If statement not replacing matrix elements correctly

1 view (last 30 days)
Hello I have created a nested if loop inside a for loop which tries to iterate on a matrix produced previously from another for loop.
The if statement should basically go through each element in said matrix, if the result is less than zero then equate it to zero, otherwise leave the element as it is.
I have pasted my script below and I am referring specifically to the nested if statement inside the forloop in the end of my script.
%Parameter declaration for coding:
dr = 0.02;
vol = 0.3;
S = 160;
r = 0.04;
T = 3;
simnum = 3 %no of simulations
%Computation of ALL iteration constants
%Step1: Compute K
K = 1.1 * (S-(dr*S)*exp(-r));
%Step2: Compute Dividend Value
dv = dr * S;
%Step3: Compute adjusted S
sadj = S - dv*exp(-r*T);
%Step 4 Computed Discount rate
disc = exp(-r*T);
%Step 5 Computation of Deterministic part
fx = sadj*exp(r-0.5*(vol^2))*T+vol*sqrt(T)
%Simulation for Stochastic part
sim = 1:1:simnum;
a = 1:1:simnum;
Scomp = 1:1:simnum;
%C = 1:1:simnum
cpo = disc*Scomp - K
for i = 1:simnum
a(i) = normrnd(0,1);
Scomp(i) = fx * a(i)
% Payoff matrix creation
cpoff = disc*Scomp - K
%cpoffcorr = zeros(1,simnum)
for i = 1:simnum
if cpoff > 0
cpoffcorr(i) = cpoff
cpoffcorr(i) == 0
% Average and Variance Computation
%CBAR = cpoffcorr/simnum
%CVAR = var(CBAR)

I think you mean:
cpoffcorr = zeros(1,simnum); % yes, pre-allocate
for i = 1:simnum
if cpoff(i) > 0 % check the ith element
cpoffcorr(i) = cpoff(i) % assign using the ith element
cpoffcorr(i) = 0 % use assignment (=) not comparison (==)
However, you can do it without a loop at all:
cpoffcorr = max(0,cpoff)
