Unformatted text preview: AMS517 Homework 1 (Due Feb 24) 1. The file intel d logret.txt contains daily log returns of Intel stock from July 9, 1986 to June 29, 2007. Compute the 99% 1day and 10day VaR for a long position of $1 million using the following methods: (a) GARCH(1 , 1) model with standard normal t ; (b) ARMA(1 , 1)GARCH(1 , 1) model with t having the standardized Student tdistribution whose degrees of freedom are to be estimated from the data; (c) the GEV distribution for extreme (negative) returns with subperiod length of 20 trading days. 2. Consider a European call option with parameters as follows: current stock price S , strike K , riskfree rate r , volatility rate , and time to maturity T years. Assuming a geometric Brownian motion for the stock price process S t , use the deltanormal valuation to compute the 95% VaR and ES over a horizon of 5 days for (a) a short position and (b) a long position....
