This study examines four margin models in order to identify which one offers the most effective margin estimates for the futures contract traded on the Korea Exchange (KRX). The models considered in the study include the KRX model which is currently adopted by the exchange, the historical simulation (HS) model, the exponentially weighted moving average (EWMA) model, and the generally autoregressive conditional heteroscadasticity (GARCH) model. We backtest the four models in order to examine the accuracy and efficiency of their estimates. We find that the required margins estimated by the KRX and HS models are larger than those estimated by the EWMA and GARCH models, and that among the four models the KRX model produces the lowest violation and failure rates, indicating that the current margin requirements set by the KRX are excessively conservative. Our analysis further indicates that the EWMA and GARCH models are superior to the others in terms of the accuracy and efficiency with the EWMA model having a edge over the GARCH model. Overall, these results suggest that the KRX may consider changing its margin model to either the EWMA or GARCH model.
