`ma1` is a vector, because in each for-loop-iteration you are
overwriting `ma1` with another vector.  You have 99 pointless
computations and only hh=100 is available after the for-loop.

I think you intend something like:

pkg load financial

DevPeriod = 16;
Equity = magic(100);

for hh=1:columns(Equity)
  ma1(:,hh) = movavg(Equity(:,hh), DevPeriod, DevPeriod, 0);

ma2 = movavg (Equity, DevPeriod, DevPeriod, 0);

Note that there is an issue with movavg.  It cannot process matrices
like for `ma2`.  Please see for
