Booked is the key (which is the string of a date, when booked), for example, if it has allready aggregated a certain amount of records, only new ones that have been added need to be inserted.

so, you mean:
insert into xxxx
 
Select M.Booked, Sum(M.Moved) as Qty
, (Select Sum(Moves.Moved) From Moves Where Moves.Booked <= M.Booked) as Res
From Moves as M
where M.booked > ( SELECT MAX(xxx.booked) FROM xxx )
Group by M.booked
order by M.Booked
