Putting the results in context

As any other method, models are subject to bias. Hence, a good strategy is to not be overly confident the results of a single econometric model. Rather than trusting the results from single models, forecasting research recommends to rely on combined models or, even better, a combined forecast that relies on forecasts from different methods, each of which draws upon different data.
