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 P/L 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 hp ES holding period in days |

Matrix of ES whose dimension depends on dimension of hp and cl. If cl and hp are both scalars, the matrix is 1 by 1. If cl is a vector and hp is a scalar, the matrix is row matrix, if cl is a scalar and hp is a vector, the matrix is column matrix and if both cl and hp are vectors, the matrix has dimension length of cl * length of hp.
