how to get descriptive statistics in one graph?

Postby wheinz » Mon Mar 18, 2013 3:32 pm

He there,

I was wondering if there is any way I can get descriptive statistics of several series in a single graph? For example I have 1 to 5 year holding period returns (5 series) and I need a graph with both the means and the standard deviations of the different maturities.

Kind regards,

Thomas

Only by creating separate group containing the mean and std deviations. For example, if your series are in a group called G, then type the following:

Code: Select all

show @rmean(g) @rstdev(g)


Then click on View->Graph and hit ok.

Dear Gareth,

Thanks for the fast reply! I think this might be what I need, but could you please elaborate on how I can adapt this method to my case? I have uploaded a screenshot to make things a bit clearer hopefully. The means and std.devs are the different series means and std.devs

Nope, it isn't clear what you're doing.
