Can someone help me please?
On a three point moving average the first trend figure is put in the second line of the column but on a five point moving average the first trend figure is put in the third line of the column. I don't get this. Can anyone explain.:confused1:
Thanks

Hi
It is just the average distance between the numbers so a 3 point starts on the 2nd line and a 5 point on the 3rd line.
ie;
.
. This would be the middle of the 3 point
.
.
.
. This would be the middle for the 5 point
.

Hope this explains it!0

Hi
No actually I haven't. I told my tutor I would pop in and do the skills test after the exams, but my mind needed a rest, so I did intend picking up the books again next week and getting this out the way before the exams results come in, as if I have any resists I don't want to also have to do Cash Management.0
