Question description

Moving average forecasting models are  powerful tools

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.

  • Create  trend-moving averages with the following values form: 10, 100, and 200.  Graph the data with Excel.
  •  
  • Create  centered-moving averages with the following values form: 10, 100, and  200. Graph the data with Excel.
  •  
  • How do  the moving averages for the same values of m compare between a  trend-moving average and a centered-moving average?
  •  
  • Explain  how these moving averages can assist a
    stock analyst in determining the  stocks’ price direction. Provide
