One of the effective ways of price risk hedging purposes is using VaR methods. VaR is a generally accepted method that assesses price risk in a single number by using statistical and simulation models. In this study, hypothetical e . . .nergy futures contracts portfolio's daily risk numbers are measured by VaR methods, namely; Historical Simulation and Monte Carlo Simulation. In order to test success of daily VaR numbers, backtesing method is applied. As a result, it is observed that both Historical Simulation and Monte Carlo Simulation methods meet the requirements of Basel Criterion Daha fazlası Daha az
