    Many people start using statistical methods in inappropriate situations: Accountants often use MATs ( Moving average Totals ) for financial forecasting when they should be using Line of Regression over variable start/end points or MAD ( Mean Average Deviation ) to detect anomalies etc. For some people seasonality is a mere distraction !.
    The attached pdf has some interesting models but rather boring explanations.
