I recommend you look at the instructions manual but here is the code for it: VaR(R = NULL, p = 0.95, ..., method = c("modified", "gaussian", "historical", "kernel"), clean = c("none", "boudt", "geltner"), portfolio_method = ...

Translation invariance of a risk measure $\rho$ is defined as $$ \rho(X+k) = \rho(X)-k, $$ where $X$ is a random variable such that $\rho(X)$ exists and $k$ is a constant. The meaning is that if I add an amount $k$ to my risky positions then the risk is reduced by this amount. For VaR we consider the case that $X$ has a continuous distribution and that it ...
