چکیده

We propose a new method for pricing options based on GARCH models with filtered historical innovations. In an incomplete market framework, we allow for different distributions of historical and pricing return dynamics enhancing the model flexibility to fit market option prices. An extensive empirical analysis based on S&P 500 index options shows that our model outperforms other competing GARCH pricing models and ad hoc Black–Scholes models. We show that the flexible change of measure, the asymmetric GARCH volatility and the nonparametric innovation distribution induce the accurate pricing performance of our model. Using a nonparametric approach, we obtain decreasing state price densities per unit probability as suggested by economic theory and corroborating our GARCH pricing model. Implied volatility smiles appear to be explained by asymmetric volatility and negative skewness of filtered historical innovations.

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...

Robust Value at Risk Prediction∗

This paper proposes a robust semiparametric bootstrap method to estimate predictive distributions of GARCH-type models. The method is based on a robust estimation of parametric GARCH models and a robustified resampling scheme for GARCH residuals that controls bootstrap instability due to outlying observations. A Monte Carlo simulation shows that our robust method provides more accurate VaR fore...

Pricing American Options when the Underlying Asset follows GARCH processes

As extensions to the Black-Scholes model with constant volatility, option pricing models with time-varying volatility have been suggested within the framework of generalized autoregressive conditional heteroskedasticity (GARCH). However, application of the GARCH option pricing model has been hampered by the lack of simulation techniques able to incorporate early exercise features. In the presen...

Dynamic Option Pricing Model Based on the Realized-GARCH-NIG Approach

In this paper, we take the advantage of high frequency data to develop option pricing model and select the Realized GARCH model to describe the volatility of assets, use NIG distribution to describe the distribution of underlying assets, and also build the Realized-GARCH-NIG model to price the option. Finally, we obtain the dynamic option pricing model based on the Realized-GARCH-NIG approach. ...
