A “moving average” (or MA in brief) is an analytical tool that takes the average of any quantity over a specified period, and as its name implies, it moves with the quantity and changes its value accordingly.
MAs are quite useful in studying long-term trends as they eliminate any short-term fluctuations and smooth out the curve.
