The Copula theory has been widely used in many scientific fields. In this study, we discuss model selection for the Copula theory. We derive the mixed Copula model based on the Kendall rank correlation coefficient. This new method is applied to forecast the value at risk of the portfolio in the foreign exchange market. The results show that the proposed mixed Copula model proposed in this paper is better than the other, commonly used, Copula model.
