This tool will help you calculate the mean average of a set of numbers.

## How to Use the Moving Average Calculator

To use this Moving Average (MA) calculator, please follow these steps:

- Enter the opening price of the stock in the “Open Price” field.
- Enter the closing price of the stock in the “Close Price” field.

## How it Calculates the Results

The calculator first ensures that all inputs are numerical values. Then it calculates the moving average using the following steps:

- Computes a preliminary average of the input prices: (Open + Close + High + Low) / 4.
- Averages this preliminary average over the number of specified periods to get the moving average.

## Limitations

This calculator has some limitations:

- It presumes a simple moving average using the given period.
- It requires valid numerical inputs for all fields to function correctly.
- The accuracy of the MA depends on the accuracy of the input data.
