The use of 21 days is arbitrary; it is roughly the number of trading days in a month. The moving-average chart provides information about stock price relative to its recent history.

It measures the central location of the distribution. We denote the mean of X by μx . For an asset, an interesting question is whether the mean of its return is zero. In other words, we often consider the hypothesis testing H0 : μx = 0 versus Ha : μ = 0 or H0 : μx ≤ 0 versus Ha : μx > 0. The th central moment of X is defined as m = E [(X − μx ) ] = ∞ −∞ (x − μx ) f (x )dx provided that the integral exists. The second central moment, denoted by σx2 , measures the variability of X and is called the variance of X .
