3 Binomial model for the stock price Continuous random model for the stock price: ds = µsdt + σsdw Sergei Fedotov (University of Manchester) / 7
4 Binomial model for the stock price Continuous random model for the stock price: ds = µsdt + σsdw The binomial model for the stock price is a discrete time model: The stock price S changes only at discrete times t, 2 t, 3 t,... Sergei Fedotov (University of Manchester) / 7
5 Binomial model for the stock price Continuous random model for the stock price: ds = µsdt + σsdw The binomial model for the stock price is a discrete time model: The stock price S changes only at discrete times t, 2 t, 3 t,... The price either moves up S Su or down S Sd with d < e r t < u. Sergei Fedotov (University of Manchester) / 7
6 Binomial model for the stock price Continuous random model for the stock price: ds = µsdt + σsdw The binomial model for the stock price is a discrete time model: The stock price S changes only at discrete times t, 2 t, 3 t,... The price either moves up S Su or down S Sd with d < e r t < u. The probability of up movement is q. Sergei Fedotov (University of Manchester) / 7
7 Binomial model for the stock price Continuous random model for the stock price: ds = µsdt + σsdw The binomial model for the stock price is a discrete time model: The stock price S changes only at discrete times t, 2 t, 3 t,... The price either moves up S Su or down S Sd with d < e r t < u. The probability of up movement is q. Let us build up a tree of possible stock prices. The tree is called a binomial tree, because the stock price will either move up or down at the end of each time period. Each node represents a possible future stock price. Sergei Fedotov (University of Manchester) / 7
8 Binomial model for the stock price Continuous random model for the stock price: ds = µsdt + σsdw The binomial model for the stock price is a discrete time model: The stock price S changes only at discrete times t, 2 t, 3 t,... The price either moves up S Su or down S Sd with d < e r t < u. The probability of up movement is q. Let us build up a tree of possible stock prices. The tree is called a binomial tree, because the stock price will either move up or down at the end of each time period. Each node represents a possible future stock price. We divide the time to expiration T into several time steps of duration t = T/N, where N is the number of time steps in the tree. Sergei Fedotov (University of Manchester) / 7
9 Binomial model for the stock price Continuous random model for the stock price: ds = µsdt + σsdw The binomial model for the stock price is a discrete time model: The stock price S changes only at discrete times t, 2 t, 3 t,... The price either moves up S Su or down S Sd with d < e r t < u. The probability of up movement is q. Let us build up a tree of possible stock prices. The tree is called a binomial tree, because the stock price will either move up or down at the end of each time period. Each node represents a possible future stock price. We divide the time to expiration T into several time steps of duration t = T/N, where N is the number of time steps in the tree. Example: Let us sketch the binomial tree for N = 4. Sergei Fedotov (University of Manchester) / 7
10 Stock Price Movement in the Binomial Model We introduce the following notations: S m n is the nth possible value of stock price at timestep m t. Sergei Fedotov (University of Manchester) / 7
11 Stock Price Movement in the Binomial Model We introduce the following notations: S m n is the nth possible value of stock price at timestep m t. Then Sn m = u n d m n S0 0, where n = 0,1,2,...,m. S0 0 is the stock price at the time t = 0. Note that u and d are the same at every node in the tree. Sergei Fedotov (University of Manchester) / 7
12 Stock Price Movement in the Binomial Model We introduce the following notations: S m n is the nth possible value of stock price at timestep m t. Then Sn m = u n d m n S0 0, where n = 0,1,2,...,m. S0 0 is the stock price at the time t = 0. Note that u and d are the same at every node in the tree. For example, at the third timestep 3 t, there are four possible stock prices: S 3 0 = d3 S 0 0, S3 1 = ud2 S 0 0, S3 2 = u2 ds 0 0 and S3 3 = u3 S 0 0. At the final timestep N t, there are N + 1 possible values of stock price. Sergei Fedotov (University of Manchester) / 7
13 Call Option Pricing on Binomial Tree We denote by C m n the nth possible value of call option at timestep m t. Sergei Fedotov (University of Manchester) / 7
14 Call Option Pricing on Binomial Tree We denote by C m n the nth possible value of call option at timestep m t. Risk Neutral Valuation (backward in time): C m n = e r t ( pc m+1 n+1 Here 0 n m and p = er t d u d. ) + (1 p)cm+1 n. Sergei Fedotov (University of Manchester) / 7
15 Call Option Pricing on Binomial Tree We denote by C m n the nth possible value of call option at timestep m t. Risk Neutral Valuation (backward in time): C m n = e r t ( pc m+1 n+1 Here 0 n m and p = er t d u d. ) + (1 p)cm+1 n. Final condition: C N n = max ( S N n E,0 ), where n = 0,1,2,...,N, E is the strike price. Sergei Fedotov (University of Manchester) / 7
16 Call Option Pricing on Binomial Tree We denote by C m n the nth possible value of call option at timestep m t. Risk Neutral Valuation (backward in time): C m n = e r t ( pc m+1 n+1 Here 0 n m and p = er t d u d. ) + (1 p)cm+1 n. Final condition: C N n = max ( S N n E,0 ), where n = 0,1,2,...,N, E is the strike price. The current option price C0 0 is the expected payoff in a riskneutral world, discounted at riskfree rate r: C0 0 = e rt E p [C T ]. Example: N = 4. Sergei Fedotov (University of Manchester) / 7

25 Matching volatility σ with u and d From the first equation we find q = eµ t d u d. This is the probability of an up movement in the real world. Sergei Fedotov (University of Manchester) / 7
26 Matching volatility σ with u and d From the first equation we find q = eµ t d u d. This is the probability of an up movement in the real world. Substituting this probability into the second equation, we obtain e µ t (u + d) ud e 2µ t = σ 2 t. Sergei Fedotov (University of Manchester) / 7
27 Matching volatility σ with u and d From the first equation we find q = eµ t d u d. This is the probability of an up movement in the real world. Substituting this probability into the second equation, we obtain Using u = d 1, we get e µ t (u + d) ud e 2µ t = σ 2 t. e µ t (u + 1 u ) 1 e2µ t = σ 2 t. This equation can be reduced to the quadratic equation. (Exercise sheet 4, part 5). Sergei Fedotov (University of Manchester) / 7
28 Matching volatility σ with u and d From the first equation we find q = eµ t d u d. This is the probability of an up movement in the real world. Substituting this probability into the second equation, we obtain Using u = d 1, we get e µ t (u + d) ud e 2µ t = σ 2 t. e µ t (u + 1 u ) 1 e2µ t = σ 2 t. This equation can be reduced to the quadratic equation. (Exercise sheet 4, part 5). One can obtain u e σ t 1 + σ t and d e σ t. These are the values of u and d obtained by Cox, Ross, and Rubinstein in Recall: e x 1 + x for small x. Sergei Fedotov (University of Manchester) / 7
