Double exponential smoothing - also known as Holt exponential smoothing is a refinement of the popular simple exponential smoothing model with an additional trending component. Double exponential smoothing model for equity instruments works best with periods where there are trends or seasonality.
When price prices exhibit either an increasing or decreasing trend over time, simple exponential smoothing forecasts tend to lag behind observations. Double exponential smoothing is designed to address this type of data series by taking into account any price trend in the prices. So in double exponential smoothing past observations are given exponentially smaller weights as the observations get older. In other words, recent equity instruments observations are given relatively more weight in forecasting than the older observations.

Smoothing is a term used when we are trying to turn the data into smoother trends. If you note on some indicators, they move in a wild manner and are choppy. The ideal indicator moves smoothly, giving use a potentially more accurate reading. If you saw an RSI that moved quickly, it may deter you from using that tool because you may not have the ability to form an opinion quick enough. However, if you are day trading, you may decide the quick movements are what you need.
