Naive Prediction

When using the naïve prediction, it is good for only a time series. Knowing how to compare and use data is important because there are hundreds upon hundreds of ways to analyze data and you have to be sure you are effectively analyzing the data.




Another aspect to look using naïve prediction is there could be seasonality in the market you are examining and this approach may not be the best to use. There are other factors to keep in mind such as drift and a shift in the average.
