Currency basket as asset or base currency in value-at-risk computation
AbstractThis note describes the problem arising from using a currency basket in the computation of value-at-risk. This applies mainly when the basket is used as base currency. A solution based on the modification of the historical time series is proposed. The solution is easy to implement and doesn't have important draw-back.
