    Forecasting, what method to use




    I am stuck on what statistical analysis method I can use to forecast using past data.

    This is for a Hotel that has been open for four months, I need to fill in the yellow on attached Excel spreadsheet. Can anyone help or point me in the right direction?

    4 months is not enough data to predict anything reliably. You can not capture seasonality for one thing.
