Category: Averages > IE/2

Description:

IE/2 is one of pre-studies created while T3 famous average was developing. It is calculated as (ILRS(n)+EPMA(n))/2.

ILRS, is an integral of linear regression slope. In this moving average, the slope of a linear regression line is simply integrated as it is fitted in a moving window of length n across the data. The derivative of ILRS is the linear regression slope.

EPMA is an end point moving average - it is the endpoint of the linear regression line of length n as it is fitted across the data. EPMA hugs the data more closely than a simple or exponential moving average of the same length.

Usage:

The most popular method of interpreting a moving average is to compare the relationship between a moving average of the security's price with the security's price itself (or between several moving averages).

Inputs:

Price - price data to use
Period - number of bars to use in calculation

EasyLanguage Code:
```INPUTS: PRICE(CLOSE), PERIOD(15);
VARS: ILRS(0), EPMA(0), IE(0);

ILRS = LINEARREGSLOPE(PRICE, PERIOD) + AVERAGE(PRICE, PERIOD);
EPMA = LINEARREGVALUE(PRICE, PERIOD, 0);
IE =  (ILRS + EPMA) / 2;
