//Triangular Moving average

/* A Triangular moving average is similar to exponential AND
weighted moving averages except A different weighting scheme
is used. Exponential AND Weighted averages assign the majority
of the weight to the most recent data. Simple moving averages
assign the weight equally across all the data. With A Triangular
moving average, the majority of the weight is assigned to the middle
portion of the data.*/
