Reading Abstract:
*** Excerpt from book *** This chapter looks at liquidity issues and how they affect the estimation of market risk measures. Liquidity issues affect market risk measurement not just through their impact on our standard measures of market risk, but also because effective market risk management involves an ability to estimate and manage liquidity risk itself.We therefore need to be able to estimate liquidity risk or liquidity at risk, if you will. Furthermore, since liquidity problems are particularly prominent in market crises, we also need to address how to estimate crisis-related liquidity risks.
 
 
Reading Contents:
14.1 Liquidity and liquidity risks
