چکیده

We derive analytically the first four conditional moments of the integrated variance implied by the GARCH diffusion process. From these moments we obtain an analytical closed-form approximation formula to price European options under the GARCH diffusion model. Using Monte Carlo simulations, we show that this approximation formula is accurate for a large set of reasonable parameters. Finally, we use the closed-form option pricing solution to shed light on the qualitative properties of implied volatility surfaces induced by GARCH diffusion models. aInstitute of Finance, University of Southern Switzerland, Lugano, CH. bMathematical Institute, University of Oxford, Oxford, UK. ∗Corresponding author: Claudia Ravanelli, University of Southern Switzerland, Institute of Finance, Via Buffi 13, CH-6900, Lugano, tel: +41 (0)91 912 47 86.

A Closed-Form GARCH Option Pricing Model

This paper develops a closed-form option pricing formula for a spot asset whose variance follows a GARCH process. The model allows for correlation between returns of the spot asset and variance and also admits multiple lags in the dynamics of the GARCH process. The single-factor (one-lag) version of this model contains Heston’s (1993) stochastic volatility model as a diffusion limit and therefo...

A New Stock Model for Option Pricing in Uncertain Environment

The option-pricing problem is always an important part in modern finance. Assuming that the stock diffusion is a constant, some literature has introduced many stock models and given corresponding option pricing formulas within the framework of the uncertainty theory. In this paper, we propose a new stock model with uncertain stock diffusion for uncertain markets. Some option pricing formulas on...

Option Pricing on Commodity Prices Using Jump Diffusion Models

In this paper, we aim at developing a model for option pricing to reduce the risks associated with Ethiopian commodity prices fluctuations. We used the daily closed Unwashed Lekempti grade 5 (ULK5) coffee and Whitish Wollega Sesame Seed Grade3 (WWSS3) prices obtained from Ethiopia commodity exchange (ECX) market to analyse the prices fluctuations.The natures of log-returns of the prices exhibit a...

Preference-Free Option Pricing with Path-Dependent Volatility: A Closed-Form Approach

This paper shows how one can obtain a continuous-time preference-free option pricing model with a path-dependent volatility as the limit of a discrete-time GARCH model. In particular, the continuous-time model is the limit of a discrete-time GARCH model of Heston and Nandi (1997) that allows asymmetry between returns and volatility. For the continuous-time model, one can directly compute closed...

Jump Starting GARCH: Pricing Options with Jumps in Returns and Volatilities

This paper considers the pricing of options when there are jumps in the pricing kernel and correlated jumps in asset returns and volatilities. Our model nests Duan’s GARCH option models where conditional returns are constrained to being normal, as well as extends Merton’s jump-diffusion model by allowing return volatility to exhibit GARCH-like behavior. Empirical analysis on the S&P 500 index r...
