An important aspect of business for every commercial bank is trading financial instruments in capitalmarkets. Trading in various classes and types of securities exposes banks to new forms of risks thatare not well understood in developing countries. Market risk represents the risk that the changes inmarket prices and rates will reduce the value of security or a portfolio. In trading activities, market riskarises from two sources: open or unhedged positions taken by a bank and from imperfect correlationbetween market positions. In this paper the author examines the implications for a commercial bank ofusing the standardized approach developed by Basel committee on Banking supervision formeasuring market risk versus the internally developed rating systems for measuring market risk, suchas VaR. Using internally developed models, such as VaR, can allow banks to lower their capitalcharge and free extra resources for conducting normal business activities. The concept ofstandardized measurement method for market risk together with its’ pros and cons is presented andcompared to the characteristics and general quantitative and qualitative standards required for internalmodels of measurement
