The DEMA is a smoothing indicator with less lag than a straight exponential moving average. DEMA is an acronym for Double Exponential Moving Average, but the calculation is more complex than just a moving average of a moving average.

The DEMA was developed by Patrick Mulloy and is described in his article in the February, 1994 issue of Technical Analysis of Stocks & Commodities magazine.
