what to use when reshape is not good anymore?please some help
Posted: Sep 6, 2013 1:52 AM

I am just starting to learn matlab and I would appreciate very much if you could help me...

I am stuck with calculating the returns between some hours and for each day..
For some date was going ok the following method:
(now the price is between that hours)
n=length(price);
% The number if days
%(79 is the number of observations within one day)
ndays = n/79;
price_d = reshape(price,79,ndays);
%I take returns for each day
returns_d = log(price_d(2:79,:))- log(price_d(1:78,:));

However now I have another data where the number of observations are not anymore the same for each day..So in one day I have 79 in another 30,75 observations within a day.Therfore i CANNOT use anymore RESHAPE..:(

How should I do in order to have sorted the observations(prices) according to each day? So to have similar thing as before: row with the prices and column with prices corresponding to each day..
