Example text

This moving average may also smooth out the seasonality (characteristic annual variation, often associated with the seasons of the year) inherent in the series. The extent of smoothing depends on the order of the series: The more time periods included in this order (average), the more smoothing takes place. A moving average of order 1, sometimes referred to as a naive forecast, is used as a forecast by taking the last observation as a forecast for the subsequent value of the series. As an illustration, a moving average of order 3—that is, MA(3)—is used for forecasting one-step-ahead; this kind of moving average is often used for quarterly data.

When a disequilibrium of forces impinges on the series and stochastically brings about a change in level of the series, we say that the series is characterized by stochastic trend (Wei, 1990). Deterministic trends are systematic changes of the mean level of a series as a function of time. Whether or not these trends are deterministic or stochastic, they may be linear or curvilinear. If they are curvilinear, trends may be polynomial, exponential, or dampened. A trend may be short-run or long-run.

In the formula for the moving average, shown in Eq. 9), the subscript i is replaced by t, and the n from the simple average becomes a t as well. The span from t1 to t3 embraces three time periods. 3. Averaging Techniques 19 The cumulative effect of the moving average, however, gives more weight to the central observations than to those at the ends of the series. The effect of the single moving average is to smooth out irregular fluctuations, sometimes referred to as the hash, of the time series.
