We typically scale volatility with the square root rule, but keep in mind the key assumption (i.i.d. returns). We APOLOGIZE that the bottom-right corner is obstructed by the web camera. It contains Expected return = +10.0% such that the Absolute VaR = -10%*10/250 + 2.326*20%*sqrt(10/250); i.e., the drift scales linearly.
