Calculation of the Moving Average
The Gold Moving Average is also known as MA - is calculated as an average of gold trading price using the most recent gold price data.
If the MA uses the 10 period to calculate the average of the gold trading price then it is referred to as a 10 period gold trading moving average, because most gold traders use the day as the standard gold price period we shall just refer to it as the 10 day MA.
To calculate the ten day MA the gold price of the last 10 days is averaged, the gold trading moving average average indicator is then updated constantly after every new gold trading price period. So after every new gold trading price period is formed the moving average is then calculated afresh using the most recent 10 gold trading price periods, that is why it is called a moving average because the average is constantly moving when gold trading price data is updated.
