticed this:

add a 100 period EMA and a 50 period Smoothed MA to the same chart. You’ll find that MT4 smoothed MA apparently equals an EMA of double length.

edit: found this link which might be helpful: Moving average - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
