The Time Series Forecast study is a technical indicator displaying the statistical trend based on linear regression analysis using the least squares method. Time Series Forecast partially eliminates time lagging effect occurring in Moving Average studies as linear regression value is as close as possible to the values being averaged.

This indicator can be used for predicting future price movements (see the bar plus input description). Note that this type of prediction is purely mathematical as all calculations are based on least squares averaging of previous values.
