Investment Risk Analysis On Bitcoin With Applied of VaR-APARCH Model

Irwan Kasse, Andi Mariani, Serly Utari, Didiharyono D.


Investment can be defined as an activity to postpone consumption at the present time with the aim to obtain maximum profits in the future. However, the greater the benefits, the greater the risk. For that we need a way to predict how much the risk will be borne. Modelling data that experiences heteroscedasticity and asymmetricity can use the Asymmetric Power Autoregressive Conditional Heteroscedasticity (APARCH) model. This research discusses the time series data risk analysis using the Value at Risk-Asymmetric Power Autoregressive Conditional Heteroscedasticity (VaR-APARCH) model using the daily closing price data of Bitcoin USD period January 1 2019 to 31 December 2019. The best APARCH model was chosen based on the value of Akaike's Information Criterion (AIC). From the analysis results obtained the best model, namely ARIMA (6,1,1) and APARCH (1,1) with the risk of loss in the initial investment of IDR 100,000,000 in the next day IDR 26,617,000. The results of this study can be used as additional information and apply knowledge about the risk of investing in Bitcoin with the VaR-APARCH model.
