Making a moving average backwards

Hello everyone!
I Have the follow problem, I want to do a moving average backwards.
for example, as the table below:

DateValue
01/01/201910
02/01/201911
03/01/201914
04/01/201915
05/01/201918
06/01/201919
07/01/201918
08/01/201920
09/01/201914
10/01/201925


So what I want to show is: On date 10/01/2019, the value that must show is 25. 
On day 09/01/2019, it must show the average between day 10 and 9, given me a total of 19,5  (That is (20+14)/2)
On day 08/01, it must show an average of the days 10, 9 and 8, given me a total of 19,6 (That is (20+14+25)/3)
On day 07/01 must show the average of the day 10,9,8,7 and so on....

How can I do this?

Thank you!

Hi @gertjvr 

You may create a measure like below:

Measure =
DIVIDE (
    CALCULATE (
        SUM ( Table2[Value] ),
        FILTER ( ALL ( Table2 ), Table2[Date] >= MAX ( Table2[date] ) )
    ),
    COUNTROWS ( FILTER ( ALL ( Table2 ), Table2[Date] >= MAX ( Table2[date] ) ) )
)
