Limitations of moving averages

1) Equal weighing along with disregard to how more recent data is more relevant.

2) Moving average ignores data outside the period of the average hence it does not fully utilize available data.

3) Where there is an underlying seasonal variation, forecasting along with unadjusted moving average can be misleading.
