Money Stock Measures
Billions of Dollars, Not Seasonally Adjusted
Weeklys, ending Monday
M2 is a broader measure of the money and 'near money' supply in the US, including savings deposits, money market securities, mutual funds, and other time deposits. This is indicative of income and assets in the US.
The data shows autocorrection, seasonality and a non-normal distribution. The data should be differenced and seasonally adjusted. While the Order Norm transformation, provides the best normality, the Square Root variable will also perform well.
Data is unable to be distributed by time or geography. The roll up method used is Weighted Average.

Data shows autocorrectation indicating a need for differencing
The ACF indicates 1 order differencing is appropriate.
Following first order differencing, no further differencing is required based on the differenced ACF at lag one of -0.04
The Kwiatkowski-Phillips-Schmidt-Shin (KPSS) test, KPSS Trend = 0.36 p-value = 0.01 indicates that the data is not stationary.
The Shapiro-Wilk test returned W = 0.95 with a p-value =0.00 indicating the data does not follow a normal distribution.
A skewness score of -0.01 indicates the data are fairly symmetrical.
Hartigan's dip test score of 0.03 with a p-value of 0.03 inidcates the data is multimodal
