tESPlot2DCL {Dowd} | R Documentation |

## Plots t- ES against confidence level

### Description

Plots the ES of a portfolio against confidence level, assuming that L/P is t distributed, for specified confidence level and holding period.

### Usage

```
tESPlot2DCL(...)
```

### Arguments

`...` |
The input arguments contain either return data or else mean and standard deviation data. Accordingly, number of input arguments is either 4 or 5. In case there 4 input arguments, the mean and standard deviation of data is computed from return data. See examples for details. returns Vector of daily geometric return data mu Mean of daily geometric return data sigma Standard deviation of daily geometric return data df Number of degrees of freedom in the t distribution cl ES confidence level and must be a vector hp ES holding period and must be a scalar |

### Examples

```
# Computes ES given geometric return data
data <- runif(5, min = 0, max = .2)
tESPlot2DCL(returns = data, df = 6, cl = seq(.9,.99,.01), hp = 60)
# Computes v given mean and standard deviation of return data
tESPlot2DCL(mu = .012, sigma = .03, df = 6, cl = seq(.9,.99,.01), hp = 40)
```
