I am trying to impliment a seemingly simple analysis in Quanstrat, but I am stuck. Let's say that I have 50 futures in my data frame. Each future is a time series of OHLC data. I want to at each time stamp, compare the value of an indicator for each future and rank the futures accordingly. For example, I want to rank the futures based on each's 5-day return. How do I impliment this in Quanstrat?
So far, the only way I came up with go get around this is to pre-process each future's data then store the ranking data for each future in its own data set. But this is not flexible and cumbersome.
Thank your for any suggestions, obviously I don't have a reproducible code yet.
