## Индикатор Трикс (Triple Exponential Moving Average, TRIX)

The Triple Exponential Moving Average Oscillator (TRIX) by Jack Hutson is a momentum indicator that oscillates around zero. It displays the percentage rate of change between two triple smoothed exponential moving averages.

##### Formula

EMA1 = EMA1n-1 + ((2 / (n + 1)) * (Pn — EMA1n-1))

EMA2 = EMA2n-1 + ((2 / (n + 1)) * (EMA1n — EMA2n-1))

EMA3 = EMA3n-1 + ((2 / (n + 1)) * (EMA2n — EMA3n-1))

TRIX = (EMA3n — EMA3n-1 ) / EMA3n-1

• Pn =the current price.
• EMA1n-1 = the exponential moving average value of n periods back
• EMA2n-1 = the exponential moving average value of n periods back
• EMA3n-1 = the exponential moving average value of n periods back

## What Is the Triple Exponential Average

The Triple Exponential Average (TRIX) is a momentum indicator used by technical traders that shows the percentage change in a triple exponentially smoothed moving average. When it is applied to triple smoothing of moving averages, it is designed to filter out price movements that are considered insignificant or unimportant. TRIX is also implemented by technical traders to produce signals that are similar in nature to the Moving Average Convergence Divergence (MACD).

## Understanding the Triple Exponential Average

Developed by Jack Hutson in the early 1980s, the Triple Exponential Average (TRIX) has become a popular technical analysis tool to aid chartists in spotting diversions and directional cues in stock trading patterns. Although many consider TRIX to be very similar to MACD, the primary difference between the two is that TRIX outputs are smoother due to the triple smoothing of the exponential moving average (EMA).

As a powerful oscillator indicator, TRIX can be used to identify oversold and overbought markets, and it can also be used as a momentum indicator. Like many oscillators, TRIX oscillates around a zero line. When it is used as an oscillator, a positive value indicates an overbought market while a negative value indicates an oversold market. When TRIX is used as a momentum indicator, a positive value suggests momentum is increasing while a negative value suggests momentum is decreasing. Many analysts believe that when the TRIX crosses above the zero line, it gives a buy signal, and when it closes below the zero line, it gives a sell signal. Also, any divergence between price and TRIX can indicate significant turning points in the market.

Readers are encouraged to explore our deeper dive into the advantages of TRIX.

## Calculating TRIX

First, the Exponential Moving Average of a price is derived from the expression:

Followed by the second smoothing of the obtained average is executed—double exponential smoothing:

The double Exponential Moving Average is smoothed exponentially one more time—hence, the Triple Exponential Moving Average:

## Индикатор Трикс (Triple Exponential Moving Average, TRIX)

TRIX is known as Triple Exponential Moving Average and is based on a 1-day difference of the triple EMA. The indicator was developed by Jack Hutson in 1980s.

TRIX is a remarkable trend following-indicator: its main advantage over the similar indicators lies in its ability to filter a large portion of the market noise. TRIX eliminates short-term cycles (the cycles shorter than the selected TRIX period) which may interfere with trading by signaling about minor changes in market direction.

TRIX reading above zero suggests an uptrend, while reading below — a downtrend.
While above zero a rising TRIX line suggests acceleration higher while a declining line — still an upward move but at a slower pace, or a beginning of a reversal. Opposite true for the downtrend.

The default & common value for TRIX is 14 period.

To make TRIX react faster to changes in a trend, we recommend using TRIX period = 12, with the signal line = 4.

### TRIX divergence

TRIX divergence is similar to trading with MACD divergence: where on the chart higher highs in an uptrend (or lower lows in a downtrend) are not confirmed by TRIX.

If you’d like to have an additional reversal confirmation, wait till TRIX crosses its zero line.

### TRIX and breakouts

TRIX’s indicator position in relation to its zero line helps to anticipate directions of breakouts:
1. Trading range breakouts during the trend — whipsaws and real breakouts.
2. Trend line breakouts.

Despite the versatility and accuracy of the TRIX indicator when it comes to filtering out market noise, it is still recommended to pay attention to other indicators and signals that can help to improve trading performance.

### TRIX Formula

The TRIX is calculated as follows:

The default & common value for TRIX is 14 period.

Step 1. EMA #1: calculate a 14-period exponential moving average of today’s closing price
Step 2. EMA #2: calculate a 14-period exponential moving average of EMA #1
Step 3. EMA #3: calculate a 14-period exponential moving average of EMA #2
Step 4. TRIX = ( EMA #3 of today — EMA #3 from yesterday ) / EMA #3 from yesterday.
This will give a percentage value to be used for building TRIX indicator graph.
