EMA period help
« on: June 23, 2017, 02:24:19 PM »
Hi,

I'm totaly confused about EMA1/2 period
all around I see period in hours.
in example, set it to ema1 to 2 and ema2 to 4 etc.
but on default setup it's 0.02 and 0.04

SO the real question is:  0.02 = 2hours or 0.02 = 1.2 minutes (60*0.02) ?


as a second question how I can see 'flow' of poloniex api result ?
i want to do my graph on it :)

 " The 0.02 and 0.04 values are a reversed engineered formula to calculate EMA1 and EMA2 very similar to Poloniex periods of 2 and 4 hours with a candlesticks period of 15 minutes "
