Option pricing with Monte Carlo methods
An option price is the
discounted expectation of its
payoff:


Sometimes the expectation
cannot be computed
analytically:
complex product
complex dynamics
Then the integral has to be
computed numerically

Throw the die 10.000 times

Volatility : some definitions

Historical volatility :
annualized standard deviation of the logreturns; measure of
uncertainty/activity

b) Supply and Demand

Theoretical Skew from Prices
Problem : How to compute option prices on an underlying without
options?
For instance : compute 3 month 5% OTM Call from price history only.
1) Discounted average of the historical Intrinsic Values.
Bad : depends on bull/bear, no call/put parity.
2) Generate paths by sampling 1 day return recentered histogram.
Problem : CLT => converges quickly to same volatility for all
strike/maturity; breaks autocorrelation and vol/spot dependency.

Vanilla Options
Simple product, but complex mix of underlying and volatility:
Call option has :
Sensitivity to S :
Sensitivity to : Vega
These sensitivities vary through time and spot, and vol :

Volatility Games
To play pure volatility games (eg bet that S&P vol goes
up, no view on the S&P itself):
Need of constant sensitivity to vol;
Achieved by combining several strikes;
Ideally achieved by a log profile : (variance swaps)

RV/VarS
The pay-off of an OTC Variance Swap can be replicated
by a string of Realized Variance Futures:






From 12/02/04 to maturity 09/17/05, bid-ask in vol:
15.03/15.33
Spread=.30% in vol, much tighter than the typical 1%
from the OTC market
