[Rd] Run t-test on multiple time series

I tried the following:  

    t1 <- t.test(securities[,3:42], factors[,2:41], var.equal=TRUE)  

However, this gives me just a single t-score. Note: the numeric values that I need are in indices 3 to 42 for securities and 2 to 41 for factors.  

I'm pretty new with R so I was wondering if I could use something similar to the following where I can run some function that would calculate against all values (all meaning each security or each factor):  

> x <- c(1, 2, 3, 4, 5)

> y <- x+1

> y

  [1] 2 3 4 5 6  

Or do I need to iterate through the list of securities and factors and generate a t-score for each pair one at a time?  


Please be aware that, notwithstanding the fact that the pers...{{dropped}}
