Analyzing Stock Price Time Series with Fortran Arrays, Part 1

From Modern Fortran by Milan Curcic

Stock price analysis and prediction has been an increasingly popular topic since the early days of high-level programming, and Fortran has been used in the bowels of many financial trading and banking systems, mainly thanks to its robustness, reliability, and efficiency. In this article, we’ll work with a dataset that is freely available, small enough to be easily downloaded, and yet large enough to demonstrate the power of Fortran arrays.
