Generalized Cross Validation (GCV) has been considered a popular model for choosing the complexity of statistical models, it is also well known for its optimal properties. Mallow’s CP criterion (MCP) has been considered a powerful tool which is used to select smoothing parameters for spline estimates with non-Gaussian data. Most of the past works applied Generalized Cross Validation (GCV) and Mallow’s CP criterion (MCP) smoothing methods to time series data, this methods over fits data in the presence of Autocorrelation error. A new Smoothing method is proposed by taking the hybrid of Generalized Cross Validation (GCV) and Mallow’s CP criterion (MCP). The predicting performance of the Hybrid GCV-MCP is compared with Generalized Cross Validation (GCV) and Mallow’s CP criterion (MCP) using data generated through a simulation study and real-life data on all SITC export and import price index in Nigeria between the years, 2001-2018, performed by using a program written in R and based on the predictive Mean Score Error (PMSE) criterion. Experimental results obtained show that the predictive mean square error (PMSE) of the three smoothing methods decreases as the sample size and smoothing parameters increases. The study discovered that the Hybrid GCV-MCP smoothing methods performed better than the classical GVV and MCP for both the simulated and real life data.
