    Miller - End of Chapter question - Hypothesis testing and Confidence Intervals

    Question 4: Suppose you invest in a product whose returns follow a uniform distribution between −40% and +60%. What is the expected return? What is the 95% VaR? The expected shortfall? Answer: The expected return is +10%. The 95% VaR is 35% (i.e., 5% of the returns are expected to be worse than...
