Sample text

We could also use one line of code and the result should be the same, but splitting up long or complicated lines of code into multiple lines makes it easier to follow. 2012 above. First, the variable name for the date is not meaningful and too hard to use on a regular basis. Second, we already have a date variable, so the index of dates is redundant. Therefore, we would want to rename the first variable and then change the index into an identifier for the observation number. 2012. To change the index, we use the rownames command.

UTC is commonly referred to as Greenwich Mean Time (GMT). For our current purpose, this should not affect our results and could be ignored. Yahoo Finance Weekly and Monthly Volume is the Average Volume for the Period and Not the Total Volume for the Period There is an option to download weekly or monthly data from Yahoo Finance. However, the weekly and monthly volume data reported on Yahoo Finance is the average volume for the period. That is, Yahoo Finance reports the average weekly volume or average monthly volume when we choose to download Yahoo Finance data of a lesser frequency.

4 Keeping First Three Rows and Last Row In this book, we will show intermediate data output to guide us when implementing the models. We could use the head and tail commands, but that would unnecessarily use up too much space as each command would generate six observations. As an alternative, we will show the first three observations and the last observation of the data. The reason for this is that the first and last observation tells us the range of dates we use. , daily, weekly, monthly). Please note that from this point forward, we show Yahoo Finance output using this technique when possible and as long as we do not lose any relevant information in doing so.
