 # Average In the context of crypto and investment, "average" refer to several different concepts.
One common concept is the "average price," which is the arithmetic mean of the prices at which an asset has been bought or sold over a certain period of time. For example, if an investor buys 10 units of a cryptocurrency at \$100, and then buys 5 more units at \$200, the average price of their investment would be calculated as ((10 * 100) + (5 * 200)) / 15 = \$133.33.
Another concept is the "moving average," which is a calculation that takes the average price of an asset over a certain number of time periods, and is used to smooth out price fluctuations and identify trends. For example, a 50-day moving average would take the average price of an asset over the past 50 days, and then calculate a new average each day based on the most recent 50 days of data.
In the context of investment, the "average return" can refer to the average annualized return on an investment (ROI) over a certain period of time, taking into account any gains or losses. This metric is useful for evaluating the performance of an investment over the long term.
