Time varying volatility cannot easily be incorporated into binomial models because of variable timesteps and resultant bushy trees make cashflow and maturity dates difficult to incorporate. Trinomial models are better used

Question

Which of the following statements is most accurate?

Choice 1

Time varying volatility cannot be incorporated into binomial models because of variable timesteps and resultant bushy trees, trinomial models must be used

Choice 3

Time varying volatility cannot be incorporated into and lattice model (binomial, trinomial, etc).

Choice 4

Time varying volatility can be easily incorporated into any lattice model

If we say that variance is mean reverting and follows it’s own stochastic differential equation governed by its is the mean volatility where ξ is the volatility of the variance V = mean volatility α is the mean reversion rate Which of the following SDEs represents time varying volatility? Which of the following statements is false?

( αV −V )dz + ξ V dt

d = V

( αV −V )dz + ξ V dt

d = V

( αV −V )dt + ξ V dz

d = V

ξ(V −V )dt + α Vd z

d = V

With antithetic variance the mean of the jth normally distributed samples εj and -εj is zero.

With antithetic variance, more accurate estimates can be derived from M pairs of CT , j , CT , j

(

)

than from 2M of CT , j

With antithetic variance, M pairs of CT , j , CT , j is computationally cheaper than 2M of CT , j

(

)

The perfect negative correlation of the normally distributed samples εj and -εj increased the standard error of the estimate

A European call option with a strike price of €19 matures in two weeks. Given the information from Question 6, what is the value of the option at Node(2,2)? Using data from Q6 and Q 7 and again using an additive binomial model with equal jump probabilities, what is the value of the call option at node (0,0)? Estimate delta, the rate of change of the option price relative to the change in stock price
