For | Mastock Help

Short Name: For

Definition: Signal the beginning of a “For” construction

Usage: For(initial index, number of loops).... Action .... EndFor

Objective:
  • Part of a “For” construction
  • Initial index is the start of the loop, 0 means the most recent data/day
  • Action can be any complex set of instructions, including other If, For or While constructions

Note:
  • Does not return anything

Examples:
  • OBV:
  • leVol = reverse(volume)
  • leClose = reverse(close)
  • leClose1 = shiftedRight(leClose,1)
  • test = leClose < leClose1
  • accumulate(obv0,0)
  • for(0,histoRange)
  • if(var(test,0)) then
  • dummyPlus = var(leVol,0) + var(obv0,0)
  • accumulate(obv0,dummyPlus)
  • else
  • dummyMoins = 0 - var(leVol,0) + var(obv0,0)
  • accumulate(obv0,dummyMoins)
  • endif
  • endfor
  • notifyresult(reverse(obv0))
