Application of moment expansion method to options square root model

Application of Moment Expansion Method to Options Square Root Model

Yun Zhou

Advisor: Dr. Heston


Approach

Approach

  • Heston (1993) Square Root Model

vt is the instantaneous variance

μ is the average rate of return of the asset.

θ is the long variance, or long run average price variance

κ is the rate at which νt reverts to θ.

is the vol of vol, or volatility of the volatility


Approach continued

Approach Continued

  • Heston closed form solution

    • based on two parts

      1st part: present value of the spot asset before optimal exercise

      2nd part: present value of the strike-price payment

    • P1 and P2 satisfy the backward equation, thus their characteristic function also satisfy the backward equation

  • Measure the distance of these two solutions to determine the highest moment need to use


Approach continued1

Approach Continued

  • Moment Expansion

    terminal condition

  • With the SDE of volatility, formulate the backward equation

  • Solve the coefficients C


Approach continued2

Approach Continued

  • To get coefficients C

    1) Backward equations give a group of linear ODEs:

    Initial conditions:


Approach continued3

Approach Continued

2) Recall matrix exponential

has solution with initial value b


Moments

Moments

  • 1-3rd Moments

  • E(x^3)=6. mu3-9. mu2 v+k2 x (v (3. -1.5 x)+theta (-3.+1.5 x))+v (4.5 rho sigma v-0.75 v2+sigma2 (-3.-3. rho2+1.5 x))+k (v (v (9. -4.5 x)+theta (-9.+4.5 x))+rho sigma (theta (3. -3. x)+v (-6.+6. x)))+mu (v (-9. rho sigma+4.5 v)+k (theta (9. -9. x)+v (-9.+9. x)))

  • Due to computation limit, only 3rd moments get in Mathematica, will use MATLAB in numerical way.


Option price from moments

Option Price from Moments

  • European call option payoff, K is the strike price

  • Corrado and Su (1996) used Skewness and Kurtosis to adjust Black-Scholes option price on a Gram-Charlier density expansion

n(z) is probability density function


Black scholes solution with adjustment

Black-Scholes Solution with Adjustment

Base on Gram-Charlier density expansion, the option price is denoted as

(1)

Where is the Black-Scholes option

Pricing formula, N(d) is cumulative distribution function

represent the marginal effect of nonnormal skewness and

Kurtosis


Implement the moments

Implement the Moments

  • Get moments from the Moment Function by

  • After get

  • (2)

  • (3)

  • Implement (2) and (3) into (1), will get Option price based on Gram-Charlier Expansion
