I've been going through various examples on how to use lapply when the list in question has multiple parts but I can't seem to get things working.
I have a function that computes open_close volatility as follows: close_open <- function (OHLC, n = 10, N = 252, ...) { Cl1 <- lag(OHLC[, 4]) OHLC <- try.xts(OHLC, error = as.matrix) s2o <- 18.59 * runSD(log(OHLC[, 1]/Cl1), n) reclass(s2o, OHLC) } I have a list object stocks that has 909 xts OHLC objects: > class(stocks) [1] "list" > length(stocks) [1] 909 I want to compute the open_close volatility for every component in the list stock by using lapply. I have tinkered with various variants of lapply(stocks, function(x) open_close(x, n=10, N=252, ...)) I get errors like so: Error in FUN(X[[1L]], ...) : '...' used in an incorrect context Any guidance on how I can achieve my goal would be greatly appreciated. THank you. |
Don't add the ... into your call.
open_close(x, n=10, N=252) not open_close(x, n=10, N=252, ...))

However, now I get the following: > lapply(stock, function(x) open_close(x, n=10, N=252)) debugging in: dimnames.xts(x) debug: { .Call("dimnames_zoo", x) } Browse[2]> debug: .Call("dimnames_zoo", x) Browse[2]> c Error in dimnames(cd) <- list(as.character(index(x)), colnames(x)) : 'dimnames' applied to non-array I tried to debug this but it seems internal to the lapply call. Any idea?

Seemed like there was a problem with my data in the list. Some of the list components were empty - seems like bloomberg populated some of the tickers with no data. I need to put in error checking to make sure the data is populated correctly.
Thank you Jeff for all your help. |
These are the types of things that the list would have been much
better at helping you with if you had provided a reproducible example. Of course, in the process of trying to make the reproducible example, you probably would have found the answer yourself. ;-) On Fri, Dec 30, 2011 at 11:10 AM, algotr8der <[hidden email]> wrote: > Seemed like there was a problem with my data in the list.
