Date: Sunday 31st January 2010 04:32:05 UTC (over 7 years ago)
I'm still trying to figure out some of the methods that are available in pandas. Here is a short example that plots a measure for stock price volatility. ''' A quick look at volatility of stock returns for 2009 Just an exercise to find my way around the pandas methods. Shows the daily rate of return, the square of it (volatility) and a 5 day moving average of the volatility. No guarantee for correctness. Assumes no missing values. colors of lines in graphs are not great uses DataMatrix and WidePanel to hold data downloaded from yahoo using matplotlib. I haven't figured out storage, so the download happens at each run of the script. '''
