Forecasting models employed in this study include random walk, historical mean model, moving average model and simple regression model. This study uses error statistic to obtain the best forecasting models through the model comparison and rankings. There are four types of error statistic to evaluate the best forecasting models, namely Mean Error (ME); Mean Absolute Error (MAE); Root Mean Square Error (RMSE); and Mean Absolute Percent Error (MAPE).
