This should come close. Haven't had my morning caffeine fix yet, so it may need a little work. But I think the concept does what you need.

-----------------------
prog drop _all
prog testroll, rclass
reg investment income consumption
scalar lnow = linvestment[\$inow]
global inow = \$inow + 1
test income = lnow
ret sca f = r(F)
ret sca p = r(p)
ret sca inow = \$inow
ret sca lnow = lnow
end

webuse lutkepohl,clear
global inow 20
testroll
ret li

global inow 20
rolling f=r(f) p=r(p) inow=r(inow) lnow=r(lnow) in 21/l, w(12): testroll
