Arguments

amount

notionals

price

a vector of prices

timestamp

a vector.

aggregate

TRUE or FALSE

fun

a function

lim

a maximum absolute position size

start

optional time

end

optional time

abs.value

logical. If TRUE, the absolute exposure is computed.

numeric

Details

scale_trades takes a vector of notionals, prices and scales all trades along the paths so that the maximum exposure is 1.

The default fun divides every element of a vector n by max(abs(cumsum(n))). If user-specified, the function fun needs to take a vector of notionals (changes in position.)

split_trades decomposes a trade list into single trades, where a single trade comprises those trades from a zero position to the next zero position.

Value

Either a list or a list-of-lists.

n <- c(1,1,-3,-1,2)
p <- 100 + 1:length(n)
timestamp <- 1:length(n)

split_trades(n, p, timestamp)
split_trades(n, p, timestamp, TRUE)  ## almost like the original series

scale_trades(n, p, timestamp)
scale_trades(n, p, timestamp, TRUE)  ## each _trade_ gets scaled
