chart.Bar

wrapper for barchart of returns

A wrapper to create a chart of periodic returns in a bar chart. This is a difficult enough graph to read that it doesn't get much use. Still, it is useful for viewing a single set of data.

Usage
chart.Bar(R, legend.loc = NULL, colorset = (1:12), ...)

charts.Bar(R, main = "Returns", cex.legend = 0.8, cex.main = 1, ...)

Arguments
R

an xts, vector, matrix, data frame, timeSeries or zoo object of asset returns

legend.loc

places a legend into one of nine locations on the chart: bottomright, bottom, bottomleft, left, topleft, top, topright, right, or center

colorset

color palette to use, set by default to rational choices

any other passthru parameters, see plot

main

sets the title text, such as in chart.TimeSeries

cex.legend

sets the legend text size, such as in chart.TimeSeries

cex.main

sets the title text size, such as in chart.TimeSeries

Details

This is really a wrapper for chart.TimeSeries, so several other attributes can also be passed.

Creates a plot of time on the x-axis and vertical lines for each period to indicate value on the y-axis.
