Description

Calculate the rolling maximum of an xts time series over a sliding window (lookback period).

Usage

1
roll_max(x_ts, look_back)

Arguments

x_ts

An xts time series containing one or more columns of data.

look_back

The size of the lookback window, equal to the number of data points for calculating the rolling sum.

Details

For example, if look_back=3, then the rolling sum at any point is equal to the sum of x_ts values for that point plus two preceding points.

The initial values of roll_max() are equal to cumsum() values, so that roll_max() doesn't return any NA values.

The function roll_max() performs the same operation as function runMax() from package TTR, but using vectorized functions, so it's a little faster.

Value

An xts time series with the same dimensions as the input series.

Examples

# Create xts time series
x_ts <- xts(x=rnorm(1000), order.by=(Sys.time()-3600*(1:1000)))
rutils::roll_max(x_ts, look_back=3)
