Forecasting Definition It is scientific process of estimating and Predict in advance. It is NOT just a guess. Why are we interested? Forecasts provide helpful information to make better decisions. Forecasting is easier and cheaper now
Forecasting Models Simple Moving Average A simple, or arithmetic, moving average that is calculated by adding the closing price of the security for a number of time periods and then dividing this total by the number of time periods Weighted Moving Average A type of moving average that assigns a higher weighting to recent price data than does the common simple moving average. This average is calculated by taking each of the closing prices over a given time period and multiplying them by its certain position in the data series Smoothing Moving Average A Smoothed Moving Average is sort of a cross between a SMA and an Exponential Moving Average, only with a longer period applied. The Smoothed Moving Average gives the recent prices an equal weighting to the historic onesExponential Moving Average Seasonal Index It indicates the changes in the behavior of the numbers.
