    Defining Parameters

    For sure. It was more a general question but a few examples are on page 4, 7, and 14 of chapter 36 of the BT study notes. I basically mean defining the parameters in the equations. So if you have sigma(t,i) and sigma(T,i) in an equation, an explanation of what sigma is (a good guess would be...

    Defining Parameters

    Why is it that most parameters in equations of the study notes are not explicitly defined? It can make it difficult to understand the equations.

    FRM Part 2

    Nicole, thank you for you're reply. I will be looking into Bionic Turtle as an alternative this time around as I did not feel adequately prepared for Part 1 using Schweser. Are you able to give me any estimate on the time candidates generally report studying for Part 2? Thank you.

    FRM Part 2

    Does Bionic Turtle have physical copies of the study material? Would you consider Part 2 to be more or less difficult than Part 1? Would you say more or less time is needed to study for Part 2 than Part 1? I am considering writing Part 2 in Nov 2015 but concerned I may have waited too long. It...

    Expected Shortfall

    That is very helpful! Thank you for the explanation! p.s. Your youtube videos are quite helpful as well (in general).

    Expected Shortfall

    I see, I was thinking that it assigned more weight and probability to the more extreme losses (which is incorrect because that is already factored into the probability density of the returns). The above now makes sense thanks to your help. Thank you!

    Expected Shortfall

    Hi David, thanks for the reply, but unfortunately I do not quite follow the above.

    Expected Shortfall

    Hi, I am confused about expected shortfall. Does it apply equal weightings to all losses past a certain quantile? In the context of a normal distribution, will this bias the expected value towards the lower end of the tail? Thank you for any help!
