# resamplets

Downsample data

`resamplets` is not recommended. Use `timetable` instead. For more information, see Convert Financial Time Series Objects fints to Timetables.

## Syntax

``newfts = resamplets(oldfts,samplestep)``

## Description

example

````newfts = resamplets(oldfts,samplestep)` downsamples the data contained in the financial time series object `oldfts` every `samplestep` periods. For example, to have the new financial time series object contain every other data element from `oldfts`, set `samplestep` to `2`.`newfts` is a financial time series object containing the same data series (names) as the input `oldfts`.```

## Examples

collapse all

1. Create a `fints` object.

`dates_and_times = (now:now+5)'`
```dates_and_times = 1.0e+05 * 7.3840 7.3840 7.3840 7.3841 7.3841 7.3841 ```
` tsobj = fints(dates_and_times, randn(6,1))`
```Warning: FINTS is not recommended. Use TIMETABLE instead. For more information, see Convert Financial Time Series Objects (fints) to Timetables. > In fints (line 169) ```
```tsobj = desc: (none) freq: Unknown (0) {'dates: (6)'} {'times: (6)'} {'series1: (6)'} {'07-Sep-2021'} {'12:30' } {[ 0.5377]} {'08-Sep-2021'} {'12:30' } {[ 1.8339]} {'09-Sep-2021'} {'12:30' } {[ -2.2588]} {'10-Sep-2021'} {'12:30' } {[ 0.8622]} {'11-Sep-2021'} {'12:30' } {[ 0.3188]} {'12-Sep-2021'} {'12:30' } {[ -1.3077]}```
2. Calculate the natural logarithm using `log`.

`newfts = resamplets(tsobj,2)`
```Warning: FINTS is not recommended. Use TIMETABLE instead. For more information, see Convert Financial Time Series Objects (fints) to Timetables. > In fints/resamplets (line 18) newfts = desc: RESAMPLES of freq: Unknown (0) {'dates: (3)'} {'times: (3)'} {'series1: (3)'} {'03-Sep-2021'} {'17:10' } {[ 1.4193]} {'05-Sep-2021'} {'17:10' } {[ 0.1978]} {'07-Sep-2021'} {'17:10' } {[ -0.8045]}```
