Market Risk is exposure to the uncertain market value of a portfolio. Market risk is managed with a short-term focus, unlike business risk which is managed with a long term goal. Conventionally, the best way to measure market risk is using a Value at Risk calculation. The four standard market risk factors are Equity Risk, Interest Rate Risk, Currency Risk, and Commodity Risk.
