In addition an -egen- function -record()- is available in the

-egenmore- package on SSC.

You can get the running/cumulative maximum using subscripting, such as

gen cummax=x in 1

replace cummax=max(x,cummax[_n-1]) in 2/l

If you have panel data or missing data/gaps, you may want to check out using time series operators by using tsset. You can get a cumulative sum using the sum function

gen cumsum=sum(x)

Is there a command in stata that gives the historical maximum of a series? (Not the absolute maximum!; i.e. the historical maximum at time T is the maximum of the observations from time t=0 up until t=T. Similarly, the historical maximum at time t=T+1 is the maximum of all the observations from time t=0 up until t=T=1, and so on; the historical maximum thus changes over time, whereas the absolute maximum can only take one value.

My second question is more straightforward; is there a command to cumulate series in Stata (i.e. to calculate the sum of price increases over time)?
