Comutational and Alied Mathematics Journal. Vol. 1, No. 1, 15, Abstract his aer resents the fast Fourier transform method for the valuation of Euroean style otions inthemoney, atthemoney and outofthemoney. he fast Fourier transform method utilizes the characteristic function of the underlying instrument s rice rocess. A fast and accurate numerical solution by means of the Fourier transform method was develoed. he fast Fourier transform method is useful for emirical analysis of the underlying asset rice. his method can also be used for ricing contingent claims when the characteristic function of the return is known analytically. 1. Introduction he BlackScholes model and its extensions constitute the maor develoments in modern finance. Much of the recent literature on otion valuation has successfully alied Fourier analysis to determine otion rices such as [1],[3], [5], ust to mention a few. hese authors numerically solved for the delta and the riskneutral robability of finishing inthemoney, which can be combined easily with the underlying asset rice and the strike rice to generate the otion value. Unfortunately, this aroach is unable to harness the considerable comutational ower of the fast Fourier transform [7], which reresents one of the most fundamental advances in scientific comuting. Furthermore, though the decomosition of an otion rice into robability elements is theoretically attractive as exlained in [], it is numerically undesirable due to discontinuity of the ayoffs [4]. For more literature see ([8], [9], [1] ust to mention a few.. Fast Fourier ransform Method he fast Fourier transform is an efficient algorithm for comuting the discrete Fourier transform of the form; 1 N 1 πi m( ex x N (1 wheren is tyically a ower of two. (1 reduces the number of multilications in the required N summations from an order of N to that of N ln ( N, a very considerable reduction.

Consider the valuation of Euroean call otion. Let the risk neutral density of S logs be f ( S. he characteristic function of this density is given by ϕ ( v ivs e π f ( S (4 he rice of a Euroean call otion with maturity and exercise rice K denoted by C ( k is given by where S C ( ex( r( e K f ( S (5 K e (6 Substituting (6 into (5 yields S C ( ex( r( e e f ( S (7 lim C ( lim ex( ( ( k k S r e e f S S (8 From (8, it is clearly seen that Euroean call rice given by (7 is not square integrable function. We consider a modified version of (7 derived by [4] given by α c ( e C (, α > (9 Equation (9 is square integrable in over the entire real line. Using the definitions of the Fourier transform and its inversion, we have that πik ( ( ( ( F c cɶ k e c d (1 1 1 π ik π F ( c( c ( e cɶ dk (11 Substituting (11 into (1 and solving further, then the new call value is obtained as α 1 1 π ik α ɶ π ik ɶ C ( e ( ( e c k dk e e c k dk π π (1 (13 is a direct Fourier transform and lends itself to an alication of fast Fourier transform method.

Carr and Madan [4] established that if α the denominator of (17 vanishes when v, inducing a singularity in the integrand. Since the fast Fourier transform evaluates the integrand at v, the use of the factore α. Now, we get the desired otion rice in terms of cɶ using Fourier inversion of the form: α 1 iv C ( e e c dv π ɶ (19 Using basic traezoidal rule, (19 can be comuted numerically as: where 1 C ( e ( η N 1 α iv e c v π ɶ ( v η,,1,,3,...

Unfortunately, for very short maturities, the call value aroaches to its nonanalytic intrinsic value causing the integrand in the inversion formula of Fourier transforms to vary above and below a mean value and therefore remains tedious to be integrated numerically. We introduce an alternative aroach called the ime Value Method roosed by [4] to mitigate this numerical inconvenience. his aroach works with time values only, which is quite similar to the revious aroach. But in this context the call rice is obtained by means of the Fourier transform of a modified time value, where the modification involves a hyerbolic sine function instead of exonential function. Let z reresent the time value of outof themoney (OM, that is, for S < k we have the call rice for z and for S > k we have the ut otion for z ( k. Scaling S 1 for simlicity, z is defined by ( >, < ( <, > (7 z e r e S e k Ι f ( S + e r e S e k Ι f ( S k S k k S k Where f ( S is the riskneutral density of the logrice S and Ι denotes the indicator function.

Numerical Exeriment and Discussion of Results his section resents numerical exeriment and discussion of results as follows: Numerical Examle We consider the ricing of inthemoney (IM and atthemoney (AM and outofthemoney (OM Euroean call otion with the following arameters given below: κ.8, θ.5, σ.5, v.8, ρ {.5,,.5}, S 6, r.8,.75, K {, 4, 6,8,1} δ is (35 We examine the effects of correlation coefficient, strike rice and volatility of volatility; on otion values using the fast Fourier transform method. he results generated are shown in the ables 1A and 1B for inthemoney (IM and atthemoney (AM and outofthemoney (OM Euroean call otions resectively. able 1A. he Effects of Correlation ρ and Exercise PriceK on inthemoney (IM and atthemoney (AM Euroean Otions Values K ρ.5 ρ ρ able 1B. he Effects of Correlation ρ, and Exercise PriceKon outofthemoney (OM Euroean Otions Values K ρ.5 ρ ρ Discussion of Results ables 1A and 1B show the effect of correlation coefficient ρ and strike ricek on IM, AM and OM otions values using fast Fourier transform. he rice of otion and the time value for Ninemonth call otions associated with volatility of volatility σ.5 are relatively close as we can see from the ables 1A and 1B for IM, AM and OM resectively. he effect of correlation coefficient deends on the relationshi between the current underlying rice of the asset and strike rice. For a ositive correlation coefficient, the rice of outthemoney call otion becomes lower. For negative correlation coefficient, the rice of inthemoney and atthemoney call otions becomes higher. When the correlation coefficient is zero, the effect of volatility of

Conclusion he fast Fourier transform method is used because of its advantages when comared to the analytic solution. Using the fast Fourier transform with risk neutral aroach rovides simlicity in calculations.an analysis of the fast Fourier transform method reveals that the volatility of volatility σ and the correlation coefficient ρ have significant imact on otion values, esecially longtime otion, stock returns and negatively correlated with volatility and these negative correlations are imortant for the valuation of Euroean style otions.
