Black-Scholes Formula Using Long Memory
  • Simple example
  • Black and Scholes theory
  • Fractional Brownian motion
  • Arbitrage in Fractal Market
5. Itô integral and Itô formula

6. New Fractal market

7. Fractal Black and Scholes formula

8. Stochastic volatility and others

1 simple example
1. Simple Example

1.1 A Simple example


Friday, Jul 13-2007, $51.91

1.2 Option

Buy the stock at the current time

Alternatively, buy an option

Option = right(not obligation) to buy (sell) a share of the stock with a specific price K at (or before) a specific future time T

T = Expiration date

K = strike price

Example (call option)

Right to buy one share of MCD at the end of one year with $60


Financial Derivatives

  • European
  • American
  • Call
  • Put

Many Other options

1.3 How to price an option

How to fairly price an option?

If (future) stock price is known then it is easy


Future stock price is unknown

Math model of market

Probability distribution of future stock price

Stochastic Differential Equations

1.4 History

Louis Bachelier

Théorie de la spéculation

Ann. Sci. École Norm. Sup. 1900, 21-86.

IntroducedBrownian motion

Solved problem

1.5 History of Brownian Motion

Robert Brown (1828)

An British botanist observed that

pollen grains suspended in water perform a continual swarming motion

Mathematical Theory

L. Bachalier 1900

A. Einstein 1905

N. Wiener 1923

2 black and scholes theory
2. Black and Scholes Theory

2.1 History, Continued

Bachelier model

can take negative values!!!

Black and Scholes Model

Geometric Brownian motion

2.2. Black-Scholes Model

Market consists of



P(t) is Geometric Brownian Motion

2.3 Black and Scholes Formula

The Price of European call option is given

p = current price of the stock

σ = the volatility of stock price

r = interest rate of the bond

T = expiration time

K = Strike price

It is independent of the mean return of the stock price!!!

New York Timesof Wednesday, 15th October 1997

Scholes and Merton “won the Nobel Memorial Prize in Economics Science yesterday for work that enablesinvestors to price accurately their bets on the future,

a break through that has helped power the explosive growth in financial markets since the 1970’s and plays a profound role in the economics of everyday life.”
2.4 Main Idea and Tool

Itô stochastic calculus

a mathematical tool from probability

stochastic analysis

2.5 Extension of Black and Scholes Models
  • Jump Diffusions
  • Markov Processes
  • Semimartignales
  • Long memory processes

3.1 Long Memory

Long Memory = Joseph Effect



Holy Bible, Genesis (41, 29-30)

Joseph said to the Pharaoh

“… God has shown Pharaoh what he is about to do. Seven yeas of great abundance are coming throughout the land of Egypt, but seven years of famine will follow them. Then all the abundance in Egypt will be forgotten, and the famine will ravage the land. …”

Hurst H.E.spent a lifetime studying the

Nile and the problems related to water storage.

He invented a new statistical method

rescaled range analysis (R/S analysis)

Yearly minimal water levels of the Nile

River for the years 622-1281 (measured

at the Roda Gauge near Cairo)

3.2 Fractional Brownian Motion

Let 0 < H < 1. Fractional Brownian motion with Hurst parameter H is a Gaussian process satisfying

3.3 Properties

1. Self-similar: has the same property law as

2. Long-range dependent if H>1/2

3. If H = 1/2 , standard Brownian motion

4. h>1/2, Positively correlated

5. H<1/2, Negatively correlated

6. Not a semi-martingale

7. Not Markovian

8. Nowhere differentiable

4 arbitrage in fractal market
4. Arbitrage in Fractal Market

4.1 Simple minded Fractal Market

The market consists of a bond and a stock

4.2 There is Arbitrage Opportunity

Arbitrage in a market is an investment strategy

which allows an investor,

who starts with nothing,

to get some wealth

without risking anything

Mathematical Meaning of Arbitrage

Example: 5 shares of GE

8 shares of Sun

If GE goes down $2/share

if Sun goes up $3/share

then wealth change


A portfolio (ut, vt)

At time instant t

ut the total shares in bond

vt the total shares in stock

Let Z be the total wealth at time t associated with the portfolio (ut, vt):

The portfolio is self-financing if

4.2 Arbitrage continued

Arbitrage is a self-financing portfolio such that

5. Itô Integral and Itô formula

5.1 Why Integration

Need to sum, product, limit

5.2 Itô Integral

6. Fractal Market II

6.1 Fractal Market with Wick Product

The market is given by a bond and a stock

6.2 Arbitrage

A portfolio (ut, vt): ut the total investment in bond and vt the total investment in stock.

Let Zt be the total wealth at time t associated with the portfolio (u,v):

The portfolio is self-financing if
