2 Derivative Contracts Derivatives, also called contingent claims, are contracts based on some underlying assets. A typical option is a contract that gives its holder the right, but not the obligation, to but one unit of a financial (underlying) asset for a predetermined strike (or exercise) price K by the maturity date T.
3 Option The type of option: the option to buy is called a call option; the option to sell is called a put option. The underlying asset: it can be a stock, bond, currency, etc. The expiration date: if the option can be exercised at any time before maturity, it is called an American option; if it can only be exercised at maturity, it is called a European option. The amount of an underlying asset to be purchased or sold. The price of an option is also called the premium.
4 European Options Let S t denote the underlying risky asset such as a stock price. A European option is a contract to pay h S T at a maturity time T, which is path independent.
5 Call and Put Call payoff: h S T = S T K + = mmm S T K, 0 That means if S T > K, the holder will exercise the option to make a profit S T K by buying the stock for the price K and selling it immediately at the market price S T ; otherwise the option is not worthy to be exercised. Put payoff: h S T = K S T + = mmm K S T, 0
6 American Options A holder of an American option can exercise the option at any time before maturity T. Let τ denote the time to exercise the option, which is a stopping time because up to time t T, the holder has the right to hold or exercise the option based on the information flow. Call payoff: h S τ = S τ K + = mmm S τ K, 0 Put payoff: h S T = K S τ + = mmm K S τ, 0
7 Exotic Option Exotic options are those options for which their contracts are not of European or American style defined previously. Barrier options. Ex, for a downandout call option, h S T = S T K + I iiit T S t >B Lookback options. Ex, h = S T inf S t t T Asian options. Ex, h = S T inf t T S t S T 1 T T S 0 t dd + + =
8 Underlying Risky Asset The stock price S t is governed by the geometric Brownian motion under the historical filtered probability space Ω, F, F t, P : ds t = μs t dd + σs t dw t (1) S 0 = x
9 Replication of Trading Strategy A dynamic trading strategy is a pair α t, β t of adapted processes specifying the number of units held at time t of the stock (underlying risky asset) S t and bond (riskless asset) e rr, where r is the riskfree interest rate. At the maturity T, the value this portfolio will replicate the terminal payoff h S T ; namely α T S T + β T e rr = h S T.
10 SelfFinancing Portfolio That is the variations of portfolio value are due only to the variations of the stock price and bond price. d α t S t + β t e rr = α t ds t + rβ t e rr dd In integral form α t S t + β t e rr = α 0 S 0 + β 0 + t t α s ds s + β s de rr, 0 t T 0 0
11 Perfect Replication Based on the arbitrage pricing theory, the fair price of a derivatives is equal to the value of its portfolio: α t S t + β t e rr = P t, S t where P t, x denotes the option price at time t and stock price S t = x.
12 Ito s Formula α t μs t + β t e rr dd + α t σs t dw t = + μs t σ2 2 S 2 P t dd + σs x 2 t α t = t, S t β t = P t, S t α t S t e rr dw t
13 BlackScholes PDE L BB P t, x = 0 With the terminal condition P T, x = h x, where the operator L BB = σ2 x 2 2 x 2 + rr x r is define on the domain of 0, T 0,.
14 Remarks The BlackScholes PDE can be solved either by numerical PDE methods like finite difference methods or by Monte Carlo simulations. The dynamic trading strategy α t, β t is also called hedging strategy by emphasizing the elimination of risks. This strategy requires a holding number of risky asset α t = t, S t, which is called the Delta in financial engineering.
15 Independence of μ By inspecting the BlackScholes PDE, the rate of returns μ in (1) does not appear at all. This is a remarkable feature of the BlackScholes theory that two investors may have completely different speculative view for the rate of returns of the risky asset, but they have to agree that the noarbitrage price P of the derivative does not depend on μ.
16 BlackScholes Formula The price of a European call option admits a closedform solution. C BB t, x = xn d 1 Ke r T t N d 2, where ln x K + r + 1 d 1 = 2 σ2 T t σ T t d 2 = d 1 t, x σ T t N d = 1 2π e u2 2 d dd
17 PutCall Parity r T t C BB t, S t P BB t, S t = S t Ke L BB C BB P BB t, x = 0 with the terminal condition h x = x K, admits a simple solution C BB P BB t, x = r T t x Ke
18 Parameter Estimation Within the BlackScholes formula, there is only one nonobservable parameter, namely the volatility σ. 1. the direct method: given a set of historical stock prices, one can use either (1) the approximation of the quadratic variation of log returns or (2) the maximum likelihood of log returns of estimate σ. 2. the implied method: given the quoted European call or put option prices, one can invert an implied volatility from each quoted option.
