I never even knew I needed this function until I saw it. This function basically makes your date ticks scale to the appropriate time scale, be it years, quarters or months. Very nice for that portfolio watching MATLAB GUI that I never seem to have the time to build. ZoomAdaptiveDateTicks.m

This should prove useful. It’s always nice to find out about previously unknown features. There is one small issue that is easily fixed:

The ‘demo’ feature uses the ‘today’ function which, apparently, only ships with the Financial toolbox. If you replace the line
dates = today – linspace(1169,0,15000)’;
with
dates = floor(now) – linspace(1169,0,15000)’;

it will work without the ‘today’ function.
