The indicator is smoothed triple times to show the changes in moving average; in this way, the unnecessary information will be filtered out to make a more accurate trading decision for long-term profits. TRIX consists of two lines: one is TRIX and the other is MATRIX. The later indicator stands for Moving Average TRIX.
