idx=0; % index initialization
nCol=size(y,2); % array column size
% Next index on range [1,nCol], increment loop counter
idx=mod(idx,nCol)+1; idx=idx+1;

% do whatever else...

One can also write the pointer logic as

idx=idx+1; if idx>nCol, idx=1; end

if like.

Whichever way you do it, for maintaining the last N computations in a
circular buffer there's no reason at all to actually shift data every

If you want the final results saved in chronological order on
termination of the simulation, say, _THEN_ you can do the reordering once.