19 Change of Probability Measure By Girsanov s Theorem, one can construct a new probability measure P which is equivalent to P so that the drifted Brownian motion W t + μ r t becomes a standard σ Brownian motion, denoted by W t. ds t = μs t dd + σs t dw t μ r = μ + r μ S t dd + σs t d W t + σ t = rs t dd + σs t dw t
20 Remarks 1. the discounted stock price becomes a martingale under P. This is because of d e rr S t = e rr S t σdw t. 2. the discounted value of portfolio becomes a martingale under P. This is because of de rr α t S t + β t e rr = α t e rr S t σdw t. We call such probability measure P as the riskneutral measure and the shifted drift μ r as the σ market price of risk.
21 RiskNeutral Evaluation (I) The trading strategy must replicate the terminal payoff h S T, α T S T + β T e rt = h S T. Since e rr α t S t + β t e rr is a martingale under P, e rr α t S t + β t e rr = E e rr α T S T + β T e rr F t The value of the portfolio is equal to α t S t + β t e rr = E e r(t t) h S T F t = E e r(t t) h S T S t by the Markov property of S t.
22 RiskNeutral Evaluation (II) Based on the definition of the fair price, the option price can be defined as a conditional expectation of the discounted payoff under the riskneutral probability measure P : P t, S t = E e r T t h S T S t.
23 Derivation of The BlackScholes Formula S T = S t eee r σ2 2 P t, S t = E e r T t S t eee r σ2 T t + σ T tz 2 T t + σ T tz K + = e r T t S t eee r σ2 2 T t + σ T tz K + 1 2π e z2 2 dd = = S t N d 1 Ke r T t N d 2
24 Hedging with One Stock d e rr P t, S t = e rr e rr σ2 2 S 2 P t + rs x 2 t t, S t σs t dw t e rr P T, S T = T P 0, S 0 + e 0 rr P 0, S 0 = E e rr h S T S 0 rr t, S t dd + t, S t σs t dw t
25 Martingale Representation Theorem Theorem Let W t,0 t T be a Brownian motion on a probability space Ω, F, F t 0 t T, P and the filtration is generated by this Brownian motion. Let M t, 0 t T be a martingale with respect to this filtration. Then there is an adapted process Γ u, 0 u T, such that M t = M 0 + Γ u 0 t dw u, 0 t T Γ u is typically related to the hedging strategy associated with a trading martingale M t. This theorem only guarantees the existence condition of the hedging strategy. One can use Ito formula to compute Γ explicitly.
26 Arbitrage An arbitrage is a way of trading so that one starts with zero capital and at some later time T is sure not to have lost money and furthermore has a positive probability of having made money Definition An arbitrage is a portfolio value process V t satisfying V 0 = 0 and also satisfying for some time T > 0 P V T 0 = 1, P V T > 0 > 0
27 Fundamental Theorems of Asset Pricing First Theorem If a market model has a riskneutral probability measure, then it does not admit arbitrage. Definition A market model is complete if every derivative security can be hedged. Second Theorem Consider a market model that has a riskneutral probability measure. The model is complete if and only if the riskneutral probability measure is unique.
28 Forward Contract Definition A forward contract is an agreement to pay a specified delivery price L at a delivery date T for the asset price S t at time t. The Tforward price FFF S t, T of this asset, is the value of K that makes the forward contract have noarbitrage price zero at time t. Theorem The Tforward price is FFF S t, T = S t B t, T, where the price of a zerocoupon is B r, T = 1 D t E e T t r udd 1 r t
29 Futures Definition The futures price of an asset whose value at time T is S T is given by the formula FFF S t, T = E S T F t, 0 t T A long position in the futures contract is an agreement to receive as a cash flow the changes in the futures price during the time the position is held. A short position in the futures contract receives the opposite cash flow.
30 ForwardFutures Spread When the (instantaneous) interestrate r t is random, the forwardfutures spread is defined by FFF S 0, T FFF S 0, T = S 0 E D T E S T = 1 E D T E D T S T E D T E S T = 1 E D T CCC D T, S T where CCC D T, S T denotes the covariance of D T and S T under the riskneutral probability measure.
31 Appendix: Girsanov Theorem Let W t be a standard Brownian motion under a probability space Ω, F, F t 0 t T, P. Let θ t be an adapted process. Define Z t = eee t θ s 0 W t = W t + θ s t dw s 1 2 θ s 2 and assume that T E θ 2 s Z2 s dd < 0 Set Z = Z T. Then EZ = 1 and under the probability measure P defined by dp = Z dp T, the process W t,0 t T, is a Brownian motion. 0 t dd 0 dd
