Description Usage Arguments Details Author(s) References Examples

View source: R/FrechetVaRPlot2DCl.R

Description

Plots the VaR of a portfolio against confidence level assuming extreme losses are Frechet distributed, for specified range of confidence level and a given holding period.

Usage

1
FrechetVaRPlot2DCl(mu, sigma, tail.index, n, cl, hp)

Arguments

mu

Location parameter for daily L/P

sigma

Scale parameter for daily L/P

tail.index

Tail index

n

Block size from which maxima are drawn

cl

Confidence level and should be a vector

hp

Holding period and should be a scalar

Details

Note that the long-right-hand tail is fitted to losses, not profits.
