# Naive Prediction Indicator

A naive forecasting model for equity instruments is a special case of the moving average forecasting where the number of periods used for smoothing is one. Therefore, the forecast of price value for a given trading day is simply the observed value for the previous period. Due to the simplistic nature of the naive forecasting model, it can only be used to forecast up to one period.Investors can use prediction functions to forecast stock prices and determine the direction of financial instruments such as stocks, funds, or ETFs's future trends based on various well-known forecasting models. However, exclusively looking at the historical price movement is usually misleading. Macroaxis recommends to always use this module together with analysis of historical fundamentals such as revenue growth or operating cash flow patterns.

This model is not at all useful as a medium-long range forecasting tool of price. This model is simplistic and is included partly for completeness and partly because of its simplicity. It is unlikely that you'll want to use this model directly to predict equity instruments. Instead, consider using either the moving average model or the more general weighted moving average model with a higher (i.e., greater than 1) number of periods, and possibly a different set of weights.
