MATLAB and Morningstar connect over the Java API available in both products. MATLAB end users can pull Morningstar core data as well as optional data sets into MATLAB for analysis. Client proprietary data can be uploaded into the Morningstar database and be accessed in MATLAB. Once analysis has been run, users can easily push the data back onto their Commodity DataServer for historical record keeping. Back-testing, neural networks, Monte Carlo simulation, and risk management will benefit from using the computational power of MATLAB while pulling Morningstar high-quality data. The data query language allows for easy historical analysis, and the full functionality of the query language is available to MATLAB users to extract the raw data into MATLAB as well as pull in historical analysis results for further testing.
