Welles Wilder Moving Average
The Welles Wilder method of calculating moving averages is very similar to a Simple Moving Average. Both calculations provide similar results. Welles designed his formula to be easily computed by hand or with a simple calculator. For the sake of consistency Welles’ Moving Averages are used in all Welles indicator formulas (ADX, ADXR, ATR and Welles’ Volatility).
