1 Pricing and calibration in local volatility models via fast quantization Parma, 29 th January Joint work with Giorgia Callegaro and Martino Grasselli
2 Quantization: a brief history Birth: back to the 50 s, due to the necessity to optimize signal transmission, by appropriate discretization procedures; Applications: information theory, cluster analysis, pattern and speech recognition, numerical integration and numerical probability (90 s); Idea: approximating a signal admitting a continuum of possible values, by a signal that takes values in a discrete set; Two types (probability): Vector quantization random variables; Functional quantization stochastic processes; How: numerical procedures mostly based on stochastic optimization algorithms very time consuming.
3 Quantization: technical introduction Given an R d valued random variable X on (Ω, A, P), X L r, quantizing X on a grid Γ = (x 1,..., x N ) consists in projecting X on Γ, following the closest neighbor rule. A grid Γ minimizing the L r mean quantization error X Proj Γ (X ) r = min 1 i N X x i r over all the grids with size at most N is the L r optimal quantizer. The projection of X on Γ, Proj Γ (X ) is called the quantization of X : Proj Γ (X ) = N x i 1 Ci (Γ )(X ) i=1 where C i (Γ ) {ξ R d : ξ x i = min 1 j N ξ x j }, is called the Voronoi partition, or tessellation induced by Γ.
4 Figure: Voronoi diagram for the optimal grid of N (0, I 2 ). The L r mean quantization error goes to zero as the grid size N + and the convergence rate is rules by the socalled Zador Theorem. From a numerical point of view, finding an optimal quantizer may be a very challenging and time consuming task. This motivates the introduction of suboptimal criteria: stationary quantizers.
5 Stationary quantizers Definition: An Nquantizer Γ = {x 1,, x N } inducing the quantization Proj Γ (X ) of X is said to be stationary if E [X Proj Γ (X )] = Proj Γ (X ). Optimal quantizers are stationary; Stationary quantizers Γ are critical points of the distortion function associated with Γ: N D(Γ) := z x i 2 dp X (z). i=1 C i (Γ) Stationary quantizers are interesting insofar they can be found through zero search recursive procedures like Newton s algorithm or fixed point procedures.
6 Step by step marginal quantization : ideas A new quantization approach recently introduced by Pagès and Sagna, Consider a continuoustime Markov process Y dy t = b(t, Y t )dt + a(t, Y t )dw t, Y 0 = y 0 > 0, where W is a standard Brownian motion and a and b satisfy the usual conditions ensuring the existence of a (strong) solution to the SDE; Given T > 0 and {t 0, t 1,..., t M }, with t 0 = 0 and t M = T, = t k t k 1, k 1, the Euler scheme for the process Y is Ỹ tk = Ỹt k 1 + b(t k 1, Ỹt k 1 ) + a(t k 1, Ỹt k 1 ) W Ỹ t0 = Ỹ0 = y 0 where t k = k and W := (W tk W tk 1 ) N (0, );
7 KEY REMARK: for every k = 1,..., M where ) L (Ỹtk Ỹt = x k 1 N ( m k 1 (x), σk 1 2 (x)) (1) m k 1 (x) = x + b(t k 1, x) σk 1 2 (x) = [a(t k 1, x)] 2. IDEA: quantize recursively, using vector quantization, every marginal random variable Ỹt k, given its (Gaussian) conditional distribution given Ỹt k 1 ; It can be seen (see Pagès and Sagna, 2014) that the error made by quantizing the Euler scheme can be controlled, under some mild regularity assumptions on the process.
8 Step by step marginal quantization : stationary quantizers The distortion function at time t k+1, relative to Ỹt k+1, is D k+1 (x) = N i=1 C i (x) (y k+1 x i ) 2 P (Ỹtk+1 dy k+1 ) (2) where N is the (fixed) size of the quantizer x = {x 1, x 2,..., x N }. We are looking for x R N such that D k+1 (x) = 0. QUESTION: Is it possible to apply NewtonRaphson now? ANSWER: NO! We do NOT know the distribution of Ỹt k+1!
9 Using the conditional distribution in (1) we have P(Ỹt k+1 dy k+1 ) = φ mk (y k ),σ k (y k )(y k+1 ) P(Ỹt k dy k )dy k+1 R where φ m,σ is the density function of a N (m, σ 2 ). Due to the discrete nature of the quantizer, the integral in (2) becomes a finite sum; We deduce a recursive procedure to obtain the stationary (here optimal) quantizer at time t k+1, based on the quantizer at time t k, k {1,..., M} (Y 0 = y 0 is not random); The distorsion is continuously differentiable: it is possible to compute the gradient and the Hessian matrix of the distortion function NewtonRaphson faster computations wrt stochastic algorithms.
10 The Quadratic Normal Volatility model Much attention in the financial industry due to its analytic tractability and flexibility (Blacher, 2001; Ingersoll, 1997; Lipton, 2002; Andersen, 2011): dy t = (e 1 Y 2 t + e 2 Y t + e 3 )dw t, Y 0 = y 0 > 0, (3) for some e 1, e 2, e 3 R, where W is taken under the risk neutral measure. Includes, as special cases, the Brownian motion, the geometric Brownian motion and the inverse of a threedimensional Bessel process. We refer to (Andersen, 2011) and (Carr, Fisher and Ruf, 2013) for technical properties of the model. Mimicking a quadratic spot volatility gives some chances to get an implied volatility curve that reproduces the smile and skew effects using a parsimonious number of parameters.
11 Vanilla options in the QNV model REPARAMETRIZATION : dy t = σ (qy t + (1 q)x s (Y t x 0 ) 2 ) dw (t). PRICING: Closedform solutions for vanilla derivatives available (see Andersen, 2011); Solutions depend on the roots of the polynomial in (3); Even the implementations of closed form solutions requires some care; CALIBRATION: must allow for the possibility to switch from the real roots case to the complex roots case without constraints; x 0
12 Numerical results: pricing of Vanilla options Given stationary quantization grids, pricing is immediate: the price (with r = 0) of an European Vanilla Put option on Y with maturity T and strike K, given an Nquantization grid y = (y 1,..., y N ) at t = T and associated optimal quantizer ŶT, is E[(K Y T ) + ] = N ) (K y i ) + P (ŶT = y i. i=1 The dimension of every grid is 20 and we have 10 time steps; Parameters as in Andersen, 2011; Error measure: sum of the squared differences between implied volatilities ( Resnorm ) on 7 strikes, from 85% to 115% of the spot initial value (y 0 = 100) and 6 maturities, from 2 months to 2 years.

14 Numerical results: calibration We work on European Vanilla CallPut option on the Dax Index, as of 19 June 2014; Calibration is done via a standard nonlinear leastsquares optimizer that minimizes ( 2 σ imp n, market n,model) σimp. n Using closed form formulas, it turns out that the implied volatility smile produced by the market is fitted better when the two roots are complex. Closed form formulas do not perform well for short maturities. Short maturities from 2 to 5 months, long maturities from 1 to 3 years, 7 strikes.

16 Numerical results: pricing of barrier options Same model data as before, we fix T = 1 3 and K = 100. We compare the price of upandout put options obtained via the quantization method, with 100dimensional quantizers, with Monte Carlo, with simulations. The time step equal to The benchmark price is computed via Monte Carlo, with 10 3 discretization points in the time grid and 10 6 simulations.

17 Future developments Increasing dimensionality: fast quantization in stochastic volatility models, like Heston, SABR, multiheston, Wishart; Increasing derivatives s complexity: pricing of (more) exotic derivatives; Application to more general discretization schemes?
