    Time Series Analysis with Triple exponential smoothing




    What would be the best formula to forecast a weeks worth of daily data?

    It depends. Does your data exhibit trends, seasonality, cycles, or combinations thereof?

    Thank you for replying. It does exhibit trends and seasonality. I am forecasting daily call volume, and our highest call volume is March-April. I am using a holt winters equation, but my struggle is forecasting a week in advance with data that has moving holidays.

    Holt-Winters or ARIMA would be the appropriate options for trends + seasonality. Unfortunately, my experience with forecasting is at a more macro level where moving holidays are not an issue.
