Using FirstSorteValue Inside Above function - How to?

Hi there!

I have a table with quotations of price, like:

So, I create a table to show only the last price for each month like (most recent for each month):

Now, for each month, I'd like to show the previous cote, so I add the following column:

But there is an issue in my approach: when the year change, using Above function, I can't get the previous value.

Is there a way to fix it?

To generate the data serie, I used the following script:

temp:

  LOAD * inline [

  Date_02 Values_02

  '04/01/11' 32

  '05/01/11' 24

  '24/05/11' 27

  '01/10/11' 43

  '04/10/11' 46

  '09/11/11' 33

  '11/02/12' 46

  '23/02/12' 36

  '22/05/12' 43

  '19/06/12' 24

  '11/08/12' 46

  '08/12/12' 20

  '30/12/13' 39

  '04/09/13' 23

  '15/09/13' 32

  '07/11/13' 20

  '24/11/14' 45

  '07/12/14' 22

  '24/12/14' 42

  '07/01/14' 20

  '24/01/14' 42

  '10/02/14' 17

  '18/02/14' 42

] (delimiter is ' ');

SalesSerie_01:

     Load Date_02 as Date,

         Year(Date_02) as Year,

         Month(Date_02) as Month,       

         Date(MonthStart(Date_02),'YYYY MMM') as YearMonth, 

         Values_02 as [Price Cote]

    Resident temp;

   

Drop table temp;
