Finally, stocks A class and 18 stocks in total composed of 6 years data and different sectors has been added hypothetically created portfolio in practice. Calculated by parametric and nonparametric methods and the results were reviewed with comparison. As a result of the study, the standard deviation of EWMA from parametric methods is significantly higher than the other parametric methods of fixed standard deviation and non-parametric methods of historical simulation.
