P = [0.3 0.1 0.1; 0.3 0.9 0.1; 0.4 0 0.8]; % Transition Matrix
P0 = [0.1 0.9 0]; %initial probability Vector

Here's a start:
P = [0.3 0.1 0.1; 0.3 0.9 0.1; 0.4 0 0.8]; % Transition Matrix
P0 = [0.1 0.9 0]; %initial probability Vector
C0 = cumsum(P0);
M = length(P0);
N = 100;
x = nan(N,1);
x(1) = (M + 1) - sum(rand <= C0);
for k = 2:N
x(k) = ...
end

@jndmwx: then you need to learn to use the documentation. You can search the documentation using any good internet search engine. I just searched for "MATLAB nan", and this is the first result that was returned:
"For example, NaN(3,4) returns a 3-by-4 array of NaN values".
