SimpleExpSmoothing.fit(smoothing_level=None, optimized=True)[source]

fit Simple Exponential Smoothing wrapper(…)

Parameters: smoothing_level (float, optional) – The smoothing_level value of the simple exponential smoothing, if the value is set then this value will be used as the value. optimized (bool) – Should the values that have not been set above be optimized automatically? results – See statsmodels.tsa.holtwinters.HoltWintersResults HoltWintersResults class

This is a full implementation of the simple exponential smoothing as per [1].
