Hi
I would like to plot one time series which is able to show the whole number in y axis not 10^(n)
The following is my code.
y = yahoo;
Dataset = fetch(y, '^HSI','Close','2012-01-01','2012-02-01');
hsiobj = fints (Dataset(:,1),Dataset(:,2));
plot(hsiobj); legend('HSI');xlabel('Date'); ylabel('HSI');
I want to y axis showing 21000 instead of 2.1*10^4 etc.
Thanks so much Jessica

This page describes how to apply any kind of numeric fomatting to your axes tick labels.

Yeah I deleted my answer after I realized that num2str doesn't work properly, but found that num2cell does. Glad it worked for ya! :)

Using num2cell instead of num2str.
My answer is the following
y = yahoo;
Dataset = fetch(y, '^HSI','Close','2012-01-01','2012-02-01');
hsiobj = fints (Dataset(:,1),Dataset(:,2));
plot(hsiobj); legend('HSI');xlabel('Date'); ylabel('HSI');
set(gca, 'YTickLabel', num2cell(get(gca, 'YTick')))
Many Thanks=)
