(Hint: The inverse of a normal distribution with a 99% confidence level=2.325) Apple 1day 99% VaR=100,000*2.325=232,500 10day 99% VaR=232,500*sqrt(10)=735,000 Yahoo 1day 99% VaR=150,000*2.325=348,700 10day 99% VaR=348,700*sqrt(10)=1,102,700 d) Using your answers to part b and c, please show if there are any benefits from diversification in terms of VaR. (735,000+1,102,700) 1,551,100=286,600 is the reduction in VaR therefore benefit from diversification....
