Generate monthly resample data from daily close of S&P and Russell 2000, then compute 12 month rolling forward window and lowest value in window vs. opening
# -*- coding: utf-8 -*-
Opens previously downloaded historical daily closing values for
S&P 500 and Russell 2000, computes 12 month window lows versus
opening price for the 12 months. Processes month by month, and also computes
monthly open, close, high, low.
