Description

The SimpleMovAvg function computes the simple moving average of points in a series.

Usage

  td_simple_mov_avg_mle (
      data = NULL,
      target.columns = NULL,
      include.first = FALSE,
      window.size = 10,
      data.sequence.column = NULL,
      data.partition.column = NULL,
      data.order.column = NULL
  )

Arguments

data

Required Argument.
Specifies the input tbl_teradata that contains the columns.

data.partition.column

Required Argument.
Specifies Partition By columns for "data"
. Values to this argument can be provided as a vector, if multiple columns are used for partition.
Types: character OR vector of Strings (character)

data.order.column

Required Argument.
Specifies Order By columns for "data".
Values to this argument can be provided as a vector, if multiple columns are used for ordering.
Types: character OR vector of Strings (character)

target.columns

Optional Argument.
Specifies the names of the input columns for which the moving average is to be computed. If you omit this argument, then the function copies every input column to the output tbl_teradata but does not compute moving average.
Types: character OR vector of Strings (character)

include.first

Optional Argument.
Specifies whether to include the starting rows in the output tbl_teradata. If you specify TRUE, the output columns for the starting rows contain NA, because their simple moving average is undefined.
Default Value: FALSE
Types: logical

window.size

Optional Argument.
Specifies the number of previous values to include in the computation of the simple moving average.
Default Value: 10
Types: integer

data.sequence.column

Optional Argument.
Specifies the vector of column(s) that uniquely identifies each row of the input argument "data". The argument is used to ensure deterministic results for functions which produce results that vary from run to run.
Types: character OR vector of Strings (character)

Value

Function returns an object of class "td_simple_mov_avg_mle" which is a named list containing object of class "tbl_teradata".
Named list member can be referenced directly with the "$" operator using name: result.

Examples

    # Get the current context/connection
    con <- td_get_context()$connection
    
    # Load example data.
    loadExampleData("simplemovavg_example", "ibm_stock")

    # Create object(s) of class "tbl_teradata".
    ibm_stock <- tbl(con, "ibm_stock")

    # Compute the simple moving average for "stockprice".
    # This also includes the first 9 rows with moving average NA.
    td_simple_mov_avg_out <- td_simple_mov_avg_mle(data = ibm_stock,
                                                   data.partition.column = "name",
                                                   data.order.column = "period",
                                                   target.columns = "stockprice",
                                                   include.first = TRUE,
                                                   window.size = 10
                                                   )
