tripleEMA() function

tripleEMA() returns the triple exponential moving average (TEMA) of values in the _value column.

tripleEMA uses n number of points to calculate the TEMA, giving more weight to recent data with less lag than exponentialMovingAverage() and doubleEMA().

Triple exponential moving average rules

  • A triple exponential moving average is defined as tripleEMA = (3 * EMA_1) - (3 * EMA_2) + EMA_3.
    • EMA_1 is the exponential moving average of the original data.
    • EMA_2 is the exponential moving average of EMA_1.
    • EMA_3 is the exponential moving average of EMA_2.
  • A true triple exponential moving average requires at least requires at least 3 * n - 2 values. If not enough values exist to calculate the TEMA, it returns a NaN value.
  • tripleEMA() inherits all exponentialMovingAverage() rules.
