Moving average (how to calculate)

Hello,

I need to calculate moving averages of weekly data during the last
year.
After some search, I believe that the best approach will be to get a
dataset from the SQL Server database, browse the records and, using an
algorithm, calculate the moving average.

There is an article on the "Code Project" website entitled "A Simple
Moving Average Algorithm" but honnestly I have been unable to
implement the solution.

Any tip, pseudo code or existing algorithm will be most welcome,

Thanks for your help,

Michel

There is a great article on Wikipedia that includes some pseudo code:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Algorit...ating_variance

This article also explains pros and cons of different methods.

If you need some example code let me know. I have some in C
(not .Net).

Firstly, sorry for the long post, but I've included a fair bit of sample data. Im doing a comparision of 10yr Bond prices and CPI adjustments, with an 18 week moving average of the CPI. I'm using a nested sub-query to calculate the moving average, but I'm having difficulty selecting exactly 18 data points (ie When I include the 'HAVING COUNT(C1.Closes) = 18' line, I get no results). Can anyone help?

Is there a simple way of A: using yet another calculated field in the query...
