The publisher has developed their market forecasting methodology that, in addition to the main market values, also takes into account other macroeconomic factors (global or local) that might have some bearing on the market under study. Taking all the necessary data, a robust forecast is developed using an algorithm that involves both static (multivariate) as well as dynamic (time-series) regression analysis. Special care is taken to make sure their algorithm passes the necessary statistical tests, and the mean prediction for future years obtained is reliable with a very high confidence level. Following data validation, the analysts begin to write the report presenting insights with the help of charts, graphs, and tables.
