A Sine wave is a smooth repetitive oscillation that shifts between a high of y and a low of -y. A SW-MA takes its weighting from the first half of a Sine wave cycle so the largest weighting is given to the data in the middle. The result is very similar to the Triangular Moving Average (Tri-MA) but much more difficult to calculate.

Calculation: Sine Weighted Moving Average (SWMA):
1) PI:=3.14;
2) SD:=180/6;
3) S1:=Sin(1*180/6)*C;
4) S2:=Sin(2*180/6)*Ref(C -1);
5) S3:=Sin(3*180/6)*Ref(C -2);
6) S4:=Sin(4*180/6)*Ref(C -3);
7) S5:=Sin(5*180/6)*Ref(C -4);
8) Num:=S1+S2+S3+S4+S5;
9) Den:=Sin(SD)+Sin(2*SD)+Sin(3*SD)+Sin(4*SD)+Sin(5*SD);
10) SWMA=Num/Den
