I'm sorry, I just realized something that may solve your problem quicker...

Your original post mentioned %tbsimple. simple.stbcal is an example
that is distributed with Stata. It is not a complete business
calendar. Are you using your own business calendar or did you try to
use simple.stbcal to format your panel data? If you used simple, you
would only have defined values over the range 11/1/2011 to 11/30/2011.

By accident, I replied to Thomas's e-mail & not the list. For the list
(to catch you up):

Hi Rebecca,

However, this does not take into account if there are no trades one
day where is could've been a trade. (As in the example with no trade
on Tuesday)

I'm considering the liquidity of corporate bonds, so the number of no
trades on an actual trading/business day is one way to measure
I do have a variable called consecutive, which is zero if no trade on
a business day, and 1 else, but I had to export the dataset to Excel
to make it. This  quickly become quite time-consuming..

Anyways, thanks again!
