    Errors Found in Study Materials P2.T7. Operational & Integrated Risk

    Hi Mr David Please refer to the study notes under "Revisions to the Basel II Market Risk Framework" page no 5. You have rightly mentioned that the specific risk charge is 8%, however, the last column is misleading as the Capital Charge under both the long and short positions have been...

    Errors Found in Study Materials P2.T5. Market Risk

    Dear Mr David I guess there is one very trivial error in the study notes on Jorion Chapter 6 : Page 3, last para. You have mentioned A good (aka, accurate) model will produce approximately the number of expected exceptions. For example, over 250 days, a good (aka, accurate) 95.0% VaR model...

    Value at Risk (Varcovar methodology) – FX Forwards

    Dear Mr David, I was referring to following paper by Mr Thomas J Linsmeirer and Mr Neil D Pearson. http://www.exinfm.com/training/pdfiles/valueatrisk.pdf On page 10, FX Forward VaR computation using Varcovar method is illustrated. Assuming a FX Forwards of BUY 10 million GBP and Sell 15...

    VaR using Monte Carlo Simulation (Geometric Brownian Motion)

    Mr David, That was very very kind of you to update my spreadsheet. This spreadsheet will be an asset for not only me but whoever wants to study Monte Carlo. Its giving me message that some links are not getting updated. I will check it tomorrow as it is almost 2am in my country and seriously...

    VaR using Monte Carlo Simulation (Geometric Brownian Motion)

    Mr David I have tried to create an excel to compute VaR using Monte Carlo Simulation (Geometric Brownian Motion). I have defined return as DRIFT + correlated ZValue * Stdev. The Zvalue is arrived at by multiplying NORMSINV(Rand()) values by the Cholesky decomposition matrix. If I use the...

    Geometric Returns of negative interest rates

    Through some resource, I got following feedback – “The return on interest rates should be calculated as a simple difference between two rates. Interest rates themselves are treated as some kind of Return instead of Asset price. Hence, use of Arithmetic as well as Geometric returns in case of...

    Geometric Returns of negative interest rates

    Dear emilioalzamora1 If you allow, I wish to bring to your kind notice few points - (1) I have initiated this thread by quoting the overnight EURO Libors which are negative. Though pure intention of raising this thread was totally academic, however, this is actual problem we are facing. No...

    Geometric Returns of negative interest rates

    Dear Mr Graves Thanks a lot for your comments. Totally Agree with you. But the problem is in my portfolio, I may be having equity as well as debt securities. If I need to construct the correlation matrix, I need to have risk factor returns. I can't have equity returns generated using log...

    Geometric Returns of negative interest rates

    This formula gives something like CAGR. What if there are the intermittent returns and you need to compute the holding period returns? Anyways, I repeat my concern is computing log returns for two days e.g. suppose today's rate is 0.5% while yesterdays rate was say -0.11%. How do I compute LN(...

    Geometric Returns of negative interest rates

    Thanks for your comments. I understand the formula mentioned by you gives holding period Arithemetic Returns with the holding period = 2. I have mentioned above that it is just a crude method of computing average returns. However, my main concern is computations of log returns of mixture of...
