The source of data was including monthly average share price of Bank of Kigali (B. K) companies and bralirwa. The study was utilizing maximum likelihood method to estimate the model parameter and the models goodness of fit was assessed by using Q-Q, P-P and density Plot. The size the extreme monthly Rwanda stock market movement was then computed using expected shortfall risk measures at some high quintiles, based on the GPD model. This paper provides a step by step guideline for extreme risk analysis in the R software with several examples.
