Abstract

In this article, we discuss finding the optimal k of (i) kth simple moving average, (ii) kth weighted moving average, and (iii) kth exponential weighted moving average based on simulated MA(q) model. We run a simulation using the three above examining methods under specific conditions. The main finding is that, 5th Exponential Weighted Moving Average (5-th EWMA) Autoregressive Integrated Moving Average (ARIMA) model is the best forecasting model among others, which means the optimal k = 5. For Turkish Telecommunications (TTKOM), stock market real data reveals the similar results of the simulation study.
