Moving Average - T3 (T3)

 Navigation:  NinjaScript > Language Reference > Common > System Indicator Methods > Moving Average - T3 (T3)   ## Description

The T3 is a type of moving average, or smoothing function. It is based on the DEMA. The T3 takes the DEMA calculation and adds a vfactor which is between zero and 1. The resultant function is called the GD, or Generalized DEMA. A GD with vfactor of 1 is the same as the DEMA. A GD with a vfactor of zero is the same as an Exponential Moving Average. The T3 typically uses a vfactor of 0.7.

## Syntax

T3(int period, int tCount, double vFactor)

T3(ISeries<double> input, int period, int tCount, double vFactor)

Returns default value

T3(int period, int tCount, double vFactor)[int barsAgo]

T3(ISeries<double> input, int period, int tCount, double vFactor)[int barsAgo]

## Return Value

double; Accessing this method via an index value [int barsAgo] returns the indicator value of the referenced bar.

## Parameters

 input Indicator source data (?) period Number of bars used in the calculation tCount Number of smooth iterations vFactor A multiplier fudge factor

## // Prints the current value of a 20 period T3 using default price type
double value = T3(20, 3, 0.7);
Print("The current T3 value is " + value.ToString());

// Prints the current value of a 20 period T3 using high price type
double value = T3(High, 20, 3, 0.7);
Print("The current T3 value is " + value.ToString());
