Moving average forecasting models

Question Description

I’m working on a Business question and need guidance to help me study.

average is mainly used to forecast short historical range data. This 
tool along with other forecasting tools is now computerized such as in
Excel,  which makes it easy to use. With  regard to moving average forecasting, read the following task.

five years for three different stocks. Data can be  obtained from the
Internet by using the following keywords: stock price data,  return
data, company data, and stock returns.
