# Interface # Formula

The Triangular Moving Average (TRIMA) is an average of an average, of the last N prices (P).
First, calculate the Simple Moving Average (SMA):
1
SMA = (P1 + P2 + P3 + P4 + ... + PN) / N
Copied!
Then, take the average of all the SMA values to get TRIMA values.
1
TRIMA = (SMA1 + SMA2 + SMA3 + SMA4 + ... SMAN) / N
Copied!
The TRIMA can also be expressed as:
1
TRIMA = SUM (SMA values) / N
Copied!
