Exponential Moving Average (EMA)

Also known as Exponentially Weighted Moving Average. This is the more favorite among traders, because it reacts faster to changes in the market. But it does give more double signals, whipsaws or false signals, unlike the Simple Moving Average.

It reacts faster, because prices that are more recent are given more value and thus recent price action has more influence on the movements of the line.

For the short term trends the most popular time periods are around 12 and 26 days. These are also used in the popular Moving Average Convergence Divergence (MACD).

To keep an eye on the long term trends around the 50 and 200 days are used.
