Let’s say you are going to invest $100 dollars, and the average return per day is 0.152. Now please follow the tutorial to calculate how much your will lose potentially.

Step 1: Create a blank workbook, and enter row headers from A1:A13 as the following screen shot shown. And then enter your original data into this simple table.

Step 2: Now calculate the value at risk step by step:

(1) Calculate the min return with 99% of Confidence lever: In Cell B8 enter =NORM.INV(1-B6,B4,B5) in Excel 2010 and 2013 (or =NORMINV(1-B6,B4,B5) in Excel 2007), and press the Enter key;

(2) Calculate the total value of portfolio: in Cell B9 enter =B3*(B8+1), and press the Enter key;

(3) Calculate the value at risk of every day: in Cell B10 enter =B3-B9, and press the Enter key;

(4) Calculate the total value at risk of one month: in Cell B13 enter =B10*SQRT(B12), and press the Enter key.

So far we have figured out the values at risk of every day and every month. To make the table friendly readable, we go ahead to format the table with following steps.

Save range as mini template (AutoText entry, remaining cell formats and formulas) for reusing in future

Normally Microsoft Excel saves the whole workbook as a personal template. But, sometimes you may just need to reuse a certain selection frequently. Comparing to save the entire workbook as template, Kutools for Excel provides a cute workaround of AutoText utility to save the selected range as an AutoText entry, which can remain the cell formats and formulas in the range. And then you can reuse this range with just one click. Full Feature Free Trial 30-day!

    Hi, thank you for the tutorial. It's very useful. If you had to calculate VaR every day to graph it, how would you do it? I have done historical simulation taking a sampling period from 2002-2012, but I was wondering how to calculate VaR every day to infer differences from the graph.
    Thank you.
