R Question

I need a suggestion on how I get the results

of my regression analysis into an object.

I wan't to perform the regression analysis row wise and

with a window of 20 days.

The object Slope should save the results (slopes) of each days regressions analysis over the window.

`#Loading Library`

require(quantmod)

#Initiation of Example

mc_result <- matrix(sample(c(1:200)), ncol = 200, nrow =1)

mc_result1 <- matrix(sample(c(1:200)), ncol =200, nrow =1)

mc_result <- rbind(mc_result, mc_result1)

a <- c(1:200)

Slope <- matrix(ncol=2, nrow=181)

Caution this Loop that does not work.

The Loop should apply Rollapply row wise

and save the results for each day in the object Slope.

However, this is how the result should look like, but with changing Slope values. At the moment the Slope Value is stable and I don't know why.

`for (i in 1:2) {`

Slope[,i] <- rollapply(data =mc_result[i,], width=20,

FUN = function(z)

summary(lm(mc_result[i,] ~ a, data = as.data.frame(z)))$coefficients[2], by.column = FALSE)

}

Answer

I think what you want is the following (in your code none of mc_result[i,] or a is rolling over the indices in the data, that's why the linear regression coefficients are not changing, since you are training on the same dataset, only z is changing, you need to change the code to something like the following):

```
#Loading Library
require(quantmod)
#Initiation of Example
mc_result <- matrix(sample(c(1:200)), ncol = 200, nrow =1)
mc_result1 <- matrix(sample(c(1:200)), ncol =200, nrow =1)
mc_result <- rbind(mc_result, mc_result1)
a <- c(1:200)
Slope <- matrix(ncol=2, nrow=181)
for (i in 1:2) {
Slope[,i] <- rollapply(data = 1:200, width=20,
FUN = function(z) {
summary(lm(mc_result[i,z] ~ a[z]))$coefficients[2]
}, by.column = FALSE)
}
head(Slope)
[,1] [,2]
[1,] 1.3909774 2.0278195
[2,] 1.0315789 2.8421053
[3,] 1.5082707 2.8571429
