Moving Average calculated from "today"

Hi everyone,

 

I've got a moving average measure:

 

30 Day Moving Average = 
AVERAGEX (
DATESINPERIOD (
'Date'[Date],
LASTDATE ( 'Date'[Date] ),
-30,
DAY
),
[Total Stream]
)

and I was wondering how to only calculate it back from the current day as at the moment it projects another 30 days onto a line chart.

 

Many thanks

One suggestion is to add a column to your date table as follows

 

Days from Today = INT(NOW() - Dates[Date])

 

Then you can simply add a Visual, Page or Report filter that only shows data for when [Days from Today] is > 0 (or between a range)

 

There are other benefits to adding such a column - so I highly recommend.

Thanks for the reply.  I ended up using the "Age" function on a duplicate of the date column and selected "Day" as the granularity.
