. . .more on Formulas 

Y = Modified Moving Average
N = Number of Periods used
T = total of last N values of the security
T = y + y[1] + y[2] + y[N-1]
S = Sum of Security Weighted Values
S = ((N-1)/2*y + ((N-3)/2*y[1] + ((N-5)/2*y[2] + ... + 
       ((N-(2*N-1))/2)*y[N-1]
Y = T/N + (6*S) / ((N+1) * N)
