This is a statistical analysis term. When we find many fluctuations in something, we have to analyse its nature.. It may be periodical, or non periodical. If it is periodical, we can prepare a line of best fit.. this means we can estimate the level of fluctuations and our projections vary just as the actuals go. This is line of best fit. There are methods in Statistics to formulate it.
When the fluctuations are sudden, ( like due to political actions some volatile reactions result ) we cannot judge any line which can fit in properly. And there is no line of best fit there.
