Exponential moving average is used in finance to analyze changes stock prices.
EMA is used in conjunction with Simple moving average (SMA), EMA reacts to the
changes in the value quicker than SMA, which is one of the advantages of using EMA.

Where,

Exponential moving average (EMA) is a rule of thumb technique for
smoothing time series data using an exponential window function.
