(iii) Exponentially Smoothed Forecasts Use for short-term forecasting only: i.e. useful if the trend and seasonal component in the data are insignificant F t+1 = Forecast for time t+1 w = exponential smoothing constant Y t = Actual Data at the end of time t F 1 = Y 1 F t+1 = w* Y t + (1-w) F t

12 Exponential Smoothing Forecasting Example The closing prices on the last day of the month for a stock in 2015-2016 are given in the table . Use w = .2 to forecast the closing price for the January 31, 2017. Exponential Smoothing

13 Exponential Smoothing Forecasting Solution F 1/31/2017 = 55.42 The actual closing price on 1/31/2017 turned out = 62.49. Forecast Error = Y 1/31/2007 F 1/31/2007 = 62.49 – 55.42 = 7.07 F t+1 = w* Y t + (1-w) F t

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
