## 3. Data

## 4. Results of the Empirical Study

_{min}= 2, Eyeball with the tuning parameter w = 0.01, GH and Danielsson methods systematically produce high threshold estimates, since the median exceeds the 98th percentile. The findings support the results of Danielsson et al. (2016), who argued that the Eyeball and KS Dis methods tend to pick the threshold close to the maximum of distribution. For shorter time-series (in sub-periods), the RT1, RT2 for k

_{min}= 2 and Danielsson methods are the most restrictive and systematically set the threshold at too high levels to be used in financial applications. This finding is in line with the observation by Scarrott and MacDonald (2012), who pointed out that the RT1 approach is unreliable for a small k despite the weighting by ${i}^{\beta}$. In turn, Reiss and Thomas (2007) suggested using alternative distance metrics or weighting schemes when we deal with limited data. Methods based on minimizing the asymptotic MSE, especially the bootstrap-based methods, do not perform well in empirical studies (Danielsson et al. 2016). Similarly, Ferreira et al. (2003) noted that these methods do not give satisfactory results for samples of size under approximately 2000.

## 5. Conclusions

_{aux}= $\sqrt{{n}^{+}}$) methods, their maximum is below the 97.5th percentile. The PS method sets the optimal threshold much lower than the other methodologies (below the 95th percentile for the entire research period and sub-periods). The estimates of PS are relatively volatile, suggesting a difference from the fixed percentage of the total sample size, commonly presented in the literature. The PS method is based on a rather simple algorithm; thus, it can be easily implemented in a risk management process.
