    Hello,

    It's not actually forecasting below zero but those are the lower confidence level bounds - see this helpful article for details: https://www.sapanalytics.cloud/resources-predictive-forecasting/

    Hello,

    Is the measure 'Sales Price to customer per MT' something that can only be positive?

    Today, the predictive could show a negative forecast for measures, even ones that can only be positive. Thus, this is not part of the current feature, but arguable should be. I think the best thing to do is register this as an idea at

    https://influence.sap.com/sap/ino/#/campaign/884 (might need to check this idea doesn't already exist)

    Sorry this isn't necessarily resolve your issue, but I hope you now know you're not doing anything wrong! It is though a great idea for a product enhancement.

    Regards, Matthew
