LECTURE 10
Example: slide 13
S0 = 50, K = 52, r = 5% T = 2y , m = 2, t= 1 y, u = 1.2 ,, d = 0.8
Pricing European put option :
P = 
 = 0.6282
The payoff for a put is K ST , or 0
Put = [ p2 x fuu + 2p(1-p)fud + (1-p)2 fdd] e-r x T
= [ p2 x 0 + 2p(1-p) 4 + (1-p)2x 20 ] e-5% x 2
= 4.1923
Now, to standardize everyone’s value of u and d , we can use sigma ( the closest factor that affects the
stock price ) to get :
- u = e t
- d = e- t
- p = 

Note that u and d are inversely related.
For American put options: Note that you can exercise it at all possible times till the maturity date. You
would have multiple step pay offs unlike the European options which miss out on the middle steps.
What one would do is :
- compare intrinsic value with the European option pay off
- if intrinsic value ( ST K) is more than the European pay off , you will choose intrinsic value as
optimal and red it.
- If its negative, choose the European value
- Note: you would have to change the option value before that step by calculating intrinsic value
and discounting it.
- Note that the first time you hit intrinsic value, all the other numbers would be intrinsic and RED
-

OneClass has been such a huge help in my studies at UofT especially since I am a transfer student. OneClass is the study buddy I never had before and definitely gives me the extra push to get from a B to an A!

Balancing social life With academics can be difficult, that is why I'm so glad that OneClass is out there where I can find the top notes for all of my classes. Now I can be the all-star student I want to be.

Description
LECTURE 10 Example: slide 13 S0= 50, K = 52, r = 5% T = 2y , m = 2, ∆ t= 1 y, u = 1.2 ,, d = 0.8 Pricing European put option : 5% x 1 P = e − 0.8= 0.6282 1.2−0.8 The payoff for a put is K – S , Tr 0 Put = [ p x f + 2p(1-p)f + (1-p) f ] e 2 -r x T uu ud dd 2 2 -5% x 2 = [ p x 0 + 2p(1-p) 4 + (1-p) x 20 ] e = 4.1923 Now, to standardize everyone’s value of u and d , we can use sigma ( the closest factor that affects the stock price ) to get : - u = eσ √∆t t - d = e-σ √∆ er∆t−d - p = u−d Note that u and d are inversely related.

You would have multiple step pay offs unlike the European options which miss out on the middle steps.
