Forecasting with Indices

Forecasting with indices permits the viewer to review information in numerical format as well as with a chart. In doing so, the viewer can better understand the information that is presented. A better understanding means that better decisions can be made for the individual or the individual’s company.

When a company can make informed and educated decisions about the future and start strategies the company can try to stay ahead of the competition.
