## Figure of t- VaR and pdf against L/P

### Description

Gives figure showing the VaR and probability distribution function against L/P of a portfolio assuming P/L are normally distributed, for specified confidence level and holding period.

### Usage

```
tVaRFigure(...)
```

### 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 cl VaR confidence level and should be scalar hp VaR holding period in days and should be scalar |

### Examples

```
# Plots normal VaR and pdf against L/P data for given returns data
data <- runif(5, min = 0, max = .2)
tVaRFigure(returns = data, df = 7, cl = .95, hp = 90)
# Plots normal VaR and pdf against L/P data with given parameters
tVaRFigure(mu = .012, sigma = .03, df=7, cl = .95, hp = 90)
