4. Briefly explain the put-call parity. Explain why the arguments leading to put-call

parity for European options cannot be used to give a similar result for American

options.

5. Consider an exchange-traded call option contract to buy 500 shares with a strike

price of $40 and maturity in 4 months. Explain how the terms of the option contract

change when there is (a) a 10% stock dividend and (b) a 4-for-1 stock split.

6. A US investor writes five naked call option contracts. The option price is $3.50, the

strike price is $60.00, and the stock price is $57.00. What is the initial margin

requirement?

7. What is a lower bound for the price of a four-month call option on a non-dividendpaying stock when the stock price is $28, the strike price is $25, and the risk-free

interest rate is 8% per annum?

8. What is a lower bound for the price of a one-month European put option on a nondividend-paying stock when the stock price is $12, the strike price is $15, and the

risk-free interest rate is 6% per annum?

9. What is a lower bound for the price of a 2-month European put option on a nondividend-paying stock when the stock price is $58, the strike price is $65, and the

risk-free interest rate is 5% per annum?

10. A 1-month European put option on a non-dividend-paying stock is currently

selling for $2.50. The stock price is $47, the strike price is $50, and the risk-free

interest rate is 6% per annum. What opportunities are there for an arbitrageur?

11. The price of a European call that expires in 6 months and has a strike price of $30

is $2. The underlying stock price is $29, and a dividend of $0.50 is expected in 2

months and again in five months. The term structure is flat, with all risk-free interest

rates being 10%. What is the price of a European put option that expires in 6 months

and has a strike price of $30?

12. A US trader buys a European call option on the USD/GBP in order to buy

2,000,000 at USD/GBP 1.5815 in six months. The premium is 2 USD cents per

GBP. The exchange rate is currently at USD/GBP = 1.5815. Under what

circumstances does the trader make a profit? Under what circumstances will the

option be exercised? Draw a diagram showing the variation of the traders profit

with the exchange rate price at the maturity of the option.

How your answer would change in the trader was buying a European put option on

the same exchange rate in order to sell 2,000,000?

13. Calculate the price of a three-month European put option on a non-dividendpaying stock with a strike price of $50 when the current stock price is $50, the riskfree interest rate is 10% per annum, and the volatility is 30% per annum.

14. What difference does it make to your calculations in the above question if a

dividend of $1.50 is expected in two months?

15. What is the price of a European call option on a non-dividend-paying stock when

the stock price is $52, the strike price is $50, the risk-free interest rate is 12% per

annum, the volatility is 30% per annum, and the time to maturity is three months?

16. What is the price of a European put option on a non-dividend-paying stock when

the stock price is $69, the strike price is $70, the risk-free interest rate is 5% per

annum, the volatility is 35% per annum, and the time to maturity is six months?
