Sharpe ratio

Hi guys,

I am working on a project for school, and I was wondering if I could calculate the sharpe ratio by  SAS?

My dataset consists of daily returns of mutual funds (=colom ret fund) and the return of their benchmarks (colom market)

I first tried to do this manual in excel, but with my 660 000 datapoints, I quickly gave it up.

Can anyone help me?

Thanks a lot in advance

Re: Sharpe ratio


I also found this paper, but I don't know how to put that in my code?

I am not so good at SAS, so I am sorry if I ask stupid questions...
