# this test is to proivde warnings when there is not enough data points
### NOTE: this test assumes that stress_VaR and stress_ES start from a 
###       Monte Carlo sample, that is each data point has equal weight.


# for stress_VaR we need that the is NO dta point between VaR and q.

x <- 1:10
alpha <- 0.5
old_q <- quantile(x,alpha,type = 1)

new_q <- 5.5
# stress VaR from 5 to 5.5 - same probability
