Hi,(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Please see the attached Excel file.

I have a sample of 70 data pairs. The correlation between X and Y is -0.68. The OLS regression coefficient is statistically significant as shown in the file. However, with a R^2 of 0.40, I am not sure if my model would be good enough to forecast Y.

Can you please take a look?

Thanks.
