My favorite is still SMA - standard moving average and FIFO = First In First Out. This latter one, obviously, is not exclusive to futures trading... or trading at all for that matter.


May be moot and I certainly do not disagree with you. However, I know it as Simple Moving Average here in the USA. As it's calculations do not use exponents in the equation, as per it's early technical indiator sister the Exponential Moving Average or EMA. just sayin'...
