Hello,
I use the following to calculate percentage change:
B = (diff(VMA)./(VMA(1:end-1))*100;
What this does is (x1 - x2) / x2....
How can i make it where i pick the prior value, for example i want the rate of change but looking back 10 values...therefore:
B = (x1 - x10) / x10
Thanks!

Not sure exactly what you are after, an example would be helpful.
B=(x(1:10)-x(10:19))./x(10:19);

Thanks for helping me out. I want this calculation be done for all my array.Example out put on original code:
VMA B
5.247743 0
5.7918 10.36745 = ((5.7918 - 5.247743)/5.247743)*100
6.1518 6.215684 = ((6.1518 - 5.7918)/5.7918)*100 and so on...
6.311829 2.601329
6.429629 1.866337
6.456114 0.411932
6.562157 1.642518
6.376371 -2.83117
6.187729 -2.95847
6.108229 -1.2848
6.107386 -0.0138
6.111971 0.075085
5.996186 -1.89441
5.778271 -3.63422
5.484386 -5.08605
5.324986 -2.90643
5.232614 -1.73468
5.097386 -2.58434
5.072029 -0.49745
5.118757 0.921299
5.323328 3.996504
what i would like its something like B = ((5.323328 - 5.232614)/5.232614)*100 = 1.73363 be able to change how many values back i want the difference and percentage change changed.
