Periodic average of FINTS object
avgfts = peravg(tsobj) avgfts = peravg(tsobj, numperiod) avgfts = peravg(tsobj, daterange)
tsobj | Financial time series object |
numperiod | (Optional) Integer specifying the number of data points over which each periodic average should be averaged |
daterange | (Optional) Time period over which the data is averaged |
peravg calculates periodic averages of a financial time series object. Periodic averages are calculated from the values per period defined. If the period supplied is a string, it is assumed as a range of date string. If the period is entered as numeric, the number represents the number of data points (financial time series periods) to be included in a period for the calculation. For example, if you enter '01/01/98::01/01/99' as the period input argument, peravg returns the average of the time series between those dates, inclusive. However, if you enter the number 5 as the period input, peravg returns a series of averages from the time series data taken 5 date points (financial time series periods) at a time.
avgfts = peravg(tsobj, numperiod) returns a structure avgfts that contains the periodic (per numperiod periods) average of the financial time series object. avgfts has field names identical to the data series names of tsobj.
avgfts = peravg(tsobj, daterange) returns a structure avgfts that contains the periodic (as specified by daterange) average of the financial time series object. avgfts has field names identical to the data series names of tsobj.
Note: peravg calculates periodic averages of a FINTS object. Periodic averages are calculated from the values per period defined.

If the period is entered as numeric, the number represents the number of data points to be included in a period for the calculation. |
If you enter 01-Jan-2001::03-Jan-2001 as the period input argument, peravg returns the average of the time series between those dates, inclusive. However, if you enter the number 5 as the period input, peravg returns a series of averages from the time series data, taken 5 date points at a time.
