# 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):

`    SMA = (P1 + P2 + P3 + P4 + ... + PN) / N`

Then, take the average of all the SMA values to get TRIMA values.

`    TRIMA = (SMA1 + SMA2 + SMA3 + SMA4 + ... SMAN) / N`

The TRIMA can also be expressed as:

`    TRIMA = SUM (SMA values) / N`
