NAME

Math::EWMA - EWMA in object form

SYNOPSIS

        use Math::EWMA;
        my $ewma = Math::EWMA->new(alpha => $n);
        $ewma->ewma($value);

DESCRIPTION

Implements an exponential moving average with a weight of $alpha in object form. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Moving_average

new

Create a new EWMA object with alpha $n.

        my $ewma = Math::EWMA->new(alpha => $n);

An alpha value of 2/(N+1) is roughly equivalent to a simple moving average of N periods

ewma

Add value to series and return the current exponential moving average

    $ewma->ewma($current);

$current is the current live value

Returns last_avg if called with no arguments.

precision

The precision level for decimal places. Defaults to 2.

last_avg

The current value of the EWMA series. If you want to continue a series from a previous time, then pass that value in during object construction:

        my $ewma = Math::EWMA->new(alpha => .125, last_avg => 45.754);
