For an observed Sharpe ratio, estimate the standard error. The following methods are recognized:

- t
The default, based on Johnson & Welch, with a correction for small sample size. Also known as

`'Lo'`

.- Mertens
An approximation to the standard error taking into skewness and kurtosis of the returns distribution.

- Bao
An even higher accuracty approximation using higher order moments.

There should be very little difference between these except for very small sample sizes.

an estimate of standard error.

The units of the standard error are consistent with those of the
input `sr`

object.
