given continuous function can be approximated by selecting an arbitrary polynomial, where the goodness-of-fit increases with the order of the polynomial. Higher-order polynomials, however, quite frequently display insufficient smoothing properties. This problem can be avoided by relying on a piecewise...

ExponentialSmoothing Models1 Professor Thomas B. Fomby Department of Economics Southern Methodist University Dallas, TX June 2008
Introduction The formulation of exponentialsmoothing forecasting methods arose in the 1950’s from the original work of Brown (1959, 1962) and Holt (1960) who were...

The most important reason for not using moving averages is that exponentialsmoothing is as accurate as moving averages while at the same time computationally more efficient. When using moving average, it is...
