The object structure and data types are specifically designed to make integration with MATLAB and native FinMetrics functions as easy as possible. The FinMetrics user interface application and MATLAB scripting may be utilized to facilitate or automate complex and repetitive tasks, as well as extend the functionality of the environment.
