If it happens too soon, the test fails the VaR model.

It is unlikely that too many exceptions come from a correct VaR model.

Profits and losses are expressed in monetary units and represent value changes in a portfolio.

The corresponding VaR limits are also given in techniqurs units. The most straightforward test is to compare the observed number of exceptions, xto the expected number of exceptions. This allows to link your profile to this item. Check on the provider’s web page whether it is in fact available.

Use Rt to denote the actual return or profit and loss observed on day t. At the closing of the following day, the actual profits and losses for the portfolio are known and can be compared to the VaR estimated the day before. If the data suggests that the probability of exceptions is different than pthe VaR model is rejected. Read about how we use cookies. This page has been translated by MathWorks.

Using technoques probabilities from the binomial distribution or a normal approximation, the bin function uses a normal approximation. Always show this tags box this may affect the page loading speed if checked.

From the properties of a binomial distribution, you can build a confidence interval for the expected number of exceptions. Christoffersen proposed a test to measure whether the probability of observing an exception veerifying a particular day depends on whether an exception occurred. The toolbox supports these VaR backtests:
