To loop through a list of stock tickers in MATLAB, you can use a for loop along with an array or cell array to store and access the tickers. Here's an example:

  1. Define the list of stock tickers:
1
tickers = {'AAPL', 'GOOGL', 'AMZN', 'MSFT'};


or,

1
tickers = ["AAPL", "GOOGL", "AMZN", "MSFT"];


  1. Loop through the tickers:
1
2
3
4
5
6
for i = 1:length(tickers)
    currentTicker = tickers{i}; % Access the i-th ticker
    % Your code here using the currentTicker
    fprintf('Processing ticker: %s
', currentTicker);
end


Within the for loop, you can perform any desired operations or calculations using the current ticker, like fetching its data or analyzing it. The example code simply prints the ticker for demonstration purposes.


Note: In MATLAB, indices start at 1, so the loop variable i starts from 1 and goes up to the length of the tickers list. Also, notice the use of curly braces {} when indexing the tickers cell array (tickers{i}) or double quotes "" when using an array for string tickers (tickers(i)).
