My doubt is that whether we can apply non-linear smoothing to a almost linear data ( without one or 2 discontinuity)(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I have attached the pic in which the red data is the smoothed one. Blue is the original one.

I multiplied each point with an increasing like 1, 1.1, 1.2, 1.3, 1.4..........so on

My question is : is this valid way to remove discontinuity or to make a linear correlation stronger ??

thanks
