The problem is with the changing volume of assets which changes the weights. I want to use the formula for portfolio risk but cannot figure out the weights. Should taking average weight of an asset work?

  • $\begingroup$ The most common approach for a changing portfolio is to compute the portfolio returns (from the stock prices and positions held), then from the times series of portfolio returns compute the variance. $\endgroup$
