What is EMA in stocks?

The exponential moving average is a technical indicator used for trading practices to measure trend direction over a time period and reacts more to recent prices.

An exponential moving average, also known as exponentially weighted moving average places higher weightage on the most recent data points. Unlike a simple moving average (SMA), an exponential moving average responds significantly to the most recent behavior of traders.

The 12-day and 26-day EMA are the most popular short-term averages. However, the 50-day, 100-day, and 200-day EMAs are commonly used to gauge long-term trends. The essential message here is that the exponential moving average can respond faster to changes in the price of an asset.
